This 5-Star Charleston Hotel Puts the Charm in Southern Charm
May 16, 2017
At the intersection of Old Southern hospitality and luxury amenities, the 5-star Belmond Charleston Place is a dreamy home-away-from-home with an enviable location in the downtown historic district and legendary local reputation.
In the spirit of Charleston itself, the hotel encourages guests to slow down and take in the surrounding beauty -- and there’s a lot of beauty to take in when staying at the Belmond Charleston Place.
The lobby welcomes guests with a grand staircase and Murano glass chandelier. So, yeah: You know things are going to be good.
In the Grand Hall, the Belmond Charleston Place ups the wow factor with a series of 12 picture windows overlooking the city’s downtown -- there’s also a grand piano (in case it wasn’t already grand enough).
The hotel’s charm continues throughout 434 rooms and suites, including 80 located on the privately accessed Club Level.
For brunch and lunch at the Palmetto Cafe, diners can choose between an indoor table…
...Or a table on the patio of the hotel’s main courtyard.
Belmond Charleston Place’s Riviera Theatre -- a 1930s art deco cinema turned conference center -- dazzles with restored original features inside and views of the city up top.
The indoor/outdoor rooftop pool provides for maximum functionality, relaxation and Instagram potential.
Come dinnertime, the AAA 4-Diamond Charleston Grille serves up Southern-inspired dishes alongside craft cocktails and selections from the extensive, award-winning wine list.
After dinner, hang around to take in live jazz music from the Quentin Baxter Ensemble.
The live tunes (and dance moves) continue into the night at the Thoroughbred Club, the hotel’s equestrian-themed lobby lounge.
