My boyfriend and I stayed at the Plantes Inn, in a Kings Deluxe room that was so beautiful and very spacious. It capture the Charleston charm I wanted with a king four poster bed with a canopy. It was very clean, it had beautiful decor and a nice sitting area with a window that overlooked the courtyard which so relaxing and beautiful. If you stay at the planters inn, you have to stay in one of the rooms with the courtyard. My boyfriend and I sat in the courtyard and drank wine one night for an hour and then just walked right into our room. The favorite thing about the room was the whirlpool tub in the bathroom. So romantic and so big! I loved it. The rest of the hotel was beautifully decorated as well and luxerious too.
The service at the hotel was wonderful, one of the best attributes. Bo and Jeffrey were wonderful attendants and we never had one problem. Whenever we needed anything is was delievered to our room very promptly.
The location of Planters Inn is definately something to brag about. We never had to drive anywhere as we were in the center of it all, right next to a ton of resturants and the market. When staying in charleston, location is important because it is hard to drive anywhere so you want to be able to walk. I walked around Charleston and saw where the other hotels were located, and Planters Inn definately has the best location!
We also had dinner at the Pensuila Grill. It was very romantic and one of the best meals my boyfriend has ever had, and the wine was the best I have ever tasted. It was expensive, but worth everypenny. Our waitor was very attentive, knowledgeable and nice. He was the one that recommended the amazing wine!
I can't rave enough about this hotel. This was by far the best hotel my boyfriend and I have stayed at. I was very weary about staying here because of some of the reviews but it exceded by expecations by far! Some people complain about the noise in Charleston but I never heard a thing in the room! I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and I plan on it! To sum it up, ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!!
