Planters Inn is a fabulous place to stay. Historic, quaint, we'll kept with great staff! Located right in front of the Charleston market and an easy stroll to the shopping district. We will return in a heartbeat.

This is a great place and it was a great weekend. Lots to see and do. It was great being in Charleston for Thanksgiving. We will have more sightseeing to do next time. We'll see you again in November 2017.

Dear R3100MDdavidp, With weather that is almost always sunny and warm coupled with delicious cuisine from Peninsula Grill (and no kitchen to clean after the meal), the perks of spending Thanksgiving at Planters Inn in Charleston are incredible. Kudos to you for discovering our November secret! We look forward to welcoming you back to Planters Inn next November. To ensure... More

Well above average. Charleston is a lovely city. Restaurants are over rated but the city itself is a gem. Trees, old homes and shops, and warm friendly people. Sophisticated. I would consider living there at some point. The politics scare me of course.

We spent 4 days in beautiful Charleston at the Planter’s inn and had a great time there. The hotel is very charming, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the location is ideal.

Perfect hotel location for easy access to most of the memorable sites in Charleston. Favorite restaurant Jestine's just down the street and easy walking down to the Battery. Great breakfast spots, Toast and Dixie Supply close by too.

Peninsula Grill and the catering staff did an amazing job with our wedding. We had both our wedding and reception there. The courtyard was beautiful and Anaysis being new - did a nice job keeping everything together. Unfortunately the hotel side forgot hospitality.

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
