Congratulations are in order for one of Savannah's most cherished gems! The Hamilton-Turner Inn was recently named the best romantic hotel in the United States by USA Todaya well-deserved accolade indeed.

Situated on a charming, tree-lined street just steps away from Lafayette Square, the former private home's French Empire-style architecture is bound to catch your eye, even in a city full of beautiful buildings. Once inside, it's immediately clear that Hamilton-Turner Inn isn't your ordinary bed and breakfast. The opulent mansion has been transformed into an idyllic retreat that hasn't forgotten its historic roots. Fireplaces, brocade wallpaper, and crystal chandeliers combine to create a truly enchanting space.

Many of the hotel's 17 individually designed guestrooms contain 11-foot windows, antique four-poster beds, claw-foot tubs, and private entrances. If all that weren't enough to get your heart thumping, they also offer daily breakfast, complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres in the evening, and a cozy fireplace poised for a romantic nightcap.
