Beautiful property close to sites. Unfortunately a few days before arriving they had a water leak in main building so didn’t get to see that . Breakfast was sub par need to make a in house breakfast buffet or find a better venue for that . Could also used some blackout curtains in rooms for the room we were in was still bright at night . But we will give it another try on our next trip there

The property is a magnificent old mansion fronting on a park on Charleston Bay, a great and beautiful location. However, the majority of the building was under construction. The staff was very pleasant and attentive when they were around, but they were always somewhere else other than the public areas. Plumbing was a problem in the shower, where the drain was exceptionally slow. We enjoyed the stay but it will be so much better when renovations are complete.

The staff was super friendly and attentive to our every need we absolutely loved the property and our room. We got to briefly meet the owner Jack Schaffer who was very pleasant. The history and the work that he has done to the house or mansion I should say is amazing!

Everything about this place is phenomenal! We broke up our stay in several locations, but i really wish we had just came here for the entirety. Abby and her trainee were above and beyond...with their hospitality and knowledge of Charleston, the mansion and everything in it. It was like staying in a living museum. Ive already started recommending 20 Battery to friends and family

Simply one of the most memorable and enjoyable hotel stays we've had, anywhere. A breathtaking, beautifully restored and immaculate property and gorgeously manicured grounds, lush antique furnishings and impeccable details throughout the buildings...and we've really missed the wonderful bed since we've returned home. So much to rave about - however, the staff made our stay truly remarkable...Abby, Ryan and Susan treated us so well throughout our stay. If we can't book our next stay here, we won't go to Charleston.
