Description

Circa 1873. Poised on Lafayette Square Park, this circa 1873 Mid Victorian and Second Empire mansion is a place where dramatic history blends with southern hospitality and world-famous architecture. Since its highly publicized construction by businessman Samuel P. Hamilton, this 12,000 square foot inn has attracted the original Savannah 400 social elite as well as writers, photographers, discerning guests and families. Marble fireplaces and 11-foot arched doors accent Eastlake, Empire and Renaissance Revival antiques. The formal parlor features select furnishings from the Johnny Mercer estate, an original chandelier and burled walnut mantel and mirror. The mansion offers guest bedrooms and suites with sitting rooms. Bathrooms boast clawfoot tubs or Jacuzzi whirlpools. Carriage house accommodations include a casual parlor. Enjoy "dessert begins with breakfast," evening hors d'oeuvres and wine.

Don't miss this place!

Peaceful and elegant are the best words to describe the Inn. Gracious living in a gorgeous setting! The accommodations are lovely and the food divine, but what puts this place over the top are the owners and staff who know how to take "care" of people! Don't miss this place - it's the heart and soul of Savannah!

Family weekend

We loved the Inn for our Grandmother/Mother/Daughter weekend. The staff helped make it so special with all the wonderful amenities - loved the courtyard flowers and organic herbs.

Trip highlight

This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Charleston and Savannah. Staying here was a unique experience - so homey - everyone was so cheerful and couldn't do enough for the guests!! If any of my firends or relatives are traveling here, I would definitely tell them not to miss staying here!!

Wonderful hospitality

We work, eat and play in "the Southern part of Heaven," but after this weekend, thanks to the wonderful hospitality of the Hamilton-Turner Inn staff, Savannah has really given Chapel Hill some competition! Thanks for making our 5 year anniversary so memorable!!

A bit old and crowded in common are

For this cost, I would reccomend the Gastonian instead. My main complaint is the common area is crowded and not impressive and so the communal effect was off and not maximized. I found the guest services folks to be just okay, but really they can make or break your stay. I expect more and so should you for the high high cost. Great location, but beware that the rooms with two queens will feel crowded as well.

Beautiful and Romantic

The Hamilton-Turner Inn is perfectly nestled at Lafayette Square. The room was cozy with a soft lavander color wall right when you walk in, awesome brick worked walls and to top it all off a huge claw foot tub for two. Nightly turn down service with some form of a sweet left for you on the bed. We LOVED our stay. The staff was OUTSTANDING. Everyone went well above and beyond to ensure the best possible stay, while we were there. There was wine in the parlor from 5:30 p.m. till around 6:30 or 7:00 p.m. A port for your pleasure after that until 10:00 p.m. The breakfast each morning was great. A lot of restaurants and historical sites with in walking distance. HIGHLY RECCOMEND visiting and staying a few nights at the Hamilton-Turner Inn. Will definately return. Oh yeah they have 4 or 5 rooms that are pet friendly.
