Overall, we enjoyed our short stay at the Eliza Thompson house. The staff is very nice. The hotel is in a great location- very romantic and picturesque part of Savannah. Walking distance to some very nice restaurants. We stayed in the main house in the Lindsey room which was nice, but the only windows face a wall so next time... More

My girlfriends and I stayed in the room right off the parlor. It was excellent. The beds and bedding were perfect. The breakfast is good, the wine & cheese hour is nice and the overall appearance of the place is excellent. I'm looking forward to going back!

Could not have been more pleased with our room and our location. Our room,2 queen beds, located near the front of the house,was spacious and quiet. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We couldn't believe that breakfast , a 5 o'clock happy hour and a 9 o'clock dessert were included. It was an easy walk to the river, all... More

Spent two nights here, wanted a change ffrom Hilton - and it is. The room is comfortable but not very spacious. The AC is noisy and plced so it creates a draft on the bed. The bathroom is very small. The staff at the Reception are chatty and helpful, although the chat level is obviously more appreciated by Americans than... More

Wonderful place to stay. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Loved the wine and appetizers at 5.30. It allowed us to meet some interesting people from many different backgrounds and places. I would have given it a 5 star rating but the bathrooms are very small and there was nowhere to put my clothes. That being said, the room... More

We stayed here in March and had a great visit. This inn is located in a quite, beautiful area of Savannah with restored homes and buildings in all directions. We were able to walk to restaurants and several of the squares easily from this local (the Mercer Williams house is just behind the Inn if you have read "the book").... More

An excellent two day stay at Eliza Thompson house, which is centred around a lovely old building - although most of the rooms are in the more modern wings. There is a very pleasant central courtyard with fountain. We had a warm welcome and helpful service with a comfortable room in an excellent location. I guess that is really everything... More

The Inn was exceptional on every level but most importantly the staff was among the most hospitable I've ever seen--truly special! The location could not be better and staying in an historic house while in Savannah was the icing on the cake for a great visit.

The Inn has a relaxing atmosphere. The wine and cheese hour and the dessert and coffee hour are a nice touch;after coming in from a long day of exploring. The street is very quiet. The oaks draping over the street adds to the charm of the inn. Recommend for anyone. You will enjoy the inn if you are going with... More

This historic boutique hotel sits on one of the most beautiful streets in Savannah. From the moment of check in we had excellent customer service. Our room was very comfortable and clean. I love their complimentary wine and cheese in the parlor during the evening hours.
