Staying at the Planters Inn is akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion. As in many of the city’s historic homes, rooms in the 1844 property feel like mini-museums, decorated with antiques and furnished with period reproductions from Baker Furniture Company’s Historic Charleston Collection. Spaces also have large four-poster beds, high ceilings, and bathrooms done in Italian marble. The hotel is also home to the Peninsula Grill, a Lowcountry institution and one of the best restaurants in town.
