Overview

Brick-faced gem in the heart of downtown Charleston, with traditional decor and pure Southern hospitality

The Lowdown

The eight-story landmark Belmond Charleston Place is all Southern charm. At the heart of the historic district, sprawling antebellum mansions and palmetto trees surround the hotel, while an enormous chandelier and a sweeping staircase welcome guests into the lobby. All 435 rooms are surprisingly spacious and replete with Southern charm and traditional accents. The feminine gray-and-green-on-blue palette matches the patterned carpets and floral curtains, and there are modern comforts including controlled lighting and free WiFi. Guests on the top two floors have exclusive access to Club Level Room, a sort of hotel-within-a-hotel where rich cream and gold tapestries are paired with sweeping views of the city and all day free food and beverage service. Like the hotel itself, the Charleston Grill is a successful mix of old and new, serving a menu that balances modern cravings for light, fresh fare with the gusto of traditional Southern cooking. Don’t miss the heirloom tomatoes with pork belly pecan streusel, brown butter and sage, nor the lively weekend jazz. The fourth-floor pool is heated year-round and the spot to take an afternoon dip while admiring the impressive cityscape.

In the Area

Visitors can walk the cobblestone streets from the Battery to the French Quarter, immersing themselves in the city’s old world charms. Hail one of Old South Carriage Tours elaborate chariots, where you can do some virtual time travel clopping down narrow cobblestone streets lined with colonial and antebellum buildings. You’ll cover 30 blocks of the historic district in an hour. Or visit the plantations of yore, including Boone Hall Plantation, with an avenue of moss-draped oaks, or Middleton Place, for America’s oldest landscaped gardens. And with some of the country’s most beautiful golf courses designed by the who’s who of the fairways — Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Rees Jones — there’s no better place to experience outdoor beauty while challenging your game. Don’t miss the Kiawah Island Golf Resort, a barrier island spanned by five stunning designer courses.

Vacation at Charleston Place

I will highly recommend the Belmond Charleston Place hotel to my friends, family and associates. We have visited Charleston many times and this was our second stay at Charleston Place. The facility, amenities and location are excellent. Hotel personnel consistently provide excellent service.

Not worth the money

The hotel is nice but lacks value for your money. SPA, restaurants and shops on site are overpriced as well. They did a poor job assigning us a room twice (A/C noise and ADA) before giving us a new room at 11pm at night. We were there for three nights and they never checked in once to see how our stay was going.

Our home away from home

Once again, Charleston Place has exceeded my expectations. I love this luxurious spot in the heart of historic Charleston. I return here at least annually, sometimes more often and am always welcomed back as if by family. The amenities are luxe, as are the rooms...comfy and generously sized. The food in both restaurants is some of the finest in Charleston.
