Embrace the historic charm and Southern hospitality that radiates from the AAA four-diamond Hamilton-Turner Inn. Set amongst the beautiful magnolias and live oaks in Lafayette Square, our Savannah, Georgia bed and breakfast will sweep you off your feet with luxurious accommodations, gourmet treats and attentive service that is meant to pamper and spoil during your visit.
Built in 1873, the mansion housed many social events for the city's elite. It was also the first residence to have electricity in Savannah, and even survived the great fire in 1898. The mansion was almost destroyed in 1965 so it could be turned into a playground for a nearby school, but the Historic Savannah Foundation quickly jumped in to save the building.
Over the next 30 years, the Hamilton-Turner house had several owners until 1997 when Charlie and Sue Strickland converted the mansion into the Hamilton-Turner Inn luxury suites.
The Hamilton-Turner Inn staff is committed to providing every guest with sincere and detail oriented service. We pride ourselves in expert care and we promise to provide a top quality experience each and every time you stay at the Hamilton-Turner Inn.
During your visit, we encourage you to dive into all that Savannah has to offer, with the peace of mind in knowing that at days end, your indulgence continues when you come back to unwind with quality wine and hors d'oeuvres in the parlor at the Hamilton-Turner Inn.
You’ll quickly see that Savannah is filled with fashionable boutiques, entertainment, and trendy restaurants that are sure to satisfy any traveler. There are always events to attend, such as festivals like the Savannah Music Festival and Greek Festival, gallery openings at the Telfair Museum of Art and SCAD Museum of Art, sporting events provided by the minor league Sand Gnats baseball and roller derby team, and outdoor adventures at Tybee Beach and the scenic parks located throughout downtown Savannah.
The Lucas Theater is nearby and is sure to put on an exceptional performance and then, may we suggest, you enjoy a scoop of homemade ice cream from Leopold's located right around the corner?
The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is another site that’s wellworth attention. Its rich history dates back to the late 1700s, and even survived a catastrophic fire like the Hamilton-Turner Inn, confirming that this city is the epitome of resilience.
River Street offers a grand “all-in-one” cobblestone boardwalk where you can experience anything from formal fine-dining to local fried oysters, top shelf wine to a chilled beer, chic boutiques to tourist t-shirts. Be sure to take a picture with the Waving Girl and watch the ferry boats float across the Savannah River. If you’re lucky, you might even see a giant 500 ton cargo ship passing through.
If taking on Savannah by foot isn’t ideal, enjoy a cruise through town on a trolley! There are different types of trolley tours that focus on our city’s history, ghost tours, Girl Scout tours, and everything in between. You’ll learn so much during each of the tours that we won’t be surprised if you’re tempted to take two.
Another pleasurable way to enjoy Savannah with your feet kicked up is a horse and carriage tour. Like the trolley tours, they provide tours focusing on the history and ghosts in our city, but with the added flair of being pulled by a charming Savannah horse.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Hamilton-Turner Inn and hearing about all of your adventures during your stay in Savannah. We promise you will fall in love with this city and the accommodations we provide. Book a room, pack a bag, and prepare for a vacation you’ll never forget!
