“Hip hotel, great location, annoying designer flaws.”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

My husband and I stayed here in a river front larger king size room for two nights, which I highly recommend upgrading to. Room was large and had wonderful alcove with heavenly leather lounger where you can watch ships sail down the river. Bedroom and hotel Decor is dark and may not be to everyone's liking. The hotel is without a doubt the best on the river front but the hotel's designers/interior decorators had obviously never sleep here, which resulted in a number of annoying problems, such as no bedside table on one side of bed, problematic light switches, the inability to open any windows, no hooks to hang clothes in bathroom, a lack of drawers for clothes and toilet door and shower door which are problematic on opening when there are bath mats on floor. There is no mini fridge but hotel will provide one on request. There is a large size closet and work desk without drawers. We had constant problems with Wi Fi and were told by management that it was because our room was far from the elevators. We were offered another room but declined because the room was not available for 24 hours. On complaining the management was superb and tried to deal with most of our complaints very fast. They eventually fixed my husband's Wi Fi but could not fix mine. The roof top bar "Rocks" is very cool but the restaurant on the ground floor also called Rocks is very disappointing, expensive, dark and looks like a glorified cafeteria. Breakfast in Rocks is good but far too expensive for what it is. Give yourself plenty of time at the front office as the staff doubles as concierges and one has to wait a long time to be served. Nice bowl of fresh apples is available at front desk for guests. Security is great. Bell boys are pleasant, fast and efficient as is most most of staff and although parking is expensive, it is very convenient. The hotel's locations allows one to walk to most places of interest and the hop on, hop off bus stops right outside. The hotel tries very hard to please its' clients but is small so it does not have the capacity that a large Marriott has. It is expensive for Savannah but the location is amazing and despite the problems we encountered, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Upgrade to river front room. Book dinner reservations before arriving in Savannah at restaurants of...

We arrived at night and were immediately pleased. The hotel is all lit up..including the palm trees in front. The lobby is warm, modern and interesting. All of the staff (front desk, vallets, maids) are very helpful and go out of their way to make sure you're happy.

Everything in the hotel is very artistic from the elevators to the rooms. We stayed on the 8th floor for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. We faced the historic district instead of the river. The beds and bedding are very comfortable. We did a Savannah tour and the tour guide raved about our hotel and the rooftop bar.

The location is great. We walked or cabbed it everywhere. We will come again.

We stayed on the 8th floor for 4 nights - never heard the rooftop bar once- actually very quiet stay. The room was facing the street and had large window with a lot of light. We loved this hotel, it was clean and had a unusual ambiance that made the trip special. Wonderful location for everything - highly recommended.

We loved this hotel. It sits on a bluff on the Savannah River. The hotel elevator brings you down to the river front, where they have a great restaurant and bar, more on that later. The hotel is beautifully designed and furnished. It is boutique-like, but the rooms, while not large, are larger than boutique hotels. It also has none of the frantic atmosphere of the typical boutique hotels. It is calm, laid back, and beautiful.
We had a river-front room which was great, but do not be deterred if a river-front room is not available. The hotel has plenty of frontage on the river where you can sit and watch the show that large, ocean going transport ships put on as they pass by. Savannah is a major port on the East Coast. The room, bedding, furnishings beautiful.
There is a very popular, hip, roof-top bar and restaurant which we visited, but did not eat in. Loud, thumping music, big crowd, not our thing, but people were having fun.
We did visit the river front restaurant and bar on the first floor (the lobby is on the 4th fl) and we loved it. Sat outdoors with our dogs, and the food and the views were terrific. Great for breakfast too.
Note: This is a pet-friendly hotel. But pets are allowed only in pet-designated rooms, so no worries about allergies. We have two small dogs, and they treated them great. $150 a night for one or two dogs.
The hotel is probably a half-mile from the "historic district" where there are many hotels. But there is all kinds of transportation to the historic district, you do not need to stay there. We recommend the river front, there is more energy at night, and it is fun.
Lastly, the staff at the Bohemian, from the valets, to the restaurant waiters are great. They have a lot of personality, and do not sound like they are speaking from a script the way you might feel at a Ritz Carlton or 4 Seasons. But the level of service equals those two hotel chains.
Probably $100 or so more a night than other top hotels in Savannah, but worth every penny.

Room Tip: River-front room are a little larger and the view, even from a single window, is fun. But f you can...

This was not our first visit to The Bohemian Savannah and it will most certainly not be our last. The hotel's decor is eclectic and artistic. "Rocks on the River" and "Rocks on the Roof" are unique restaurants/lounges which offer fabulous views and access to one of the most popular areas of Savannah. River Street, Lady and Sons, City Market, SCAD, are all easy walks from the hotel. Having previously enjoyed several relaxing weekends at this hotel, we returned for New Year's Eve and were pleased to be in the middle of a vibrant celebration catering to both hotel guests and visitors. There are many interesting hotels, guest houses, and bed & breakfast inns in Savannah, but The Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront is a unique property that will continue to be our favorite.

Room Tip: both the "historical view" (facing the city) and river view rooms are enjoyable. a real t...

My Husband and I stayed here in November of 2012 for a romantic weekend. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The view of the river and watching the barges coming in was very relaxing. If you go to Savannah you must go to the rooftop bar here and try the crab fritters they are to die for!!! We had such an amazing time and will definitely return to the Bohemian for another visit. Their staff was welcoming and helpful always with a smile. The furnishing are so eclectic and different we just loved everything about it not being a canned hotel experience.

Our first stay here and we were very impressed! Valet parking was easy, bellhop on the spot for our luggage, and we were greeted at the door by the on-scene manager. Front desk girl very professional and attractive.
We paid extra for a river-facing room and it was worth every sheckle! Great view of the river and right below us Savannah's WWII Memorial. Our room was spotless with every amenity you could want.
The rooftop bar is a super place to chill out with outstanding view of river and city, and outstanding service by the bar servers.
Despite being on the river and above the river road (6 floors up) the room was extremely quiet and darkened well for sleep by the curtains.
Breakfast is from menu and had an excellent selection.
The service is great here, everyone friendly. Yes, it is pricey but you really get what you pay for. We did not try the hotel restaurant as a host of good eating is available on the river.
Checkout, bellhop and valet services all top-notch when we left. Next time in Savannah, we'll be back here.

Room Tip: Spring for the river-facing room--it's worth it!
