BETHESDA, Md.—The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International, announced with its partner Flank, a New York City-based design and development firm, that Perry Lane Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Savannah is now open. Nestled among ardent squares in the heart of the city’s Historic District, Perry Lane Hotel is The Luxury Collection’s first hotel in Savannah, offering travelers a contemporary luxury experience in a destination steeped in rich history.
“The opening of Perry Lane Hotel is a significant milestone for The Luxury Collection, marking the brand’s debut in Savannah and showcasing our commitment to delivering authentic experiences to global explorers in the most coveted destinations in North America and around the world,” says Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, The Luxury Collection. “Perry Lane Hotel brings to life Savannah’s roots in an indigenous way, and we are delighted to become a part of this iconic city’s vibrant culture.”
The new Perry Lane Hotel is 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, worldly, and peculiar. Built to mirror the aesthetic of Savannah’s traditional manor houses, The Luxury Collection’s Perry Lane Hotel balances a modern sophistication with the beautiful heritage and culture of Georgia’s first city. Under the interior design direction of Flank, Perry Lane Hotel reflects the culturally-rich destination of Savannah as a major port city in the 18th and 19th centuries and embodies the vibe of an authentic manor house.
“Throughout this exciting process we knew that Perry Lane Hotel was going to offer our guests a rich sense of place at every turn,” says Jon Kully, managing partner of Flank and owner of Perry Lane Hotel. “Now we open our doors, offering explorers and collectors a place to discover all that makes Savannah one of the most sought-after destinations in the country.”
Residential design elements and rich textures decorate the hotel’s 167 rooms and 12 suites, alongside a collection of maps, travel mementos, and antique décor. Oversized guestroom windows allow natural sunlight to illuminate lush fabrics and Frette Italian bed linens, leather headboards, and deeply hued walls adorned with artwork that varies from room to room.
“Our hotel is an irresistible destination for discovering the Southern warmth and worldly style of Savannah,” says Pritpal Singh, general manager of Perry Lane Hotel. “We are excited to introduce our guests to a city with incredible history, culture, and personality. Perry Lane Hotel is a visionary hotel for Savannah, where we hope locals and travelers will continue to return to time and again, collecting memories and experiences they will pass on to future generations.”
Brought to Savannah by Denver-based Sage Restaurant Group, the hotel’s on-site restaurant—The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market—is an all-day American brasserie with Southern-influenced cuisine with menu items celebrating the city’s storied roots. From fresh fish to wild foraged mushrooms, The Emporium’s Kitchen & Wine Market showcases locally-sourced ingredients and signature dishes such as Cocquilles St. Jacques, local Flounder en Papillote, Rabbit Ragout with house-made Pappardelle, and Fruits de Mer Tower. It also has a wine shop and market with gourmet sandwiches, artisanal cheeses, and charcuterie and is home to Bowerbird Coffee, a coffee shop by Sage Restaurant Group in partnership with Savannah-based Perc Coffee Roasters.
The Wayward is the hotel’s on-site bar that takes a modern approach to hand-crafted cocktails and features renegade art, music, and décor that’s both highbrow and lowbrow. The Wayward is adjacent to the hotel’s karaoke room and arcade.
Peregrin, the all-weather rooftop bar at Perry Lane Hotel, has views of the cityscape, lawn games, premium cocktails, and a curated wine list.
Perry Lane Hotel offers 8,900 square feet of indoor and outdoor event spaces. Set atop the hotel, the glass-enclosed ballroom has 3,000 square feet of space and views of Savannah. Along with its outdoor terrace, it can host events for up to 200 people. Perry Lane Hotel’s naturally lit meeting spaces and private dining options can be customized for a wide range of meetings and events, from educational seminars to roundtable discussions.
“At Perry Lane Hotel, we’re offering our guests a one-of-a-kind experience,” says Singh. “More than a supremely comfortable stay, we offer service and atmosphere that truly considers and anticipates guests’ needs. More than stylish accommodations and ideal location, we are an intimate representation of this beautiful city and its many, many stories.”
