We had a good stay here in October. The Planters Inn is located right by the market in downtown Charleston, walking distance to everything. The lobby is small but nice. The hotel is not traditional in that the rooms, at least in our building, opened up onto a covered walkway - like a motel. The rooms themselves were very nice, with a king-size four poster bed, flat screen tv, comfortable armchairs, and a writing table. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was also very large and nice, with a large soaking tub and all marble throughout. While we were completely satisfied with our stay, this hotel is not as charming or luxurious as other places I have stayed in Charleston. We come to Charleston every year and try to stay at a new place every time; this was a nice choice but not our favorite. I think something a little more unique, B&B style would be more fitting for the full Charleston experience. That said, the location can't be beat, and was extremely convenient to the waterfront park, restaurants, the beautiful neighborhoods, King Street shopping, and the home and garden tour we attended during our stay.
