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?
