This place was the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed at. There wasn't a speck of dust on any of the hall light fixtures, and there are many. It was top notch from the rooms, location, staff and food. We were able to walk to every place we wanted to go. Restaurant was delicious. I can't wait to visit and stay... More

The location is terrific, couldn't get any better. The staff were terrific, every request handled with expertise. The rooms were wonderful. The feeling of elegant service with friendly approachable concierge/front desk staff. Definitely coming back, the ambience echoed that of Charleston - a city and a hotel we will visit again. Also dined in restaurant - excellent!

Very helpful staff clean room, good service daily. I would stay here again if I ever come back to Charleston. I would also recommend to a friend. Great location. They also kept out bags all day and evening after we checked out as we shopped and made the most of our last day.

I am very picky when it comes to hotels, and this place truly blew me away. My husband were in Charleston celebrating a special occasion, and Planters Inn came recommended by a friend.

Perfect location, beautifully appointed, exceptional service, comfortable beds, spacious and quiet. The parlor is a nice touch that serves little bites, coffee or tea throughout the day. We were able to walk everywhere from The nicest restaurants to the marketplace, shopping, mansions and shore.

We have visited Charleston many times but never had the experience we had while staying at the Planter's Inn. The rooms are well appointed and spacious with classic southern charm, and enormous bathrooms. The staff is very knowledgeable about the city and made some wonderful recommendations. They helped arrange a lovely private carriage ride and one of the best walking... More

I was here two nights on a business trip...and did NOT want to leave!! This hotel has all the amenities of a large institution with the charm of a well-appointed B&B.

Spent a night at Planters Inn passing through to Hilton Head. Location is nice if you want to stay in downtown Charleston. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The valet was great.

The Planters Inn exemplifies southern hospitality in the heart of Charleston. The service from the bell hop, the front desk, and the housekeeping staff was impeccable. The availability of refreshments and treats really hits the spot on a hot summer day. We stayed in a plantation king room which was very generous in size. Because the hotel is only four... More
