The Grande Dame of Hotels in Charleston SC
Welcome to Planters Inn Relais & Chateaux, the leader in luxury Charleston hotels. Unlike many modern hotels, the best hotel in Charleston SC is an artfully preserved architectural treasure located in the very heart of historic downtown.
Planters Inn is a sanctuary of hushed elegance and refined Southern style with soaring ceilings, silk window dressings, dozens of working fireplaces, and beautiful four-poster beds from the Baker Historic Charleston Collection. Planters Inn offers an experience “akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion” according to Travel + Leisure magazine, which named Planters Inn Best U.S. Boutique Hotel in 2014.
There’s more to Planters Inn Relais and Chateaux than meets the eye: A hidden garden courtyard illuminated by flickering carriage lanterns provides a romantic sense of arrival to Peninsula Grill, the best restaurant in Charleston SC.
And the city's top shopping and cultural landmarks—Rainbow Row, Waterfront Park, The Battery, South of Broad mansions, and the Charleston City Market—are mere steps away.
