The Jules Savannah Review

the jules savannah review

Situated across from Chippewa Square in the heart of Savannah, you’ll find a stunning historic building with two sets of black double doors, stairs that seem like they go on forever, and a facade you could only dream of. The abandoned mansion turned luxury B&B, this historic building has been restored to its former glory and is now the home of The Jules Savannah. Owned and managed by a husband-wife duo, staying at The Jules is an experience like any other and I cannot recommend staying in one of their six suites enough. 

The Jules Savannah Review

The Property

A great location, spacious accommodations, stunning design, and access to laundry, can you ask for anything more when looking for a place to stay while traveling? 

While every stay at The Jules is special, the history of the property makes the experience even more special. Originally built in 1870 by Julius Koox, grocer and liquor dealer, as a home for him and his family when they first came to America. Throughout the renovation process, the now owners wanted to ensure that the property was restored to its former glory so they worked alongside the National Park Service and the State of Georgia and the project was an approved Historic Preservation Project.

The name “The Jules” is a nod to Julius Koox and the property today features six luxury suites, all named after various jewels (amber, diamond, jade, opal, pearl, and sapphire). As a historic building, there were guidelines that had to be followed during the renovation

The Rooms

Each suite features gourmet kitchens, luxurious bathrooms, walk-in showers, large living spaces, and modern amenities including laundry access. And although the building is old, there is elevator access to each floor and suite.

During my stay at The Jules, I stayed in the Sapphire Suite, a stunning one-bedroom, one-bath suite with ample room for a girl’s weekend, getting ready for a wedding, or a romantic weekend away with your partner. When entering the Sapphire Suite, you immediately walk into the living space with a kitchen/dining room to the left and the primary bedroom to the right.

One of my favorite parts about traveling is sleeping in hotel beds. They’re always so comfortable and I always get such a good night’s sleep at the Jules, I got the best night’s sleep the entire time I was there. The mattress was so comfortable, the pillows were like giant marshmallows, and the sheets… don’t even get me started! They were high thread count HEAVEN.

The bathroom in the Sapphire Suite is off of the primary bedroom and featured a double vanity (with a hair dryer!) and a walk-in shower. I’ve been working on my packing over the years and try to use hotel toiletries whenever possible and was pleased to see C.O. Bigelow products in the bathroom; they’re one of my favorites!

In the living space, there is a darling swivel chair (perfect for reading!), a fireplace with a TV, and the velvet couch of my dreams. During my stay, I spent a lot of time in this space getting work done, relaxing after exploring everything Savannah has to offer, and planning my next visit to the historic city.

When traveling, it’s always so convenient to eat out but when you have access to a kitchen, it’s nice to be able to quickly cook up a home-cooked meal or at the very least, heat up leftovers. At The Jules, each suite has a full kitchen making your stays even easier, especially if you’re traveling with kids or a group of friends! I love that the kitchen was stocked with complimentary Fiji water and had a full-sized dining table to eat at.

The Location

By this point, you understand how amazing The Jules is but it gets better. Located in downtown Savannah, The Jules is in the perfect location for exploring everything Savannah has to offer. Right around the corner from The Jules, you can grab a quick lunch at Hitch (my favorite!) or Zunzi’s before experiencing Chippewa Square (where Forrest Gump was filmed!) and heading out on a tour of the historic city. The Jules is also a quick walk from Forsyth Park, the Savannah River, and Bonaventure Cemetery.
