Sleeping with Presidents

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 29, 2007

The Presidents’ Quarters Inn’s 16 rooms are named, not for the presidents who slept in them, but rather for those presidents who visited Savannah while in office.

We stayed in the Franklin D. Roosevelt Suite. (Roosevelt visited for the City of Savannah’s Bicentennial in 1933) Its balcony overlooks the charming courtyard and garden; it has a huge, four-poster, king-sized bed and a dressing area. The plush, terrycloth bathrobes were ideal for lounging about the room, which is well air-conditioned. Its 13-foot high ceilings help to make a large room seem even bigger. It was the most spacious hotel room we have ever stayed in. It was very comfortable. The room can seem dark because of its deep colored walls; raise the shades to lighten up the place.

Breakfast, or ‘morning repast’ as the Inn’s menu card refers to it, can be enjoyed in the delightful outdoor courtyard, in your room, or in several small sitting areas scattered throughout the Inn.

In 1855 the estate of William Washington Gordon, whose monument is in Savannah’s Wright Square, and George W. Anderson bought a double trust lot on Oglethorpe Square for $1,900; on that land twin townhouses were built for $7,600! In 1870 General Andrew Lawton, who was charge d’affaires to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, received General Robert E. Lee in this double-sized mansion.

The President’s Quarters Inn was created in 1987 from these Federal-style townhouses following a complete restoration. The Inn is located across the street from the Owens-Thomas House, a beautiful house-museum, on peaceful Oglethorpe Square. This Inn offers guests a comfortable stay, and a central location for visiting the city’s sights.
