Features
Traditional style

Ornate ironwork adorns this stately house on Charleston's main thoroughfare. Built in 1763 by a signer of the U.S. Constitution, the towering mansion and two carriage houses now offer 19 rooms, including palatial suites with canopy beds, 12-foot ceilings, original wood flooring, and Italian fireplaces. Several iterations of the Constitution were drafted within these very walls, so you may wish to raise your complimentary evening brandy in a toast to former residents. Despite the house's history, the amenities are thoroughly modern: whirlpool tubs, Tempur-Pedic mattresses, nightly chocolates, plus the added elegance of breakfast in the ballroom or on the secluded patio.
