The Westin in Savannah is one of the best hotels in Savannah. I should know; I grew up there. It is probably the largest hotel in Savannah, and it is very luxurious. Unlike every other hotel in the downtown area, the Westin has a vast courtyard and pool area. The Westin is actually located in South Carolina (on the North side of the river). All of the other hotels are located in Savannah (on the South Side of the river). The best things about the Westin’s location are the following:
1. Lots of Room: Since the Westin is located across from River Street and not on River Street, there is not much development. That means that when the Westin was built, they had a vast amount of land to work with. Therefore, unlike other hotels in the area, the space is not cramped.
2. Great Views: Since the hotel is located on the South Carolina side of the river, you have an extensive view of downtown Savannah.
3. Peace and Quiet: The Westin is not a “party” hotel. The party occurs on River Street, so even if you are out on a Saturday night, you will not have partygoers hanging out around your hotel. If you want to partake in the festivities, there is a free ferry that will take you to River Street and back to the hotel. There are two downsides to this, though. The last ferry runs before midnight, so you need to grab a taxi if you stay out late. Also, the ferry comes every 20 minutes. This is fine if the weather is nice. Otherwise, it feels like forever.
I would certainly stay at this Westin again. As with all Westin hotels, the rooms and beds are very clean and comfortable.
