We have stayed at many hotels in Charleston, but we find Planters Inn to be our favorite. It's location is perfect, right at the corner of Market and Meeting. Once you valet your car, you are done driving. Everything is right there. The rooms are big and comfortable. They might lack some of the newer amenities, but they more than make up for it in pure charm. It's proximity and association with the Pennisula Grill, one of Charleston's finest, is great as well. Beyond this, the staff will know your name 5 minutes after you check in and are always at your beck and call. If you are looking for a classic, quaint Charleston hotel, this is the place.
