Cheers Sippin Gypsy Team Vodka! This post comes to you while enjoying my Sippin Gypsy Peach Sorbet Sparkler! In a word, Savannah is enchanting. Her sleepy squares and streets lined with beautiful Live Oak trees draped in a veil of moss make you feel dreamy (and relieved if ducking under them for a break from the southern sun!) The hotels and inns that Savannah offers are the epitome of southern hospitality. I find myself comparing my stays in other hotels and inns to my experiences in Savannah. The hotels and inns I selected below were chosen for this list based on the trifecta of a beautiful ambiance, cleanliness and comfort, and the hospitality of the staff.
1. Hamilton Turner Inn
This bed and breakfast style inn is my favorite place in Savannah. The historic home is built facing the Lafayette Square next to the Cathedral of John the Baptist. Each room preserves classic southern elegance. The Hamilton Turner Inn is ideally located just a few blocks from most of the shops, restaurants and museums in the area. Each morning we were indulged with a splendid breakfast, and in the evenings the Inn offers a wine reception with hor d'oeuvres. I would not advise this inn if traveling with children, save this escape for a special getaway with your sweetheart or a girls weekend.
2. The Mansion on Forsyth Park
This beautiful hotel reinstated my faith in small chain hotels. Owned by the Kessler Group, this hotel blends luxury and art with an amazing staff that is attentive and sincere. The rooms are spacious and inviting with touches of art everywhere and welcomes you in with soothing jazz music and ambient mood lighting from a chandelier. This impressive hotel faces Forsyth Park which leaves you a hearty walk to the rest of the locations you would probably frequent during your stay, however the hotel offers a shuttle to and from their sister location down by the river. If staying on this property, indulge yourself at the Poseidon Spa.
3. The Marshall House
Another great hotel in the heart of Savannah. The Marshall House preserves its historic elegance and places you in quick and easy access to everything. Situated directly on Broughton St, you can easily stroll to an abundance of shops, restaurants and bars. Each room highlighted individual details and was a great layout if traveling with a group or with children.
