A sultry Savannah hot spot
When Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront was built in 2009, it caused quite a stir in Savannah. As the newest lodging on Historic River Street, this boutique hotel had the difficult task of blending into the historic city skyline while also embracing its modern, luxurious side. The result is a destination that is beautiful, mysterious and playful — much like Savannah itself.
The second hotel in Savannah to join Marriott's Autograph Collection, the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Bohemian transformed a formerly underutilized eyesore of a structure into a hotel designed to look reminiscent of a riverboat, utilizing hundred-year-old dark wood for the floors and details such as stringed gems that could pass for long-lost treasures. It all adds up to a softly lit, romantic ambience with an amazing Savannah River view, especially from the sexy rooftop bar, Rocks on the Roof.
Each room also nods to the sea with oyster shell light fixtures in the bathrooms. Shells are also featured in the aforementioned lounge, as well as the downstairs restaurant, Rocks on the River. Speaking of which, weekend guests should take advantage of Rocks on the River’s Sunday brunch — 13 different eggs Benedict and Bloody Marys made with horseradish vodka — but dinner holds its own as well with plays on Southern favorites such as chicken and waffles kicked up a notch with Boursin cheese and pink peppercorn jam. The restaurant serves up gourmet pizzas, hand-pressed dumplings and plenty of seafood entrées along with premium, aged Black Angus hand-selected by Kessler himself.
