Like other parts of Planters Inn, the rooms have an understated elegance about them. The Grand King and Plantation King accommodations come with thoughtful sitting areas, travertine-marble-floored baths and Baker Historic Charleston Collection king-sized beds that make the place feel like an apartment that could be found in a quaint European town. When you step up to the next level of accommodations, you’ll see the Governor’s Suite, which is essentially 600 square feet of similar furnishings that’s been accentuated by hanging plates, antique trinket boxes and other pieces of colonial-era charm. But even with the Southern daintiness found about the rooms, modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs and dimmers on most light switches are always within arm’s reach. So, it’s no wonder why when Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb visited the city back in May 2013 for the Today show broadcasts, they stayed in one of the suites.
