The moment you step foot inside the grand entry of the Belmond Charleston Place, you’ll feel as though you’ve truly arrived. Located in the center of the historic downtown district, take a leisurely stroll (or horse drawn carriage ride) along the cobblestone streets and discover exactly what lures so many travelers to this little piece of beachfront bliss in South Carolina.
The 434 rooms are stylishly decorated with dark wood furniture, plush couches and ornate accents beautifully blending old world charm with modern luxury. They range in size from 400 to 1,200 square feet and come with reading nooks, mini fridges and elegant bathrooms featuring Italian Carrara marble throughout, and walk-in rain showers or deep soaking tubs. Upgrade to a suite or club room and enjoy added amenities such as Juliet balconies to take in the views and complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea, hors d’oeuvres, dessert and a full bar for Club Room guests.
The Belmond Charleston Place has three distinct dining options available right on property. Open for dinner only is the award-winning Charleston Grill. The unconventional menu is separated into four sections—Cosmopolitan, Southern, Pure, Lush—featuring exotic, international fare, updated twists on Southern classics, decadent French favorites, and simple, clean dishes. Rounding out the experience is the live jazz music that fills the restaurant every night.
Guests head to The Palmetto Cafe for a local taste of American low-country cuisine served for breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch. Have a laid back lunch inside the bright, airy dining room, or sit on the other side of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and enjoy the year-round warm weather in the garden-like outdoor patio. The Thoroughbred Club is the spot to mix and mingle while listening to live music, sipping craft cocktails, and savoring delicious tapas plates and homemade desserts.
The Spa at Belmond Charleston Place is known around town as one of the best spas in the area. Guests and locals alike can unwind in the expansive facilities including an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, pool bar, treatment rooms, fitness center, outdoor terrace, and splash pool. Treatments run the gamut from Deep Tissue Massages to a Seaweed Detox and the Luxe 24-Karat Gold Facial. Manicure and pedicure services are also available along with fitness classes such as Thai Chi, Pilates and Boot Camp.
At Belmond Charleston Place, you’re just steps away from some of the area’s best restaurants, shopping, and museums, making it easy to explore all of historic downtown’s charming sites. Prefer to stay in? Lounge around your cozy guest room, indulge in a gourmet meal, or treat yourself to an exceptional spa treatment, all within the hotel’s stately walls. However you choose to spend your time, the Belmond’s luxurious take on Southern hospitality will have you planning your return to Charleston before you even leave.
