The Mansion House is one of the most exclusive hotels in Savannah, enjoying a prestigious address and a prime location at the heart of the Historic District. Each of the 125 guestrooms and suites exudes luxury and comfort, with sophisticated furnishings including an oversized bathtub and soft bedding into which you will longingly slip after a day’s sightseeing. ‘700 Drayton Restaurant’ is situated in one of the original mansions on Forsyth Park, featuring fresh seafood and regionally inspired delights. Pay a visit to the rooftop ‘Caisimir’s Lounge’, where signature cocktails and great live jazz and blues await, and if you crave a specially mixed aperitif accompanied by savoury appetisers, drop in to ‘Bosendorfer Lounge’ before dinner. When you’re not out and about, you could be pampered at the ‘Poseidon Spa’, take a hands-on cooking class or simply lounge by the hotel pool.
Named after the Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion, this iconic hotel, situated in the heart of the Historic District of Charleston, became an instant landmark when it opened in 1924.
