“AMAZING!! Historical Inn in Savannah, GA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

First, let us start by saying that this is one of the best B & B/Historical Inn's that we have ever stayed in. Having stayed at several across the nation, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The staff was attentive, informative and helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay memorable. We had a late arrival, but they were still there to help bring in our luggage. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The decor in the room was very tasteful and they had provided every amenity you could imagine. The staff was more than happy to help arrange for flowers, champagne and strawberries in our room upon arrival.

The breakfast offerings changed daily, and were delightful. H'orderves were served each evening as well as several nice selections of wine. In addition to that, a late evening port offering was set out to be enjoyed. They also called the next day to ask if they could help with any dinner reservations.

The rooms were impeccably cleaned every morning after we left, and turndown service with a card with a nice message as well as the next days forecast along with a sweet treat was placed on our pillow. A great DVD selection was available downstairs at no extra charge if you want to watch a movie. They even offered beach towels if we were going to beach, and we were very happy to have those.

Jeremy, the general manager, was there each morning to serve breakfast. He was very nice and went out of his way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. You can tell that he really takes pride in running the Hamilton-Turner Inn, and he does a very fine job. On our last day (which was a Monday) he asked which car was ours outside and arranged to have coins put in the meter so that we did not get a ticket.

Overall, our stay was one of our favorites and we will definitely be back.

It was the breakfast, it was the location,it was the decor, the beautifully decorated room and comfortable bed, it was the attentive staff who always smiled and made me feel as though I was more than just another guest. There were several reasons why I will never stay at any place other than this Inn!

Staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive, but also let us have our privacy. Great location, comfortable room. Loved the appetizers and drinks in the parlor every day. We highly recommend this Inn to anyone who plans to visit Savannah.

Room Tip: Isaiah Davenport room is in basement, but has nice private entrance--very convenient. If you need go...

We stayed here one night. My husband and I were in a suite and our 2 teenage children were in a regular room. Both were very nice. It was expensive, but worth it. We had never been to Savannah before and the staff were very helpful in pointing out things to do. Location was great. We walked to everything we wanted to see. Only thing I would change is the breakfast. It was good, but seating is by reservation and you are at your own table. I prefer the communal seating of other inns and B&B's we have been too, but that's just me. Overall, this is a nice inn that I would recommend to friends.

This bed and breakfast is absolutely beautiful! My husband and I loved the wine at 530 because it really brought the hotel guests out of their rooms so we could visit with some of the guests.

The breakfasts and appetizers weren't phenomenal, they were eatable and complete, but not like mommas cooking. The service desk was knowledgable and helpful, but didnt follow through on helping us make a reservation to let us know they had confirmed the appointment for a carriage tour. They didn't communicate with one another about the plans when they switched jobs so we had to find the other worker instead of talking to the service desk attendee. We also went in to breakfast at our specified time and the breakfast host asked us in a very agitated voice to go sit in the living area that our table wasn't ready. It was our first morning so we weren't aware of the way things worked. The bathroom ceiling looked as though there was a leak and the wallpaper was peeling back and bubbling above the shower area.

There was a very helpful lady at the front desk, though. And a very bubbly energetic man that showed us around our first day. We also really enjoyed the cleaning service that was very thorough and quick and the turndown service in the evening with cookies in our pillows.

My husband and I overall enjoyed our stay, however, in the future we may try a different b and b with more consistant attention to details.

This is a luxury property with one flaw. They have a small dining room which requires designated seating times. The first morning things went as planned. The second morning another couple was late which caused them to put us in the living room for a 30 minute wait for our table. It was annoying.

The property is well located, with generally good service and food. I'm sure our experience wasn't the first time this happened so should have an over flow area where ou could eat when things get backed up

Room Tip: Our ground floor was good

This property is impeccably appointed and staff are very responsive, friendly, and knowledgeable. (Thanks Holly!) The Inn's staff are so gentle in their approach that guests benefit from the impression that they are the only residents of this magnificent mansion on Lafayette Square - I know we did. The location is terrific and Savannah's 21 other charming squares are only minutes away by foot. The property serves terrific breakfasts (included) and makes treats available in the common areas throughout the day including free wine and hors d'oevres for guests in the evenings. We spent Christmas at the Inn and this was a perfect home-away-from-home.

Room Tip: This is a very vertical building so be prepared for stairs. Some rooms are on the first floor, too...
