A lazy, delightful bed and breakfast inn in historic Savannah, Georgia, The Green Palm Inn is a member of The Romantic Inns of Savannah.
"We have a big southern welcome waiting at 'little' Green Palm Inn," says Innkeeper Diane McCray in a 3-minute video introducing Savannah and the little pleasures that await at the former seamen’s cottages (circa 1897). Today, the modest gingerbread Victorian is one of Savannah’s top-rated B&Bs.
Modest rates, a cozy, "Softer Side of Savannah" , and the well-traveled innkeeper charm guests. Within the Savannah Historic District, guests take in the village vibe with guest accommodations in one of only four private guest rooms. Each guest room features a modernized private bath, some with a cozy period fireplace in the bath.
The Inn’s tradition is to introduce guests to Savannah’s little hideaways and niches that include the character-rich places, the local lore, the new as well as tried-and-tested hometown restaurants, the most desirable events and attractions, and Savannah’s delightfully charming people.
Praised as "swoon-worthy," Fodor's Travel Guide calls Green Palm Inn a "pleasing little discovery" and "a little gem of an inn." Recommended in 2010 by Washingtonian, and featured in American Way and Destination magazines, the popular B&B exudes a calm, homey yet smart-travel ambiance near serene Greene Square - one of Savannah’s infamous 21 garden parks that beautify and soften the downtown landscape.
The top-rated inn is a short walk to nearby Trustees’ Gardens entertainment, the legendary Cotton Exchange on Factors Walk (nearly opened for tours), and ever-popular nightspots housed in repurposed Savannah River warehouses. In one of America's best walking cities, our breakfast-inn guests are encouraged to stroll leisurely or to try a pedicab (a rickshaw-type bike transport) to nearby artisan restaurants, boutique shopping, or nightspots in City Market or the Design District. Historical and cultural sightseeing includes art museums and galleries, mansion museums, Rousakis Plaza along Savannah’s maritime-rich River Street, and to Forsyth Park along the Bull Street corridor (named "One of the Most Beautiful Places in America").
Historically in colonial old Savannah, the lands of the two seamen cottages (now Green Palm Inn) would have been instead the needful rice fields and life-saving vegetable farms (after being cleared of pine forests) that were noted in The Travels of William Bartram, a colonial botanist. Located near East Broad Street along the eastern entrance of the British-colonial palisades’ protection wall, colony settlers and traders, European missionaries, indigenous American Indians, and later African slaves would enter into Colonial Savannah by way of King Street -- later renamed “President Street” after the American Revolution.
In a 3-minute online video (http://www.greenpalminn.com) Innkeeper Diane McCray showcases the historic inn’s unforgettable charm, her homemade hearty breakfast, and full-of-chatter-and-information morning welcome to begin each day. Expect encouragement to walk, stroll, and explore world-famous Savannah to fully appreciate its charm.
