Planters Inn Review

Formerly the John Wesley Hotel, this inn has the service and the charisma of a landmark Savannah property. Yet with an elevator and the evening reception with cheese, fruit, and good wine it's a nightly house party where the concierge introduces fellow guests, a good cross-section of leisure and business travelers, many of whom are repeats. The inn is housed in a structure built in 1812. The lobby retains the regal tone of a bygone golden age with classical music adding to the ambience. Guest rooms are decorated with fine fabrics and Baker furnishings (a 1920s design named for the Dutch immigrant cabinetmaker). Continental breakfast is delivered to the rooms. Either a mini-refrigerator or microwave can be rented at an additional charge. Guests are asked (with a wink) not to disturb the friendly ghost who reputedly inhabits the hotel. The best rooms overlook Reynolds Square; some have working fireplaces.
