My wife and I came from Indy and spent a very nice long weekend in room 211. This corner room is liteally at the corner of East Bay and Lincoln with a great view of the waterfront area just across the street. The location is ideal for access to most all of the Historic District.
The room had high ceilings with two walls of exposed brick. That brought the history of this old building right into the room. The hard wood floors and tapestry drapes really gives your the feel of the old South.
The bed was very comfortable and although the A/C unit is pretty loud when it cycles on and off, we slept well. The rooms location puts you close to traffic and thus some noise along East Bay. Still, it was never annoying. (A large container ship blasting its horn gave us start early one morning.)
Breakfast in the bar is simple but very tasty, not-rushed and the servers were friendly and attentive. The bar is located just off the large and comfortable lobby.
This inn is in great location. The river district is just a few steps across the street. Lots of shopping - although mostly souvenir type finds and good food from very casual to sophisticated. We saw Savannah mostly on foot and that's part of the fun. We do recommend Ogelthorpe Tours - a great deal at only $10 per person. You get the lay of the land and can decide where you want to go. Shuttles pick up/ drop off all around the Historic District and take you to the transportation center Janet was our guide and she is a hoot! Funny and knows her stuff.
Parkingat the inn can be tight and is first come first served. If you drive, ask about very easy directions to a public parking garage only a very short walk from the inn. You'r about 20 minutes tops from the airport. Standard fare for a taxi is $28, plus $5 extra per person.
If you stay, read the traveler's journal in your room. It's fun to rea about what others did on their visit and we found some great help in deciding where to eat. (Try Issac's on Dayton. The crab dip is fantastic. It's quiet and dark and we had a very relaxing dinner. The Pink House is an easy walk from the inn. It's busy so make a reservation. Deandre is a great waiter!)
We loved this place. You will too.
