very comfortable accommodations with excellent service. Small luxury hotel similar to those we have stayed in in Europe. Very convenient to fine shopping, dining & historical sites. Stop every year on way to Florida.

The room was good. Clean. Comfortable. Not fabulous- since it was a bit dated. Very roomy. Great location right on the market. The restaurant is top notch, but pricey. I thought it was worth it, but if it seems too high, just go for dessert. They serve an unbelievable mile-high coconut cake that is to die for.

The Planters is a very charming and centrally located hotel. While we did enjoy our stay here, for the star rating and price paid for this hotel, there was nothing that we were really blown away by. The room itself was nicely decorated, but only had one small window which made it very dark. I thought the bathroom could use...

Not your usual hotel. Old South charm with warm entry, high ceilings, heavy molding, beautiful paintings, carpets. Walking distance to many restaurants. Very nice rooms, beds, bath, linens. The staff was helpful and friendly. Parking is an issue as you have to use valet or public parking which is 1 1/2 blocks away. A bit awkward strolling down the street...

Dear bhatcher123, Thank you for taking the time to post this review. Your observations are quite thoughtful. Planters Inn is indeed unusual! Guests quite frequently remark that a stay at Planters Inn feels more like a visit with old friends in their grand Charleston home than a traditional hotel experience. It is a pleasure to know you found "Old South...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Holding court in the very heart of Charleston's famed Historic District, the 64-room Planters Inn Relais & Châteaux is the city's iconic grande dame hotel. Uniformed doormen welcome every arrival, ushering guests inside the gloriously restored circa 1844 building to a sanctuary of elegant style and genteel service. Voted #1 Best U.S. Boutique Hotel by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine, Planters Inn is a world of civility, sumptuous cuisine, and cultural pursuits. Soaring ten-foot ceilings, dozens of working fireplaces, and a stunning collection of antiques and Baker Historic Charleston décor, including a sumptuous four poster bed in every guest room, create a luxurious ambiance described by Travel + Leisure as "akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion." Hushed tones of buttercream, Lowcountry greens, and pale powder blue paint the walls, while raw silk fabrics frame the windows. There's also more to Planters Inn than meets the eye: A hidden courtyard illuminated by flickering carriage lanterns provides a beguiling entry to Peninsula Grill, the city's foremost dining experience. Planters Inn and Peninsula Grill are longstanding members of Relais & Châteaux, the exclusive collection of luxury boutique hotels and gourmet restaurants located in the world's most romantic, most cultured, and most memorable destinations. Are you excited for your getaway to Charleston? We are excited to welcome you to Planters Inn. ... more   less
