“Can you say, "I stayed in a MANSION..."?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

So elegant, so charming, so large yet so quaint! Thank you Wentworth Mansion staff for helping to make our first visit to Charleston simply wonderful. It felt so special to receive a welcome call before the trip to see if there was anything needed during our upcoming stay. Hearing this was our first visit to the area with no set plans, Mark graciously inquired of our interests and then set up a private tour with Charleston native, Linda Jones of Absolutely Charleston - it was awesome! The location of the Mansion is slightly outside of the main activity which makes it quiet, yet close enough to walk to/from the restaurants and stores. The grounds are impeccable. The breakfasts are so delicious and filling we never ate a full lunch. There are so many nice touches: afternoon refreshments; wine and appetizers (mini crabcakes and assorted cheese/dried fruits - yum!); fresh roses throughout; port/brandy/sherry; in room refrigerator with complimentary drinks. Speaking of the rooms......"A"-mazing!! We stayed in an East Wing Room. Upon entering we walked through a small hallway past the massive bathroom with a 2-person soaking/jacuzzi tub and fireplace. Classical music filled the air in both the bathroom and the living/bedroom- where a second fireplace was located. I had requested a room with a balcony - lovely to open the doors in the morning with a fresh cup of coffee secured from the downstairs parlor and plan the day ahead. Next time - yes, there will be a next time - I will spend less time exploring the city and more time at the Wentworth Mansion. The one recommendation I would make to anyone able to splurge on a stay here is to get your touring/exploring out of the way before your stay. Make time to just relax, enjoy the views inside and out, and take full advantage of the experience of the Wentworth Mansion.
P.S. - thank you for recognizing my birthday... it was an extraordinary visit!

Room Tip: East Wing rooms may be able to accomodate a balcony request.

I am thrilled that you had such a memorable first visit to Charleston. Thank you for choosing to spend your birthday and first trip to town at the Wentworth Mansion. A walking tour with Linda Jones is one of the finest ways to experience the city. She is so knowledgeable and provides a wonderful welcome to Charleston. We appreciate your detailed notes about the inn and cannot thank you enough for the glowing review and recommendation. We hope to see you back again soon!

21 large rooms in an 1886 southern mansion, full of oak, Tiffany windows and plenty of gustatory amenities all day long. Very good restaurant out the back door. Easy walking to good restaurants , corner store, CVS, shopping; safe neighborhood a little on the tacky side (watch out for the sidewalks). Most cab/pedicab rides are $10, except for the airport, so you don't need a car. Very friendly and helpful staff will arrange delivered lunches, cabs, flowers, tours, etc. Lots of honeymoon couples, some infants, but not noisy at all. Gay-friendly as well. Can provide a free pass to a nearby (but small) fitness center.

We completely enjoyed our stay at the Wentworth mansion, The property is well cared for, the service is terrific. Very cozy, relaxed and accomodating. The location is good, easy walk to King Street and close to the College of Charleston. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I spent several days revisting charming Charleston.The mansion is the perfect location for a romantic get away. We were able to arrive to most of our destinations by foot or pedicab. We enjoyed the afternoon lemonade, wine, and appetizers. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts and service. Although we do not travel with our dog we noticed that they have dog friendly rooms. When we return to Charleston we will definitely stay at the Wentworth Mansion again.

Room Tip: Our room was on the top floor and had a beautiful fireplace, bathroom, and sitting area. You could w...

As a frequent business traveler to South Carolina, the Wentworth Mansion has become my home away from home. The staff's genuine hospitality and beautiful peaceful setting, is the perfect place to escape after a long day at the office. There are many amenities included such as free parking, and breakfast from the award winning Circa 1886. I am so thankful to have found such an amazing place to stay that represents Charleston, South Carolina at it's very best.

This was our first visit to the city of Charleston and the Wentworth Mansion and we came away very impressed. The hotel has everything you would expect from a five star property but with special personal touches that you would normally associate with a B and B. The staff met our every request and truly made our stay memorable. The spa although small was intimate and relaxing and the services excellent. Looking forward to our next visit.

Its rare to find a hotel with the level of service like the Wentworth. It has everything. Ambience, great restaurant, the most attentive staff we've had in all the years of traveling throughout the country and Europe. Away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to everything you would want to see. The price is on the high side compared to other places in Charleston but you are not wanting for anything. There is no "nickle and diming" . Next time in charleston we know where we will be staying
