My destination wedding on May 18, 2007 could not have been any more perfect. It was exactly how I'd always dreamed it would be - small & personal in a beautiful location. 109 West was that beautiful location. It is situated in historic downtown Savannah within walking distance to Bay & River Street (food & entertainment). The property itself perfecty captures the old southern charm of the city. Robbie did a magnificent job in remodeling and decorating the property in the luxurious colonial style incorporating items from the original property throughout the house (original doors as a bed's head board). For our wedding, we rented the entire property (main house, garden apartment and carriage house) so that all our guests could be in one place. We had the wedding ceremony on the first balcony of the main house while the guests were seated or standing in the courtyard below us. We then walked to one of the many nearby squares that Savannah is famous for to take some (more) wedding photos. The owner was so helpful during our wedding planning offering suggestions and not minding when we made last minute changes (somebody is arriving early!!). All this and it was extremely affordable. The prices on the different units are comparable to most other hotel chains, however, if you rent the entire property (as we did) you get a very nice discount. We'll definitely be back to 109 West.
