The Grande Dame of Hotels in Charleston

When Planters Inn was built in 1844, it secured the best location possible of all Charleston hotels. Today, the acclaimed Relais & Châteaux hotel famously presides over Market & Meeting streets — the true heart of the Historic District.

"Stepping off bustling North Market Street into the Planters Inn is like stumbling upon your own secret oasis. The immediate calm of the elegant lobby is merely a precursor to the tranquility of the garden courtyard, where, enchanted amid the lush greenery, you are likely to forget you have a hotel suite waiting to be explored."

EXQUISITE DINING

Enchanted Charleston Evenings

There’s also more to Planters Inn than meets the eye: A garden path illuminated by flickering lanterns provides the resplendent, one-of-a-kind arrival to the renowned Peninsula Grill, the most romantic restaurant in Charleston.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★



"Most Charlestonians agree Peninsula Grill epitomizes fine dining. The velvet-lined walls and sundry antebellum portraits set a cultivated mood without feeling stuffy, and the food is sublime. A petite but elegant bar is known for its seasonal Meyer Lemon Bourbon, Planters Punch, rare vintages of champagne, and broiled oysters."
— Conde Nast Traveler magazine


"The Peninsula Grill at Planters Inn is a Holy City institution that matches faultless, polished service with a menu packed with refined continental favorites, including baked Oysters Rockefeller, sizzling steaks, and last but not least, the legendary ultimate coconut cake. (Imagine 12 alternating layers of moist, buttery cake and fluffy coconut filling–all of which is finished with a thick layer of cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut flakes.) "
— Forbes magazine
