We just returned home from Savannah a day early because we
were so uncomfortable at the Forsyth Park Inn. We stayed in Room #7 one of the two highest priced rooms. The room faced the park which we thought would be lovely however it was just noisey. The traffic whizzes by day and night, the windows have cracks and don't close tightly and the window coverings are only blinds and sheer curtains which do nothing to block noise or street light. However the most distressing issue with this room is the bathroom which is shabby and unsafe. The shower is located in a small and narrow claw foot tub which is 22" off the floor. There are no grab bars to assist in getting in. As soon as you step into the tub it begins to wobble and perhaps that is why there is a washcloth stuffed under a leg! The tub does not drain and the shower liner is too long so you are in ankle deep water with fabric swirling underfoot in an unsteady tub.
The marble in the bathroom is cracked and dirty, there are paint spashes on all the surfaces and a window transom is covered in peeling black paint. All of the metal in the room is rusty. To say the least it is a disaster and should not be rented out at any price! We immediately told the receptionist our concerns about the shower when we checked in but she dismissed us by saying no other rooms were available and there is a no refund policy for early departure. We tried to stick it out but in the end forfited $300.00 just to get out of there.
