This inn is an absolute jewel. For one thing, I love history and even by Charleston standards Governor’s House has an incredible past. Just google Edward Rutledge if you are so inclined. What sets this inn apart is the atmosphere, which is a combination of southern grace, beautiful décor and excellent personal touches from the staff. We loved our suite in the carriage house, named for “the” Thomas Jefferson with whom Rutledge corresponded. We were sufficiently secluded to feel like we had the place to ourselves, but never too far from the inn’s main mansion when we needed it. This room had a queen poster bed but we had no complaints. We loved our living room and porch. The innkeepers made it their mission to take care of us while we explored the city, especially with some excellent dining suggestions that included The Oak, Ansons and Slightly North of Broad. Since everyone has different tastes, it is possible the some people might prefer a larger hotel, but they would never receive the same level of TLC so I can’t imagine anyone would be disappointed at this inn. In my opinion it is in a class of its own.
