Guests Receive Commemorative Champagne
Flutes and Champagne with Cordials: Nov 4-30
One-hundred and sixty-five years ago, in November of 1847, Joseph Thompson completed the construction on his family's Jones Street home, now known as The Eliza Thompson House. This beautiful property became the first house built on Jones Street in historic downtown Savannah. Today, the home is an authentic 25-room historic inn, and you're invited to join us as we commemorate the building's 165 years.
Join Us in Celebration!
To mark this special occasion, each guest who stays with us November 4 through November 30 will receive limited-edition anniversary champagne flute, and will enjoy chilled champagne during our cordial hour. If you haven't yet made your reservations for a Savannah visit this Fall, consider The Eliza Thompson House November 4-30 and share a champagne toast with the oldest house on Jones Street!
The History of the House
In 1847, this house was built on Jones Street by Joseph Thompson, a cotton broker and real estate investor, for his wife, Eliza and their seven children. It was one of the finest homes in Savannah, and the location of many grand parties and celebrations. Over the years, the home has been a doctor’s office, a private residence and a dentist’s office. It was converted to an Inn in 1977. In the 1980s, the Carriage House, a thirteen-room structure surrounding the courtyard was constructed. In 1995, more improvements came when a 40-foot container of antiques was brought back from England to furnish the Inn. Today, the Inn continues to be restored and enhanced. In 2009, stucco on the walls surrounding the fireplace was removed, revealing a beautiful, original mahogany wall and mantle. Today, the historic inn enjoys a reputation as one of the top 10 hotels to enjoy in Savannah, according to guests on TripAdvisor.
