The location, Inn and staff are excellent. Convenient to all downtown, quaint and surprisingly quiet considering the downtown location. The staff is exceptional and the breakfast is a treat in itself. I wish they cooked lunch and dinner!!

About
Description
The Governor's House Inn offers the rare pleasures, aristocratic comforts and romantic grandeur of a pre-revolutionary National Landmark. We are the only inn in America where you can sleep where a signer of ...More the Declaration of Independence once lived. With magnificent drawing rooms, boudoir staterooms, and expansive veranda porches, it is no wonder that the former Governor's mansion was proclaimed the most glamorous of Charleston inns by Travel Holiday.

There is one bedroom on the main level just off of the dining room. It is known as the Wagner Room and you may see pictures on the Inn's website.
