Manasquan, New Jersey
Reviewed 9 March 2016

Do all the touristy things. Carriage ride with a driver who really knows his history (Philip). Go to the market and purchase Carolina Gold rice and a Sweetgrass Basket. Make an appointment to visit Jonathan Green's studio. A real treat. Sean Brock restaurant is fab! All with the help of our concierge.

You can never go wrong with a visit to the Planters Inn. Southern charm at it's best. The quality of the rooms is uncompromising, right down to the fresh flowers. The location is ideal, as it is just steps to the Market and easy walking distance to all the must see sights in Charleston.

We stayed at Planters Inn for a few nights recently, and very much enjoyed our stay. The location is near perfect in downtown Charleston, and the service is impeccable. The rooms are exceedingly comfortable. Although it has a high price tag, I would definitely recommend staying here if you have the opportunity.

Great location with excellent facilities. Staff are charming. Loved the room and the balcony over the courtyard. The bar was fun and the coconut cake was excellent and took some home for friends. Never had to take the car - the places we went to were all in walking distance.

A beautiful hotel that is central to lots of Charleston's attractions. The staff was most helpful and even called weeks ahead of our reservation to see if we needed help with dining reservations. If we head back to Charleston soon, we will definitely stay there again!!!

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
