Everyone at 15 Church Street was wonderfully welcoming. The room had its own fireplace that we used a few nights when it was cold. It was very clean, and the location couldn't have been better. It's right in the historic district, a stone's throw from the battery, down a quiet brick lane. Just an amazing time, with lovely people. The evening happy hour was a highlight. We were welcomed like family, and there was lovely wine and little snacks to eat. Nice breakfast too!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Now the home of Dr. & Mrs. Jack W. Simmons, Jr., the property was originally owned by Captain Timothy Phillips during the Revolution. The Yates family constructed the present house in the early 1840’s and it served as a hospital during the Civil War during which time it was struck by four cannonballs, two of which are now mounted on the gate posts. It is notable for its Adam style paneling by Thomas Pinckney and ironwork by Charleston ironwright, Philip Simmons, his most recent addition (1998) being the basement gate at the front. The Earthquake of 1886 leveled the 4th story, which was rebuilt with a Mansard roof. Subsequent to this, the structure was reinforced with "earthquake rods", bolts running through the house between the exterior walls. Almost 100 years later, in bringing the structure up to code, this same technology was used with the addition of nine more bolts. (Rates: $225.00-325.00) ... more less
