What a delight! The staff was wonderful, the location perfect for exploring the city, the room everything you could need and spacious. The courtyard was a private little oasis and the dinning room in the hotel was an amazing night out. Megan at the front desk even said hello to me outside of the hotel on her day off when she bumped into me in a cafe. Mark the sommelier, Mark the Chef in the Peninsular Grille (along with Daniel my server) made my night with not only my amazing meal but their kindness in helping secure a hard to get reservation. I never write reviews...Planter's Inn was such the complete package that was worth the time to do so. Stay in this wonderful spot and you will not be disappointed!

Together Time for Two

Pros: Be sure to use the free buses that run through the main areas. Bus 211 stops right outside the hotel - perfect for a getting to destination quickly.
Cons: I would have liked a larger bar and lobby area, and some outdoor heaters so we could enjoy the beautiful courtyard - a missed opportunity.
Location: Basically walking distance to all major points of interest. We ate at Henry's - casual two blocks away, also High Cotton - on the high side
Very nice hotel. Unique small hotel in a lovely southern city, top class. Located in the heart of the city, just across from the market place. Small lobby with wood fireplace - it was very cold weather and the fire was most welcoming. Gracious reception room with couches and refreshments. If you want to eat dinner at the hotel restaurant, highly recommend reservations in advance. Bedroom was well furnished with a four-poster king bed, two armchairs and desk. Tall ceilings, self-control thermostat, no coffee making equipment in room. Very nice bathroom and tiled shower.

Historic hotel in Charleston

Pros: See above.
Cons: See above.
The hotel was lovely and well situated. The staff were very helpful. My one complaint is that my room had no bathtub, only a shower. When I pay over $400/night, or even less, I expect and want to have a bathtub.
