Tybeelite Charleston

From the time that we arrived until the time we left, the staff was exceptional. Bellmen William was most helpful, getting us moved in and parking our car. The registration and check out could not have been easier. Our room was taken care of and was immaculate. We highly recommend this Charleston gem.

Wonderful Inn

Our room was very large and the bed was very comfortable. We were in room 404 and had a nice view down Meeting Street and was very quiet. The staff were very pleasant to talk with. They gave us good directions to take a Harbor Boat Tour and a carriage ride. From this Inn you can walk all through the historic district. It was nice to come back to the Planter's Inn in the afternoon for Lemonaide. Maid servie was excellent.

Nice place to stay for exploring the historic district and King Street.

Would have been perfect had the restaurant not been closed for breakfast due to remodeling. The second morning the room they were using was full and we were told there would be a 20 minute wait. I requested a lamp be put in the room by the chair for reading and was assured it would be there when we returned. It was not.

Weekend getaway

The Planters Inn is delightful B&B located in the heart of downtown Charleston. The hotel is right across the street from the market and ideally situated to many of the cities best restaurants. The restaurant in the hotel is also one of my favorites especially if someone else is paying. We found the beds a little uncomfortable, but we are spoiled as we sleep on a memory foam mattress at home.
