My wife and I stayed at the Wentworth Mansion last week (late January 2014) for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel is a stunning, historic mansion that is well appointed with elegant antique decor. The staff are exceptional and extremely polite and helpful, as you would expect at a 5 star hotel. We stayed in the East...

Well I don't usually give 5 stars, but after some thinking I thought the mansion deserved it The Mansion has nice antique furnishings, etc. The elevator needs some work and some of the floors are slightly worn but does not take away from the charm. We stayed in room #20 on the 4th floor. Lovely large room with a fireplace,...

We arrived the day after a big ice storm hit town, all shops were closed on King St. We had just left a hotel in FL, where we were underwhelmed despite the strong reputation of that property. So our mood was a little down, but it changed the second we go to this property. We pulled in and Tim came...

There is no need to continue looking for THE place to stay in beautiful Charleston! If charm, hospitality and service are important to you there is no better place. So many extras that make your stay special all through the day. Start with a full breakfast in a world class restaurant only for guests (did I mention its included in...

First, let me say that a small,intimate hotel like the Wentworth Mansion may not be for everyone. But for those seeking superb service, large quiet and beautiful rooms, exceptional dining, and a location away (but not very far away!) from the bustle of the Market area in Charleston, this hotel cannot be beat. There's tea and fresh squeezed lemonade in...

Simply put, the Wentworth Mansion in Charleston is a fantastic experience. The Guilded Age mansion has been perfectly preserved and converted into a luxurious 21-room inn with the friendliness of a good B&B and the privacy and amenities of a five-star hotel, including a spa and upscale restaurant. It is truly a unique property. Everything about our stay was perfect,...
