“The grand Ballastone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

My wife and I spent four nights at the Ballastone Inn in early January. We selected the Oglethorpe State Room on the fourth floor because of its comfortable sitting area and fireplace. We chose well. In all respects, the room, the inn and the people who run it met our high expectations (at $300+ per night, expectations should be high). The room was beyond comfortable. The breakfast outstanding. The service warm and attentive but not overly so. And plenty of room for privacy. If you don't want to mingle with strangers, you don't have to. If forced to complain, I'd say simply that the coffee could be stronger. And the recommended tour guide told us little more than what was on the historic markers and in "the book," which I was reading. Otherwise, I would highly recommend the Ballastone Inn, and we will likely return.

Room Tip: There's a great variety, from expensive to really expensive. The front desk, and web site, will...

My husband and I stayed here right after Christmas for a belated 25th anniversary celebration. The Inn was beautifully decorated and it is a lovey and cozy place. The food was wonderful and afternnoon tea made the day. Everything was delicious. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The Inn is within walking distance of everything. This is the only place to stay in Savannah.

We stayed at the Ballastone Inn between Christmas and New Year. It was a wonderful escape after a very busy holiday season. We stayed in Rhett Butler's retreat, and the linens were exquisite, we did not want to get out of bed in the mornings. The accommodations, as well as the attentiveness of the staff, made our stay in Savannah memorable! We will return.

We loved our experience at the Inn. Everything and everyone was "top notch." The breakfast had to be the best we have ever had. I still remember the taste of the orange ricotta pancakes. This breakfast fills you up and you are warmly received and taken care of to the "nth" degree. The hors d'oeuvres for cocktails were second best of all. But, the people who run the house should be honored everyday they work for the inn. Their helpful suggustions and overalll care made for the ultimate experience. We hated to go on with our trip... Thank you!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Gazebo Room with another room (Oglethorpe) that was connected to us for our friend.

My wife and I spent an overnight in Savannah and were thoroughly delighted with our stay at the Ballastone Inn. Christy was outstanding in helping with our last minute reservations and got back to us with room and arrival details speedily. When we arrived for our first visit to Savannah, the Inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas, tea was being served in the parlor creating a gracious and welcoming atmosphere; and our room was classically and richly decorated and comfortably laid out. This is a first class property with excellent customer service. An exceptional find. We're world travelers and we'd rank the Ballastone as a unique property with a staff that demonstrates customer focus that exceeds expectations. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Free parking behind the Inn
