THE GRANDE DAME of HOTELS IN CHARLESTON

CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA

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 in the true heart of the downtown Historic District.

Planters Inn has earned Four Diamonds every year since 1995 and remains the sole Relais & Châteaux luxury hotel located in South Carolina.

The Grande Dame Charleston Hotel also holds a delicious secret: A hidden garden courtyard illuminated by candles and lanterns serves as the enchanting arrival to Peninsula Grill, one of the most romantic dining experiences in Historic Charleston and home of the famous 12-layer Ultimate Coconut Cake.

Your incredible Charleston getaway begins at Planters Inn.

A Home Away From Home
“Warm, welcoming, friendly atmosphere with helpful, lovely staff. Perfect, central location. A highlight of the hotel was the lounge room which offered drinks (tea, coffee, and lemonade) and snacks (fruit, cookies, delicious cheese crisps) all day. Also enjoyed the outside area with chairs and tables to sit in the evening or late afternoon.”

Best Place to Stay
“This hotel is gorgeous, and the staff is wonderful. We will be staying this weekend, and I will only stay here when visiting Charleston. Lots of news swanky hotel in Charleston now but if you want pure class and the old south, this is it. Can’t beat the courtyard for late night drinks and morning breakfast.”
