I stayed in the Wentworth mansion for a few days during the week - it is now officially one of my favorite places on the planet. I stayed in a Mansion Room - it was enormous, had a huge sleeping area and two additional sitting/lounging areas. I really wanted a fireplace and made good use of it during my time... More

Very enjoyable, we felt very comfortable and very well taken care of. 1 mile or so away from the downtown, so very quiet. Excellent free breakfast, and very good wine and appetizers for happy hour. Expensive, and not good if you are value conscious.

The Wentworth Mansion checks all the travel boxes: beautiful rooms, superior service, wonderful food both at the wine tasting and in the amazing restaurant Circa 1886 and a lovely spa experience.

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...
