Why You’ll Love It: The intimate 64-room Planters Inn luxury boutique hotel has the best downtown location in the very heart of Charleston’s picturesque Historic District. We overlook the historic Charleston City Market with the best cultural attractions, shopping, dining, and sightseeing landmarks surrounding our hotel.
We begin each day with complimentary coffee service in the parlor. Mid-morning, a refreshing blend of orange and mango tea replaces the coffee. A bowl of fresh apples also appears. Please take one with you while you explore the city.
