What a delightful find! Delightful, enchanting, romantic. I wish we had more than one night! We were only passing through Savannah and had just a few hours to sightsee. The hostess Gave us excellent recommendations of what to see and do on our quick trip. Our room was charming, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended. We enjoyed visiting with the other... More

Our room was dirty. AC was not sufficient to cool room. Only chair in the room was broken. Food was mediocre. Articles accidentally left in room upon departure were never returned to us even after several telephone calls. The free parking is in a deserted lot and the location of Dresser Palmer House is far from the river. All in... More

I am shocked and disappointed to hear such a negative review from guests that only said positive comments during the stay. First of all, I'll state that this guest did not once iterate their discomfort. How am I to fix an issue if there is no issue to my knowledge? Moving on, the chair is most definitely not broken.

Absolutely stunning architecture and decor. Very period and ultra romantic. Service was impeccable. Staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable about the area, providing advice on how to get around. Gourmet breakfast was wonderful. For a peaceful bed and breakfast experience in an intimate setting, you could not ask for better.

Staying at the Dresser Palmer House made our recent weekend in Savannah all the more special. It is a beautiful historic B & B with modern amenities. We stayed in the Emma Kelly room which was beautiful. It opened to a shared porch complete with comfortable chairs and plenty of shade. Anna made us feel right at home. Wine and... More

Very quiet, relaxful INN. Service, Food and surroundings are superb! Highly recommend to anyone wanting to 'get away' for a few days. Savannah is delightful! The location is close to trolley, so you may tour city. The street is very peaceful.

Outstanding service and beautiful room. It was the perfect get away. They had champagne with a fruit and cheese plater waiting for us when we arrived. Breakfast was amazing and so delicious. They gave great recommendations for things to do and restaurants eat at. The front porch was a great place to relax and enjoy the wine and cheese after... More

What a refreshing stay after being in corporate style hotels lately. This was such a nice and quiet stay in a beautiful home. Breakfast and service was excellent the next morning. Would highly recommend to anyone coming to Savannah. A very nice relaxing atmosphere that allows different opportunities to meet other guest and interact with staff.

Hey Matthew R, Hit the nail on the head! We love what you said about us being a departure from a chain hotel. That is exactly what we offer here; hotel quality beds, linens, and bathrooms, exceptional and friendly service in a casual and comfortable home. Thank you for the kind review! We know we'll see you again on your... More

Wonderful B&B! Beautiful home and decor, loved the back outdoor area with gates. I admit I dislike grits but I ate every last morsel of the chef's breakfast grits! Right at the edge of the historic district so quiet and away from the nightlife noise by Bay Street. Clean historic house with modern bathrooms - big plus! Our ghost tour... More

Dear jess8246, Thanks for taking the time to write us a sweet review. You've brought up some great points for future guests. While not on Bay, Broughton, or River streets, we are in the historic district and in such a lovely quiet location. We're away from the hubbub and noise, but walkable to all the great attractions. The modern bathrooms... More

We stayed in the Gardenia room, which is on the lower level and probably was servants quarters. But the room was very nice and bathroom contemporary and comfortable. The mattress could use replacing, but we both have very bad backs and are fussy about mattresses. The breakfast is a full gourmet breakfast served at the table. There was wine and... More

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.

Dear 1NYCGirlOnTheMove, Thanks for the great review and kind words! The James Oglethorpe is very popular, with its floor to ceiling "waltz out" windows, the calming hue of the walls, and the spa-style bathroom, it delights all travelers! Thank you for staying with us and experiencing Savannah with a few of our suggestions. From all of us at The Dresser... More
