  • Thinking of coming in December will the city be decorated for the holidays and when would be a good time to see the decorations

    Usually the City starts decorating the squares and downtown just after Thanksgiving. Individual properties and businesses, are right around that time also, right before the Historic Holiday Tour of Homes event the first or second week of December.

  • Is your parking on the premises?

    Thank you for your interest in the Eliza Thompson House, in response to your question about parking. It is metered street parking only. However, you will need to purchase a parking pass from the front desk at the cost of $15.00 for a 24 hour period or a $30 pass that will cover a 48 hour period. We will be happy to explain this when you arrive. The meters are monitored in the downtown area Monday through Saturday from 8am until 8pm; Sunday they are free. With the above pass you can park at any meter that is over an hour anywhere in the downtown area. Or you can use it at any one of the City of Savannah Parking garages. The most troublesome time to obtaining a space, is on either Monday or Thursday nights, those are the nights the Department of Sanitation, schedules the street sweeping in the downtown area. The bellmen do a wonderful job of assisting guests in the quest for parking on these nights.

  • Looking for a hallmark Christmas movie experience in December. What do you have going on in December?

    Being an avid fan of Hallmark Christmas movies, I know just what you mean about the movie experience. Savannah has it's own charm when it comes to celebrating holidays. From the 1st week in December with the Christmas Tour of Homes and Inns, to the Boat Parade, the Christmas Parade on River Street, the lighting of the 50ft Christmas tree, Whitefield Square with it's gazebo all decked out in red Christmas bows, and do not miss the Savannah Theater's production of Holiday Traditions.

Property info

Built in 1847, The Eliza Thompson House offers visitors a private, peaceful retreat just a short walk from Savannah's historic attractions. The Eliza Thompson House consists of 12 rooms in the "main house" and 13 rooms in a "carriage house", which overlooks the courtyard. One of the most enchanting Savannah boutique hotels, the inn includes a brick-paved garden courtyard and beautiful moss-draped trees. It is located on beautiful Jones Street, just a block away from Mrs. Wilkes famous restaurant and a short walk to Forsyth Park. Enjoy Savannah's charm during the day, and spend your evenings relaxing in The Eliza Thompson House's private courtyard. Lush greenery and moss covered crepe myrtle trees compliment the courtyard's focal point: a flowing Ivan Bailey fountain. Japanese koi grace a small pool at the base of the fountain, and delightful benches, tables, and chairs tucked into corners provide several places for you to enjoy a slow paced afternoon in Savannah.

Neighborhood info

Lined by massive live oak and magnolia trees, the world-famous, brick-paved Jones Street will charm you with its elegant old homes, including the Eliza Thompson House. Much of the original brick has been replaced over the years, but in some areas the original brick and pavers remain. Visitors will find a multitude of interesting shops and antique stores within walking distance of The Eliza Thompson House. Many of the shops around the Inn are a part of The Downtown Design District, a collection of high-end shops and art galleries which specialize in everything from fine linens to local art. You'll also find restaurants like Mrs. Wilkes and Clary's Cafe, both Savannah traditions, right on Jones Street. Forsyth Park, The Mercer House and The Green Meldrim House are all located within a block or two of the Inn.
