Checking in: Zero George Street

Checking in:  Zero George Street

The Zero George Street hotel in Charleston, South Carolina, boasts the perfect balance of old-world luxury and Southern charm.  The property is comprised of several remodeled historic buildings and carriage houses, each over a 150 years old, surrounding a quiet brick lined courtyard oozing with character.  After my first trip to Charleston, I could not wait to return and check-in to the Zero George.  A stay at this boutique property perfectly sets the scene for a Southern experience in the historic city of Charleston.



Accommodations: The rooms are spacious and well-appointed with an almost spa-like feel, further complimented by the Malin + Goetz toiletries provided in the bathrooms.  The staff at the Zero George embodies the quintessence of Southern hospitality.  During my solo stay, they went above and beyond to make sure I felt perfectly welcome and at home.  A call down to the front desk began to feel more like a friendly phone call to a friend or neighbor.

Location:  Although located in a residential part of Charleston, the Zero George is just a short walk from King Street and Market Street.  It is also just a block from the brand new event venue, the Charleston Gaillard Center.

Nosh:  The Zero George is fit for foodies! The main carriage house serves as a guest reception area.  Upon entering, you can’t help but notice the beautiful exposed show kitchen where meals are prepared and cooking classes for guests are regularly held.  The Zero Restaurant + Bar serves up award winning dishes and nightly happy hours.  A fresh and locally sourced breakfast, included every morning in your room rate, is the perfect way to start the day.
