The excellent location of Hamilton-Turner Inn means you’re just beyond the more heavily foot-trafficked areas of Savannah, such as the nearby Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and Colonial Cemetery, yet only about four blocks from popular River Street. The former home sits facing the greenery of Lafayette Square, one of Savannah’s 22 lush mini parks, in between two desirable residential streets, Charlton and Macon. Both of these are worth a stroll to gaze at the architecture and gawk at the large porches deserving of their original, more gallant name: galleries. Several museums, such as the Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home (where the author grew up) and the Andrew Low House (where one of the region’s most successful cotton merchants lived), share the Savannah hotel’s same square.
