Grand Mansion Suite Wentworth Mansion "Ever dreamed of living in a grand house with 30-foot ceilings, a fireplace in every room and a backyard so big you need a map to find your way around? For the cost of a night's stay you can, at these landmark estate hotels that were once the posh private residences of wealthy politicians, cotton barons and the like..." Guy Wentworth Mansion Chimney in Charleston Jill Becker, Travel Writer and Contributor to CNN Travel, recently mentioned Charleston's Wentworth Mansion among eight of America's most elegant mansion hotels. We are honored and feel oh-so-very-elegant on this Monday afternoon. The Wentworth Mansion is named among some of the most grand homes in the country. Many of the noted mansion hotels are found in beautiful, Great Gatsby-esque New England cities. Only two properties, including the Wentworth Mansion, are found below the Mason Dixon line. Becker recounts the Wentworth Mansion's history in the article, saying:

"Dating to 1886, this 21-room, four-story property in historic downtown Charleston was built for wealthy Southern cotton merchant Francis Silas Rodgers, his wife and their 13 children. Though it's been totally restored, guests will see many of the original details installed by architect Daniel G. Wayne, including Tiffany stained glass, pressed tin ceilings, crystal chandeliers and carved marble mantles. The former stables now serve as the hotel's 1,000-square-foot spa, and the one-time carriage house has been converted into its four-star dining room."

These properties are all over a century old; the Wentworth Mansion is the second oldest behind the The Chanler in Newport, Rhode Island. Hop over to CNN Travel to read more.
