How it Ranks: Planters Inn ranks #5 out of 234 Charleston Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: Sitting smack-dab in the heart of downtown, this beautiful hotel claims to be the "heart and soul of Historic Charleston." And guests agree, citing the homey atmosphere and Southern charm as major reasons to stay here. Decked out in beautifully carved furniture accented by rich neutrals and cozy curtains, Planters Inn exudes a colonial aura, but it also embraces modern standards of luxury. The hotel offers nightly turndown service (with fine chocolates and a weather card to help plan your next-day activities) and spacious Italian marble baths. And you can enjoy some true Lowcountry cooking at the on-site Peninsula Grill. Because Planter's Inn is a Relais & Châteaux outpost, Club 5C members can earn or redeem complimentary perks here.
