Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We really enjoyed Planters! It was like a bed and breakfast feel with the living room where we had a socially distant fun chat with other guests. Wonderful cookies and lemonade. The staff was awesome. So friendly. And the bar was nice and bartenders were great. Shout out to Wayne and Tyler. Both were great. Great location so would recommend this spot!

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
After visiting Charleston many times and always wanting to stay at Planters, we were extremely disappointed by this hotel- the staff and service were unhelpful and disappointing for what you would expect from a 5 star hotel, let alone one that is supposed to be the historic jewel of the city.
