Cindy R, Director of Sales at Eliza Thompson House Savannah, responded to this reviewResponded 4 June 2014

I'd like to sincerely apologize to you for your negative experience at our Inn. Parking can be challenging in Savannah, and we do understand your frustration. Like most historic B&Bs in Savannah, Eliza Thompson House is located in a residential neighborhood and has access only to on-street parking. Please do know that having to park such a distance away is quite unusual, as there is normally ample parking within a block or two of the Inn. With that said, there is no excuse for the staff being upset and disturbing you, and I also apologize that the breakfast was inadequate. While we are very sorry you were disappointed with your stay, we do thank you very much for mentioning that our Front Desk staff, as we are very proud of our Staff and their hospitality. The Innkeeper and I have discussed your review, and will be presenting it to our Staff so can address the concerns you mentioned. Again, please accept my apologies for your bad experience. We do hope you'll consider us again when you return to Savannah.

Sincerely,

Cindy Roberts
Director of Sales & Marketing
Eliza Thompson House

My husband selected this Inn and it was incredible! All of the staff was so accommodating, very nice and genuinely helpful. The Inn itself is beautiful, well kept and so clean. The wine and snacks and then dessert and coffee each night was a wonderful touch. Eating breakfast in the courtyard was simply delightful.

The location is great - we found it to be very convenient. While we had a car we mostly walked and it was a great focal point to cover all the areas of Savannah - not too far of a walk anywhere.

I would recommend this place to stay and would absolutely go back in a heartbeat. The staff were all great!

The Eliza Thompson house is a wonderful place to stay at. All of the staff is very friendly. The breakfast in the morning was absolutely delicious. The cook Ms. Virginia is a wonderful cook and one of the nicest people we met in Savannah.

Charming inn conveniently located in the Historic District of Savannah. Street parking is a great option as parking in Savannah can be quite the challenge. Our room was located on the ground level facing the courtyard where breakfast is served. This is lovely in the evening, but be sure the drapes are drawn in the morning as your bed directly faces those enjoying breakfast :-) Our room was nice, but nothing special as B&Bs go. The bathroom was of average hotel caliber -- not charmingly historical like many in Savannah & amenities were average as well, though most appreciated. The breakfast was tasty, but nothing special. Wine & cake in the afternoon are a nice touch and the staff is quite pleasant. This is a great alternative to hotel accommodations when visiting Historical Savannah.

charming old house in heart of Savannah Historic District. Easy walk to Forsyth Park. Had room in the newer part, off the courtyard. Not as cozy as rooms in the main house but comfortable none the less. There is no problem with the noise in your room when breakfast is served in the courtyard; predominant sound is that of the fountain-either you like the sound of flowing water or you don't- we do. Very nice wine and cheese reception at night. Evening manager could use a charm lesson or two, but nothing major. All in all, a good choice if you are in town

Room Tip: try for the main house if it is old world charm you want
