The Olde Savannah Inn Blog

Savannah Bed and Breakfast Our Bed and Breakfast ETIQUETTE

kathleen Dupuis - Thursday, January 31, 2013

 I have been asked by several of my guests who have never stayed at a Savannah Bed and Breakfast - What is the protocol? Can we come and go, or is there a curfew? Where do we park? Can we check in early? These are all reasonable questions and as you have requested,  I will try to clarify some of the concerns.

First of all, I have been very blessed to have some of the most outstanding guests.  Many have never experienced staying at a Bed and Breakfast in Savannah, and normally stay in a hotel. There is NO comparison. If you are visiting Savannah, YOU MUST TRY THE OLDE SAVANNAH INN.   If you don't choose The Olde Savannah Inn, there are 44 other Inns in Savannah from which to choose.  In our opinion, the inns are better than any Savannah Hotel or Vacation rental. The bed and breakfasts allow you to experience luxury and the comfort of home at the same time.  (Suggestion -READ THE TRIPADVISOR REVIEWS). 

The Olde Savannah Inn is one of the finest Inns in Savannah and prides itself on paying the most attention to detail.  In order to serve you better, we ask you to come at the check in time, which is 4:00 pm.   Prior to 4:00 pm we are preparing the rooms to ensure they are ready and waiting for your arrival.  When we meet at 4:00, although I greet you at the front door with a big warm hug, please take a moment to introduce yourselves.  Most of the time, I will know who you are and what room you are going to stay in. I try to do my homework before your arrival.  If you are going to be later than 4:00 check in, please call.  I will make other arrangements. Usually, I wait  for guests unless it is going to be really late. Then we will make arrangement for you to pick up a key to your room.

 

After I settle you into your room and make you comfortable, then we will discuss parking.  I know parking is a big issue, but our most important issue, and what we get most excited about, is meeting youRemember, this house was built in 1877, and there were no cars.  Fortunately, we are able to offer FREE Parking on a First come First Serve. We can accommodate 4 small to mid-size cars with the gates closed. Parking is extra at many of Savannah's other Inns or Bed and Breakfasts. 

 As an innkeeper, the most important issue I have is getting you settled and comfortable. After the car has been parked, I then act as your hostess and  will offer you either a refreshing glass of my Caribbean Ice tea or a pino Grigio or maybe merlot, it is your choice. Then, to get your Savannah Vacation off to a great start, I will give you maps of the city.  I will even prepare all your dinner reservations, or reservations for Savannah Ghosts Tours, or Historic Carriage Tours if you'd like.  In fact, the best way to prepare for your Savannah visit is to call me the week before your arrival and get all my recommendations. Your vacation is then off to a great start and you can utilize your time just seeing all the Savannah sites, instead of wondering what to do. It is all done for you . COMPLIMENTARY!

Most of our guests enjoy walking through the manicured 23 squares.  We advise our guests to wear comfortable shoes as they go out into the city. When you return to the Olde Savannah Inn, you will be greeted with our famous Southern Hospitality and will be invited to try our evening port.  Something is always brewing in Kathleen's kitchen. I will always ask you if I can offer you anything. We don't have private refrigerators in our rooms, because that would spoil the elegance and ambience . Unless you have spoken with the innkeeper, about maybe storing medicine or leftovers, our kitchen refrigerator is for the INNS USE ONLY. Please let the the innkeeper know what your needs are during your stay.

I have designed an impeccable Savannah Bed and Breakfast and have invested time, money, and love into creating a luxurious, romantic, and comfortable Inn. I ask that all of my guests take care of my home with love and respect. All of the rooms have the finest linens, that were made in Europe. I ask my guests to help in  preserving the rooms for the next guest.  Remember, this is a private home and not a HOTEL.  Please leave your room as you would like guests in your home to leave their room. Emily Posts tells us in her "Book Of ETIQUETTE" to leave the room as you found it.  Travelers who frequently visit traditional bed and breakfasts understand that manners do matter, and that they should treat someone else's home better than their own. 

