The staff, environment and location were great. We stayed in the James Oglethorpe room which was large and very comfortable. The hotel is located in the perfect place to walk everywhere you want to go in the city. Breakfast and happy hour were full of friendly travelers, recommendations, helpful hints and good food.

We had a lovely room (the Palmer) with a VERY nice bathroom. The first night, the hall light stayed on all night and shone through the transom over the door. After consulting with our neighbors, we turned it off and slept much better the second night. My husband was annoyed by the poor television reception, but it's not like we... More

Hey BluegrassTarheel, Thank you for taking the time to write a great and informative review for us. The Samuel Palmer is a very popular room due to the great king bed, the wonderfully appointed bathroom, and the private balcony. That hallway chandelier should have been dimmed to just the right amount of light for guests to see coming up the... More

This review is almost 3 months late. We stayed two nights in early March. Our stay was memorable. This was our first trip to visit Savannah and we were thrilled with the Dress Palmer House. We stayed in the John Wesley room. The room was quant, yet large, comfortable, and inviting. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was one... More

Hi Denise B, Thank you for taking the time to review, no matter how late! We definitely appreciate the great review and that you enjoyed your time here so well. The John Wesley is a great room that is convenient enough to the main areas of the house while remaining private enough to not feel like you're in the middle... More

Two ladies and I from Kansas visited the Dresser Palmer House . It was a wonderful experience! The home is just beautiful and the southern hospitality was exceptional! Our chef/manager Colin fixes the most delicious breakfasts and he is so helpful with any questions you have. We had so much fun in this charming Inn and hope to return! Kathy... More

One of the most beautiful places ever visited! The staff was so warm & welcoming throughout our entire stay! We stayed in the Wisteria room which we loved because it had 2 private entrances just off of the house which was fantastic when we came in late from dinner. The breakfast served every morning was absolutely fantastic!! My fiance &... More

Hey Chelsea M, Congratulations on your engagement! It is so great to be part of such a wonderful and momentous occasion. I am glad that we could create the backdrop and setting for the proposal.

WOW!!! We could not have picked a better place for our first trip to Savannah than the Dresser-Palmer House. OMG-when you walk in, you can smell the home cooking. Although the home was magnificent, the highlight of our stay was interacting with the amazing staff. The entire staff - from Anna introducing us to the 24 hour self serve bar,... More

Only because two out of the three staff were so unfriendly - not rude by any means but "not there." Served us breakfast and that was it - literally. Where was the southern hospitality? Actually Culin was great but he was only there one night and the other two nights two different women were there. Might seem like a small... More

Hey jonesgo, I so appreciate your review and all you have to say. Thank you for the kind words and true concern for the care we give our guests. I have carefully worked up a group of sweet and caring individuals to take care of the guests so I can have a day or two off here and there. Sometimes,... More

Awesome place to stay. Breakfast each day was great. We HAVE to eat Gluten free, not like most of the trendy G-Free people. They provided us with a great breakfast each day and prepared it G-Free. The staff was very friendly. They gave us tips on how to navigate the city and some things to do and see that are... More

Hey Dave D, I see this is your first Trip Advisor review, thanks for making it about us! Hospitality is our forte, which means making everyone feel comfortable. Therefore, at breakfast time we like to make sure nobody feels singled out or different. I plan the meals to be flexible enough to make them Gluten Free, vegetarian, vegan, dairy free,... More

I didn't arrive until well after 11pm and the owners had already called and sent email to let me know how to get into the house and to my room. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The house is typical Savannah, just what I was looking for. Walking in, you are greeted by a Steinway piano. The patio and... More

The B&B is building is beautiful, the staff is helpful & friendly, the location is great. My room was below ground so it smelled a bit musty/moldy. However the room was beautiful, we had our own entrance and the bathroom is gorgeous.

Hi café-society, Thank you so much for taking the time to let future guests know about your stay. I really strive to make sure the staff makes everyone feel welcome and well cared for.
