This is our hotel in Charleston. Since we are still thick in our Charleston, South Carolina vacation review, it is only right that we discuss where we stayed while in the great city. The Planters Inn, located in Charleston’s historic district, is a gracious Charleston hotel known for elegance and Southern hospitality. Built in 1844, this beautifully restored inn is situated on Charleston’s open-air City Market, the King Street Antiques District is only a block away and Fort Sumter tours are within a half-mile.
The inn has beautiful four poster beds in each room. Unlike other hotels, there is no real lobby area in the hotel. Instead, there is a small desk that is off of a parlor area that is decorated with period pieces that make you feel like you are back in older times. Here are some pictures of the hotel that illustrate the charm of the Planters Inn.
Besides its beauty, it was nice staying at the Planters Inn because it was close to everything that we did while in Charleston. Its proximity to tourist attractions, great restaurants and shopping can’t be beat. After walking outside in the heat, it wa great to come back to the parlor or your room and just relax. Even though the inn is in the heart of the city, it was always very quiet and accomodating. We were glad we stayed at the Planters Inn. What great things, like the Planters Inn, have you discovered over the Summer?
Nice. I haven’t ever been to Charleston but if I ever go I’ll stay at The Planter’s Inn.
Last summer my wife and I went to Oak Alley in Louisiana. I was really beautiful and has a rich tradition.
Hi. Welcome to Acorns On Glen. We had a great time in Charleston (you can tell, I’ve written about it all week). The Planters Inn was very nice. I would also like to go to Louisiana at some point. I have never been there. Everyone says it is gorgeous. Come back and visit us soon.
I love places that aren’t just your average chain hotel. Even when we’re bargain traveling, we try to pick one nice place to stay for the trip. This looks like the definition of Southern hospitality.
Hi Katherine. I agree, the Planters Inn made me feel Southern and I am far from it. I highly recommend this joint. Hope all is well. Come back and visit soon.
