Overview

Old World charmer in the heart of Charleston, with a popular restaurant and wedding-favorite outdoor courtyard

The Look

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.

Beyond

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.

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.

Refused to credit my credit card after hurricane
iamaaggie

I am disappointed that this hotel will not credit my credit card after we cancelled because of hurricane! After talking to manager he said they will give me credit if I want to come back to hotel. We live 1200 miles away and are seniors and they are doing this to all people affected by recent hurricane! They are keeping $314 of my money! Very rude. I am calling BBB and local tv channel and they both said they will assist me! Again this not just me but all people that had reservations during hurricane

Beautiful rooms! A touch of the old days....

We stayed here one night and would recommend the place. We did arrive very late in the evening but we walked inside the hotel and someone park our car. We walked around the area at night and it is close to many things. Wish we could have stayed more and explored the area.

The rooms are excellent would stay here again. The room is reminiscent of the old days or the south, beautiful!

A staple of the luxury hotel scene in Charleston falls short in some areas, strives in others.

Room service was excellent. Turndown service was a great, but the hotel was loud even during a mandatory evacuation.
