|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
The Dragon's Lair is a luxury apartment located on the campus of The Guild Hall in the southwest corner of Savannah's Historic District. It is mere blocks from Forsyth Park and walking distance to pretty much anywhere you want to go downtown. (SVR-00342)
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 kitchen has plenty of counter space for prep and cabinets for storage, and the separate dining room has seating for six. Each of the three bedrooms has its own theme - Board Games, Harry Potter, and Mario - complete with thematically appropriate decor to enhance your vacation experience. The Board Games bedroom has three twin beds, the Harry Potter bedroom has one queen-sized bed and a small pull-out chair, and the Mario bedroom has one queen and one full bed. The living room has full- and queen-size sleeper sofas and a large sectional sofa that can sleep one or two.
There are two large full bathrooms on the top floor and the bottom floor has a half bath. The living room has plenty of seating and a flat-screen smart television with Roku (so, you get access to your Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, etc.). There is a dishwasher in the kitchen and a washer & dryer in the top floor 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 two weeks 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?!?
And we haven't even gotten to the coolest part about The Dragon's Lair. 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 the guild hall dot com (or search for us on bugle, because it's fun to pronounce it like that...like gewgle). 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. A true guest favorite is our gamer pub, The Chromatic Dragon, and GUESS WHAT? It is right downstairs from The Dragon's Lair. Talk about convenient!
When you stay as a guest in The Dragon's Lair, 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.

The house was perfect for our bachelor party. The beds were comfortable and the uber' to river street were less than $10. The campus it sits on has some great options for food and drink. Anna was super responsive and answered any questions we had (even if they were included on the check in sheet). Had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to go back.
A group of 14 (Girl Scouts and their moms) stayed at the Dragon's Lair on July 29-31. The location was just outside the historic district, so very convenient for our sightseeing plans. The apartment was very spacious and there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out between the bedrooms and the couches. The apartment gaming decor was cute and definitely appealed to our group of 11 year old girls. Throughout the whole process of reserving and staying at the Dragon's Lair, the owner was always very responsive. So why just two stars?? The apartment was dirty for our standards. The floors turned the bottom of our feet black (and I have a picture of my socks to prove it); lots of dust and dirt underneath the beds which is very noticeable when you have girls on the floor with sleeping bags and air mattresses; lots of dirt and hair found in the couches...again very noticeable when you're using a pullout couch for sleeping and need to remove the cushions! The apartment really needs a good professional cleaning to bring it up to par. The apartment is located above a pub which is open till 2 AM. Our first night there, the loud music and loud voices did not stop until 6 AM the next morning...so little sleep the first night. One of the moms actually recorded the audio on her phone to document the times of this craziness. We later found out an adjoining tenant was to blame for all of the late night noise...very unfortunate for us! The second night was better. And finally, the apartment's two air conditioning units have problems. During both nights of our stay, the a/c froze up and someone had to come out to drain the a/c pans. After being out all day sightseeing with a group, the last thing I wanted to deal with at 11/12 PM at night was a faulty a/c. Granted, it was a very hot summer but it did not seem like this was a new problem - the two employees who came out to correct the problem knew exactly what to do so I'm sure this is not the first time this has happened. New a/c units appear to be in order here. Again, the owner was responsive to the a/c problems but overall our group was not happy due to the lack of cleanliness and loud music/voices the first night. It was a quick weekend trip for our group and we all really enjoyed the Girl Scout history and sights of Savannah...I just wish our accommodations had turned out a little bit better for us!
We had a group of ten and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Plenty of space and walking location to downtown. The Chromatic Dragon being right downstairs was an added plus. The only issues we had were minimal lighting in the kitchen and we had to sweep the floor when we got there. But other than that, we enjoyed our stay completely.
I was very pleased with both the property and the staff. When we parked incorrectly, they politely asked us to correct it, which we did.
My only complaint was that I thought that the unit had enough beds for how many could stay, I didnt realize they ment pullout sofa beds. But it worked its self out.
Great spot for large group. We had twelve 13 year old Girl Scouts and four adults. Apartment was very spacious and easily accomodated our large group. Conveniently located to all major site seeing. Only complaint would be a housekeeping one, it was not as clean upon our arrivals as we all would have liked or expected.
We had 14 people in our group and it accommodated our large group well! The upstairs toilet leaks from the bottom and the downstairs was very cold even with the heat on so we had to double up on our layers. Those were the only two minor issues we had with the unit. it was clean and cozy! I will recommend it to future travelers.
