A SENSE OF PLACE

Thanks to Planters Inn's premier location in the very heart of the Historic District, most guests never use a car during their stay at our Charleston hotel.

Upon arrival, guests wander into the Planters Inn Courtyard, a lush oasis of tranquility unique among luxury hotels in Charleston. It is the perfect start to a memorable stay in a timeless landmark hotel, set in the center of the city.

Slow down & unwind. We are within walking distance of Waterfront Park, King Street boutiques, French Quarter art galleries, famous historic mansions, and the city's best restaurants. As a point of reference, the Charleston City Market is across the street.
