Mansion On Forsyth Park

Savannah, Georgia

Virgin rating

The hotel

Built in 1888, this fully restored Victorian-Romanesque style mansion captures the very heart of southern charm and opulence. Doors with large Lalique crystal handles open onto a spacious lobby with marble columns, a high ceiling and sparkling chandelier. Beyond is the marble courtyard complete with heated relaxation pool and a stunning water wall. If you’re dining at the hotel, you’re in for a treat. The Mansion’s 700 Drayton Restaurant showcases eclectic Georgian cuisine with a twist and occupies a richly decorated setting of dramatic colours and distinctive artworks. If you fancy trying your hand at a few of the delectable dishes on offer, hands-on cooking classes are available in the ultra-modern 700 Kitchen Cookery School for a surcharge. For those in need of pampering, look no further than the Poseidon Spa with its full range of tempting treatments, including a Sea Mist Body Buff and Lavender Bliss Manicure – even the names are enough to unwind you! At night, head to Casimir’s Lounge to enjoy refreshing beverages, live entertainment and stunning views on the terrace. The Grand Bohemian Art Gallery & Gift Boutique features a unique blend of rare and wonderful paintings, sculptures, glass works and jewelry. Be sure not to miss it!

While we didn’t stay at the Bardo, we did visit and enjoy drinks in their bar. We have visited the property when it was the Mansion on Forsyth. Wow! The renovation is spectacular with its Mediterranean vibe. Most impressive and so conveniently across from Forsyth Park.

Stunning. We stopped in for a drink and fell so in love with the beauty we extended our Savannah trip and booked 2 extra nights here. Newly renovated and very well done. The staff were absolute gems, especially Richard, who drove us anywhere we wanted to go and made every car ride a 5 star experience.

A beautiful centrally located new modern hotel. Very friendly staff, very concerned about the guest. Rooms were very clean and spacious. When we come back to Savannah, certainly back to the Bardo. There is a swab in the rating because: it was an event over our weekend in the city and the hotel restaurant was fully booked, also because it is fully open for non-hotel guests. We didn’t get a place in the main restaurant for the entire stay of 3 days. Read less

We were excited to stay for 5 nights and booked a one bedroom suite, the floor plan of which was quite specific with a separate bed and lounge area.

We were excited to stay for 5 nights and booked a one bedroom suite, the floor plan of which was quite specific with a separate bed and lounge area. On arrival, equivalent rooms were unavailable and a series of alternatives were presented, none of which matched the expectations that had been set. The staff promised to find a solution, but ultimately presented the original room, so the booking was cancelled and we found another 5* hotel nearby. The staff were quite pleasant but their ability to problem solve and resolve the issue was unsatisfactory. It felt like a bait and switch. Do not assume that what they are selling is what you will get and certainly don’t assume the pictures or floor plans will be similar to what is presented. They admitted that there is a problem with the visuals not matching the actuals. Buyers beware. The sad part is that the decor and environment is beautiful, but service standards and accuracy is way off what you should expect at the price point. Read less

Did not stay at hotel but the Valet, Cole, that parked my car for me to attend my Grandson’s final concert in Forsyth Park, directly across from the hotel and across from a 2 lane one way VERY BUSY STREET…..the nicest young man…..he unloaded my little wagon, loaded the items in it and literally walked me to the park to make sure i got they ok. I am 80 years old and can do all this myself but lifting is an issue. Wow. What a nice young man and even my encounter returning he and couple others of which i did not get names made sure all my items were in the car and directed me back into the traffic. Compliments to all the young men parking cars but my special thanks to Cole. Read less
