“Worth Every Penny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2005

Wentworth Mansion deserves every bit of its AAA 5 diamond award. The $495 a night was worth every penny. The spacious accomodations, along with the decor, and the hospitality of the Wenworth staff, made Charleston an eventful city to visit. The staff went to extrordinary efforts to accomodate our requests from getting directions to local attractions, recommending and making reservations for fine restaurants, to room service. The private parking was an additional benefit

The room was decorated with furniture reminescent of the turn of the century. Very lovely. The king size bed was huge. The bathroom contained separate bath and shower, which were equally impressive in size. The room even had a separate reading room with an additional television.

Wenworth mansion is well within walking distance of downtown local attractions in Charleston, so it is conveniently located.

With many past pportunities to travel and visit cities in the US and Europe, Wentworth is by far the finest accomodation that my wife and I stayed at. Meticulous research was performed to find the right place to stay with my wife, after my year in Iraq. Wentworth was the choice and so very please that is was.

The Wentworth Mansion is truly an enchanting and memorable experience. We spent three nights in the "billard room" and were so comfortable in this sumptious room that we had to force ourselves to "get out and about" to explore the city and local plantations. The bathroom was a gem with a huge Jacuzzi with windows that provided a lovely view. It was a challenge each evening to decided whether to begin with wine and hors d'oeuvres in the parlor or watch the sun go down in the enchanting cupola overlooking the city! The rooms are exquisitely appointed with cheery fireplaces, period furniture, Persian rugs, and distressed hardwood floors. Usually I am ready to return home when a trip has come to its end, but my stay at the Wentworth was so special, that I didn't want to leave. The staff was extremely responsive, but never snooty or intrusive. They made terrific recomendations for sightseeing and dining- one of the best being their very own restaurant, Circa 1886! I give the Wentworth my highest recomendation! It is a very, very special inn.
