If you’ve visited the Wentworth Mansion any time during the last four years, you’ll recognize the face behind our front desk, Mr. Christian Self.
And here he is again, left hand corner, helping out at the Wentworth Mansion’s spring photo shoot:
Christian began his stint at the Wentworth Mansion as a bellman in 2008. Time progressed, and with a promotion to lead concierge at our luxury inn, Christian’s career progressed as well. Now, it is with emotions both happy and sad that we announce Christian is leaving the Mansion and trading the Holy City for the Windy City. He’ll be a smashing success on the Chicago stage as he pursues his dream of becoming an actor. It will only be a matter of time until Christian lands his dream gig- a role in a sketch comedy.
On an almost daily basis, guest comments and TripAdvisor reviews sing Christian’s praises. Always a favorite and familiar face for returning guests, he is known for being a kind, gracious and accommodating host, and for skillfully navigating out-of-towners around Charleston. Here are a few comments:
“I called the Mansion directly and spoke with the staff person on site – Christian. He was very courteous and helpful. I called 3 other competitors the same day. I choose Wentworth Mansion because of the staff’s professionalism and willingness to accommodate my request as this was my 1st anniversary.”
“The Wentworth Mansion was everything and more than we expected. From the moment we checked in we were treated like royalty. The staff takes you back in time when service was considered important. I especially want to mention Christian, Ken, Stephanie and Joe. Their dedication to making us feel at home was something we will always remember.”
“Christian provided exceptional service at the front desk–he helped us switch rooms, booked events, and was generally very friendly and incredibly helpful!“
When asked what he’ll miss most, without hesitation, Christian’s answer was, “The people. Definitely the people. I meet new people all the time here and I’ve really enjoyed that.” He also left behind a few recommendations of his favorite, go-to things to do in Charleston: visit Magnolia and Middleton Plantations, take a carriage downtown tour and enjoy a dinner at our Circa 1886 or nearby Charleston Grill.
Though his presence will be missed, Christian is leaving behind an amazing concierge team who are all ready to fill his shoes. Break a leg, knock ’em dead, and best of luck to you Christian! Join us in saying goodbye to Christian and wishing him the best of luck on his new adventure.
