Overview

Gourmet dining, four-poster beds and the staff's Southern charm were big hits
The hotel does not have a fitness center or pool

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 an Old World aura, but it also embraces modern standards of luxury. The hotel offers nightly turndown service (with macarons and a weather card to help plan your next-day activities) and spacious Italian marble baths. And you can enjoy some true low country 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.

As in many of the city's historic homes, rooms in the 1844 property feel like mini-museums, decorated with antiques and furnished with period reproductions from Baker Furniture Company's Historic Charleston Collection, with large plantation-style four-poster beds, plush linens, high ceilings, and bathrooms done in Italian marble.
