Savannah is a city that shares an interesting relationship with its ghosts. Without a doubt, Savannah, Georgia, is one of the most haunted cities in America--if not the most haunted city in the country--and yet, depending on who you talk to, many local Savannahians turn their noses up at its haunted reputation. Whether its because they'd prefer to believe Savannah is above ghosts and paranormal activity, or whether they are secretly too nervous to discuss the otherwordly, there are many locations in the city who prefer to believe that they are actually alone when they go to sleep at night. (If that makes them sleep better, then more power to them).
And while we never intend to, somehow we find ourselves helping guests plan their entire trip to Savannah--and that does include pointing them in the right direction for which haunted hotels, inns and bed & breakfasts that we highly support. Below we've gathered a list of our favorite haunted hotels and places to stay in the city, where staff are completely open to the concept of the paranormal (The Marshall House is perfect for this).
Would you dare to brave the night at one of these haunted Savannah hotels?
The ghost of Anne awaits visitors to the 17Hundred90 Inn. She is just one of the two famous ghosts which seem to haunt this Inn, Restaurant and Bar. If you’re feeling adventurous stay in Room 204, the room where Anne’s ghost has been seen the most. Even the dining area has a few ghost, including a former cook who was into Voodoo.
One of the most beautiful Bed and Breakfasts in all of Savannah, the Hamilton-Turner Inn may also be one of the most haunted. For many years, people staying at the Hamilton-Turner Inn have reported having paranormal encounters with the ghosts of the Hamilton-Turner Inn.

Sitting on Columbia Square is the awe-inspiring Kehoe House. The Kehoe House is one of the most beautiful Bed and Breakfasts in the south..and if you believe the guests and staff at the Kehoe House, one of the most haunted. More than a few guests have awoken in the middle of the night to see a ghost standing at the end of their bed.
The Foley House Inn is widely known as one of Savannah's most haunted places to stay. It also happens to be one of the favorite stops on a few of our ghost tours. However, when you look at the real history, it doesn't always line up with the ghost stories being told about the Foley House.
No where else in Savannah, Georgia, can you experience such a blend of Southern Hospitality and the paranormal. With a history that dates back to 1812, The Olde Harbour Inn is one of the longest-running sites which has been consistently used in the city.
But this stately boutique hotel is also quite well known for Hank, its grouchy (and sometimes joker) of a ghost. Stay in Room 405 or 406 to experience the paranormal phenomena yourself.
