COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE is how I'd summarize my experience at Two Meeting Street Inn! I have VERY high standards and this inn EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS in every way!
The perfect location, luxurious accommodations, well kept common areas, superb food (5-Star quality in my opinion) and the AMAZING STAFF made me fall in love and take the time to write this review.
I had a VERY difficult time departing although I stayed for 5 nights, could have EASILY stayed another week! I was highly impressed with breakfast, afternoon tea, willingness to pamper me asking if I needed absolutely anything, i.e. taxis, dinner reservations, fresh tea at any moment, assistance with planning activities, etc. This Inn has ZERO room for improvement and I hesitate to brag too much as I'm concerned about my own selfish future vacancy issues as I want to keep it as my little hidden gem! ;)
The staff blew me away even before my arrival! Wendy is AMAZING and it's funny how I got to know her prior to my stay as I'm a planner and called the Inn a few times asking random questions, even to the point where I knew I was annoying, lol! Wendy was super knowledgeable, pleasant and patient, and definitely made positive impression on me. i was further impressed upon meeting her in person! Christine was another lovely lady who I got to know and enjoy, who often went above and beyond to assist me in every way. Also, since I was traveling solo, I had a great opportunity to converse with many of the other ladies on staff (how I regret not remembering all their names) and felt a genuine fondness of them all. Heck, even the gentleman on staff who handles various facilities requests was so kind and friendly!
I also had the lovely experience with meeting the classy and gracious owner/innkeeper, Miss Jean, who took the time to shower all the guests with her lovely charming southern hospitality, sharing stories of Charleston's history and even personal events with such a genuine touch. I can see why her Inn is such a success, as she even treats her staff like family!
In closing, I honestly feel you will not go wrong staying here as TWO MEETING STREET INN IS PERFECTION AT ITS FINEST!!!
God willing, I WILL be a regular every year! :)

P.S. The wrap around porch was simply a piece of heaven! You can just relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the trees, flowers and park view, get lost in a good book, or chat with friendly guests and staff (btw, another great feature of this inn is there was no obligation to chat with others during breakfast or afternoon tea which was a nice option and made me truly relaxed)! I am a social butterfly, so it was enjoyanle for me, however, I know some folks prefer keeping to themselves which is fine--my point is this inn works for all!).
