Named after its historic 1804 street address, Zero George is comprised of 16 lush guest rooms and studios in three immaculately restored historic residences and two brick carriage houses that surround a private garden courtyard. The boutique property – owned by the prestigious Easton Porter Group – features sophisticated guest amenities including custom bicycles by Pure City Cycles, art and architecture tours, Chef-led cooking classes, contemporary art, original heart pine floors and sophisticated design drawn from Charleston’s European influences and rich history as a colonial port.
Hotel guests and visitors alike can take advantage of the acclaimed contemporary American cuisine at Zero Restaurant + Bar, helmed by Executive Chef Vinson Petrillo, a former S. Pellegrino Young Chef award recipient. Prepared in a compact, 140-square-foot kitchen within the property’s kitchen carriage house dating back to 1804, dishes are seasonally focused and ingredient-driven resulting in an imaginative and memorable dining experience.
