Recent guest reviews

We stayed in a lovely suite that hosted three people.The bedroom had a gorgeous fireplace and the extra room ( sunroom with pull out sofa bed) was very comfortable to sleep and relax during the day. Beautiful windows overlooking the garden and trees. Breakfast was delicious and they even went out of their way to serve us breakfast outside one morning per my mothers wish! It was the highlight of our trip to Charleston

We stayed here for 5 nights in May. What an amazing place! It is absolutely stunning! the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and all the extras you get are really great. We stayed in a mansion room which was large and very comfortable. We found the short walk to the historic to be fine and there are lots of lovely restaurants nearby. Charleston is such a beautiful city, I hope we will return next year and if we do we will definitely stay here, I really didn't want to leave!

From when we were greeted at the door until we checked out we were treated like royalty. No detail was to small nor request to difficult. The staff is great and willing to go that extra mile . For example we arrived back at the hotel after a day out. My wife had an ice cream cone that was melting. before we got to the front door a staff member was handing my wife a cup and napkins. The rooms are large and airy and beautifully decorated.

We stayed with these folks 5/29,30 and 6/1. Everything about it was fabulous. Trevon, Michael and Laurie should ask for a raise, they're well worth it and I'd give it to them; all their staff were professional and helpful.

What can we add to the accolades already written by others? This stunningly restored landmark offered us a most special home base during our extended weekend stay in Charleston. The staff were uniformly warm, welcoming and always helpful. Our accommodations were charming and absolutely comfortable. Food, both breakfast and dinner, was exceptional. We are experienced travelers and the Wentworth gets our unqualified endorsement. Thanks to all for a most memorable stay.

My husband and I just visited the Wentworth Mansion for 5 nights! The architecture of the Old South has been preserved in this lovely hotel. And the personnel was so attentive to us and our needs that we felt pampered and special. We hated to leave and plan on going back again! It was definitely a piece of heaven being there and would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a wonderful experience.

Super. Absolutely wonderful. Wentworth staff were superb, helpful, friendly, quick. The first night there was a bottle of champagne on ice in our room. So sweet. They gave us their best picks for what to do for our 3 days there, perfect. Middleton plantation, a private carriage ride, 2sisters walking tour, Mcradys tavern was awesome for dinner. Circa 1883 restaurant at the Wentworth was wonderful for breakfast. Should have had dinner there, instead Had dinner at Hanks seafood C- Raw grouper yuck Loved Charleston. ❤️

I absolutely LOVED this hotel. Quaint and luxurious. The room was enormous with a fireplace and two person hot tub. The breakfast included at Circa 1888 was delicious and the staff was professional and welcoming. If you can afford it - STAY here - you won't regret it. It's walkable to just about everything we wanted. We were just passing though so we only stayed one night - we most definitely will be back.

We loved our stay at the Wentworth mansion. While it is pricey, the room is incredibly unique, spacious, and the service is amazing. We loved our fireplace, great size bathroom, and nice touches for guests (wine hour, games, DVDs, etc). We also thought the breakfast was excellent. Things are pretty walkable from there and they have a great parking area that is easy to access.

We were married in Charleston on May 17, 2017 and decided to go with a different type of hotel experience than usual. I am a Four Seasons/Ritz Carlton type of girl, so I was a little hesitant about booking a smaller boutique hotel. I was very impressed with the service! As soon as we pulled in the parking lot, a lady escorted us inside to get checked in. They were so gracious to allow me to have my wedding band to be shipped to them from the the jeweler & kept in the safe the day before we arrived. Butler was awesome in helping us with recommendations and a car service. Trayvon was amazing! Such a nice guy and always willing to go above and beyond! All of the staff we had encounters with were top notch! The service is not lacking here in the least bit! The grounds are beautiful. The room was beautiful. Loved the oversized tub with jets and the double headed shower. However, I feel compelled to complain about the bed. I could tell it was sagging on both sides before we ever pulled the covers back. This is our third night and I'm awake because my back is killing me from this terrible mattress. We did not sleep well the past two nights. For $500-600 a night, you would think they could afford to replace the mattress. Honestly, it was so bad we wanted to just go home today, but hated to lose the money we paid, so we stayed. I really hate to give 4 stars when the staff and everything else was so nice, but the bed is an essential part of any hotel stay, and this bed was probably the worst hotel bed I have ever slept on. :/ I saw other reviews regarding the mattresses too, so obviously it is an issue. It's a simple fix, so maybe they can get it resolved for future guests. I haven't told them yet, but will mention it before we leave tomorrow.
