Reviewed October 30, 2013

I stayed in the Wentworth mansion for a few days during the week - it is now officially one of my favorite places on the planet. I stayed in a Mansion Room - it was enormous, had a huge sleeping area and two additional sitting/lounging areas. I really wanted a fireplace and made good use of it during my time - you don't actually have to get it going yourself, it turns on and off with a switch and is just heaven. The staff are all so pleasant and accomodating. I asked for just a glass of juice one evening and was pleasantly surprised not to see a $10 addition to my bill, as many hotels so would do. The mansion and grounds are beautiful. The (complimentary) breakfast will keep you full for hours, as you can order real entrees, as opposed to just drinks and pastries (which you can also have). It seems a bit out of the way from the main downtown hub area but it's actually a short walk to everything you would need. If you are looking for an atmospheric, old-fashioned charming place to get away from the pace of city life, this is the place is for you.

I have wanted to visit Charleston, SC for many years having heard about the beauty, history and friendly atmosphere of the city. My husband and I finally made the trip and stayed at Wentworth Mansion. The Mansion made a wonderful trip complete. The room was immaculate, spacious and made one feel so very special. It was like stepping back 100 years in time except all of the modern comforts were right at hand. The staff is friendly and exceeds all expectations re service.
I highly recommend the Mansion.

Very enjoyable, we felt very comfortable and very well taken care of. 1 mile or so away from the downtown, so very quiet. Excellent free breakfast, and very good wine and appetizers for happy hour. Expensive, and not good if you are value conscious.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor with a balcony. Morning coffee was close, and the balcony was great. Room...

The Wentworth Mansion checks all the travel boxes: beautiful rooms, superior service, wonderful food both at the wine tasting and in the amazing restaurant Circa 1886 and a lovely spa experience. The location is a bit out of the way for those that want to be nearer the water but we loved the walk into town and enjoyed the quiet location.

Yeah it's off the beaten path... about a 10 minute walk to King Street... So I do not recommend this hotel to people for their first visit to Charleston... but for my wife and I, it's our choice... We met in Charleston and I used to live two blocks from the mansion, so the location has a soft spot for me.. so in my mind it's the perfect location.. away from the hordes of tourists on King Street but close enough to pop down for dinner or etc... The free parking is also a plus. I haven't paid any attention to the category I've booked but we've always had the same room here. Nice day bed for curling up and reading, comfy king bed and also a fire place. I love spending rainy January days reading in this room.. it's very very cozy.. Good bathrooms with nice tubs/showers. Great service.. Turn down always leaves weather reports and treats. Breakfast is very very very good, with excellent pastries and great cooked options... We had dinner a couple of times at Circa 1886 and it's very good and very convenient... only trouble for it is that there are so many excellent options in Charleston. The massages I've had in the spa also have been satisfactory. Only negative is no pool but not a huge deal- it's a historic property and there just isn't room for that... Visit the cupola to get a nice aerial view as well.. BTW The pedicabs are useful if you're feeling lazy... So in summary, probably my favorite place to stay in Charleston and I will be back.

Thank you to the Wentworth for welcoming our pets! This hotel is spacious with comfortable beds and in a great location. The staff is warm, welcoming, and accommodating with top notch service. Wonderful made to order breakfast included, as well as parking, internet, and afternoon wine. Sodas and water in the room also a nice touch, along with evening turn down and chocolates. We were celebrating our anniversary and found a bottle of champagne in our room one evening. I highly recommend staying here if in the Charleston area.

A simply charming, lovely hotel located just a few blocks from King Street. Beautiful grounds, a warm, welcoming staff and large, beautiful guest rooms. Many of the rooms have balconies, most have lovely sitting areas and very comfortable beds (great pillows!). The staff simply could not do enough to answer every question & handle reservations efficiently and with a smile. I highly recommend this hotel.
