Old World charmer in the heart of Charleston, with a popular restaurant and wedding-favorite outdoor courtyard
Antebellum elegance. Yawning fireplaces, four-poster beds, oil paintings and Audubon prints on the walls amount to a rich and formal look that’s at the same time cozy and welcoming. The brick building used to be a dry goods store, and its understated awning-covered entryway among the stately buildings of Market Street only hints at the layered elegance inside.
Bed and Bath
Housed in a circa 1844 brick building, the inn has 64 guestrooms that envelop you in Old World elegance. The 18th century–inspired decor extends from the heavy floral drapes and gilt-edged picture frames to the handcrafted four-poster beds and marble bathrooms. All have carpeting and cozy armchairs that invite you to curl up and read. Bathrooms are sleek, with white Italian marble and either tub/showers or deep soaking baths. The aromatherapy bath products are by Dorothy Prentice.
The hotel’s Peninsula Grill, known for seafood and steaks, is always on the lists of the city’s best restaurants and has a loyal following among local foodies. Book your table well in advance. The restaurant’s bar, rich with dark woods and managed by mixologists who are among the best in the business, is an exquisitely classy place for a cocktail or after-dinner drink. There is no spa or gym, but the concierge can direct you to a sister property for a workout or recommended a nearby spa for services.
