Jet Life: Perfecting the Unexpected

October 22, 2018

You could say Perry Lane Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel had big shoes to fill though it wasn’t following in the footsteps of a predecessor when it opened among ardent squares in the heart of Savannah’s Historic District this summer.

It was, however, joining a coterie of charming inns and bed & breakfasts that have cinched the coastal town’s reputation for hospitality and grace. Measuring up would take a little of this and a little of that. And so marking The Luxury Collection® Hotels & Resorts’ debut in Georgia’s oldest city, Marriott International has instated a contemporary upscale experience in a destination steeped in rich distinction. Stationed centrally, just steps away from the iconic Forsyth Park, Perry Lane Hotel’s location and exclusive access are the perfect point of entry into the scene and experience of one of the south’s most hip and soulful destinations. If there was a memo on the matter, they got it.

Perry Lane’s answer to the weight of such expectation: 167 refreshingly elegant guest rooms with residential design elements, including 12 expansive suites, a meticulously maintained rooftop pool with sweeping views and Peregrin - its posh rooftop bar, a unique assembling of by some of the area’s best young artists, in-room spa services and fitting variety of dining options including The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market which showcases locally sourced, signature cuisine. The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market also features a wine shop and market with gourmet sandwiches, artisanal cheeses and charcuterie, and Bowerbird Coffee, a vibrant coffee shop.

Modern but not trendy, every detail of the Perry Lane stay has been carefully curated. Each guest room is replete with locally inflected amenities and individual touches.The hotel charges a daily Destination Amenity Fee of $30 plus tax per room per day to provide guests with a quality selection of amenities and services to further their Savannah experience. You’ll be glad to pay it. Stop by the market once a day for a free medium drip coffee at Bowerbird Coffee, a Chef’s appetizer selection at Emporium, and indulge in the daily stash of Byrd Cookies in your room. If you’re looking for quicker way to get around the walkable city, the hotel offers bike rentals as well as car service within two miles of the Historic District. 

The vision of a fictional muse, Adelaide Harcourt, whose life experiences, travels and love of Savannah inspired the hotel’s design and whimsical art collection, which is eclectic and worldly, the interior design direction of Flank, reflects the cultural relevance of Savannah as a major port city in the 18th and 19th centuries and embodies the vibe of an authentic manor house. Perry Lane - one of the city’s first new-build luxury hotels to open in years - embodies one of the wonderful things about Savannah in that its heritage is front and center, contrasting what is fresh and new. Expect the unexpected.
