Yeah it's off the beaten path... about a 10 minute walk to King Street... So I do not recommend this hotel to people for their first visit to Charleston... but for my wife and I, it's our choice... We met in Charleston and I used to live two blocks from the mansion, so the location has a soft spot for...

Thank you to the Wentworth for welcoming our pets! This hotel is spacious with comfortable beds and in a great location. The staff is warm, welcoming, and accommodating with top notch service. Wonderful made to order breakfast included, as well as parking, internet, and afternoon wine. Sodas and water in the room also a nice touch, along with evening turn...

A simply charming, lovely hotel located just a few blocks from King Street. Beautiful grounds, a warm, welcoming staff and large, beautiful guest rooms. Many of the rooms have balconies, most have lovely sitting areas and very comfortable beds (great pillows!).

We stayed there one night. It was a gift from our children. What a grand mansion and the service was perfect. We stayed in room #6 which was on the first floor and had a private porch. We were close to the Happy Hour wine and appetizers and also the morning coffee and delicious pastries which are baked fresh everyday...

I chose Wentworth Mansion because my wife and her dog are inseparable, but will happily choose it again even if our dog does not accompany us on our next trip to Charleston.

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...

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

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. The hotel is so rich in history and architecture, it would be worth visiting even if the service wasn't good. But the service is great. For...
