Constructed in 1804 in Charleston, South Carolina, the Zero George Street hotel is a bright, quaint community of sixteen studios and suites enclaved together throughout five historical residential buildings in a lush private landscaped area. The hotel’s effortless blend of European chic with Southern charm provides the perfect aesthetic to accentuate the gentle Charlestonian breezes, vintage settings, and overall easy air of the nook in which the hotel is nestled.
Here, relaxation is encouraged, but comfort is guaranteed. Each room, modeled after the simple elegance of European luxury, features lofty beds with Sealy posturepedic mattresses, triple-sheeted Italian frette linens, and foam and down alternative pillows that certainly makes parting with the bed a sweet sorrow. If you gain the resolve to throw back the covers, however, many more amenities await around the property of the Zero George.
Enjoy the complimentary continental European breakfast on the furnished outdoor piazza, or reflectively sip wine around the cast iron fountains, statuesque palmetto palms, and the luxuriant plantings encamped in the hotel’s garden courtyard. If food is what you’re feeling after a long day of blissful do-nothingness, stop by the Zero George Restaurant + Bar to try the tasty creations of Food-Network-featured and world-renowned Head Chef Vinson Petrillo.
Tantalize your tastebuds with the flavors of dishes such as Parmesan Tortellini, Herb Roasted Cervena Venison, and Whole Roasted Kabocha Squash. If you’re feeling more hands-on, enroll in one of the many three-course cooking classes that the Zero George Restaurant + Bar invites both the general public and hotel guests to partake in.
Afterward, once the inviting call of Charleston becomes too enticing to resist, step out into the city and enjoy the sights that the historic setting has to offer. Sink your toes into the sand of one of Charleston’s five beaches, or walk in the footsteps that the past has carved at the Magnolia Plantations and Gardens, Fort Sumter and Patriots Point Military Museum, or Charleston’s Museum of regional artifacts.
If a change of scenery is what you want, and a weekend of repose is what you need, fall into the open embrace of Charleston’s Zero George Street hotel, and let the charming, airy atmosphere of the city wrap itself around you until your responsibilities seem like distant memories, and your worries cease to exist.
