My wife and I stayed at the Governor's House Inn for three nights recently while in Charleston for a wedding. I have to say that many of the historic inns in Charleston are not what they used to be. However, the Governor's House remains one of the best around. From the minute we arrived the innkeeper, who I believe is named Angela, treated us just like we were in her own home. The room was very tidy, as were the common areas. Our beds were very comfortable and the room was much quieter than I expected in an urban setting. Each morning our breakfast was promptly served savory and fresh. When we asked for help making dinner reservations, the innkeeper (Angela?) found us a wonderful last minute spot just to our liking. She knew many of the local places and could tell us just what to order off each menu. Our dinner at FIG was fantastic...all thanks to some great recommendations. The rest of the staff, while not quite as experienced as the innkeeper, was very polite and efficient. They knew some of the newer spots around town. The afternoon tea service was of the highest quality with some of the best canapés I've had, and the wine was also quite good compared to what I have had elsewhere. Honestly, I wish I could live at the Governor's House Inn as I've never felt so welcome!
