You don't really need a reason to visit Charleston, South Carolina, but a romantic getaway isn't a bad idea. Here among the centuries of American history, stately waterfront mansions, and fantastic restaurants and nightlife, you'll have no problem creating an unforgettable itinerary for you and your special someone.
A romantic weekend means something different to each couple, so be sure to research the unique amenities of each hotel option before making your reservation. Belmond Charleston Place, for example, is ideal for couples in search of a hotel in on bustling King and Meeting streets with shopping and restaurants on the ground floor of the property. The opulent bar at The Spectator, Wine Blending Experience at The Grand Bohemian, and the rooftop pool at Market Pavilion all add spice and flair to your romantic Charleston hotel experience.
You could be looking for a more intimate stay, set back from the beaten path and crowds. For those lovebirds in search of peace and quiet, make your reservation at the charming Zero George Hotel, only 16 rooms (each with veranda access looking out on a private courtyard), or the Planters Inn, tucked into a Secret Garden-style leafy courtyard.
Wherever you choose, aim to fully indulge in a romantic walk through the French Quarter at sunset. Your luxury hotel room awaits afterward–with some champagne, perhaps?
