The great irony is that I’ve not yet been to Savannah, but dream of it often, and I’ve never stayed in a B&B or Inn here in the U.S.. While our European friends have done Inns & B&B’s so well for so long, here in the U.S., B&B’s and Inns have been a sort of up & down proposition.
They go through their periods of “everyone has to try them” and “I’d rather have something I know,” yet B&B’s and Inns remain a strong and trustworthy presence on the travel and hospitality scene.
I’d first seen an Inn as a child sitting besides dad watching Holiday Inn and White Christmas. Falling in love with the quaint, hominess and warm hospitality drew me in. I dreamt of the day I’d not only visit such a place, but perhaps even own one.
Our visits to Europe as I was growing up mostly found us staying in Inns and smaller, private hotels, so that passion was only intensified. Yet I’ve yet to partake here at home in the states. Perhaps this Inn will be among my first.
I’m frequently online doing research and on one such world-wide-web journey through Savannah, came across the Presidents Quarters Inn. I spent enough time on the site to know I’d have to one try the Richard M Nixon room (how’s that for irony) and came away wanting to know more.
Reaching out, I exchanged a few emails with a terrific lady named Sandy, and began to discover another level of this rich, beautiful, romantic, and warm Inn.
From their getaway packages to special celebrations such as weddings and anniversaries, the Presidents Quarters Inn appears to be so perfectly matched to what’s on tap in Savannah, you’re likely to find exactly what you’re looking for.
Let us step into one of the rooms; the Richard M. Nixon of course. Close your eyes and picture a room so perfectly designed you feel as though you’d stepped into another time, perhaps that movie-musical of your childhood memories. Romantic and warm, welcoming and relaxing you’re in a room out of a Presidential portrait. A yellow accent wall plays in modern warm contrast to the old brick fireplace; a breathing moment of “I feel like I’ve been here before” crosses your mind.
Read the morning paper over coffee or catch up on email in the wing-backed chair at the writing table and feel cozy and at home in this wonderful blend of historic yesterdays and modern today.
This first-level room offers its beautiful courtyard as a nearby friend, as well as charming you with its homy feel. A queen bed means a comfortable and spacious night’s sleep, while the modern bathroom means hitting Savannah quickly and easily, refreshed and ready to discover her every detail.
Other historic presidential settings include the similar Lyndon B. Johnson room, classic Abraham Lincoln room, stately Ronald Reagan room or regal Teddy Roosevelt room.
The Presidents Quarters Inn has an excellent website to help you plan your stay, as well as develop your itinerary to enjoy all of Savannah’s best. Stop by the site and get lost in its many pages of information and photos.
