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!

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.

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!

Wonderful stay! Cannot wait to return. The hotel combines elegant southern charm and bohemian art flawlessly. The staff is incredible. Everyone was very kind and attentive. You feel welcome from the moment you pull up to the hotel. The staff made our trip to celebrate my birthday feel extra special. Fantastic location. Forsyth Park is right across the street and everything you could want for local Savanah flare/flavor is within walking distance. Absolutely recommend walking everywhere. The multiple parks and city landscaping do not disappoint. A variety of local shops, cafes and art galleries can be found on almost every block. Read less

My wife and I stayed here for our 30th anniversary. Unique rooms, beautiful spa, quaint secluded pool, friendly bar and restaurant. We walked into town for the 3 days that we were there, so very close, or you could grab their personal shuttle. Would definitely go back!

The famous Forrest Gump bus stop is nearby but this mansion is so much more. An autograph collection hotel, if you are a Marriott rewards member, you will love it. What struck me was the amount of art in the hotel including the corridors of the hotel. Old world charm awaits you when you go into your room. Can’t believe just how nice this place… Read more
