“Wonderful Stay in Savannah”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2006

I just returned from my first trip to Savannah with my daughter and sisters. Our stay
at the Hamilton-Turner was wonderful. We could not have picked a better place to stay.
The new owners were extremely gracious and went out of their way to make you feel at home. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were amazing and the afternoon wine and hors d'ouvres was a great way to start our evening. I hope to return to Savannah with my husband and there is no doubt where we will be staying. This house has a lot of history which made the stay even more interesting. Our room was very beautiful and the beds were very comfortable. The Hamilton-Turner is in a great location and we were able to walk everywhere. I look foward to staying here again. Thanks for the wonderful time.

Now under new ownership, the Hamilton-Turner Inn is a great place to stay while visiting Savannah. Overlooking the charming Lafayette Sqaure, this inn has beautifully appointed rooms, lavish breakfasts, afternoon wine and cheese hour, & helpful staff. The inn was once briefly the home of Joe Odom and "Mandy" from "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." Lots of tour trolleys and horse-driven carriages pass by it. The house is well air-conditioned, and well insulated so that you don't hear too much outside noise when you are inside. It's centrally located, clean, and orderly. The only major downside is that the hotel has no dedicated parking, so you have to find a parking space on the city streets, and you have to move your car when the streets are swept.

I could not have forseen the change in ownership from the time I booked our stay to the time of our visit. I also cannot imagine a more gracious host and hostess than the new owners of Hamilton-Turner. After only 10 days of ownership they proved to be the perfect hosts and so very helpful in every aspect. They are experienced innkeepers and their experience shows! The breakfasts were something out of Bon Apetit! Perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The home itself is magnificent. The new owners are in the process of "spiffying" up the place which will only make the experience of staying there more memorable. The afternoon wine and hors d'ouvres gave us the chance to meet our fellow "Inn-mates" and share the days experiences. I can't imagine staying anyplace else more beautiful and charming than Hamilton-Turner.

We love to spend time in Savannah and have always stayed at the Hamilton-Turner House.

Jane, Christine and wonderful Staff make each visit special.
We always look forward to our return visit with them.

They make Savannah our home away from home.

We had no idea that our stay would be so delightful. This was our first trip to Savannah and for our Saint Patrick's Day stay and celebration, we chose the quaintness of the Hamilton-Turner Inn in the historical district. The rooms are lovely and comfortable, yet maintain the historical décor. Each day started out with a lovely breakfast in the dining area and each evening started with wine and hors d’oeuvres in the parlor, all wonderfully prepared by Chef Diane. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful, and did their best to assure our stay in Savannah was the best ever. For our next trip to Savannah, the Hamilton-Turner will definitely be at the top of our list. Thanks for a wonderful time, Larry & Judy.

February 2006. The Hamilton-Turner Inn is a majestic old mansion, lovingly restored into a magnificent B&B. It is featured on tours as the first home to receive electricity in Savanna! My wife and I had reserved one of the small ground floor suites on the basis of price (each had a private walk-out to the exterior, a nice touch) but once we had seen the scale of the suite on the second floor with light streaming into the interior through a huge 15 ft.?? bay window - we just HAD to pay the difference for the experience and the memory. Staying two nights was nice as we could really explore the city and this inn is perfectly located - right in the Historic District. We could park and forget the car if avoiding Thursdays. Do take a trolley tour on day #1 to get your bearings of the area. The second day you can use it a shuttle.. stepping on and off at will. Try lunch at the SOHO Cafe-perfect! One night we walked the 3 or 4 blocks and had a perfect dinner in the cozy pub downstairs at the Pink House. A great meal with a huge fireplace and piano accompaniment. Very memorable! Our highest rating to the Hamilton-Turner Inn.

My husband and I just returned from a stay at the Hamilton-Turner Inn and we just can't say enough about it. The Inn is just beautiful (antiques, woodwork, architecture) The rooms were so CLEAN - honestly the SMELL was WONDERFUL - clean, pressed bedding that was dreamy to sleep on. The hosts were as gracious and accomodating as they could be. I must say the chef, Diane, was a delight! Not only did she cook a divine breakfast, as well as hors doerves and sweet treets, but she was as warm and friendly as her cooking was delicious. We absolutely recommend this Inn as the place to stay in Savannah and we can't wait to return.
