We couldn’t be more excited about our 2016 Holiday Special Offer at Historic Inns of Savannah! Beginning November 25, all reservations made on our own websites for stays through December 25 at The Marshall House, East Bay Inn, Olde Harbour Inn, Eliza Thompson House, The Gastonian, and The Kehoe House will receive a 10% discount. Plus, a portion of your stay will be donated to America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia.
The idea originated with our Staff — the bellmen, guest service representatives, housekeepers, kitchen staff, concierges, and maintenance teams — who wanted to make a charitable contribution to the community this holiday season.
With the inaugural Holidays on Broughton festivities starting this weekend, it’s an exceptionally good time to enjoy a Savannah getaway, and give back to the community at the same time. To join us in the giving, book the Save & Give promotion for a stay with us between Nov 25 & Dec 25.
