My husband and I had a wonderful few days celebrating our 15th wedding Anniversary in the Savannah Georgia area. My husband did all the planning for this trip and it was the first time I relinquished control and let him do it! It was the best trip and we had such a great time.
He choose to stay at the Marshall House right in the heart of Savannah, GA. We had stayed here about 7 years ago when he surprised me with a trip for my birthday however, I was in 1 month of giving birth to our 5th child. Though I loved seeing the city I was rather uncomfortable and it was really hard for me to walk. It was so much fun to come back and appreciate all the great sites of Savannah.
Marshall house is one of the oldest hotels in Savannah. It is a bed and breakfast hotel. In the civil war the hotel was used as a hospital and then later turned back into a hotel. The reception area that you walk into is above. The rich red walls and southern décor makes you feel right at home. They have a wine and cheese reception every evening.
Every morning they serve yummy southern food in a continental style breakfast in the center court yard area located just outside the reception area. The interior rooms look down into this center court yard.
Here are a few of the halls. There is so much southern character through out the hotel and is rich with history.
The sleeping quarters are not huge in size but, very rich with old southern charm and history.
The floors through out the hotel are original wood floors. I loved all the scratches and old charm to them. To think how many people have walked the halls and the stories they must tell.
How much more southern can you get with a claw foot bath tub? I loved the details in the bathroom.
Each room has a fireplace though not in use anymore but, look at the old brick. Also above the doors are the windows…all the doors are original wood doors and authentic to the building.
We learned last time that this hotel has rumors of ghost stories and hauntings. Being that is was used as a civil war hospital at one point I am sure many people did die here. We also learned from our the Ghost tour we went on that Savannah is the most haunted city in the U.S. We didn’t experience anything crazy the 2 nights we stayed but, definitely go on a ghost tour if you come to Savannah.
Over all our experience and service here was great. The bed was comfortable and the morning breakfast was great. The only draw back I had was on the 2nd night which was a Friday night there were many hotel guests that were coming and going through out the night. With the wood floors, older building and guests that weren’t being courteous to those actually wanting to sleep it was really loud. It is a wonderful southern place to stay if you come to Savannah and I recommend giving it a try.
