Lovely stay, everything was perfect. Although the Inn was busy, it runs in a smooth and unhurried manner--with perfect service. The staff is wonderful, friendly and warm---and so responsive to any request. Best sleep in years and woke up to very very early coffee enjoyed in the parlor with a view to early morning Charleston waking for the day. An oasis. Definitely recommend and hope to go back soon.

This was our first stay in Charleston, and Planters Inn was the perfect place to stay for our 20th anniversary trip. The Inn is right in the middle of the city, so it was easy to stop in during the day to freshen up or take a break from the heat. The rooms are divine -- gorgeous furnishings, sleek and updated bathroom, and a really luxurious bed. We enjoyed the sweet tea and lemonade in the afternoons, and the turndown service at night. Highly recommend Planters Inn for your visit!

Every detail is attended to, from the towels in the vestibule to wipe the rain off, the umbrellas, the macarons on the pillow at night--all in all a luxurious experience. The rooms are so sound-proof that we wondered if anyone else was staying there.

Located on Market St in the middle of everything. Old style hotel. Rooms are nice. Service is good. A little expensive for what you get but you are paying for the location. A short walk to almost everywhere you want to go.

This Inn is incredible to say the least. The location is perfect, you're literally across the street from the market, and only a block away from the famous shops on King Street. The inn itself was beautiful, the room was exceptionally clean, I have zero complaints what so ever. I will say I have been to Charleston twice now, and I will be staying here from now on. The Peninsula Grill located within the Inn has amazing food, I do recommend making a reservation a few days in advance if you can, bu... Read more

Absolutely stellar accommodations. The location is about as central as you can get, very close to restaurants and the market. Staff is incredible and the room was very well appointed. Additionally the restaurant and bar were top notch. While it took a bit of a flight from Toronto to get there, it was well worth the time and effort. We plan to return soon and spend more time than a weekend.

We went for a long weekend recently, and our stay was fantastic. The room was beautiful, and spacious, plus the service was top notch. It had a relaxed feel to it although it is a swanky property, which is always a good sign showing they don't take themselves too seriously, which adds to patrons being able to have a good relaxing time on their vacations. The macarons(French Macaroons) during turn down every evening were great, plus the treats in their lobby at various hours of the day (varies fr... Read more

Great location, service, and knowledgable staff. The coconut cake at the Peninsula Grill was out of this world. The little bear on the bed was a cute touch. He was put on the bed everyday. The room had a very large sweet grass basket. That was a nice touch.

I would return to this hotel when I revisit Charleston. The location was excellent. We walked to restaurants, house tours, walking tours, etc. easily from the hotel. The market was right across the street. The pedi-cabs were right down the block. We took these often to sites that would have taken over 20 min to walk to when we were in a rush. We did not rent a car and felt it was a good choice. The only time we wanted a car ride was to Magnolia Plantation, which was easily arranged by the... Read more

The room was clean and comfortable, with a historic feel. Best of all was the location. We were able to walk everywhere, and the hotel is so close that it is easy to walk back for a break before going back out. Head west for shopping, drop the bags off in the room, and head east for dinner. The extra location is well worth the price when you factor in how much better it will make your vacation!

We used Priceline to find a four or five star hotel. We're glad it was Planters Inn. The hotel is in a great location for restaurants and walks through historic blocks of homes. The staff here are attentive yet not intrusive. They provide an exceptional welcome.

We were with our best friends traveling from California and both celebrating our 30rh wedding anniversaries. The Planters Inn was the perfect spot for our stay in Charleston. The location is perfectly located in the historical district but with all of the amenities expected in a 4-5 star boutique hotel. We went to Savannah after Charleston and stayed in a very nice B &B. But our stay at the Planters Inn was much more luxurious. Highly recommend it as it is within walking distance of everything i... Read more

We would stay here again if back in Charleston. It is old, but has charm and a beautiful patio with restaurant and bar. The location is very good and convenient next to the market and many good restaurants (i.e., Husk). The only comment we have for improvement is with the front desk. We advised the front desk we had our car parked for valet service. When we came back down half an hour later, the car was still on with the keys in the ignition and not moved by the valet. Surely this does not... Read more

Wonderful experience here, small, charming hotel, suites are large, bath shower large with great water pressure, small, single sink counter. Great bar, one of the prettiest I've seen. Restaurant, The Peninsula Grill superb. Parking expensive, doorman service poor, but otherwise great hotel. Street noise might be problem for some despite the shutters, ask for room off main street.

Overall, our stay was fine. The location of the hotel is great and the room was nice. I liked the historic charm. However, I would expect the staff to be friendlier. They were rude, not welcoming and just made me feel uncomfortable. Not the way I want to feel given the cost of the room. Next time I will stay at the Belmond Charleston Place.

OK, maybe the valet parking is a bit expensive. Nevertheless, we would certainly come back. But, we'd skip the restaurant downstairs.

When I book a room at a Relais and Chateau hotel, I have certain expectations: the room will be spacious, have a lovely view, and go above and beyond with amenities. Our $575 room is small by any standard, and it's view is of a communal courtyard, so unless you want to be open to passerby, the curtains must be closed. There are two small chairs flanking said window. The bathroom has a deep soaking tub, but with a permanent grey stain which looks like grime, but at least isn't. The tub doesn'... Read more

If we get a chance to go back to Charlston we will stay there again.
