    The staff were wonderful. Location perfect. The attention to details lovely. It couldn't have been better and would definitely return. A classic historic inn in the heart of Charleston. Many amenities.

  • 9.6

    This was our first visit to Charleston. We loved how clean this hotel was and the friendliness of all the staff. Our room was in the Carriage House behind the hotel and was extremely quiet. The location cannot be beat, it is within walking distance to everything we wanted to do in the city. Loved the free wi-fi and the ability to stop by the hotel for free bottled water was fantastic as we were there when it was slightly hotter than normal.

    Breakfast is a little confusing for some reason. Twice we had to call and find out where our food was when it was to be delivered to the room and the first time, we only got some of the items we ordered. It seemed to work smoother when we ate in the ballroom.

    Staff very nice. Historically interesting. Did not think to ask if there was a list of men who were guests in John's time as my ancestor, Charles Cantey, from St Stevens, SC was on the Provential Congress and could have been in Charleston for meetings. Guess there are no records that would have mentioned him. If anyone knows of any, I would certainly appreciate knowing about them. Will recommend the Inn to anyone planning to visit Charleston.

  • 10.0

    The staff goes above and beyond, tea time is splendid, and something about getting breakfast in bed gives off the feeling of another time when things were simpler. Great experience! I will definitely be back!

    front desk was very helpful for restaurants staff was very friendly free breakfast which was great made to order port in the afternoon and brandy at night very clean and comfortable rooms location is outstanding

    nothing. we loved our visit.

  • 7.0

    Nice room and building.

    Breakfast was a joke. They made such a fuss about it and then it took half an hour to arrive, with not even a cup of tea to sip while we waited. Then breakfast arrived but without any milk. We asked for some milk but it did not arrive and we then had to help ourselfs from the front desk. The staff did not seem to care at all.

  • 10.0

    The staff were friendly and very professional. The house was beautiful.

  • 9.6

    The staff is outstanding. They made all 3 dinner reservations which were delicious. Complimentary breakfast was a good selection and could be delivered to the room. Afternoon tea included port and brandy and could be enjoyed on the terrace. Complimentary bottled water for hot and humid temperatures. Bed was Tempurpedic - amazing sleep! Could enjoy breakfast in courtyard patio. Great value. Discovered that they have a few rooms reserved for pet-friendly guests.

    It is a restored home and therefore there is no elevator. This may pose an issue for elder travelers. But otherwise, a great place to stay.

  • 10.0

    From the beginning we start with a private area just for the Inn and Carriage House parking, then the intimate courtyard nicely secluded from the hustle and bustle of being practically in the center on historic Charleston, the notable cleanliness of the stairway in the Carriage House as we ascended to our guest room "#14".....all of those spectacular details flooding the senses before we ever entered the room! The room was perfectly conditioned as we entered- it reminded us of being at home more than staying at an boutique hotel. The bathroom was spacious and very clean and able to accommodate our toiletries. The bed was luscious..........and we had cable in the room!!!!!!!!!!!- a first from many trips! The complimentary breakfast allowed you many options: from having it in the room, or in the courtyard, or in the main house ballroom; and the choices of breakfast meals were very nice- not the typical "out- of-a-box" variety. The staff were incredible, cordial, informative, accommodating- the people are 5 star and that reflects on the caliber of management. This will be one of the best mini getaways we have ever had. When staying in Charleston it will always be "The John Rutledge House Inn" for us, yes indeed!!!!!!!

    That we had to leave!

  • 10.0

    Warm southern hospitality in the historic district. Afternoon tea was lovely and a great place to meet other visitors!!

    This stay was a gift to my parents for their 50th Anniversary. Jim and CC helped to make it one of the most special and memorable stays in Charleston! I had several special touches that they were able to pull off and had the room prepared perfectly! They were treated like royalty and enjoyed the first afternoon so much they didn't want to leave. The Rutledge House is historical and beautiful. They stayed in John Rutledge's room which was one of the largest with 2 fireplaces and living room area. Couldn't be happier with my/their experience at the Rutledge House. Highly recommend a stay here!

    Great appointments. Laudable attention to preservation of original character. Excellent, attentive, polite service. Great breakfasts. A Southern Gem.

    No complaints

  • 9.6

    Room was large, clean and was nice to have a separate lounge area. Building was fantastic - got a real taste of staying in "the South". The staff were helpful, a pleasure to talk to and made you feel very welcome. Parking was convenient - if not a bit unusual to get to because of the one way system!

    Breakfast was average - I was hoping for a very Southern experience. It was an average American breakfast. Not really a fair complaint because it wasn't bad. Just wasn't up to the standard of the rest of the experience.

  • 10.0

    Everything and everyone was wonderful. It was a lovely place to stay.

  • 10.0

    The staff was exceptional! The cookie time, cocktail hour and after dinner drinks were a lovely addition. The room was quaint and comfortable. The breakfast was delightful. Perfect location. There was nothing NOT to like about this place.

    Loved it all!
