What a welcome retreat at this beautiful Savannah B&B. The apartment was lovely, comfortable and well appointed. The gardens so lovely and relaxing. My daughter's dog was welcomed with open arms as were we. Treat yourself if you are ever in Savannah!
My wife and I have stayed in many Bed and Breakfast Inns over the years, but the Chatham Suite of the Armstrong Inns is far and above the best of them all. The accommodations were clean and comfortable and there was nothing that we could want. Although the Suite was "over the top" the treatment by the Armstrong Inn staff was unbeatable. We had the feeling from the first minute that we were staying at a friend's home and that nothing was spared to make our visit enjoyable and memorable. We were even visited my Monique, the Innkeeper/Owner just prior to our departure. She thanked us profusely for choosing the Armstrong Inn and she really meant it. There is absolutely no doubt in our minds that when we return to Savannah we will definitely stay at an Armstrong Inn. Thank you Monique and your staff for enabling us to have a most memorable 55th wedding anniversary.
My boyfriend and I stayed here during our visit to Georgia. This place is the epitome of southern charm and hospitality. I enjoyed every second staying here. This establishment is located on a quiet, tree-filled street that is a short walk to the river and downtown area. The room was immaculate and charming. The decor was Victorian-chic (as my boyfriend describes it), definitely has a historic feel. Breakfast was delicious. Evening cookies and milk made it a perfect visit. I would love to go back soon!
Staying at the Ballastone Inn enhanced our Savannha visit. Jennifet, the innkeeper and her staff, understand the importance in a guests stay is in the details. Her staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms were immaculate with lots of towels. The Inn is romantic with a beautiful entrance enhanced with jazz or Sinatra playing in the background. It is a very memorable place
Good intentions became greater intentions! We intended to commute back and forth from Tybee Island to Savannah, but...why leave the "aaahhh"? The wrap around porch was too good to leave, not to mention the fabulous breakfasts, delish homemade goodies and sweet tea that were always available, the comfy bed, the even more awesome staff, and the beach just a shell's throw away! Okay, we did leave "home", but didn't go far. There are a lot of fun things to do on Tybee!
Everything about our stay here was perfect: the amenities, the food, the company, the hosts, the price. Everything. Our favorite part from our Savannah trip was this inn; we'll never stay anywhere else. Thank you, Glenn and Maurice! -AM
We stayed in the guest house, 312 King. Everything was so much better than expected. I will definitely reccommend 1790 Inn to others traveling through Savannah. We were very impressed by the details and charm of the old house - it seemed so inviting. I wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks for the hospitality :)
What a delightful place! We enjoyed the innkeeper special rate and stayed in the Parlor room, which was lovely. We stayed in this lovely home like setting cheaper than we did our hotel room in Jax Beach the next night! The people were so good to us. Highly recommend.
We consider ourselves very fortunate to have stayed for three nights at The Green Palm Inn. Diane and her staff could not have been more welcoming or more helpful. Our room (The Sabal Palm) was so serene,comfortable, well appointed, and very clean! Breakfast was more than ample and always delicious. You will need to stroll the beautiful Savannah squares after eating such wonderful food! We walked most of the squares, enjoyed the town center, strolled River Street, visited shops, restaurants and museums, all without moving our car! It was lovely to return to the Inn for a little peace and quiet before going to dinner. If you work up an appetite walking about the city, the 4-6 pm happy hour will tempt you with lovely sweets and savories, as well as wine and other beverages. Diane had many helpful suggestions to help us during our stay. We eagerly look forward to our next visit to The Green Palm Inn.
We absolutely loved our stay at The Galloway House for our honeymoon. Since my bride enjoys natural light, Jim and Keith suggested the 3rd floor loft apartment and it was lovely. We also appreciated their suggestions regarding places to see and to eat. We can't wait for another opportunity to visit!
I took my girlfriend here last year for her birthday. From the phone conversation to book our room to our last day at Park Avenue everything was spectacular. Glenn and Maurice were wonderful host. The food was out of this world and the care and compassion they had for their services was inspiring. I plan to visit Savannah come this fall and cannot imagine not booking again. Thank you Park Avenue Manor!
Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and they allowed us to check in, although we were early and our room wasn't yet ready. The owners, Patty and Nathan were very friendly and a great help on things to see and do in the city. The room was clean and very comfortable and all of the staff that we encountered had a smile on their faces and were always very helpful. We will be back!
The room was very comfortable however; we found the mattress to be very uncomfortable, we woke up in pain. The ladies especially Leigh were absolutely delightful, we felt very Welcome. The breakfast was delicious and your coffee was quite good! (which is unusual in the South). We will return! Cyndi D. Thanks!
This place was recommended to us for our visit to Savannah. Great location for walking about the town. We did not need the car once we arrived here. Rooms were very well decorated, comfy beds, and the staff was very, very accommodating. Would highly recommend Ballastone Inn to anyone.
