Five restored 19th-century residences have been joined together to create this hideaway in the heart of Charleston's leafy Ansonborough neighborhood that's surrounded by well-heeled homes, and just a short walk from East Bay restaurants, City Market, and Liberty Square. The 18 studios and suites are spread out among the interconnected historic structures—three former homes and two brick carriage houses, with private piazzas throughout—and many feature original elements like pine floors or millwork details. Rooms have a varied decor inspired by different elements of Charleston's past—tailored British trade, airy French Romantic, and nautical Yachting Design—and feature natural linens and fabrics, marble bathrooms, and custom furniture. The Zero Cafe + Bar serves breakfast and light fare in the evening and has a full bar; libations can also be enjoyed in the Garden courtyard. The original brick-and-stucco kitchen hosts private cooking classes with the chef. Packages themed around sailing, history, art, and architecture are also available.
