Romantics and history buffs will thrill at the old-fashioned Southern charm that permeates every aspect of the inn, from the cozy rooms named for famous figures from Savannah’s rich history, to the décor, all crystal chandeliers and 19th century antiques. The free gourmet treats are a highlight: hearty home-made breakfasts, dainty evening appetizers served with wine, and decadent desserts served in the parlor–all great occasions to mingle with fellow guests.
In the Area
Experience one of America’s oldest and most picturesque cities the old-fashioned way–via trolley car, visiting the waterfront and the historic squares, with their sun-dappled pathways, magnolia trees and Gothic charm. See life through the prism of the Civil Rights movement at the Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum, then visit Wormsloe Historic Site, a former plantation reached via an avenue flanked with live oaks and Spanish moss.

Spent 7 nights at the Kehoe House. Best food we had in Savannah was breakfast each morning. The staff was so attentive and took care of our every need or want. We travel quite a bit and this was one of the best inns we have ever stayed in.
I've been thinking about how best to write my review of the Kehoe House, as we found our romantic weekend getaway there a mixed experience and would give it an overall rating of 3 1/2 stars. Perhaps the issue for us was that the website and other reviewers set our expectations fairly high. In addition, the $550/night price for the Oglethorpe suite (billed as one of the best in the Inn) brought with it some level of luxury expectation. Overall, we were fairly disappointed.
First, the positive: The Inn overall is a lovely property in the heart of the historic district. It was very easy to walk to most sites in Savannah from the hotel. Another positive, as mentioned by many other reviewers, is the staff. They are friendly, helpful, and empowered to immediately address issues as they arose. We appreciated greatly their helpfulness.
The opportunities for improvement: The room furnishings and amenities are in need of improvement for the price point. I understand furnishing the rooms in keeping with the time period, but some aspects were just tired and worn-out. The bathroom was a major disappointment with a circa 1990 bathtub/shower combo and difficult space to use. Sheets were pilled and pulled. Our room said it had a private balcony, which it did, but you had to climb through the window (there wasn't an actual door to the balcony) to use it. Lastly, breakfast, while very accommodating of dietary restrictions was also very average at best.
For an Inn charging top dollar and billing itself as one of the most romantic locations in the U.S., I simply expected more from the room, it's furnishings, and amenities. The overall rating reflects the location, property itself, and the lovely staff which made for a nice weekend despite feeling that I overpaid for what was delivered.
