Holiday Inn Express Savannah - Historic District

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We love our stay at this location. The parking is limited, but there is a public parking garage where you can self park. We paid $38 for a parking fee for a 3 night stay which is not unreasonable considering the location. It is also has a parking attendant 24/7 and monitored with security cameras which is a nice thing to have in any city. I would recommend any visitors wanting to save a couple bucks to park yourself and skip the valet. The hotel location is the perfect place. Being on Bay St, it helps reduce some of the foot traffic, noise, and the shenanigans you might find on River St. The front desk staff were always very attentive, efficient, and very friendly. The room was very clean and in good repair and relatively quiet. The pool on the top of the building is very nice and offers a good view of Savannah. The complimentary continental breakfast is what you would expect, the selections were what you would find in most hotels, but the quality and freshness of food offered was a bit better than other hotels I have stayed at. The only drawback was the elevator, they were clearly a problem. A 9 floor hotel with two elevators will keep them quite busy during busy periods of the day. To make it worse, they were broken or down for repair/maintenance everyday we were there. I would say it was big deal, but it was obvious that management is doing everything they can to keep them up and running and help customers with the nuisances it created. I often noticed the staff helping customers with luggage and providing assistance with the elevators whenever they could. I would recommend this hotel considering the optimum location, excellent staff, and very competitive room rates.

Plastic cutlery, polystyrene crockery, poor food choice at breakfast, painfully slow lifts, one night ruined by noisy guests swearing and shouting in the corridor of our bedroom at 2.42 and then again 2.43 am. Very good and friendly staff but the foregoing: not for us. I am sure that the management would have been sympathetic but we were not looking for "money off the bill".

My wife and I stayed here for four nights while visiting Savannah. The hotel location is great for visiting the historic district, though it is on one edge so about a 20 minute walk to the Savannah Visitor Center or to places like Mrs Wilkes. There is self-parking as well as valet, expect to use the valet as the self-parking lot is often full. The valet staff was excellent, we never waited more than five minutes for our car to be brought around, and we almost never needed the car anyway. Check-in was fast and the lobby and lounge areas are very comfortable. They have free breakfast available which is convenient and can save you a few $$$ compared to the local restaurants.

The room was nice, though a bit small and slightly outdated in terms of available outlets. So many hotels now have USB charging connections, but they haven't yet installed them in this hotel. They offered free wi-fi, but the signal was very poor and nearly unusable which is why I gave 4 instead of 5 stars. There were just two elevators and they were a bit slow, so sometimes we had to wait to get up or down, and most of the time we just walked down the stairs (we were on the second floor). The street noise was minimal, though one evening there were some guests that arrived in the early AM on motorcycle and they spent a few minutes idling below our room. There is an outdoor pool on the roof which was small and usually occupied with children.

The location was great for us, several area restaurants were within a five minute walk including B Matthews (great for any meal, but make reservations) and Vic's (wonderful). It's only a few minute walk to the riverfront, though we found that area to be too much of a tourist trap as our tastes lean towards historic homes. Highly recommended as a great option if you want to stay economically in the historic district.

Decided to stay in Savannah for 2 nights and chose this place for the location in the historic district. We were not disappointed. The place was clean, the staff was friendly, the pool was awesome (roof top pool with a great view of the river and the city) and the breakfast was AMAZING!! Might be the best hotel breakfast I have ever had and I am a huge fan of food!!

Price was a little higher but the location cannot be beat.

Room Tip: Odd side room numbers on the 2nd floor face the alley and parking garage. Ask for a room with a vie...

We booked one night to break up our drive to Tampa. So glad we chose this hotel. We had never been to Savannah and wanted to check it out. The hotel is in a fabulous location and is everything you want in a hotel. The valet parking was very convenient. The room was clean and beds oh so comfy. Breakfast was good. But our favorite part was the rooftop pool area! I really wanted to stay longer and am hoping to visit Savannah again. I will definitely consider staying here.

We chose this hotel for a one night stay to break up a 12 hour drive and relax/have dinner in one of my favorite cities.

We loved this hotel! The staff was incredibly polite! The hotel itself was beautiful, amazing rooms, comfy bed, absolutely loved it.

Breakfast was also delicious! Ohhh and the location was perfection! Right across from the water.

Thank you for a beautiful night Holiday Inn Express!

We recently spent 4 nights here with our 2 sons for our family vacation. The location is in the heart of the Historic District of Savannah. Easy access for walking to restaurants, shopping, and sight-seeing. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Loved the complimentary breakfast daily!
