The Dresser Palmer House Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Historic District, Savannah, Georgia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great historic district location, on a tree-lined street
  • All of the rooms have a cozy feel, many with fireplaces, four-poster beds, claw-foot soaking tubs, and/or porches
  • Delicious free breakfast and a free wine hour (except on Sundays)
  • 24-hour concierge
  • Free W-Fi and free parking
  • Most rooms are large and have flat-screen TVs

Cons

  • Lacks the amenities of a larger hotel, such as a fitness center and a pool
  • Some bathrooms are more cramped than others
  • Old tube TVs in some rooms

Bottom Line

The Dresser Palmer House is a charming, historic bed and breakfast in an Italianate townhouse that dates back to 1876. The 16 rooms are each decorated differently but share a similar historic feel, many with four-poster beds, antique-style wood furniture, fireplaces, and patios. All rooms include free Wi-Fi, but the inn lacks amenities -- such as a fitness center and a pool -- that larger hotels in the area have. But the location in the Historic District is hard to beat, and for guests who prefer southern hospitality and the residential-style stay of a quaint B&B, this is one of the best bets in the area.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the southern region of the Historic District, just a few blocks from Forsyth Park

Savannah's Historic District packs plenty of restaurants and bars, many within a short walking distance from The Dresser Palmer House, which stands on a street lined with beautiful old homes. The famous Forsyth Park is just over a block west, and other outdoor spaces can be found just minutes from the front door.

Savannah's charming Historic District is filled with numerous parks and well-kept, architecturally stunning historical buildings. The nightlife isn't as lively here as in other big Southern cities, but many of Savannah's bars (like infamous Pinkie Master's) are in the Historic District -- mostly thanks to the young crowd from the Savannah College of Art and Design.

The Historic District is bordered by the Savannah River and Forsyth Park, and includes the Riverfront and Market City areas.

  • 22-minute drive to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport
  • 3-minute walk to Forsyth Park
  • 5-minute walk to King-Tisdell Cottage, the Museum of Black History
  • 6-minute walk to Savannah College of Art and Design
  • 7-minute walk to various restaurants and bars in the Historic District
  • 10-minute walk to Colonial Park Cemetery
  • 13-minute walk to Owens-Thomas House, a historic home
  • 13-minute walk to the birthplace of Juliet Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts
  • 4-minute drive to Roundhouse Railroad Museum
  • 4-minute drive to Savannah History Museum
  • 6-minute drive to Telfair Museum of Art
  • 7-minute drive to City Market, a casual scene of restaurants and shops
  • 10-minute drive to The Savannah Golf Club
