Editor’s Review of Belmond Charleston Place

This upscale 435-room historic hotel (voted among the Top 10 Hotels in North America by Conde Nast Traveler) sits right in the middle of a ton of family-friendly activities and sights in the heart of Charleston's historic district. Located on the corners of King, Market and Meeting streets, Charleston Place is adjacent to the Old City Market, where women have sat for generations weaving sweetgrass basket creations to sell. It's also within walking distance of all of the historic district's sights and attractions and is surrounded by the district's centuries-old architecture, cobblestoned streets, intricate ironwork and general, all-round antebellum ambiance.

The hotel itself is quite grand, starting with the Italian
... more marble lobby featuring a Georgian Open Arm staircase and a 12-foot hand-blown Venetian crystal chandelier. The hotel's spa, indoor/outdoor pool, three restaurants, club-level lounge and 24-hour room service will also not fail to make an impression. The likes of Richard Gere, Prince Charles, Oprah Winfrey and Julia Roberts have slept here, not to mention several U.S. presidents and even the emperor of Japan. No wonder it's held in high regard. less

All guestrooms come with hair dryers, irons and ironing boards, plush bathrobes, Wi-Fi, and TVs that have DVD/VCR players. The housekeeping staff attends to rooms twice a day, including an evening turndown service with chocolate. Overnight valet parking is available for an extra charge. Rollaway beds and cribs are available to all guests at no charge. If you have older kids and want them to stay in their own room, adjoining rooms are available.

Deluxe Rooms
Charleston Place's standard rooms (which the hotel calls deluxe rooms) come with either a king-sized bed or with two double beds and a mini-fridge.

Club Level Rooms
The top two floors of the hotel house only Club Level rooms, which come with either a king-sized bed or with two double beds. Although these rooms are the same size as the standard rooms, they have fancier furnishings and a better view of the surrounding historic district. The biggest advantage to reserving one of these rooms, though, is the private lounge just as you come off the elevator. Here, you can get a continental-plus breakfast, afternoon snacks and tea, evening hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, and after-dinner desserts and cordials, not to mention all-day beverage service -- all complimentary. The Club Level also has its own concierge, just outside of the lounge.

The junior and one-bedroom suites offer a separate living area, sleeper sofa, mini-fridge and a dining table.
