My husband and I recently stayed for three nights at the Eliza Thompson House for our honeymoon. We stayed in the J Stephens room (room 130) and had a fantastic experience. Here are some of the things we loved:
--The J Stephens room was lovely and spacious, with a bay window on one side looking over the courtyard and two windows on the opposite wall looking over Jones St. The room has a large bed and fireplace, as well as a jet tub in the bathroom. Apparently this used to be Eliza Thompson's master bedroom, and I can see why; it's gorgeous!
--The staff were always helpful and courteous. They gave us meal recommendations and helped us book reservations at restaurants and on a ghost tour. When we thought our jet tub didn't work (it did, we just didn't see a switch that needed to be turned on), they were prompt about checking out the situation.
--There are lots of extra touches that make this place special, like daily hors devours and dessert, umbrellas to borrow in the rain, and chocolates on the bed each night
--The location is wonderful. At first we were concerned that the inn was on the south side of town and not that close to the waterfront, but after a day of seeing Savannah we realized we were staying in one of the prettiest areas of town, much more residential than areas closer to the waterfront. Everything is walkable if you are in decent shape.
I was surprised at some of the negative reviews on this site. Either my husband and I expect less than some people, or they've made improvements recently, but we really had no complaints.
