Four-poster rice beds and chintz-covered settees have their place, just don’t expect to find any at Zero George, Charleston’s new boutique hotel. Owned by Dean and Lynn Andrews, the historic, eighteen-room hotel is set apart by its fresh contemporary design. A veteran in the hospitality business, Dean helped develop and then manage Charleston Place hotel before decamping to New York and then Charlottesville, where he and Lynn run Easton Events and Pippin Hill Vineyards—a winery, restaurant, and events space overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains. But, Dean says, “I was always trying to come up with a reason to return to Charleston.” After a tour of Zero George (it’s just a few blocks from our office), we’re glad he finally did.
