“To be chosen above so many other tremendously respected hotels across America, not to mention the globe, is truly an honor,” said Rick Widman, owner of the Charming Inns family of hotels and restaurants. “We constantly strive to provide our guests with an experience that will long remain a fond memory, and this award, based on their own assessment, tells us we’re succeeding where it counts.” When Conde Nast talks about the John Rutledge House Inn, here's what they have to say: This "wonderful small inn with loads of charm" was built as a private residence by a signer of the Constitution. Located near King Street’s restaurants and shops, the "classic elegant antebellum" design includes original plaster moldings and inlaid wood floors, ironwork, and Greek Revival porticos around the front door. The "spacious rooms" have Italian-marble fireplaces, period furnishings, and canopy or four-poster beds, creating a "very romantic ambience." As a concession to modern times, flat-screen TVs were added. Although there is no restaurant on-site, guests take "the exceptional breakfast outside in the quaint courtyard" or delivered to their room. "From check-in to departure, we were treated like family." WM: "A beautifully restored historic mansion," the Wentworth was built in 1886 as the private home of a wealthy cotton merchant. "It was as if we had traveled back in time to visit relatives at their grand estate." "The most amazing experience from start to finish. You feel like royalty for a weekend, having someone waiting on you hand and foot." The staff "can’t do enough for you." Sick? They’ll all sign a get-well card and send it with a plush robe. The rooms and suites are "large and period-decorated" in Charleston green, dark reds, and gold; all have huge whirlpool tubs, most have working fireplaces. Breakfast in the garden is "a treat fit for a king."
