The Amazing Story of The Marshall House Savannah

The Hostess City of the South is home to many historic inns and hotels, but few can compare to the elegance and charm of The Marshall House, one of Savannah's oldest hotels. The Marshall House has been named one of the "Best of Savannah" hotels several times, and is consistently among the top ranked hotels on TripAdvisor. Step into the past with original features including authentic nineteenth-century doors, windows, railings, moldings, and high ceilings.

How It All Began

In 1851, Gabriel Leaver, a French cabinetmaker and father of businesswoman Mary Marshall, built the four-story Marshall House in Savannah. It served as a hospital for soldiers toward the end of the Civil War, and during two yellow fever epidemics. The Marshall House in Savannah was also home to Joel Chandler Harris, author of the Uncle Remus stories.

The hotel was closed from 1895-1899. It then operated on and off as a hotel until 1957, when it closed its doors.

Revitalizing the Treasure of Historic Savannah

In 1999, the property was fully restored and reopened with original features, including authentic 19th century doors, windows, railings, moldings, and tall ceilings. Some rooms have antique claw-foot tubs and Broughton Balcony King Rooms offer access to a wrought-iron balcony, which was reconstructed to replicate the building's original veranda of the early 1900s, through floor-to-ceiling windows.
