Staying at this restored 1886 mansion was wonderful, but the kind, genuine and unpretentious staff was better! Having just flown in from Seattle (where my tomatoes and petunias were begging for a temperature exceeding 58 degrees!) I can scarcely tell you what a pleasure it was to have breakfast (complimentary) on the patio with birds chirping in and an 85...

Thank you for an exceptional review of the Wentworth Mansion. It must have been a real treat to escape Washington for Charleston during the month of May! I am thrilled that you had such a lovely stay. Our staff was recently awarded 'Best Service in the U.S.' by Travel and Leisure readers. Stories like yours only reinforce our values. We...

My husband & I stayed in the Wentworth for our anniversary, & we were not disappointed. The staff are outstanding, so helpful & friendly. We booked a Mansion room & were on the 3rd floor. Rooms are spacious & comfy w/ fireplace. The breakfast at Circa (w/ Ms Betty was a treat), the wine & hors d'oeuvres at 5pm were...

We were drawn to this hotel by the reviews of other travelers. It is over rated as a small luxury hotel for the accommodations. For the rates charged you should receive outstanding accommodations and service. What you are paying for is to stay in an 1886 converted mansion. For $500 a night (incl. tax), Mansion Suite, you should not have...

My brother-in-law and I both turned 40 this month and we decided to go to Charleston to celebrate the occasion for a long Memorial Day weekend. As a group, we booked three rooms at the Wentworth Mansion. The first item that bears mentioning is the service. We were met at our taxi by a team of staff, one to greet,...

This lovely mansion has been restored with a care that preserves its original spirit. The rooms are lovely and the bathrooms sumptuous. The breakfast and 5 o'clock 'cheese & wine' are so much more than one is used to. In all the effects it is much more than a B&B - more like a small boutique 5 star hotel. But...

Excellent room, service, and dining. Fifth floor viewing area is great. Stairs to lobby may be a problem for some seniors. Walking to major shopping and historic sites. Circa 1886 restaurant puts on good breakfasts and has $42 three course dinners for guests -- a great value.

this place is thoughtful, elegant, tasteful, and very comfortable. We stayed in the main building (there are 3 rooms in the "east wing"). Our room had tall ceilings and very comfortable furniture. I will say if you want to delegate things like dinner reservations etc. than the concierge is the way to go. They did a great job for us....

Absolutely gorgeous historic inn/ small hotel. Beautifully restored and decorated. The room was just beautiful. The breakfast each day was delicious and delightful. We also had dinner at the inn's restaurant which was equally great. Terrific staff who were always available and very helpful. Overall just a charming delightful experience.

This is clearly not a hotel for everyone. But, if you think you would enjoy an experience in a historical hotel this would be an excellent choice. The staff could not possibly be warmer as they all exuded "southern hospitality". Our room was comfortable, clean and well decorated. It was a beautiful ten minute stroll to our dinner in the...
