36 Hours in Savannah
I had to take some new paintings to the Atlantic Beacon Gallery on Tybee Island this weekend so I combined a little business with pleasure! My sweet husband booked a room at The Mansion on Forsyth. It is really beautiful and worthy of its 4 star ranking. As we walked up, I realized that part of this beautiful building used to be a funeral home. I didn't tell sweet husband and not surprisingly it was not mentioned in any of the promo literature.
The picture below is at the hotel entrance.
This is the entrance to the great restaurant and also the old funeral home, but I kept it to myself for a while...I am really not good at keeping secrets.
This is the ceiling of the elevator...the light shines from above it illuminating the image. This is the fountain across the street in the park!
The walls in the lobby were covered with silk and had these fabulous paintings. Very Modern and avant garde. It is a perfect combination of modern decor with historic architecture.
These are the hallways leading to the guest rooms. I could not believe all of the great paintings!
Interesting Sculpture by the elevator...picture is a little blurry...sorry!
Ok, I loved these chairs in the restaurant... so unexpected and comfy too!
More Chairs! This one is guilded with gold lame back and leather seat. It sounds horrible, but it really works. Whoever decorated this hotel had guts and creativity! Yes, that is blue crushed velvet on the drapes in the background. I know, but it really works.
They were the best that I have ever had and I loved that they were offered for breakfast! I love them, but you know I hate the way the house smells after I fry. Nothing like a cast iron skillet, some cornmeal, and Wesson oil! I just wish it wasn't so bad for your diet. I did not tell my trainer today about the fried food.
