The Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront, Autograph Collection
102 W. Bay St.
Built in 2009, the Bohemian occupies a new building, but one that fits well within its historical riverfront surroundings. Your room view could be of the river or historic district, or if you have a corner unit, both! The 18th-century maritime era has influenced design elements throughout the multistory brick property, but there has been no skimping on modern luxuries. One of its main draws is Rocks on the Roof, a rooftop lounge offering drinks, tapas, live music and a fire pit along with amazing views of Savannah.Book Now

The Gastonian bed-and-breakfast, just two blocks from Forsyth Park, is unique in that it encompasses two adjacent 1868 Regency Italianate mansions. The houses are connected via a walkway, and the lovely courtyard in the middle presents a perfect photo backdrop for capturing your stay. Inside you’ll encounter a subtle elegance created with English antiques and fireplaces in the common areas and the 17 distinctively decorated rooms. You’re invited to have daily drinks and light eats in the parlor.Book Now

330 Abercorn St.This Second Empire mansion, now a bed-and-breakfast, was built for businessman Samuel Pugh Hamilton in 1873; 10 years later it became the city’s first residence to have electricity. Each of the 17 rooms in this elegant AAA Inspector Pick dons a name representative of local history. The inn’s location on Lafayette Square, also home to the Andrew Low House, Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home and Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, is part of its appeal—as is mingling in the parlor when afternoon and evening refreshments are served.Book Now

123 Habersham St.Kehoe House has been a bed-and-breakfast since the early 1990s. Built in 1892, this gorgeous four-story Renaissance Revival mansion was home to William Kehoe—an Irish immigrant who made his fortune in the iron industry—and his wife and 10 children. Today’s occupants get to choose from 13 guest rooms and enjoy nightly hors d’oeuvres, desserts, coffee and wine. The property faces Columbia Square and sits kitty-corner to the 1820 Federal-style Davenport House, well worth a guided tour.Book Now
