First time to Savannah, went online and read all the great reviews, so we decided to book a room. The reviews were accurate. We enjoyed the coziness, everyone who worked there was great and so helpful. Parking was easy, breakfast was excellent and the view from our room was spectacular! We will definitely be coming back!
The photos don't even do it justice! It is a magnificent place to stay. We stayed in the main house that is meticulously appointed! Comfy beds! They had a bottle of wine set out for us and some bagels and yogurt for breakfast. This is NOT the type of B&B where they cook for you. They leave you alone, which we liked. If you stay for longer than a weekend you will have to replenish the bagels or what ever you want to eat. The only improvement I could see is that they needed some kind of small table or something in the bathroom that you could put your toiletries on. There was NO room next to the sink. You had to use the top of the toilet seat or the floor. But the place was immaculate and really comfortable! I would go back in a heartbeat!
My friend and I spent two nights at the Galloway House and left wishing we could stay at a week. Great room, great city, great weekend! The room we stayed in is actuallyva studio apartment on the third floor. It is pretty high up but that allowed for a nice view or the surrounding homes and tree canopy. Yogurt, granola bars, coffee beans, muffins, bagels, butter, cream cheese, bottled water, and a bottle of wine were provided. Room has a washer and dryer, full kitchen, comfortable living room with a large flat screen tv, and the best bed I have ever slept on. The Secret and Famous Walking Tour is a must as is a visit to Savannah Smiles Dueling Piano Bar. The Savannah River Admiral's Dinner Cruise was wonderful. Bonaventure Cemetery was a great place for a self guided tour filled with peace, beauty, and history. Thank you Galloway House! We will be back!
I LOVE the Park Avenue Manor and Maurice and Glenn. I've stayed 4 times and each time I feel like I am family. They are welcoming, gracious hosts who treat me like royalty. The manor is Victorian-period, beautifully decorated, rooms are painted in wonderful hues, and the breakfasts are always delicious. They have coffee and sherry (my favorite!) available 7/24. I stay for the Half Marathon and they so thoughtfully provide 'goody bags' for the runners and walkers to take to the start line. They are conveniently located right next to Forsyth Park, which is the finish line location. How great is that? Love the Manor, love these guys! Peg from Gloucester Point VA
We stayed at the Tybee Island Inn, first time at a B & B. We couldn't have been more happy at our decision to book this place. It lived up to the comfort of the the inn as well as the delicious breakfast made by their awesome chef! We will be visiting again when going back to the island! We loved it!
What a wonderful Place to stay!!! Great location for all of Historic Savannah! Breakfast was Great and the service superb. Very friendly staff and great hospitality. Would love to stay again. Chico California
I stayed for a weekend with my mom. The only issue we really had was with the stairs. To get to the Camellia room, you must walk down a narrow metal staircase and then back up another. She has arthritis and vertigo so this was a small problem. If I saw those stairs, I would have picked another room. Also the first night I had no hot water and the hairdryer kept shutting off. The hardwood floor was sandy, we kept our socks on. The room showed two twin beds but we had a king. Staff claimed there were complaints about that and the pictures were old. They were friendly and food was good and cooked to order.
We had a wonderful stay. The staff was very attentive, the breakfasts were great and the bed comfy. I especially appreciated Colin having breakfast ready at 5:00 AM for those guests running in the race that morning.
This is an excellent place to stay! We stayed in the Jackson Suite which had two bedrooms, a sitting area, full kitchen with washer & dryer and a private patio. The bath was small but had everything you need. Everything was as advertised. Great rate for a suite. Staff were very helpful. Will stay here again.
Amazing breakfasts with biscuits better than even those at the pink house or grimaldis. The room was lovely and the staff so friendly. An absolutely wonderful stay. They even called to say I'd left my shoes (that I love) and shipped them back to my house in new York within 3 days. Fab! Highly recommend and you can't beat the location.
Books on the shelves in the bathroom and on the night stand beside the bed. The four poster was both beautiful and comfortable. The beautiful city parks and river were in walking distance. I will definitely return to this beautiful Inn.
Our room was wonderful: charming and spacious with lovely furniture, I was a tiny bit disappointed in the house restaurant's somewhat limited dinner menu. My red fish dish was perfectly prepared but I was put off by the plain minute rice accompanying it. My spouse's crab bisque was excellent. Commercially prepared dinner rolls were brightened by the yummy honey butter. I noted that there seemed to be a very hectic atmosphere as staffing appeared lacking. Maybe someone called off? We had to park in the street but that was not a problem. Locals visit the bar and were friendly, bar service here was excellent even though we staggered in after a two hour ghost tour (exhilarated and thirsty), five minutes before closing. We enjoy the walkability of Savannah and we would stay here again.
