I’ll start with an overall impression. My wife and I were thrilled with our stay at the Governor’s House, a very fine inn which we would enthusiastically recommend for any number of reasons. I’ll get to the positives in a minute, after a comment or two. Yes, this is the perfect atmosphere for couples or small groups on vacation, but if you are in Charleston purely for business, you will be in the minority at this inn. Everyone we met was there for pleasure, including a couple of honeymooners. Not a problem for us, but not like a big hotel. The inn does provide wireless access throughout (no charge) so I was able to can connect with the office. Also, if you prefer a large bathroom, be sure to ask when you make your reservation. The inn was originally a pre-revolutionary mansion from the 1700s (yes it truly was the “governor’s house”) and it has been brilliantly updated, which means one or two of the bathrooms had to be created from available space. Our room, although quite luxurious, had a smallish bathroom. In fairness, other guests told us their baths were very spacious, so just ask when you reserve. All in all, we found the situation totally acceptable because of other tradeoffs, including a huge veranda just outside our room, great food, and a very solicitous staff that really shined when it mattered. I especially liked our location, which places it pretty much in between the city’s old battery and the best shopping and restaurants. We felt this was the most romantic part of historic Charleston. The Governor’s House is really quite a place…it is so lovely we often found ourselves just enjoying our down time by sitting around like royalty.
