The Mansion on Forsyth Park has new owners, ushering in a reimagined vision for the luxury hotel located at 700 Drayton Street.
The hotel opened in 2005 after a redesign and features 126 guest rooms and suites, restaurants, a mixology lounge and a curated collection of paintings, sculptures and jewelry.

With the acquisition of the hotel by Left Lane, the firm said the property will undergo a multi-million-dollar renovation and expansion. Upon completion, the hotel will feature 149 guest rooms, a main restaurant, club bar and lounge, pool restaurant and bar, lobby bar, as well as multiple event spaces, spa, retail spaces and more.
"The Mansion on Forsyth Park is one of Savannah’s most treasured and historic hotels and Left Lane is committed to community engagement through placemaking and adaptive reuse of iconic historic properties," the firm said to the Savannah Morning News.
Where were those properties?: City of Savannah sold $18 million in office space in 2018.
"Left Lane specializes in the acquisition and transformation of hotels that share a common thread of textured histories and progressive cultural landscapes and looks forward to honoring the property’s rich past while bringing new experiences to the city of Savannah."
