Belmond Charleston Place

Charleston, South Carolina

The hotel

Seamlessly blending gentility and old-world charm with cutting edge amenities, Belmond Charleston Place is widely regarded as one of Charleston’s finest accommodations. The jewel in the crown has got to be the horizon-edge 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 historic King Street, 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 body scrubs and all-natural facials. 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 – Social & Shared, Roots & Stems, Waves & Marsh, and Field & Pasture. Choose from savory seasonal seafood dishes or the signature Charleston Grill Crabcakes. 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 Club.

Our room look out over ugly roof with old a/c units Next door to a HVAC closet. It’s 2 am and so loud I can’t sleep - ( no water in rooms -no mini bar - no luxury ) old worn furniture and across from an employee service area. So loud ! We ordered 2 drinks( doubles ) 2 bottle waters and 1 desert $90 This is a 4 star hotel. Not ! No luxury. Rooms are like a Marriott but Breakers Pricing The hotel is in a great location ,the staff is lovely And entrance is pretty. The restaurant was good and waitress was beyond nice and excellent service. But this room. It’s difficult to pay $500/ a night for this horrible room - the view is just ghastly and this oldA/c unit has kept me up all night. I am writing this review at 2am - Oh and beds are hard. No luxury here ! Not in bed,pillows or linens. This is a $99 hotel room. Read less

Hotel just reopened. Everyone so glad to be there, to help with anything. They were so kind. The hotel is beautiful and clean and they have gone the extra mile to exceed Covid 19 standards. Thank you Paul, Louis, Marissa, Gray, Gino, Shelly, Jerry and the rest for your great service. Thank you, Belmond, for caring for your employees so well… Read more

Just had the worst check-in experience. We made our reservation last night and was promised a suite with a separate bathtub and an early checkin. We arrived at the time we had indicated, and was told no suites were ready and they did not know when a room would be available. They offered for us to wait at the pool. When we arrived at the pool/spa… Read more
Just had the worst check-in experience. We made our reservation last night and was promised a suite with a separate bathtub and an early checkin. We arrived at the time we had indicated, and was told no suites were ready and they did not know when a room would be available. They offered for us to wait at the pool. When we arrived at the pool/spa we were told that no reservations were available at the pool deck. When we finally got to the room, no bathtub! After speaking with the front desk yet again, they indicated suites with tubs were not available. Odd, the same front desk team promised they had one for us less than 24hrs ago. The “suite” looks and feels like an Embassy Suites. Which is right down the street for a 1/4 of the price! We have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. But we will find another go-to hotel in Charleston in the future. Read less

Had a great couple of days at the Belmond Charleston Place during a vacation that was unfortunately cut short by the COVID 19 outbreak. We left two days early and drove back to New York after cancelling our flights. The hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance from everything in the historic area of the city. The staff was amazing. We'd never been to Charleston before New Years Eve 2020 when we stayed one night at the hotel. We're normally Ritz Carlton people and were so impressed by the Belmond that we returned just two months later for a longer stay. We booked Club Level and were not sorry. The staff was attentive and extremely friendly with their guests. Damn virus! We'' be back for sure. Read less

Fabulous stay. Excellent pet friendly hotel. Perfectly located. Super friendly, helpful bell staff. Yummy room service. Beautifully appointed rooms. Needed to have working wifi. That unfortunately negatively impacted my trip as I needed to work while there.
