Ghost Hunting in Savannah?

The Marshall House's history as hospital during the Civil War and through two yellow fever epidemics makes it very conducive to haunted tales. Take any of the local ghost tours, and you'll hear plenty of stories!  Rumors and reports include guests seeing ghosts in the hallways and foyers, hearing children running down the long, narrow halls late at night, faucets turning on by themselves, and much more.  

The Marshall House has been featured several times on the Travel Channel's haunted hotel programs and specials.  At The Marshall House, we love the City's haunted reputation and enjoy the spirited good fun it brings.  If you're a ghost hunter, book a stay at The Marshall House and come explore!

"We Stayed on the Wonderfully Haunted 4th Floor!

This hotel will not disappoint! From its charm, sophistication, excellent staff, old Savannah feel and style…to its delightful haunts. Will return!! Loved everything about it and the 4th floor is the place to be if you want to take a chance of having some odd things happening."

Comments About Our Haunted Reputation

"Cool Historic Place

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My daughter and I had a blast staying at The Marshall House. We stayed in room 414 which is reported to be haunted. We had no experiences the first night. The second night Noelle heard footsteps around the room at night and saw and heard the bathroom door close in the middle of the night by itself. She had assumed it was me going to the bathroom but I never did. I woke up hearing footsteps in the room and thought it was Noelle moving around until I saw she was in bed sleeping. It was such a cool historic place. We will be back!"

We stayed there last November, I think the entire 4th floor is haunted. I heard strange noises every night. We enjoyed our adventure so much. The hospitality and service was wonderful."

"Beautiful Hotel

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

The hotel was beautiful and historic. I chose this hotel due to the reputation of it being haunted. Though I did not experience any paranormal activity it was still an amazing experience. The staff was nice and the rooms were beautiful. It was also conveniently located and walking distance from so many things."

"One of the Most Haunted Hotels in Savannah"

Absolutely love the Marshall House! Everything you could ever want is within walking distance! In the evening, they have a variety of presentations, whether it Is a musician or a speaker presenting the history of the hotel and the area! The breakfast that they had was phenomenal! This hotel is purportedly one of the most haunted in Savannah. While I'm somewhat of a believer in the paranormal, the stuff my mom and I encountered were definitely weird! Would visit again! 10/10"
