The Marshall House
Ranked #5 of 115 Hotels in Savannah
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 December 2013

My husand and I spent one night at the Marshall House in November. From the time that we checked in until the valet returned our car, we were welcomed with friendly respect. Neil at the desk was warm and efficient, and that extended to all the staff that we encountered. The hotel is charming and "antique-y". Our room, a superior king, was lovely in its decor and comfortable in its amenities. The hotel had a fun wine and cheese party where guests had a chance to mingle. The location of the hotel is excellent. We walked to Lady and Sons for dinner, and the next day we further explored the historic district of Savannah on foot. Breakfast, served in a former courtyard (now roofed over), was plentiful and, if not delicious, certainly adequate.

My husband and I came to Savannah for our honeymoon and stayed at The Marshall House for 4 nights. Bridget, Amelia and Neil at the front desk were so helpful! They helped us get around the city and book our tours. John is a great valet. We stayed in The Mary Marshall Suite so we didn't have any ghost appearances. (Whew!) We would recommend to others to stay.

We were fortunate enough to spend a lovely night at the Marshall House and wish it had been longer. After staying in hotels around the world we consider this to be among our top 5 favorites! Location is wonderful, the staff was genuinely friendly and helpful, and the hotel retains original charm. We booked a queen room and it was nice for the two of us for a one night stay although I would recommend booking a larger room for longer stays. The included continental breakfast was served in the lovely courtyard and was very nice. It included several juices, cereals, danish, fruit, and muffins.

Room Tip: If you are staying more than a night or two, book one of the larger rooms.

My husband and I stay in feb. 2013. We loved it. Loved the old feel of the hotel. We fully enjoyed the wine and cheese during the afternoon. The bar was very handy and the breakfast was warm and very plenty. Hear the running children in the earlier morning hours.

Had a great stay at this centrally located hotel. This is a great historic spot to rest your head at night. Great room with a comfortable bed and nice TV and cute bathroom. Shower was a little on the small side and there wasn't a tub, but we enjoyed the style of the bathroom. The breakfast was ok, your standard continental breakfast with an assortment of breads, bagels and pastries. The "hot" section included eggs or quiche on our mornings there. I truly enjoyed its central location to everything downtown Savannah had to offer. I would highly recommend this place.

If you are a fan of Civil War era architecture, this is the stay for you! It was like sleeping overnight in a working museum. We had the Joel Chandler Harris room (queen). My first thought on entering the room was that I could live right there in that one room for many a year and guess what--it turns out that Harris did just that from 1870 - 1876. He was the associate editor of The Savannah Morning News during that time, but later went on to originate the Uncle Remus stories and the Brer Rabbit characters, depicted in the room decor. The room had lovely 10 inch baseboard, antiques, and a large armoire with bath robes and a room safe inside for valuables. An opening not much bigger than a pet door apparently had been a functional fireplace at one time. The heart pine floor had a slant of about 20 degrees and the boards did squeak and pop as you walked over them. The shower-only bath had a tile-and-grout floor in the shower. It was spotless, but if we had known, we would have brought shower shoes. Overall, maybe not the place for Techies and folks who admire 21st Century architecture (what there is of it), but we were absolutely enchanted. We missed the wine and cheese in the evening, so I can't comment on that, but the complimentary breakfast was an elegant affair. Photos of the breakfast room do not do it justice--it is not an outside space, just designed to have the appearance of one. Juices, fresh fruits, a large assortment of rolls, muffins and fresh-cooked scrambled eggs were among the offerings, but there were no breakfast meats. There is reserved parking right out front for check in and valet. The valet parking was $15 per night, the same as the public garages. Every member of the staff was enthusiastic and gracious. All this at one of the lowest rates for a downtown location! Now that we've experienced it, we would not ever stay any place else in Savannah.

Room Tip: Queen bed rooms come in 2 sizes. We had the larger, but a "petite queen" is probably all...

Enjoyed the short stay here. The hotel is old (in a good way!) but still nice. Nice tv, comfy bed, super friendly staff (minus one valet guy but it was 10pm when we rolled up and he wasn't rude, just not very friendly). Location is super too, right on Broughton and a quick walk to everything. We'll def add Marshall House to our list of places we like to stay in Savannah.
