During my recent stay at the lovely Planters Inn in Charleston, I got caught up in one of those horrible "weather events" that play havoc with airline schedules. The front desk, in particular and a lovely woman named Bertha, went out of her way to make sure we were comfortably accommodated. Frequent travelers recognize there are many nice properties out there. In my experience, it's the level of service that sets apart the great properties from the nice. The Planters Inn was great for us that weekend in December.
- 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.
