We love old mansions and getting to stay in one of the most beautiful old homes in Charleston was like a dream. The ceiling in our room must have been 15 feet high. We felt like royalty in the huge room decorated with the gorgeous formality of a century ago, but with all of our modern needs too. It was so fun to just walk out the door and you're already in a lovely historical neighborhood within walking distance of lots of major sights. We loved climbing several times to the top of the cupola to overlook the city at different times of the day. Breakfast was awesome too.

So to the people wanting to stay at a very inclusive and very service oriented “hotel” (home!), stay here! Anyone wanting personable attention and full service for everything from making your reservations for you to booking your yacht, the mansion offers it all. They will make you satisfied with all of your needs and wishes! I’ll stay here for all of my trips and include friends to enjoy the top notch service and accommodations. The Grand Room, #4, will be our home every time! Bryan and the staff has made every trip to Charleston extra special and effortless. He knows the home like the back of his hand, and will tell you stories that will make you mesmerized. So much wonderful history you’ll want to tell your friends! Photo feom the cupola at sunrise

Beautiful hotel, amazing service! From the minute you check in until you leave they are very gracious and accommodating. It truly feels like you are staying in someone’s mansion as a guest! The breakfast is wonderful and the cocktail hour is great. We loved the location, as it is close to everything but located in a very quiet residential neighborhood.

You can see why they are rated so high. Both Kenneth snd Bryan were amazing. Bryan especially was so friendly, knowledgeable, helpful etc. He booked a tour gave us directions showed us special rooms it was so nice. Truly an award winning SLS Hotel. and worth of it ratings. The location is also central to everything. And the included breakfast is hosted in 1886. When we come back we will be staying again. Also Circa 1886 is on site. Another review to follow about dinner.

My fist clue was when I called initially, no one seemed friendly or that interested in securing my booking , I know these are difficult times but why are you not cleaning the rooms ? This is a very expensive place and although the staff seem to be trying I felt so much was missing in the way of service I have to say the chef was great and the breakfast was excellent..but why are you up charging for Coffee and water? That was annoying and at these prices I felt unnecessary..also since Covid has effected the restaurants so much , you might want to revisit your recommendations, we had a couple of not so great ones and Charleston has soon new great restaurants to offer . Sadly our experience could have been a lot better
