Wentworth Mansion Lets Visitors Become ‘True Charlestonians’

The city of Charleston has a culture all its own. From the seeksucker suits to the
shrimp and grits, plenty a visitor from north of the Mason-Dixon Line has been intrigued by the Holy City’s gentile ways and its storied past. Now, the historic Wentworth Mansion® is giving Charleston visitors a chance to become a “true” Charlestonian.

The historic
AAA Five Diamond hotel is offering a True Charlestonian package that includes
all things Southern. In addition to two nights at the Wentworth Mansion® and
dinner for two at Circa 1886, the hotel’s on-site AAA Four
Diamond, Forbes Four Star restaurant, guests will experience a fashion
consultation (complete with bow tie) at Berlin's clothing store; two tickets to Fort Sumter, where the “war of
Northern aggression” began; and a carriage ride through historic downtown
Charleston for a history – and “lingo” – lesson

Known as one of
the country’s most polite cities, guests also can experience a true Southern
tea in the hotel’s sun porch room, and they’ll get to take a little bit of Charleston home with a gift basket
of Charleston goodies from Market Street Munchies,
including tea, pecans and Charleston classic benne wafers.

The mansion
itself was built in 1886 by wealthy cotton merchant Francis Silas Rodgers,
making guests feel they stepped back in time with its hand-carved marble
fireplaces, intricate woodwork and Tiffany-stained glass windows. Circa 1886
restaurant is housed inside what was once the carriage house for the Wentworth

“Charleston has long captivated
visitors with its beauty, history and Southern charm,” says Linn Lesesne,
director of public relations and group sales. “We wanted to give our guests the
opportunity to be more than tourists, and to really steep themselves into the
lore and all it means to be a resident of Charleston. If we can get them
saying ‘y’all’ before they leave, we’ll consider it a success!”

Cost for the
True Charlestonian package is $1,050 and bookings are subject to availability.
For reservations, call 888-466-1886.
