John Dewberry is transforming Southern hospitality, one property at a time. The Charleston-based real estate developer, who entered the industry at New York-based Marine Midland Bank (now HSBC) before founding Dewberry Capital Corporation in 1989, has spearheaded the investment, development and management of over one billion dollars of premier real estate. But it wasn’t until 2008 that his sights turned to hospitality when he purchased an abandoned federal building in downtown Charleston.
Feeling that the building "deserved a new story", Dewberry began renovations with the goal of breathing new life into the space and preserving its historic charm. In 2016, The Dewberry opened its doors, welcoming well-heed leisure and business travelers to their mid-century modern hotel. That same year, the hotel was inducted into Historic Hotels of America. Emphasizing high design and embued with a strong dose of Southern charm, The Dewberry welcomes guests to experience the history and heritage of Charleston from their world-class hotel.
