“Planters Inn on North Market Street in Charleston is an amazing and beautiful hotel. Everything here is first class and goes above and beyond to provide a memorable experience. The staff here is excellent and makes sure that everything is taken care of and that everyone has what they need. I really like the location overlooking the Charleston Market and everything on the Peninsula is within easy walking distance. My expectations were exceeded in just about every way here with a few pleasant surprises included. The Planters Inn is everything that a hotel should be. This is one of my favorite hotels in Charleston, and I look forward to visiting here in the future, and I am confident that it will be a good stay.”

“We stayed in the Governor's Suite at the beautiful Planters Inn. The staff at the Planters Inn was warm, gracious and friendly. The hotel is ideally located in historic Charleston and it was such a treat to stay in this elegant, finely appointment suite. We had a romantic dinner at Peninsula Grill. Truly one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. The service was impeccable, the food incredible and we can't want to go back again.”

2019 Vacation to Historic Charlestown, South Carolina
“Great location and very friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay here. The Peninsula restaurant has great food and the 12 layer coconut cake is to die for. The sitting room in the front lobby makes you feel like you live there.”

True Southern Hospitality
“This was one of the best hotel experiences I have had in my life. My mother worked for the Leading Hotels of the World for the better part of my life, so high-end hotels are very normal. The service and staff at this hotel is the best I have ever experienced! The staff were extremely accommodating, helpful, and a true pleasure to deal with. We brought our 3-year-old and the hotel staff honestly could not have been better to help with our needs with having him there. It is located within walking distance of the anything you will want to see in downtown Charleston. Stay here and don't forget to eat at the Peninsula Grill!!!”

Peaceful Tranquility in Historical Charleston, SC
“We spent 4 glorious nights at the Planters Inn that included a trip to Fort Sumter, Drayton Hall and various historical homes and sites in and around the area. Our 2 room suite was located on a the 3rd floor overlooking the courtyard, very, very quiet. Our king bed was plush and comfortable too with plenty of pillows to choose. The bathroom was huge and had the greatest shower I have experienced. The two large closets provided enough room for our stay and then some. More than enough hangers and very comfortable robes too. The sitting area had a nice couch and chair to either watch one of two TVs or plan the next day’s excursions. Continental Breakfast was included each morning in the Peninsula Grill or you could order off the menu. Very nice selection of local favorites and the Continental was ample to say the least. Parking was by valet and you had 24-hour access. There were afternoon refreshments served in the parlor along with local benne wafers and each evening there were sweets and coffee too. We highly recommend staying at the Planters Inn.”

You Won't Be Disappointed!
“We went for a quick weekend to Charleston and stayed at the Planters Inn. The staff, room, service, food, everything... was AMAZING. We had a gorgeous room with a nice balcony and were able to get a lovely dinner served in our room. We will definitely be back! Everything down to the smallest detail was handled by the staff. A+++!”

A True Gem
“Found this charming hotel while searching for a place to stay. Was only available for our first night, but so glad we got to experience it. We know where we will be staying when we come back. Staff could not be friendlier, and a huge bonus was access to a first rate local gym a few blocks away. Location is perfect for exploring everything C-town has to offer.”
- David C | TripAdvisor Review July 2019
A Must Stay!
“Nothing short of fabulous. Perfectly located in the heart of downtown, we were able to walk everywhere. The outstanding front desk staff provided us with a map and tips on what we should see and do. Our room was ready well before check in, as we arrived on a morning flight. The staff was just lovely, from the front desk to housekeeping. Incredibly clean. Just a beautiful property. We loved sitting outside at night in the courtyard and sharing coffee outside our room, as there are small tables and rocking benches. You will not be disappointed!”

The Most Elegant Inn and Superb Staff Ever!
“Planters Inn is by far the most classy upscale Inn around. Beautiful rooms and a gorgeous courtyard. Every staff member is so nice and friendly. Impeccable service! A piece of heaven on earth! This will be our place to stay when we come back to Charleston.”
- HealthyWomenMove | TripAdvisor Review July 2019
“This is one the nicest. Most pleasant hotel experiences of my life. I would stay there any day of the week. The raw oysters from the bar were some of the best of my life. Nightly turn down service (w macaroons!) is one of the many reasons this place is amazing!!!”

Beautiful Hotel, Perfect Location
“We have stayed in many hotels in the historic area of Charleston over the past 20 years. The Planters Inn is hands down our favorite. The rooms are lovely and well-appointed. Experienced, friendly and capable staff. The location is perfect for experiencing Charleston. Despite its central location, it’s very quiet with lovely secluded courtyard. Dinner at the Peninsula Grill is a must.”

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.”
- KnoxvilleFord | TripAdvisor Review April 2019
Great All The Way!
"Fantastic stay with great personable staff that was ready to help at every step of the way. The location of the hotel is unbeatable - you can walk everywhere. The restaurant was fantastic, ended up canceling another reservation to dine a second night there."
- Phil | TripAdvisor Review April 2019
"We just got back from a wonderful trip to Charleston SC. We stayed at the Planters Inn. AWESOME location and wonderful property. Marcus along with the entire staff took great Care of all of us (6 including rented bikes). We will be back!"
- Melissa L | TripAdvisor Review April 2019
“Exceptionally courteous staff and wonderful accommodations. The small touches (such as turndown service with macaroons) and the clean, well furnished rooms made for a great stay. Not to mention a great location.”
- Clay Samford | Google Review April 2019
“Planters Inn is where you want to stay in Charleston! The rooms are beautiful, the garden path to get to your room is so lush and pretty. The staff is southern hospitality at its best... Marcus greets you like you have known him forever. His smile starts your day off right. Hard not to want to eat in the Pennisula Grill every night and if you don’t... going for the coconut cake every night is hard to resist!! My only complaint is you can’t live at the Planters Inn. Can’t wait to return. Heaven on earth!!”
