This is a large gem hotel right in the center of downtown. You can't get a more convenient location. We were there for five days and had a newly renovated king room, which was gorgeous. Marble bathroom, elegant gray and white furnishings. A nice sitting area with two chairs, amazingly comfy king bed--all around just awesomely clean and elegantly comfortable.... More

We were visiting Charleston on a college tour trip. We found Charleston Place hit or miss, mostly good stuff though. Some minor maintenance issues in the newly decorated room. My biggest beef was there weren't more choices for food at the hotel. The main restaurant is a steak house so lots of heavy meals. We wanted to eat there b/c... More

The Belmond Charleston Place was an excellent place to stay from start to finish. We enjoyed the accommodations as well as the Charleston Grill and the Palmetto Café. Great location in Charleston too.

We got an unannounced wake up call at 600am and when we told the front desk they were not concerned. It would have been a nice hotel if it was half the price . The food was also average -$25 for a hamburger at the cafe !!

Outstanding location, stellar accommodations, and superior staff make this THE PLACE to stay for a Charleston vacation. My wife and I cannot say enough good things about our stay on the concierge floor.

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location with marginal food and mediocre service. In a town dedicated to hospitality it falls far short. Next trip we will return to the many boutiques and fine restaurants and will skip this one.

Dear Dennis, Thank you for your recent review. It sounds like you enjoyed the hotel’s physical features and its central location. However, I’m sorry to hear that the service and food were not up to your standards. We have multiple Four Diamond and Forbes Four Star restaurants on property and it’s always our goal to exceed our guests’ expectations. I... More

Charleston Place is first class without being pretentious. Location couldn't be better - with historic walks and fantastic shopping only steps away. Staff members are all friendly and helpful. The spa and pool deck are relaxing. It's at the top of my list of favorite places to stay across the country. It's perfect for business meetings and couples /firiends getaways... More

We stayed here for 4 nights as a family. Rooms: We were located on the 7th floor. We got a room that was not yet renovated. The air conditioning was so loud that we chose to open the windows at night rather than have it drone. The technician told us that the entire hotel suffered from this problem, even the... More

I loved every minute of it -- even if the food was very, very expensive. This establishment knows how to "do hotel right". First of all, the lobby is fabulous, the rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. Room service is delivered very promptly and with finesse. Everything in the room worked right; nothing leaked, squeaked, or smelled weird and the... More

We enjoyed our stay here, if only for one night. The location is perfect and we were looking forward to our stay. We knew that the hotel was undergoing construction, but I was assured prior to our arrival that our room would be far away from it. Just walking through the grand lobby when we arrived, we felt that we... More
