If you do, this is the place to do it!
First of all, this inn is located on Oglethorpe Street, so you will get THE best location of Savannah....a wonderful historic part of the city, but yet all the sites you might want to see all within a short walk.
Secondly, you will never find an inn that is run like this. ANY tip that is given to ANY member of the staff is put into a central fund to be split with ALL the members of the staff.......that is how tightly-knit these staff members are! Kudos to them!
Now we are getting to the meat of the things! Trust me, you will have to look VERY far to find an inn that treats its guests any better than Ballastone. They offer a breakfast that you will remember for a very long time (that Cinnamon French Toast was to die for!!!!). Then they present their daily 4 PM tea for you......a wonderful assortment of both teas and goodies. Think you are done??? No, not yet.......they also offer daily hors d'oeuvres at 6 PM too.
If the goodies still don't entice you, the staff and the amenities of the inn will do that. Melissa is THE best for greeting you and making you feel like you are part of the family. The courtyard at Ballastone will remove all the stresses of your life......it is so wonderful! The rooms are so varied in size and ambiance, so you need to go to their website to pick your room, but I am sure that there is no room that will not please you. A surprising feature of the Ballastone Inn is that they leave the doors of all vacant rooms open for your perusal......a great way to plan your next visit there!
The best part of the inn is that they actually have parking for 7 vehicles.............a feat in this city of limited parking! So you can park your car when you arrive and leave it there until you leave as most of historic Savannah is well within walking distance.
Our first time here, but definitely not our last!
