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!
This was my first trip to this area, and Dunham Farm proved to be the perfect introduction. Spectacular natural environment,interesting & informative co-owners (Meredith & Laura) and breakfasts were out of this world delicious! A couple of days at Dunham Farm provided a sense of well-being and a new appreciation of nature & life. Would love to visit again! Joan from San Diego
The staff was helpful with local information and made every effort to meet any of our requests. They were friendly and concerned about our having a good time. Savannah is a very walkable city and the location of this B&B was excellent. We did not need or car once we arrived.
We recently had the opportunity to visit Savannah and stay at the Park Avenue Manor. We couldn't have been more pleased. The B&B was beautiful, clean, comfortable and the hosts Maurice and Glenn were friendly and welcoming. Our breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented. A top notch experience indeed!
We stayed here for just one night, but really loved the old charm and new comforts of the guesthouse. Although the buildings and decorations are old, the Inn is updated to include some amenities like a TV and refrigerator in your room. Our room also had a great Jacuzzi tub and steam shower. The staff was very welcoming and helpful!
We enjoyed our stay as it was very relaxing, liked the neighborhood location, not in commercial area. Nice to have opportunity to experience ambiance of two different rooms. Our selected room was only available for 2 nights so B&B assign us different room for the first night. Very clean, bathrooms excellent, staff friendly. Only disappointment was the breakfast. Below standard from other B&B's we stayed in. Breakfast for us is a big part of staying at a B&B. All three days the breakfast was not hot and seemed to be pre-made and small portions. Wouldn't consider it gourmet and unfortunately made us feel like we didn't get the full value of staying at a B&B.
The staff was first-rate all around. I arrived early, before check-in, and the staff was nice enough to let me store my luggage at the Bed and Breakfast until check in. The gentleman who checked me in was incredibly polite and helpful, despite the fact that he was really busy at the time. He juggled all facets of his job seamlessly. The waitstaff were all super nice and the food was all cooked to order properly and done very well, including plate presentation. My room was kept extremely clean and was tip-top upon my arrival. Your staff is amazing and they all helped make my stay in Savannah a great one. Thank you all so much!
We stayed on the 3rd floor across the street from the main inn. The stairs leading up to the room did not appear to have been vacuumed for a while. The room's area rug and floor was not very clean. There was old chewing gum under the corner of the armoire that remained there until we left. the room description indicated that it had been renovated; however, it did not appear complete. I suggest more private window coverings in the bathroom. Right now there are sheer curtains. We had complimentary breakfast which was okay but the pastries tasted stale the second morning. The breakfast room floor was dirty. There was the same pen cap in the middle of the floor that I had seen the previous day. I will say that the service at check-in was excellent. We were early so they did all of the paperwork at that time so that we could tour and just pick up the key when we returned later in the day.
We received a gift certificate for Armstrong Inns as a retirement gift. Once I contacted Monique, our trip was easily planned and we reserved the Tattnall House. The house is located In a beautiful and quiet neighborhood of Savannah and is within walking distance of all of Savannah's attractions. We loved the private courtyard and enjoyed having our breakfast out there. One of the best parts of the trip was anticipating the breakfasts that were delivered each night for the next morning. Monique's pastries, tarts, quiches and other offerings were absolutely delicious! We loved our stay at the Tattnall house and really enjoyed our visit to Savannah.
Stayed at Inn for 2 nights. We had a Groupon so the value was great. The courtyard was simply beautiful. We spent our nights out there with some wine. And the breakfasts were delicious. Everything was great and the Inn keeper was so helpful, but the rooms were a little outdated. And not in that charming inn sort of way.
My husband and I were attending a wedding in Savannah and decided last minute to book a room, rather than stay with family, which didn't leave us many options. When we arrived at the Bed and Breakfast we were very pleased! The room was great and the staff was very helpful. We loved the home feeling. We have both agreed that we will definately be going back here when we can break away from the kiddos again!
We just stayed here last week and it was wonderful. The Inn was gorgeous, and very well kept. We had a a room on the third floor that had the most comfortable bed I have every slept on. It was very soft. The room was also very clean and beautifully decorated and even had books waiting in case you forgot to bring one of your own and needed something to read. The staff was very friendly and gave great recommendations for dinner. They also pointed out all the cats that the inn has outside to me because that is one of the things I was very interested in. The food over breakfast was just fancy enough with a nice comforting taste. Everything about our stay here was wonderful!
The Ballastone was a great overall experience. It was nice to see Savannah but staying at the Inn, sitting in the parlor and talking with guests and staff and enjoying a great atmosphere was the highlight of our trip. This was top notch all the way.
This is a charming B&B. The hosts are very caring about your visit. They do so much to make your visit easy. The rooms were big and homey. We liked the colonial room,very bright. Make sure you visit the courtyard and say hi to "red".