I love this place!! I have stayed here 3 times and plan to make many more trips back. Maurice and Glenn are wonderful hosts and do everything they can to help you have great stay. The location is out of the hustle and bustle of the riverwalk, but is beautiful walk through all the parks to get downtown.
Jim and Keith were very helpful in recommending sightseeing options, cafes and restaurants and made us feel at home. The Carriage house was perfect for relaxing and was quite spacious after small hotel rooms in NYC and DC. regards Campbell and Christina
5 stars!! This place was amazing! The rooms are lovely and the king size bed was very comfortable. The wine offered in the dinning room each evening was wonderful! Breakfast at B.Mathew's Eatery was terrific! We were really pleased with our stay and will certainly be back. Perfect location to walk to River Street and all the surrounding shops.
This was our first experience in Tybee Island and we were met by wonderful hosts at the Tybee Island Inn. Our stay was short but outstanding. Lloyd and his wife were gracious hosts with lots of good ideas for our short stay. The Inn was clean and charming and breakfast was outstanding. If you have diet restrictions, they are more than happy to accommodate your needs. I would recommend the Tybee Island Inn to those who prefer a homestyle stay instead of a large establishment hotel.
My husband and I had a great stay! The inn is a little farther from the main part of Savannah than I thought but we enjoyed walking and talking on the trip so it wasn't bad at all. Service was wonderful, food was yummy, and the cats are an added bonus :-) We loved how our room (the blue cottage) had it's own separate entrance...we felt we were in our own little world! I would certainly recommend this inn to anyone thinking about staying.
I booked at the last minute for a one night getaway and received a good price. The room was charming and well decorated (102) but felt a little damp and had a slight mildewy smell. The room was clean but the sink and coffee maker could have used a little more attention. The staff was nice but not overly friendly, but they were helpful with my questions...but I do wish they knew a little more about the history of the building. The location was PERFECT -- right in the heart of historic Savannah.
Savannah's Bed and Breakfast Inn is in a wonderful location, just 2 blocks from Forsyth Park, and right around the corner from the Mercer House. The Inn has wonderful breakfasts each morning, that change so you don't end up eating the same thing every day. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the historic charm is fun to explore. The staff is very friendly, and always willing to help with any questions about Savannah. I would stay here again.
Descubre Savannah, la ciudad de los fantasmas
La ciudad de Savannah es la mayor y también la más antigua del estado de Georgia. Fue fundada en 1733 junto con la colonia de Georgia y se convirtió, unos años después, en la capital de la Colonia Real de Georgia. Conocida como “la ciudad anfitriona del Sur”, por la tradicional hospitalidad de los habitantes del sur de los Estados Unidos, recibe cada año la visita de millones de turistas. Es además famosa por sus fantasmas, tanto como puede serlo Salem, en Massachusetts. Las historias paranormales se remontan en esta ciudad a sus mismos inicios, y los incidentes documentados son numerosos.
Cosas que hacer y ver en Savannah
Entre los cinco distritos históricos de la ciudad se cuentan 22 plazas, cada una asociada a un momento distinto de la historia, y a lo largo de toda la ciudad hay varias iglesias y sinagogas, además de viviendas históricas en perfecto estado de conservación. Probablemente la más famosa sea la Mercer House, principal localización de la novela “Medianoche en el jardín del bien y del mal”, convertida hoy en un museo. En el centro histórico de la ciudad se conserva un cementerio de la época colonial y a no mucha distancia del centro se encuentran varios fuertes que sirvieron para la defensa de la ciudad durante la guerra civil estadounidense. El antiguo Cotton Exchange, construido en 1887, es de obligada visita. Antiguamente era el lugar en el que se llevaban a cabo todas las transacciones comerciales del algodón sureño, y lugar de partida y llegada de esta carga; su visita, junto con el recorrido por el Historic Riverfront Park es toda una experiencia.
Especialidades culinarias en Savannah
La ciudad cuenta con restaurantes para todos los gustos y bolsillos, muchos de ellos situados en la zona de los bed and breakfast de Savannah. En cualquier caso, esta es la ciudad perfecta para degustar los típicos platos de la gastronomía sureña, como el delicioso pollo frito al estilo sureño o los tomates verdes fritos.
Eventos destacados en Savannah
El evento anual más destacado de la ciudad es la celebración el 17 de marzo del día de San Patricio, con una fiesta de carnaval (la segunda mayor del país) que puede recordar al Mardi Gras que se celebra cada año en Bourbon Street en Nueva Orleans. Los primeros sábados de cada mes se celebra el “First Saturday on the River”, una celebración familiar en la histórica River Street, con ferias de arte y artesanía a la orilla del río, el evento ideal para disfrutar en familia.
