One of Savannah’s many
quiet, tree-lined squares

This city, made famous by John Berendt’s novel,Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, offers the 403-room Westin Savannah Harbor Resort, which hosts up to 1,400 for events and has an excellent golf course. The resort is on Hutchinson Island, next to the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center.
    In addition, the 347-room Hyatt Regency Savannah will open a ballroom and a restaurant next month, while in spring, the 126-room Mansion on Forsyth Park debuts with a spa, meeting space and a culinary school.
    Gourmands must not miss the crispy scored flounder in apricot-shallot sauce at the elegant Olde Pink House on one of Savannah’s beautiful leafy squares.
