The location is central to everything. Considering how close it is to the action, our room was very peaceful and comfy. Highly recommend.

It's a lovely hotel, but the front desk service was disappointing. One receptionist claimed that tips for the maid should be left at the front desk... and then the maid said that she never got them. (The other front desk people had no knowledge of this policy, so perhaps this person simply saw an opportunity to pocket some cash?) Another person, in a clear effort to push the breakfast at the attached restaurant, claimed the bagels we were after were never served in Charleston. (Spoiler: they are.) It was just a general nose-in-the-air dishonesty, which was a real shame, because the rest of the stay was great.

I liked everything. Staff was wonderful, courteous and attentive.

A very weak wi-fi signal in our room caused problems. Room was not made up on day 2. Needed more shampoo, washcloths and the bed was still unmade after an entire day touring. Not the kind of service one would expect from the Relais and Chateau network. Day 3, we asked for the room to be made up and it was. I’ve stayed in plenty of high-end hotels, and I’ve never before had to ask for the room to be tidied (we did not leave a mess, but still....)

The staff was exceptional and made our 30th anniversary extremely memorable and supremely comfortable! We had dinner at Peninsula Grill and it was fantastic! The Meyer ribeye was probably one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten! The coconut cake lives up to the hype too! Highly recommended hotel!

Everything from check in to check out was easy and quick. The room was spacious and beautiful. The bed was really comfortable and everything looked new. It was very elegant.

Perfect location for a Charleston vacation! Right in the middle of everything! Love the old feel of this beautiful hotel. A lovely, historic, beautifully decorated hotel. Will definitely book again.

Easy check-in & excellent responsiveness to our needs. Valet parking fast & friendly as we needed our car off & on during our stay. Good sized rooms & well kept. Peninsula Grill always a joy to experience, but FIG, just up one block, was our winner for an overall stunning culinary experience. Will definitely be back to the Plantar's Inn......thanks!

Friendly staff, near the historic district, amazing rooms and close to multiple food, drink and shopping areas. Staying at this hotel made our trip even more wonderful.

This was one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed at for a girls weekend. The staff was extremely friendly.

Went for our 20th anniversary--first trip to Charleston. Loved the hotel which was right across the street from the market

Excellent staff with old world charm. I love this place

Staff extremely accommodating. I was leaving in early morning. Staff went out of way to provide a take away breakfast.

Thank you for taking the time to share, we greatly appreciate your feedback. First and foremost, I am deeply sorry to hear you were unhappy with your experience with the front desk. Travel can, and should, be memorable for all the right reasons. We are all saddened by your disappointment and would truly appreciate the opportunity to win back your confidence in us. Life is short and should be lived to the fullest. A less than stellar experience needs to be turned on its head and made into something far better. We would be more than happy to assist in finding the best accommodation for you next time! It is our goal to ensure that each and every guest has a relaxing, enjoyable stay and it is an honor to provide you with the Southern Hospitality you deserve. We hope to welcome you back in the very near future!

Dear Guest, Please pardon our housekeeping oversight, this is not our standard and we try to go into each room at least twice during the day to ensure you have anything you need and turn down your bed. We will have our IT department look into the wi-fi signal to correct this issue immediately and appreciate your feedback in order to correct our shortcomings. Best regards,