17Hundred90 hosted a wonderful Birthday Weekend for my wife and me. The accommodations on the third floor of the guest house made for two comfortable evenings in a historic setting in one of America's most beautiful cities. Walking distance to many sites in the downtown area, accommodating staff and a lite breakfast to whet your appetite before the next culinary expedition. I would recommend it to anyone.
The staff, from the concierge to the breakfast servers and chefs, went out of their way to be accommodating and helpful. The street side rooms are a bit noisy, which is to be expected in such an old structure, and the steps leading up to the rooms are steep and narrow. The overall experience was delightful, and we'd definitely choose this inn again.
absolutely lovely, charming, well appointed b and b. Monique is a wonderful, inviting hostess and the staff is so vey helpful. we had noise trouble with the rude people above us as we stayed on the bottom floor of the carriage house. not good noise insulation. and while I'd choose this b and b over and again, I'd not stay on the bottom floor of this house or else be very clear with the staff about expectations of the people staying above you.
One of the most beautiful and comfortable bed and breakfast places in all my years of traveling. A superb place full of history and atmosphere. A fabulous changing breakfast served everyday in a wonderful dining room. Staying here was like traveling back in time.
Well, we didn't see the first ghost but this being our first trip to Savannah, we couldn't have picked a better place to rest our weary heads. The entire staff here were incredible, helpful in every way. It felt as though we were in the lap of luxury but with the kindness and gentility that only this southern town can bring. We will be back and we know exactly where we'll be staying.
This was a perfect place. Quiet and cozy and the garden is beautiful. Keith the owner was nice and accommodating on what ever you might need. The kitchen was well stocked if you wanted to cook (we didn't) and there was more than enough muffins, OJ, yogurt and bagels. The bottle of wine left on the kitchen was a very beautiful touch! Great location and plenty of parking. We will definitely return to this Bed & Breakfast when we go back to Savannah!
This was our first time staying at any B&B. We wanted to do something different for our anniversary. I must say it is a great experience. The Forsyth is an excellent property right across from Forsyth Park. It was nice sitting on the veranda and having breakfast, coffee, or drinks in the afternoon and just watching the people and the park. It's a great Victorian house with a lot of character that makes you feel like you are really experiencing what Savannah is all about. We stayed in room 6 since the better, park view rooms on the second floor were taken. It was nice enough and they had a stay one night, get the second night half price, which made it about the same as staying at the Embassy Suites or other comparable places. Make sure you check the web site or ask about the specials they have going on during your stay and you could save quite a bit. It's walking distance to a lot of the interesting architecture and squares, and just a short taxi drive to city market and the river area (walking is also doable if you have the time and energy). Breakfast was always good every morning with some pretty good recipes. The staff was very accommodating and will do whatever it takes to meet your needs. I'll stay there again when traveling to Savannah. P.S. I didn't know this until we were about to check out, but supposedly the place is haunted by a friendly teenage girl. I'm not a big believer in ghosts, but a few strange things happened while we were there like lamps flickering and my wife felt something like lace brushing against her legs and feet a couple of times without having any prior knowledge of the haunting. Pretty cool.
Thank God we chose to stay at this hotel for a real treat. The room was great, very comfortable bed and a good sized bathroom. The only bad thing was the outside noise later on in the evening. Lovely light breakfast of pastries and bagels, plenty to eat. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would certainly stop here again.
My wife and I visited Savannah for our honeymoon. All the positive reviews lead us to the Park Avenue Manor and it exceeded all of our expectations. Glenn and Maurice were fantastic, they were always able for questions, made great suggestions and really made us feel at home. The building is wonderfully decorated. Our room (the Savannah Room) was a nice size. Comfortable bed, private bath with updated fixtures, toilet and shower. They have a great little enclosure back yard with a couple water fountains that was prefect to relax in after a long pay of sightseeing, if you go make sure you say hi to Red for us (Glenn and Maurice's outdoor B&B cat)! The location was great, it's roughly a mile to the river (very easy walk) we took a new route each day to get up there and were able to see so much more of this beautiful city. Highly recommended!
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.

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.
