This swanky manse stands apart for eschewing the chintzy, Old World atmosphere its Savannah rivals tend to embrace: instead, expect luxe details like onyx and Verona marble, statement furniture and an incredible collection of contemporary art that comprises 400 works by international and local artists, courtesy of owner and avid art collector Richard Kessler. Dining is another highlight: sample upscale home cooking like crab bisque and Frenched pork chop at restaurant 700 Drayton, then cap off a day exploring the city with a hand-crafted cocktail like the Savannah Firefly (hint: it contains Peach Schnapps) at the Bosendorfer Lounge, which sports a magnificent grand piano.
In the Area
Learn to peel shrimp and cook grits like a native Southerner at the hotel’s cooking school, helmed by local celebrity Chef Darin. Cross the street to explore one of Savannah’s most popular squares, the 30-acre Forsyth Park, then get spoiled like a Southern belle at Sweet Water Spa, which offers everything from hot stone massages to mud wraps.
How to Get There
Talk about real southern hospitality! Wow! All the staff at the Mansion & Poseidon Spa were so friendly. From the moment we pulled up they rolled out the red carpet. Our furry baby even got a surprise delivery. We will definitely be returning!
Beautiful hotel and amazing staff who were very accommodating and friendly. Brian Hill and all the valet staff were great, very welcoming, considerate, and fast. Highly recommend the location, right on Forsyth Park and free shuttle to river street. Wonderful soaker tub in room with comfortable beds.
Travis Green was the best valet and gave great recommendations. He was sweet, kind and beyond helpful. I would come back to this hotel just because of him! Thank you for being so wonderful and I can’t wait to come back.
Made the mistake of staying downtown of River St. on Saturday night. Very loud! This was several blocks away from the party and sits across from Forsythe Park. You can still get to the historic areas and homes within a 20 minute walk or less. Rooms were clean and inviting. Restaurant was good and art is everywhere. Some of it a bit odd and some a bit revealing but I'm thing the thought was to go with the Mansion theme. We had reservations at a restaurant 5 minutes away but it was raining. They provided umbrellas.
Love the location of this property. It is on the edge of beautiful Forsyth Park. Quiet location yet easy to walk to all the historic squares, restaurants, and riverfront. If you are not inclined to walk they do provide a shuttle service to their sister property the Bohemian Hotel by the riverfront. The service was wonderful from the drivers, bellhops, to the front desk and lounge/restaurant servers. Our room was on the top floor which was quiet. We occupied a King room which had plenty of space for two people.
Overall, this was our second time here and it did not disappoint us. Great stay.
