In Your Element
Charleston’s penchant for Southern Hospitality and historically-inclined spaces is experienced fully in its inviting hotels.
Zero George Street
0 George Street | (843) 817-7900
As lodging goes, Zero George is the belle of the Holy City’s hotel ball. A wide-planked porch enfolds you in welcome, and inside, room after stately room is a page out of your Elle Décor dreams. Add to that a jewel box of a bar and Hemingway-esque brasserie and there’s nothing about this slice-of-heaven boutique inn that you won’t love.
112 N. Market Street | (843) 722-2345
A short walk through the curlicue iron gates of Planters Inn feels worlds away from the bustle of Meeting Street. Charleston’s only Relais & Chateaux property more than lived up to its grande dame status during our visit. And those three little words make the prospect of room service wickedly tempting: Ultimate. Coconut. Cake.
149 Wentworth Street | (888) 466-1886
If don’t-you-lift-a-finger southern hospitality with a serious side of Holy City history is what you’re looking for in your Charleston quarters, get thyself to the Wentworth Mansion pronto.
There’s little we appreciate more than spectacular service, especially when nightly turndowns and spa adjacency are on the menu. But there are cities that lend themselves to ‘living like a local’, and Charleston is just such a city. Imagine taking your morning coffee in along with the views from this historic double piazza or sharing waterfront views with Rainbow Row. It’s enough to make you feel right at home.
