Elliott House Inn, Charleston, South Carolina
The Elliott House Inn reopened last October after a two-year renovation of its 25 rooms. The hotel, which predates the Civil War, now combines heirloom armoires and oriental rugs with flat-screen televisions and room service. The statue-filled garden courtyard is the best place to take in the warm Carolina nights. From $89. (877) 727-0369, elliotthouseinn.com
