    A Historical Account of Savannah's Oldest Hotel

    In 1851, businesswoman Mary Marshall, noting that Savannah was woefully in need of visitor accommodations, built the four-story Marshall House Hotel. It served as a hospital for soldiers during the Civil War. It was also home to Joel Chandler Harris, author of the famous Uncle Remus stories. By 1956, the hotel had closed and the first floor was used for businesses.  In 1999, $12 million was invested in its spectacular restoration. The award-winning results are stunning, combining elegance and historical authenticity with 21st century conveniences. There is truly no place in Savannah like it.

    A Name in the History Books

    The Marshall House was named as a National Historic Building on April 1, 2000 by The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. The Hotel has its original staircases (some of the spindles and gingerbread have been recreated), original wood floors, fireplaces, brick walls, and the doors to each guest room are original as well. The Atrium was the courtyard and has been encased with a glass ceiling to give the sensation of what once was. The artifacts displayed on floors two and three were found during the renovation.

    Who Was Mary Marshall?

    Mary Leaver Marshall, the original proprietor of The Marshall House, was the daughter of Gabriel Leaver, a French cabinetmaker with a shrewd vision for developing Savannah's land.

    He purchased a number of choice plots of land in the business section of the city, held onto them tenaciously, and left them to his daughter upon his death. An enterprising and energetic lady, she continued to buy land and prospered with the city, living to the age of 93.

    She passed away in 1877 and left the running of the hotel to a former New Englander, William Coolidge. A family legend confirmed by Georgia Historical Society records states that Mr. Coolidge hoisted the first flag declaring Georgia's secession from the Union.

    Mary Marshall was married to Colonel James Marshall—his portrait is over the fireplace in the Library—a Second Lieutenant in the Savannah Volunteer Guard (SVG), the city's volunteer military group of which Mary was an active supporter. She was recognized by the SVG on two separate occasions for battle flags she created for the troops with her own hands.

    A photograph of Mrs. Marshall's "town home" which was located on the corner of Oglethorpe Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. is available for viewing outside of The Mary Marshall Suite, Room 205.

  • Recent Comments from our Guests

    "This was by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in. My husband and I booked the superior king room and it was perfect! The room was quite large and well laid out. The decor was beautiful and the room was very clean and comfortable. The location of the hotel itself was perfect, we didn't need a car at all, it was nice to be so close to everything. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, tons of options and the best quiche! Now on to my favorite part, the staff. Every single person we encountered was beyond helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here on all of our visits to Savannah!" 06/16/12

    "Excellent location...just a few blocks from everything we wanted to see. Great ambiance...original floors and doors, great decor. Very clean! Really enjoyed meeting new people at the wine and cheese. They had lemonade for the kids. It rained during our stay but fortunately the front desk had large umbrellas we could borrow. Loved this hotel! Great value when you consider the wine and cheese and great breakfast are both included." 06/06/12

    "We spent three mid-week nights at The Marshall House in May. For a historic hotel we were pleased with the size of the room. Our deluxe king room was quite comfortable for the two of us. We appreciated the fact that there were two chairs and two suitcase racks. Breakfast was good, there was a protein selection (quiche) and the fruit was fresh and in season. The wine and cheese hour was a nice way to transition into evening while comparing our day's activities with other guests. Everything we wanted to see and do was within walking distance. The valet took our car upon check in and we had no need of it until check out. We slept too well to notice if there were any ghosts." 05/25/12

    "This was a perfect blend of historic atmosphere and gentility with modern conveniences. The venue is absolutely charming, the location perfect - we were able to park our car and walk everywhere we wanted to go - and yet the room size was nice, the bed amazingly comfortable, outside noise a minimum and the plumbing and electric/electronic features (which I always have low expectations for in such a historic building) were top notch. Would highly recommend!" 05/14/12

    "All the great reviews you read about The Marshall House are right on. Location is great and the hotel staff, rooms, ambiance etc. are top quality for a hotel of this size and age. Also had a fantastic dinner at the Bistro on the bottom floor." 05/01/12

    "This is the best of the best. The location is terrific. The staff is very friendly, and the decor is charming. They accommodated us with almond milk for breakfast. Brandt was extremely helpful with tours and restaurants." 04/27/12

    "Just got back from a girls' long weekend in Savannah and my friend and I could not be more pleased with our stay at the Marshall House. It was a perfect location, we valeted the car when we arrived and did not need to get in it again until we left. The House has so much historic charm while still having all the amenities you want, and the staff were all so friendly. The weekday wine and cheese reception is a nice touch and the daily breakfast is elevated beyond the usual "continental breakfast" fare with delicious quiches and southern biscuits in addition to what you would expect. The first night we stayed in a balcony room and that was a real treat, we only wish we had booked sooner so we could have had that room all three nights!" 04/22/12

    "This is an old and charming hotel with fantastic staff!. We were welcomed from the time we pulled up in front of the hotel until we left. Each time we left the hotel and returned, someone was usually available to open the door for us and say "welcome back". Our room was comfortable with an old fashioned claw foot tub with shower, a couple of wing back chairs and a king size bed and a flat screen tv. The breakfast was served in a lovely atrium room with beautiful potted palms. Each evening wine and cheese were served in the library. This was a lovely way to wind down your day and meet your fellow travellers. Based on what I considered was a very reasonable rate for this hotel, the service was what you would expect from a much more expensive property. The location was great - only a couple of blocks from river street and within walking distance to the city market, Forsyth park and all the lovely squares and beautiful old homes." 04/19/12

    "My husband and I stayed here for several day in early April. We could not have bee happier with the hotel. The staff were great (Holly, Carlton, Charles and Heather to name a few) and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The location of the hotel was perfect, central to everything, with a Starbucks right down the block. We stayed in a Broughton Balcony room and it was wonderful. We really enjoyed sitting on the balcony in rocking chairs watching the numerous ghost tours stop in front of the hotel. Some reviewers have mentioned that these rooms are noisy, we did not find that to be a problem at all, in fact we were actually surprised that it was not noisier. If we ever get the change to visit Savannah again, we will be staying at the Marshal House. If you are planning a trip to Savannah this is the PLACE TO STAY." 04/14/12

    "Our stay at the Marshall House was nothing short of incredible from the moment we drove up to the moment we drove off. The hotel is an older building that has been nicely restored but not to the point where the charm was eliminated. The staff was very friendly and professional - Carlton, who took care of our car and luggage, was particularly helpful and most pleasant. Breakfast was very good and included just about anything you would want. While we were on a quick trip, two of the couples we stayed there with came back for two more nights later that week. I can't think of a reason to stay anywhere else in Savannah." 04/01/12
