We couldn't have been happier with our stay. The house is beautiful and the staff we very nice and very professional. The house had a lot of historic value, but still had modern comforts. We were within walking distance to everything in old Charleston. We will definitely stay here again.
We stayed in the Rutledge Suite. The minute we walked in it was Wow! Twelve foot ceilings and about 600 square feet of historic beauty. We had a private balcony and a very spacious bathroom. The room has a large king bed with a beautiful canopy. The entire house is like walking into a very well kept 1700’s. The Inn is in a great location in the historic district and just off of King St for shopping and eateries. The staff was very friendly. I would definitely recommend the place if you enjoy staying somewhere that truly represents the history of the area.
My husband and I spent 4 wonderful nights at the Governor's House Inn last week. This was supposed to be our trip to Europe, then trip to Costa Rica, but our Plan C trip to Charleston was absolutely magical. The Governor's House Inn is in such a perfect location! "Q" (and Kim) took amazing care of us; making us feel right at home with her gracious ways and southern charm. Anything we needed was provided and my husband and I were very impressed with the cleaning and sanitation protocols the GHI has implemented to combat COVID. Kathy was fabulous and greeted us every morning. She cared for us and our suite and even took the time to leave us a note and fresh flowers. My husband has an in room massage arranged by the Inn and it was fabulous!!!! The grounds of the Inn are stunning!!! We could not get enough of just sitting on the porch or our terrace and just enjoy the ambiance of the place. And SO MUCH HISTORY!! I can't say enough great things about the Governor's House Inn and her staff! Thanks to them for making our "Plan C" the best trip!…
First, the service and accomadations were safe and all appropriate social distancing, hand sanitizer, regular cleaning, and other safety protocols were followed. Some of the services like morning Tea and afternoon cocktail hour were suspended due to Covid. The accommodations arw spectacular. It’s a great little spot near everything and secluded so you feel like you have a lot of privacy and quiet. Q, one of the attendants, was extremely informative and knowledgeable and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and that our stay was a pleasant one. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay for couples as well. We will definitely be back
We decided to stay in a historic inn because of the incredible history of Charleston. We couldn’t have been more pleased. It’s an incredibly beautiful inn with history of 260 years!!! President Washington dined there, president Taft and Roosevelt stayed there as well Gerald Ford. The people who work there make you feel as though it’s their home as well as yours and couldn’t have been kinder. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone
