We recently stayed at the hotel for 3 nights; it was our first trip to Charleston. The Planters Inn is the type of hotel that is almost impervious to criticism. The lobby and rooms are impeccably decorated, and every staff member was efficient and genuinely pleased to help. Everyone also remembered our names and addressed us by name each time we met somewhere in the hotel. The restaurant in the hotel (Peninsula Grill) is outstanding, and right now stands as the best restaurant we've ever been to. The sincerity of the hotel staff extended to the restaurant, where the chef personally came to our table to ask about our meal and thank us for visiting. My only very minor complaint was some street noise. In particular, there was a street musician who would park himself, a xylophone and an amplifier across the street from the hotel each night and play as late as 10:30 pm. It forced us to close our windows on pleasant, mild evenings when we would have slept with them open. Overall, it was a memorable time spent, and we will be back.
