The staff is very knowledgeable and ready to help. The breakfasts are amazing, served on the porch or in the dining room.Thank you Terrance! The grounds are charming and there is...

What a wonderful stay at The Governor's House Inn! My husband and I stayed in the Middleton Suit and were just floored with its beauty and quaintness. The view from veranda attached to the room was spectacular, each day we sat there and enjoyed listening to the world going on around us. The Inn was located walking distance to all...

The Governor's House is a fantastic B&B situated on Broad Street in Charleston. The breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. Afternoon wine was also spectacular especially when taken out on the porch. The staff here was very accommodating and helpful. We stayed in The Lauren's Room and we were very comfortable. We will return.

Great location for a visit to Charleston, right in between the main shopping district, the key restaurant area (East Bay Street) and the area with the antebellum houses. Great location to experience southern antebellum life as it must have been : great and nicely decorated rooms with a zillion paintings, fine furniture and delicately chosen decorations. Do not forget taking...

Thank you for the kind review. We are a unique property in a great location. The only place you can sleep where the youngest signer of the declaration of independence once lived. Hope you return soon. Bryan

Absolute PERFECTION! From the moment Terrance warmly greeted us on the side porch of The Governor's House Inn and invited us to take a breath, relax and give ourselves permission to enjoy ourselves, to the good-bye hugs we received from Terrance and Ben in the beautiful courtyard, our stay at GHI could not have been any more wonderful.

This is second time we stayed at this property. Although the first stay was nice, the second time was outstanding. Several specific points: -the staff is friendly and attentive. Starts with Terrance.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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. ... more   less

“You really can't go wrong with any of the rooms. They also have a carriage house in the back that I believe contains suites.”

“No windows in downstairs suites; porch is below ground level. Upper floors afford views of the surrounding area.”
