My husband and I were married in Savannah 6 years ago and we have stayed here at least once a year for the past 6 years. The East Bay Inn is an old, beautiful, historic building that still holds its' old world appeal and you can feel that each time you walk into the building. It is VERY southern, abundant with wood furniture, antiques and elaborate carpets and lighting. Before welcoming a dog into the family last year, we stayed in the corner front rooms on floors 2 and 3 which are lovely with high ceilings, exposed brick walls and beautiful detailed crown moldings. The only drawback is the traffic noise below on Bay Street. Now that we have a dog (and THANK GOD they welcome dogs!!!) we can only stay on the first floor. We like room 102 which has a side terrace, albeit on the parking lot. I stayed in room 106 last month (behind reception) and found that it was lovely but had no exposed brick, was noisy due to the employee door squeaking and banging right outside my door and the fact that people walking by could look directly into my room from the sidewalk (there are blinds on the giant windows that you can adjust to prevent this). This place could definately use some updating (carpets, bathrooms, breakfast area) but I love it nonetheless. You CANNOT beat the location to all of Savannah's "squares" or to River Street which is a 5 minute walk. Limited parking at hotel but complimentary parking in a city lot about a 5 minute walk. Free high speed internet is iffy. Evening cordials every night from 5-7 in the lobby (wine, cheese, crackers and fruit) are a nice time to have a nibble and meet other guests (a popular topic is "Charlie" the resident ghost...we only encountered him once in all our stays). Complimentary breakfast is nice (continental in nature) but would rather dine elsewhere (Cleary's or B. Matthews which is right around the corner) to have a more broad experience of Savannah. All in all, not a 5 out of 5 but a wonderfully rich, historic and romantic place to stay.
