Romantic Savannah Honeymoon

kathleen Dupuis - Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Are you planning your wedding and want the most perfect, romantic honeymoon stay of your life?  At The Olde Savannah Inn, we know how important your honeymoon is, and we can provide the most luxurious honeymoon suite, the Versailles Court, for you and your new husband/wife! 

Savannah is one of the most romantic cities in America, perfect for newlyweds!  No matter what you are looking for, Savannah has it all.  From carriage rides, beautiful scenery, amazing restaurants and romantic inns, like The Olde Savannah Inn, you cannot go wrong!

 

When you stay in the Versailles Court for your honeymoon, you are bathed in luxury.  800 count Egyptian Cotton sheets, European linens, a beautiful fireplace, and the best feature of all, a jacuzzi tub!  The tub is nestled between Corinthian columns decorated with timeless sculptures in the most beautiful, romantic bathroom suite in Savannah. A candle-lit gourmet breakfast is served with the most romantic view of the private garden.
