Charleston's 10 Most Instagrammable Inns

Molly Ramsey | February 01, 2018

Ah, travel: it bestows on you the power to make all the coworkers you left behind green with envy as they scroll through social media. With Rainbow Row, centuries-old architecture, and a bevy of beaches, Charleston is Instagram gold (just ask the dozens of lifestyle bloggers who call the Holy City home). Also good fodder for posts? Your hotel, should you stay at one of these picture-perfect inns.


Planters Inn

Why it made the list

Views from this oh-so Charleston establishment’s verdant courtyard will rake in the double taps. Rooms in the new suite are especially light, bright, and stylish—and don’t forget to take a snap of the sweet teddy bear that’ll be perched atop your bed.

John Rutledge House Inn

Why it made the list

From your room, you’ll post pics filled with historic charm: think marble mantles and canopied four-poster beds. And outside, you’ll want to pose in front of the inn’s famed façade, which is covered in intricate green wrought ironwork and winding vines.

Wild Dunes Resort

Why it made the list

Lined with pastel-hued townhomes meant to resemble Rainbow Row, the main boardwalk at Wild Dunes is just begging for a photograph. Add in smiling family pics in the oversized Adirondack chair and beach vignettes, and your Instagram page will have never looked so merry.

Inn at Middleton Place

Why it made the list

While the rooms themselves may not be the most picturesque, Middleton Place plantation’s acres and acres worth of landscaped gardens sure are, and you’ll have unlimited access to them during your stay. Keep an eye out for alligators, egrets, and other wildlife; pay a visit to the stables to mingle with friendly sheep and handsome horses.

The Restoration

Why it made the list

Oozing a modern yet distinctly Southern aesthetic, The Restoration’s rooms and common spaces are devastatingly chic. You’ll want to document the charming library (bonus points if the fire’s on), the tucked-away Indigo Serenity Pool, and, of course, the rooftop’s sweeping views of downtown.

Two Meeting Street Inn

Why it made the list

One of few well-preserved Victorian homes in the city, the architecture of this quant bed and breakfast will impress. Be sure to capture the inn’s original Tiffany stained glass windows, its curved piazza, and the ancient oak covered in resurrection ferns out front.

The Dewberry Charleston

Why it made the list

Are you on vacay or did you sneak onto the set of Mad Men? No one will know from your footage of The Dewberry’s simply stunning midcentury-modern design. If you’re staying in a Charleston flat, you simply must show off that soaking tub in your marble-clad bathroom.

The Spectator

Why it made the list

Did breakfast in bed even happen if you didn’t post a pic of it on Instagram? You’ll want to show off the Jazz Age-inspired bar area as well as your suite that’s rife with Art Deco style. You may even want to introduce your followers to your personal butler, who will be there to cater to your every need.

86 Cannon

Why it made the list

You’ll start by taking a boomerang of Gus and Sully, the innkeepers’ too-precious pups that will greet you upon arrival. From there, you’ll want to document your chic room and dreamy bathroom. Common spaces—from the airy café, sitting room, and piazzas to the moody library on the top floor—will be on your shot list, as well.
