Mansion on Forsyth Park
A luxury stay where you can attend a cooking school before taking a run in a lovely, historic park.
A Kessler Collection hotel, this 18,000-square-foot Romanesque mansion, with its rounded arches and turrets, was built in 1888 facing fashionable Forsyth Park. Later serving as a funeral home and a synagogue, it opened in 2005 as a boutique hotel after being expanded with an architecturally sympathetic addition. The renovation preserved original details, including oak millwork, mahogany and teak paneling, hardwood floors and a grand staircase. In the adjacent four-story addition guests will find a spa, meeting space and an art gallery with more than 400 pieces of original modern European and American artwork. The hotel restaurant, 700 Drayton, is located in the original structure, which also houses a cooking school and a private dining room. Comfort and luxury of a superior order define the 126 guest rooms and sixteen suites, including high ceilings, oversized soaking tubs, pillow-top mattresses with down comforters and pillows, faux-mink pillow shams, Bose CD radios and flat-screen TVs. While one could remain comfortably within the walls of this elegant sanctuary, the location invites meandering --- through the Victorian district above Forsyth Park and along Drayton Street into the heart of the Historic District. For those who want to go farther afield, a hotel vehicle is at the ready. Pets are welcome ($100 nonrefundable fee for pets weighing 70 pounds or less).
