Travel + Leisure Magazine Names Wentworth Mansion A Top Hotel

Wentworth Mansion Featured in Travel and Leisure Travel + Leisure Magazine released their highly anticipated annual “Top 500 Hotels in the World” for 2012 this past January, ranking Charleston’s beloved Wentworth Mansion® among the world’s best accommodations. Making this accolade particularly special is the nature of its election process. The list is created by Travel + Leisure readers, a team of seasoned travelers that base their decision on rooms, location, service, food, and overall value. The 2012 “Top 500” list evokes the deepest kind of wanderlust; the kind that has you calculating your vacation accrual and Googling flight deals. It’s a globetrotters’ delight.

Wherever your travels may lead you this year, Travel + Leisure’s “Top 500 Hotels in the World” serves as a guide for the best places to stay. The list features a mix of remote escapes and city hotels, sorted by region. Travel + Leisure editors share insight on special features that set each accommodation apart from the next. Noted as Wentworth Mansion’s stand-out features are its beautiful restoration and attention to detail, specifically during the holiday season. The Travel + Leisure team notes,

“The ornate 21-room Second Empire–style mansion turned hotel dresses in subdued Victorian finery for the holidays with magnolia wreaths, old-world Santas, and two grand Christmas trees in the foyer. Every room has its own fireplace. On your pillow at turndown: chocolate truffles.”

To be recognized among the “Top 500 Hotels in the World” is a true honor. Thank you, Travel + Leisure readers - and congratulations to our fellow top hotels.
