My wife of 52-yrs and I wanted to be within walking distance of sites within the historic district of Savannah. Forsyth Park Inn is perfectly located. The staff quickly charmed us with their southern hospitality and desire to make our stay memorable. During the evening we would sit on the balcony, sipping wine and listening to live music from across the street in Forsyth Park. Elegant, enchanting and mystical is how we would describe the Inn. Life is to short to not treat your self to the best.
The Green Palm Inn was a true delight. The hostess, Diane, was so helpful and showed us the map to be sure we were oriented. She fixed marvelous breakfasts and had snacks in the afternoon too. We could not have been happier. It was our first experience in Savannah and her B & B was marvelous. We have stayed in B & B's for more than 30 years. It was nice to see one that had not lost it's charm.
When I called the Inn to confirm my check in time, after arranging our reservations for the weekend SEVERAL weeks prior (as well as receiving a confirmation email and paying for our stay in full), the employee that answered the phone informed me ...as I'm driving on the interstate to their location ...that they double booked the room and offered me no alternative solution or assistance. Unfortunately this resulted in a huge inconvenience ...the staff was very rude and unprofessional when discussing this issue via telephone ...it's quite a shame as we frequent Tybee often
Not just bed and breakfast but also delicious afternoon hors d'oeuvres cookies and fruit with wine and, most importantly, great company. Diane is a great hostess and a wealth of priceless information when it comes to anything Savannah.
Stayed for one night last week. Wonderful period inn in a great location. Rooms are well appointed and spotless. Very nice breakfast, and afternoon wine and snacks are a lovely treat. Leave your car in the free parking spot, and walk to all the historic district has to offer. We'll hopefully be back for a longer stay soon.
I spent 6 nights at the Tybee Island Inn. The inn has a magnificent oak tree draped in Spanish moss to welcome you inside. Lee made wonderful, filling breakfasts each morning. She was helpful in giving us suggestions of the best places to eat on the island. It's just a 5 minute walk to the beach. Overall, our stay was great, and I would recommend the Tybee Island Inn to anyone who wants a peaceful, relaxing stay.
My husband and I spent two nights at the Green Palm Inn. We were met with an open door and very gracious hostess Diane. She introduced us to historic Savannah with a map, highlighting various areas. The Inn is beautifully appointed and the hospitality is warm and genuine. Our room was fantastic with plenty of room for clothes and toiletries. A jetted tub, attached magnifying mirror, wonderful soap hightlight the bathroom. The bed could not be more comfortable and the sheets were overly comfy. Breakfasts were terrific, flavorful and wonderfully presented. A bonus was afternoon appetizers/cookies and beverages. Diane served up terrific Savannah hospitality. We so enjoyed our first visit to Savannah and looking forward to returning to the Green Palm Inn.
The service was amazing! We were treated like royalty. The staff was one step ahead of us and always so polite. The room was spacious and clean, the food was delicious and presented beautifully. The fresh cut flowers on our table on the porch each morning was a lovely touch that made everything even better. The Concierge went out of his way on more than one occasion to provide information and reservations for us; he helped coordinate our dinner and carriage ride. We hope to go back to Savannah someday, and when we do we will be staying here. Hands down one of the best B&B experiences we have ever had. Thank you Forsyth Inn for your wonderful true southern hospitality!
We recently spent four days in Savannah,our first trip,and chose 17Hundred90 which proved to be an outstanding choice. I can't remember when I have experienced an inn where the room was so appropriate for the time and staff so ACCOMODATING. I needed a handicapped room and beginning with Grumpy (which he wasn't) they went out of their way to see that we had all that we needed. The food in the dining room was superb. If we go back to Savannah,we would not consider staying anywhere else, regardless of the price. Thanks to you all for making our visit so enjoyable. Dale and Steve Rm 314
Last year my husband and I came for our honeymoon. So this year when we found out my brother was graduating basic training for the army, not too far away we decided to come back . Both times we stayed it was wonderful. Always clean and very polite people. It was nice to be able to walk to the beach and restaurants and then to come back and be able to relax. Highly recommend this place to anyone!
My wife and I recently stayed at Foley House in August 2017, and we had a wonderful visit. From he moment you arrive you are made to feel welcome and at home. The staff are warm and friendly and there is just not enough space to write how wonderful hey made our stay. Foley house is beautiful, serene, and relaxing. Classical music is using playing in the downstairs rooms creating a completely relaxing atmosphere. Afternoon Ice teas and deserts are served between 3-5pm all of which are wonderfully delicious. Breakfast at Foley is for lack of any better words fantastic. We elected the Haunted Savannah Tour, and we were not disappointed. If you are even an amateur paranomalist you will not be disappointed with Foley—we got crystal clear EVP's in our room. If you are not into the paranormal, don't let this frighten you. We experienced nothing harmful at Foley, rather quite the opposite! In closing Foley made our Savannah trip memorable and perfect. We will will go back in future without hesitation, in fact, I would prefer to stay at Foley than any other place in Savannah! -Will Lloyd-
My mom and I went to Savannah for one night and we didn't know much about the city so after doing little research, we decided on Forsyth Park Inn. We checked in during happy hour time and were able to have a glass of wine and some delicious snacks while waiting on the gorgeous front porch for another party to be checked in. The staff was the absolute friendliest and beyond helpful with getting us a reservation for dinner. We were explained how to get through the entire town and every single spot worth stopping to check out. One of the things I liked most about the location was that it allowed us to walk from the front of the park all the way through to the river and see every square along that way in one straight road. I'd 10% stay here again. The room was so cute and so spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Great security to get into the Inn so you feel safe. Thanks guys!
