LEGACY & LOCATION

175 years of southern hospitality

When Planters Inn was built in 1844, it captured Charleston’s very best location—the corner of Meeting and Market streets. Today, the landmark hotel enjoys an unrivaled position in the absolute heart & soul of Charleston's stunning Historic District, and the best things to do in Charleston are a short stroll away. As a point of reference: Planters Inn overlooks the Charleston City Market, and the King Street shopping district is one block away.
