A gracious estate built in 1853 is the present-day site of The Mills House Wyndham Grand Hotel, a property rich in the Southern charm of its storied Charleston surroundings. You’ll receive a warm welcome in this bright-pink building in the Holy City’s Historic District, which has a stunning façade, lush courtyard and outdoor pool – the hotel’s 214 rooms, as well as drinking and dining areas, couple the elegance of a 19th-century luxury hotel with the style of old-school hospitality unique to the American South.
With its proximity to Museum Mile and downtown restaurants and shops, The Mills House fits in perfectly with the city’s antebellum architecture that feels almost suspended in time. And as a guest here, you’ll also feel right at home among these old-fashioned establishments; Charleston was hailed by Condé Nast Traveler as the friendliest city in America for two years in a row and has been Travel + Leisure’s number-one city in the United States and Canada for three years running.
The 214 rooms at The Mills House are individually decorated in a modern, coastal style. Each offers a 36-in. LCD TV, a work space, complimentary Wi-Fi and coffee-making facilities. Have your pick of one kind or two double beds – either room you choose will come with a pretty city view.
Enjoy Southern cuisine, prepared by esteemed Chef Jonathan Hawks, at the hotel’s own restaurant, Barbadoes Room. Sip a cocktail in the legendary Fountain Courtyard or the First Shot Lounge, both right on the hotel property. If you choose to stray off into the city, you’ll also find that Charleston is home to many restaurants, from fine-dining establishments to classic clam shacks, and that you’re in a prime spot to reach these restaurants easily.
Charleston is truly a gem of the American South, and Mills House’s central location places you in an ideal spot to admire the city’s idiosyncratic beauty. From the hotel, you can get to the shops and restaurants at City Market, the South Carolina Aquarium, and Patriots Park, all on foot. If you’d rather take to the waters, you can simply hop on a harbor cruise to historic Fort Sumter.
How to Get There
I was very disappointed with this property. My room was not clean and there was hair in my guest towels. The rooms are not updated and are very old and run down. Compared to other properties in this area this is by far the worst one I’ve stayed at.
The service was second to none. The staff was helpful, polite and willing. The hotel was clean smelled amazing and located in a prime section of town walkable to the markets, carriage rides, Rainbow row and many more sites. Would highly recommend!
The Mill House has a very charming appearance from the street. The Valet is a wonderful service & our car was easily available . The staff was suoer friendly & the lobby & grounds immaculate. It has an intimate feel. The rooms were very clean & big enough. Our King sized bed was very comfy with soft & firm pullows to accomodate sleeping preferences. We walked from the hotel to the C of C . We had a great breakfast at Toast located close to the Mill House.. There are hotels closer to the college, but I would definately recommend The Mill house as a more affordable , upscale option to those hotels. We will be back!
It is a old historic hotel so things needed updating. Windows were sealed for noise control but we were unable to open for fresh air. Bellman was great, friendly and helpful. Bartender was not happy and grumpy. He was in the wrong job.
Super nice and accommodating staff. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with helpful and friendly faces all around. The hotel is very clean and comfy and in a great location for walking most anywhere. Will be staying here again.
