Great location in a great city Concierge was pretty much useless. Couldnt make his computer work and tried to get us to eat only at their bar.
The Mansion opened right before I left Savannah and I have been wanting to stay there ever since! It definitely did not disappoint. The room had a view of the park and was beautifully appointed (the bathroom was spectacular). The restaurant was as good as remembered and one of my favorites- it has the look and feel people go to the Pink House for but with better food. The entire hotel and restaurant just felt very 'Savannah'- romantic and haunting. The staff was charming and friendly and I especially loved being surrounded on all sides by art! Not much not to like. I wish there was a free parking option (valet was great - friendly and accommodating) but steeply priced for the area (especially as it is their own parking lot right behind the building). Also, have never been to a 4-5 star hotel that did not have free wifi.
Than mansion itself is stunning. Beautiful decor, art, loved the room. We stayed for a week & our keys had to be replaced 5 times in that week. There were no comps or anything even offered for all of our issues with the room keys. I thought we should have been offered some sort of severance for the problems that we had. For that, I was disappointed. Also the food we ordered from room service was very overpriced & not flavorful. We had a salad & a sandwich, which was $50 & they forgot my dressing. The menu, at least for room service, was unimpressive.
This is a true one of a kind boutique hotel. Wonderfully quirky, beautiful architecture and interior design. Well trained and attentive staff. Phenomenal bar and restaurant. So much more wow factor than the newer Kessler properties like the Bohemia brand. My biggest gripe with all 5 star properties (not just Kesslers) is the higher the price point the more they "al a carte" basic services such as parking, internet service, in room amenities, and "resort fees". These surprise upcharges ruin what other wise would be an excellent experience. As a recently retired traveler these charges more often than not discourage me from being a repeat customer. OK, I get paying for parking at say "The Waldorf" in NYC. Most guests don't drive there. But $22/night to park behind the building on their own property at The Mansion is absurd. And $10 for WIFI? Really? Get a grip. We're not all travelling on OP money anymore.
The property itself is very cool - chandeliers, marble, velvet furniture, modern art, sculptures everywhere. The location is also great in that you're about a mile or so to the main dining/shopping area. The service here is terrible but I'm under the impression it's terrible everywhere in Savannah, not just here. In fact, I'd go as far as to say it's a southern thing. Nevertheless, we paid 5 star prices to stay here (by southern standards) and expected 5 star service. The staff failed in this area, HARD. Examples: they didn't set up the sparkling wine service we ordered for arrival; they screwed up our room service order (literally, I ordered plain pasta with red sauce and they couldn't understand my order, so I got pasta drenched in butter); we requested a trash can several times before giving up; we had to request more toilet paper, tissues, coffee creamer, stirrers, etc., because housekeeping didn't leave it. Come on. On a side note, the amenities here are really low end. I didn't bring any shower products thinking what they'd provide would be sufficient. I ended up buying some cheap travel size things from CVS because the products here are even worse than drug store quality. This hotel needs to do a better job of staff training if it wants to be a lux hotel. As it stands right now, I've had better service at a Hampton Inn.
I have lived in Savannah all of my life and am a current New York City transplant. I had recently come home to visit my family and decided to stay at the mansion. The hotel was gorgeous - a mixture of old southern charm and the MET. The staff was also great. Very pleasant and met my every need. I would definitely stay here again if I got another chance
The room was charming, spacious and nice. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was very good and the staff excellent. If you like a hot shower...you're not getting one here. The water was warm at best. We didn't even turn on the cold side and it was still just warm. The building is old (charming) so you can hear the people above you moving around.
Catherine Ward House Inn was totally charming, beautifully furnished, conveniently located and the staff went out of their way to see that you enjoyed your stay. The breakfasts were delicious and elegant. Best grits I've ever had! The inn is not handicap accessible.
Awesome staff and very nice house. Food was an amazing bonus. Not a thing
The Inn keeper was so nice and friendly and she was very helpful in sending us out in the right direction. Our room was so lovely and felt very Savannah but had all the modern technologies we needed. Our breakfast was exactly as we ordered. Nothing!
I took my mom and 13 year old daughter for a long birthday, Girl Scout, shopping weekend. The staff was awesome at Forsyth Park Inn. The breakfast was wonderful (try the homemade granola) and was very filling. The room was comfy and cool after a long day of exploring the city. Across the street is historic Forsyth Park with ancient trees and history around every corner. If you get a chance, go to the Saturday morning Farmers Market for fresh fruit popsicles. Looking forward to going back next year!
The location was outstanding. The building had a beautiful historical design. The hospitality of the staff was true and made us feel very welcomed.
The Forsyth Inn was wonderful and the staff was great and very helpful. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. The staff aided us with our sojourns in Savannah. We had a fantastic time and would stay at the Forsyth Inn again.
The staff were amazing and very helpful. The breakfast, wine and hors d'oeuvres on the porch and the dessert buffet were such nice touches. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend.
Dwayne, Jerry and the rest of the staff were so accommodating. From the delicious breakfast to the afternoon cocktails and snacks and evening dessert it was first rate. There advise was spot on and we had a wonderful time!
I loved the staff. They made my wife and I feel completely at home. Nothing.
The staff were all very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was excellent, the room was clean and perfect. I highly recommend Forsyth Park Inn Bed and Breakfast. They personalize your stay just to what you want. There was nothing that we did not like.
This old home is situated in the historic district across from Forsyth Park and is exactly as advertized. Comfortable rooms with high ceilings, nice breakfast served every morning and an evening happy hour with wine or sangria and snacks. On our first night that included a backed wheel of brie. My only complaint, which is certainly not within the control of the owners, was the 24/7 road noise out front. This is one of the few roads with straight cuts from town that do not go around the little parks/squares, and everything from motorcycles to tractor trailers use it. If you want a little more quiet, try and get a room at the rear of the house or the small cottage in the courtyard.
