    Originally constructed in 1855, these twin, Federal-style mansions were extensively renovated in 2007. This elegant, historic inn now features 16 overly spacious, richly appointed suites with fireplaces and private balconies.

    Private bath amenities include luxurious waffle bathrobes and exclusive bath toiletries. Executive suite balconies overlook the charming outdoor courtyard and Oglethorpe Square. Cozy sitting areas, perfect for reading or enjoying breakfast, can be found near the elevator on each landing.

    A signature Chef’s choice gourmet breakfast is prepared to order each morning, best enjoyed in the historic inn’s front parlor or in the courtyard gazebo. Afternoon hors d’oeuvres and wine, evening cordials and nightly turndown service are only a few of the exceptional characteristics that make The Presidents’ Quarters Inn an exclusive lodging experience worthy of Savannah’s discriminating guests.

    Whether your visit to Savannah is for business travel, a relaxing vacation or a romantic getaway, our attentive and knowledgeable Guest Services staff is on hand to custom-design exclusive packages that will make your stay unique and memorable. Romantic dinners, spa services, cooking classes, architectural tours - whatever your interests - may all be arranged at our front desk.

    Four consecutive years, Savannah magazine readers voted The Presidents’ Quarters Inn for BEST SAVANNAH INN / B&B (2009 - 2011), plus Savannah’s Best Romantic Inn (2008). Indeed, the romantic courtyard gazebo is ideal for an intimate wedding or reception.
