This old, former home of a Charleston grandee is a rare--if not exactly unique--hotel. The house is grand, fine, lovely, opulent. The woodwork, the ironwork, the floors, thee bedrooms are all splendid. The ambience is refined, courtly, perhaps, old-fashioned. Now if you want a sleek room with a gym downstairs and a pool, this is not your place. But if you want to live like an old-time aristocrat for a night or two, this is the place for you.

Pros: Everything. It was like visiting friends rather than staying in a commercial property. The gas fireplaces in every guest room are a real plus.
Cons: Not a thing.
Location: It's Charleston. Everything is nearby.
Off street parking in a beautifully landscaped courtyard. The restaurant in the former stables is lovely and has excellent food. The mansion is beautifully appointed and well maintained. The staff are all top notch. This property is a real gem in an historic city full of beautiful homes and non-stop charm.

Pros: Many things, but the staff really stood out as the best part. Very friendly, helpful, and attentive.
Cons: Really nothing.
Location: Located right next to the College of Charleston, it is in a perfect spot to walk around town.
I had high hopes for this hotel based upon both Expedia and Trip Advisor reviews. It exceeded expectations . I will return every time I'm in Charleston. Elegant and friendly.

Pros: Just about everything, specially one of the best restaurants in the world, Circa 1886.
Cons: The price, a little les expensive.
Location: Everything Charleston has to offer. History, shopping sightseeing.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in this magnificent mansion. A bit weathered by time, it has a very focused staff, from the reception to the extras, like: wine and d'oeuvres at 5pm, after dinner drinks and a superbly elegant breakfast, all complimentary. It is a wonderful experience with an elegant sense of history.
