We enjoyed our stay at the Confederate House. At first we were a bit put off, as it is at the far end of historic Savannah. However, it is across from Forsythe Park which is a great place to jog or walk for exercise. From the outside, it looked very old and in need of work, but as soon as we walked in all was good. The parking is in the back and very convenient. It is well lit when you come in after dark. The place was spotless. Very clean. The hostess was nice and gave us info when we asked. Though it is on the far edge of downtown, it is an easy walk to the middle of the city. There is always cake, coffee, tea, sodas and water on the first floor available to guests.
Our room was large and spotless. the bed was very comfortable. It had a large closet. (side note: they do need to add hangers for pants. they had plenty of padded hangers--a very nice touch--but no hangers for pants). The plasma TV was fun when you wanted to watch. i also enjoy the divan that was outside our room in the hall foyer. it rained one afternoon for a bit and i laid on the divan for an hour or so and read and napped. the Bathroom was spotless. I would have liked to have 2 large towels per person instead of just one and it does need more towel racks as there is no place to hang towels once you use them. also, i was surprised that the cups were styrofoam. it would have been a nice touch to have nicer cups in the bathroom.
Breakfast is served beautifully. lovely china and silver. It is nice that the hostess eats breakfast with you. the food was OK..nothing great. very generic-mediocore OJ and ok eggs or pancakes. nothing special but adequate. i did enjoy though that there was fresh fruit each day.
An added bonus is the hotel that is located next door to the confederate house. It is a five star hotel. ( i think it is called The Mansion). they have a great jazz bar and it was wonderful to go there, have a few drinks and walk next door to our room.
