There’s no shortage of romantic bed and breakfasts in Savannah, but if you really want to amp up the romance factor, consider booking a room at the Hamilton-Turner Inn. The inn, which Travel and Leisure magazine recently included in its list of Most Romantic Hotels in America, has all the key elements necessary for an amorous getaway for you and your sweetie.
From the building’s striking façade to the beautifully appointed guest rooms, the Hamilton-Turner Inn takes residents back in time to an era in which Southern hospitality reigned supreme. The inn makes the most of its location on Lafayette Square, a charming park in the heart of the Historic District. Many of the inn’s rooms, including the dining room, overlook Lafayette Square’s lush greenery and plentiful magnolia and live oak trees.
An elegant breakfast, served every morning in the aforementioned dining room, is a feast for the eyes and belly. Among the sumptuous fare whipped up by the inn’s chef are French toast topped with homemadae whipped cream, eggs Benedict with hand-carved ham and fresh-baked croissants filled with fluffy eggs. In the late afternoons, guests are invited to a reception featuring wine and hors d’oeuvres. If you’re really trying to impress your significant other, you can even arrange to have champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries delivered directly to your room on a silver tray.
