Charleston’s Best Boutique Hotels
This article was originally created on December 9, 2015. We have kept it maintained and updated (as of March 13, 2018) to reflect current viewpoints and travel trends.
Barksdale House Inn
Book a night at Charleston’s Barksdale House Inn ($100 to $200) and go back in time with an 18th century-designed stay and the choice of 14 rooms. King Street and Meeting Street are right outside and promise guests with the best of downtown Charleston. This traditional hotel still has modern amenities to remind you that this is the 21st century. The $200 price tag during the peak owes itself to demand and the luxury that you’ll find at the Barksdale House Inn.
Creekside Lands Inn
Head down the Savannah Highway to Creekside Lands Inn ($60 to $80) and enjoy a peaceful and quiet stay in the marsh. It’s the perfect escape from the city and a favorite for families and those looking for Charleston’s quieter side. Creekside Lands Inn is dog-friendly and the pool and outdoor deck will relax visitors after hitting the Charleston sights. There are 57 rooms under $100, but I’d recommend booking in advance so you don’t miss out on this special hotel.
Fulton Lane Inn
Fulton Lane Inn ($140 to $200) promises a classy and traditional stay in the heart of Charleston. King, Market, and Meeting Streets surround it, so you’ll be right in the middle of Charleston’s historic district. There are nightly wine and cheese hours at the Fulton Lane Inn, but the hotel’s rooms are quiet enough to keep privacy in mind. With an Old Southern decor, there’s a charm that keeps visitors coming to the Fulton Lane Inn.
The Francis Marion Hotel
Stay at Charleston’s Francis Marion Hotel ($130 to $230) across from Marion Square and find yourself within walking distance from Charleston Museum. The hotel is surrounded by College of Charleston and Charleston Music Hall, to name a couple. Any of the 234 rooms at the Francis Marion Hotel are worth your money, but if you book a King Room on one of the upper floors, prepare to sit high above Charleston and have views of the nearby harbor.
The Inn at Middleton Place
Those in search of seclusion and quiet have been booking the Inn at Middleton Place for some time. A beautiful on-site garden will give your romantic walk an added touch, and the spacious grounds outdoors are perfect for a hike, bike ride, or jog with your dog that’s allowed to come along and stay. Book a room ($180 to $240) with a view of the Ashley River and you’ll see why the Inn at Middleton Place tops romantic and family travelers’ lists when coming to Charleston.
