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!

Hotel was in a nice location. But a very eclectic style..modern, kitsch, over the top and busy decor. Not to my taste. Bathrooms are not the most private. If you want turn down service you must ask Staff very good though. Concierge,Yvonne(?) was great and most helpful. Warm cookies in the lobby every afternoon was a truly great touch.

This hotel is gorgeous! It is right across from the Forsyth Park. It’s a little bit of a walk to the river, but the streets are fabulous. The rooms are elegant and the staff is attentive and courteous.

We were in Savannah for a family wedding and stayed at the beautiful Mansion. While all the people were very accommodating, we would like to give a shout out to Amon of the bell staff. He went out of his way for us, even using his personal phone to check on the shuttle service for us. I hope you recognize him as a valued member of your team!!

I think this hotel is pretty overrated. But first the good things: The location is really perfect if you want to explore Savannah on foot. Forsyth Park is wonderful and the city centre is not far away. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. The hotel scores full points for this. What did we not like?

I think this hotel is pretty overrated. But first the good things: The location is really perfect if you want to explore Savannah on foot. Forsyth Park is wonderful and the city centre is not far away. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. The hotel scores full points for this. What did we not like? The house is very angled from the inside and looks a bit gloomy. The furnishings are exaggerated and tasteless (apparently an attempt to imitate old European grand hotels, which unfortunately does not succeed at all). Walls and some furniture look worn out and old. Forthermore, the walls are thin and not soundproof. If this place was indeed old, we would understand. But it was newly built 15 years ago. Considering all these shortcomings, the hotel is clearly too expensive. Read less
