Belmond Charleston Place

205 Meeting St., Charleston, South Carolina, 29401, United States

Even casual passersby enjoy gazing up at the immense handblown Murano glass chandelier in the hotel's open lobby, clicking across the Italian marble floors, and browsing the gallery of upscale shops that completes the ground-floor offerings of this hotel. Should you need more enticements, there are also a deluxe day spa, a fitness room, and an inviting indoor salt- and mineral-water pool with a retractable roof and illuminated skylight for night swimming, along with three fantastic restaurants. Rooms are furnished with period reproductions. The service is impeccable, particularly on the Club Level, where you receive a breakfast spread, afternoon tea, and cocktails and pastries in the evening. Even if you aren't staying here, stop by for cocktails and tapas at the equestrian-theme Thoroughbred Club.
