THE
GRANDE DAME of HOTELS IN CHARLESTON

HISTORIC CHARLESTON

175 YEARS of
SOUTHERN CHARM

When Planters Inn was built in 1844, it secured the very best location of all Charleston hotels. Today, the beloved Relais and Chateaux luxury hotel enjoys an unrivaled position overlooking the Charleston City Market in the heart of the downtown Historic District.

Experience gracious hospitality and refined style on a grand scale in the historic hotel’s spacious accommodations. Every Planters Inn room is a serene haven of luxury with an exquisitely-carved four-poster king bed and sumptuous hemstitched linens.

The 175-year-old Grande Dame Charleston Hotel also holds a secret: A hidden garden courtyard illuminated by flickering lanterns and candles provides a splendid sense of arrival to Peninsula Grill, one of the most romantic dining experiences in Historic Charleston and home of the famous 12-layer Ultimate Coconut Cake.
