About the Armstrongs
Monique and William Armstrong, owners of the Historic Armstrong Inns, have been serving guests in their collection of restored Historic District homes since 2001. After working as the Lead Scenic artist on set of The Legend of Bagger Vance, William fell in love with Savannah and called Monique down from New York. "Choose a home," he said. "We are staying." And so they did.
Monique and William purchased their current residence, which serves as the Registration Office for the inns and sits at 554 East Taylor Street. Registered with the Savannah Historic District and the National Register of Historic Places, the stunning 19th century home was designed by Monique herself after purchasing what she describes as "just a shell". William's New York-Nantucket artwork and Low Country paintings now pepper the walls with colorful scenes and still-lifes.
According to Monique, the best part about owning The Armstrong Inns is "sharing my passion for the Low Country and of beautiful Historic Savannah". During her 17 years working with the United Nations, Monique discovered her love for people, interacting with people from all over the world. The inns, she says, allow her to continue serving people from all over in the comfort and luxury of her homes.
