Refined Southern Charm | The Planters Inn


The Planters Inn is an acclaimed luxury boutique hotel in Charleston, South Carolina, that combines elegant Southern style with contemporary sophistication in a central location. Winner of Travel + Leisure’s #1 Best U.S. Boutique Hotel Award, The Planters Inn is located in the heart of the Historic District in Charleston and it’s this location that ensures most  guests never use a car during their stay at this iconic retreat.

Upon arrival, guests wander into the Planters Inn Courtyard, a lush oasis of tranquility unique among luxury hotels in Charleston. It is the perfect start to a memorable stay in a timeless landmark hotel, set in the centre of the city.

This is absolutely the place to slow down and unwind. The Planters Inn is within walking distance of Waterfront Park, King Street boutiques, French Quarter art galleries, famous historic mansions, and the city’s best restaurants. As a point of reference, the Charleston City Market is across the street.

When you step inside this sanctuary of hushed elegance and refined Southern style, you can’t help but soak up the atmosphere. This unique boutique hotel is beautiful to behold with high ceilings, silk window dressings, dozens of working fireplaces, and a four-poster bed with luxurious Italian linens in every room.

There’s also more to the Planters Inn than meets the eye: the hidden garden courtyard illuminated by flickering carriage lanterns provides an enchanting, one-of-a-kind arrival to Charleston’s most romantic restaurant: the Peninsula Grill.

Unlike most modern hotels, Planters Inn is an artfully preserved 64-room architectural treasure. In 2017, Planters Inn ushered in a new era of luxury with the debut of 11 of the Charleston Historic District’s largest hotel suites. Today, the iconic hotel is more glamorous than ever.

Planters Inn & Peninsula Grill has enjoyed membership in Relais & Châteaux for more than 20 years and are the sole members located in South Carolina. Established in France in 1954, Relais & Châteaux is an exclusive collection of independently-owned landmark hotels and renowned restaurants located in the world’s most romantic, most cultured, and most memorable destinations. In addition to luxurious accommodations and gourmet cuisine, members must exhibit the 5C Standards: Charm, Cuisine, Character, Calm, and Courtesy.
