“Pleasantly Surprised!”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Loved the look and feel of this boutique hotel not your standard Express...even the lobby had a wonderful scent! Front desk staff was awesome even after my questions everyday. Rooms (8th fl.)were nice.. small seating area...sink coffee maker frig...queen bed comfortable...large walkin shower. Breakfast has everything you need....lots of seating. People complained about the bar area...keep in mind I really don't know of any other Holiday Inn Exp. that even has a bar so it was a great asset for us (party of 6 ). Becki the bartender was excellent!! Not only could she mix a drink but had great dining suggestions and they were all good...love the to go cup. Rooftop pool (unheated) and hot tub felt great after walking all day...nice view also...watched fireworks. Trust me for the price and location you can't go wrong....in the historic area and steps away from River St..
Tips: Bring comfortable walking shoes more than one pair...leave the heels at home...this is a walking city. Next I would skip any of the trolley tours was not impressed next time I would do a walking tour with a private guide. From the visitor center you can take a shuttle to Tybee Island for 6.00pp roundtrip best bargain in Savannah. Bring lots of money your gonna need it lol!

Very busy week-end but the hotel handled it well. Rooms were clean. Over-all condition of hotel very good with some minor maintenance issues. Would stay again but not at the price we paid. Gave them a 4 because it was good for a HI Express and better than some of the similar level chain hotels nearby.
Pros: Rooms, good breakfast options hot and cold, has a full bar, friendly staff.
Cons: Filthy elevators, bar is small with very bright lighting on one side that destroys lounge atmosphere. Group of kids taking up sofa/fireplace area of the bar which caused others to look in, see lack of seating and leave. Bar tender should have sent these kids to the breakfast area as they lost business because of them. Came back Sat. night at 12:30 am. Doors locked. Card would not open them. Pounding on door but no-one came as apparently no one at the front desk. Finally had to pry them open with other guests.

Room Tip: Ask for street side room

We checked in today for the 3rd-4th year (and we stay spring and fall). My internet connection was so weak, I could not stay connected. I called the desk and they sent an engineer to our room who brought back a router and connected it directly to our computer. Great service!

This is a great location in Savannah. Within walking distance to everything. Becky is one of the best bartenders I have ever met! She is very knowledgeable about the resturants in town and can get you a reservation where you want. Keep up the good work Holiday Inn Express!

For a $500 weekend not what I would expect - my gal pal and I spent $500 for 2 queen beds in a lovely room in a well located hotel in the fabulous town of Savannah yet service poorly lacking, In the end this was a Holiday Inn not a Westin or a Hyatt - waited 40 mins on Sun afternoon for a bellman for luggage assistance and finally just assisted ourselves. Breakfast "ok", I guess I'm spoiled but for the price - I' d like a little more.

Well kept, well-designed rooms, lovely public areas, and it is in a great location. Can walk everywhere from this hotel or catch the free shuttle nearby. Parking garage right next door. The rooftop area is such a nice feature. We will return, enjoyed our stay here immensely.

I recently stayed at this hotel and was thoroughly impressed. It is a little boutique-y hotel in the heart of the historic district. Everything was top notch, from the front desk staff to the room and its accommodations. I actually had to stay later than I had planned and they were so accommodating in letting me keep the room a little longer. Breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend this hotel!
