With so many beautiful historic houses in Savannah, visitors can take advantage of the abundant array of hotels and bed and breakfasts in town. Midtown has easy access to Forsyth Park, Laurel Grove Cemetery, and plenty of unique antique shops – so it makes a great base for sightseeing. Each of these Midtown hotels will provide a cozy getaway after a full day of activities around town.
The Mansion on Forysth is not only a luxurious hotel. The property also offers some of the best dining in town, as well as cooking classes, rooftop and piano lounge bars, and easy access to Forsyth Park. With over 125 rooms in this Victorian AAA Four-Diamond hotel, exploring the mansion is an activity in itself. Versace furniture, Verona marble, exquisite chandeliers, and over 400 original artwork pieces makes this hotel stand out from the rest in Savannah.
In the heat and thick humidity of Savannah, a bed and breakfast with a pool is certainly ideal – and the Azalea Inn delivers this perk, in the setting of a historic Savannah inn. The bed and breakfast includes rooms, suites, and villas that can accommodate weddings, business travel, or private parties. Other amenities include a poolside grill, all-day coffee and tea, evening wine socials, and a three-course breakfast each morning.
Right in the center of Midtown, you’ll find the historic Printmaker’s Inn, built in 1884. Decked out with period furnishings, there are four suites to choose from – with two dog-friendly ones available. It’s well located for visiting Forsyth Park, which is a two-minute walk from the property, while bustling River Street with its shops and bars is a 20-minute walk away. Finish the day by reading a book in the leafy back garden.
With a private pool and just a short walk from Forsyth Park, McMillan Inn offers all the right amenities to make a trip to Savannah romantic and memorable. The inn includes four rooms, along with a master suite carriage house complete with a kitchen and jacuzzi. The restored property’s ornate decor and furnishings represent the opulent Victorian renaissance period.
The Gastonian offers luxury accommodation in the heart of Midtown, Savannah. There are 17 elegant rooms in total, decked out in a traditional style with chandeliers and clawfoot tubs. We recommend asking for the garden room, with its own private entrance, swing, and goldfish pond outside. From 5:30pm, mingle with other guests in the Double Parlor where wine and hors d’oeuvres are served before you head out for dinner.
In a stately white house on 35th Street, Galloway House offers plenty of privacy and conveniences. The four large suites in this romantic home come with light breakfast options in each kitchen, along with a complimentary bottle of wine. The house allows no children under the age of 12 (except newborns), and its dog policy has made it one of the most popular pet-friendly B&Bs in the country.
A large 1850s mansion, the Confederate House combines value and luxury to make a perfect weekend getaway. Formerly a residential house, this inn has three large guest rooms, and plenty of space in numerous parlors. Full hot breakfasts are served up by the friendly host in the grand dining room every day for guests.
Roussell’s garden sanctuary provides guests with a sunny outdoor space among magnolia trees, bamboo, wisteria vines, and orange trees. This flourishing garden is the highlight for guests who want to enjoy a patio dinner or plan a whimsical outdoor wedding. Built in 1888 and renovated as a bed and breakfast in 2005, Rousell’s Garden Inn has four quaint rooms that are complete with laced draping and floral decor.
Sanctuary Place Inn welcomes guests with a unique bed and breakfast experience in Savannah. The property offers a very modern, open space within its Tudor-style confines. Guests will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of amenities in this inn where contemporary lofts, kitchens, gardens, and rooms blend well with trendy furniture and stained-glass windows. Sanctuary includes two lofted rooms and two larger suites.
