Best hotels to honeymoon at in Charleston, SC...help???

We love the rich southern history and relaxed atmosphere of this city!  Just need some advice on where to stay.  Other "what to do, see and where to eat" advice would be much appreciated too!

Well first congrats on the wedding!  And you're right.  If you're looking for a place to relax and not feel rushed while making memories interacting with history, Charleston is definitely it.  As far as places to stay, it really kind of depends on what you're looking for.  If you want upscale, great views, and in the heart of downtown, then Charleston Place Hotel and HarbourView Inn (which actually has a "Romance Package"), are a couple great choices.  There's also you're higher end chain hotels downtown if you want to save a little money and spend more time out in the city.  Most of the B&B places I've heard of are further north in Summerville, but they always get great reviews, plus you'll have a host right there that can answer any local questions and make recommendations.  If you've done the downtown thing, and want to tour the plantations mostly and enjoy that stroll at your own pace kind of touring, then you'll want to find a spot in West Ashley or Mt Pleasant.  Mt. P is a little nicer than West Ashley in my opinion and they have great shopping and restaurants at Towne Center and Belle Hall Shopping Center.  Boone Hall Plantation is the major plantation over there, and it's pretty big.  West Ashley however has a bunch of other plantations like Middleton Place and Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

As for food, some of my favorite hidden gems are FUEL Charleston (a casual patio restaurant downtown with kind of a Caribbean flare fuelcharleston.com), Bocci's Italian Restaurant downtown (a reasonably priced Italian restaurant with a semi-casual feel and amazing pasta boccis.com), and Fulton 5 (you can dine in on the bottom floor or enjoy dinner on the roof, formal-ish, a little pricier with smaller portions, pretty much paying for the atmosphere fultonfive.com).  Sure y'all will have a fun, memorable time!

We have stayed at the Sheraton near king street and it was real nice, but it has since closed. You may want to look into some bed and breakfasts or even vrbo. The nice thing about vrbo is it is usually comparable in price to hotels and sometimes cheaper because you don't usually get charged parking or resort fees. It is also nice to come back after a day of sightseeing and actually go to a house or condo where it is quieter and relaxing (just always check reviews first!). In terms of things to do there is tons of shopping. Also strolling along The Battery or through Market Street is nice and you can see the amazing houses. Isle of Palms is a short drive and is beautiful! There are tons of amazing restaurants around. FIG is excellent and Hyman's Seafood is delicious but be prepared to wait but it is worth it! Hope you have a fabulous trip

Francis Marion Hotel and Charleston Place Hotel are the best. They're beautiful, they're historical, and they've got the swankiest amenities. They have suites for all sorts of occasions (honeymoons included).

If I had to choose one, I'd say the Francis Marion. It's the most historic hotel in Charleston, and they have authentic bellhops. Plus, it's in the heart of the city.
