Savannah, GA – Boutique Hotels & More

Unparalleled style and grace are the traditional hallmarks of a true Southern belle. And, of course, she should be welcoming always and gracious to a fault. Such is the charming city of Savannah, aptly dubbed “The Hostess City.” And the city is a remarkable hostess indeed.

Finding a city more enchanting than Savannah is certainly a challenge. Home of one of the largest National Historic Landmark District in the United States, the Hostess City of the South is chock full of antebellum architecture, cobblestone streets, and more charm than you thought possible. Add in some waterfront views, a vibrant arts scene, and towering oak trees covered in Spanish moss and you have a recipe for an unforgettable getaway. Oh, watch out for the ghosts!

As the oldest city in Georgia, Savannah is home to a rich and storied history; some tales are true and some are open to debate. You’d think that as the first planned city in the U.S. – filled with grid-like streets and public squares – that the city would have a neat and tidy history. But nothing could be farther from the truth. From the American Revolution, through the wealth of cotton and the horrors of the slave trade, to the Civil War, through the turn of the century, and up through the “Savannah Renaissance”, the city has continued to grow and flourish.
