My brother, his wife and I spent several days at the Planters Inn in Charleston, a Relais and Chateau affiliated hotel. Not only is the Planters Inn perfectly located in the historic district, but a respite even in the midst of a beautiful southern city. The rooms are well appointed and quiet, the restaurant and bar first class, and the... More

The hotel is perfectly situated in walk to anywhere location. The concierge was helpful in arranging tours. The Peninsula Grill offers a bountiful inexpensively priced breakfast: a big surprise! We also enjoyed dinner at the hotel, which... More

My wife and I enjoyed our two-day stay very much. The inn is nicely decorated, both in common spaces and our room. The location is terrific. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and reasonably large. The inn's restaurant (Planter's Grill) is outstanding with excellent food and service. The restaurant and inn are not inexpensive,... More

From what I can gather, staying at a nice hotel in a good location for walking historic Charleston is a surprisingly expensive undertaking, and many of the hotels are fully booked well in advance. Using tripadvisor as a guide I settled on the Planter's Inn and booked their last standard king room for $400/night. The lobby and adjoining lounge areas... More

The entire time I was here, I felt that the staff was incredibly judgmental of me and my boyfriend because we are very young compared to their usual clientele (we are in our late 20s and perhaps look more like early to mid 20s - the other guests that we saw were likely in their 40s-50s and above).

Maybe my expectations were too high. Maybe I thought anything in that price range would be "super". It is a lovely inn. The problems started when I got an email asking if Guest Services could assist with our visit. I requested one night be canceled and help with dinner reservations. No response. I called. The person was on vacation. I... More

When we visit Charleston, this is our "go to" hotel. I love the ambience of the entire property. The fact that you can park your car and walk to everything is also a plus. The staff has always been helpful in suggesting the newest restaurants to try. My biggest complaint is that on several occasions when driving back from Florida... More
