Planters Inn Review

Part of the Relais & Châteaux group, this boutique property with well-appointed and beautifully maintained rooms is a stately sanctuary amid the bustle of Charleston's Market. Light streams into the front parlor with its velvets and Oriental antiques. Rooms in the main historic building (versus those in the newer Piazza Building, which overlook a tranquil garden courtyard) have more atmosphere and a more residential feel. Service is genteel and unobtrusive but not stuffy, and the hospitality feels genuine. The best rooms have fireplaces and verandas; all have four-poster beds. The "piazza" rooms with whirlpool baths and top-tier suites are suitably over the top in terms of comfort. Packages with breakfast and/or dinner at the amazing on-site Peninsula Grill are a good value.

    Underwhelmed

    I think we must have gotten the 'value' room, because I can't fathom why this place is so highly rated. We booked online via there website for a last minute Sunday evening stay. While the rate was competitive with other nearby hotels, the hotel is just, well....boring. All the rave reviews must be for the more expensive suites. But, there's nothing to do in the hotel. The lobby is basically just an entryway and the 'common room' is just some worn and unattractive old chairs. I don't get it. The location is great, but that's about all the hotel offers....very dissapointing.
