Loved the Planters Inn. Visited July 2015 and couldn't have picked a better place. The manager Bradley Dickerson found out it was my 50th bday and upgraded us to a suite. (Sorry that we never met him). Room was beautiful and spotless. Bed comfy but very high up. Even with stool might be tough for older folks. (At 50 I'm...

My wife and I loved Planters Inn. Great location. Beautiful property. Lovely room. And a welcoming and hospitable staff. Our room featured double-paned windows, a really nice feature that helped keep out noise from Market Street. As with all of Charleston, Planters Inn was full of character and charm.

My husband and I are seniors. We had only a short two night stay. It was wonderful! Although our trip was in July, and it was terribly hot, thanks to your staff, we had a great time. The service was impeccable, food was great.

I love the Planters Inn. My only complaint is wine should be offered in the lobby in the afternoon or champagne when you check in for the price you pay to stay there . The location is wonderful. Gigi's was excellent for lunch . Our room was beautiful and furnished with pretty antiques. We will stay there again.

Loved the location and style of this hotel. A little disappointed that the outlets in our bathroom didn't work, especially considering the price per night we paid! I did not ask for repairs b/c truthfully I didn't want the annoyance of a repairman in our room. Also, the '80's toilet was kinda wierd. Small upgrade, big reward!

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
