“Beautiful hotel with fantastic service and central location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2009

We had a group of 8 women that stayed at the Planter's Inn, and the hotel catered to all of our needs, from supplying wine glasses and corkscrews to changing our rooms so that they were sdjacent to each other. The staff was warm and helpful, especially the bellmen. We stayed in the governor's suite and an adjacent room, and we had a wonderful time. The beds and bedding were superb and we all left happy and well rested :) Will come again!

Antiques abound!! The Staff were friendly and helpful! Our room was spotless and lovely. The antiques that surround you from the moment you walk in the door certainly set the tone for the Historic Charleston visit we were looking for. We dined at the Peninsula Grille which is part of the Inn and had a fantastic and elegant meal!!

This quaint, classic hotel looked like a page out of a Architectural Digest magazine. You really feel like you are someplace special when staying in this hotel. They really go the extra mile to give you the full Charleston experience, from the local candies by your bedside, to the beautiful roses in the bathroom, to the locally made baskets in the room. You feel like your someplace really special very different from any chain hotel of equal quality. Also, the location is right on Market Street, a short walk to the battery, and king street. You really couldn't ask for a better location to see all the city has to offer. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Charleston after having such a lovely, pleasant experience at Planters Inn.

My husband and I visited Charleston for the first time, and decided to splurge a little on a first class hotel in a great location. Planter's Inn certainly didn't disappoint. Our room was large, beautifully decorated, and there was great attention paid to every detail. The staff was more than pleasant, knowledgable, and helpful. Their suggestions for resturants and places to visit were right on target. They also provided easy directions and maps to our various destinations. They made us feel special from the moment we walked in the door, until we left, 7 days later. I would recommend this excellent hotel to anyone who wants to pamper themselves. Thanks to the Planter's for a wonderful memory!
