Hamilton-Turner Inn
by Roberta B. Turner

Guests of Hamilton-Turner Inn will encounter warm Southern hospitality no matter what they do in and around the Savannah Historic District. This Savannah, GA bed and breakfast sits on beautiful Lafayette Square. Hamilton-Turner House was built as a mansion for the home of successful businessman Samuel Pugh Hamilton in the square in 1883.

It then became the romantic and highly regarded inn. Also on the square, the Andrew Low House was built for Englishman Andrew Low in 1849. Andrew’s son, William, married Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the girl scouts. The National Society of Colonial Dames now owns the house, and it is open to the public as a museum.

The inn has 17 rooms that are individually designed, with touches that vary from 11-foot windows and antique four-poster beds to walk-in showers or slipper tubs. Every stay will be different, as no two rooms are the same. The inn also has a separate carriage house with three bedrooms and three baths.

The inn is known for its Southern hospitality with around-the-clock, personalized service that has been recognized by distinguished media outlets including Travel + Leisure, Trip Advisor, Fodor’s Travel, and Forbes Travel Guide.

Hamilton-Turner Inn serves a full breakfast, afternoon snacks and evening wine and hors d’oeuvres.
