Charleston Place Hotel

As you probably know by now, we went to Charleston, SC last week for John's medical meeting. His schedule was really nice because the meetings were only in the mornings so we got to stroll and tour the city every afternoon.

We stayed at Charleston Place where the meeting was held. The hotel was not cheap even after our group discount so we we talked about maybe transferring to another hotel if there is a Marriott nearby, since we are elite members there. The moment the shuttle dropped us off here, I fell in love with the hotel. I love the fountain with bronze horses.

And when we entered and saw this huge crystal chandelier, I was definitely in love.

When we got to our room and saw its charming decor and lovely colors and how everything was so tastefully done, I knew there was no way John could have dragged me out of there into another hotel, even with the help of the horses, lol.

The room was so beautiful and charming! We even had our own veranda. You see how my jacket matched the decor color? I was meant to be in this room for sure.

The full sized triple mirrored armoire was convenient when getting dressed. I love the 2 yellow chairs with a round table in the corner, so southern.

Even the bathroom was beautiful and roomy. I love the shower curtains. Isn't the carpet pretty? I also like that they had 2 matching luggage racks.

The lobby was full of high end shops. Boy! Did I have fun shopping while John was in meetings!

The furniture were all exquisite!

Another beautiful fountain in front of the hotel. The group was given a cocktail reception here the evening of our arrival. All these fountains and greeneries were just so relaxing.

Here are a few shops in the hotel. The hotel is located in the middle of downtown, occupying the whole block, which is surrounded by shops on all 4 sides. I really had a great time shopping but boy, did my legs hurt from walking too much!

Our room location was so convenient. It was on the second floor so we did not even use the elevators. We just climbed these beautiful staircase to get there. I sure got enough exercise during our entire stay there.

I strongly recommend this hotel if you ever get a chance to go to Charleston. I hope you enjoyed seeing a virtual tour of Charleston Place. Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous, love the decor. You blend right in with the chair! :)

Terra said...

That is a hotel I would love to stay in, sort of like royalty would live. Gorgeous! Can you tell I just read Wolf Hall, about King Henry VIII's court? But this hotel is fabulous looking.

If I ever get to Charleston again I will definitely tell Al to book us here! Gorgeous. I love the chandelier and the floors are beautiful. I'd love the shopping, too! I'd love to hear what you bought!

Sorry I haven't been by in awhile. My blogging is erratic with all that is going on here. I love your new header...the baby is precious!!

Speechless. You just rendered Debbie speechless...

I usually go shopping at the shops in the hotel when we visit there. I think we ate there once too. It is beautiful. I remember the chandelier. I have many memories of Charleston. I am from S.C.

nenette said...

Christine, I love that place. I would love to have that triple armoire in my master bedroom, it will go well with the furnitures I already have. You blended really well with the yellow chairs.
You looked really lovely in all your pictures.

Wow! It's beautiful, Christine! I haven't been to Charleston since I was a child. I think I need to go back! Hope you are having a great weekend!...hugs...Debbie

I am so glad you had such a good time, Christine, and that hotel is gorgeous.

I love Charleston, and I have really seen it change over the years. I kind of miss it the way it was, but I think it is always beautiful. I used to love to shop the antique stores on King Street about thirty years ago, and they had some wonderful old jewelry stores and neat boutique shops. Not sure if any of the old ones are still there, but I loved it so. And I love the men's store, Ben Silver. It's a little pricey, but it has such high quality merchandise. My sister used to buy our guys ties from there for Christmas. :-)

Sorry you didn't get to go to Magnolia's, but maybe you can go back and do that some time.

Wow, this is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing..I have never been to Charleston...maybe someday. This hotel is so breathtaking...Glad to see you enjoying yourselves.

Magnolia Blues said...

WOW!!! I've been telling my husband that I've been dying to go to Charleston. We are thinking of going this spring during school break. I'm going to put this hotel on the list to stay. It looks like you had a fabulous time. I really enjoyed your pictures.


Lynn said...

Beautiful luxury! You are a fortunate gal! I love Charleston. It's one of my favorite cities in the world! Right up there with Sydney and Paris!

Bill said...

Oh, Christine, it would have been a shame if you'd been in Charleston and stayed at any lesser hotel! You looked right at home in all that elegance and luxury. In fact, I kept expecting you to be wearing a diamond tiara in the pictures. You didn't need one though -- you looked like a perfect princess! ;)

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh wow Christine!
Love that place and do you ever look cute in all of the pics!
Just amazing pics, love it all!

Simply Debbie said...

Such elegance...that chandelier is so stunning, it seems like it should have a name more befitting than just a is the queen of chandeliers.
I was actually born in Charleston.
Thank you for sharing pictures and you are very pretty.
