Top-rated Savannah B&Bs — Green Palm Inn and Zeigler House Inn — will be seen in Better Homes and Garden, Family Circle, Ladies Home Journal and Everyday with Rachael Ray magazines in May 2014

SAVANNAH Georgia (March 15, 2014) — A new branding piece — “Two Stars in Savannah” — comes from two top-rated bed and breakfast inns who have earned top-pick spots in Savannah, Georgia USA tourism.

Green Palm Inn and Zeigler House Inn are taking part in State of Georgia tourism promotions in the May 2014 issues of Better Homes and Garden, Ladies Home Journal, Everyday with Rachael Ray, and Family Circle magazines!

The bed and breakfasts’ new found national reach began last year when each B&B was featured on Wheel of Fortune. 

Are the two small historic inns following the admonition of Horace — “Begin, be bold, and venture to be wise.”?

Amid millions of Savannah visitors annually, the two family- and privately-owned historic inns continually rise as ‘two stars’, hosting hundreds of Savannah leisure and business travelers each year. They are among 40+ historic bed and breakfasts in the National Landmark Historic District.

Brand strategist Sandy Traub gives insights into the success of the two small lodging businesses.

“Jackie Heinz (Zeigler House Inn) and Diane McCray (Green Palm Inn) are two devoted innkeepers who work with a passion to preemptively and responsively please their guests, daily.  If they could, these gals would simply continue to do great work, pace-setting with their individual styles of hospitality in Savannah, and not seek the limelight.  However, to be competitive, boldness is required.  New large hotels with bigger marketing budgets are big competition for the small inns. Downtown Savannah vacation rentals are creeping faster into the lodging mix with new challenges.”

“We all shine on…like the moon and the stars and the sun…we all shine on…come on and on and on…” ― John Lennon

“Believing it is the historic inns that share the soul of historic Savannah’s glory, stories and style — past and present — these two inn owners and their businesses are claiming their earned positions as stars in Savannah tourism.  To be in this national magazine promotion is costly for their small B&Bs. But they’re brave, and I’m thrilled that they are stepping up to be in the spotlight more.”

The “Two Stars in Savannah” spot can be found in the Georgia Tourism promotion, running in the four Meredith publications in the May 2014 issues.  The ad design is by Kelly Applegate, Applegate Design based in Savannah, Georgia.

Innkeeper/co-owner Diane McCray touts Green Palm Inn (circa 1897) as “The Softer Side of Savannah”. Originally sea captain cottages, the four-room Gingerbread Classic B&B shares cottage-inn comforts in the quiet of Greene Square’s residential neighborhood in the National Landmark Historic District. Fodor’s guide calls Green Palm Inn a “pleasing little discovery” and “a little gem of an inn”. BedandBreakfast.com named the cottage B&B a top pick for a holiday trip – “Top 10 B&Bs for the Holidays, 2011″.

A wondrous model of Savannah’s world-famous historic restoration, the stately Zeigler House Inn (circa 1858) is a Salzberger lumber merchant’s mansion transformed to seven lodging suites and rooms. The caterer-turned-innkeeper, Jackie Heinz, serves in-room breakfasts, home baked pastries worthy of a French pâtisserie storefront, plus en vogue bed and breakfast comforts and southern hospitality.
