“WOW! Great hotel!”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

My husband and I had two free nights to use at a Marriott so we were going on vacation and picked this hotel to use it in. I am so glad we picked this hotel! We were given a room in the Snell (I think it was called that) Cottage. The room was spacious and nice. We did the free parking on the road and didn't have any problems with it. The best part---we walked every day to the areas we wanted to and didn't jump in the car once to go anywhere in town. You are so close to the visitor's center (the next block over) and you are about 10 minutes walking to the main area of Savannah. The breakfast is also REALLY good here. Plenty of food and very nice breakfast attendant. I definitely recommend this place and would stay here again in a second!

Thanks for choosing the Residence Inn by Marriott Savannah Downtown Historic District for your recent stay in Savannah. We enjoyed serving you! Thanks also for posting a review on TripAdvisor. We appreciate the nice comments.

As you mentioned our location is within walking distance of historic venues, restaurants, bars and shopping. Guests also have access to the complimentary DOT shuttle which picks up at our front door every 30 minutes. You can enjoy your stay without ever having to get in your car. All this in one of the most quiet areas in downtown.

We hope that you will be our guest again very soon! Thanks again for your feedback.

I was very impressed by the Residence Inn. The rooms were updated, spacious, and clean. The lobby and hallways were in perfect condition as well, even more so than some of the high end hotels I have stayed in. They had a very extensive complimentary breakfast spread, and a free happy hour each night. The hotel is not in center of it all like the Bohemian, Andaz, or Hyatt, but you are only a few minutes walk from the main avenues that provide a scenic stroll to the River.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of the Residence inn by Marriott Savannah Historic District. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Savannah. I appreciate the kind comments about our staff. I will be sure to pass your feedback along to everyone on our team.

While the Residence Inn is not located on the major arteries which run through the Historic District, we are conveniently located next to the Savannah Visitors Center and steps away from many restaurants, bars and historic venues which are a must see while in Savannah. The city of Savannah operates a fare free shuttle which picks up our guests at our front door and will shuttle you throughout the historic district free of charge. This service is an excellent option to driving as parking can be a challange downtown.

Thanks again for staying with us. i hope that when you return you will be our guest and enjoy all the wonderful amenites our hotel has to offer. Whether it be a dip in the pool, a cocktail by the firepit, or a night on the town, our staff is here and eager to make sure your stay is one you will remember!

Sincerely,

Donnie Morgan
General Manager

Went on a 4 day weekend with my 2 sisters. We got a 2 bedroom suite that was perfect! It was very spacious - had 2 full bathrooms, a full kitchen and a "family room". The beds were comfortable and the location was very quiet. The hotel is located just across the street from the visitor's center and is within walking distance to everything in the historic district. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with directions, and the breakfast buffet was the best any of us had ever had at a hotel! We would definitely recommend this hotel and we would go back in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Pick a suite!

Everyone was warm and helpful , the rooms were great. The problem was that we were a few blocks away from everything we wanted to see. You have to cross Martin Luther king highway,which had cross walks and lights but still it was kind of a hike. Ttere is a marriot courtyard that was a little closer,at had we known,we would have chosen. So really just for convince and nothing else. We had a car which we didn't think we would use during our stay, but ended up using every day.

Room Tip: People that worked there were extremely nice! I don't think it Matt I don't think it matt...

We drove from Hilton Head Island to Savannah following a wedding. Residence Inn is very close to Interstate 16 and easy to locate in the Historic District on Charlton Street. It is directly across the street from one of the Welcome Centers and depot for tour buses. We chose Residence Inn by Marriott after reading other trip advisor reviews and to earn additional points in Southwest Airlines partners program. We arrived after 9 pm and pulled our car up to the door. The hotel valet was most accomodating as we had not yet eaten dinner and wanted to check in and then grab something to eat. He told us a Wendy's was close by and open late. The front desk staff greeted us and quickly checked us into our awesome 1 bedroom suite with 1 king bed and sofabed (Room 102 which faced MLK Blvd, I think) for our 3 nights. The room was better than shown on the internet. It had a full kitchen area (full size refrig., stove, microwave, coffee maker, silverware, pots, pans, dishes, glasses, etc.) with a dining table with two chairs. The living room area had a sofabed and was spacious. The office area had a desk, chair and electrical outlet. The bathroom had a separate vanity area from the tub/shower toilet. The bedroom (with large screen tv) was spacious and the pillows and bed were excellent. The suite included absolutely everything a short/long term guest could need. The next morning, we went to their complimentary breakfast. The area has lots of seating and lots of choices to eat/drink. On this day, QA from Marriott was there for an audit. You could sense how much the employees wanted a good review and seemed a little nervous but so very friendly and caring to their guests. There is a seating area with coaches with a big table which would be very nice if you were waiting for a group to meet and chat and it was close to their small bar area. Outside seating was also available for guests with a fireplace and their pool. Note: Monday thru Thursday there is an evening social (light drinks and snacks) which is also complimentary. The desk staff had a book of various restaurants to review. They recommended both the Olde Pink House and Planters Tavern and Giribaldi's (among others). We enjoyed both restaurants and will review them separately. We also took the "on off" Old Savannah tour (hotel gave us $2 discount coupon) and the 1 hour Savannah Riverboat narrated tour. The one thing we would like to emphasize was every staff member was really friendly, happy and wanting to serve their guests. We travel frequently and this staff wins the award for "the best". It should be noted that this property is at west edge end of the historic district and about one mile from the river. We did walk all the squares and to/from restaurants and river. We took a pedicab ($15) and cab ($5) back from restaurants due to rain. We have not stayed at a Residence Inn before but definitely will look for them on our future travels. The Property Manager and his staff at this hotel should know how much their guests appreciate the staff's work ethic and friendliness.

I spent almost three months here. A large percentage of the guest are long term guest. The hotel is close to the downtown night life but just far enough away that the neighborhood is quite. Within a short walk there are some nice dining options. Just ask the staff and they will make sure you have options that suit your taste.

The hotel is one of the new style Residence Inn's but what makes this hotel is the staff. They do make you feel like family. Looking forward to going back next time I am in the area.

I stayed one night only because we changed plans and came early. What a great little place. It's not a fancy B&B but the breakfast was still good. They don't have dinner but the brew pub across the street was fun. Their rooms are predictable but that's the beauty of Residence Inn. I know what I;m getting. It was an excellent value for our money and the staff showed great care for us. Yes, I would stay here again and probably will.
