Wonderful Charleston Boutique Hotels!

Charleston is definitely the South’s representative city, and you better be ready to enjoy yourself. Since you’re going to need help finding that perfect place to stay, this guide includes four Charleston Boutique Hotels in historic downtown and one not far from the area in West Ashley. Are you ready to explore these excellent options in Charleston? Let’s go!

Elliot House Inn

Book at least a night at Elliot House Inn and you’ll get to stay in the center of Charleston’s historic downtown. Location-wise, this is a great option for King Street shopping, but there are many reasons to stick around your room at Elliot House Inn. The pool and hot tub are a great start, and you’ll love having room service delivered to your room. Get a head start on everyone else and book one of the 25 rooms starting at $213!

The Restoration on King

Right next to College of Charleston and all the downtown fun, the Restoration on King is ideal for long-term stays with a kitchenette and much more to make you feel at home. With just 16 rooms starting at $275, there’s a small community vibe surrounding this place, and it’s not just the Wine Hour every evening that’s creating it. You can also enjoy a dip in the pool or on-site fitness center while staying at this lovely option.

Planters Inn

Planters Inn is not just another great hotel in Historic Downtown. It’s a truly classy pick with 64 rooms starting at $294. Bring your racket and get a set or two in at their tennis court and relax afterwards in the hot tub. Many people love the Early Colonial period furniture and decorations that really give this place’s character an extra boost. Book a higher floor with a view of the vibrant city market but still quiet enough to relax!

The Meeting Street Inn

Enjoy the Meeting Street Inn for many reasons but that $139 starting price tag is really going to stick out. With 56 rooms to choose from, that wine and cheese hour every night between 5 and 6 pm will guarantee a few new friends made while staying in Charleston. Free breakfast waits outside your door every morning and if you opt for a 2nd floor room with a balcony, prepare for a view overlooking the hotel courtyard.

Town & Country Inn and Suites

Town & Country Inn and Suites is here because it’s one of the top rated hotels in all of Charleston. Found just off the Savannah Highway in West Ashley, rooms start at $110, and you’ll wonder just how with such spacious, wonderfully decorated rooms greeting you. Enjoy your stay here with some time at the pool and a meal at the restaurant and bar on site!

It’s really hard to top these picks of places to stay in Charleston, as you’ll learn after passing through the city. Which one is your favorite? Did you go the full mile and stay in all these boutique hotels while visiting Charleston?
