“Grand location. Excellent Staff. Rooftop Pool and Hot Tub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

From a HI Express perspective, we were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived. We were also lucky enough to get a corner room on a high floor which had views across and down the river. Watching the freighters come up the river was fascinating. The room was spotless and the bath amenities were also of better quality compare to other HI Express locations. The location of the hotel is right near all the night life and action. We will definitely return and want to thank the entire staff for taking such great care of us.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room on a high floor.

This was the least expensive of the riverfront Bay Street hotels when my wife and I visited Savannah recently. It is the nicest Holiday Inn Express I've ever patronized. The staff, especially the manager, were all super friendly and efficient. The room was spotless, the bathroom was capacious, and the balcony had a sweeping view of the river and Bay Street. Its location is within easy walking distance of the Historic District of Savannah. There are trolley tour stops nearby, including an Old Town Trolley stop right across the street. I'd stay here again without hesitation, and strongly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms on Bay Street have a better view.

I am a repeat guest at this Holiday Inn Express. The rooms are clean & comfortable and are equipped with a microwave & mini fridge. The beds are extremely comfortable and have a variety of pillows for your comfort. Hot tea & coffee are available in the dining area and we even enjoyed some of the baked cookies during the evening. There are several common area seating choices which are comfortable and a good choice for visiting & people watching. I have enjoyed rooms with a balcony as well as the river view (without a balcony).

I found the staff to be friendly and welcoming. I had the pleasure of dealing with Hope at the front desk. She was efficient during check in and check out. She readily answered the several questions I had posed. She was friendly and greeted us with a smile. She is an asset to Holiday Inn Express.

The location of this facility makes it within easy walking distance to River Street and the surrounding areas. The complimentary breakfast had sufficient choices to start the day.

Prior to arrival, stop at the Visitor's Center and obtain a parking pass (I purchased the $12 - 2 day pass) which is valid in the City parking garage adjacent to the hotel. It saves a few dollars vs. the $20 charge for valet parking at the hotel.

Room Tip: The view from the balcony room was obstructed with trees on the north side of E. Bay Street. Howeve...

The Holiday Inn Express in Savannah historic district sets the standard for other hotels to follow. This is a stylish, extremely comfortable hotel, with friendly, helpful staff. The hotel is immaculate and the interior design flows elegantly through the hotel. The hotel price includes a choice of breakfast goodies, and in the afternoon there are cookies and warm spiced apple beverage.
The location of the hotel is perfect, across the road is the river walk, and all of historic Savannah is just a stroll away. Next to the hotel is a city car park. We left our car for 3 days, no need to drive around the old city.
We have only one minor criticism....breakfast plates and cutlery are disposable, impossible to cut bacon with a plastic knife! A hotel of this calibre should have china plates and stainless steel cutlery.

Room Tip: First stay here, but I can't imagine any room would be anything but excellent.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Our reservations were for 2nd floor but they gave us room on 8th floor with a great view. Loved everything about this hotel except the breakfast didn't have too many options. There are many great cafes within walking distance. Def try B Mattews (2 minutes walk from hotel) and Kayak kafe. We will def come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on 7 or 8 floor.

We are located in an amazing location with plenty of restaurants and tours nearby. We hope that you will bless us with your presence again in the near future.

The Holiday Inn on East Bay Street is in the uniquely historical district of Savannah, Georgia. The hotel is beautifully decorated with much southern charm. The rooms are somewhat small but well appointed; the free breakfast was enjoyable. The front desk and valet staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms could have been a little cleaner and the cleaning staff should know that being personable goes a long way. I would love to come back to Savannah and have no issue at staying at the Holiday Inn Express again!

My wife and I stayed at the HI Express during a weekend in Savannah. Everthing was better than most any Holiday Inn you'll stay in. Front desk, valet and other staff were very friendly, polite and helpful all the time. Room was in excellent condition and ours overlooked the river as a bonus. Good location as well. Highly recommend this if you desire hotel services instead of B & B.
