If you follow this blog, there's a good chance you're a huge fan of Charleston. So, when it comes time to take take a break from work, why even bother leaving the Holy City? I say skip the stresses of travel and plan a stay-cation instead. In fact, that's exactly what I did earlier this week.
I decided to unplug (well, for the most part) and enjoy a relaxing and quiet visit at the Belmond Charleston Place, one of the city's best luxury hotels. The break would have been amazing regardless, but I was able to really rest easy knowing my stay wouldn't put a strain on my wallet.
Who says being a local doesn't have its advantages?
All month long, residents can save 25% on the hotel's best available rate – plus, 25% off dinner at the Charleston Grill and spa treatments at The Spa at Belmond Charleston Place. It's an amazing deal that I was happy to take advantage of.
After checking in, I got a fantastic massage - complete with a glass of champagne - followed by a quick visit to the sauna. After lounging by the rooftop pool, I enjoyed some drinks and bites on the club level, before heading down to the Thoroughbred Club for a cocktail.
Everything was on point:
- A wide variety of tasty food
- The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet
- All employees were kind and eager to help
- All other service were great
The stay was exactly what I needed. I woke up feeling refreshed and eager to extend my stay. If you'd like to take advantage of the locals package, but don't have the time in August, you'll be happy to hear that the offer will return from late November to late December. The official dates will be announced later.
Offer is valid for Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley county residents with a valid South Carolina ID. Subject to availability and restrictions may apply. You'll need to use promo code: locals only.
