About Savannah

There are few travel brochures as beguiling and persuasive as ‘Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil’. It shows up the languid romance and graceful old beauty of this proper Southern Belle magnificently. The warmth and the grand colonial architecture lead to evening strolls and late meals and the Spanish moss literally dripping from the trees makes it seem other worldly and a bit magical. Many of our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Savannah are in the historic district where the generously proportioned mansions sit quietly around beautiful squares.

But if you’re looking for somewhere lively then you’ll find revelry too, just choose one of the best places to stay in Savannah’s central district.

As well as strolling along the river and in and out of the old squares admiring the architecture - including the Mercer-Williams House portrayed in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil’ - Savannah’s history is also worth unpicking, so make time during your stay to visit the Wormsloe Plantation Site - which occupies a wonderfully dreamy spot on the Isle of Hope, and the Savannah History Museum.

Savannah also has a Museum of Art and an Academy of Arts and Sciences. And there are some really great parks - including Forsyth Park with its amazing fountains. City Market is where you’ll find a lot of the affordable art studios Savannah is also known for.

And you’ll probably also find it easy to lose yourself in several of the cosy little bars, cafes and restaurants you’ll find on your strollings. There’s a Southern saying that the first thing they’ll ask you in Atlanta is your business, the first thing they’ll ask you in Charleston is your Mother’s maiden name and the first things they’ll ask you in Savannah is what you’d like to drink!

Don't forget to plan well ahead if you want to guarantee a bed in one of the best places to stay in Savannah....it's an ever popular destination year round.
