Our recent stay at the Wentworth Mansion exceeded our expectations. The house is extraordinary. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room was spacious, beautiful and comfortable. And you will not go hungry. Wine and appetizers are served in the late afternoon- and these were not the typical blocks of cheese and piles or crackers. We had delicious egg...

The Wentworth is not only conveniently located in downtown Charleston, it provides a thoroughly delightful experience. The staff could not be better. Our room, on the second floor, was huge, and was easily one of the most enjoyable rooms I have ever had. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the included afternoon hors d'oeuvres and wine, as well as the...

We took advantage of their babymoon package over the Thanksgiving Holiday and everything was perfect. If you want personalized service this is the place to be. Great location - easy walk to the main shopping area but away from the hustle and bustle for a true getaway feeling. From booking to checkout they went the extra mile - arranging tours,...

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Wentworth Mansion and didn't want to leave. The staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast in the restaurant was top notch, and our room was beautiful and unique. We felt pampered the whole time we there.

I chose the Wentworth because it is a pet friendly, historic property. I will return because it is the finest example of southern hospitality that I have ever experienced. My garden room was spacious and well furnished. The amenities certainly didn't disappoint as is evidenced by other reviewers' descriptions. The food was fabulous and well presented. However, the staff are...

Our stay at Wentworth Mansion exceeded our high expectations, made so by the wonderful staff and the exquisite attention to detail. Dillon met us at the front door and immediately made us feel at home. He showed us to our room (#15) and were immediately taken by the luxury and decor. Then Cason, our concierge helped us plan our days...

We visited in early October ... had to cut short our stay by one night because the hotel closed due to Hurricane Matthew, but the approaching storm didn't dampen our enthusiasm for this unique property in a very interesting city. We were greeted upon arrival by Trayvon, a bubbling bundle of infectious enthusiasm who oriented us to the property with...

I'm not sure what we can add that the other extremely satisfied guests have provided - perhaps that the Wentworth Mansion is pet friendly. We recently stayed for 3 nights in room # 1 - a garden room and our little dog Neemo had a grand time. Beyond having a palatial bathroom and its own sitting room (with TV -...

Incredible from beginning to end. The staff was wonderful, knowledgeable, and made the stay personable. We were greeted with a hand written welcome note and staff left a signed card wishing us a happy anniversary. Circa 1886 even presented us with happy anniversary menus. The room was spacious, warm and inviting. The location was central, and parking in the private...
