“(almost!) Perfect Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We love to come here for a 24 hour retreat from reality. The rooms are luxurious and hands down, I love the chair and ottoman in the rooms. The restaurant was delicious (had dinner and breakfast) and the staff is always accommodating and friendly. I do wish they provided bath salts for the bath tub!

I have two issues, and have had them from day 1 so I am consistent. One is that there is not free internet and the second is parking on-site is only valet. I am frustrated that the high end hotels do not provide what more budget minded hotels (such as Hilton Garden Inns) do - complimentary wireless internet. And this hotel has a large parking lot that is often a quarter filled, and yet, do not allow guests to park their cars there unless they are valet parked. I would pay for the parking if I could just park the car there myself. I hate that we park on the street, often blocks away, and this is frustrating if you have purchased something and want to leave it in the car.

Room Tip: The rooms with the tubs are amazing!!!

We found the Mansion on Forsyth Park to be a fabulous start to our vacation. We spend four days in April and were in walking distance to almost everything we wanted to see, if not there was a shuttle that would pick you up and take you to and from the hotel, as well as there are numerous on and off trolly tours throughout Savannah.

The hotel is lovely, a very unique stay and comfortable.

I would recommend parking on the street for free vs. $22 a day for valet (just watch for the street cleaning signs). The Cafe at Forsythe Park across the street provides great value for food and an alternative to the hotel restaurants.

My one complaint would be housekeeping, during our 3 days there our room was cleaned very late in the day e.g. 4pm - one day we are wanting to come back, shower and head out for the evening and that was a 45 minute delay in our plans as a result.

This is a lovely spot on Forsyth Park. Our room faced out and we enjoyed watching all of the activity going on over the weekend. Check-in was a bit of a nightmare--little staff and a large event taking place in their ballroom/lobby area. Valet service was easy and very quick. Really enjoyed our large modern room--the large tub in the middle was unique! You do have to pay extra per day for Internet service (however there are several coffee joints with Free Internet around).

Room Tip: Get a room facing the Park for a spectacular view!

From beginning to end, great service, beautiful room on the concierge level, comfy beds, great wine, delicious food. Very quiet for those of us who prefer to sleep in and enjoy a lazy morning. We loved the decor and the artwork. Spent hours just roaming around and soaking in the beauty.
The spa was luxurious and totally relaxing. Highly recommend this hotel for a perfect getaway!

We were very comfortable in this hotel. The staff was very pleasant, the accommodations comfortable and the location in the historic district of Savannah can't be beat! I had never stayed in an "Autograph Collection" hotel before, however, and found the décor garish...plastic
"crystal" candelabra in the room and even bathroom, loud colors in the art on the wall etc. It was unlike any other Marriott I've stayed in....supposed to look luxurious, I imagine, but to me it ended up looking cheap.

Room Tip: Try to get a park view!

I hosted a small group meeting here. The rooms were excellent and the meeting facilities were also excellent. The meeting service and meeting F&B was fantastic. We will be back. The management support of our needs before, during and after the meeting was outstanding. The prices were very reasonable and the hotel accommodated our every need. The location across the street from Forsyth Park is one of the best in Savannah. The only complaint I have is that they will not allow you to park on their property if you do not use the valet that requires you to release them from any liability associated with your car or its contents. Fortunately, we were able to find street parking within a block and did not get ticketed or towed while a guest of this place.

Room Tip: The place is old and has been renovated over an over. All of the rooms are different but they are n...

Savannah is the ideal place for a long romantic weekend and the Mansion on Forsyth perfected it. Checking in to the Mansion on Forsyth late after a long day or travel being offered a glass of Champagne, or hot chocolate and cookie as you check in makes you realises this is a special place.
The hotel has an air of understated elegance, the rooms are tastefully furnished and quiet. Big comfy beds, plenty of wardrobe space and bath you could do laps in, made this a great place to stay. The hotel is complemented by its staff; the Front of house staff, reception desk and concierge were helpful with any request , possibly some of the most helpful of any place I have stayed, as were the bar restaurant and housekeeping staff, and managed to do this all without being intrusive.
The Mansion on Forsyth is a great place to stay but the staff make it amazing.
