Spending an evening in Savannah’s historic district is always a treat.
But spending an evening in the historic district on a ghost trolley tour, followed by a night in a posh downtown hotel with views of the Savannah River & bridge, then waking to a breakfast that manages to be both decadent and healthy – well, that is downright divine.
We recently had the memorable experience of doing all that at DoubleTree by Hilton Savannah Historic District. We were there as part of a special free night for Savannah bloggers organized by DoubleTree & could not have had a better experience.
DoubleTree’s Spook, Slumber & Save package is the ideal date night staycation getaway for parents who really need a night off or for moms’ groups in need of a rockin’ moms’ night out. The hotel is right next to River Street & City Market.
Think fun fall-themed drinks in DoubleTree’s hotel bar followed by truly spooky stories aboard the open-air Old Savannah Tours ghost trolley tour. DoubleTree’s Spook, Slumber & Save package includes one tour ticket per person for the enticing two-hour ghost tour, overnight accommodations, parking with complimentary valet service and a hot Southern breakfast each morning of your stay.
Our ghost tour guide – Savannah native Desiree – had a knack for sharing Savannah’s haunting lore in a way that made it both entertaining & educational. We crept down the stairs into the rum cellar of the Pirates’ House & really hoped for a ghost encounter while inside the “Infrared Room” at the Sorrel-Weed House, where you can watch eerie orbs on the four cameras located in the basement.
The ghost stories Desiree told & downtown haunted landmarks we visited were a welcome reminder of something all busy Savannah parents need to remember – that we live in a remarkably rich city that is simply teeming with history and depth.
What better way to celebrate that than with a sweet Fall staycation in our very own downtown Savannah.
And with a warm DoubleTree by Hilton chocolate chip cookie!
