It is very difficult choosing hotels from websites and using trip advisor and often the reality does not match up with the photographs. On this occasion I have to say that this hotel exceeded all our expectations and that it looks even nicer in the flesh. From the moment we were greeted in our cars until our departure the service...

The Wentworth Mansion is committed to providing each guest with an unforgettable, top notch experience. We are glad that this mission was accomplished and your expectations were exceeded. I appreciate your feedback about the hotel's overall value. We feel it is very important to extend complimentary amenities - like gourmet breakfast and free parking - without additional fees. Our team...

My husband and I stayed at the Wentworth Mansion for two nights and before we even checked out I was already calling and recommending it to friends. Our room was really large, and the bathroom was surprisingly big as well. The fridge was stocked with sodas and water which were complimentary. Nice touch! The walk to the main shopping street...

A little off the beaten track about five blocks into the residential section of Charleston, but the short walk is worth it. Formerly a private residence, the mansion makes you feel like a visitor in someone's spectacular house, rather than a hotel guest. Wine and cheese in the parlor in late afternoons, and either a big breakfast (included) in the...

From the moment we walked in the door to the time we parted, my wife and I felt like we were royalty. The house was beautiful and the service was great. We never felt rushed and we always felt cared for. Our first night's meal was at Circa 1886 and what a treat. The food presentation was great and the...

Our stay was very short, but my wife and I loved the Wentworth Mansion. The staff was attentive and took care of everything we could desire while being friendly and not-at-all intrusive. The mansion itself was beautiful. Our room was comfortable and the amenities were top-notch. Wine and hors d'ouerves and breakfast proved the restaurant is equally fabulous. We will...

We've been fortunate to stay at many of the worlds best and Wentworth is definitely at the top of that pyramid. Think of Ritz Paris, yet smaller, with better service.....its that good.....which is why T&L gives it #1 for service worldwide.

What an incredible building! The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room, #12, was perfection. Beautiful décor, comfortable bed, luxurious linens, spa amenities, the softest towel I've ever used, and really spacious.

I think our expectations were too high. Having read all the hype (T&L Best Hotel, every award imaginable, etc), I'm not sure it could have lived up to our expectations.
