Giving you easy access to the hustle and bustle of River Street, this boutique hotel is a much-needed addition to the hotel landscape—instead of the 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. 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 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.
