The Governor's House Inn

117 Broad St., Charleston, South Carolina, 29401, United States

The stately architecture of this quintessential Charleston lodging radiates the grandeur, romance, and civility of the city's bountiful colonial era. A National Historic Landmark, the 1760 property is filled with antiques and period reproductions in the public rooms and the high-ceilinged guest rooms, some of which have whirlpool tubs. The best room is the Rutledge Suite, a legacy to the home's most well-known owner, Governor Edward Rutledge (a signer of the Declaration of Independence). Nice touches include a proper afternoon tea, where wine and cheese are also served. You can take breakfast on the wide, inviting piazza, in the dining room, or have it delivered to your room.
