We spent three restful nights at the Wentworth Mansion and would definitely come back to WM should our travels bring us back to Charleston. Service all around was very friendly and helpful. My hubby and I are walkers and found the location of WM to be conducive to having a pleasant walk to all the wonderful shops, restaurants and historic sites on King St. Meeting St. etc. Our room, #9, was spacious and full of charm. We love old historic homes and just felt at home with all the woodwork. This room also had a fireplace and sunroom which was just great for relaxing after a long day of walking about. WM offers afternoon appetizers and wine in their main parlor and sunroom, we had the pleasure of meeting some very nice people during that time. All around a great experience.

We spent Thanksgiving in Charleston and my family stayed at the Wentworth Mansion. It was fabulous! It really shows off Charleston's southern hospitality. Every person we encountered there was friendly and helpful. Our room was incredible and it was nice to be able to accommodate our son. I'd highly recommend staying here when visiting Charleston.

We've stayed in this great mansion just for 3 nights but it was really unforgettable. Cosy and warm rooms, friendly staff, comfortable common areas were great. Neighbourhood is literally peaceful. The King Street is not far and walking to the center is easy. Thanks for everything.

Beautifully manicured with the best Charleston charm and hospitality! The minute I walk in and graciously welcomed by Michael...a doll! The entrance is elegant and the mansion is just impressive. We missed the "happy hour" by 15-20 minutes; although there were still guest in the sunroom enjoying the great hors d'oeuvres and wine, we were not offered to join them so we went directly to our room to get ready to go on a walk and find a place to have dinner. This was part of our three states stop before heading back to FL. The experience was just excellent, the staff was extremely friendly, and the service unparalleled. I booked the garden room as I thought there was no elevator ( I read in the website that there were no elevators in the floors where the rooms I was looking to book were located); although I did not have the higher floor room; my room was impressive... with a working fireplace and very well appointed with the luxurious things you would expect for a hotel of this caliber. From the soft robes(just missing the slippers) to the room amenities(mmm...those chocolates at turndown service)...this last stop on our three states road trip exceeded my expectations. I feel I did not spend enough time in this beautiful setting. This beautiful location and charming town was lovely. The meals were excellent, Anastasia, our super friendly server for all our morning breakfasts was just a delight; she was really service oriented and greeted us every morning with a beautiful smile. Although we were not fortunate to have dinner at the mansion's restaurant (first night it was booked, then the second night was reserved for a private event) Michael went out of his way to accommodate us in another restaurant in town. The first night, we just walked and found a local restaurant to try the wonderful soul food of Charleston and then we went ahead with Michael's recommendation for the rest. Every single restaurant had the charm we read so much about this town as well as the great hospitality! Everywhere I went was excellent...The tour guide I had, William from Oyster Point Tours was great, he was passionate, fun and extremely knowledgeable. The best tour I had while in town. The carriage tour guide was not as exciting as the walking tour, I did not feel the tour guide was really "in tune" with the town history and missed a lot of important points on the great history of this town. But the ride was lovely, just felt a little concerned about poor O'Mally having to carry over 2,000 pounds... I just have to say...on my next trip to South Carolina; the Wentworth Mansion is where I want to stay. Actually, if I could just "Move In tomorrow"...I will drop everything and do so. I was very impressed with the charm and history of this cute town and my wonderful stay at the Mansion! Not to forget the awesome views from the cupola!!!The best views in this town are definitely from there. This great lodging deserves a 5+, great location, secure, glorious views, well appointed rooms, ambiance, superb meals and excellence in service. I cannot wait to return! Great place Mr. Widman!!! I am grateful for their hospitality!

My husband and I spent three nights at the Mansion. Our room was quiet and felt secluded. We had a small patio where we enjoyed a glass of wine on our first night. I appreciated that they provided wine glasses and a wine opener in the room without having to request them. The location was perfect. It was far enough away from the noise and bustle of downtown, but was an easy, safe walk to get there. The breakfasts were impressive. The shrimp and grits were the best I had anywhere during our stay. The concierges were helpful and friendly. And, the wine hour was a nice break during the day.

This was by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many luxury hotels,the staff are incredibly attentive and cater for your every need.It was like stepping back in time in this beautiful boutique hotel,the room was very spacious and beautifully decorated.We especially enjoyed the thoughtful touches i.e.champagne and candles in our room on our return from our evening meal on our anniversary,the wine and hors d'oeuvres hour and the complimentary sherry,port and brandy on the sideboard.It is a lovely stroll through a pleasant neighbourhood to the centre of town. We would not hesitate to book this hotel and fully intend to return as soon as possible.

My husband and I stayed at the Wentworth Mansion for 5 nights to celebrate our anniversary. The mansion is beautiful and our room was spacious and original. You could definitely feel the sense of history when staying in the mansion which added to its charm and beauty. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and were always available to answer any questions we had. They acknowledged our anniversary when we arrived and even brought a bottle of champagne to our room which was a nice personal touch. We also ate dinner at the hotel restaurant our first night there. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Although we had a nice experience, there were some little touches that were missing to truly make this a 5 star hotel. The hotel offers turndown service which was inconsistent, with us only receiving it 3 of the 5 nights. The wifi was also extremely slow. The wine and hors d'oeuvre hour was very nice but they could have more of a selection of wine and food. The breakfast which was included was very good however the fruit was very skimpy and pastries were not freshly baked. We also had a couples massage at the spa. The experience was very average. The couples massage room is at the end of the building and we both were a little distracted by the noise from the cars outside. For a boutique hotel, we felt that the staff could have referred to us by name, as we have experienced in other small boutique type hotels. Little touches can really add to an experience, especially when staying at a small, quaint hotel like the Wentworth Mansion. We felt the staff really tried but when paying 5 star prices, we expect to get 5 star service. Overall, we had a great time and it was a very nice experience..

Outstanding service (Elliott, Dillon, Michael) with deep knowledge about Downtown Charleston and excellent suggestions. Highly recommend room #7 in the east wing, with a private balcony overlooking the garden and fireplace adjacent to bathtub.

Great service immediately upon checking in. We were shown around the mansion and then to our Mansion suite. The evening complementary hor d'oeuvre and wine was great. The room was also stocked with complementary water and soft drinks. Amazing breakfast at Circa 1886 included. If you get a chance, be sure to make reservations for dinner too. Short walk to Market Street and other great spots in downtown Charleston. We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed at this beautiful Mansion. Was contacted by the Mansion ahead of our visit and asked if there was anything they could help us with. After arriving, the staff were awesome. Michael, Tim and Lori (unsure of the spelling) were all great. The Mansion is beautiful and the rooms very nice. We were visiting for an anniversary and the staff delivered a bottle of Champagne which I felt was a very nice touch. Throughout our 4 nights there, we were never disappointed. We had breakfast at their restaurant, 1886 every morning and loved it. There really isn't a need to go elsewhere for breakfast especially since it is included with the stay. The Shrimp and Grits were delicious. The location is perfect with everything along King street and the market were very walkable. Will be returning without a doubt. If you want something a little different and like to be pampered. Wentworth Mansion is the place to stay.
