#TRAVELINGTINK X ANDAZ SAVANNAH - SAVANNAH, GEORGIA
It’s hard not to fall in love with the beautiful southern charm of Savannah, Georgia. For a glamorous pup like me, it’s the perfect getaway. The streets of this elegant city are lined with heritage architecture and towering oak trees. It has a fantastic food and cultural scene. There are so many green parks to sniff, squirrels to chase, and beautiful shady streets to walk down. What’s not to love?
My human and I went for a trip to Savannah to soak up some of the warm, friendly vibe. We stayed at the Andaz Savannah Hotel, an ultra-modern boutique hotel located in the heart of the Historic District. The hotel captures some of the timeless elegance of Savannah, yet the décor is very sleek, modern and stylish. When you walk into the bright, airy lobby it feels more like an intimate, boutique bed and breakfast than a hotel. Of course, I’m obsessed with unique hotels that have their own sense of style. One of the best things about this hotel is the location. It’s right on the corner of Ellis Square and only a short walk from City Market. In the evenings, the plaza comes to life with music and activity – not to mention the yummy smells of local restaurants. CHECK OUT THE VLOG BELOW!
When it comes to being dog friendly, the Andaz Savannah really knows how to make a diva pup like me feel special. The staff greeted me with warm smiles and I felt right at home. My human and I received a welcome pack with lots of wonderful goodies – it’s the little things that make a difference! I had a cozy plush pet bed where I could curl up and admire the view over the rooftops of Savannah. I also got some toys to play with and other treats - I truly felt like a pampered pooch. No detail was overlooked, and the food was fantastic. It’s no secret that I love a glamorous breakfast in bed – and the yummy platter of waffles, pancakes and fresh fruit did not disappoint. It was definitely the way to start the day off right.
Although I could have spent the entire day lounging around the hotel and eating waffles, there’s so much to see and do in Savannah. My human and I took a stroll along the downtown Savannah River Walk and came across a riverboat called the Georgia Queen. (From one Queen to another, I was a big fan.) Other great sites we walked to were Forsythe Park & Fountain, Historic Jones Street and we even grabbed a foodie worthy brunch at The Collins Quarter.
We enjoyed chic cocktails at 22 Square Restaurant and Bar – the stylish bar located within the Andaz hotel. I also loved our visit to The Olde Pink House – an iconic Savannah restaurant. It was closed for renovation due to a fire, but I still got my insta pic. And of course, a trip to Savannah wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the famous Leopold’s Ice Cream. Known as the best ice cream in the USA, the creamy cold sweetness was the perfect treat for my human and they even had a special “doggie ice cream” for me to enjoy!

The Southern US is known for its warm, friendly hospitality and Savannah is no exception. The staff at the Andaz Savannah were so kind and helpful and they made my human and I feel like VIPs – I miss them already! As we walked along the boulevards shaded by oak trees draped in Spanish moss, I knew I would have Georgia on my mind for a long time.