 

We strive to succeed in offering you our Best Customer Service.  We leave gratuity envelopes in all our rooms to allow you to say "Thank You" for all that we did for you during your stay. It is not mandatory.  However, most of our guests recognize the hard work that is put into the hospitality industry, and welcome the idea of leaving a gratuity.  If you prefer not to leave a gratuity, please do not throw the gratuity envelope away.  Please leave them for the next guest.
 

I hope I have been able to clarify some questions and have reassured those B&B Goers this is the way to visit Savannah. Welcome to Savannah ...
We are honored you have chosen our Savannah Bed and Breakfasts, and we will work very hard to serve you and provide you with the BEST Of Savannah. A smile goes a long way.

Your Innkeeper and Hostess,

Miss Kathleen

Tip : Never leave any Savannah Bed and Breakfast without saying" Thank You and Goodbye"

78th Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens

kathleen Dupuis - Sunday, January 27, 2013

We have posted some of the highlights from the brochure for the upcoming Tour of Homes and Gardens in Savannah, GA.  The 78th annual tour will take place on March 21- 24, 2013.  For More information visit www.savannahtourofhomes.org.

 

Join the Annual Savannah Tour of Homes and Gardens in

 

Celebrating 78 Years of Hospitality, Preservation and

Community Giving.

 

 

 

The Tour offers a rare opportunity to enter some of Savannah's

finest private homes and experience the architecture, furnishings

and collections that have been treasured by families for

generations, but seldom seen by the public. In addition to

walking tours, you will enjoy seminars, special events and some

of the best food and hospitality the South has to offer. These

properties have all been meticulously restored, preserving the

character of the space and allowing enjoyment of modern

amenities. Several incorporate more current design trends.

Savannah was founded in 1733 by General James Edward

Oglethorpe, whose colonial plan was based on a grid

incorporating residences, primary thoroughfares and spacious

public squares. The 2013 Tour features homes in two of

Savannah's National Register Historic Districts. Downtown is

home to the largest urban National Historic Landmark District

in the United States. In this single square mile area, you will

find a genteel city encompassing the beauty, architecture and

history of the old South. Twenty-two oak-canopied squares

surrounded by lovely homes, businesses and churches give

Downtown Savannah a character of its own.

Ardsley Park, Savannah's first planned suburban area, recently

celebrated its 100th anniversary. Featured on our Sunday Tour,

Ardsley's creative concept of variable lot sizes yields an infinite

variety of large homes, gardens, cottages and bungalows. Today,

the tree-lined streets of Ardsley Park intersect circles and parks

offering a very livable, as well as walkable, neighborhood.

Home and Garden Tours are self-guided with a different group

of six to nine sites featured each of the four days. You may visit

these selected sites in any order during a three-hour period at

your own pace. The homes vary in age, size and style; they may

have high-stooped entries with steep steps to climb. Most are

NOT handicapped accessible. We regret that animals and

service animals cannot be admitted into the homes. Please wear

appropriate walking shoes for your comfort and safety and to

protect the integrity of the homes.

Savannah 1840 -1860 

Massie Heritage Center, 207 East Gordon Street

5:30 PM to 7:00 PM Tickets $40

Wine and cheese served. Must be 21 or older to participate.

In terms of population growth, infrastructure investment, the

development of civic institutions and overall growth rate of

economic expansion and population, the 20 years leading up to

the Civil War was in many ways a golden age for Savannah.

Although blighted by the institution of slavery, the city

nevertheless produced a generation of leaders—both black and

white—whose vision, energy and accomplishments are simply

breathtaking given the resources at their disposal. In those years,

the city doubled in size, set the price for cotton on the east

coast, and built numerous schools, hospitals, churches and

hotels. And, as businesses expanded aggressively, parks were

established and orphanages and other charitable institutions

were funded. During these years, a sewage and storm water

system—some of which still serve the city—a gas lighting

system, and waterworks that delivered fresh water to homes,

were initiated along with the expansion of the city’s police and

fire departments, its harbor, and the establishment of new

shipping lines. During these years of growth, not one but three

railroads were established—and all on a tax base of about 3,000

households. How did they do it? The answer is leadership—

extraordinary leadership— and this was provided by both

Savannah’s black and white communities. Presented by Barry

Sheehy and Vaughnette Goode-Walker, authors of Civil War

Savannah, Immortal City and Brokers, Bankers and Bay Lane,

at the historic Massie School opened in 1856 as Savannah’s first

free public school.

