A very enjoyable weekend was had by my husband, parents, and me to celebrate my mother's birthday. The staff was really incredible - gracious, accomodating, unfailing polite, and provided excellent service with a smile.
Thank you to Sari McAfee and the other woman concierge (sorry I do not have your name) who assisted us in many ways, to Lionel at the front desk, who was kindness personified, the bellhops, doormen, & valet attendents (although we did not avail ourselves of this service, but chose to street park), the kind man who delivered a mini fridge to our room at 11 pm, the cleaning staff, the pleasant bartenders at Casmir's Lounge - you are all to be commended for your professionalism. The staff even located a small round table and extra chairs for my parents so we could play Mahjong in their room!
We found on excellent rate on Travel Zoo back in November or December which also included the resort fee, so our accomodations were very reasonably priced & the Mansion is quite magnficent - the artwork is mesmerizing! The bathrooms are sleek & modern looking with a glass door fronting the toilet area. Be careful opening & closing the door; on one dark, nighttime visit, I opened the door over my toe - ouch!
The room was luxurious with the most comfortable bed, complimentary bottled water, and lovely toiletries (Gilchrist & Soames). Some of the other guests were a bit noisy on Friday night (loud music & I think some people returning from a haunted pub tour!), but the next night was very quiet.
We were never able to use the spa (tried to make a reservation too late & they were booked) & we intended to use the fitness room, but we ran out of time (we walked a lot though). Casmir's Lounge was a nice place to have a quick bite when we checked in & for a before dinner drink; we intended to go back for the jazz on Friday/Saturday, but did something else came up. We never tried the restaurant, but saw people who had been there for dinner who'd enjoyed it.
We did have a lovely meal at Local 11 Ten which we walked to from the hotel (~5-8 minutes) and an incredible meal at Noble Fare (used the Town Car service provided by the hotel). We walked to the Firefly Cafe (charming) for breakfast one day and walked a couple of minutes to Sentinent Bean for breakfast the day we checked out (great coffee and baked goods). We did a tour with Explore Savannah (wonderful!) & walked all over Savannah - toured the Owens-Thomas house & the Telfair Academy & "forced ourselves" to have ice-cream at Leopold's! Great trip!