We stayed in 201 and couldn't have asked for a better room. It was huge and made us feel like the queen and king! We never got in our car until we checked out after 3 nights. My husband had a little "experience" with what felt like someone sitting beside him on the edge of the bed in the middle of the night. This was AFTER waking from his "strange" dream of feeling like something heavy pinning him down. This is Mr. Skeptical I'm talking about (haha). The next day we found out Anna likes the guys and there were only two ladies staying in Anna's room. It didn't keep us from having a fabulous time in Savannah! We will be back and hope to stay in the same room. The staff was wonderful. Oh, my husband definitely earned his T SHIRT we purchased on the way out!
If your expectations are not very high and you want to be in the middle of the historic district within walking distance to most of the sights then this place will be just right. It is a bit rustic and quaint however the decor does need some updating and it could be cleaner in the common areas. The staff was polite and respectful I would not call them friendly. Overall it was a nice stay and it was a good value.
The Dresser-Palmer is a very historic mansion that has been nicely updated to modern amenities. It is very close to Forsythe park, which is very nice for walks or running or just hanging out. That means it is a bit of a hike from the river, if that is what you like. The breakfasts were nice but not outstanding. The staff is very nice and helpful. We had one of the less expensive rooms and it was nice, though it is entered from outside, which can be a problem in the rain. It is a little bare-bones compared to some of the other rooms but it is probably quieter than others. All-on-all a very nice stay.
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The location was convenient for exploring Savannah by foot and bike. The room was clean and cozy, and the breakfast here is delicious! The first night we had shrimp and gritx and it is by far the best I've ever had!
Absolutely the best stay imaginable. I could go on and on about our stay here but it's to early in the day to kick my feet up in front of the fireplace with my glass of wine just yet. Needless to say The Old Savannah Inn was that place where when your reading a really good book you just can not put it down! Savannah is truly breathtaking but without the right place to stay it just does not make for a wonderful picture perfect ending. My visit was truly that scene you only see in the movies. I never knew that would actually be possible. Kathleen runs this place all by her self and I do not know how she pulls it off! She has got to be the real life Wonder Woman but will not ever reveal this. Probably a good thing though because then her secret to life would no longer work. I will definitely be back God willing but next time I'm staying for a month! Ok a week but it sounded nice. Kudos to this women and her really cute friend Cooper x's 10!!! - Christina & Haley
What an outstanding B ann B . Immaculate, cozy, beautiful, it felt like being home.Porch and views were lovely. Wonderful hospitality one of the nicest B and B O ever stayed at. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality Sandy and. Clarence Hart
This was our first time in Savannah and as soon as we drove up the beauty of the house took my away. Keith took us to the top carriage house unit and it looked like it came out of a magazine. Everything in the apartment is tastefully done and in keeping with the historic charm. Everything from the bed linens and towels to items that are left for your enjoyment, yogurt, bottled water, juice, coffee, tea etc., really make you feel like you are in a 5 star boutique hotel. Keith and Jim really make you feel welcome and at home from the minute you arrive. The location is a good walk into town but a most enjoyable one - if you need to take a break have breakfast or lunch at Clary's. If we ever get another opportunity to visit Savannah we will plan it so we stay at Galloway House - any other establishment would have a difficult time measuring up.
We stayed in the "Guest House" which is a building half a block across. It has three floors and only one room per floor. Each floor also includes a living room area that you are free to use. It's not private to each room but given the each floor has one it almost is. The room and living room are decorated in antique furniture that's in excellent condition. The ceilings are painted. Our room did have a crack on the ceiling that honestly looked a little scary. But they assured us it was safe. Apparently there was a flood issue and I'm sure they are trying to see if they can repair it without damaging the art on the ceiling. The only real complaint is the shower did smell kind of moldy. The shower actually had some black dots on the ceiling. It's supposed to be a steam shower. I didn't care for it. The towels also smelled kind of funny. They changed them right away but then they seemed to grab that smell. The bathroom is huge and includes a beautiful hot tub. More good things, the room has a private balcony with a view of a beautiful garden next door. Loved this city! The included breakfast is coffee, juice, milk, yogurt and a very nice, big selection of pastries. They call it continental but I would say, at least continental plus. We also had brunch at the restaurant and the food was excellent. The bar also makes great drinks. The service all around excellent. Ryan at the front desk was extremely helpful. He helped us find a space for our huge van. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience a true Historic Savannah stay. The location couldn't be any better. Everything is a short walk away.
My husband and I stayed in the Telfair room and were very impressed by how cozy and comfortable it was. We were a bit underwhelmed by the breakfast of 2 pancakes and 2 slices of bacon but I rounded mine out with yogurt. The morning staff was also a bit short, but there is a lot going on at that time so I can understand. Overall it is a lovely place to stay and we will be coming back.
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.
