“A nice treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

Wentworth Mansion was a fantastic place to stay and be indulgent - worth the price tag. We were there to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and were delighted to find a complimentary bottle of champagne and candles when we came back to the hotel from dinner. Loved the wine hour...great appetizers, great chance to talk to other guests and decent wines. Beautiful, beautiful room and overall craftsmanship of the inn. Breakfast at Circa 1889 was fabulous, especially the rice flour pancakes. Very nice atmosphere. Did not have dinner there, but based on the breakfast, I am sure dinner would have been amazing there. Will highly recommend the inn to friends and family. Not a single complaint.

What an honor to be chosen as the setting for your first wedding anniversary celebration. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at the Wentworth Mansion- and the surprises left behind by our staff. Breakfast at our Circa 1886 Restaurant is always a highlight for our guests. I hope you're able to enjoy dinner there upon your return to Charleston. We look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries with you.

Sincerely, Richard Widman, Proprietor

As I sit and think about the Wentworth Mansion, I really have zero suggestions for improvement other than moving to Boston. The place is beautiful as the name suggests. The rooms are actually three room suites not including the master bath complete with jacuzzi tub.

The breakfeasts are amazing with incredible Southern Cuisine. You have wine, cheese and gourmet finger foods at 3-5, tea and lemonade in the morning with brandy and port all day(if you choose.

The staff really excelled with just about any suggestion. I really cannot think of anything they did not execute flawlessly...really flawlessly(including the free gym pass)

Wentworth Mansion is truly an experience

We stayed there for our wedding night... 2 nights. First, they were not accomodating of our request to get married on the grounds and didn't offer any alternatives even after explaining that there were 2 people attending the ceremony, which would take all of 15 minutes, we never did understand since the days we were there the inn was very quiet with limited guests. The first impression in the main lobby should have a lobby desk, not a person sitting behind an executive desk trying to look busy. He was very friendly and informative, but you could tell he was bored. Our room was beautiful, but could have used more class, lacking a professional decorators touch to keep the period style matching the era of the mansion. Staff were very friendly, but were seen having a cigarett break outside, and smelling of cigarett smoke. Management would benefit from training the staff properly. What I did like.... the wine and horderve hour was exceptional, and the "all hours" brandy, etc area was great but would be nice moved to an area with more chairs to sit and talk wile sipping. The restaurant on site is top notch!

Room Tip: The elevator only holds 2 people, but the walk up the stairs is beautiful if you're up for it.

We were surprised to hear that we did not accommodate your small wedding in August, as we host many small weddings here at the Mansion. My Innkeeper called you yesterday to get more information. During her conversation, she realized that this request was made months before, when the entire hotel was committed to the PGA Golf Championship held in Charleston that same week. We wish we had known at the time of your stay so you could have had the wedding you desired. I am so glad that you had a wonderful experience in all other areas.

We have a professional A.S.I.D design team that selected the Mansion's interior design. Though we are thrilled with the design of the Mansion, we are aware that personal design aesthetics differ from person to person and appreciate your feedback. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

From the time we were greeted at the door until the time we entered our car to leave for home, we have never felt more special in our lives. The Wentworth Mansion certainly knows how to put on a show! Our room was more than spectacular and everything one would expect from such a notable place to stay in Charleston, SC. Turn down service every night with chocolates, evening cocktails with delicious treats from the adjoining Circa 1886 restaurant, complimentary water and soft drinks in room, along with complimentary three course breakfast every morning at the Circa 1886.....I could go on and on. My husband and I came to celebrate our lst anniversary and were not disappointed. Our every need/want was satisfied. Stephanie, the concierge, made reservations for our anniversary dinner at the Circa 1886 restaurant. Our meal was unbelievable! As if nothing could top that, when we returned to our room that evening, we were greeted with champagne on ice! Thanks to Ben & Tim, the doormen, for all their help. And a special thank you to Stephanie for suggesting Sermets; our last evening was spent there enjoying a tasty dinner along with Brazilian music. What a way to end a perfect stay in Charleston! Aside from all the wonderful other couples we met during our stay at the Wentworth, nothing could surpass the service and the genuine kindness shown by all the employees of this great mansion. This is the only place we will stay while in Charleston. Thank you, Wentworth Mansion!

Room Tip: Any room here would be wonderful. Completely soundproof.

My wife and I celebrated our 20th Anniversery at the Wentworth in August and enjoyed two fantastic days and nights. The historic elegance of the building and grounds coupled with a very attentive staff made for a memorable weekend. The rooftop cupola was a highlight with the great views of downtown Charleston. The mansion is within walking distance to many restaraunts and shops. We also enjoyed using the rickshaw like pedal powered taxi's when going to and from dinner. The breakfast was superb.....try the rice flour pancakes! We certainly would rank the Wentworth as one of the best places we've stayed.
