“New favorite place!”
Reviewed 8 June 2011

I have nothing but praise for this beautiful hotel. The service was wonderful. We arrived at 5:00 am and they already had a room for us. It is located in a lovely corner of town next to the market. and in walking distance of both the battery and the aquarium. The peninsula restaurant next door has an amazing breakfast for only $16. (Must eat their shrimp and grits!) Our room was on the second floor on the market street side, but we heard no street noise whatever. I recommend it for everyone.

My husband surprised me with a weekend stay here for our anniversary. I am very impressed by the kind, corteous staff and the impressive welcome. A refreshing wine and chocolate covered strawberries was in our room to greet us..we had a fabulous stay. Try the carriage tour. They'll pick you up right in front if the inn. We'll be back for sure!

We so enjoyed my husband's birthday stay right from the beginning. We were met at the curb by cuteous, efficient young men that took care of all our luggage, etc. We were greeted inside by helpful desk attendents and they allowed us to enter our room early because it was ready - very nice after a 2 hour trip. Refreshments are served in the parlor all day - we utilized those as we toured about town; it was nice to come back to sit for a while and relax before we started out again. Our room was great. Our whirlpool huge tub was fabulous. They even put a bottle of champagne in the room to celebrate the birthday.
We ate at the Pennisula Grill also and had a wonderful meal. We would go back and stay here again. We actually visited many other hotel and inns around the market and knew we had picked the best one - nothing compared to the Planters. Thank you so much for making our stay relaxing and special. Hope to see you soon.

We have stayed many times in Charleston but this was the first at the Planters Inn. It was a very enjoyable stay. We arrived very early in the day and were pleasantly surprised when they had our room almost ready. We had lunch and when we returned, our bags were in the room. We were located on the 2nd floor, room 230, a Grand King. The room was large with the bed, 2 chairs and table as well as TV Cabinet and still had amble space to move around. Great location at one end of the market. The only bad thing was the construction at the market but that had nothing to do with Inn. We had breakfast at the Inn and it was very good. Would stay here again.

WE WILL! Beautiful, in a place and time of greater hospitality and a genuine warmth not felt in many places. But this is Charleston. The Planters Inn has a living room at its entrance, heavenly four poster beds, a southern garden surrounded by only three stories of rooms, a restaurant draped in southern elegance with great steaks, great seafood and the best grits in the south. At the corner of Market and Meeting, you are at the center of everything you want to do. When you check out, you will be happy that you stepped up to the quality of the Planters Inn. Y'All COME BACK NOW!
