This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at 1790 inn and each stay was exceptional in every way. The rooms are amazing, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the food in the dining room was excellent. We hope to return again soon. It feels like visiting family, and the ghosts are nice too!
We had two very comfortable nights at the Dresser Palmer House. There was some confusion when we checked in but the staff were very accommodating and helpful and the situation was solved quickly. The room itself was comfortable with ample space and amenities. The breakfasts were hearty and "low country" and served nicely at communal tables. We enjoyed visiting with the other guests over breakfast as well as the wine hour in the evening. The staff gave us a wonderful recommendation for an arrchitectural walking tour and other suggestions to explore the city. The house was situated out of the bustle of downtown on a residential street so it was quiet and peaceful. The front porch was very inviting at all hours to just sit and relax. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.
My husband I loved our stay at Forsyth Park Inn! The view of the park was wonderful! We fell in love with it! Dewayne was more than helpful in giving us references for a "compact" stay in Savannah! We definitely would love to come back! The breakfast was delicious! No bad comments here at all...definitely want to visit again :D Thank you to the staff at Forsyth Park Inn!
Having stayed at Savannah's Bed & Breakfast ten years ago, I decided to have another go recently. My guest and I opted for a much smaller room this time. The room itself was just fine and cozy, although it was upstairs on the third floor. Not a problem for me, though. The thermostat in my room have me a bit of a problem one night, and wouldn't cool well enough. The next night it was freezing! One evening I came in and the heat was on! A staff member must have done that (by accident, I hope). We were met by Alice the night we arrived, and she was very helpful and friendly. She explained all about the parking situation, and after the first day it was a piece of cake. I visited Savannah at a very busy time, so finding a parking space late at night was sometimes a challenge, but I always found one within a block of the Inn. Breakfast was always a delight each morning. The food was served quickly and with a smile. All servers were very friendly, talkative, and attentive. The cats-in-residence were entertaining as they sauntered through the porch and up and down the steps. One even played in a tree. Very entertaining. The coffee was especially good, and when I found out it was Folger's I almost fell out of my chair. I liked the option of savory vs sweet vs healthy. Nice choice. I didn't partake of the afternoon tea and cookies, but did so on my previous visit. All in all, I would return, and I will certainly recommend to friends and family.
Overall, the stay at Savannah Bed and Breakfast was exceptional. We only had one issue and that was we waited 45 minutes to get our breakfast. We checked in on time, actually a little early, and then we were completely forgotten about. When our food was finally delivered it was cold. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this B & B and would definitely stay again.
I traveled to Savannah with my parents for our first trip to the South from California, and I must say staying at the Forsyth Inn was my favorite part of the trip. We stayed in rooms 10 and 11 in the lower level. Situated in a beautiful location across from Forsyth Park, we had our hot breakfast each morning on the patio while admiring the Spanish Moss in the trees and watching the joggers and families across the street. It was a little bit noisy with traffic, but besides that very serene. The location was so beautiful we always made it back for Sangria and a snack at 5. (A perfect opportunity to rest a bit from the day's walking before heading out to dinner). I had originally wondered if the inn would be too far from the main sites of interest, but we really loved walking through the neighborhood itself and could take the free local shuttle when needed (it picks up a short walk away). Dwayne was a gem, helping us with recommendations and making us feel welcomed and very well taken care of. One of the women in charge of the food even gave great recommendations for vegetarian-friendly restaurants in town. We had an unusual incident with a taxi driver, (definitely a one-off situation) and Allen picked us up without hesitation while Dwayne managed all interactions with the cab company, and even reimbursed us directly on top of getting the cab company to do the same. The people here were great. I'm already missing my claw-toothed bathtub and evening tea. We will certainly come back here on our next visit to Savannah.
The food was to be made to order , but both morning the food was cold , evening cookies were cooked daily but not very good (buy the good frozen cookies if you want it to match your Inn. We didn't even stay for the third morning breakfast we left early. The staff was very nice and friendly enjoyed my interaction with them. Also I really like a hot bath and shower, I never even turned the cold water on and the water was only luke warm. The room was very clean and nice.
I stayed in room 1. Very large and comfortable. The jetted tub was a nice treat after a long day walking. The service was exceptional most of the time. A young girl worked at the front desk on 2 days and directed me to a restaurant which was terrible. Her idea of upscale was not the same as mine. The breakfast was good, fresh and hot but pretty ordinary; pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs & fresh fruit. The late night cookies and infused water was a nice touch. I would suggest they add some camomile or other relaxing tea to the choices. The view from the front porch was spectacular. I happened to be there when the park was in full bloom. The parking was pretty easy and free on the street. Fairly easy walk to downtown and even easier access to the free public bus.
What a charming little spot. Definitely one of my favorite places I have stayed. The history, the hauntedness, the antiques, & the sweet southern hospitality made our stay at the Inn so lovely. We were only there a night and wished we could have stayed longer!
This an old building originally constructed in 1790 so you expect to have lots of creaky stairs and slanted wood floors and it did. Our room, 207 had a 3 inch gap under the door to the room which did not close tight. There were water stains on the ceiling and paint peeling in the bathroom. The TV came in snowy and the wifi was terrible with two bars at the most. The pillows were just plain terrible. The bath still has the old multi-gallon tanks that you have to hold the lever down to flush. Some people will need a step stool like my wife did to get into the bed. Parking: they are short 4 spaces on a one car to a room basis. Several spaces occupy part of the street & part of the sidewalk. You have to move them on Sundays between 4 & 6 AM otherwise the city will ticket you because of street sweeping. The owners do all they can to find you a parking space. It took us 3 days to finally get a space in the Inn's parking lot. The Inn is haunted by three ghosts and all of the ghost tours stop by especially during the 10 to 1 AM time frame. The Inn having both a bar and restaurant (very good food) is also on the pub tour circuit so be prepared for the sound of laughter in the late night early mourning times. None of these things bothered my wife & I. We enjoyed our stay here. Having meet the owners and getting an understand of what it takes to run a place like this we felt they are doing all they can to upgrade and improve the experience. It's a work in progress and we definitely would stay here again.
