Best Place to Stay in CharlestonYou know that you've stayed in a remarkably well run hotel when you're feeling sad when you leave. That was certainly the case with the John Rutledge House. This is a great hotel with a wonderful staff. Clean, comfortable and absolutely lovely rooms. Terrific breakfasts, excellent afternoon tea and pastries (perfect after a day of walking), and a great selection of late night drinks like port in the evening. Kudos to Lisa, Holly, Margo, Shimeek and Virgil for taking such good care of us. Note that the hotel is right next to the historic district and is perfectly located for walking everywhere. Hotels further north are not so well located. We were able to walk around the south of Broad area and walk to some great restaurants north of the hotel with ease. I'd go back in a heartbeat. BTW, Burbage's Grocery, just down Broad Street, is charming and a great place to pick up freshly made sandwich.Passenger784906 | 4/28/23
"Wonderful Inn, Great Staff and Location!"First-class experience every step of the way! The staff at the Rutledge House is fantastic, from my initial conversation upon booking to check in and check out. Highly recommend and can’t wait to return!SuzyQu15 | Brooklyn, New York | 4/28/23
"Great inn; fantastic staff"We really enjoyed our stay there. The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room in the carriage house was spacious and the room was comfortable. The afternoon tea and evening port were fun and tasty. I think our concierge staff were what made it exceptional. They truly went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be.MaryEllen2013 | Edmonds, Washington | 4/27/23
