Holding court in the very heart of Charleston's famed Historic District, the 64-room Planters Inn is the city’s iconic grande dame hotel. Uniformed doormen welcome every arrival, ushering guests inside the gloriously restored circa 1844 building to a sanctuary of elegant style and genteel service. Voted #1 Best U.S. Boutique Hotel by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine, Planters Inn is a world of civility, sumptuous cuisine, and cultural pursuits. Soaring ten-foot ceilings, a stunning collection of antiques and Baker Historic Charleston décor including a sumptuous four poster bed in every guest room, dozens of working fireplaces, hushed tones of buttercream and Lowcountry greens, Audubon prints, sweetgrass baskets, and raw silk accents create a luxurious ambiance described by Travel + Leisure as "akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion." Here, the hospitality is friendly and genuine, while the service is polished and discreet. There’s also more to Planters Inn than meets the eye: A hidden courtyard illuminated by flickering carriage lanterns provides a beguiling entry to the AAA Four Diamond Award-winning Peninsula Grill, Charleston’s foremost dining experience. Planters Inn and Peninsula Grill are longstanding members of Relais & Châteaux, the exclusive collection of luxury boutique hotels and gourmet restaurants located in the world’s most romantic, most cultured, and most memorable destinations.
