Overview

Top-notch service and numerous on-site amenities
Expensive on-site parking fees

The City Market sits right outside the lobby and attractions like the Old Slave Mart Museum, numerous art galleries and the Nathaniel Russell House are just a stone's throw away. So in other words, Charleston Place makes a great home base for sightseers visiting this city for the first time. Plus, the hotel's decor  complete with exquisitely carved furniture, sweeping staircases and bright, cheerful colors  add a taste of Southern comfort. Inside the rooms, guests will find minifridges, marble bathrooms with walk-in showers or soaker tubs, and Belmond Charleston Place toiletries. Along with the hotel's furnishings, Charleston Place also boasts a spa and an infinity-edge, saltwater indoor/outdoor swimming pool (the glass roof retracts). But what keeps customers coming back is the excellent quality of Charleston Place's customer service.

Though it's especially magical when it's lit up at Christmastime, this hotel is pretty dazzling all year round. Among the many 'wow' features are the lobby's massive chandelier and swirling staircases, and its rooftop pools.
