Is there a swimming pool?
Thank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, we do not. That said we are in the heart of the Historic District and within walking distance, to many of the highlights, Charleston has to offer. I hope we have an opportunity to welcome you to Charleston and Planters Inn.

There is valet parking for about $30/day. Nothing is free since space is at such a premium. Maybe find a safe lot away from the center of town and Uber over if you are staying multiple days? Good luck.

Are there televisions in each room?
Yes, but they are on the small side, maybe 27-32 inch. They are flat screen but old and low end brand.

"We stayed in a suite on the second floor on the street side of property, not a busy time of year, thus we heard minimum street noise."
"Our room was overlooking the intersection of downtown, not noisy but a bit bright at night, just needed to close the blinds"
"Don't have street level room as noisy."
"Premier Grand King was lovely and comfortable."
"Don't splurge on the suites; they're not worth the extra cost, at all."
US$248 - US$585 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
