Everything about the Marshall House was excellent. The location means you do not need a car to enjoy Savananah's historic sights.. Staff was terrific, And the wine and cheese in the afternoon was very enjoyable

This is a beautiful old hotel with all of the quirks & issues you might expect from an old hotel. The floors were extremely creaky, the bathroom was small with no counter space & the whole room was slanted, so much so that if you put a bottle of water on the table near the window it would slide right off. In this context though, these aren't really problems, they are part of the charm of the place. The property is gorgeous throughout, the room was large with a nice view. They did a great job of providing modern amenities in the room without sacrificing the historic feel of the place. The service, from the time we pulled up to the valet to the time we left, was stellar. I travel constantly and can say with confidence that I have never felt so warmly welcomed and cared for as I did at this place. There was a wine/cheese reception in the evening, but we didn't linger long for that because we wanted to go out. We asked the front desk for a restaurant recommendation and not only did he make the recommendation, he called the restaurant, made a reservation & secured us a table with a river view. The location was great, right in the historic district within walking distance to the river. To top all of this off, the room rate was extremely reasonable. The only issue I had at this place was with sleeping that night and that was purely my fault. I did a bunch of Google research on the reported haunting on the property and ended up freaking myself out. Once I did fall asleep everything was great and I was not bothered by anything supernatural.

The Marshall House is a landmark in Savannah. Any of the trolley tours will go past and point it out as the oldest hotel in Savannah, however it is totally modern, well maintained and charming hotel. The complementary breakfast was excellent, as was the wine and cheese offered in the afternoon. The staff is attentive and helpful, especially Jackie and Charles at the desk. My husband and I enjoyed staying in one of the balcony rooms which was a delightful place to have our wine. The balcony is accessed by means of a full length window (which might be a little difficult for some people). The hotel is within walking distance of everything, but most importantly is across the street from Leopold's and the best ice cream ever!

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are really cool, but the balcony access via the window is a little tricky.

We were very pleased with our stay at Marshall House. Although the rooms are small due to the historic nature of the building, everything was lovely, clean and the staff friendly. The location was perfect for exploring all Savannah has to offer on foot, and the only time we actually had to drive was to go out to Tybee Island.

This was our first stay in a B&B and we chose a winner. The staff was very helpful and attentive. The Marshall House is located just right to walk to just about anywhere in the historic district. We walked everywhere!! We chose one of the smaller rooms but it was perfect for 2. Very lovely and charming. Room 220 at end of hall was quiet. Sometimes at night I would notice the heating/cooling unit coming on but I guess I was a light sleeper due to the ghost stories we heard on one of our tours.

Room Tip: Room 220 is at end of long hall and we found it quiet.

Our stay at the Marshall House in downtown Savannah was both comfortable and relaxing. The staff was very helpful, especially when providing tips for getting the most out of the city in a short amount of time. This historic hotel has managed to meld old and new, maintaining the antique atmosphere while providing modern amenities. The evening wine and cheese service was well stocked and replenished as needed. The breakfast, too, was plentiful and varied enough in choices. We will definitely stay at the Marshall House on future visits to Savannah.

My husband and I planned a visit with friends and selected the Marshall House after looking at several other options. It has a great location for walking to many places in the historic district. The library inside was nicely decorated and we appreciated the wine and cheese hour in the afternoon. Our room was clean and comfortable. We found the staff considerate and helpful. We worked with Charles and Joseph, and found them to be most helpful in providing local information, and accommodating our schedule. If we ever return to Savannah, we will be sure to go to this location again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th floor were quiet and provided good sleep atmosphere.
