Great downtown, historic, convenient location

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Everything! The room itself we loved. The breakfasts were served at scheduled time, and the food was delicious. The location was excellent.
Cons: Directions to the parking lot need to be furnished to guests prior to checking-in. The parking lot behind the hotel is accessed by a one-way street.
Location: The hotel is within walking distance to numerous attractions. It is one block away from the Corner of Four Laws. It is near many good places to eat.
The house was wonderful! Our room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. We absolutely loved it!

Great mix of antiques and modern comfort

Posted Jul 26, 2014
Pros: The inn was located in the center of Charleston. Our room was in a rear cottage which made the experience more historical.
Cons: The parlor sherry offerings could be presented a bit better. The decanters looked neglected.
The hotel was very centrally located and yet the room was quiet. The main house is an antique gem with elegant yet comfortable furnishings. The staff was courteous, not stuffy.

Great Place to Stay

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Location, Price, Service.
Cons: Nothing, absolutely perfect.
The house is a real treat being fully restored from the time of the American Revolution. Minute walks to all the great sites or take a pedi-cab around downtown. The service and staff were 5 star. Breakfast every morning included with your stay and can be had in your room, the ballroom, or the outside patio. Afternoon iced tea with amazing appetizers. Also an evening night cap of port is included. It truly was sad when we had to say goodbye but we will definitely be staying here next time we are in town.

One of Charleston's Best!

Posted May 19, 2014
Pros: Our room was lovely, as was the Mansion itself, and eating breakfast outside in the Courtyard between the two cottages and the big house was special.
Cons: Nothing - it was perfect.
Location: The free trolley stop was only a short walk away, as well as several outstanding restaurants, the Old Exchange Provost/Dungeon.
We stayed 4 nights in an Ashley Cottage Room behind the historic Mansion while touring the city, nearby plantations, and Ft. Sumter.

Beautiful Historical House. Terrible B&B!

Posted May 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
Interior room (which we saw by accident) was beautiful. Carriage House (where we stayed) was greatly overpriced and one step up froma motel. . Scraps served as Afternoon Tea. Had to request serving utensils, knives and forks, and glasses for the warm lemonade and tea. No dining room. Parlor which was the only place to congregate in the house was unimpressive. Breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs or french toast. The type served at a diner. Instead, we ate in the garden (?) surrounded by dirty dishes at all other tables. Instead of being disappointed, drive an hour and a half down the back roads to Savannah and enjoy a beautiful stay in a REALl historic B&B.

A Wonderful Stay

Posted May 11, 2014 on Hotels.com
The John Rutledge House Inn was a wonderful place to stay during our first (but definitely not our last) visit to Charleston. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful in every respect. The Inn provides complimentary breakfast each morning (which was very good) and afternoon tea & snacks in the early evening. Bottled water was also provided free of charge (which was very helpful since it was in the low 90's in Charleston throughout our stay). The house is beautiful and its location was within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. We will definitely stay here again!

Charming Inn

Posted Apr 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
Charming Inn, good service, wonderful location. Just beware that there is no elevator and so if you do not have a room in one of the carriage houses on the ground floor, there will be many stairs to climb. This proved a challenge for my elderly mother.
