Savannah's Romantic Hotels Combine Southern Hospitality, Old World Charm and Luxury



There's no better way to keep the blush on romance than by tucking yourselves into a dreamy hotel or inn. Fortunately, Savannah has a history of romance and offers a host of selections ranging from posh boutique hotels, to cozy Bed and Breakfast establishments and quaint inns.

The Historic District is the obvious choice for venerable mansions-turned-hotels and what better place to start than with the Gastonian? Tucked into a 19th-century Regency-Italianate-style mansion near Forsyth Park, it personifies romance with rich antiques, fireplaces in each room and secluded gardens - and it's for adults only.

Other sweet picks in the Historic District are the Ballastone Inn, the Kehoe House and Hamilton-Turner Inn, all of which offer luxury, excellent service and delicious breakfasts.

For something more modern, the swanky Bohemian Hotel overlooking the Savannah River houses 75 stylish rooms and suites - some with balconies - and maritime-inspired décor with 18th-Century style and modern amenities.

The Marshall House - the city's oldest hotel - is another good choice as it is romantic and also has easy access to some of the city's best restaurants, bars and shops.
