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!

My husband and I stayed here for a very much needed trip to relax and recharge. This is the second time we’ve stayed here and we love it. The hotel is gorgeous. The art is enough of a reason to come back. The staff inside and outside were all amazing. Housekeeping is not provided unless requested due to the pandemic. We requested housekeeping twice and they did a great job. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The location next to Forsyth Park is so pretty. Walking around the area was fantastic and the walk to the river area is very nice. We’ll definitely be back. PS You can purchase the candle they burn in the lobby and it’s phenomenal. Read less

We were lucky enough to work with Lea McGilloway at the Mansion on Forsyth Park for our wedding on November 5, 2021. Due to a family illness, we planned the wedding in 6 weeks. We couldn’t have done it without her! We held our ceremony in the Marble Garden and the reception in Casimir’s Lounge. All of which were amazing. Although it was rainy, the staff at the mansion kept the ceremony area dry for us. All of the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We couldn’t ask for better service. The food and drinks were fantastic. We stayed in the Kessler Suite, and all of the girls got ready there the day of the wedding. It worked perfectly! I highly recommend the Mansion, it was a perfect day for us!! Read less

We chose the Forsyth to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. We got the AAA Hot Deal, which included a $50 breakfast credit at 700 Drayton, a restaurant that is part of the Mansion complex. We also signed up for a cooking class at the cooking school, at the restaurant. Everything was fabulous! We had the best time! We highly recommend a stay… Read more

Our room was perfect, the food at the restaurant was always spot on, and the cooking class with Chef Jason was the highlight of the trip. We absolutely got our money's worth, and memories to last a lifetime. Read less

Really pleased with our stay at this property. Staff is professional, helpful and accommodating. Rooms and facilities are well-maintained. Overall, a great value. And 700 Drayton - the hotel restaurant - is very good, as well. And the rest of this review is to fill the 200 character minimum.
