My Husband and I celebrated our 10 year Anniversary at this Inn and we LOVED IT!!! It was our first trip to Savannah and I did a lot a research before picking the Azalea Inn. Everything from the location, rooms, breakfast, and the wonderful staff was top notch! (And I'm very picky!) We found the location to be perfect. We loved the fact that it is a bit tucked away but at the same time so accessible. We walked everywhere! You can start right at Forsyth Park and walk through the beautiful Squares all the way to the river. So much to see!! So many wonderful sites and restaurants. As we walked past a number of the other locations that we had considered we both agreed that our location was far superior. It was kind of a running joke with us. Saying oh we could have stayed there or there and then being happy we were not. When we walked home in the evening away from the hustle and bustle of downtown we truly felt like we were coming home! And we did use the towers as our guide a few times after some fun evenings out:)!
The other guests and staff were so much fun to talk to during the evening wine and cheese and at breakfast.The food by the way is beyond AMAZING! Everybody was having a great time! Teresa is so funny and personable and is a perfect hostess! Want to shout out to Kimberly, Shannon, Haley, Miss Betty and the new addition Madi! You guys made everything great for us!
We stayed in the Cottage Room and enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub and our private patio! The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in! I'm serious. When I got home I woke up one morning and before I opened my eyes I said to myself please let me still be Savannah. That's how much I loved it there.
I could go on and on about all the great places to eat and cool things to see but I suggest you go yourself. The girls will offer great suggestions and make reservations. They even arranged a private carriage tour of the city and had them drop us off at our restaurant! Perfect night!
We did rent a car and used it to got to Tybee and see the surroundings around Savannah. I would recommend the beach near the Tybee Lighthouse. Less hectic and a beach bar right there. Free parking at the Inn. Bonus! (And I don't usually address another person's issues but I did not feel unsafe at all. Shame on them for leaving their stuff in the car. I would not do that anywhere! But I would be even more nervous about downtown! That being said you have to use common sense no matter where you stay.) Enough of that...
We stayed for a whole week and I could have stayed longer. it was that lovely and welcoming and FUN!
BONUS!! A pool at a B & B! I'm sold!
Again I could go on and on but will sum it up that if you are going to Savannah, Azalea Inn & Gardens is the place to stay!!
In my husband's words Teresa is a "hot ticket!" And he is NOT a fan of B & B's. (Except for one other on Cape Cod, but that's another story:).
I would like to note that my husband had ankle surgery prior to the trip and we were concerned about the distance to downtown and it was not and issue at all. And we are not spring chickens:).
Pack your bags, give Teresa a call and GO! Maybe we will see you there!
I like the privacy of The Cottage but all the rooms look beautiful!
