Experience Historic Savannah from The Marshall House

Savannah Vacation Guide

The Marshall House, located in the center of the Historic District on Broughton Street, offers guests an opportunity to stay right in the heart of one of America's most beautiful cities. With 24 historic squares featuring quaint shops, delectable dining options, and vibrant cultural attractions, Savannah remains a top worldwide travel destination.  Savannah is the place where old-world charm and modern-day living enchant millions of visitors every year.

If you've never visited Savannah before, we highly recommend a trolley tour.  These tours are designed to give you a comprehensive view of the entire historic district. Some of the tour companies offer an "On/Off" experience, allowing each guest to return to specific places of interest at their leisure. Be sure to bring a pen to mark your interests along the way.

Contact our concierge for information about our award winning restaurants located throughout the Historic District.  We do recommend advanced reservations during the months of March-June & October-November.
