We took two rooms at this inn and stayed for two nights. While I really appreciate the old world style our stay was tainted by a breakfast that was tasty but very limited for B&B standards especially given the prices of the rooms. Usually, there is an array of pastries and fruit in addition to the cooked breakfast. In case... More

My partner and I spent 2 wonderful days here. The staff was very accommodating and available to answer any questions about the city. The room was fantastic. We stayed in one of the largest rooms on the 2nd floor(Samuel Palmer Suite) with a very large shared balcony. The room had a wonderful bed and shower(be aware that rooms on the... More

The Dresser Palmer House was a great place to stay. Rooms were cool (important in Savannah!) and clean and the drawing room/dining room was very charm. We stayed in the Azalea Room which was small but exactly what we needed. Staff was accommodating and helpful and there's free wine every evening from 5-6! Definitely a plus! Also location was great,... More

Hey livster1227! Glad you enjoyed your stay! Staying cool is SO important here in Savannah. We just had a few new units installed to push more air through this big house. The Azalea room is nice and cozy and the rooms down in the garden level stay even cooler. We are happy you had fun with us! From all of... More

We recently stayed three nights at the Dresser Palmer House for our anniversary. It was our first experience staying at a bed & breakfast. We were absolutely delighted that we chose Dresser Palmer. Our room, Wisteria, was beautiful, intimate and full of character. The bathroom was large with a wonderful, huge walk-in shower. There is free parking, which is definitely... More

We recently stayed two nights at the Dresser Palmer. Our room, the Lady Astor was very nice, with a comfy bed.

Hey ALB22, Thanks for choosing The Dresser Palmer House! The Lady Astor is a favorite for those that like a bit more privacy and like to be off the second story verandah. The modern bathroom is a plus and the claw-foot tub is also a guest favorite. Perhaps on your next visit, you'd like The James Oglethorpe. At the same... More

My wife and I stayed in this B&B in April of 2014. The location was great...walking distance to all of sights in the historic district and minutes from Forsyth Park. And the walk to river street was not that bad. The room we stayed in (Gardenia Room) was nice but lacked some of the unique characteristics that we have come... More

My wife and I spent our 25th wedding anniversary here. We originally reserved a smaller room downstairs but when we arrived, Sarah quickly upgraded our accommodations to a queen room upstairs adjacent to the rear balcony. This was our first B&B experience and both Sarah and Colon made it special. Both were quick to respond to every request and were... More

Hey skipjaxn1! Happy Anniversary! We are so happy you chose to celebrate such an occasion with us at The Dresser Palmer House. We always make sure our guests are comfortable and fed VERY well. Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day and while we're at it, why not make an awesome wine hour and some cookies to boot!... More

Kolin made the effort to cook a gluten free breakfast for me each of our 3 mornings. That was a plus! Our room was on the 2nd floor, so we enjoyed the waltz-out windows that led to the shared balcony. Ceiling fans and comfortable patio furniture were out there. We didn't actually need to share anything, since we were the... More

Hey Anghough, Thank you for your review!

We were very pleased with the accommodation , much better than we expected. We stayed in the Johnny Mercer room, excellent although the bed was very creaky!
