White Point Gardens

Park
1 mi. away
Located in the heart of Charleston’s historic district, this prominent landmark provides a spectacular view of Fort Sumter and Charleston Harbor, where the Ashley and Cooper rivers empty into the Atlantic Ocean. It was first used as a public garden in 1837. With the outbreak of the Civil War, it became a fortification for the city. Visitors today also find an impressive display of historic mortars and cannons from the Civil War used to shell as well as defend the city. At the corner of Murray and East Bay there is a Confederate monument. In the early 1720s, the infamous "gentleman" pirate Stede Bonnet was hanged here with about 50 others like him. Townspeople filled the gallows area and jeered as the outlaw was brought to his rightful end. Bonnet was buried in the nearby marsh. His epitaph has been memorialized and stands today in the park.

Welcome to Planters Inn, the iconic hotel located in the very heart of Charleston's spectacular Historic District. Winner of Travel + Leisure magazine’s #1 Best U.S. Boutique Hotel Award, recognized among the Top 100 Hotels in the World, and South Carolina's only Relais & Châteaux Hotel. The 64-room Planters Inn Relais & Châteaux is Charleston's beloved Grande Dame hotel, an artfully preserved architectural treasure located in the true heart of the Historic District. Uniformed doormen usher guests inside the gloriously restored circa 1844 building to a sanctuary of hushed elegance and refined Southern style with soaring ceilings, silk window dressings, dozens of working fireplaces, and handcrafted four-poster beds from the Baker Historic Charleston Collection. There’s more to Planters Inn than meets the eye: A hidden garden courtyard illuminated by flickering carriage lanterns provides a romantic sense of arrival to Peninsula Grill, the best restaurant in Charleston for 20 years running. Planters Inn and Peninsula Grill are South Carolina's only members of Relais & Châteaux, the exclusive collection of luxury boutique hotels and gourmet restaurants located in the world’s most romantic destinations. Travel + Leisure magazine named Planters Inn the #1 Best U.S. Boutique Hotel (2014) and described the experience as “akin to an overnight with well-to-do friends in their old Charleston mansion.” Planters Inn is located in the very center of Charleston's stunning Historic District, and the city's top shopping and cultural landmarks—Rainbow Row, Waterfront Park, The Battery, South of Broad mansions, and the Charleston City Market—are mere steps away.