My girlfriends and I do a yearly trip somewhere and this year we went to Savannah! The Savannah Bed and Breakfast Inn was in a fantastic location to everything we wanted to do, the staff was SO friendly and accommodating, and the room was perfect. We stayed in the General Jackson which had a kitchen and laundry. It was the best home away from home. Next time I come to Savannah.... I know where I'll be staying.
A great location for people that know Savannah well. The room was clean and the breakfast did the trick. The only issue we had was at check-in, maintenance was working on the shower drain (?) in our room. It worked out for us, we just took a walk, but we paid to check in at 3PM and didn't have the room to ourselves until almost 5:30PM. After talking to some friends, I guess most people would find this to be a big deal because we weren't offered anything beyond an initial apology and the work was being completed during the time we were paying for the room.
We were in Savannah for a family Easter weekend - had a great time. The house is very nice - top notch. We tried a couple of restaurants near the house, all were very good. The owners are great. Would highly recommend staying here - when I'm back for the Savannah marathon definitely going to try and stay here again.
Having a kitchen was great.... Owners were extremely personable and helpful in every way. Would highly recommend this B and B ....several very good restauarants are in walking distance and historical Savannah to the riverfront is about a 30 minute walk.
I selected 17hundred based on reviews and this proved to be a great choice. Location is great for walking around town. We enjoyed an excellent dinner in restaurant. Room was comfortable and clean. Parking was great convenience.
Our room was not in the Inn. The B&B is a row of townhouses. It is in a nice location, but our room was in a house several doors away. Had to go outside to get from room to reception and bkfst. The delicious toffee almond square snacks served at 4 led me to believe that bkfst would be delicious. However, the French toast was made with ordinary white bread and not very tasty. I expected better. The choices were limited.
All rooms we have stayed in have a feel of the Old South. This time we chose a larger one with separate bedroom, living area/kitchen. Came in handy for warming up leftovers from Leocci's Italian Restaurant. Disappointing only leaving shampoo in the bathrooms now. Breakfast choices always vary and are very good. Staff is friendly. Cannot find a more convenient spot for walking the city. Parking easy to find.
We've stayed at the Park Manor on multiple occasions and have never failed to be impressed by the hospitality, ambience, cleanliness, and attention to detail. We love the breakfasts, which prepare you for a day of walking and sightseeing around Savannah. In the evening, we look forward to returning "home" to enjoy a brownie and sherry in the elegant Victorian parlor. Maurice and Glen are the ultimate hosts, who cater to their guests every need. And, we've developed a special fondness for "Red", the outdoor cat who might grace you with his presence while you sit in the garden enjoying the sun. But, beware, he may make a stealth run for the front door hoping to enter before you close the door! :-)
Delightful place to stay if you want to immerse yourself in Historic Downtown Savannah. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable and clean accommodation and a great view of Forsyth Park. Easy walking distance from everything we wanted to see and do in the district. Great old house that feels like home.
My wife, 16 year old daughter, and I stayed at the Armstrong's Jenkins House. We could not have been more pleased. It's a clean, nicely appointed 2 story 2 bedroom house. Monique, the owner, is delightful and really made us feel welcome. She made sure we had afternoon snacks, homemade sweets, and wonderful breakfasts. She is so considerate of the guests' privacy, that it's as if a little elf leaves these goodies for you to enjoy when you return from your day's activities. We have stayed in many B&Bs, and this ranks at the top. We enjoy venturing out on our own schedule. Many B&Bs have a scheduled time for breakfast and you are joined by other guests...not at the Armstrong Inns. You are provided with anything you could possibly need, but, just in case, Monique is a phone call and a few minutes away! Should you want to take a trolley tour, a driver will pick you up at your front door and take you to the trolley station. An extra bonus...off street parking. We are so glad we stayed at the Armstrongs'!
Beautiful B&B with lots of charm. I called on a whim while traveling through the area and was lucky enough to land the last room. Lee the innkeeper is a doll and extremely accommodating. My room was well kept, my linens fresh, and my meal.... delicious. I wish I could have stayed longer. If you are in the vicinity I highly recommend you check it out.
We had been talking about coming to Savannah for years, and we finally made it! We stayed in room 11, which has a separate entrance from the back of the house. Our neighbors across the hall had a dog which would bark when we approached our room - I'm assuming it was when the owners were out - but it really didn't affect our stay much, other than one night when the squeaky toy woke me up. Not the inn's fault at all. The room has lots of different levels between the sitting area, bedroom, and bathroom, so if you have issues with that you should be aware. The bathroom is HUGE, and the soaking tub is quite relaxing even without bubbles. Relaxing on the huge front porch is a must. The view of Forsyth Park across the street is breathtaking, especially with the first blooms of the azaleas in full force! The breakfasts, happy hours, and desserts were quite tasty - portions were comfortable...you weren't hungry but you weren't stuffed either. Weekday staff was friendly, but the weekend staff was on a whole other level. We got the story of the inn, 'local' recommendations for dining, and just a warm and welcoming atmosphere from the gentleman manning the house on Saturday and Sunday. We will be back, and would definitely stay at Forsyth Park Inn again.
First time at a bed & breakfast and we loved it! The hospitality was superb. Great location. Very friendly staff and owners. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others visiting savannah!
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.