My mother and I stayed here in July 2017 and had a phenomenal time. The rooms are gorgeous, the decor is perfect for such a stately and airy home. The yard in the back is perfect for a book in the early morning (or glass of wine in the evening!) before walking to one of the restaurants around Savannah's downtown. We loved being close to Forsyth Park while still feeling like we were away from the noise of busier streets. There isn't an on-site restaurant but they stocked the kitchen with coffee and goodies, and a bottle of wine, which was perfect for us!
Our stay at Forsyth Inn was wonderful. The home is beautiful, breakfast was spectacular and Dwayne was great. It was so nice to have a full breakfast served to us on the veranda. When we checked in Dwayne gave us a very nice review of city. His recommendations were great.
My sister and I visited July 24-26. The breakfast was delicious with a variety of food to choose from. Bryan and Jan were delightful host. They were friendly and helpful. We were very pleased with our room. We plan to return to savannah and will certainly stay at roussell gardens.
Our first trip to Savannah and staying in a B&B. We just loved it! The lady that runs/owns the place is wonderful and helpful. We enjoyed her homemade breakfasts and conversations. The room and bathroom were very clean and set beautifully. For our return trip to Savannah I think we will be staying here again!
Very nice location and great staff. Garden was very enjoyable. Snacks, wine and food were All great! The price was reasonable for the area. We reserved the room with the private patio. The lawn furniture in the photos were not the same in person. Paint was peeling on the flooring. Looked unstable but was fine to walk on. Next time I will reserve a room overlooking the park. The rocking chairs and view from the front porch was awesome. Will visit again and will recommend to my friends.
We enjoyed our weekend stay at this charming B&B. Mrs. Diane the inn keeper was a fantastic hostess. Her breakfast each morning was delicious, and we especially loved all her homemade cookies & treats in the afternoon. The Sago Palm room that we stayed in was beautifully decorated & very clean. The location of the B&B was in walking distance of all the activities we had planned in Savannah. We will definitely plan another visit to the Green Palm Inn!!
This was our best "girls' weekend" getaway yet! From booking to arrival to service to cleanliness to the fabulous breakfast every day, Savannah Bed and Breakfast Inn was absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much for a great long weekend!
I had a lovely stay at the Savannah Bed & Breakfast Inn. The accommodations were lovely. I especially enjoyed the covered porch and courtyard. The staff was courteous and helpful, even when I didn't check in until 11:00 pm! It is in a great location - an easy walk to most of the historic district. I felt very safe as a woman traveling by myself.
This was the first time we ever stayed at a B&B. What an amazing experience! Diane certainly spoils her guests and made us feel right at home. She is so informative and assisted us with what to see and do while in Savannah. Our room was comfortable and the B&B is close to many things. It was the perfect weekend get-away.
My husband and I have stayed at Green Palm Inn several times over the last ten years. Green Palm Inn is more comfortable and appealing to us than any of the hotels in the area. The breakfast are wonderful as are the afternoon homemade snacks and wine hour. Diane is a great host. Highly recommend!
Diane does an amazing job running her B&B. The house is lovely and located conveniently in the historical district and near the river. The breakfasts are delicious and ample: we didn't need to eat lunch til late afternoon. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
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.
Especialidades culinarias en Savannah
La ciudad cuenta con restaurantes para todos los gustos y bolsillos, muchos de ellos situados en la zona de los bed and breakfast de Savannah. En cualquier caso, esta es la ciudad perfecta para degustar los típicos platos de la gastronomía sureña, como el delicioso pollo frito al estilo sureño o los tomates verdes fritos.
Eventos destacados en Savannah
El evento anual más destacado de la ciudad es la celebración el 17 de marzo del día de San Patricio, con una fiesta de carnaval (la segunda mayor del país) que puede recordar al Mardi Gras que se celebra cada año en Bourbon Street en Nueva Orleans. Los primeros sábados de cada mes se celebra el “First Saturday on the River”, una celebración familiar en la histórica River Street, con ferias de arte y artesanía a la orilla del río, el evento ideal para disfrutar en familia.

El clima en esta ciudad es excelente durante todo el año, con veranos cálidos e inviernos con temperaturas muy tolerables.
