“A little slice of heaven…”
"a notoriously good 12-layer coconut cake"

“One of the South’s Grand Desserts”
"If the city could give a key to a cake, they might bestow the honor upon the Ultimate Coconut Cake at the Peninsula Grill."
“The Ultimate Coconut Cake, with loads of buttery frosting and coconut, is so popular that it’s available through mail order.”
“When we finally cut ourselves some slices of the cake from Peninsula Grill, we agreed that it was close to the best we’d ever tasted. The Peninsula Grill is deservedly famous for its scrumptious coconut cake.”

Have You Met Charles T. Bear?
The Tale of a Sweet Bear...
For 25 years, Charles T. Bear has greeted every Planters Inn guest. Do you know the story behind our cute-and-cuddly Ambassador of Hospitality?
Many years ago, the owner of Planters Inn flew cross-country on the red-eye and went straight to back-to-back business meetings without any sleep. When he arrived at his hotel that night, he was tired and frazzled.
“I was dog-tired by the time I checked into the hotel,” he recalls. “I opened the door to my room and saw a teddy bear on my bed. It just lifted my spirits.”
“I went out to get a burger, and when I came back an hour later, my bed had been turned down. Tucked into my bed was the teddy bear, and by now he was wearing a little nightshirt. I got into that bed after having been up for nearly 48 hours and snuggled up next to that teddy bear.”
“The next morning, I woke up and looked at the bear and said, ‘You’re going to be in my hotel.’ It struck me as an utterly charming thing to put in a hotel room to give a tired traveler a lift.”
