Planters Inn | Charleston, South Carolina

As a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux you know you are in for a treat if you stay at Planters Inn, and the hotel does not disappoint. In the middle of Charleston’s historic district, the 64-room Planters Inn is housed in a beautifully restored 1844 building. The building was originally a fashionable shop but time and the 1989 Hurricane Hugo took its toll and it needed much renovation. This came along with a preservationist determined to preserve the building and create “the finest historic hotel in the South”.

The multi-award winning Planters Inn has glorious bedrooms with one or two four poster beds, complimentary wi-fi, luxury Italian linens, and marble bathrooms. A nice touch is the complimentary tea and coffee or iced tea on offer in the parlour throughout the day.

New York to Toronto – 2015 (Smith)

I have just returned from a tailor made holiday made possible by Jeannette Dembrey. This was the first time I had ever organised such a major holiday and as it was a gift for my children after my retirement it was really important to get things right. I went to quite a few agencies but Jeannette was way better than any of the people who I spoke to. She was so professional and wanted me to get the best from the money I could afford. The holiday was absolutely amazing and everything went like clockwork. Jeannette had thought of everything even the connections between places and the things we would do in each town. We stayed in 6 hotels altogether starting in New York and ending in Toronto. I am amazed at how smoothly it went. Even my son who has travelled all over the world was impressed with the way things had been organised. I cannot praise Jeannette enough for her professionalism. Thank you Jeannette. I would recommend you to anyone with the satisfaction of knowing that you did an amazing job. Thank you.
