The hotel consists of rooms in the home of John Rutledge (signer of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution) and additional rooms in two buildings near the house. Our room (in one of the out buildings) was well appointed and comfortable, with a private bath, flat screen TV, and WiFi access. A full hot breakfast was delivered to our room each morning (great), and afternoon tea was offered in the ballroom of the house (so-so). Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Located within liberally-defined walking distance of most the attractions in the historic sections of Charleston, but wear comfortable shoes.
