It is rare in today's world to find a place where there is genuine care & exceptional service. The staff at The Planters Inn exceeded our high expectations(we had heard they were good). When I mistakenly booked the wrong dates, Andrea pleaded my situation with the manager who went of his way to oblige. When I asked pre our arrival... More

But the staff- WOW the best we have encountered anywhere ever. We had our last dinner of the trip at the Peninsula and we left smiling and satisfied. The coconut cake is a must. The Planter's Inn is like... More

We stayed at the Planters Inn for my wife'so 6th birthday. The property is well run, the staff is friendly and attentive and the room was wonderful and spotlessly clean. However, we had the hotel make us reservation at the Peninsula Grill for dinner. When we arrived, despite being formally dressed and guests of a suite in the hotel, the... More

The staff is very professional and accommodating, the rooms and common areas are impeccably clean and tidy, and the location is perfect if you plan any number of downtown activities. Although we did not have time to dine at... More

The planters in was both charming and updated. It was cozy to the point you felt that a guest in a friends home. They went out of their way to accomadateI our request as we extended our stay two extra days. I would encourage anybody visiting Charleston to select the Planters INN for its location, elegance, food and wonderful staff.

Planters Inn was a wonderful hotel. Very comfortable beds. Spacious rooms. We stayed in the queen bedroom suite with 2 queen beds and 2 bathrooms. Perfect location on Market street. We were able to walk everywhere. The staff was really friendly. We had a great weekend. We celebrated our daughters birthday at Peninsula Grill and it was wonderful
