Excellent service from the evening "turn down" service to the chocolates on the night stands to the sweet tea awaiting you in the lobby sitting room after a hot day touring lovely Charleston. Our itinerary was planned by the excellent and attentive Concierge Jack Davis. A fuss was made as it was our Anniversary and we very much appreciated the...

Not much for doing reviews but this place was special. I can best describe the Planter's Inn as smooth and soft. Outstanding room, can't imagine any finer in Charleston. I have not slept in a finer bed. Great location, never took the car out over 4 days. Gigi's was excellent for lunch. Hanks Seafood, food was cooked perfectly. Polite people...

I would definetly recommend Planters Inn to my friends and family. Upon arrival I was promptly greeted by the valet who escorted me to the front desk. The front desk was friendly and accommodating. I arrived at 1:00 and they worked deligently to find me a clean and available room. I was able to check in early and relax before...

If you really want to live it up right, this is the place. Located perfectly in the historic district of Charleston, on the corner of Meeting (main) Street and Market (the big market), almost everything is walkable from Planters. Our package included breakfast and they have coffee and tea service every morning and that plus cookies each evening in their...

Perfect place to stay. The hotel was very charming . The room was beautiful. The courtyard was a lovely place to read . The planters inn is steps away from the famous craft market and all the highly recommended restaurants were within walking distance . You are able to catch a carriage ride a half a block away and walk...

Overall very nice boutique hotel with Old Charleston charm and gracious staff. Could probably use a bit of updating, including an onsite fitness facility. A fitness facility is offered at their sister property, but it would have been nice to have one at the hotel.

Its easy to see why the Planters Inn was selected as one of the best hotels in the country. From the downtown location, to the oversized rooms and beds. Everything about our stay was memorable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We had read the seriously favorable reviews and were excited to be staying at this boutique hotel. Here are our observations: First the good: 1. It’s a Relais & Chateaux hotel (presumably that explains the $300+-a-night room charge). It has a charming street presence. 2. It’s in the middle of town: walk out the door and you are in the...
