Why we choose Belmond Charleston Place

The hotel is a magnetic blend of 18th century charm and 21st century comfort

  • Voted the #1 Destination in 2012 by Condé Nast
  • The lobby’s 25 upscale shops include Louis Vuitton and Gucci
  • The VIP Coordinator arranges everything from birthday cakes to theater marquee proposals

Belmond hotels, of which Belmond Charleston Place is one, generally allow their designs to reflect the destination. So when you’re here, you know you’re in Charleston—a nice change of pace from the bland standardized luxury décor too many top hotels fall back on.

We also love that southern hospitality is front and center here; no wonder Charleston consistently ranks as one of the friendliest cities in America.

The first thing you notice upon entering Belmond Charleston Place is that it’s much bigger than it appears from the outside. At almost a full block in diameter and encompassing eight floors, it offers a jaw-dropping 434 rooms.

But not to fear; though large, the warmth of the staff makes it somehow feel intimate. In fact, it may be the staff—along with the massive list of facilities and amenities—that makes this hotel the gathering place for well-heeled locals and travelers alike. Elegant without being stuffy, it rises to the level of “home away from home” they clearly strive for.

With floor to ceiling windows overlooking the historic City Market, Meeting at Market offers a wall of continuous flat screen televisions for catching your favorite sports team. Plus, Meeting at Market serves 20 rotating local, national and international craft beers complimented by elevated bar fare like Fish and Chips and Burgers. Newly opened, The Clock Tower Terrace overlooks historic King Street and downtown Charleston. The rooftop bar serves cocktails and elevated fare daily.

Where is it and what's nearby

Historic Charleston is big on leisure and small on hustle and bustle

  • The many plantations around Charleston give you a peek into a bygone lifestyle and its effect on the antebellum South
  • If you’re an unabashed antiques hunter, you’ve come to the right place for hundreds of general and specialty antiques shops
  • Private walking tours let you customize your experience according to interests like architecture, gardens or military history

Charleston is one of the South’s most gracious cities, where the living, like its residents’ signature drawl, is slow and full of charm.

The Belmond Charleston Place puts you in the heart of downtown Charleston’s Historic District, where a city-wide height restriction means there are no skyscrapers to interrupt your view of the water just four blocks away. The hotel is also within walking distance of all the city’s “musts,” including the Market Place, historic homes, museums and boutique shopping.

How to enjoy South Carolina

With southern charm in spades and more (well-preserved) history than you shake a stick at, South Carolina’s allure is impossible to resist. Do prepare to downshift a bit; things here move at a pace that allows you to thoroughly enjoy every moment

  • Charleston’s King Street is an antique hunter’s paradise, full of chic shops stocking the good stuff: pieces that would be at home in museums
  • Hilton Head has so many resorts, in part, because of its wealth of stunning beaches. More than 10 miles of tree-lined white sand awaits
  • Beaufort’s magical aura makes it a popular Silver Screen backdrop—especially its opulent, centuries-old antebellum houses

Good luck deciding on a South Carolina home base. For pure charisma, Charleston’s picturesque landscape is unbeatable—especially the scenic Battery, lined with lush parks and glorious mansions. And legendary Hilton Head island is synonymous with a lavish good time.

You’ll find that food is your constant companion on your South Carolina voyage. We could fill 1,000 pages with simpering testimonials about the restaurants, but it’s safe to say that some of the best dining in the country can be found here, particularly in Charleston. Some of our favorites include the Charleston Grill (French), Anson (Southern) and Red Drum (haute pub).

    When to visit South Carolina

    Ooh boy, does the temperature soar in the summer! There’s only so much a glass of sweet iced tea can do to offset the hot, sticky mess, so if you’re not a heat lover, opt for any other season—the rest are lovely and mild.

  • Did you know

    Not only is the hotel pet-friendly, so is the entire city; you can take your dogs on a carriage ride through the historic district!

  • We say

    Charleston Grill is one of the city’s finest restaurants.

  • A word from the hotel

    The walking/driving tours with a private licensed guide are the best way to discover all the layers of historic Charleston.
    Chief Concierge, Rick Burton
