The Grande Dame of Hotels in Charleston

175 years in the Heart of the Historic District

When Planters Inn was built in 1844, it secured the absolute best location of all Charleston hotels. Today, the beloved Relais and Chateaux boutique hotel is widely-known for its prominent address at the corner of Market & Meeting streets in downtown Charleston, South Carolina.

Planters Inn also holds a delicious secret: A hidden garden courtyard illuminated by candles and lanterns serves as the enchanting entrance to Peninsula Grill, one of the South's the most romantic dining experiences. No visit to Historic Charleston is complete without a taste of their famous 12-layer Ultimate Coconut Cake.

Much more than a luxury hotel in Charleston, Planters Inn is a cultural experience that combines 19th-Century splendor with modern comforts. Sleep in an exquisite four-poster king bed. Wake up in the heart of the Charleston Historic District. Walk everywhere. Welcome to Planters Inn!
