If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Savannah, Georgia in a few years, you might want to ask yourself why. In addition to being one of the Peach State's most historic cities — it was the first state capital in 1733 — it is also one of the most beautiful.
The Hostess City, as she is known, is home to 22 park-like squares which are idyllic spots to sit and enjoy the myriad of oak trees draped in their Spanish moss… a truly relaxed setting. And while there are many accommodation options — we recommend The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa on Hutchinson Island, where the old world and the new perfectly interact.
Known as The South’s Downtown Resort, this gem of southern hospitality is uniquely situated a stone’s throw from historic river street across the Savannah River, offering optimal serenity along with quick access to downtown via the five-minute complimentary Savannah Belle’s water ferry. More importantly, the resort offers world class golf & spa options while providing exclusive access to downtown’s best experiences.
