Belmond Charleston Place

Recent guest reviews

We had a nice stay except for the REALLY loud guests next to us on our last night's stay, a Sunday night. I believe they were watching a game and having a party. Normally, don't complain about this type of stuff, but this noise and partying were really,really loud and went into the very late/early hours of Sunday. Had to call the staff -twice- to ask them to intervene. This went on for some time. Unfortunately, lost a decent night's rest and considering that the hotel is pricey, expected a bit more from the staff. There was no apology the next day and I think they gave up on the situation. Understand that they need to accommodate everyone as best as possible and everyone has their right to have fun, but this was unreasonably loud and a prolonged disturbance. Will think twice about returning. Hotel should consider insulation for the walls or have some sort of noise policy for after midnight.

We are repeat visitors to Charleston and have stayed at Charleston Place several times. Each stay has been very satisfying in terms of comfort, decor, amenities, and staff friendliness.

If you are in Charleston & looking for a great place to stay, I highly recommend The Belmond Charleston Place. It blew my mind how nice it was.

My wife, daughter and I vacationed in Charleston for five (5) nights. We very much enjoyed our stay at the BCP. At check-in we were looking to change the room type to a room which was not ready. They offered a free upgrade to a suite, which was greatly appreciated.

This hotel is a block from the market and right off King Street where there are a lot of restaurants and high-end shops. Great location! Never waited more than 3 or 4 minutes for Uber. The staff was very kind. Not sure why, but they upgraded us to club level at check-in which was amazing. Free food and drinks the entire stay on the 8th floor. I would stay again in s heartbeat.

Sandwiched between great restaurants and great shopping. A convenient walk to almost everything. Great shopping right in the hotel--loved arriving to White House Black Market'a 50% off sale!

I was extremely comfortable and satisfied with the hotel and staff.

Perfect location. Beautiful hotel with plenty of amenities. Will definitely stay again!

Hotel was in the center of everything. It was walking distance to what we wanted to do. Beautifully decorated for Christmas.

This hotel is beautiful and clean. The amenities are great and we loved the rainfall shower. Only complaint is that most of the rooms are adjoined so it can be noisy if you have loud neighbors. Otherwise it's a fabulous hotel and within walking distance of all the restaurants, shopping and museums in downtown Charleston.

Our room was beautiful. Very clean and comfortable. We loved it.

Great location, wonderful staff, room was spacious and comfortable, hotel restaurants were top notch, roof top pool was fantastic.

Walking distances to many sights as well as restaurants. Clean, spacious room. Indoor pool was great as well. Parking in the nearby garage wasn't the best as the spaces are narrow. If we are ever visiting Charleston again, this will be the place to stay.

We booked here to be close to most all attractions so we didn't have to rent a car for the whole week. We were generously upgraded to the Club Level where we had free breakfast, afternoon cocktails/hordeorves, and evening dessert/nightcaps. Food was excellent and great variety daily. Entire staff, bellmen, concierge, desk clerks, cleaning staff, bartenders all went above and beyond to make our stay special. Hotel is very elegant. Room was large,lovely and quiet. Charleston Grill was fabulous food and lobby bar was always hopping with nightly music. We LOVED this hotel!

Staff made me feel like I was at home. Elegant classic southern hotel. Made us feel like we were southern aristocrats.

This is a lovely hotel that is very well located. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Concierge was extremely helpful in advising about Charleston sights.

We loved Belmond Charleston Place! They left a bottle of champagne and a birthday cake for us- So sweet and thoughtful. Beautiful hotel and awesome location. We cant wait to go back!

Only disappointment was Charleston Grill-food so so and no dress code whatsoever so we got to share the tattoos on man at next table, not very appetizing and when I mentioned to restaurant manager, his attitude was that if they had a dress code, they would not have any business, so while we will stay at Hotel again, will not go to the grill.!

Great location. Fine lobby with upscale bar. Gourmet formal dining room. Nice indoor swimming pool and hot tub. Great staff that responded to our every request. Spacious, well appointed room. Good value but probably too expensive for most people's budget, unless you're there on an expense account or a tax deductible meeting.

The staff at the hotel was excellent! Our concierges Robert and Richard handled everything we could ask for. We wanted to change dinner reservations and they handled it seamlessly. Great service by the entire staff. Chilled champagne waiting in our room with chocolate strawberries was a great touch. There are only two things that were disappointing. I had specifically asked if there was any construction going on prior to booking. I was assured there was not. Unfortunately the outdoor area of the pool was closed two days into our stay. As this was the only outside area it was a bit inconvenient. This also prevented any outside area to smoke a good cigar. I really would have liked to enjoy that after dining in their exceptional restaurants. It is my understanding that the construction is on an outside rooftop bar area so maybe those issues are already being addressed. The wifi went down one night. Perhaps not such a huge loss to be disconnected on your honeymoon! Super location! Great cocktails at the thoroughbred lounge! Overall a great experience!

I am so glad you enjoyed the majority of your stay, but I hate that your last night was disrupted by loud guests. We do our best to mitigate noise disturbances, and respond to all guest noise complaints as quickly as possible. It is our general policy that after the third attempt to quiet the offending party, they be asked to leave the hotel. I am so sorry this did not happen in your situation; and I have spoken with our Security Team to reiterate the importance of dealing with noise issues in a timely and professional manner. Please accept our apologies for the frustration and interrupted rest. I can assure you this is not the standard for our hotel. We look forward to welcoming you again!
