A finely decorated room, the sea-salted breeze of air floating through open windows, and the calming sights of a charming city from your hotel room… You can experience all of this and more at the Wentworth Mansion in Charleston, South Carolina.
Constructed in 1886, The Wentworth Mansion offers a one-of-a-kind historic boutique hotel experience to Charleston visitors. The Tiffany-stained glass windows, hand-carved marble fireplaces, intricate woodwork, and custom crystal chandeliers contribute to the beauty, prestige and vibrancy of the hotel’s interiors, while the many amenities that the hotel offers ensure that the only thing on each guest’s mind is… nothing at all.
Each morning, a full complimentary breakfast is presented for each guest to enjoy, and access to drinks, afternoon wine, and hors d’oeuvres in the Mansion’s lobby is offered throughout the day and into the evening. If spirits and hors d’oeuvres aren’t enough to satisfy you, the Wentworth Mansion’s restaurant, aptly named Circa 1886, will surely. Inspired by classic Southern dishes, Circa 1886 creates and maintains the fresh, bold flavors of Southern cuisines while cooking with healthy ingredients that make each meal worth while. Their seasonal menus, which include dishes such as Piedmontese Beef, Coconut Crab Cakes, and Chicken Fried Salmon, combined with the vintage atmosphere of the Wentworth Mansion’s remodeled carriage house is sure to transport each guest back to in time.
Located in Charleston’s charming Downtown District, the Wentworth Mansion offers exceptional access to the many shops, eateries, and sights that Charleston has to offer. If you’re looking for great food in close proximities, Husk and Ted’s Butcherblock are both less than a ten minute driving distance from the Wentworth Mansion. Try the wagyu beef panini at Ted’s Butcherblock, and the confit duck leg with glazed pole beans and turnips at Husk.
To experience the beauty of historic Charleston, embark on an Old South carriage ride around the city, or tour the city’s many historical sites to hear the local legends, history, and lore. Following the carriage ride or site tour, set sail on the Shooner Pride boat to witness the glorious sunset on a South Carolina sea. After you dock, take a walk on the moonlit sands of any one of Charleston’s five beaches; on your way back to the Wentworth, make sure to stop by the many antique King Street shops, boutiques, and avenues for nightlife.
The Wentworth Mansion is one of Charleston’s many historical gems, and the hotel’s dedication to guest service and satisfaction, distinguished and luxurious decor, and the proximity to the best shops, restaurants, and sites Charleston offers makes it the perfect getaway for anyone looking to travel, vacation, or just relax.
