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.
How to Get There
We LOVED the Belmond CP, from the moment we arrived we began to recharge and relax. The staff were wonderful and couldn’t do enough for us. Our room was clean, comfortable, quiet and gave us the little bit of luxury we were after for a few days away. First timers to Charleston we found the location perfect for exploring downtown and walking out and back through the day. King Street one side and Meeting the other, perfect! What an amazing city! We didn’t have a car so not sure how parking works here but used Uber and super easy pick ups from reception. Would love to come back! Got a great rate as booked part of package with BA. Top pool, cute rooftop bar and loved the daily piano player in the Thoroughbred bar around 5pm. Palmetto breakfast nice but pricey, only ate here Day 1, then went out to nearby places just outside the hotel.
We were there as part of our business getaway. We had numerous staff and guests. Everyone enjoyed the wonderful treatment we received at the Belmond! From arrival to departure, every possible amenity was provided by a caring and helpful staff.
We stayed for three nights last week on the seventh floor concierage level. Found the additional cost to be a great value as we had three couples. The lounge provded a great meeting place and the cocktails and food offerings provided were wonderful. Perfectly situated within walking distance to almost everything.
