Savannah, Georgia is a city known for its Southern hospitality, historic beauty, magnificent food, and delectable cocktails. Its rich history has turned it into a city devoted to the arts and dedicated to preserving its spectacular period architecture.

Dating back to the 1700s, its centuries of history and numerous associations with ghost stories have given the city a reputation of being haunted — you’ll certainly feel that when you see the sleepy Spanish moss tangled in the city’s stately (and ancient) oak trees.

This is a Southern city that’s not to be missed. If Savannah’s on your travel bucket list, consider one of the following boutique hotels to make as your home base for exploring this unique American locale.
