Around the World: Zero George, Charleston


Have you ever been to Charleston? Everyone who goes seems to fall head over heels for this picturesque southern city, and after years of wanting to pay a visit, I’m excited to be heading there this August! The trip will be for The Blog Societies’ annual conference and to say I’m looking forward to exploring the city and its dining offerings is an understatement!

If you’ve seen photos of Charleston (highly recommend following Annie Reeves and her Instagram for a solid highlight reel of the city), it won’t come as a surprise that a boutique hotel that looks like Zero George exists. It’s situated on what used to be two historic plots of land known as the “Federal Green,” and the property as it stands today is actually made up of five buildings. I think it strikes the perfect balance of homey, crisp, and southern–what do you think?

This is the dreamiest fireplace setup…the detailing and gold mirror! Oh, and the duchess chair and coffee table. I’ll take ’em all.

Pretty accordion side tables (Urban Outfitters of all places has very similar ones under $80). If you haven’t picked up on this now, I love mixing traditional + modern elements. Zero George does this so well because the hotel draws on Charleston’s history, incorporating two styles: the “British Trade” (“classic and tailored”) as well as “French Romantic” (“light and soft impression.”)

The hotel has just 18 studios and suites, so it’s no surprise that no detail goes unnoticed. All of the rooms/suites have private piazzas overlooking the courtyard and each room contains the building’s original architectural elements. I’m convinced that this is the reason why well-maintained boutique hotels consistently catch my eye. After years of staying in large chain hotels (nothing wrong with that, just a different experience!), I’m ready to experience the boutique life a little bit more!

These sconces!! Something about them just instantly pulls a room together, not to mention preserves valuable nightstand space.

I don’t normally love stark white decor, but am a serious fan of this bathroom. That cross handle faucet is to die for.

This room has the perfect amount of minimalism for a living space…also, that’s a great way to display two pieces of art together.

Zero George’s outdoor space has rattan, which is one of my favorite materials and is seriously underrated. I mean, these brown chairs…

The hotel restaurant is apparently incredible, and I’d imagine it’s hard not too stay at the hotel without taking a few walks around the property or enjoying a drink al fresco in the courtyard or on a patio. It’s safe to say you’ll see some IRL photos when I’m in Charleston this summer but for now, either book a stay or start dreaming of one!

    I looooooove Zero! I’ve stayed at a few hotels around town, and this one is my favorite. It’s exactly what you’d want out of a hotel in Charleston – it feels like you’re staying in someone’s beautiful southern home. So nice! Thanks for the shout out :) xoxo

    I fell in love with Charleston through Annie’s Instagram account and am on a mission to visit one of these days!

    I wasn’t familiar with The Blog Societies until you mentioned it and I clicked on the link. It seems there is an application process and small, annual fee. Before I apply, I’d like to know more from someone about the benefits, etc. Could you share a little? Feel free to email me if that’s easier!

      The Blog Societies is a great resource and group to join if you’re looking for a sort of informative yet fun blogging network. It’s a modest annual fee (and I don’t believe the application process is too extensive, unless it’s changed significantly)…you can submit your posts monthly to be shared across the Societies’ social platforms, and brands often work directly with the group to provide exclusive opportunities for members. The conference is also a huge benefit–I didn’t go last year but heard only good things about the educational aspect and collaboration opportunities. Definitely shoot me an email if you have any more questions, but hopefully this helps answer some :)

        Yes, this is really helpful. Thanks Monica! This is the first year I actually created a budget for my blog (I wanted to hire a photographer for my outfit photos and needed to know if I could afford it). It’s forced me to evaluate where I’m investing, which has been really helpful. I think I’m going to work the fee into my budget, apply and see how it goes!

    This hotel looks gorgeous! My family visited Charleston last year but we planned it last minute so we had to stay outside of the downtown area, unfortunately. Next time, I wouldn’t mind a stay here!
