Fodor's Expert Review Belmond Charleston Place

205 Meeting St., Charleston, South Carolina, 29401, USA Fodor's Choice

Guests and casual passersby alike enjoy gazing up at the immense handblown Murano glass chandelier in this 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 landmark hotel with bright, modern rooms. Should you need more enticements, there is also a deluxe day spa, a fitness center, and an inviting indoor salt-and-mineral-water pool with an illuminated skylight for night swimming, along with four fantastic restaurants and bars that include the equestrian-theme Thoroughbred Club, known for their top-shelf whisky selection. The service is impeccable, particularly on the club level, where you receive a breakfast spread, afternoon tea, and evening cocktails and pastries.

  • great on-site restaurants and bars
