Planters Inn

Planters Inn Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Planters Inn is an intimate 64-room, luxury boutique hotel with historic charm and antique-style furnishings. Situated across from Charleston’s City Market, the Planters Inn, part of the Relais & Chateaux chain, is within walking distance of shopping, dining, and sightseeing. Rooms feature hand-carved mahogany beds and custom mattresses, and bathrooms have Italian marble counters. Those looking for more features, such as a pool, may want to consider the nearby Market Pavilion Hotel.
Harbour View Inn

Harbour View Inn Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Harbour View Inn is a historic landmark, and the only waterfront hotel downtown. Original structural elements such as brick walls have been preserved, and the rooms have southern style (four-poster beds and white quilted coverlets). A gorgeous rooftop offers some of the city's best harbor views, and tons of shops, restaurants, and bars are within walking distance. Free extras such as breakfast, Wi-Fi, weekly skyline tours, and treats throughout the day add value, but the hotel lacks a fitness center, pool, and restaurant.
French Quarter Inn

French Quarter Inn Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This stately historic boutique is one of Charleston's best-known hotels, and has plenty of charming southern details (such as a grand wrought-iron staircase) and a location near Historic Downtown's popular tourist sights. Rooms are spacious and have French-inspired decor, and free extras such as breakfast, daily wine and cheese receptions, and freshly baked cookies add value. But there is no pool or fitness center, unlike at the Market Pavilion Hotel.
Market Pavilion Hotel

Market Pavilion Hotel Rating: 4.0 Pearls

This luxurious property is located across the street from the City Market, in the heart of the most upscale area of the Historic District. It seems there’s been more effort put into some of the gorgeous bathrooms (with Hermes toiletries as well as separate showers and tubs) than into the elegant but somewhat plainer standard rooms (the striped comforters in particular could use an upgrade). The Concierge Level is definitely worth the extra dollars, with more opulent rooms and wonderful amenities. The great pool area, the solid rooftop bar and the fine steakhouse are some of the highlights of this classy property.
Francis Marion Hotel

Francis Marion Hotel Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Still considered one of Charleston's grand dames, the historic Francis Marion Hotel has lost some of its luster -- the decor is a bit dated, the bathrooms are small, and the restaurant is only so-so. The hotel's location in historic downtown remains the highlight, and rooms come with comfortable beds, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs.
Embassy Suites Charleston - Historic Charleston

Embassy Suites Charleston - Historic Charleston Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Across the street from Marion Square, the upper-middle-range Embassy Suites Charleston is housed in the original Citadel Military College that looks like an aged fortress. The lobby, with an oddly placed array of plants, oriental rugs, and chairs, isn't as inviting as some other Charleston hotels, but the Historic Downtown location and the large suites -- complete with separate living rooms, wet bars, mini-fridges, and microwaves -- are the highlight.
Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Mt Pleasant-Charleston

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Mt Pleasant-Charleston Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 116-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites Mount Pleasant-Charleston is in many ways a typical mid-range chain hotel, albeit one with extensive amenities, including an outdoor pool, a small fitness center, free breakfast, and snacks throughout the day. Though the rooms are generic, they feature contemporary decor, comfy beds, and flat-screen TVs. They're also extremely eco-friendly, with low-flow showerheads, faucets and toilets. On the downside, the hotel is a drive away from most of Charleston's tourist attractions.
Courtyard Charleston Waterfront

Courtyard Charleston Waterfront Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 179-room Courtyard Charleston Waterfront is located on the Ashley Marina, right off the highway and next to the Medical University of South Carolina. Very little is within walking distance, and the contemporary room decor is pretty standard for a mid-range chain. But all rooms come equipped with microwaves and mini-fridges, and the waterfront pool with landscaped patio and marina views is a highlight.
SpringHill Suites Charleston Downtown/Riverview

SpringHill Suites Charleston Downtown/Riverview Rating: 3.0 Pearls

SpringHill Suites Charleston Downtown is a basic mid-range Marriott hotel. The place is popular with families, since all of the rooms are suites with kitchenettes. There's a decent-size outdoor pool here, and a fun giant checkerboard, but that's about it. It's tucked away a bit, about a mile and a half from Charleston's bustling Historic District, so guests will need a car to get to anything. This hotel is a good option for anyone looking to avoid the higher rates of historic Charleston, but it's a chain in a city known for its authentic southern hospitality and stately charm.
Homewood Suites by Hilton Charleston Airport/Conv. Center

Homewood Suites by Hilton Charleston Airport/Conv. Center Rating: 3.0 Pearls

The 128-room Homewood Suites is an airport hotel in all aspects (minus the noise): it has large, generic rooms with fully equipped kitchens, a decent-sized pool, a small but modern fitness center, and a couple of nice freebies, such as free Wi-Fi and hot breakfast. The main downsides of this otherwise adequate chain hotel are the parking lot views and its distance from the tourist attractions.
