Marshall House Hotel

Guest Author - Nick Greene

Built in 1851, the Marshall House Hotel was the first hotel in Savannah, GA. It was constructed by the father of businesswoman Mary Marshall and has a storied history.

Towards the end of the civil war, it served as a hospital for soldiers, and then later opened for patients during two different yellow fever epidemics. One of its most famous guests was Joel Chandler Harris, author of the Uncle Remus stories, who lived there for several years. It has hosted many other special guests over the years.

That first hotel operated full time at the site until 1895. After that, there were sporadic attempts to make a go of it as a hotel until 1957 when it finally closed. Finally, in 1999, the building was completely restored and reopened. Since then, it has undergone a major renovation in 2008 and stands as one of the most popular lodgings in the area.

Much of the original architecture still stands, such as authentic nineteenth-century doors, windows, railings, moldings and high ceilings. Other luxury touches in some rooms include clawfoot tubs and wrought-iron balconies. Modern conveniences like wired and wireless Internet access and widescreen LCD televisions ensure your comfort. Also on the property is the award-winning restaurant 45 Bistro.

Besides the luxurious accommodations and friendly service, it's possible you'll find one thing that most modern hotels don't have. A ghost.

Most people know that Savannah is one of if not the most haunted city in the US. It has been said that the Marshall House has a very active ghostly presence. Ghosts have been reportedly seen and felt by both employees and visitors. Strange noises have been heard, such as loud crashes and children's voices when none were present.

Whether you want a supernatural experience or just superb accomodations and service, the Marshall House may be for you.
