The Maypole Group has breathed new life into a beautiful piece of history nestled in downtown Savannah, Georgia. The Drayton Hotel, one of the oldest buildings in Savannah, has been stunningly reborn thanks to the efforts of Raghav Sapra, founder of Maypole Group. His firm, which will also operate this lovely boutique hotel, spared no expense creating a luxury lodging that captures the soul of its historic community.
On the outside, this new 50 room hotel stays true to its 19th-century origins with traditional Victorian architecture. The restoration process carefully preserved the exterior design responsible for the rich nostalgia that is represented throughout the first city of Georgia. On the inside, Mr. Sapra and the Maypole Group added luxury features while still preserving the iconic southern charm. The result is a contemporary aesthetic touched with classic Savannah style.
Don’t let the 130-year-old architecture fool you, this hotel features all the modern amenities guests want. In addition to luxurious rooms and suites, there is also a brasserie, coffee bar, downstairs cocktail lounge, and a breathtaking rooftop experience with 360 views of the Savannah River and cityscape. Mr. Sapra paid special attention to detail with custom furniture in almost every room and antiques or found objects accented throughout.
The Drayton’s restaurant, named St. Neo’s, after the patron saint of fish, will be a seafood brasserie and oyster bar. It will showcase fresh local seafood cooked to mimic the flavors of the old south. The ground floor coffee bar features freshly baked pastries and premium coffee available for guests to enjoy in the newly decorated lobby or on the go. The beautiful rooftop offers unmatched views of Savannah and picturesque sunsets– a perfect backdrop for evening cocktails. It also features several private and semi-private areas that are perfect for private events.
Rooms start off around $259 a night depending on the time of stay and room type. Reservations are available on The Drayton Hotel website.
