My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay in Savannah and were more than pleased with the Foley House Inn. As others have mentioned, the location is superb and directly across from the square where Forrest Gump was filmed (the bench scene.) It is away from the honky tonk river crowd in a beautiful part of the Historic District.
We were there during a major heat wave in the middle of the week, so traffic was light and we were able to pick from a number of rooms at the Foley. We chose 203, a beautiful large room with 4 windows overlooking the terrace because it was right outside the breakfast area and nearest the front door, although a little noisy first thing in the AM when they are fixing breakfast. It was well air conditioned and decorated with period antiques without feeling "stuffy." We were able to see several rooms, and there are very nice ones with larger fabulous bathrooms upstairs. The staff was wonderful, and the hospitality services were outstanding. We loved stopping in periodically to grab a sweet tea and rest from the heat, and the hors d'oeuvres and wine in the evening were lovely. Breakfasts were very southern and plentiful served at individual tables in a cozy drawing room. (Warning . . . go on a diet before coming to Savannah, although it is a walking city so you can work it off before and after!!)
Shannon gave us great recommendations on homes to see and restaurants and shopping. My only suggestions to an otherwise perfect stay . . . a full length mirror behind a door would be nice for dressing. Foley House also has a lot of steps, and would not be good for someone who has trouble with them.
