When we arrived we were greeted by Kellty. She was very sweet and kind. We were escorted to our room that was very charming. My husband had assistance by Troy with locating a safe spot for vehicle. We never moved our car during the entire time we visited. Breakfast was wonderful and the special attention received each time we were greeted to the main house. Wonderful establishment that will be visited again.

Love this B&B

Pros: The beauty of this B&B
Cons: The only downfall was our room which was right below the evening wine & cheese, dessert meet ups. Quite noisy until around 11 p.m. Room Chatham 110
Location: Near Forsyth Park...Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Trolley tour has a stop so if you do an all day tour you can shop and hop on & off.
A wonderful B&B. We stayed two nights. Suggestions for dinner from Kelly was quite helpful. She even offered to make reservations if needed. A total GEM!

City Center Perfect.

Pros: The home is a decorated beautifully and very well kept.
Location: Savannah is a great place to explore for historical houses and many art galleries.
Cannot say enough how great our experience was. We arrived early and our room was available to check in. The staff gave us a tour of the property then held a parking spot for us as we drove around the block so we could be closer to the property. From the wine and cheese to dessert and coffee in the evening to breakfast in the morning was well worth the room rate. We live in Jacksonville Florida so this was a great overnight time away and we will definitely return.

Savannah Dream

Pros: The staff, the location and the daily breakfast/happy hour/desserts.
Cons: It would be nice if the city would offer parking passes for longer than 2 days for visitors that are booked at a property in the area.
Location: We especially enjoyed our bicycle tour of the historic center and our kayak tour (of Ebenezer creek/swamp). There are loads of good restaurants!
The ETH is a beautiful, historic building. We stayed in one of the patio rooms. It's centrally located and witin easy walking distance to everywhere in the historic district. They offer a full hot breakfast buffet, happy hour with hors d'oeuvres and a dessert bar on a daily basis. The staff are super friendly. They pampered us and treated us like we were their family. They had great tips on restaurants and places to go.

Wonderful place to stay!!

Pros: The amazing staff and beautiful courtyard!
The Eliza Thompson House made our first trip to Savannah an amazing experience! It's located on one of the most beautiful streets in the historic district and it is very near many restaurants and shops. Our room was very comfortable and overlooked a very pretty courtyard. A deluxe continental breakfast was served there every morning. The afternoon wine social was a great way to meet fellow travelers and discuss restaurants and activities. Dessert, coffee and sherry were also available every evening. However, what really made this place stand out was the staff. We didn't want for anything. They made sure we had everything we needed and were all so friendly. Amazing hospitality!! We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else on our next trip to Savannah!

So sadly dissappointing

Pros: Visually gorgeous. Nice furniture. Nice breakfast courtyard.
Cons: Staff transparency about the facts. Odors in the room. Dehumidifier noise.
Booked a main level room, was put on the garden level and told that was main level. Staff had no answer when I asked "so what is the garden level?". That however was quite tolerable as the room was clean, pleansant , even visually gorgeous. Bed was comfortable too. The bathroom had an awful stench - "hold your nose and try to get in and out fast". Appeared to be the drain in the shower. However the kicker was the portable de-humidifier. Roared on and off all night - even adjusting the settings to let the humidity rise didn't keep it from roaring on. Poor night's sleep.
