About

Named among the "Top 10 B&Bs for the Holidays, 2011" by BedandBreakfast, the Gingerbread Victorian (circa 1897) is also among the most affordable and smallest of the top-rated city bed-and-breakfast inns in Savannah. Here affordable Savannah travel is made more special with a "fresh, local and seasonal" hot breakfast with fresh fruit, homemade finger desserts in the afternoon, and wine paired with light hors d'eouvres for pre-dinner appetizers. On daily strolls or invigorating walks, guests love the inn's friendly assistance, southern cuisine, and relaxing atmosphere while enjoying Savannah as a local insider. Beckoning throughout downtown Savannah are classic to eclectic art galleries, world-class mansion museums, Deep South history, architecture and gardens, festive celebrations of diverse local cultures, youthful art school students, and garden landscapes that encourage escapism. This Greene Square neighborhood inn features memory-making homeyness in its four spacious guest rooms with king or queen, four-poster or sleigh bed. Originally renovated in 1998, the historic inn's new private baths feature jacuzzi bath or body-spray shower. A cozy alternative to Savannah hotels, Green Palm Inn is only 4 city blocks from the scenic Savannah riverfront, convenient to boutique downtown shopping, fine restaurants, chic cafes, Georgia Historical Society, music events, film festivals & City Market.

Would Stay No Where Else in Savannah!

5 on March 02, 2015

Tim and I have stayed in the Green Palm Inn numerous times, by ourselves and with friends in the last two years. We "Would Stay No Where Else" while visiting in Savannah. No matter what time you arrive at the Inn, 2:00 in the afternoon or 3:00 in the morning, you feel welcomed! The Inn itself is quaint, warm and relaxing, the rooms are comfortable and beautiful, the full breakfast each morning is amazing and there are no words to describe how gracious Diane and her Staff are! If you are traveling to Savannah or through Savannah, make your reservation! You won't regret it!


A WONDERFUL retreat in Savannah,

5 on July 22, 2014

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.


Cozy, comfortable, and amazing breakfasts!

As a single gal, I felt welcome and taken care of at the Green Palm... Diane is an attentive, but not overbearing, hostess who will give you honest advice about what to see in Savannah, and who makes the best B&B breakfasts I've ever had... elaborate French toast, fresh fruit, wonderful smoothies, etc... plus, there are hors d'ouevres every afternoon. My room was cozy and the bed quite comfortable. The inn is on the edge of the historic district, so you'll do a bit more walking than if you stayed at other places, but the district is so small that it hardly makes a difference if you are an average walker. A sweet place to stay and a relative bargain in pricey historic Savannah.

Innkeeper Response

Diane and Cheryl made our 10th anniversary stay at the Green Palm Inn one to remember. From the great treats and wine in the afternoon to calling and booking dinner reservations for us. I stay in B&B's in Savannah 5-6 times per year, and I will definitely return to the Green Palm.

We loved our stay at the Green Palm Inn. The staff was great and very helpful with all our questions. It was our first visit weekend trip to Savannah, but it won't be our last. I'm already planning our next trip. We really enjoyed our breakfast and afternoon conversations with the other house guests and Diane. There is so much to do and experience. Bring your walking shoes, I loved walking around town and take in all the wonderful scenery. Thanks Green Palm Inn!
