We stayed at the Wentworth Mansion for two nights during our first visit to Charleston. As we pulled into the private lot, we were met by one of the staff to help us with our bags - we had not called ahead and they had no idea what time we were arriving. What a terrific first impression! The staff was... More

For lovers of historic buildings it is highly recommended to stay at WM. A truly purist eye may see a few details of the restoration that could have been handled differently but overall the impression is that of only a slight transformation into today's hotel. Enjoy generous rooms with nice period furniture, huge baths and 15 ft ceilings. Staff in... More

We stayed at the Wentworth Mansion for two nights and we must say that even though the house and the decor is nice it is way overpriced. We stayed in an East Wing room. It was average size, the bathroom was huge, we must admit. The thing we did not like the most was the cleaning staff. There was an... More

We appreciated you bringing this to our attention, which we corrected immediately and sent a bottle of champagne with an apology card.

Our first visit to this lovely city from Austin, TX and it surpassed all of our expectations. The staff was universally friendly, warm and seemed to anticipate our needs and questions about the area. Our room was impeccable with many elegant touches. We highly recommend Wentworth Mansion to those looking for an elegant and romantic stay in Charleston.

This was our second visit to Wentworth Mansion, and the staff treated us as returning old friends. Stayed in a garden room (#2), and it was both elegant and spacious. With the addition of one chair, the sun porch was large enough for six people to gather for an hour or so. Situated in a residential area, Wentworth Mansion affords... More

If you are a history buff, this hotel is for you. It is truly authentic and charming. The mansion room we stayed at was beautiful, spacious, and clean, but just a little dated… If you prefer a more modern hotel, Wentworth may not be the best choice for you. We were very impressed with the staff - all professional, friendly,... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Wentworth Mansion in late July, and it was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable stays we've ever had at a hotel/inn/B&B. To place this in context, we've lived abroad as expatriates for 15 years, and have stayed at some of the finest hotels in the world on 4 continents. This place... More

this was our 2nd stay at the Wentworth and it is well worth the price! better than any hotel we've stayed in. Love the old charm, the vastness of the mansion, and the Circa 1886 restaurant is fantastic. We absolutely devoured our (full) breakfast both days which is complimentary. The staff treated us with great care no matter what our... More

This place is awesome. From the time you arrive, you are pampered and every need/want is met. The room we had was beautiful, spacious, and so clean! We stayed in room 3 which is handicap accessible. If I ever go back to Charleston, I will stay here!

This may be the most elegant Victorian mansion hotel in the South with a top class fine dining restaurant. It exudes "elegance" and is added for us another jewel in Charleston's crown as the most the queen city of The South. The service was consistently outstanding throughout both the inn and bistro and entire experience left a never to be... More
