There are few places that are simultaneously eccentric and dignified, holding fast to their gracious and grandiose history while also teeming with unapologetic vivacity. And yet, these are precisely the complementary disparities with which Savannah bewitches visitors time and time again. Get swept up in this Southern study in contrasts when you Escape to the "Hostess City of the South."
Appease your craving for all things stately and luxurious with this Escape to the Lowcountry at Presidents' Quarters Inn, a lodging awarded Best Savannah Inn and Best Local Romantic Inn / B&B by Savannah magazine. Sixteen guest rooms, each of which is named after a former commander-in-chief who visited the city, boast antiques and traditional furnishings, refurbished bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi. The inn's other complimentary amenities include: on-site parking, nightly turndown service, and staff assistance for town activities.
"With its gorgeous mansions, cotton warehouses, and Colonial public buildings, Savannah preserves its past with pride, grace, and a slight smirk," says Lonely Planet. "Savannah revels in being the bad girl... and in some ways it resembles a pint-sized New Orleans. Savannah loves its sinful pleasures, be they cheese grits [or] cocktails."
Discuss the day's agenda over a complimentary breakfast for two each morning, which may include Anna's Pecan Praline French Toast, homemade quiche, and an assortment of fresh fruit. The historic district of Savannah is right outside your door, so rent some wheels from Bicycle Link to scoot around town; stop by the famous Leopold's Ice Cream for a scoop or two; and then stroll over to the inn's neighbor, the Owens-Thomas House, considered one of the finest examples of English Regency architecture in America.
In the evening, unwind with wine and hors d'oeuvres in the garden. Then, opt for a sunset tour with Captain Mike's Dolphin Tours. For authentic Southern cuisine, a good candidate is Alligator Soul, where dishes like fried green tomatoes and shrimp gumbo rule the menu.
