Mansion on Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia

Savannah, Georgia, is one of America's most interesting cities. Its series of squares, coupled with its superstitious nature, makes it a fascinating find. In the heart of the city's Historic District is the magnificently restored 1888 Mansion on Forsyth Park, a AAA Four-Diamond property. Mansion on Forsyth Park gives southern comfort new meaning with its collection of lavish guest rooms, an extensive art collection featuring more than 400 original pieces, and opulent public rooms including a lobby cloaked in onyx marble. Classic décor along with modern conveniences create a historic and indulgently luxurious hideaway.

Mansion on Forsyth Park's restaurant, 700 Drayton, is a stunning dining destination with a menu of savory specialties and an extensive wine list. There is also Casimir's Lounge, located on the second level of the restaurant and featuring live jazz and blues on the weekends, as well as the Bosendorfer Lounge. You can also visit the Poseidon Spa, hone your culinary skills by enrolling in one of the Mansion's cooking classes, or relax poolside. There is never a shortage of things to see in "America's Most Haunted City" - do a little ghost busting on a haunted history tour, or take a trek on foot to admire the splendid architecture, with many door frames, porches and window sills coated in "Haint Blue" to ward off evil spirits. More conventional activities might include shopping along the riverfront, slipping into a jazz club, or dining at The Pirates House, named for long-ago patrons who frequented the eatery in the late 1700s, which was the inspiration for Robert Lewis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

I booked two very expensive deluxe view rooms for a family celebration. The location is very nice, across the street from Forsyth Park and right on the trolley routes. This is an historic building with beautiful artwork in the bar area and hallways. That is the extent of the "good" part. The staff and accommodations were terrible. We arrived early and I told the front desk clerk that we would be out sightseeing for the day and did not expect an available room. She insisted that she had two rooms ready. She offered me the first floor with a park view or a third floor room with no view. I was confused because I already paid for a deluxe park view. Basically, if I wanted to pay more for no view, we could check in early . Or, we could check in now with the view I paid for. I should have known something was up. I took the first floor, park view. Initially, it seemed like we had nice rooms, although, you had to walk behind the front desk to access them. We were in 101 and 102. Avoid these like the plague if you do decide to stay there. They are across from the luggage storage area and back up to the outside and actual driveway and bell stand. Only a completely deaf person would be able to tolerate 101. There was a wedding reception on the patio area with a DJ that sounded like he was in my bathroom until after midnight. After that, the hotel elevator music took over. You can actually record it inside the room. Overall, the staff was much less than helpful. When we checked in we did not even receive the paper with the daily activities or list of restaurants. I had to get tickets for the trolley from a front desk clerk. That took 25 minutes because of some printer malfunction. The concierge that was supposed to do that sort of thing was MIA the entire time we were there. The desk was there, but no staff. I called to complain about the noise, but no relief. Upon checkout, I again told the front desk staff. He was completely disinterested and said he would "mention it" to someone. I filled out the survey and again complained about not being able to sleep after spending over $800 for the rooms. I received a very terse form letter in reply. Finally, I wrote a regular letter to the hotel general manager. He never bothered to reply. If you really want to see the building, park on the side street and walk around inside for a few minutes. Do not waste money staying here. We are Miarriott gold members and entitled to access the executive lounge. Again, I was underwhelmed. It is a small, converted hotel room with a couch and 3 small tables for two. There is a limited breakfast but nowhere to sit. After that, you can access some soda and water for a few hours during the evening. The rooms themselves are good size. The bathroom is very strange. There is a separate water closet inside the bathroom, however, it has glass doors. Really? I saw previous reviews and couldn't imagine that, but it is true. There is a separate stall shower inside this large bath area, but it is very tiny. A large man would be uncomfortable in in. Also, there is a jetted tub. The tub area has Dutch doors that open to the bedroom area. Kind of like a window. So, if you open those window/doors, you can see everything in the bathroom, including the glass toilet area and the shower. I think the interior designer may have been under the influence of something. The final proof that this is a poorly managed hotel occurred when we were waiting for an Uber driver. The wedding party was coming back from the park. The groom headed in a side door. The bride, in a very large gown with a train, was trying to get back through the front door of the hotel. The attendant had all the flowers in both hands. My son went over and held open the doors for them. There was no staff in sight- bell stand or valet to help her. Also, the wedding reception and other festivities were all at the hotel. A really well run hotel would have had somebody keeping track of the bride. Overall, I think this is the most disappointed I have ever been in an upscale property.

I agree with previous reviews that the hotel is in need of some deep cleaning and renovations. The floor in the bathroom needed a steam cleaning of the grout. Also not sure why there were glass doors in the bathroom with a larger door over the bathtub area. The staff was very nice and the bar area had some great music while we were there. We had the pool area to ourselves during the afternoon, not sure why more people don't use this area. We always book the concierge level for afternoon snacks and breakfast. Breakfast was great! Afternoon snacks consisted of chips and granola bars???? The location did not bother me. We took advantage of the free shuttle to the sister hotel on the river. But the walk down Bull Street should definitely not be missed.

We stayed at the Mansion for a short honeymoon getaway. We booked the Concierge level for some extra special treatment but found it lacking. While they did serve a 'full breakfast, there were no other meal or snack options during the day. Additionally, past soda and water, there were no adult beverage options as you see in many other concierge lounges at similar properties. Our room was conveniently located right next to the lounge (404) and while it was nice to be that close, beginning at 6:00am every morning, we would hear dishes, glasses, pots, pans being rattled and banged as breakfast was being prepared. On day 2 we opted to not say anything for fear of a room change and my wife did not want to re-pack / unpack at that stage. But at checkout, when I mentioned the issue and asked for some consideration, a BIG SHOW was made of "I have to talk with my manager" and after several minutes was told 'you should have said something and we would have moved you. We can do nothing now'. NO CONSIDERATION AT ALL. I pointed out that we spent $500+ in the art gallery and $180 on cooking school and $24/night to park in their lot!! Did I mention that I HATE spending money to park on the hotels own property? They would not even waive this as consideration. All in all it was an "OK" experience but the lack of consideration for the noise left a bad taste in my mouth. We love Savannah but not sure that I would return to this property again. Oh, did I mention the 2:30am false fire alarm...

Great staff who were knowledgeable and competent. Interesting Art work within the hotel. The room was spacious and well maintained. The Location was perfect right off the park and quiet at night. There is a well appointed restaurant attached which had great food and great service. My wife and I used the spa services within the hotel's dedicated spa and found it to be a relaxing and restorative experience. I really have no complaints.

This was our first trip to Savannah, and we loved the cool vibe of this hotel. All of the public spaces feel dramatic and inviting. The room itself was clean and nice, but the bathroom layout is poorly designed with a very small shower and a clear glass door to the toilet area. There is no privacy if someone is using the sink at the same time. The location is fine, right across the street from manicured Forsyth Park, but it is about a 10 minute walk to the heart of the historic downtown area and about a mile (25 minute walk) to the riverfront. The staff was very helpful and friendly, from the front desk to the doormen to the valets (parking is valet only). Wish the breakfast that was included on the concierge level had more variety. Overall, a wonderful stay!
