“Very nice after a room change.”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We ended up at the HI Express by mistake, but it all worked out so well. We had wanted to stay at the Staybridge, but something happened w/ reservations and we found ourselves a couple blocks away at the HIE. Initially we had a Very small room w/ one queen on the 2nd floor. We decided to talk w/ the clerk at the desk--Sasha--and she quickly moved us to a lovely large room that faced Bay and was perfect for our 5-day stay. The breakfasts were great--best biscuits ever w/ southern gravy, amongst other offerings. The atmosphere in the lobby, dining room and all 1st floor rooms was cozy and fitting for the historic district. In the end, we visited the Staybridge and found that their "remodeling" had erased every aspect of the former cozy lobby. We would have been so disappointed and unhappy w/ the new look.

The location of the hotel is absolutely ideal! You can walk anywhere you need to go! The rooms are slightly on the "cozy" side but we'll apportioned.
We left for savannah after work on Friday and got in about 1:00 am saturday and there was a problem checking in. We booked a king room with a view back in December, but when we arrived they said there were no king rooms available, much less with a view. The hotel was at capacity so after some back and forth we checked into a double queen room.
In the morning my boyfriend called corporate and we got a call back from the day manager Hope, she was so nice! I mean went above and beyond to fix the situation! She found us a king room, moved our luggage, offered to comp our tour tickets and was just so lovely! Over all it was a great trip even with the rocky start...
The two tips I would give any traveler would be to park in the public garage next door to the hotel and to ask for Hope if you need anything during the stay!

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Bay Street again due to the great experience we had last year at this hotel. The room was clean and spacious and the breakfast was delicious with a great variety. The staff were more than helpful just like last time. This is one of the best locations in Savannah and the HEI does a great job of running the hotel. Unfortunately there were a few issues this stay. The wireless internet is excruciatingly slow; bring a CAT5 cable to plug into the wall for usable internet. The valet parking seemed to be unorganized as cars seemed to pile up as people checked in and out. There was one other issue at check-in but it was corrected on the spot. Overall, you would be hard pressed to find a better hotel in the Historic District.

We stayed here on a girls trip and loved the location. We could walk to shops, restaurants, parks and more. I parked our car in the garage and did not move it until we checked out. Hotel was clean, comfortable and friendly too!

Spend the extra money and stay at this hotel, do NOT take a cheaper route and stay near the airport or outside the Historic district. It will pay off immediately when you are in walking distance to everything. The front desk was more than helpful and are able to assist with any tours you wanna take, or places you'd like to eat. You are close enough to all landmarks in the Historic area. We will stay here again when we visit Savannah again.

Room Tip: If you are doing a trolley tour, pay for it at the front desk, walk across the street and begin your...

The hotel was extremely helpful with directions and recommendations. The hotel is a short walk to the Riverfront Street where you can walk next to the river, shop, take riverboat to tours and ghost tours. You can drink alcohol while walking which was sweet :) Totally recommend a river boat tour.
