|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Not familiar with Game of Thrones? No problem: In the tv show, The Tower of the Hand (SVR-00345) has these very cool apartments that all the best characters get to stay in - Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, Charles Dance. We know...these are actors, not characters, but just trust us on this. You *want* to be cool like these guys!
What do we mean by high ceilings? How does 18 feet grab ya? And oh god, the crown molding. It's just so ... I don't know .. Historic! Oh, and hardwood floors *all day*, y'all. Again, very much an Historic Savannah thing. (See how we used 'an' before the word 'historic'? That's how you know we're educated, or maybe from ye olden times. Hard to tell which.)
Did we mention the spaciousness? We are talking about maximally commodious, especially for something in Historic Downtown. The eat-in kitchen is large, with seating for up to 7. Each of the three bedrooms has its own theme - Superheroes, Star Wars, and Video Games - complete with thematically appropriate decor to enhance your vacation experience. The Superheroes bedroom has one queen bed and one full bed, the Star Wars bedroom has one queen-sized bed, and the Video Games bedroom has one full and one twin. So, the apartment can sleep as many as ten people, if you really like each other and include the couch and love seat in the living room.
The bathroom has both a walk-in shower and a claw-foot tub. Just like Game of Thrones, y'all! Or Lord of the Rings. Or Harry Potter. Really, any medieval or old-fashioned work of fiction will do. The living room has plenty of seating and a flat-screen television with Roku (so, you get access to your Hulu, Netflix, etc.). There is a dishwasher in the kitchen and a washer & dryer in the hallway closet. So, basically, we've got you covered from an amenities standpoint.
The apartment door has a wifi-enabled combination lock, and we send you the combination the day before you check in. So, you can show up any time you like without the need to get keys from us (or hoping we send them to you in the mail in sufficient time) and you can check out without having to drop them off. Plus, everyone in your party can have the 'key' as long as you decide to share the combination with them. Ain't technology grand?!?
The apartment has an outdoor deck that is covered in Confederate Jasmine and looks out over a bucolic garden with a brick path running through it. It's essentially a hidden garden in the middle of Historic Downtown Savannah. If you check out an online map service that rhymes with bugle you can see the lush foliage and trees behind the building right next to the gravel parking area.
And we haven't even gotten to the coolest part about The Tower of the Hand. It's located at The Guild Hall! What is The Guild Hall, you ask? It's a place where creative people - coders, makers, designers, gamers, performers, and storytellers - can get together, have fun, learn new skills, or just relax. Sort of like a clubhouse for creative people. Check out our website at http://theguildhall.com. We like to think of it as Nerdvana, but not everyone is into the whole 'nerd' label. And, hey, that's cool.
No, but seriously, there is no place like this anywhere else. The Arena is where people can play video and computer games, board games, table-top RPGs, and CCGs like Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, and My Little Pony. Just a few feet away from Stark Tower is our own gamer pub, The Chromatic Dragon, where you can eat delicious food, quaff frosty beverages, and play boardgames or video games in a relaxed nerd-pub environment.
When you stay as a guest in the Tower of the Hand, you get free memberships for up to six people for the duration of your visit. Each free membership comes with access to all four buildings and hours of free gaming time. And, if needed, you can purchase additional memberships for the rest of your party at a discounted price. Because we love you.
We are happy to leave you alone to enjoy your stay, but your stay with us also makes you a temporary member of The Guild Hall. So, if you are 18 or older and want to play games or just hang out, we are always around from noon every day until 11 pm Sunday - Wednesday and into the wee hours (at least 2 am) Thursday - Saturday.
Historic Downtown is freakin' awesome!
Obviously, you don't have to enjoy The Guild Hall to stay at The Tower of the Hand. The apartment is pretty freakin' great all on its own, within walking distance to Forsyth Park and all of Historic Downtown. There are too many museums, historic buildings, art galleries, antique shops, and other interesting places to mention. Savannah is chock full of that stuff!
And The Tower of the Hand is just a few blocks from Old Town Trolley Tours, so you can do all the sightseeing you like!
The Tower of the Hand is located within walking distance of several great restaurants, including Crystal Beer Parlor (a Savannah Institution for 100 years), The Distillery (a delightful emporium of craft beers and great food), Rancho Alegre (the best Cuban restaurant in Savannah), Savannah Coffee Roasters (coffee so good you'll swoon and dishes like quiche, pot pie, and sandwiches of the gods) and best of all The Chromatic Dragon, The Guild Hall's very own gamer pub! And that's just a few items within a four block radius. This is Historic Downtown Savannah, so you have extended walkable access to scores of restaurants.
Full refund (minus fees) for cancellations one month or more before your stay. If your cancellation is from one week - one month before your stay, we will offer credit for a rebooking. Cancellations for one week or less before your stay will be taken on a case-by-case basis.
Please note that weekend rentals require a minimum two-night stay.

We had a great time staying at the gamer retreat for our bachelorette party of 9. It was a lot larger in person than we expected from the pictures. Plenty of room for us all to have our own space. We were very thankful for all the mirrors on the back of the doors so we could all get ready at the same time. We were worried about the location not being close enough to all the popular restaurants and bars but it was perfect and a nice walk to get to see everything. Would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Savannah!
I rented this place for a Bachelorette party of 9, and it was perfect. Just enough space for everyone to hang out, everyone had a comfortable place to stay, and it was a short Uber ride to downtown.
Highly recommend this location for larger parties looking for a place to stay in the Savannah area.
I would def recommend this place to anyone looking for somewhere in Savannah. I have traveled there a good amount of times and I enjoyed this property the most by far!
This condo is in a great location and very clean! Only a $6 uber ride to river st! Accommodated all our needs perfectly
I rented this apartment for a large group for a bachelorette party. The apartment was perfect - it's huge! It has high ceilings and the rooms are all very large - perfect for a big group. Everything was spotlessly clean, plenty of towels, and bed linens, and there's great outdoor space complete with tables and chairs for at least 10 people.
The apartment is close to a grocery store and to a beautiful park - it's about a 20 minute walk to the bars downtown or a quick Uber ride.
I would highly recommend staying here!!
I went for a girls weekend and it was grea . The house was clean and the theme was so cool. Nice porch to sit outside and close to downtown. A few stores in walking distance but a cab to river street was only $6-8.
The apartment is located on the campus of The Guild Hall, Savannah's exclusive destination for gamers, makers, designers, coders, performers and storytellers. So many activities to choose from: (1) Play board games, video games or table-top RPGs at The Arena; (2) Design and create anything you can imagine in our workshop at The Forge with our 3D printer, lathe, router and more; (3) Attend a music or comedy show in the theater at The Forge; (4) Sign up for a class or workshop to learn a new skill or try a new hobby; (5) Use our PC and Mac lab to play games, get work done, or just surf the Internet; (6) Get some delicious food and drinks at The Chromatic Dragon, our gamer pub; and so many more activities!
