Sitting on the city’s iconic King Street, Belmond Charleston Place is a timeless gem in this historic South Carolina town. Boasting more than 400 spacious accommodations, it is the largest Belmond property in the world and, with a renowned restaurant, stylish Southern charm and live music seven nights a week, there’s a lot to love about this luxury Four-Star retreat.
The undisputed crown jewel is the Four-Star Charleston Grill. Dark wood paneling, live jazz and a white-tablecloth-clad dining room exude elegance, while beautiful plates bursting with local flavor provide a sense of comfort. Don’t miss chef Michelle Weaver’s crab cakes — a longtime favorite — or any of her exquisite fish dishes.
Their Premier Rooms, featured on our journey (upgrades available) are bright and modern, while echoing Charleston’s rich spirit. Retreat to the cozy reading nook, adorned with original art, or unwind on the plush beds. Bathrooms feature Italian Carrara marble vanities with ample storage, upgraded bath amenities and walk-in rain head shower or soaking tub with shower combination.
Whether you’re looking to burn off those extra crab cakes or just to unwind, the fourth floor is where you want to be. In addition to housing the Charleston hotel’s imitate spa and boutique, the space has a spectacular salt-water mineral pool with a retractable sunroof and a Jacuzzi that beckons for a soak.
