I stayed at Wentworth for my birthday celebration. My husband made the reservations and booked 3 nights, one of them being under their romantic package which included champagne, a dining credit and a couple of other things. The mansion is lovely but not grand. The feeling is that of a private home which i quite enjoy.
I agree with a former reviewer re. the location -- a bit away from the middle of things. However, what i mostly noticed was a lack of attention to details. Prior to arrival I called to make a reservation at a local restaurant and gave my name to the attendant. Usually, in finer hotels, once your name is known, it is used. MIne was not.
Actually, my last name was never used during our stay. On my birthday, we decided to use our dining credit at the hotel's restaurant. We had reservations but upon arrival at the restaurant, the staff didn't seem aware of the fact that we were hotel guests or that i would be using a dining credit. We were sat at a terrible table. I complained and was moved to a booth after waiting for about 10 minutes.
The lack of communication was obvious. Since we had the romantic package, the front desk should have made the restaurant aware and we should have been giving more attention.
In summary, if a personalized, service internsive experience is what you are looking for, I wouldn't recommend it. If such details are not essential, the accomodations are indeed lovely and you will feel right at home in a lovely Charleston mansion.
