A member of upscale Relais & Châteaux collection, this exquisite, 62-room hotel lives up to its A-list reputation. The lobby is filled with reproductions of 18th-century furniture and an attentive staff is poised to meet guests' every need. Private, romantic rooms have high ceilings, crown moldings, antiques, canopied four-poster beds, and marble baths. The two "plantation kings" overlooking the lush garden are the largest, quietest, and most popular. Street-facing rooms have white-noise machines. The famed Old City Market and shops of trendy upper King Street are nearby. Peninsula Grill is a hot ticket for a romantic dinner; book at least a month in advance.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
"It felt like we were taken back in time" at this former dry goods store near City Market, where today the lobby has an eight-foot oil portrait and a grand antique Asian rug. The inn's two buildings surround a courtyard with palm trees and fountains. "We dined in the courtyard one night, the whole city was out there!"—the "prime location," puts "all of Charleston at your fingertips." Southern-style rooms have traditional four-poster canopied beds and high ceilings. The Peninsula Grill, where the cuisine skews classic American, "effortlessly catered to my wife's special food needs."
