- Ansonborough InnFirst to ReviewJul 05, 2012
This inn, with its rooftop views of Charleston’s harbor, was named for the British naval officer who rose to the ranks of First Lord of the Admiralty! He was a blue blood, a world traveler (circumnavigated the globe) and a brave commandant. He captured a Spanish galleon and the throne’s booty prize made him a rich man for life, enabling him to buy up a lotta Charleston.
His namesake inn has decided nautical décor and exposed wooden timbers. Rooms were carved out of a harbor side warehouse. The public areas may be dark, with traditional décor, perhaps too much stuff and most of the art, all of which is for sale, is not my taste, but the rooms are. Guest rooms manage to have that desirable mix of minimalist modernity against a backdrop of original red brick walls. In the small, dark intimate pub with a portrait of “himself,” it feels like the walls could tell countless stories of the olden days, of pirates and loot.