Davenport House, visitors will sample and learn the social

Scouts of America, guests will view activities that Juliette's

    Start planning NOW to attend the 189th St. Patrick's Day festivities! 

     

    Almost 200 years ago a small group of Irish immigrants marched in the streets of Savannah to remember the death of the Patron Saint, Saint Patrick of Ireland.  At that time the city was only 80 years old, and had become a favorite place for the Irish to settle.  Their own country suffered from the potato famine as well as political persecution.

     

    That initial "parade" became the first of what is now a 200 year old tradition.  Today, the festivities begin approximately two weeks prior to the parade. Some of these traditional events include the Investiture of the Grand Marshal, Greening of the Fountain in Forsyth Park, Tara Feis, Celtic Cross Mass and Ceremony, and Sergeant William Jasper Green Ceremony.

     

    The Olde Savannah Inn, Savannah's award winning bed and breakfast, is in the perfect place to enjoy all the St. Patrick's Day festivities.  Book Now to ensure your front row seat!

    Create Memories for a Lifetime with a stay at a Savannah Bed and Breakfast

    kathleen Dupuis - Sunday, January 06, 2013

     

    Why Choose a Savannah Bed and Breakfast verses a Savannah Hotel?

    Here is why! Savannah is the Best Choice for Southern Hospitality and it's Old World architecture. Currently, we have approximately 45 Bed and Breakfasts in Savannah and they are all unique. Our Olde Savannah Inn is one of a kind and specializes in the ultimate luxury and world class elegance. Attention to detail is a MUST...We are very fortunate to have so many lovely bed and breakfasts to welcome guests from all over the world and I must say there is nothing comparable to our Savannah Innkeepers. Martha's Vineyard is a favorite spot for me, still there is no place like Savannah for it's generous offerings and gracious hospitality.

     

    As a native from Boston, I grew up in the Northern culture until I moved here in 2005 and I was taught to SLOW DOWN. The leisure of the Southern lifestyle is so much more relaxing and appealing instead of living in the fast lane. Before I purchased the Olde Savannah Inn, I had never had the opportunity of a Bed and Breakfast experience but I knew how I would like to be treated if I ever stayed in a Bed and Breakfast. It is an honor to stay in a private home verses a hotel as it is such an up close and personal experience. If you are not a people person, and you are one of those people who want to become invisible then the Hotel is for you.

    Upon entering a Savannah Bed and Breakfast or Savannah Inn, you are warmly greeted by hard working and caring Innkeepers who have been preparing for your visit and are excited to have you as a guest in their Savannah B&B. When you stay at a Savannah Hotel, You will be greeted very professionally by the front desk clerk who has a job to do and will issue you a key or slot card to your room and there is no personal connection to your stay. You will have come and gone and very seldom will you be remembered . Just doing Business as usual.

    You can invest in future memories that will last a lifetime when you choose a Bed and Breakfast in Savannah. After having the experience of being an innkeeper for six years and more, I would always encourage visitors to stay in one of our beautiful Savannah Inns, One of my favorites is The Olde Savannah Inn. Why! Best Gourmet candlelight/Big band Southern Breakfast fit for a KING. There is no hotel in Savannah that will offer you the gourmet breakfast, freshly made homemade treats, coffee served in a French Press and crisp pressed European linens that beckon you to a sleep you probably haven't experienced in years.

    Savannah Innkeepers are gladly ready to assist you with all of your Savannah plans for your Georgia vacation. From the finest Savannah Cuisine to Tybee Island's Crab Shack , we plan your entire Savannah vacation and most of us offer FREE PARKING onsite. You cannot beat that. Most of the Savannah Hotels charge you parking fees and extras just to stay at their establishment.  You have no rapport with management or the owner because to a hotel, it is just doing business. As a guest in the Savannah Bed and Breakfasts, we know who you are, we go out of our way to get to know you and care about how your stay goes. We are friends you haven't met yet...Come , stay at a beautiful mansion that you can call home while visiting the most enchanting city in the South.  Choose The Olde Savannah Inn, and create memories for a lifetime.

    See you Soon,

    Your Savannah Innkeeper and Friend, Miss Kathleen
