We had the good fortune to be guests at the Wentworth Mansion for 3 wonderful days in Charleston. A beautiful and well appointed room, superior, friendly and efficient service, divine breakfast and a gracious welcome for our Springer Spaniel. We loved every minute of our stay - the staff gave great advice about touring Charleston and on our last night... More

My second visit to the Wentworth Mansion and again a super experience. Large, well appointed rooms, friendly staff, late afternoon snacks and cocktails and a great restaurant on the premises. Although a bit pricy this historic hotel let you discover the 'Old Charleston' in grand style.

My partner and I spent a relaxing and pampered weekend at Wentworth Mansion. The staff are very accommodating, gracious, and highly skilled at organizing your weekend, with private guides and much cultural fare. Breakfast is included in the package, which is outstanding. And, delightful canapes are served in the afternoon, with sherry, port, or a wine of your choosing. Dinner... More

Staying at the Wentworth Mansion is better than touring some of Charleston's historic homes. It IS an historic home, though not as old as many others. I love American history. I love Charleston. I love this place. Terrific staff focused on guests' needs. One of the staff overheard me telling my wife that we were out of gasoline. He volunteered... More

Just staring at the outside of this mansion would be enough to earn it a high placement. A beautiful old building in a nice part of the historic town. In addition to the aesthetic, the staff, rooms, and property are all of the highest standard. We had dinner the night of our arrival at Circa 1886, the restaurant in the... More

The gracious, efficient staff at the Wentworth Mansion makes you feel as though you are coming home. They anticipate and cater to your every need. The property is lovely and the outdoor space is especially welcome in a city setting. It's always a pleasure to return to the Wentworth.

This is a beautiful old house rather reminiscent of late 19th century French style, with lots of wood panelling, high ceilings, period furniture and prints. The bathrooms are to 21st century standards, however as are the bedrooms which are comfortable, very spacious and have wifi, iPod docking station etc. The complementary breakfasts set you up for the day and service...

I know B&B isn't what you think when spending several hundred dollars a night on a room, but effectively that's what this place is (done with the most sophisticated class). Our stay here was with the most attentive and thoughtful staff I have ever encountered. There were all kinds of special touches throughout our three nights. The building is historic,... More

WE were treated like royalty and had a wonderful time. It was my birthday and they took great care of me. The rooms are beautiful and big and the Circa 1886 food was awesome. We would be happy to stay there again.

Two nights at the Wentworth Mansion was just not enough. The room? We call it a studio apartment in Boston. The restaurant served a lovely breakfast, and the parlor at the inn filled the in-between times with drinks and snacks. The staff was always accommodating without being intrusive or fussy. Is it old? Absolutely, so don't complain about that! But... More
