Zero George Street
CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA
“It's pretty difficult to find coastal, boutique hotels, but the Zero George has nailed it. My husband and I couldn’t have been more pleased we chose this hotel with the utmost southern charm. Even though it’s on the northern cusp of downtown, everything is easily within walking distance. It’s only a few short blocks north of the bustle of Market Street where you can find the most amazing treasures, all locally sourced. That said, it was hard to leave the hotel to explore as it’s so cozy and beautifully decorated.
The breakfasts are decadent, and the 5pm wine and cheese hour was a nice touch to end our afternoon before heading to dinner. We took ours on the piazza, large porches off the rooms with comfy furniture, ceiling fans and lit candles for a lovely romantic feel. Speaking of food, the food at the hotel is mind blowing. Our favorites were the foie gras and the white cake honey comb dessert... mouthwatering. The entire hotel and experience was pretty magical. Sitting out on the sleeping verandah in the evening light while watching fireflies twinkling in the courtyard was something we won’t soon forget...”

An all-around southern chic experience. If you want luxury, history, and wine and food, this is the place to stay in Charleston. We even took part in a cooking class led by Chef Vinson and Sous Chef Amanda. It was incredible, and worth every penny. They have seasonal packages, so book in advance!
Anyone. The hotel is great for a romantic getaway, a family stay, or a multi-generational trip.
Four of our friends who live nearby met us for a private yacht tour where we sailed around historic Charleston and watched the sun set. While we sailed, we enjoyed catered hours d’oeuvres and wine sent from the hotel. It was remarkable and we had such a lovely time.
Best time to go
I would recommend fall as it’s still warm, but the spring breeze was so nice while we sat on the piazza.
Summer in Charleston can be EXTREMELY hot and humid, but Sullivan’s Island is only a short 20 minute drive for the hotel, and it’s worth suffering the heat for!
Summer rates start at around $400 per night.
