This luxury hotel in the heart of Charleston’s historic district is the perfect base from which to explore this fascinating southern city.
While Charleston Place is a modern hotel, it has sufficient charm and style to not feel out of place in historic Charleston. With a perfect location within walking distance of the historic center, exceptional service and elegant rooms, it is the top pick for those looking for a luxury stay in this southern belle of a city.
The hotel has all the bells and whistles that you would expect from an operator like Belmond (formerly Orient Express). The fourth floor pool area with a retractable roof and fun bar area is the perfect place to relax after a morning exploring Charleston. The ground floor of the property also boasts some indulgent shopping options. If that all sounds like hard work, head to the excellent spa.
The entire hotel, including the rooms, have undergone a recent update. Muted greens and blues combine with elegant touches of Charleston inspired design and furniture. Bathrooms are large and luxurious with the premier rooms having deep soaking tubs.
