1. Mansion on Forsyth Park

A repeat honoree on Conde Nast’s “Best Hotels” lists for both the South and the United States, the Mansion on Forsyth Park is easily Savannah’s most recognizable hotel – and that’s saying something!

Located across the street from Forsyth Park and the Savannah Historic District, the Mansion is a great place to pair the best in modern hotel luxury with a historic Southern gem.


What makes this one of the best hotels in Savannah?

Having been remodeled in 2005, the Mansion on Forsyth Park provides the latest and greatest in décor and amenities throughout the 125-room Victorian Romanesque abode.

Whether you’re relaxing on the lobby’s Versace furniture, enjoying a pampering at Poseidon Spa, or sharpening your knife skills at the Kessler Cooking School, the Mansion on Forsyth Park provides top-shelf amenities in The Hostess City of the South!

2. The Kehoe House

Like many of its counterparts on this list, the Kehoe House is simply lousy with praise and awards. Just this year, this charming Savannah bed & breakfast has been ranked by Trip Advisor as Savannah’s best B&B, America’s 11th most romantic hotel, and America’s 12th best small hotel.

What are you waiting for??


Why stay at this Savannah hotel?

All the Trip Advisor awards are nice – don’t get me wrong – but for my money, the Kehoe House might be one of the most beautiful buildings in Savannah, let alone hotels.

With hard wood floors, antique furniture, and many of the rooms offering private or semi-private balconies and verandahs, it’s easy to see why the suite of Kehoe’s couples, proposal, anniversary, and getaway packages are so popular!

3. Hamilton-Turner Inn

Yet another entry on Trip Advisor’s Top 20 Small Hotels in America, the 17-room inn (well, 16 rooms plus a carriage house option, which is simply too delightful), the Hamilton-Turner Inn offers one of the best boutique aesthetics anywhere in Savannah.

Though the different rooms each have unique designs, each offers luxury touches including walk-in showers, antique four-poster beds, and incredibly gorgeous 11-foot windows!


Why should you choose this Savannah hotel?

As special as the Hamilton-Turner Inn is inside, the unrivaled location it has is even more impressive. Guests at the Hamilton-Turner are within walking distance of many top Savannah attractions, including Lafayette Square and all the top restaurants, antique shops, and ornate cathedrals Savannah has to offer!

4. Eliza Thompson House Savannah

Like many Savannah buildings, the 170-year-old Eliza Thompson House has a reputation for being haunted, but there’s nothing spooky about this southern gem!

With 25 rooms across the main and carriage houses wrapped around a gorgeous interior courtyard (and koi pond!), the Eliza Thompson House offers classic Southern charm just steps away from the center of Savannah’s historic district.


What makes this hotel one of Savannah's best?

Beyond just being a beautiful hotel in a beautiful city, the Eliza Thompson House has a series of services and packages that truly go the extra mile.

All guests are treated to a deluxe continental courtyard breakfast and hors d’oeurves each day during the evening reception. For one of the best deals going, stay 4 nights at Eliza Thompson and get 15% off the normal rate with a champagne welcome to boot!

5. The Marshall House

Having first opened its doors in 1851, the Marshall House treasures its place as one of Savannah’s most historically significant hotels (most guided tours stop outside the Marshall House to discuss its history and, yes, its potentially haunted status!).

Today, however, the Marshall House benefits from a complete renovation in 1999 that earned its rightful place among Savannah’s best luxury boutique hotel options!


Why stay here? 

Despite its major renovation at the turn of the century, the Marshall House kept much that was beautiful about the building, including its authentic claw-foot tubs, wrought-iron balconies, and numerous 19th century floor-to-ceiling windows.

Want to learn more about the Marshall House’s history during your stay? Check out the free wine and cheese receptions Thursday and Sunday afternoons in the gorgeous Marshall House library!
