“Charming boutique hotel in the historic district”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2011

My wife and I recently spent a long weekend in Savannah, and we chose to stay at the Avia. The hotel was well-located in the historic district, with parking close by in the Whitaker parking garage ($16 per day). We chose a one-bedroom suite, which featured a balcony facing Ellis Square (great views), a big bathtub, and a well-furnished living area. Each night the Avia offers warm cookies to its patrons, which is a nice touch. The service is super-friendly. My only gripes are the following: if your room is facing Ellis Square, it can get a bit noisy on Friday and Saturday nights. And, the hotel breakfast is underwhelming. Put it in the category of day-of-departure-don't-have-time-to-go-out breakfast. Otherwise, this is a delightful and charming hotel that I would readily visit again the next time I'm back in Savannah.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for choosing AVIA for your recent get away. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and the location was perfect.

Ellis Square can become quite lively on the weekends. I do apologize you were bothered by the noise. We would have been happy to move your room had you let us know. Just remind us on your next visit and we will be sure to reserve a room for you away from the square.

Although the breakfast is a buffet, we do offer several options from fruits and yogurts to chef-prepared eggs, crepes suzette, pancakes, waffles, shrimp and grits and other local signatures as well as a barista bar.

We do hope we have the opportunity to host you the next time you are in Savannah!

In hospitality,
Pedro Perez, General Manager

This was our first stay here, and we were quite impressed. Everything top-notch, staff very friendly, great location in historic district.
The only issue was their limited dinner options. Served in the bar area, the menu consisted of cheese board options, and tapa-type choices--no normal, American full service dinners. We thought this may please Europeans but less so for Americans. We spent our dinner dollars elsewhere, and in Savannah there are MANY choices.
Other than this, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for choosing AVIA. We are delighted you were impressed with AVIA and enjoyed your stay.

In the evening, the AVIA Kitchen menu is mainly small plates that are easily shared or combined to create the ideal a la carte meal. If you are wanting more of a standard dinner, there is a wonderful selection of restaurants within walking distance.

We thank you for staying with us and hope to see you again!

Pedro Perez, General Manager

My husband & I stayed at this hotel in early January. All the staff is most accomodating, courteous and eager to please. The rooms are fabulous with luxury amenities galore and the central location to River Walk is beyond compare. Make sure you book your dinner reservations through the front desk. You will probably be treated to a nice surprise!

Let me make clear that we absolutely loved this hotel! I would come back here in a second.

The good: There are so many great things about this hotel it would be hard to list them all so I'll point out the highlights. The location is arguably the best in the city, very easy walk to everything. The rooms were spotlessly clean and wonderfully appointed. The service was the high point, every single person was beyond friendly and you could tell the staff really wants your stay to be wonderful. Although everyone was great the young lady who made our crepes suzette on Sunday morning went above and beyond, even writing down her recipe for the crepes and bringing it to us, wish I could remember her name. Parking is convienently located under the hotel in a garage. I you are staying for two nights go to the visitor center and get a 48 hr. visitors pass for 12 dollars vs. $16.00/day if you pay at the garage and $20.00/day if you valet. Oh yea, when we checked in we were informed that we had been given a complimentary room upgrade, score!

The bad: The coffee maker was dismal and the lack of a sink in the kitchen area made coffee making quite a chore. A minor inconvenience, but if you want to be a top class hotel these things matter.

The ugly: This is the only point which was really irritating to me (not just here everywhere). The mini bar! I know I can hear the groans, why do hotels insist on making such an issue out of the mini bar, just get rid of the damn things! This was one of those sensor type ones where if you pick it up you get charged for it. Not only in the little refrigerator but also on the counter there was a little shelf of snacks just sitting out in the open. I was afraid the whole time that I was going to accidentally knock something off and presto bingo I just bought a $24 can of peanuts. Are hotels so hard up for cash that they have to resort to this kind of intimidation to make a buck? OK rant over.

In summation, the AVIA was almost perfect!

Dear Valued Guest,

It is wonderful to read that you absolutely loved your stay at AVIA! Thank you for recognizing the staff. As they work hard to make sure every guest has a memorable stay and it sounds as though they succeeded.

Although the mini-bar can be source of frustration, it is necessary in order to offer our guests a source for snacks or beverages in the room. Please know that we understand that items can be knocked off the sensors. If you were charged for an item you did not consume, just let us know and we will remove from your bill.

Thank you for choosing AVIA and we look forward to hosting you again.

In hospitality,
Pedro Perez, General Manager

Great staff...very helpful. Rooms were quiet...and the mattress was like a cloud. Food was very good. All in all, this is a great hotel for a reasonable price, providing exceptional value. Will be back.

This is the best hotel in Savannah! Fantastic location, friendly staff, modern style and CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN! My family and I are very hard to please when it comes to a hotel and we felt very comfortable here. The staff were nothing less than amazing, always helpful and gave great advice. The location could not be beat, close to the river and market square. All other hotels in Savannah do not compare to the Avia. Thank you Avia for being the best hotel we have ever stayed in.
