Planters Inn epitomizes Charleston in nearly every way imaginable. The lobby is adorned with period-style furnishings and Oriental accents, which makes sense seeing as how the original building dates back to 1844. Throughout the property there’s an understated colonial charm (four-post beds, custom crown molding) that somehow melds with modern amenities (flat-screen TVs, private label spa products) ever so gently. A second building was added to the property in 1997. Its soft pink walls and green shutters say Carolina chic without ever feeling kitschy. The lovely garden that connects the two structures has a fountain and adorable tables, and is dotted with crepe myrtles. The lovely scene is thoroughly Southern.
