Marshall House

Our home in Savannah was the Marshall House.

Marshall House is conveniently located on Broughton Street in the historic area.  If you have a car, parking is $25/night. You get a $5 discount if you book your room directly on their website:

Marshall House was built in 1851 and served as a private home, a hospital during the Civil War and 2 Yellow Fever outbreaks and then converted to a hotel. In 1999, the hotel was extensively renovated but it still retains the charm of an old hotel.

Reception area.

The hotel is said to be haunted. One story is that there is a little boy that bites guests in a room on the 4th floor. Another is that children run down the long halls late at night.

Artifacts from the past.

We had a Classic King room. There is free WiFi and 2 robes for use during your stay.

Our room had a fireplace but I'm not sure it was functioning. Complimentary water was delivered daily. There is a coffee maker and a mini fridge in each room.

Updated bathrooms.

Complimentary wine & cheese reception Sunday-Thursday evenings. On Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, a historian gives a lecture on the history of Savannah.

Breakfast atrium.

Hot & cold entrees.

Biscuits were served daily--they were so light and fluffy. Breakfast was included in our room rate--$9.95 if it's not included.
