The building itself is so gracious in appearance. The public porch is a super place to sit and relax with a glass of wine and meet new friends. The main floor is beautiful with the dark wood curved staircase leading to the second floor rooms. Our room, the Middleton Suite, was very large with easy entry onto the huge second floor porch for wine and cheese with our five friends. The third floor rooms were rather small and confining. The three owners hire staff to take care of the guests. Our greeters were two young and friendly fellows who settled us in. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. It seemed that each morning we had different folks serving us with one older woman interrupting our conversation in order to do her job. I thought she could have been a bit more tactful and patient. The Inn is fairly close to most Charleston restaurants and the waterfront. Don't miss a Rickshaw ride to or from your dinner restaurant. We recommend the Governors House Inn to anyone planning a trip to Charleston.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Governor's House Inn offers the rare pleasures, aristocratic comforts and romantic grandeur of a pre-revolutionary National Landmark. We are the only inn in America where you can sleep where a signer of the Declaration of Independence once lived. With magnificent drawing rooms, boudoir staterooms, and expansive veranda porches, it is no wonder that the former Governor's mansion was proclaimed the most glamorous of Charleston inns by Travel Holiday. ... more less
