Where to stay

The Governor’s House Inn
The Governor’s House Inn (circa 1760), with its 11 guestrooms, two guest suites and friendly staff, is an ideal romantic get-a-way destination. I suggest the Laurens Room, one of the inn’s premier rooms with 12-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, marble shower, fireplace and a king four-poster bed with arched canopy. This room also offers access to a private second-floor veranda.

The food at the inn is prepared daily on-site from several southern receipt books (as they are called in the South). The peach iced tea and sherry cheddar cheese spread served with crackers for tea, and the Spoleto-inspired French toast with buttered praline sauce for breakfast are just a few examples of their outstanding cuisine.

 Market Pavilion Hotel
Another upscale and centrally-located hotel is the Market Pavilion Hotel, Charleston’s newest small luxe hotel with Old-World charm and modern conveniences. Its rooftop Pavilion Bar and swimming pool offer magnificent views of the Charleston skyline.
