Mansion on Forsyth Park

700 Drayton St., Savannah, Georgia, 31401, United States

Sitting on the edge of Forsyth Park, this Kessler property has dramatic design, opulent interiors with a contemporary edge, and a magnificently diverse collection of some 400 pieces of American and European art, all of which create a one-of-a-kind experience—sophisticated, chic, and artsy only begin to describe it. The newer wings blend perfectly with its historic surroundings and the original, 18,000-square-foot Victorian-Romanesque, redbrick and terra-cotta mansion. Every turn delivers something unexpected—the antique hat collection; the pool with its creative water wall, and a canopied patio that looks like it's out of the Arabian Nights; a Nordic-looking full-service spa; back-lighted onyx panels and 100-year-old Italian Corona–marble pillars. The 700 Drayton Restaurant offers contemporary fine dining and professional, attentive service. Upstairs, Casimir's Lounge, with live piano and jazz, is one of the city's hot spots. Rooms booked on the concierge level receive continental breakfast in the concierge lounge.
