“Gracious Living...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A friend and I stayed at The Mansion in September of 2012. We were only there 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer! It was a lovely place to come home to after hot and humid days and nights spent exploring Savannah.
We had a lovely view of Forsyth Park from our 2nd story window. Make sure to request a view room! We had requested and paid for a view room but they mistakenly put us in a different room first...it had a view if the back of the hotel where they dumped the trash. Front desk fixed problem right away and got us to the correct room.
The beds were some of the most confortable I have ever slept in...like a cloud! So if you like a soft squishy bed, you'll love these. Room was spacious, we had 2 queen beds, a chasie lounge, a desk, and armoire with closets in either side and TV and droors in middle.
The Bathroom was very roomy and opened up into the bedroom with big double hinged doors over the tub so you could watch TV from bathroom and converse with your friends while getting ready. It had 2 sinks, big soaking tub, and seperate shower & water closet. The only thing I did not like was that the water closet had a glass door. So when you are sharing a room with freinds no one else can be in the bathroom getting ready unless you want them to see you using the facilities! In fact the shower and toilet were seperated by a glass panel that leaked! So later in the evening when we got back from our Pub Crawl and I took a shower...my drunken friend went to use the facilities and thought she had wet on the Floor!
All in all it was a great place to stay and would definitely stay again...even with the strange see thru bathroom :-)

Room Tip: Reserve a room with a view of Forsythe Park!

This hotel has a great location on a quiet street across from Forsyth Park. The bed was very comfortable and our suite was modern with a southern flair. We did not make it to the restaurant here but would love to check it out next time! The lobby and bar area were very swanky and gilded yet inviting. This area is several blocks from the crowded River Street tourist area. It also seems geared more toward adults than families traveling with kids.

I have stayed in the best properties around the world and sincerely this is one of them. I could not believe it either as I was just passing through. Service was incredible, food at the restaurant was better than most nyc ones, rooms were huge and beautiful, location great, this place is like some kind of museum. I cannot say enough about it.

Room Tip: As for a corner room

The hotel's location on beautiful Forsyth Park is its greatest calling card, but not its only one. The park became the centerpiece of our visit to Savannah, enjoyable for walking, scenery and people watching. Can't emphasize too highly how much of a plus this was. Hotel itself was a very good value for the money - not quite brilliant but with a lot of strengths and definitely more than worth the rates. Great bar, breakfasts, totally over-the-top decor. Wonderful home base for exploring the rest of Savannah. One downside: bathroom is basically open to the rest of the room, closed off only by a curtain.

Room Tip: You definitely want a room facing Forsyth Park

Rarely does a hotel look better in reality than it does on the internet, but in this case we were delightfully surprised. The hotel itself is lovely with original art work along all the corridors. The lobby is welcoming and the bar inviting. The dining facility is intimate and the food appealing to the eye and the palate. Our room was large, facing the park, with a wonderful bathroom including a whirlpool tub. The location is perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed the warm weather and lazy strolls in the park and surrounding neighborhood. The staff was friendly and courteous from the valet attendants to the concierge. We plan to stay at the Mansion again for any future visits to Savannah.

Room Tip: Highly recommend a corner room with a view of the park.

I love Savannah and have visited the city a number of times in the past seven years, always staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Savannah Airport, which I would also recommend for its Southern charm and hospitality. I have passed the Mansion on Forsyth Park many times and always promised to treat myself there one day and finally did so. My expectations were more than met. The magnificently restored Victorian mansion is in the heart of the beautiful historic district and everything about the hotel has a taste of southern luxury, tinted with some typical Savannah quirks. Our room and ensuite overlooked Forsyth Park and were outstanding and luxuriously appointed, as indeed is the whole hotel which has interesting artwork throughout. We had a delicious seafood meal in the restaurant followed by a relaxing evening in the bar entertained by a wonderful live jazz band. In general, the staff were hospitable and friendly and our stay was well worth the price.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a room overlooking Forsyth Park.
