Where to Stay in Charleston – Our Top Picks






From larger hotels, inns and quaint bed and breakfasts, there are many options to stay in Charleston. We recommend:

1837 Bed & Breakfast, 126 Wentworth St.:  I am really enjoying this small nine room bed and breakfast in an 1800’s cotton planter’s home. The owners and staff were exceptional and were so helpful. I felt like I was a guest in their home. The B&B was started in 1984 so they have a great history of welcoming guests. My room upstairs in the main house was really nice and had WiFi and cable TV, yet in a traditionally decorated  room.

Charming Inns of Charleston: They have four small unique Inns and the Circa 1886 restaurant.

Two Meeting Street Inn: At the end of Meeting Street, along the Battery, this small inn looked amazing. It was beautifully restored with lovely grounds.

Restoration on King: This is a recently opened and renovated hotel. It has received some excellent reviews.

The larger Mills House is where I have stayed in the past. It is a lovely, historic property at 116 Meeting St.

The Market Pavilion Hotel is also getting great reviews along with Zero George Street, a boutique hotel. Other recently featured options include the John Rutledge House Inn B&B, The Wentworth Mansion, French Quarter Inn, Planters Inn, the new Spectator Hotel which was just named as the best hotel in the US in the Travel + Leisure 2016 Reader’s Poll, Fulton Lane Inn, The Vendue Inn boutique art hotel and the Francis Marion Hotel.

I just read about the newly opened Dewberry Hotel in the NY Times. It looks like a really lovely property. 334 Meeting St.
