Looking forward to staying again! The room was beautiful and the location was perfect, I loved the patio on the piazza. We did not dine at the Peninsula Grill but hope to next time. Dined at Hank's and High Cotton.

Stayed in Room 101 - next to lobby on first floor and at street level. Had to keep blinds and shades closed when in room or people walking on street could see right into room. Room size and decor were very nice. A/C worked perfectly. Bathroom larger than average - shower pressure and volume was awful. Wife could not wash...

We travel all over the world and this place ranks among our top three places we have ever stayed. If you want clean comfortable rooms and high end service look no further. The location is also perfect.

This place is just a delight. Staff could not be kinder or more accommodating. Exceedingly comfortable and perfectly located for meandering around downtown and to water. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get away and recharge.

I'm not sure what the inn means but in this case inn is a great place in the great location. We had a room on the 2nd floor facing the internal garden. Totally recommended. As VIP Expedia guests we got a bottle of French champagne, a nice touch. Excellent service, great attention to details - all works well. The breakfast...

The Planters Inn is just what we look for in a hotel. It is very well appointed and located near the hub of activity. The desk staff was extremely helpful with directions and dining recommendations, and housekeeping made sure our room was perfect every day. The dining room was peaceful with great food and service.

Planter''s Inn was suggested by a friend and lived up to his recommendation. Couldn't have had a nicer place to stay on our first visit to Charleston.

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. Are you excited for your getaway to Charleston? We are excited to welcome you to Planters Inn. ... more   less
