Savannah’s Enchanting Hamilton-Turner Inn

Hamilton-Turner Inn parlor with blue velvet sofa and a gilded mirrorThe four-level boutique hotel with its distinctive mansard roof, iron balconies, and stucco exterior keeps company on the Historic District plaza with such storied sites as the massive Cathedral of St. John the Baptist; the Andrew Low House Museum where Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts of America; and renowned author Flannery O’Connor’s birthplace and childhood abode.

Complimentary breakfast is served in the sunny blue-and-white dining room. In the evening, visitors mingle while enjoying wine, hors d’oeuvres, and fresh-baked cookies in the parlor, which features a hand-painted wall mural, original heart pine flooring, and a marble mantel believed to have been an antique when selected by Samuel during construction.
