Overview

If you're an American history buff, recent guests insist that you stay at this boutique hotel. Once the former home of John Rutledge (one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence), this magnificent 18th-century hotel features 19 guest rooms and suites within the main residence and two carriage houses. Each room is decked out in detailed Italian marble fireplaces, inlaid floors, the property's original plaster moldings. Amenities include complimentary bottled water and wireless Internet access. And along with the room furnishings, recent lodgers also rave about the complimentary breakfast and the evening port, sherry and brandy. Plus, guests here have easy access to some of Charleston's most historic attractions, including the Nathaniel Russell House and the Old Slave Mart Museum.
