Savannah, GA – January 2017 – The Kehoe House has been recognized as a winner in the Small Hotel and Romantic Hotel categories of the 2017 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards. The honor names The Kehoe House as the 12th Top Small Hotel and the 11th Top Romantic Hotel in the United States. The Kehoe House is currently ranked the #1 hotel in Savannah, Georgia.
“Our passionate and talented staff truly deserves the credit for this wonderful achievement,” said Hugh Osborne, Innkeeper at The Kehoe House.
“Our chef, concierge, and housekeeping teams are excited to treat each stay as a very special occasion, and they work very hard to deliver the best to guests from all over the world,” he said. “I could not be more proud of them.”
The Kehoe House is a 13-room historic inn with a rich and colorful history. The Inn is known for its unique architecture featuring private verandas, and is one of the most photographed sites in Savannah. Specialties include elopements, small weddings, honeymoons and anniversary celebrations.
Built in 1891 as a home for William Kehoe and his family, the house was sold by the Kehoe heirs in 1930. Over the next 30 years, the property was used as a boarding house, a funeral parlor, and was held for a time by Alabama and New York Jets football star, Joe Namath. In 1990, Mr. Namath sold the property, and after a two-year renovation, the property opened as a Historic Bed and Breakfast Inn aptly named The William Kehoe House. Today, The Kehoe House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and in addition to its recent honors from TripAdvisor, it is a AAA 4-diamond award winner, and recipient of multiple “Best of Savannah” awards.
The Kehoe House faces Columbia Square, one of Savannah’s famous planned-city features, and is just one block off Broughton Street, where guests find unique shopping destinations and delicious dining options.
Rates include a gourmet made-to-order breakfast, wine & hors d’oevres, and turndown service. The Kehoe House’s website features special offers and seasonal packages.
Book a room direct with the hotel at www.KehoeHouse.com or by calling 1-800-820-1020.

If you’re looking for an elegant, easy and affordable Savannah Elopement Package, The Gastonian has a new private wedding-for-two package that will help you have the wedding of your dreams — without spending too much.
This beautiful historic Inn on Gaston Street has always been a stunning place to get married. It’s best known for its ultra-luxurious honeymoon suite that features a romantic whirlpool tub, two fireplaces and a beautiful adjacent balcony. While truly exquisite, the honeymoon suite is a one-of-a-kind and isn’t always available. The Gastonian’s new elopement package introduces more room options, and a lower price, making it easier than ever to have a lovely, and on-budget, private wedding here.
15 Guest Rooms Available for our Affordable Savannah Elopement Package
Starting at just $1,299 plus tax, The Gastonian’s new Savannah Elopement Package includes: a two-night stay, the ceremony location (our private garden next to the fountain is a favorite), the Officiant, a small cake, chilled champagne and floral arrangements. The room-choice options now include 15 guest rooms. That’s every room in the house, except the honeymoon and penthouse suites.
Here’s a look at three of our favorite rooms available in the new $1,299 package:
An elopement at The Gastonian is a private, personal experience for couples, and the new room and price options now available make an elopement here more affordable. If you’re looking for a Savannah Elopement Package that will meet your dreams, but not break the bank, give The Gastonian a call to discuss the details of this new package.

Are you a dog-parent? If so, you know the worst thing about travel is leaving your pet at home. No matter how good the sitter or the kennel, it’s just doesn’t feel right to leave a member of the family behind. The solution is easy if you’re headed to pet-friendly Savannah, Georgia — bring your dog with you and enjoy walking, touring, dining and shopping together!
Here’s a list of things you can do and places you can visit with your dog in downtown historic Savannah.
1) Take a Self-Guided Savannah Walking Tour
You’ll get to see the city at your own pace, and your pup will get training and exercise en route. With 22 parks and squares, Savannah’s downtown area is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the US. The historic district is a great place to to walk, and you’ll definitely find lots of “like-minded” dog owners out enjoying the city every day.
Take note of the convenient doggie waste receptacles Savannah has installed for you and your pup. Most of the downtown squares have an in-ground waste receptacle, noted by a green metal lid with a white stencil of a dog on it. You just open it by pressing a pedal with your foot, and you can dispose of whatever your dog left behind and continue on your walk. You’ll even find doggie water fountains positioned at nose level for your dog. There are two in Forsyth Park, one in Troupe Square, and another in Ellis Square.
2) Go on a Pet-Friendly Savannah Tour
Several of the Tour Companies will allow well-mannered and leashed dogs on their tours. Most walking tours are pet-friendly, including favorites like Savannah Dan, a familiar seersucker-clad guide who gives 90-minute walks through the historic district. We recommend Oglethorpe Tours for a trolley tour if your dog prefers to ride. But perhaps the most dog-centric tour you’ll find in Savannah is Oliver Bentley’s Historic Dog Walk Tour. This is a history tour that’s all about your four-legged friend and includes a walk-about-bag of gluten-free healthy dog treats for the tour. Oliver Bentley’s website is worth a visit for their fun video of dogs on tour.
3) Enjoy Pet-Friendly Savannah Dining
If you think you’ll be eating take-out in your hotel room for every meal just because you brought your dog, think again! Check out the list of pet-friendly restaurants with outdoor seating below. Savannah’s become quite the town for foodies over the past few years. Combine our love for food with our affection for dogs, and you’ve got a winning combination for pet-friendly restaurants. Of course, dogs aren’t allowed to dine indoors, but that’s what the outdoor tables are for! In fact, any time you see an outdoor table, you can almost guarantee your dog will be welcome. Here’s a list of some of our favorite places you can take your dog. (Be sure to call ahead if you’re headed out to a specific one listed here, as policies sometimes change!)

If your pup prefers shopping for high-end apparel, toys and snacks for himself, we recommend Woof Gang Bakery. There are three locations in downtown Savannah: in City Market, on Drayton Street, and on River Street. You’ll find treats, dog toys, leashes, collars and accessories galore inside. And Oliver Bentley’s isn’t just for tours. They sell treats and gifts for dogs and their humans in their Wright Square storefront.
6) Stay at a Pet-friendly Savannah B&B
If your idea of a getaway includes first class accommodations, you’re in luck with Savannah’s choice of upscale pet-friendly establishments. East Bay Inn, Olde Harbour Inn and The Gastonian (starting May 1) in historic downtown Savannah are three pet-friendly inns in the heart of Savannah’s landmark historic district. Each is a beautifully restored B&B in a true historic building, with original architectural features like tall ceilings and brick walls. There’s lots of extras, complimentary WiFi, wine and hors d’oeuvres and breakfasts. For your dog, there’s a small welcome gift at check-in and a nice selection of convenient-to-the-outdoors rooms. (The Gastonian will be pet-friendly starting May 2016)
With so many options, we hope you’re ready to take advantage of Savannah’s canine hospitality. Book your next Savannah visit soon, and plan to bring your dog with you. Book Here
