“Great location”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Great location if you want to be in the historic district. Very convenient to river street, restaurants, etc. They do not have a mini store on site so stock up in advance. The rooftop pool is cool and the kids enjoyed that. The place is fairly clean. The staff is very friendly.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

My boyfriend and I stayed here while attending a wedding. While any hotel in downtown Savannah during a peak season weekend is expensive, I believe this was one of the best deals for having to spend so much money. The location is GREAT, service/valet was great, and the only snafu we ran into was a leaky iron (which guest services promptly replaced with a brand new one in-box). I would definitely stay here again.

LOCATION: This hotel is in the historic district of Savannah so most anything is within walking distance. The hotel staff was friendly and the lobby and rooms smelled noticeably fresh and clean.

PARKING:
We took advantage of the Valet parking ($20 a day) because the other parking lot there was full. There's a parking lot by the river, but there are no attendants and a sign states they are not responsible for theft or damage. ($5 flat rate for 24 hrs - you pay with credit card or cash, but the machine does NOT give change.)

BREAKFAST:
I was especially pleased with the complimentary breakfast (served until 10am.) The dining area was clean and roomy, and much better than run-of-the-mill continental bagels and coffee. There were pancakes (make your own fresh), omelets, bacon, turkey sausage, biscuits and gravy (delicious!), toast, fresh fruit, yogurt, cinnamon rolls, and more. The coffee was hot and fresh, and there were several juices or milks to choose from. Even the pickiest eater would be able to find something to satisfy them.

ACCOMMODATIONS:
The room was equipped with a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave, and the beds were comfortable and were provided with both firm and soft pillows. The bathroom was clean and stocked with quality Bath & Body Works shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, and soap. An ironing board, iron and hair dryer were also provided in-room.

CHECK OUT:
Check out was a breeze, and our valet attendant had our vehicle at the front door in a matter of minutes. The vehicle was in good condition and the attendant was courteous.

We had a great stay at this hotel and will stay here again next time we are in Savannah. The only con was the street noise, but that is to be expected in the heart of the city.

Our 1st time as a large group in Savannah and we could not have picked a better location. It was in walking distance to EVERYTHING. Very nice accommodations, with spacious rooms and nice lobby area. The breakfast was an added treat! The front desk staff folks were adequate but not as good as the actual property itself.

This hotel is absolutely perfect. It is ideally located in the heart of the historic district, walking distance from absolutely everything you'd want to see and do during your visit to Savannah. The rooms are extremely well appointed and comfortable, with luxurious linens and down pillows and comforters and even include a microwave and empty mini fridge. The hotel includes breakfast and every morning between 6-10am they set up a great buffet that includes everything you could ever want for breakfast-- anything from bacon and eggs and pancakes (made to order by a very cool pancake machine) to biscuits, grits, fresh baked cinnamon rolls and fresh fruit and cereal. It was a perfect way to start the day. I was a bit skeptical about staying at a Holiday Inn Express because I usually stay in more luxurious hotels, but I was blown away by how great this hotel was. The staff was super-- the girls at the front desk couldnt have been nicer and more accomodating and they even have a lovely roofdeck pool. I had considered staying at the much more upscale Andaz, but I am delighted that I stayed here instead.. I actually passed by the Andaz during my stay and found that it was not as centrally located as this hotel.I HIGHLY recommend this hotel for any visit to Savannah.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view-- its fantastic!

This was a very nice hotel...Great location, decorated beautifully, clean room, good breakfast with a variety of foods. The only complaints I have is that the entire time except the last day, there was only 1 elevator working. Very inconvenient & frustrating. No complensation for this either.. Also, the fee for valet parking was a little too high... $20.00 day. We used this for 1 day & then moved the SUV to the Public Parking (same parking lot) only $12.00 day...Don't let the Lot Full Sign fool you...It was on when we went to get our car and we saw at least 15 or more empty parking spaces....

Room Tip: Choose a corner suite.

This hotel has a great location in the historic district. The parking situation is not good as the entrance is very small which results in waiting vehicles to be forced to sit in the street among active vehicle traffic. Although there is a parking garage next to the hotel vehicle entrance, it was full during our stay so we used valet parking. Once in the lobby, the desk personnel were very pleasant and we received a fast check-in. There were two elevators, but one was out of service our entire stay which resulted in some long waits.We upgraded to a corner room with a view of the river area, the view was good but the street traffic noise was a bother. The room was clean and comfortable. The best part of our stay was the front desk staff who were just great.

Room Tip: Don't upgrade to a corner room unless you like street noise.
