No visit to Savannah would be complete without a stay at Foley House. This special inn is a classic Italianate gem, overlooking Spanish moss-draped Chippewa Square, made famous as the place Forrrest Gump waited for the bus with that box of chocolates. It's nestled beneath the church spire around which that feather floated on its way to film history. Foley House has many hidden charms behind that solid oak door. For one, it's actually two dwellings, side by side melded into one exquisite lodging place. A favorite view is from the base of the two sets of stairs separated only by a thin wall. Standing at the cusp provides a virtual stereoscopic look up the dual staircases and the ornate woodwork. Each room is appointed with the most opulent British Colonial furnishings from the turn of the 20th century. One example is the Empire Room, the grand suite replete with an ebony baby grand player piano, gaslight fireplace, spa and luxurious linens covering canopied beds. The parlors, hallways and breakfast rooms are homey and comfortable with much to explore and gaze upon. A cherished element is an ornate lamp gracing the base of the grand staircase. It's an heirloom prop from the film "Gone With The Wind" and is prominently seen as Rhett utters the "don't give a ---" line before disappearing out the door. The outdoor terraced lounging area, statuary, land- and container-scaping and babbling water fountains make this a truly enchanting place just inside the walls from the vibrant Savannah streets. As for service, Foley House treats each guest like royalty. We urge discerning travelers to experience Foley House as their home away from home...in Savannah. To stay there is an unforgettable experience. Gail Lowe and Calvin Anderson, Travel Writers from Massachusetts
