Very enjoyable stay! The downtown location was ideal for attending the South Eastern Wildlife Exposition. The close proximity to excellent dining, shopping, historic sites and Southern charm was a highlight of our visit.

Great service, Centrally located. Quiet. Loved the extra security of having our room cards work the elevator. Staff was wonderful. Food at the Peninsula Grill was some of the best in town. Beds were very comfortable.

We stayed here 3 nights for a wedding. I enjoyed our corner room. Glad we had the extra Windows or I think it would have been dark. It is quaint. Not luxurious. Great location in historic downtown.

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.
