“The Perfect Wedding Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2011

Our daughter was married in Charleston, SC on 9/24/11, and the reception was held in the ballroom of Charleston Place Hotel. The reception was the best! The wedding planner, Jessica Smithson, and the florist at Bloom in Charleston Place, Elizabeth Klumb, were knowledgeable and professional. Our every need was met, and we felt valued as guests and as clients. Many of our guests stayed in the hotel, as well. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The beds provided total comfort. The location of the hotel is unbeatable. It was the perfect venue for our wedding celebration weekend.

Room Tip: All of our friends and family had rooms in various parts of the hotel, and they all said their rooms...

My daughter and her fiance chose Charleston Place Hotel for their wedding and reception on 9/24/2011, and I am more than pleased with their choice! This is the most beautiful hotel in Charleston, and the wedding specialist at CPH, Jessica Smithson, is phenomenal! From the moment we signed the contract, until the closing moments of the reception, Jessica was there with professionalism, kindness, expertise, wonderful advice...she is the best!!! The ceremony was held in the Market Street Courtyard, which is gorgeous every day, but on the wedding day, the courtyard had been decorated so elegantly and tastefully...it's beauty took your breath! And the same is true for the reception site we used, the Palmetto Cafe! The food was amazing, and the staff was exceptional! Everyone at the hotel goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable, and to meet any need you might have. There is not one aspect of the wedding day that was not perfect, and Jessica was always in the background, quietly performing her magic, making it all happen! I would recommend this hotel, and Jessica Smithson, to any bride and groom!

I made a reservation for this hotel back in March 2011, for a night in September 2011. The night was for my brother and his new bride to stay the night of their wedding.
Beginning in March, I started corresponding with the staff at Charleston Place to make the reservation. I encountered the most awesome customer service I have yet to experience in booking a room. The process was a breeze, the night of the stay, a complimentary bottle of champagne and berries were sent to the room. I cannot say enough good things about the service I received from Charleston Place! It was nothing short of classy, personable, and pure Carolina hospitality. I have not had the chance to stay at the Place myself, but my brother reported that it was unbelievable. Customer service is not dead in the South, not even close.

My wife and I stayed here the weekend of our wedding and it was absolutely incredible. Amazing rooms, friendly staff and service. We also got a great view of Charleston. I'd recommend it to anyone!

Gorgeous hotel, perfect location in the heart of Charleston, nice rooftop patio to take the sun by the spa & indoor pool (no outdoor pool though). Stayed on the club level through Amex amenities and the perks were excellent. Afternoon tea everyday (which is so nice & southern) which offeres snacks & desserts, open bar with plentiful snacks for happy hour, etc. Almost felt guilty going out to other bars & restaurants!

Room Tip: Club Level best value

Being in the hospitality business for my entire adult life I have been blessed to experience a high level of luxury and service at great rates. This experience was over the top! Do yourself a favor and spring for the concierge level ... it is a non-stop treat. It was the perfect gathering spot for our small group ... many of us have not seen one another for over 20 years. The hotel is very stately and oozes with southern charm. The rooms were well appointed and the amenities were delightful ... I loved the BIG bath tub ... it made me want to sink down in hot bubbles and read a good book. Unfortunately, time was too limited as there is so much to do all within walking distance. The food is fantastic, the service was outstanding and the location is divine. This is a wonderful historic city and a MUST DO hotel.

Room Tip: The concierge level is well worth the added fee.
