We really enjoyed this beautiful inn right in the heart of downtown Charleston. Located right off the corner of Market and Meeting the location couldn't have been better. Everyone we encountered at the hotel was extremely helpful and friendly from the valet to the people you would pass in the hall. It makes a difference. There is a living room area in the front furnished with antiques and has a buffet that is laid out with coffee and tea service. We stayed in the Governor's Suite and it was really wonderful. There was a large sitting area with fireplace, sofa and chairs decorated with mixed period pieces. Romantic and cozy. The separate bedroom with king bed was pretty, well furnished and very comfortable. The bathroom was updated with marble and pedestal sink and of a good size. All in all the room was beautiful. We dined in the Peninsula Grill and it was a fabulous experience. The room is elegant and sexy with brown velvet walls and period portraits. Service was outstanding and the food was amazing! Great evening. Hate to rave on and on, but it was all well deserved. This is a great choice for a romantic stay.
