Welcome to Planters Inn
The Grand Dame of Inns in Charleston, SC
The intimate 64-room Planters Inn is nestled in the very heart of Charleston’s picturesque Historic District, one of America’s largest and best preserved architectural wonders, and overlooks the Charleston City Market. Planters Inn is housed in an meticulously restored and exquisitely furnished 1844 building that Travel + Leisure describes as "akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion."
Travelers from around the globe gravitate to Charleston to tour confection-colored homes, taste celebrated Southern cuisine, and soak up a sense of authentic history. Planters Inn is perfectly situated for strolling through tree-lined residential neighborhoods, shopping on King Street, meeting sweetgrass basket weavers at the Charleston City Market, watching a play at the Dock Street Theatre, touring antebellum house museums, sailing on the harbor, and much, much more.
Planters Inn has earned accolades from Bon Appetit, Conde Nast Traveler, Esquire, Food & Wine, Martha Stewart Living, and Travel + Leisure, as well as many other esteemed editors and travel publications:
“Originally built in 1844 as a dry goods store, Planters Inn offers high-ceilinged rooms with mahogany beds modeled after historical designs. Don’t miss the decadent coconut cake served at the hotel’s Peninsula Grill restaurant.” – AFAR
“Experience ‘Southern hospitality at its best’... built in 1844 and situated ‘within walking distance of everything in Charleston.’ Guest rooms are ‘spacious and elegantly appointed’ and follow a traditional Southern design scheme with high ceilings, hickory furnishings, Audubon prints, and four poster beds.” — Conde Nast Traveler
“It’s said that in the late 18th century, nine of America’s wealthiest men lived in the Charleston area. This Southern city is no longer one of America’s riches, but it may well be the most seductive… Check in at an inn with some character… Planters Inn is one of the plusher options, with graceful, traditionally furnished rooms and a notoriously good 12-layer coconut cake.” —The Wall Street Journal
“Just across the street from Charleston’s historic market buildings, in a converted 1844 dry-goods storehouse, Planters Inn feels intimately connected to the past and the present. The 64-room hotel, with its cozy lobby, shaded courtyard, and beloved restaurant, The Peninsula Grill, has a residential style and décor that evoke Charleston’s colonial past without overdoing it.” —Departures
“Planters Inn: Classically elegant rooms in the historic district.” —Travel + Leisure
“The Peninsula Grill in the Planters Inn, popular for steak and lobsters, is deservedly famous for its scrumptious coconut cake, said to be a Charleston specialty.” —Vogue
