The Wentworth Mansion is simply a wonderful, gracious and calm setting for a beautiful vacation. Staff could not be any more helpful, remembering our names, our preferences and always ensuring our comfort and happiness. The cocktail hour is splendid- elegantly served and with excellent hors d'oeuvres. There is a full magnificent breakfast included with your stay at Circa 1886, and... More

I think I've stayed here about 10 times now, since 2000. The rooms are large, and I would imagine it would be impossible to replicate the decor and architecture if built today. The staff is perfectly wonderful. This is a very classy place. The location is great because it is not right on the main roads with all the shops/people... More

A historic Mansion with period furniture. Impeccable service and staff attention. Could not ask for more. The breakfast is included , wonderful selection, and delicious. We had dinner in the restaurant Circa 1886. It was formal but not stuffy. the food was elegant and delicious with the wait staff being friendly but not intrusive. My husband and I also thoroughly...

This is converted mansion that became an office building that is now a hotel. It has 22 rooms and the rooms are quite large. The bed was very nice but the furniture needs some updating. It is a beautiful place and the employees were SO nice. The location is fairly central and the breakfast is excellent. I am not crazy... More

This historic old place offers a great combination of refinement and fun --just like Charleston itself. Very elegant and filled with all the right touches large and small: high ceilings, large rooms, big beds with fluffy comforters. Wine, cheese and chocolate. You'll definitely feel welcome (and a little spoiled). Take a rickshaw bike taxi around the ride basin and through... More

My fiance surprised me on the night of our engagement with a stay at The Wentworth -- what a treat it was!!! Everything in the mansion is luxurious without being pompous or stuffy. Everyone who works there is so so so nice and I felt like royalty throughout the stay. The afternoon wine and cheese is delicious with a big... More

Just returned from a wonderful week at the Wentworth Mansion. We loved everything about our stay- room ( #16) was spacious and beautifully furnished, with a beautiful and comfortable king sized bed, fireplace, and daybed in a windowed nook. There were lots of special touches, like turn down service with chocolates and a note with the next day's predicted high... More

The historic Wentworth Mansion is a gem. The entire staff was warm and very helpful. The room was large and lovely with a comfortable bed, excellent linens, and a great bathroom. Breakfast in Circa 1886 is very good, as are the late afternoon wine and snacks. Everything is included, so no surprises. Also the on site restaurant and spa make... More

Found this hotel at trip advisor. It was everything I expected and more. Pure elegance, making me feel like I was taken back in history. All the details of the home are amazing.

The Wentworth Mansion is an absolutely beautiful example of historic Charleston in a great location just a short walk to King St. and tons of great restaurants, but the service of the staff is what truly sets the Wentworth above and beyond.
