The Wentworth Mansion, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is a grand historic hotel in downtown Charleston. Nestled within a charming neighborhood in the Holy City’s historic district, it offers the best of one of the country’s most beloved cities – gracious hospitality, a luxury spa, a seasonally-inspired restaurant, and proximity to the antique district, King Street shops and boutiques, and nightlife.
Built by a cotton baron, this stately Victorian residence-turned-hotel pierced the city’s skyline long before its zoning board enacted height limits, affording spectacular views of the city’s steeple-pierced skyline from the mansion’s rooftop cupola. It is a place of hand-carved marble fireplaces, intricate woodwork, Tiffany stained glass windows and never-ending detail. Guests stroll through immaculate surroundings, unchanged since the days of the original owner, and sleep soundly in accommodations over a century old. It is, first and foremost, a residence. A residence of unparalleled drama and beauty, where hotel guests can unwind in the atmosphere they desire, surrounded by a gracious and hospitable staff.
Enjoy complimentary breakfast on a sunny porch, or evening sherry and hors d’oeuvres in the darkly paneled parlor by a roaring fireplace. The recently renovated restaurant in the carriage house out back, Circa 1886, ranks as one of Charleston’s finest dining venues, so you won’t have to walk far for a good meal.
The Rodgers Library provides the perfect atmosphere for reading, enjoying our complimentary cordials, or drafting a letter to a friend. Originally the Mansion’s stables,the hotel’s spa provides everything you need to rejuvenate and replenish amid the 14-foot vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and rustic beauty.
