Our trip to the Governor's House Inn was great. Sally Anne gave us a great rate because we called her directly. The big selling point was that the parking was FREE and there was high tea at 4PM every day. Parking is at a premium in Charleston so this was a big perk.
The Mansion is just slightly south of Broad Street just east of King (the main drag). Restaurants are 1 to 6 blocks away.
The house is beautifully restored as it was in the 1890's renovations, however the house was originally built in 1750. The rooms are comfortable. Its good to remember that this is building that is almost 300 years old so except it not to be 21st century, which is the whole point.
We liked that breakfast was included. It was not a great as the restaurants we were eating in but saved another slice of money.
Aside from the gorgeous house and the amazing grounds the social interactions with the guests was another gem. The talk in the morning is "where did you eat?" "How was it?" Where are you eating today? We all shared our stories of finding restaurants and great historical ventures at high tea and breakfast.
At night there is a brandy decanter for all to partake of a night cap before turning it.
