Mansion On Forsyth Park

Savannah, Georgia

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!

This hotel is sort of at the edge of the squares and historic downtown, but it’s also just 2 blocks from Kroger. Our family was willing to walk and found it to be a great location. There was plenty of free street parking. The hallways were narrow and the elevators quirky, but there was lots of art and nicely decorated rooms—not your standard… Read more

In COVID times, somethings are totally different such as what is important for enjoying your getaway. The reception desk and front door were friendly, making us feel welcome as we came and went each day. We wanted to feel safe, and did so while staying at the Mansion on Forsyth Park whether wandering the floors looking at the art or relaxing at the pool. Unfortunately, it was not communicated nor in writing that the rooms were not cleaned between days, and we had to ask for extras such as coffee. Additionally, the afternoon rain shower knocked out the hotel's satellite reception, something that happens regularly, and they should change to a more consistent way to provide TV viewing. Read less

The staff was extremely friendly. Mell was very responsive to helping us with our dogs and getting us in and out of the hotel. Our rooms were upgraded. The Resturant next door was very good with incredibly large portions.

We live in Savannah but decided to stay local and it was the best decision ever! We have always wanted to stay in a Kessler Hotel but just never had the time or opportunity. Let me just say that now any time we have off we will always go Kessler! The rooms are beautiful and spacious. Very luxurious decor and accommodations. We were even upgraded by Melissa at the front desk when we had a room issue. Not to mention free champagne for our anniversary and quick check in by Durda! Thanks to every who has made our stay so incredible. Ps the Valets are so friendly and nice! Very accommodating!!!! Read less
