Hotels in South Carolina
From all-inclusive beach resorts to boutique inns crafted from historic mansions, hotels in South Carolina cater to every type of traveler.
For accommodations in the middle of Charleston's vibrant city center, opt for South Carolina hotels with a little history of their own. The Wentworth Mansion's Victorian heritage stretches through its 21 guest rooms, each equipped with its own fireplace, and its turndown service is as traditionally decadent as ever.
Nearby, the Belmond Charleston Place offers attentive service in the heart of the city's commercial district. Book a Club Room for private concierge service, and set aside time for the hotel's afternoon tea service, which is accompanied by live music.
Some of the best hotels in South Carolina along the coast include the Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island. The luxury digs are conveniently located on the first tee of the Harbour Town Golf Links near a buzzing pedestrian mall and are the perfect jumping-off point for island exploration.
Hotels in South Carolina don't get much more quintessentially southern than The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, a plantation-style resort in Bluffton that boasts its own Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, a full-service spa and opportunities for fly fishing and naturalist-led alligator "hunts." Guests say in cottages with gas fireplaces and private, screened porches.
The Inn at Middleton Place is located along the banks of the Ashley River near the historic, 1755 Middleton Place Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. Guests at the inn have access to both the plantation’s house museum and gardens, established in 1741.
Located in downtown, Andrew Pinckney Inn has 37 guest rooms and four suites near the city’s historic market.
Dating back to 1843, the Battery Carriage House Inn is located along the city's famous area known as The Battery and offers views of Charleston Harbor and historic Fort Sumter.
Flanked by grand white pillars and big oak trees, The Willcox is filled with historic southern charm.
Five hundred vacation villas that share the same barrier island and amenities as the Sanctuary (No. 6).
The 25 pine-paneled rooms are beach-rental basic: think patchwork quilts, ceiling fans, and half-baths (caveat: you’ll be sharing the showers, which are scattered throughout the property).
If the walls at Woodlands weren’t so discreet, they’d tell a tale of antebellum grandeur, party-giving as civic duty, and romantic skullduggery.
Mediterranean-style hotel, the area's most luxurious property, on a 370-foot-wide stretch of private beach.
This informal antebellum beach house sits just south of Myrtle Beach. All nine of the simple rooms have ceiling fans and screened windows to make the most of the salty sea breeze (there is air-conditioning, too). The Southern-style breakfast includes biscuits, grits, and crab salad.
Staying at the Planters Inn is akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion.
