My sister and I stayed here for two nights and could not have been happier with the experience, room and service! First of all the location is superb, near shopping, restaurants and tour start-ups. My sister has difficulty walking and the location could not have been better! The valet parking saves time and walking from parking lots further from the hotel. The service was impeccable with the concierge suggesting and making all our dinner reservations, a must if you want to eat at just about any restaurant in town. The King room was very big with a very generous marbled bathroom and two big closets. It had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel and I told the staff so. Decor and maid service was also impeccable. The downstairs lounge was nice to sit in early in the morning for coffee and in the afternoon for tea or punch. I will definitely make the Planters Inn my only stay in Charleston. Can't wait to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Holding court in the very heart of Charleston's famed Historic District, the 64-room Planters Inn Relais & Châteaux is the city's iconic grande dame hotel. Uniformed doormen welcome every arrival, ushering guests inside the gloriously restored circa 1844 building to a sanctuary of elegant style and genteel service. Voted #1 Best U.S. Boutique Hotel by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine, Planters Inn is a world of civility, sumptuous cuisine, and cultural pursuits. Soaring ten-foot ceilings, dozens of working fireplaces, and a stunning collection of antiques and Baker Historic Charleston décor, including a sumptuous four poster bed in every guest room, create a luxurious ambiance described by Travel + Leisure as "akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion." Hushed tones of buttercream, Lowcountry greens, and pale powder blue paint the walls, while raw silk fabrics frame the windows. There's also more to Planters Inn than meets the eye: A hidden courtyard illuminated by flickering carriage lanterns provides a beguiling entry to Peninsula Grill, the city's foremost dining experience. Planters Inn and Peninsula Grill are longstanding members of Relais & Châteaux, the exclusive collection of luxury boutique hotels and gourmet restaurants located in the world's most romantic, most cultured, and most memorable destinations.
