My wife and I celebrated my birthday this year in Charleston. Our stay at Planters Inn was a wonderful addition to my special week. We love independent hotels such as the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. The Planters was just as wonderful! The staff were all courteous and helped us choose dining and tourist sites. The Peninsula Grill was a treat! Ask for Derrick and order the Lobster 3-way! On our next visit to Charleston we will definitely be returning to Planters.

As you enter the Inn, it seems the cares of the day just meltaway and you are suddenly relaxed and pampered. The salon in the first floor stocked with fresh coffee, ice water, and warm cider is wonderful. Rooms are spacious, clean, and there is attention to detail. Be sure to sample the turn down treats. They are made in- house and are delectable. Location is excellent for touring the downtown area, and only 10 minute trip to get over the bridge to the Mt.Pleasant side of town. The valet parking is a definite plus with the limited public parking downtown. Due to other family commitments, was not able to dine in the Peninsula Grill. I'm sure if it follows suit with the hotel, it does not disappoint. Enjoy!

Dear ATW2461,
“A Must Stay”…..is perfect suggestion to all reading our Trip Advisor reviews. Your descriptions and summation offer a candid view of our small boutique property that we certainly agree include a “must stay” for everyone visiting Charleston. As South Carolina’s only member of Relais and Chateaux, we stand above the crowd of numerous lodging choices. We are pleased to read your positive comments and do agree that a return trip is needed to experience the award winning cuisine of Chef Graham Dailey and the team at Peninsula Grill; a dining experience well worth another visit.
Until then, best Wishes and thank you from the all of us,
Bradley Dickerson, Hotel Manager

We stayed here for a weekend away. It is an excellent hotel, the room was large quiet and with good facilities. The food was very good can not complain at all. The location is great we could come and go as we pleased. The only comment is that it is on the expensive side...

The Planters Inn met all my expectations for a small hotel displaying what I believe was the perfect Charleston experience. My room was elegantly furnished and the bathroom very well appointed. The staff was courteous and helpful. Dinning at the Inn's Pennisula Grille was top notch and a wonderful experience for taste and atmosphere.

Wow... what a wonderful weekend we had. Planters inn is amazing and met all our expectations! When we got there, they placed us in a courtyard room. I was disappointed because I specifically made sure we had reservations for the main building in a grand king. We were told we were "Upgraded" so we gave it a try. The charm was quickly diminishing as we were trying to sleep and people were outside on the shared piaza having a good time. It was very noisy! The next morning, we went to have our room changed to the main building. HUGE DIFFERENCE!! This was what I was expecting at Planter's Inn. It was elegant, romantic, honestly, it was PERFECT! I feel like we wasted 1 night of our first getaway with my husband since we had kids, but the second evening was wonderful. And Tristen was such an amazing, knowledgable, helpful gem to the Planter's Inn! We are so grateful for all his help and advice! Also, Peninsula Grill is a must to complete a perfect weekend! We will be back... and we will make sure we do not get "upgraded" to the shared piaza rooms!

Room Tip: Stay in main building.

Dear Robin,
We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit and we were able to help you locate a room in the 1844 building to conclude your stay. Our property includes up to six various room categories and two buildings surrounding a beautiful charleston garden coutyard. Each of our guest rooms are known to offer luxurious accommodation that all afford various vues of the property and historic district. One favorite aspect of our piazza location rooms is the shared veranda and courtyard location. The Deluxe King rooms are perfect to enjoy our continental breakfast or relax for an afternoon and enjoying the serenity of the courtyard below. However, we are positive you have made your preference for the next “getaway” trip in include a room in the 1844 building for the charm and character of our historic property as your preference.
We look forward to assisting you on the next visit,
Best Wishes,
Bradley Dickerson, Hotel Manager
