Hey lovers! Let’s see what charming hotels, inns, and apartments the Hostess City of the South is serving.
This guide to romantic getaways in Savannah features honeymoon suites, rooftop bars, pools and spas, apartments for privacy, and local attractions for couples.
Most Romantic Places to Stay in Savannah
Lovely Hotels in Savannah
Let’s kick off our search with the most romantic hotels in Savannah, starting at the bustling Plant Riverside District with the swanky JW Marriott (400 West River St).
If your idea of a perfect trip is rooftop bars, open container walks, and a ride on the Georgia Queen, then this location could be it.
Would you prefer fewer crowds? Consider one of the other hotels on our list.
Rooms start at 325 sq ft and are very modern with flat-screen TVs, air conditioning, and Wi-Fi; some rooms have river views.
The hotel, which is located in a 1912 plant building, is renowned for its lobby, where you’ll find artifacts such as a dinosaur.
There are also 12 restaurants and a spa, so you really don’t need to leave during your stay.
However, you will want to see the infamous River Street with its bars, restaurants, and market just on the hotel’s doorstep.
A quick note from me: my husband and I really enjoyed seeing the skyline at sunset from the Georgia Queen. We opted for the dinner package, but it isn’t essential.
There is a bar on the top floor which has the best views.
The Drayton Hotel Savannah, Curio Collection by Hilton
Located in the heart of the Historic District, The Drayton Hotel is a mix of old (19th-century building) and new with its digital key access and TV streaming.
Very stylish rooms feature Wi-Fi, smart TVs, and Bluetooth speakers, and the hotel itself has a seafood restaurant and a rooftop bar that has tables indoors and out, although the skyline view is restricted.
The Drayton is pet-friendly, so if you can’t leave your fur baby for one night, pack the pooch’s bags and pay the surcharge.
River Street is a quick five-minute walk over East Bay Street and down the notoriously steep steps or cobbled hill.
Here, you can hop aboard bus trolleys, go on boat tours, or dive into bars such as Myrtle & Rose for views or River House to try the Chatham Artillery Punch.
The latter is potent, but I genuinely like it!
Check availability at The Drayton Expedia.
Perry Lane Hotel
Ahhh, Perry Lane (256 E Perry St) is a dreamy hotel near East Jones Street, one of the most photographed mansions in Savannah, and where you can gorge on Southern food at Mrs. Wilkes’s Dining Room.
This luxury Downtown hotel is elegant.
Rooms are unique and have individual touches, but as standard, they come with air conditioning, Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and start at 440 sq ft.
Drink a tad too much at the rooftop bar while soaking up those views?
Take advantage of room service while you cuddle up in comfort!
Don’t spend too much in bed, though.
Perry Lane has a discreet rooftop pool, and it is within walking distance of The Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist, Telfair Museums, and many of Savannah’s pretty squares.
Up for brunch? We love the omelet and biscuits at Clary’s Cafe, skillets at J. Christopher’s, and the french toast at Collins Quarter in Forsyth Park.
Perry Lane is also a pet-friendly hotel.
For an award-winning romantic stay, book a suite at the Hamilton-Turner Inn (330 Abercorn St).
The building was constructed in 1873 for the businessman Samuel Pugh Hamilton, who was also known as the Lord of Lafayette Square, and it is featured in the book and movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah Story by John Berendt.
Couples can choose from 17 uniquely decorated rooms that start at 290 sq ft in the main house, with some offering 11-foot windows, four-poster beds, working fireplaces, and rain showers for afternoon wake-up calls.
There is also an in-house spa offer for couples massages and beauty procedures.
Guests love the daily wine and hors d’oeuvres in the hotel parlor.
Romantic Inns of Savannah
Olde Harbour Inn
Couples who adore wine and cheese should consider the Olde Harbour Inn (508 Factors Walk), as this historic inn puts on a free tasting session for all customers.
Guests love the modern rooms starting at 450 sq ft and say they are akin to a small apartment with living space, a bedroom, a microwave, and a small fridge.
The decor is upscale while retaining a vintage feel.
The only downside is that the 1812-era home may not be suitable for those with mobility issues.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome.
Olde Harbour Inn is steps away from River Street attractions, City Hall, and the start of Savannah’s squares.
The Marshall House
The Marshall House (123 E Broughton St) is situated in a superb location.
Broughton Street is surrounded by stores for shopping, is close to City Market for Vinnie Van GoGo’s Pizza and The Georgia Tasting Room wine slushies, and is just down the road from the decade-old Leopold’s Ice Cream for a late-night sweet treat.
This historic inn was built in 1851, is classified as a boutique hotel, and is part of the Historic Inns of Savannah group.
Rooms feature a flat-screen cable TV, a small refrigerator, and Wi-Fi, with the addition of a decorative fireplace and a private bath, including a pedestal sink.
If you’re looking for a reason to cozy up to your partner – The Marshall House is said to be haunted, so there may be some paranormal activity during your stay!
Bookings include a hot breakfast, which guests rate.
The Marshall House is one of the best Christmas hotels in Savannah, as it puts its own spin on the Christmas tree, the Christmas pineapple tree!
Editor tip: if you like spooky stories, check out one of Savannah’s tours. They have every kind, from trolleys to walking, and even a tour in a hearse. I personally recommend this trolley tour as it includes visits from actors!
Kehoe House Inn
Let Kehoe House Inn (123 Habersham St) provide an award-winning experience during your stay.
Situated on Columbia Square, which is close to Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters (which we highly recommend) and Broughton Street for shopping and treats like candy at River Street Sweets.
Once home to Mr. and Mrs. Kehoe and their ten children, it is suggested that Mrs Kehoe, aka the Lady in White, still roams the rooms of this listed National Register of Historic Places hotel.
The 13 rooms start at 300 sq ft and present a ye olde feel with four poster beds, vintage wardrobes, and luggage racks.
Complimentary breakfast and free parking are also added bonuses.
Tip for couples: this is an adult-only accommodation, perfect for a romantic weekend in Savannah! It can also be rented as a wedding venue, housing up to 26 guests overnight.
Love free attractions? Here’s our budget guide.
If you’re reading this guide in search of the dreamiest of honeymoon suites in Savannah, take a look at The Gastonian Honeymoon Suite (220 E Gaston St).
The Caracalla Suite offers 850 sq ft of pure luxury with a king-size bed and oversized whirlpool tub with drapes.
Just imagine sipping some champagne under the chandelier while soaking in bubbles. Bliss!
The Gastion is just blocks away from the city’s most popular green space, Forsyth Park.
The Gastonian also appears in our boutique hotels guide.
Young-at-heart couples may like the fun Thunderbird Inn (611 W Oglethorpe Ave) as the accommodation of choice for their romantic getaway!
Originally a 1964 Savannah roadside motel, this retro, budget-friendly inn extends a warm welcome to guests through Southern favorite MoonPies, hot popcorn, and cool lemonade on arrival.
Rooms have air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and a refrigerator fired up by eco-friendly solar panels.
Pets are welcome, and parking is charged at a daily rate.
There is also an on-site bakery to grab food to go as you head out to River Street, which is less than a 15-minute walk away.
Don’t bypass Poe’s Tavern – a refurbished fire station with decor devoted to author Edgar Allan Poe.
Shhh! Secret Savannah tip: pop your head around the corner of Thunderbird Inn to see the colorful Welcome to Savannah mural.
