Sleep in One of Savannah’s Architectural Masterpieces
Like our Spanish-moss-draped city herself, Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District is the perfect mix of old and new. The building—known to locals as the “Grand Lady on the Bay” due to her sweeping size—was once 19th-century mega-merchant Simon Guckenheimer’s dry goods storage house and shop. Now, the Grand Lady stands as a charming boutique Hotel Indigo with modern style in a vibrant Ellis Square setting that reflects the essence of Savannah’s renowned historic district. Keep reading for a list of reasons to book your room at Savannah’s largest boutique hotel.
1. Hotel Indigo spoils the whole family – even the furry family members!
The new Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District is a pet-friendly hotel. With “Yappy Hour” and cool pet-packages, Hotel Indigo is rolling out the red carpet for your fur-babies!
2. Hotel Indigo embraces the history of Savannah.
A nationally registered landmark, the former tobacco warehouse and grocer built by Simon Guckenheimer, is an authentic piece of Savannah’s history and was once a major contributor to the portside marketplace. Plans for the new hotel included reducing the current structure completely down to its bare bones leaving only its original historical shell.
3. When you stay at Hotel Indigo, you’re supporting local businesses.
Hotel Indigo features locally sourced food (within 90 miles) on their menu, local favorites in their market, local beer on tap, local artwork in guest rooms and throughout the hotel from local artist and gallery owner Meryl Truett. Even the wall covering in their lobby bathrooms are inspired by the squares of Savannah!
