We spent the weekend here for my wife's birthday. Couldn't have picked a better place. Beautifully restored mansion within a few blocks of the heart of historic Charleston. Everything was perfect...room, restaurant, people, weather. Our room (#5) was originally the dining room of the mansion. It was spacious with a huge bay window and modern bathroom. Although it was adjacent... More

Thank you for the thoughtful review - and for treating your wife to a birthday celebration in Charleston. Sipping a drink on the cupola, dining at Circa 1886 and meeting Miss Betty at breakfast... you certainly enjoyed a true Wentworth Mansion experience. We look forward to hosting you both again. Many thanks for the kind words. Sincerely, Richard Widman, Proprietor More

I reviewed quite a few inns prior to choosing the Wentworth and I am happy to say I believe we chose the best inn for our anniversary weekend.

My family and I stayed there August 2013. We have three kids and usually these boutique type hotels aren't all that kid friendly. Not the Wentworth. The staff there indulged my children's every whim.

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.

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...
