Overview

A welcoming hotel on an elegant estate in Charleston's Historic District, walking distance from Museum Mile

The Lowdown

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.

Rooms

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.

Dining

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.

Location

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.

Had a great time this Trip. Usually just lounge around but was told by the front desk to do the old jail haunted tour. Don’t miss it. Was one of the best excursions I have been on visiting Charleston the last 10 years

Southern charm meets exceptional service

The Mills House Wyndham Grand Hotel is located at the busy downtown area of Charleston. The location is perfect for both professional as well as leisurely activities. I was looking for a place to organize an international conference. The Mills House met all my requirements, from grand ballrooms for the conference meetings, to ample space for small group discussions. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and efficient. They were able to accommodate all my meeting needs. They helped with the organization of the event as well as provided advise when needed. The event was executed perfectly. The food was excellent. While the hotel is not cheap, we have received exceptional service. All conference participants and organizers had the most positive experience.

Second time staying at The Mills House

I have stayed at the Mills House 3 years ago and just got back from there last week. Nothing has changed. Still the same great service. I will come back again next time I'm in Charleston. Very close to all restaurants, art galleries, free trollys. Great location.
