Savannah Day 6 Part 1

This day we checked into our hotel for our honeymoon. I hate to overload on pics! so for this post, I am solely just going to show you where we stayed and what it had to offer. I really wanted to stay somewhere historic in a bed & breakfast type place; however, the Marshall House was more in our budget. Not to mention, I thought it was in a great location right in the middle of the historic district.
 Outside entrance
btw, if you're having to drive from a hotel outside the historic district, it is free to park on broughton as long as you don't park in front of the yellow lines. :)
Staircase as soon as you walk in.
Lounge area downstairs. At 5:30-7 pm, they do complimentary cheese/crackers and wine on that table. Non-alcoholic beverage is pink lemonade. All is very yummy by the way!
Definitely was an added bonus to staying here. I enjoyed this ammenity:))))
A couple of nights while down for the wine and cheese hour, LC and I played checkers in the lounge area. Of course, he won. Go figure!!!! ;)
The hotel has an atrium where the complimentary breakfast is served each morning. It is light and airy, and the breakfast was yummy too. They served typical breakfast stuff such as cereal, biscuits, danishes, quiche, etc. 

Hallway view from our room.
Our room was one of the suites. Not the Mary Marshall, it was the courtyard suite (i think). We had a living room/seating area which was pretty nice because I didn't feel too cramped like I do some times in a hotel room. Notice the coral/gold tote? That's a tote that Tipsy Skipper sent me a year or so ago. I'll be posting about it later, I LOVE!

The suite has a fireplace in it that is original to the room. That side table also serves as a mini fridge. This was handy for keeping water cold to take with us during the day. You walk everywhere in Savannah so water is a MUST! The staff replenishes the two bottles of water when your room is cleaned. The one thing I did like about the Hampton Inn on Bay/Abercorn was there was a cooler downstairs at the entrance that was always stocked with water for guests to have. Came in handy!
 tv in the living room.
One nice thing about this suite is the seating space. You have three chairs, a couch, and a desk with a chair if you were to have people hanging out or meeting in your room. 
The bed is a king size which was good for LC since he's on the tall side. I don't think there were that many pictures on the Marshall House website of the rooms so I wasn't really sure what to think, but it was very nice!
The bedroom also had a tv, and stand for the luggage. I like it when rooms offer a stand because I was able to get my suitcase off the floor and out of the way! 
To the right of the bedroom picture, you'll see an armoire. This is it. It's big enough to hang clothes, has storage space, a safe, an iron, and two bathrobes:)
The bedroom window's view was of the atrium downstairs. 
 
I really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Savannah! I did not eat at the restaurant 45 Bistro which is in the hotel so I couldn't tell you much about it.

It's so funny for me to see this! As a local, I've never actually been inside the hotel, except to eat at 45!
