Belmond Charleston Place

Charleston, South Carolina

The hotel

Seamlessly blending gentility and old-world charm with cutting edge amenities, the Belmond is widely regarded as one of Charleston’s finest accommodations. The jewel in the crown has got to be the swimming pool with retractable sunroof, a delightful place to catch a few rays and cool off in sparkling waters; it has a very relaxed ambience. Striking ‘porthole’ windows overlook downtown Charleston and the Jacuzzi will ease muscles aching from too much sightseeing! Others may disagree with us and consider the Spa the finest place to be – certainly it’s very indulgent, offering a range of incredible treatments from Deep Tissue Massage to the deliciously satisfying Magnolia Blossom Body Scrub. And then there’s the award-winning bars and restaurants. At the Charleston Grill, world-class jazz music meets mouth-watering cuisine with dishes divided into four categories – Pure, Lush, Southern and Cosmopolitan. Choose from delights such as seared flounder with buttery grits and shrimp or grilled peach salad with country ham and candied pecans. If you’d rather dine al fresco, opt for The Palmetto Café, combining the very best of American Lowcountry cuisine with the freshest of ingredients. For tapas and cocktails, we recommend the Thoroughbred Café, and, as all self-respecting southern establishments offer, afternoon tea is available at the hotel too.

The staff is friendly and helpful. The concierge was very helpful with directions, tickets, recommendations. The breakfast buffet was excellent! If you like iced tea, the peach tea is wonderful. We had dinner one night in the main restaurant. Gourmet food, excellent service! The lounge in the lobby was beautiful, with excellent service and comfy spaces for relaxing and talking. The entire hotel was beautifully decorated and super clean. We will definitely stay here again on future trips. Read less

The service here is impeccable. Everyone is very nice and accommodating. The fitness center is one of the best I have ever seen in a hotel. Peloton bikes are the icing on the cake as well. Really enjoyed my time there. My only complaint was no coffee maker in the room, too nice of a hotel not to is my opinion. Everything is walkable from here… Read more
