Fodor's Review

A favorite local landmark that serves as a departure point for several historic tours, the Mills House is the modern iteration of the original 1853 hotel by the same name, where General Robert E. Lee once slept. The lobby sports an elaborate crystal chandelier and marble floors, while all guest rooms feature antique reproductions that combine Southern charm with Asian accents. Work out in the fitness center, or relax on the deck beside the delightful pool. Lowcountry specialties are served in the Barbados Room, which opens onto the terrace courtyard with its lovely floral mosaic by famed landscape architect Loutrell Briggs.
