Southern Charm Guarantees Sweet Dreams in Savannah's Appealing Hotels and B&Bs

In a city known for southern hospitality, it's no wonder that Savannah has such an impressive range of accommodations. From cozy B&Bs - many of them tucked into 19th century mansions - boutique hotels and sleek nationally branded resorts, there's plenty to choose from.

Traditional favorites include the Gastonian Inn, Ballastone Inn, Hamilton-Turner Inn and Mansion on Forsythe. Visitors in search of well known brands can check into riverfront favorites such as the Westin Harbor Golf & Spa Resort, Savannah Marriott Riverfront and Hyatt Regency Savannah.

History buffs may prefer the unique charisma reflected in the Historic District's Hilton Savannah DeSoto, Savannah Courtyard Historic District and Holiday Inn Historic District.

Popular boutique hotels are wowing visitors with their blend of "something old, something new" touches. Current darlings include the Andaz Savannah and Bohemian Hotel.

For visitors on a budget, numerous choices abound outside of the city's Historic District. Inexpensive, well-maintained hotels and motels include Homewood Suites by Hilton Savannah and Hilton Garden Inn Savannah Midtown both located just a few miles from the Historic District.

No matter where you settle, you're sure to find Savannah's legendary excellent service and attention to detail, for which the South is so well known. As travelers from all over will find, "Southern Hospitality" is alive and well in this charming city.
