excellent , beautiful, hotel. Very efficient employees.

I can't say enough about this hotel. It is a "WOW" from the time you walk in to the time you leave. Superb! More orientated for adults, not children, which is great for me. Easy access & transportation for anywhere you wish to visit. I stayed at this hotel one year ago, and will continue to go there every year. It is located on the most beautiful park for daily strolls. It has a massive gorgeous fountain. This is like a home away from home, so peaceful & relaxing, great restaurant, beautiful swimming pool area. I just love it!

Garish Disappointment

The artwork and appointments may appeal to some tastes, but not what you expect in a "mansion"--unless the owner is somewhat crazed. Absence of insulation between the walls enables you to clearly hear the conversations in the next room, whether you want to or not. The "concierge lounge" is improvised from two rooms above the restaurant, devoid of any charm or comfort. This establishment has potential that appears to suffer from investors seeking to maximize their profit with no concept of gracious hospitality.

Great birthday locale/girl's weekend

The hotel was incredible and great place to spend a big birthday with friends. Manager Elisa was wonderful as were the valets and bell boys. The Cooking School there is worth it and Gavin in the bar makes great non-alcoholic drinks. front desk staff messed up the bill and had a bit of an attitude about it all, which took a little of the shine off the stay but I would recommend it just watch out for cranky front desk staff.

A gem!

Loved this hotel. Staff was incredibly accommodating, room lovely with the exception of no lights to read by, location is 7 blocks from river but right on a free shuttle line. Don't eat in restaurant, however. Awful. I would definitely return but would NOT use travel site used. It was too complicated trying to get in touch with their staff (which turned out to be abroad) to make simple date changes in reservation.

Unique Hotel

The rooms were spacious and very nice, although there wasn't much privacy since fabric curtains were the only thing separating the bathroom from the bedroom. Great location right across from Forsyth Park & within walking distance of downtown.

I stay here every year, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else! If you want the history, class and comfort, then this is where you need to be. Shuttles between the Mansion and Bohemian properties made even the rain go away..FABULOUS!

Outstanding service

This is a fine hotel in a good and quiet location. But the best part of the experience was the friendliness and competence of the staff. At every level they were helpful and had a positive attitude. We would definitely chose this hotel again on any return trip to Savannah. As an added plus there is a very good restaurant-the local11ten- a five minute walk away. The river and night life is a little farther, but the hotel has a shuttle to take you there.

Always amazing!

We were married here 5 years ago and we returned to celebrate our anniversary over the weekend. The hotel has not changed one bit in 5 years. Still as beautiful as ever. The staff was fantastic, as always, and even sent us a bottle of wine with assorted cheeses as an anniversary gift. They also comped our dessert at their restaurant, 700 Drayton, as well. It felt like we were welcomed "home" and, 5 years later, we still could not be any happier that we were married at the beautiful and elegant Mansion on Forsyth Street. This is a place we will be returning for many many years.

Visited April 4th-8th, 2013

Hotel staff was incredible!! Location is good, room was beautiful. We had the Forsyth View which overlooks the park, this was a very nice view. However, if you want to try to sleep in, do not get the Forsyth view. It is a very active park and when the music starts at 8am and you were out till 1am...it does not work well!! Have the Leopold's ice cream while you are at the hotel. Good location because there is a tour bus pickup on the corner next to the hotel's restaurant. Forsyth park is great to walk in, cafe in it across from the hotel for coffee and breakfast.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

A friend of our's suggested this and it worked out great! Your first day in Savannah do the bus tour and spend the extra $2.00 per ticket and get the on/off pass. You can get on or off at every stop and really scout the city. We ended up using it almost like a taxi- only cheaper! Also made the rest of the trip more enjoyable since we knew where we wanted to go.

Perfect property

Top notch hotel in perfect location. Don't be fooled - the riverfront is touristy and overpriced for what it is. Forsyth Park is absolutely beautiful, and when you stay here you get to walk through it every time you leave the hotel. It's only a 15-20 minute walk to the river and you walk through 3 squares along the way. This hotel is where it's at.
