A beautiful hotel in a beautiful city! Great location to shops and restaurants. My family of 5 booked 2 rooms and both rooms were clean and comfortable in size and amenities. No issues with either of the rooms or with the staff, whom were all friendly and helpful.
If I had to state any negative at all, it would be the complimentary breakfast. While it was completely adequate, it wasn't much to rave about--pretty much just bagels and cereals.
This hotel really gives you the true Savannah experience and southern hospitality you might expect. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would definitely return.

Wonderful stay at this historic hotel, highly recommend the balcony rooms for the relaxing view on the porch. Very nostalgic and in the center of historic district within walking to everything! No ghost on 2nd floor.

We stayed one night at The Marshall House on a tour along the East Coast. The Marshall House is one of the oldest hotels in town which is clearly visible from the outside. An old typical building but fully renovated and well tended.
Also on the inside the hotel has been nicely refurbished and is very clean. We had a rather small room but nevertheless nicely decorated in fresh and pleasant colours and the old charm preserved.
Extremely helpful staff, a good introduction to Savannah by the concierge.
We dined in the restaurant and were more than happy with the quality. The breakfast on the other hand we found a bit on the poor side.
Savannah itself was somewhat of a disappointment as it's not the most clean town and definitely would need a face-lift. We might have been spoiled a bit by Charleston. The Marshall House made up for it however.

Just finished out 2 night stay in Savannah at the Marshall House. The staff was friendly and helpful. Valet parking is an extra $15 a day. There really aren't any other cheaper parking options. The location is great...walking distance to places like the Savannah river, Mercer Williams House, city market, some decent restaurants, etc. Breakfast was good but nothing to write home about. A convenient way to start the day if nothing else. We stayed in room 323 which had no view to speak of...just the bright yellow lights of the parking structure next door, and the sound of the early morning trash truck in the alley below. The room was fine. Large comfortable bed. All in all a pleasant stay.

To sum up I'd say this:
If you're thinking about staying here, go for it. I was not disappointed.
However, if we ever make it back to Savannah I think we'd stay somewhere else because I was not super impressed either.

Only good things to say about this hotel. I loved the historic ambience. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel. I wish they would put together a brochure (or include in the in-room guest services book) an explaination of the history of the hotel with pictures over time and point out the interesting features.

We stayed here 2 nights while on a road trip up the East Coast - three generations including 3 kids 9 and under. Lovely place - rooms were large and lovely with very comfortable beds, bathroom was nice enough and clean, hotel décor and common spaces are totally up my alley - love the old historic places. My kids loved the checkers table in the main living space - they played while my sister and I enjoyed the nightly wine and cheese from 5:30-7. Such a nice perk!! Breakfast was also nice - set in the lovely atrium and lots of choices. Again, included in your nightly price so a great perk!! The front desk staff were excellent - Jerry (originally from Brooklyn) helped us with dinner recommendations and we were very happy (check out Huey's on River Street). Both Jerry and Michelle were very friendly and chatted with us, which is a fun part of traveling for us - meeting new people. The only negatives I noticed were the loud ice machine (it was right outside my room, #207), the A/C can be a bit loud when it kicks in (but it works really well!!), and the place is supposedly haunted. I didn't see any of that - and didn't even know until 9 pm the first night thanks to my sister's Google habit - but it didn't affect our stay. Also convenient walking distance to both River Street in one direction and some lovely squares in the other. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: The 3rd floor is supposedly where some haunts have been seen - so you can choose to be a ghost hunte...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Marshall House this past July. Although the hotel is old, that's part of its charm. The furnishings and historical touches really add to its ambience. The weekday Wine and Cheese is a lovely way to unwind from the day and prepare for the evening. Continental breakfasts served in an airy atrium got our days off to a good start.The front desk staff and the concierge were always friendly and helpful. I was also impressed at the cleanliness in both the common areas and the guest rooms. Many of the rooms are small, but we stayed in one (I believe it was Room 305) which gave us ample space. And the location is excellent. We valet parked the car and were able to walk anywhere in the historic district in 15 minutes or less. The only time we needed the car was when we drove to Tybee Island to go to the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, away from the elevator and ice machines.
