Southern Comforts: Experience Savannah with Perry Lane Hotel this Summer

Savannah, Georgia is easily one of the loveliest cities in the south. Home to a wealth of wonders, Historic Downtown Savannah has something for every taste. There is Broughton Street and Savannah’s Riverwalk for shopping and dining. If you’re looking to enjoy nature, there’s Forsyth Park (spanning more than 30 acres and home of their iconic fountain) and the beach, Tybee Island, less than 20 miles away. For those seeking cultural experiences, there are plenty of local museums and galleries to explore.

And when it comes to accommodations, Perry Lane Hotel, A Luxury Collection Hotel, checks all the boxes. Named one of the Top 500 Hotels of the Year by Travel + Leisure, a lot of thought went into the design of the hotel, from the chic checkered flooring on their rooftop to the magnificent lobby. Essentially a live-in gallery, the boutique hotel is infused with culture and a worldliness inspired by Adelaide Harcourt’s globetrotting; shelves full of Harcourt’s memories, collectibles, and artwork that she adored are featured throughout the property.

More importantly, Perry Lane embodies the phrase, southern hospitality, ensuring that guests feel welcome in their temporary home away from home. Guest rooms and suites boast a lavish, modern aesthetic that is further elevated with unique art. A true sanctuary, rooms are appointed with the finest bedding, high-end bath products, a stocked bar, and offer sweeping views of the surrounding parks and Historic District. No need to fret about your pet, Perry Lane makes your fur babies feel just as welcome. There are various hotel packages available that either include breakfast at The Emporium Kitchen or trolley tour tickets. And there are specials created for Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida residents. 

The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market is the hotel’s onsite restaurant. A favorite among locals, Emporium only uses quality ingredients that are locally sourced. The menu features main dishes such as Shrimp & Grits, Bone-in Short Rib, and an 8 oz. Filet Mignon, while their cocktail list includes libations with fun names like, Doctor’s Orders, Old Soul, and Ginger Dream. On a hot summer day, the Polo Club (local vodka, Pimm’s, Aperol, strawberry, cucumber, mint and ginger ale) definitely hits the spot. For a quick bite during breakfast time, pop by their coffee shop, Bowerbird; they serve their own unique coffee blend, freshly baked pastries, and tasty grab-and-go options.

The hotel offers some great experiences, including a private Afternoon Tea for groups. Hosted in their cozy library (which has an honor bar), guests are welcomed with a zero-proof cocktail and have their pick of artisanal teas served with a variety of house made pastries, sweets, tea sandwiches, and the traditional accouterments. There is something so deliciously decadent about sipping tea from fine china and nibbling on delicious finger food in the middle of the day.

On the rooftop is their posh bar and lounge, Peregrin and year-round pool decked out like a tropical oasis. Here, patrons are exposed to stunning views while they imbibe their libations. Open from 11 am-11 pm, Peregrin is revered as one of the city’s top rooftop lounges. Another must-stop spot in the hotel is The Wayward --another fun watering hole across from the hotel arcade.

Perry Lane has something for everyone – especially foodies, art enthusiasts, and music lovers, who appreciate their guitar lending program with Benedetto Guitars. And for guests with pups, there is Perry Lane’s unique pet program that hosts a new Pup Walk throughout historic downtown on Saturday mornings.

If you’re looking for a city that has history, luxury, shopping, and culture, Savannah has it all. Let Perry Lane host you while you explore Georgia’s oldest city.

Perry Lane Hotel is located at 256 East Perry Street, Savannah, GA 31401. For more information, call 912.415.9000, email, or visit
