…when you visit a place, your hotel should feel like an extension of that place. It should blend like a front porch into a southern summer night. It should make you feel so connected to the city and so refreshed by its culture that you soon forget where the hotel walls begin and the city ends. It should feel like no walls at all. It should feel like coming home.~Sotherly Hotels
When I first moved to Georgia, I never thought it could feel like home. I spent 40 years in one home; my entire life was there, in that home, in South Carolina.
I had a very determined husband who knew I would eventually come to love Georgia as much as I loved my very precious South Carolina. We bought a beautiful home in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, he introduced me to spectacular restaurants, fabulous museums, and beautiful country. Soon, I learned how absolutely amazing Georgia truly was; he was right. I have come to dearly love Georgia.
Some of our best times have been spent taking downtown “staycations”. It’s a real treat to pack the bags for a weekend, drive an hour and be right in the middle of anything you ever wanted. Museums, history, fine dining, burger joints open at 2 am, I mean anything. My favorite part, is booking a room at our “home away from home”, The Georgian Terrace Hotel. We love everything about the Georgian Terrace from the incredible amount of history, to the gorgeous rooms, to the knowledgeable and courteous service, to the extraordinary menu and talented chef at Livingston’s, to the magical craft cocktails at Proof & Provision. It truly has felt like home.
Recently, it was announced The Georgian Terrace Hotel was purchased by Sotherly Hotels. They held a Sotherly Social to tour the newly renovated rooms, showcase their own brand of bourbon, Edgar’s Truth, and host a presentation to the Sotherly Foundation’s American veteran recipient.
Sotherly believes when you visit a place, your hotel should feel like an extension of that place. It should blend like a front porch into a southern summer night. It should make you feel so connected to the city and so refreshed by its culture that you soon forget where the hotel walls begin and the city ends. It should feel like no walls at all. It should feel like coming home.
You have achieved your goal. A stay at the Georgian Terrace is just like going home.
