the dining room experience needs improvement. The dining room was loud, guests wore clothes not in keeping with a quality restaurant, the service was slow, and food had to be returned. The experience at the hotel could not have been better. The service, room, and amenities were all excellent.

I choose this inn due to reviews and write ups in Conde Nast etc... and due to central location and great on site dining ( The Peninsula). The room was around $600.00 per night which to me usually commands a certain level of room features that were lacking in this in. While I understand the limitations of space and that...

The rooms are very nice and well appointed. The staff is courteous and efficient, with the exception of spotty turn-down service. The location is handy to most of the historic district and King Street shopping. All these things come at a price.

If you like a hotel to feel like home while your away, Planters is the place for you. This survey is annoying requiring all the characters in order to finish and submit. I would have had nothing bad to say otherwise.

The original Planters Inn is a grand old Richardsonian affair that is now a performing arts building. This appropriates the name for an upscale motel attached to a well refurbished older building. Comfy place to stay. Nice Fiberglas tubs/showers.

Planters Inn is a lovely inn with the highest quality service staff you would expect at any high end hotel or inn. Our room was in a newer wing, which lacked the charm or feel of a Charleston Inn.

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
