"Girl's Weekend-Southern Style"
This was my second stay at the Belmond, and it did not disappoint. Upon entering the lobby, your eye is immediately drawn to the beautiful chandelier that is it's crown jewel. But don't be fooled by the luxurious surroundings, which in many hotels spells snootiness, because their southern hospitality will draw you in and make you feel right at home. From the staff, who are so welcoming, to the spacious and clean accommodations, you will be happy to call the Belmond "Your home away from home." As an added plus, the hotel is centrally located to all the great shopping and amazing restaurants so you can walk to many attractions and take in the sights.
"Southern Charm and Hospitality"
We visited only for one night since we were just driving through. We had reservations at a different hotel however upon arrival we learned they could not accommodate us so they refunded our money and we looked to Belmod Charleston Place for a last minute reservation. Our experience started with valet who found (actually made) a way to accommodate our truck and trailer (we were headed to our cabin). These must be the friendliest valet guys and it is so important since they are actually the first point of contact for the guest and after being tired from traveling, also the most important for efficiency and friendliness and these guys were fantastic. Then we moved to the check-in process which was also friendly and efficient. Everyone was very friendly and seemed to look for opportunities to be helpful. Cannot overstate that. The hotel is very charming with an upscale traditional southern decor, with maybe a French influence. I am not an expert on interior design but there are plenty of photos to give you an idea. There are some very nice small shops and boutiques located right in the lobby. The rooms are well appointed. Great lighting (can be an issue in historical hotels). Robes and slippers. Current room service menus and channel guides (its the little things but you have to admit it is a bummer when it is absent or not current). A quaint Juliet balcony. I did wish for a nicer hair dryer (it was kind of cheesy but that is probably my only negative). Noted there is no coffee in the room (heads up!). Room service was great albeit pricey. From the friendly person who took the order to the friendly person who delivered the food. My husband ordered a steak that was so large he could not finish it (that would be unusual for him, he is a very large man with a very healthy appetite). The hotel is conveniently located downtown in the middle of everything. We had a great experience and plan to return. We would recommend the hotel.
"Quality, class and luxury"
If you can spring it, the Belmond is the way to go. From the stunning lobby to the rooms, no expense was spared in the build of this hotel. The staff is all top notch, and there is ample conference space for meetings and large gatherings. I was here on a business trip, where conferences, workshops and panels were held inside.
"Great location "
This is a big, beautiful and expensive old hotel. The location is great with shopping in the hotel and right out the door. Much of Charleston's best dining options are within walking distance and the market is less then a block away. The rooms have been updated and are comfortable. With so many rooms the pool and outdoor deck areas were over crowded and we were never able to enjoy. No complimentary coffee or maker in the rooms so $10+ from room service or down to a coffee bar in the lobby. The hotel and everything in it is expensive and I just didn't feel we received good value for what we paid but the staff we interacted with were all excellent and it is a great location
The best feature is the very convenient, walkable location. The room was nice but I didn't feel as though it was very clean when we arrived. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. The elevators in the hotel were painfully slow.
