GRANDE DAME of HOTELS IN CHARLESTON

LEGACY & LOCATION

175 YEARS of
SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY

When Planters Inn was built in 1844, it captured the very best location in downtown Charleston, South Carolina—the corner of Market and Meeting streets. Today, the iconic hotel enjoys an unrivaled position in the absolute center of the Historic District.

Experience gracious hospitality and refined style on a grand scale in the historic hotel’s spacious accommodations. Every 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 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 the South and home of the famous 12-layer Ultimate Coconut Cake.
