Make our Savannah hotels your base for discovering the gracious charms of this remarkably preserved antebellum city, where it costs little to appreciate the beauty of its historic district and sample the Low Country seafood.
The sun-dappled, tree-shaded boulevards of Savannah are yours to explore when you stay at our central hotels in Savannah. Elegant mansions drowsing under silvery Spanish moss sprang up during the region’s 19th-century cotton boom. Impeccably laid out around a grid of 21 green squares, this Georgia port city has the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States. Don’t miss the Owen-Thomas House, an English Regency gem from 1816. Tour Mercer House, the decadent mansion that starred in the best-selling book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Slip into haunting Bonaventure Cemetery, where gardenia blossoms sweeten the air. If time is limited, hop on an Old Town Trolley tour of the historic district.
Proximity to the sea means restaurant menus are stocked with fresh local seafood. When you stay at our Savannah hotels you can dine on sweet creek shrimp simmered with grits and country ham or plump oysters roasted over an open fire. Sample “hoppin’ John”—a regional specialty of smoky rice and peas eaten for good luck on New Year’s. Walk off your meal on a breezy stroll along River Walk on the Savannah River. Savannah’s old cotton warehouses along River Street have been fashionably converted into restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. You won’t have to dress up to join the party, however; Savannah’s laidback lifestyle carries over into evening. Stay in one of our Savannah hotels, and settle in to the leisurely pace.
