Hotel Description

The historic district of downtown Charleston, South Carolina is Old South elegance at its most refined, and when the Wentworth Mansion was built in 1886 it was among the grandest residences in town. Now this 1886 classic, built in a red-brick French revival style—tower, fleurs-de-lys, mansard roof and all—is back to its former glory, thoroughly renovated and converted into an elegant and deceptively small boutique hotel.

It’s luxury through and through, with king-sized beds in the seventeen guest rooms, and period-correct antique and reproduction furniture throughout. Fine wood inlays, crystal chandeliers, polished marble, even a bit of stained glass here and there — it’s as close to the 19th century as you can get and still have wireless internet and a whirlpool bath.

Wine and cheese are served in the parlor, and a European-style breakfast on the sun porch, open to the breeze. The restaurant, Circa 1886, is an upscale local favorite, a high point in a town that’s quietly asserting itself as something of a culinary center. There’s a spa hidden away in there somewhere, complete with a double-sized couples treatment room, and when it’s time to go out, the Wentworth’s very capable concierge is on duty round the clock.
