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!

Seeing Savannah has been a bucket list item for some time for us. To see this city for the first time with my best high school friend was extra special. We arrived late afternoon but had to wait until almost 6pm to get into our room. There wasn't daily housekeeping, surprising for a hotel of this caliber! The destination fee for what is offered is a joke. The hotel bar / restaurant was hardly open. The fire alarm went off the last night we were there and everyone had to evacuate. The bright light was the valet stand with Cynthia's personality!! Read less

There was an outdoor pool, a fitness center and a nightly (5pm-6pm) champagne and cookie social (thank you for my champagne refill). We could not have been happier with this selection. Every staff member we encountered treated us like royalty. Thank you for a memorable visit. Read less

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere warm in April. We stayed at the Mansion and it was wonderful in every respect. The staff was beyond courteous and thoughtful. We were so pampered!

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere warm in April. We stayed at the Mansion and it was wonderful in every respect. The staff was beyond courteous and thoughtful. We were so pampered! They hold the door for you every time you leave or arrive, water is provided at the front desk and in the gym, and the room was spacious, immaculate and very comfortable. We had a view of the park and it was just so relaxing. No matter where we were in the hotel, we had a great experience. I would return to this city and this particular hotel in a heartbeat. Read less

Although the staff is doing their best, this hotel is not up to its reputation. The telephone system is not working so no way to call out or in. The staff have been leaving so short handed. The general manager left. Our reserved room with park view was not available because air conditioning not working so we got a room without any view except… Read more
Although the staff is doing their best, this hotel is not up to its reputation. The telephone system is not working so no way to call out or in. The staff have been leaving so short handed. The general manager left. Our reserved room with park view was not available because air conditioning not working so we got a room without any view except for roof of tent over the patio. But still charging full rate when booked. This hotel was a Kessler Collection hotel but Kessler has deserted it. Boo on Kessler! Read less

I fell in front of the hotel and needed to go to the hospital to have stitches. The staff was very concerned and immediately called an ambulance and cleaned the wound. When we needed extra towels, they were brought up immediately. The soaking tub in the bathroom was a real treat. The food at 700 Drayton was very good. It was wonderful having Forsyth Park across the street. The champagne and cookies between 5-6 were served in a civilized manner. A staff person used tongs to move the cookie from the plate to a cocktail napkin. She also poured a cup of champagne and handed it to the guest. Read less
