“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2011

My husband and I stayed here for our (rather belated) honeymoon, and it was absolutely amazing. Charleston is a wonderful city, and Two Meeting Street is THE place to stay; especially if you are looking for someplace welcoming, cozy, romantic, and absolutely beautiful.

We stayed in December, and the Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas; we were absolutely blown away when we drove up. In addition, the staff made sure we were absolutely pampered from the moment we walked in the door until after we had checked out! When we first walked in the door, we were astonished not only by the beauty of the Inn, but also the friendliness of the staff, who immediately offered us something to drink, and gave us a tour of the Inn. Seeing as it was chilly outside, we opted for the mulled cider with wine, and it was fantastic!

It rained the second day of our trip, but this was no problem, as the staff had already made it a point to show us where the umbrellas were, so we each grabbed an umbrella and we were off! We made certain to get back to the Inn in time for tea, and were not disappointed in the least! Incidentally, the first night we were there, we called to let them know we would be checking in a little bit late, and they extended their afternoon tea so that we would have some goodies to eat when we got in.

Additionally, my husband arranged for flowers, champagne, and sweets to be in our room on the second night - the sweets dish was quite generous, and included white chocolate fudge, chocolate sherry bars, and chocolate covered strawberries.

The people at Two Meeting Street could not have been more helpful, friendly, or welcoming - we were absolutely blown away by the service, and the eagerness to help us and make sure our stay was perfect. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, and look forward to staying again in the future!

The only thing to note is that the parking is not off-street - but if you park on the side of the street that lines the park, it is free and unlimited in duration. This isn't a complaint, just an fyi for those lucky enough to be staying at the Inn! :)

I have been to many B&Bs, but Two Meeting Street Inn will be on the top of my list. The staff was wonderful. They made you feel right at home in this magnificent Inn. From the morning breakfast to afternoon tea and cake on the front porch. What a delight! We stayed in the Carrington Room which was very beautiful and comfortable. We loved the city of Charleston. So many great restaurants, grand old house's and nice people.

Room Tip: We loved the Carrington Room. On the second floor. Comfort and Charming.

I have stayed here two times. It is expensive but absolutely wonderful. The afternoon tea and breakfast were marvelous, no complaints. The staff go beyond the norm to make sure you are comfortable and happy. They were happy to book tours and make reservations for us. The private balcony is so nice for early breakfast or evening drink. You can see the battery as inn is across the street from battery park, it was so nice to walk in the park late in the evening..Very safe location also. We had no problems..a wonderful stay. Beautiful grounds and Inn.

Room Tip: The last time we stayed in the Spell room...much larger than the Carr Room..both share the balcony.

Just look at the pictures on the website and imagine that you are staying there! Everything about the experience feels as if you are in someone's beautiful home, right down to the decanter of sherry set with glasses all around it in the dining room. The house was built in the 1880's as a wedding present from the bride's father. Five years later, she received some Tiffany glass stained windows as an anniversary present. Much of the furniture is original and all of it is elegant, yet you are encouraged to "make yourself at home" amidst all the antiques. We stayed in the Queen Anne Room because I was with my daughter and it was the only one with two beds. Not only was it gorgeous, it was incredibly comfortable. Sitting on the veranda for breakfast or tea or just to read a book or rock in a rocking chair is wonderful. Watching other folks doing just that on my last trip to Charleston was the reason I stayed there this time. I wasn't disappointed in any way. It was pricey but well worth it. The staff was great, providing everything from offering you a peach iced tea or lemonade to making excellent tour and restaurant recommendations.

Room Tip: Two rooms with 2nd floor porch or Queen Anne Room

Think about staying with your very favorite relative and how much you enjoy seeing them and staying in their beautiful home. That's what you get when you stay at Two Meeting Street! The location is unsurpassed relaxation and beauty. This place is filled with the history of what was in the late 17th and early 18th century the premier city in the colonies, with the view of Fort Sumpter, and a house that speaks of style and grace.

Jean and Pete Spell and their daughter Karen have made this inn a place to which we look forward every year, and year after year we come back to experience the best that Charleston has to offer. Every single room is appointed with wonderful furniture, decorations that make you feel special, and colors that relax you every minute. At tea time every day (4:30) and at breakfast, you get real home-made delicacies and can meet people from around the globe who come to this inn year after year.

Don't miss Two Meeting Street!!!!

Room Tip: Call very early when planning a trip.

There is no end of superlatives for Two Meeting Street Inn. It has to be Charleston's finest inn, and is absolutely the finest these experienced B&Bers have stayed at anywhere. The location is ideal -- at the foot of Meeting Street in the historic residential district across from Battery Park overlooking Charleston harbor and Fort Sumter, and only a few easily walked mansion-lined blocks to downtown with its outstanding restaurants and fascinating historical buildings dating to the Revolutionary period. The inn itself is stunning -- gorgeous in every detail, lovingly restored, beautifully decorated and meticulously maintained. The service is perfect -- the entire staff so much reflects that renowned Southern hospitality that we find it impossible to single out anyone for our extra thanks. They're all terrific, extremely gracious and very helpful with restaurant and sightseeing suggestions. A delicious full breakfast of distinctive regional favorites is served in the lovely dining room or outside on the porch or in a private corner of the stunning azalea-filled garden. Afternoon tea (or wine) is served on the porch, and shouldn't be missed for its "sweet and savory" treats. Rooms on the first and second floors are suitably elegant and a must for your special occasion. We were on an extended and expensive vacation trip, however, and throughly enjoyed the somewhat less grand Canton Room on the third floor. If you're going to Charleston, one of the nation's great cities, we highly recommend staying at Two Meeting Street Inn, one of the nation's great inns.

Room Tip: Choose by rates. You can't go wrong.

A seaside retreat. The staff worked seemlessly to accomodate this demanding Cali girl and her Rhodesian mate. Some requests are expected like bikes to tour the town since a car is a nuisance but to have bubbles in the bath and savory snacks at midnight are unexpected yet both were received and catered to elegantly. Thanks so much to the staff for their professional and personal approach. Peach nectar and sausage wellington for breakfast is the best thing in the south. The green anoles in the garden keep the bugs down and the entertainment up. Don't miss this one.

Room Tip: They are all great. We stayed in 3 for our 4 d sty
