Old World Charm
NAVIGATOR

V

isiting Savannah is like going back in time to the late 1800s. Cobblestone streets, intricate Victorian architecture and filled with a sense of old world charm. Different from most US cities, time seems to slow down in Savannah.

 

A place where people stroll through parks, catch up with neighbors on their front porches and sit to enjoy a cup of tea at a street café.

 

The Victorian Romanesque architecture of the mansion mirrors the surrounding homes in Savannah’s historic district, including the 19th-century mansion next door which houses the hotel’s restaurant, 700 Drayton. The restaurant serves up exceptional Southern dishes with a modern twist, where I enjoyed one of the most delicious breakfasts of my stay – Shrimp and Grits. A true Southern dish that was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The restaurant also offers an interactive culinary experience where you can learn cooking tips from James Beard featured Chef Peter Russo in their cooking school.
