“Southern Comfort !”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

I stayed there in June for a business event and this Hotel was as good as any I have ever stayed. It's location is in walking distance to the sights of the town and the staff, the room and the ambience invites you to stay and feel like home. Great place for leisure and business travelers. First class all the way.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms, but the property is expansive and folks who have a problem with walking shou...

We stayed at the Belmond Charleston Place Hotel for four nights over the July 4th weekend. We chose a king BR on the Club level which has a private key access. The room was clean and the AC worked well...although the rooms on the two Club floors have not yet been renovated. Lobby areas are upscale and the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. We were very pleased with the Club floor amenities. Drinks and snacks were available at all hours of the day (continental breakfast, light snacks mid-day, and desserts at night). The hotel's location was great as well. We are returning to Charleston in September and have already booked two rooms at the Belmond Charleston Place Hotel again. I wish to personally thank the reservations manager as well as Alexis (reservation staff) for handling my requests so graciously and efficiently! We are looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: Club level rooms are on the two highest floors and offer food and drinks throughout the day.

I stayed two weekend nights at the end of June. $420 plus tax per night.
Room and staff were pleasant. Mold and missing tiles in bathroom. Curtains would not close all the way. Light bulbs burned out on desk lamp. Stairwells closed due to work. Nothing to soften the blow of almost $1,000 for two nights. No newspaper and, of course, no coffee.
It was nice but you could spend less at a Ritz or Fairmont and get much more.

Dear Pamalani,

While we are happy to hear that the room and staff were pleasant, we are sorry there were other aspects of your stay that you were not happy with. In the future, please let the front desk know if you are disappointed with any part of your room, they would be more than happy to either fix any issues or, if there are other rooms available, they can move you to a room that better fits your needs. Though we are disappointed you did not fully enjoy your stay we appreciate your feedback as we read all of these reviews to better our guests’ experience.

Sincerely,

Paul Stracey

The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautiful with many amenities. The room was very comfortable. We were upgraded to a premier room when the front desk staff member learned it was our first time in Charleston. The spa treatment was terrific and the concierge very helpful. The pool area was also great with a separate kiddie pool.

We had a couple of minor issues we reported upon checking out. My only complaint would be the difficulty in getting assistance from the front desk or the concierge over the phone. The emphasis on personal service meant we were placed on hold when we called for information leaving me to go to the front desk or concierge for assistance.

Room Tip: Higher rooms will have better view of downtown Charleston. Ask for room that does not face the park...

We checked into a subpar hotel when we first arrived in Charleston. I was desperate to upgrade our vacation asap. I called the Belmond on a Sunday morning and they confirmed a Jr. Suite for the following day.

When we arrived for check in it was clear there was a problem with our room. The front desk manager sent us to the bar for a drink and appetizers while she sorted it all out. We knew we were in good hands. Within minutes she let us know the suite wasn't available but we could have connecting rooms at no extra charge, in fact she comped the extra room. Wow, not what we were expecting.

We felt pampered and taken care of the entire trip. The hotel is beautiful. Our room was huge. There was some construction going on on our floor (spa floor) but I would imagine it's all done by now. The location is perfect for walking the city. Breakfast was expensive, but it felt like a treat the one day we ate there.

I would definitely go back and highly recommend it.

When this hotel becomes our only "go to" place in the city, that says something of the outstanding, service that Charleston Place consistantly provides. We recently had a 200+ person meeting in June and the comments to me from our attendees were nothing but fantastic. The hotel is impressive with it's grand double staircase, marble floors and staff that makes you feel like royalty, it's no surprise that our company will only go to Charleston if Charleston Place is available.

The food is delicious and beautifully presented, the staff friendly and helpful, the location is perfect!! We hade some special requests for our meeting and Charleston Place accomodated every single one with a smile and showed excitement to be part of our event.

I would totally recommend this place for either a fun weekend to relax or a large corporate event.

This was the easiest review I ever had to write!

My wife and children (ages 3 and 5) stayed here for a night on our way to Hilton Head. It was very convenient to Charleston International Airport and relatively easy to find. We paid for an newly renovated room, but were upgraded to the club level. Drinks and snacks were available at all hours of the day (continental breakfast, light snacks mid-day, and desserts at night).
The room was rather large and comfortable. The central location made it easily accessible for dinner, carriage rides, and shopping. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
