Description John Rutledge House
- The John Rutledge House Inn offers nineteen guest rooms within a complex of three buildings. One may choose between the elegance of rooms and spacious suites in the original grand residence or the charm and seclusion of rooms in the Inn's two carriage houses. Antiques and historically accurate reproductions give each room its own warmth and distinction, complemented by the finest in modern amenities, conveniences, and personalized service. Guests may leave cars parked on site for their entire stay because the best of this beautiful port city is just beyond the doors of the John Rutledge House Inn«. The gracious antebellum residential area South of Broad begins directly opposite the Inn. John Rutledge, one of the fifty five signers of the U.S. Constitution, built his home in 1763. Now exquisitely restored, it is one of only fifteen homes belonging to those signers to survive and the only one to now accommodate overnight guests. A stay in this elegant antebellum home offers the opportunity to experience history as well as the warm hospitality for which the South is justly famous. The city's finest restaurants, theatres, shops, Charleston Place, and the Market are all within a few minutes walk. Guests will note that old fashioned Southern charm and distinctive U.S. history are augmented at this hotel by the very modern amenity of wireless Internet access.
