I absolutely LOVED this hotel. Quaint and luxurious. The room was enormous with a fireplace and two person hot tub. The breakfast included at Circa 1888 was delicious and the staff was professional and welcoming. If you can afford it - STAY here - you won't regret it. It's walkable to just about everything we wanted. We were just passing...

We had a wonderful stay at Wentworth Mansion. The service is outstanding, from the concierge and bell staff, to the housekeepers, to the restaurant and spa personnel -- friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and helpful. The mansion itself is beautifully restored, particularly the woodwork, glass and tile, and the furnishings and decorations are as beautiful as the building. The public rooms in...

We loved our stay at the Wentworth mansion. While it is pricey, the room is incredibly unique, spacious, and the service is amazing. We loved our fireplace, great size bathroom, and nice touches for guests (wine hour, games, DVDs, etc). We also thought the breakfast was excellent. Things are pretty walkable from there and they have a great parking area...

We were married in Charleston on May 17, 2017 and decided to go with a different type of hotel experience than usual. I am a Four Seasons/Ritz Carlton type of girl, so I was a little hesitant about booking a smaller boutique hotel. I was very impressed with the service! As soon as we pulled in the parking lot, a...

We stayed for our 20th anniversary for our first trip to Charleston. We stayed in a manor suit which was huge and a nice looking room. Bed was a little lumpy but comfortable. Shower was big with two shower heads which was helpful. Staff were all super nice and helpful and brought us a bottle of champagne for our anniversary....

From the warm welcome we received upon arrival to the cold bottle of water as we were leaving for the airport, there was no lapse in attention to detail, helpful advice, and wonderful service. The mansion is beautiful and kept up really well. Our room had 2 working fireplaces, really neat antique furniture, and an extremely comfortable bed. As someone...

This home, built by Francis Silas Rodgers in 1881, as a home for his wife and 13 children exemplifies stately living at it's best. This 21 room, four story 24,000 sf, splendor is home to the original hand carved marble fireplaces, Italian crystal chandeliers and a roof top cupola. This, our second visit, was simply lovely. The spacious rooms, well...

This is an elegant and well restored mansion on modest but lovely grounds. It is the second largest home in Charleston after the Calhoun Mansion. It is a really beautiful house and setting. The neighborhood is pleasant, quiet, residential, near the college but slightly out of the tourist way. We like to walk and discover much that way, so this...

Wentworth Mansion is the perfect place to stay in Charleston. It is a beautiful, large mansion in a residential area just a few blocks from King Street shopping and the market, as well as College of Charleston.
