I decided to get away from Atlanta for the weekend, so I drove down to Savannah on a Saturday morning. I arrived around 1 pm and this place was easy to find. Parking is a little tight there but free on the weekends, and the very friendly Christine greeted me and found me a parking spot behind the building on the street. A porter brought my bags to my cozy room on the lowest floor, and I was able to bring my dog to the room.
For only $50 additional you can bring your dog, they are very pet friendly here.
Checkin wasn't until 3 so my dog and I walked to a nearby restaurant to sit outside and enjoy people walking. Foley House Inn is located on one of Savannah's beautiful squares, and there are many others within walking distance, as is the whole River front scene (if you are into the touristy stuff). Otherwise, the nearby neighborhoods are full of stately old churches and beautiful old homes.
I only stayed one night, but I truly enjoyed the wine and snacks happy hour, good recommendations for a spot for dinner, and complimentary port wine afterwards. The next morning, I enjoyed a wonderful full breakfast on the patio.
You pay a little more to come here but the amenties and super friendly and helpful staff is so worth it. Realize that this is an old building and some of the carpeting is wearing, but it's part of the charm of a place like this. My room was clean, large, nice bathroom and large flat screen TV.
I would definitely come back, especially since the people who work there are so accomodating.
