The Art of Luxury!

Recently I told you about the two fantastic properties in Savannah, Georgia; i.e., The Bohemian Hotel and The Mansion on Forsyth Park.  Now I want to give you the rest of the story.  If you missed part one you should go to and click on Savannah / Bohemian Hotel.
Besides having the most beautiful setting and extremely comfortable beds, The Mansion on Forsyth Park has the 700 Drayton Restaurant, the 700 Kitchen Cooking School and the Poseidon Spa along with Jeff McLaughlin, the General Manager, and Savannah’s most professional hospitality team.  It does not get much better than this!
Let me start by telling you that the 700 Drayton Restaurant is a celebrated experience with a vibrant cocktail lounge known as the Casimir’s Lounge, chic artwork and stunning chandeliering and of course the dining areas that nestle into this 1888 Savannah Mansion.  The menu is a world experience with foods prepared by top chefs in their magnificent kitchens.  The menu varies and offers low country foods like Wild Caught Shrimp Ceviche, Georgia Spot Tail Bass, Roasted Pork and Carolina Sea Scallops, Roasted Beef Tenderloin and more.  Just wait until you try the House Made Banana Bread Pudding!  That is to die for!
There is also a 700 Cooking School housed in the facility that offers hands on opportunity to cook with the Chefs.  Believe me when you have the experience that I had you will feel like one of the best!  Darin Sehnert, the Cooking School Director, had me making “real Southern grits” from scratch and preparing shrimp for that famous dish known as “Shrimp and Grits”.  My class members thought I should go into the business, but I have already been there and done that!  What a shame I am not living in Savannah, as I would attend every class offered by Darin.  He is very personable, and as the head guy, he is very professional.  One day you will see Darin with his own television show.  When in Savannah contact him through the hotel at 912-238-5181 or go to  You will thank me!
Another exceptional experience at the Mansion is the Poseidon Spa.  The swimming pool draped with beautiful soft white sheers canopying the entire OPEN DECK is a picture in itself.  The treatments range from the Spa Manicure, the Poseidon Lavender Bliss Pedicure, Ultra Soothing Eye Treatment, and the Ocean Silk Body Wrap to the Poseidon’s Signature Scrub and more.  You must indulge your senses, give your body a lift and totally relax and nourish your mind.  OMG, how I discovered Paradise on Earth!
Finally, the location of The Mansion on Forsyth Park is center to everything you will enjoy while touring Savannah.  Just a walk in the parks all the way to Bay Street is a treat in itself.  For those who enjoy shopping there are many quaint boutiques and shops along the way.
Directly across the street and in connection with the City of Savannah, the Mansion will be adding a new adventure called Café on Forsyth Park for special events, weddings, receptions, parties, and more.  Also there is a classic outdoor amphitheatre where concerts will be presented featuring some of the greatest orchestras and performers.  So, as you can see, this is and will continue to be the “in” spot for those who know when visiting Savannah. 
If you have any questions, you can call the front desk at 912-238-5158.  When they answer, you will fully understand why Savannah is known for its hospitality.  Thank you for giving me the opportunity to discover your qualities of life!
Until next time, I thank you for your many comments regarding travel and entertainment.  You know I am there to find the very best.
