TripAdvisor’s greatly anticipated Travelers’ Choice Awards have been announced, awarding the Wentworth Mansion with top honors in three categories. Our 2014 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards include:
Top Luxury Hotel in the U.S. (#12) and the most luxurious hotel in Charleston
Best Hotel for Romance in the U.S. (#19) and the most romantic hotel in Charleston
These accolades are particularly meaningful, as they are based off our guests’ remarkable TripAdvisor reviews from the last year. We love reading the feedback, hearing tales about our incredible staff and experiencing the Wentworth Mansion from our guests’ point of view. Here are a few of our favorite recent TripAdvisor comments:
Luxurious Treat- guest from New York, New York
“Always a good start when the concierge calls you a week before your arrival to find out what he can arrange in the way of restaurant or tour reservations. Otherwise, not much more to add to the many raves already posted about the spacious & immaculate rooms, lavish breakfasts and hit-the-spot afternoon wine and hors d’oeuvres. It’s definitely one of the prettiest and best maintained places we’ve ever stayed in. We easily walked everywhere in the city from here, down to the tip of Charleston and back north – it’s totally flat.”
The Best – guest from Borger, Texas
“We travel quite extensively and I can say confidently that this is the finest boutique small hotel that I have ever been to. From the staff (attentive without being intrusive), to the complimentary breakfast at Circa 1886, to the rooms, everything was a solid 10. There is not one single complaint. There isn’t a single improvement that I could even think of to mention. If you are lucky enough to find yourself in this great city, stay at the flagship and best accommodations in the area. The Wentworth Mansion is hall of fame worthy.“
A Wonderful, Unexpected Stay – guest from Marlborough, Massachusetts
“My wife and I were on our way onto the plane when I received notification that our connecting flight had been canceled. We were not able to get back home that night so rather stay in another town we opted for another night in beautiful Charleston. Using TripAdvisor we decided to stay at the Wentworth Mansion since it was ranked excellent by many travelers. We agree! We were greeted at the door and the staff member was very friendly and helpful. He gave us a nice tour of the mansion and then showed us our room. What a great room! The fireplace added ambiance and the large bath tub was appointed such that one could luxuriate and enjoy the city view.
My wife and I stepped out (a quick note that King Street is only 10 min walk away) to buy a few clothing items (our luggage made it to the next city without us) and on our return back to the room there was a small black bag hanging on the door. The staff had gone out to purchase us deodorant, tooth brushes, and tooth paste knowing we lost our luggage! Now that is service! In the evening tasty appetizers from the 5 star restaurant were offered, wine was offered and night cap service was freely available in the parlor area. If you’re looking for a romantic getaway in a unique luxury accommodation this is a great option!“
The Wentworth Mansion’s Circa 1886 Restaurant has received praise in the new year as well. Both the Today Show and Travel + Leisure highlighted Circa 1886 as one of the most romantic restaurants in Charleston.
