The Dewberry, Charleston, USA
Launched last autumn, the Dewberry occupies the former L Mendel Rivers Federal Building and takes its name from the hotel’s founder John Dewberry, who has meticulously brought the property back to life. Interiors are a handsome blend of old and new, mixing local materials with mid-century-modern design in the 155 bedrooms and suites that overlook the picturesque Marion Square. To complement the native Southern charm, Henrietta’s dishes up brasserie classics such as Maine blue mussels and roasted beets with ginger.
From about £250 a room a night (thedewberrycharleston.com).
