The Bohemian Review

Clustered among River Street's commercial hustle and bustle but in a class of its own, this boutique hotel opened its doors in 2009 and proved to be a much-needed addition to Savannah's hotel landscape: you won't find the feminine, floral Victorian decor that's so prevalent in Savannah; a stay at the Bohemian is like settling into a gentleman's study in a regal English manse. And in fact the hotel was designed as homage to the British maritime settlers who first colonized this area in 1733, including Gen. James Oglethorpe himself. Think heavy woods studded with brass, dark tufted leather, and elaborate lighting fixtures crafted from shells and driftwood. The Bohemian's rooftop is a chic lounge with indoor and outdoor seating that has become a popular nightspot for locals; the crowd is generally 30 and under, so the scene can be rowdy. A restaurant is located on the River Street level. It's a handsome place to wash up, and like Savannah's founders, you might just be persuaded to stay a while.
