We only stayed one night at the Wentworth Mansion, but we will return on our next trip. The inn is well maintained and its history adds to the air of elegance and romance. We stayed in room 402 just at the bottom of the spiral staircase that leads you up to the rooftop cupola. It was lovely with a fireplace...

I would add "friendly" to all the wonderful things that Wentworth Mansion is. They accommodated my 4 non-staying friends at afternoon hors d'oeuvres and breakfast (with advance notice and for a very reasonable extra charge), the bellman was a doll, the front staff was ever-attentive, and having free Diet Cokes available in my room each afternoon when I returned hot...

My partner and I just returned from a visit to the Charleston area. We own a large pre-civil war home that we restored and opened as an Inn in Asheville NC, and wanted to do a quick getaway before the busy "leaf season" starts up. We chose Wentorth Mansion due to the similarities it shared with our property (The Reynolds...

in every way. From the property, grounds... to the room, all beautiful. Great service from everyone we dealt with. Easy walking distance to the market. Couldn't recommend it more highly. Bravo. No work out facility, but they have a relationship with a gym a few blocks away.

It is very difficult choosing hotels from websites and using trip advisor and often the reality does not match up with the photographs. On this occasion I have to say that this hotel exceeded all our expectations and that it looks even nicer in the flesh. From the moment we were greeted in our cars until our departure the service...

My husband and I stayed at the Wentworth Mansion for two nights and before we even checked out I was already calling and recommending it to friends. Our room was really large, and the bathroom was surprisingly big as well. The fridge was stocked with sodas and water which were complimentary. Nice touch! The walk to the main shopping street...

A little off the beaten track about five blocks into the residential section of Charleston, but the short walk is worth it. Formerly a private residence, the mansion makes you feel like a visitor in someone's spectacular house, rather than a hotel guest. Wine and cheese in the parlor in late afternoons, and either a big breakfast (included) in the...

From the moment we walked in the door to the time we parted, my wife and I felt like we were royalty. The house was beautiful and the service was great.

Our stay was very short, but my wife and I loved the Wentworth Mansion. The staff was attentive and took care of everything we could desire while being friendly and not-at-all intrusive.

We've been fortunate to stay at many of the worlds best and Wentworth is definitely at the top of that pyramid.
