The Green Palm Inn was a fantastic choice for our quick weekend getaway. Close to everything in Historic Savannah. The owner goes above and beyond, and truly made us feel like a extension of her family. We are already planning our return trip to Savannah and the number one think we are looking at is availability of the Green Palm Inn.
We enjoyed 2 nights as guests at the Inn. Diane was so helpful in planning our days exploring Savannah. The breakfasts were delicious, plentiful, beautiful, and uniquely Southern. We enjoyed the location due to being in easy walking distance to the historic area. Another per is that just around the corner is Cha Bella, a wonderful restaurant for the evening meal!!
Although we were only able to stay for two nights, I would have been willing to move in forever. The amenities and size of the suite were both fantastic, and the location was wonderful. One block to Mrs. Wilkes Boardinghouse, two to Cleary's, three to the Crystal Beer Parlor, all for top-notch [and reasonably-priced] food and beverage. Three minutes to Monterey Square, and five to Forsythe Park. Joan (and her assistant, Miss Ann) were unbelievably accommodating, even arranging to send me several items I had left behind after my departure. An absolutely wonderful experience!!!!
The location was very convenient to local sights & activities, the facilities were well done and very comfortable. I would recommend this establishment to anyone I knew who was going to Savannah.
My sweet husband took me to Savannah for my 50th birthday. He booked the Foley House a couple weeks in advance due to recommendations from friends. My birthday could not have been spent anywhere more beautiful. Our room, the inn itself, the staff, the delicious hand-made breakfast and afternoon snacks where just incredible. And the fact that the inn is located on a beautiful square was just icing on the cake. This was Southern hospitality at is finest.
Service was outstanding along with great food. The rooms were very clean. We were comfortable. The courtyard was beautiful with the pond and flowers in bloom. However, the cottage that one of our sons stayed in was next to an outside patio with people talking loud late at night. It was difficult for our grandchildren to get to sleep. The other 3 rooms we had were exceptional and beautiful. Definitely would love to return.
Perfect location, beautiful room and good breakfast! You also receive a parking pass for your stay. That's gold in Savannah. We could not be happier with our stay and would stay again! Close to restaurants and shops, in the heart of the historic district.
Our stay at Joan's on Jones was great! The suite had plenty of room and was tended to each day of our stay. Continental breakfast consisted of muffins and/or bagels and milk or orange juice. The bed and breakfast was within walking distance to many restaurants and really close to Forsythe Park. We enjoyed out stay very much!
This was a great value bed and breakfast. It was exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely stay there again. The breakfast was delicious, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the atmosphere was comfortable.
Lovely place in a historic style home with a lovely huge private back courtyard and deck. The chef's cooking for breakfast is truly outstanding. Fantastic shrimp and grits, fantastic everything. I'd go back again in a heartbeat.
Very nice room in a well located B&B. The inside garden and deck are great. The bathroom was dated, but clean. The service was ok. Overall, for the price (compared to the rest of Savannah), it was great value.
My husband and I spent one night here along our road trip and loved it. Diane was a wonderful host. Once we arrived, she sat us for a breofing on the area and must sees with a map in hand for us to keep. There was wine and tasty snacks out shortly after we checked in. Diane made sure that there were no allergies before deciding breakfast which was very thoughtful. We will surely be back!
Had a wonderful stay here. Location is in the residential area so it's quieter than other areas of town. Breakfast was delicious both days and the milk and cookies were a nice treat. Would definitely stay here again.
What an excellent job of restoring these beautiful historic buildings! I lived at 121 W. Gordon 46 years ago. At that time just a few of the buildings were being bought for restoration. We stayed in the Tree Top. So comfortable! Took my Aunt and Uncle with us, they are in their 80's and I booked the Lane Cottage for them. It was more apartment like, even a private courtyard. Our stay was over a weekend, so you have to be alert to parking restrictions but the staff was so helpful and we had no problems. Breakfast was excellent, good variety of fresh, made to order choices. The open, beautifully decorated dining room, provided a wonderful opportunity to visit with other guests. Relaxing on the deck overlooking the courtyard, ahh! This location is perfect for walking to, as far as the river area, if your up to it!I was disappointed I could not book an architectural tour. I would love to come stay again!
Lee is the best! Inn is a block from the beach and She has chairs ready for you. Felt very welcome and rooms were very clean. Amazing breakfasts and even better red velvet cake. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying on Tybee.
Short walk from a long beautiful beach. Ample supply of beach amenities. Assortment of snack choices. Unique front porch friendliness. Well decorated rooms. Very helpful staff. We enjoyed the stay in this southern beach town.
My son and I really enjoyed our stay at the Tybee Island Inn! The Inn is very clean and decorated beautifully. We loved the Inns location, it was just a short bike ride to the beach and lighthouse! We also really enjoyed the breakfast! We are looking forward to visiting the Inn again soon!
I really enjoyed staying here, the staff was very friendly and helpful, check in was a delight when they walked me around to show me everything. this was a great experience, my first B&B I ever stayed at and will come again. the room was fabulous, the back porch area was beautiful and relaxing. I was only here for one night on business but told my husband we needed to plan a weekend getaway and stay here.
Four of us stayed in the newly decorated Connor House and really enjoyed it. The beds are very comfortable. The breakfasts each day, a short walk across the square, were varied and well prepared. The service was wonderful. Just what one would expect given Savannah's reputation for hospitality. We plan on returning someday and will definitely stay with Savannah B&B Inn.
Our stay in the Chatham Suite on Chatham Square in March 2017 was outstanding. Wonderful accommodations, beautiful views of the square out our window, best food in town cooked by the Innkeeper, Monique, our own parking spot, fireplaces both upstairs and downstairs, a full kitchen, a perfect location, two very kind housekeepers, what more could one ask for? Everyone was professional as well as personable. Monique went out of her way to cook gluten-free for my wife, who raved over all of the treats. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Savannah!
The Green Palm Inn was an INCREDIBLE place to stay on our mini vacation. We felt like we were at home! The rooms were clean and comfortable, the location couldn't be beat, and breakfast in the morning was amazing. Mrs. Diane was a great hostess, offering a glass of wine and reviewing a map with us when we got in so we could walk around and get our bearings. She knew so much about the area, the only downside was that we couldn't stay for longer!!
We loved our 6 night stay here. We thought the Treetop suite was a great value for extra space! Bed was comfortable with lots of pillows and everything was clean. Good breakfast choices that were well made helped our day start off right! And our favorite thing about this place was milk and homemade delicious cookies in the evening. The staff was always pleasant and helpful, even offering to help us stay another night when our flight was cancelled if needed. We would definitely stay here again!
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.

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.

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.
