Six ladies stayed for the Savannah Tour of Homes in March. We were very happy with the accommodations and the layout of the unit. Centrally located and close to all the great restaurants and shops on River Street and City Market.
Perfect location - fronted on bay street. We stayed on the 1st floor w/ (2) bedrooms. The decor is very classy & the place itself was very clean. Bedrooms were fairly large and had plenty of closet space. Everything you need is there. Small courtyard right outside our apartment was perfect. The best part was the parking spot in the back - off the street.
Apartment is located within walking distance of many restaurants and bars. It is one street up from River street. However - right next door, literally steps away, was an outdoor bar area if you wanted a cocktail or food. (Treylor Park) When we first arrived we were nervous about the bar ..thinking it would be noisy at night. We heard nothing !!
Some recommendations : About a block over and up - was a small restaurant called Henry's that we went to for a quick, great breakfast. Decor is not the best but the service and food were good and pretty reasonable. We walked a few blocks over on bay street to B. Matthews for dinner. Very eclectic food and had small plates so that you can order and share. Definitely do the "tourist thing" and get ice cream at Leopold's. Worth the 1/2 hour wait online.
City Market is also a must to stop at - lots of stores and restaurants. Don't forget to visit Savannah Bee (sample honeys).
Tours - Wasn't too thrilled with our choice of haunted tour - we did the hearse haunted tour and our vehicle kept stalling. The whole tour was kind of "touristy and cheesy". We did, however, like the Oglethorpe City Trolley tour. Great way to see the historic downtown in 90 minutes.
All in all - we would highly recommend the Oglethorpe Lodge. Cannot beat the location or the accommodations. Great communication from the rental office. We will definitely book here again and will tell everyone.
Thank you !
