The Governor's House Inn Review

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. Nice touches include a proper afternoon tea, where wine and cheese are also served.
