This is a first class hotel. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The hotel is centrally located for sightseeing and walking tours. It was one of the best hotels that I have been in, if not, the best.

This is a boutique hotel in the middle of historic Charleston. The service is excellent, the cuisine is superb and the atmosphere that of a club. One gets the true sense of Southern hospitality. I was attending a black tie wedding and the general manager helped me with tie.

Is there a swimming pool?
Thank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, we do not. That said we are in the heart of the Historic District and within walking distance, to many of the highlights, Charleston has to offer. I hope we have an opportunity to welcome you to Charleston and Planters Inn.

Hello, Is there parking available ( self park & Valet ) and what is the fee?
There is valet parking for about $30/day. Nothing is free since space is at such a premium. Maybe find a safe lot away from the center of town and Uber over if you are staying multiple days? Good luck.

"Our room was facing the street where you can see the marketplace across the street! Love it love it love it!"
"Penthouse King room is amazing. Plenty of room and the balcony was so worth it."
"We enjoyed our room with a fireplace as nights got down into the 30's."
"We stayed in a suite on the second floor on the street side of property, not a busy time of year, thus we heard minimum street noise."
"Our room was overlooking the intersection of downtown, not noisy but a bit bright at night, just needed to close the blinds"
US$304 - US$794 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
