Mansion on Forsyth Park, Savannah, Georgia $$$$
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:A splashy newcomer in staid Savannah, the Mansion on Forsyth Park had tongues wagging the minute it opened. Its big-city-style restaurant, which gussies up Southern cooking (where else would you find grits-encrusted veal chops?), is in an 1888 mansion that was previously a funeral home. Next door, a brand-new building houses all 126 guest rooms, a small pool, a full spa, and hundreds of pieces from owner Richard Kessler's art collection. The art, like the decor, is a pastiche of styles, mediums, and colors: gold-and-black-print Louis XV–style chairs, teal curtains, and marble sculptures of nude bathers. Rooms are more subtle but still fun, with white baroque headboards and green crushed-velvet chaises. Yet for all this attention to bold design, the Mansion excels at old-fashioned hospitality: Staff are unfailingly polite and, most important, know where to find the best fried chicken in town. 2006 Hot List
