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.

Geno Matesi was absolutely a godsend. My husband and I originally planned our wedding back in August of 2019 to be held at The Peninsula Grill.

Geno Matesi was absolutely a godsend. My husband and I originally planned our wedding back in August of 2019 to be held at The Peninsula Grill. Of course Covid came upon us and we found out in June of 2020 that the Peninsula Grill would not reopen until late September. I was absolutely devastated and my heart simply broke. We started calling around and just happened to call The Belmond Charleston Place and Geno answered. In the midst of the entire hotel being shut down he agreed to meet with us and assured us that the hotel would be back up and running in time for our wedding on July 18th. Everything was beyond perfectly miraculous. Geno arranged for a bridegroom and bride suite in order for us to have drinks and snacks with family and friends. He let us stay in the Presidential Room that night and it was amazing. The ceremony was beautiful, the reception was magical and the food delicious. Geno and the entire staff made my wedding so incredibly wonderful that I will never be able to thank them enough. They made us feel safe and our guests comfortable right, smack in the middle of the worst of the pandemic. If it was not for Geno and The Belmond Charleston place I would have had to postpone my entire wedding. Thank you Geno and staff. You gave us beautiful, wonderful memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. We are even talking about having our 1st anniversary celebration there also. Belmond Charleston place will always have a place in my heart. Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you. Read less

We stayed here for 5 nights with our teenage daughters After the first night decided to upgrade to a suite as we were crowded in our room w kids spending a lot of time doing online class. Nick at the front desk was super helpful and extremely professional. The change was seamless. Jon and john at the bell station were also excellent helping us to park our large van that we had with us as we were moving my daughter into college after our stay. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. My only feedback would be that it seems a little disappointing that there are only full-size beds in the double rooms instead of queens. The upgrade to the suite included a pull out sofa which was reported as somewhat uncomfortable. Every staff member we encountered was very friendly, helpful and professional We will be back!

We came to Charleston to attend the Malibu invitational water ski tournament. I was greeted in the front entrance by John who quickly showed me where to park. Very helpful in getting our bags to the lobby. Great room for the weekend event . Front desk sent us to 167 Raw bar for lunch. Great start to the weekend.

When visiting Charleston, this is a wonderful hotel. If you can't stay here at least book a reservation for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There food is delicious and the atmosphere in the Lobby Bar is comfortable and welcoming.
