Reviewed April 9, 2013

The Marshall House is a wonderful historical hotel with a lot of charm. From the iron balcomies on the outside to the beautifully decorated inside. The lobby is spacious and has a wine and cheese reception in the evening (great place to meet fellow travelers). Free Breakfast with a good selection of food. Our room was a superior Queen (has originally fireplace, non-working though) which gave us some extra space. Large armoire in room to store clothing. Bathroom is small but adequate. Both were clean Staff were courteous and the porters were always ready to help you. The hotel's location makes it walkable to everthing in the historical area. We would easily stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 203 superior queen on the NE side of the hotel was very quiet.

We often travel together as a couple, but rarely splurge on our hotel. In this case we are glad we did. Marshall House gave us a great all-around experience.

We chose a small room to manage our costs, so I don't necessarily have a lot of good things to say (other than the bed, which was excellent).

But the property was a terrific place to spend time in -- the various public rooms were worth spending time in, and it was easy to make acquaintances with fellow guests.

We also found the location to be great -- all the sites were walkable. And the breakfast was terrific. All in all we recommend this for a mid-range-price experience in Savannah.

We stayed in Savannah for two nights on our way to Florida. The decision to stay at the Marshall House was a last minute one and one we are glad we made! It is a charming old hotel with a wonderful staff. Our room was nice, the hotel is convenient to everything, and we didn't encounter any problems. In the early evening they provide appetizers and wine. How great is that?! Encourage anyone to stay at the Marshall House when in Savannah.

The locataion was perfect--we walked to everything. I was impressed that the hotel has been able to keep the original sourthern charm while still modernizing. There were 4 in our group, and the room we had was large enough, but i do wish there had been more room to store luggage and clothing. The staff was friendly, helpful, and very knowledge about the area. We will stay at this hotel again when we return to Savannah.

History abounds at the Marshall House. Orginally a 1855 boarding house, which was turned into a hospital during the Civil War this hotel has a significant amount of history including stories about ghosts! Staff was superb! Free breakfast and housekeeping was average. No fitness center, which was a disappointment. The location was walking distance from everything in the old city of Savannah.

We stayed for 3 nights recently for a friend's wedding. First of all, the location is fantastic - we never needed take so much as a taxi at any point. The staff were awesome and the free breakfast every morning was really nice, but our room was really small. I can look past this though because it's obviously a really old building, and considering that it's incredibly well maintained. Other than the small room, thin walls, and a ceiling fan that made annoying noises, I have zero complaints. Overall I would probably stay again, but for the price I might try other spots just for variety.

We were here last year in April and when we decided to come back to Charleston we looked at some other choices but came right back to the Marshall House. Yes, you may not have a view but remember you are staying in a downtown historic area. The location is fantastic. Walking distance to almost everything. The friendly staff will do anything they can to make your stay enjoyable. The buffet is average and could be improved but don't let that small thing stop you. Hint; Ask for one of the "Garden Suites". You will not be disapointed. Plenty of space for a couple for a special occasion or just a time away. Another hint; when you are ready to make a reservation call and talk to them, explain what you want and they will help you get the room that is right for you.
