I can not fault this Bed and Breakfast. This is the 5th time I have stayed here and the only place I will stay when visiting Savannah. Beautiful room, clean as always, great decor, lovely and helpful staff, great location, and wow, just snoozing after an afternoon walk on the veranda is just heaven. I love this place, will keep...

This was not my first time to the Dresser Palmer House, so I had pretty high expectations. The rooms are still beautiful, clean and comfortable (although there was an old crusty wash cloth in my shower), but some items bothered me. We stayed in the Henry Dresser and the Ogelthorpe rooms, both of which have floor to ceiling windows which... More

Rebecca K, First of all, thank you for staying again at The Dresser Palmer House. We love our return guests and when they bring family and friends with them each time to share in new experiences with us, it is SO rewarding and fun. That being said, I do apologize for a less than excellent stay here at the inn.... More

I took my boyfriend here for our last weekend away for the year. We were on a budget so we stayed in the least expensive room they had. It was perfect. The bed was comfy, the staff was friendly, there was always tea and coffee upstairs as well as cookies 24/7. It was so beautiful that we almost splurged and... More

This hotel had so much appeal in terms of the "Bed" part. The rooms were nice, although the air went out in the middle of the night. That can happen right? It was only 90 degrees but we really did like the atmosphere of an old plantation type home. The beds were comfy and there was the sweetest sitting area... More

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

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!
