My wife and I spent Wed - Sat at the John Rutledge House Inn - we are from N.H. and this was our first visit to Charleston. What a wonderful inn -we stayed in the carriage house and from the moment we arrived, the concierges and support staff were extremely welcoming. The room was spacious and we loved the Tempurpedic mattress. The proximity (walking distance) to great shopping and dining was also a plus. Breakfast was very good and the related service was wonderful - a few days my wife wanted to sleep in and the staff was very flexible with the service. We also enjoyed the relative privacy of the carriage house (only 4 rooms per, two houses behind the inn). We are planning another trip in late October and have already booked our stay at this wonderful inn.
