Reviewed 21 April 2009

My husband & another couple friend stayed 2 nights here in April 2009 & it was an excellent choice, you will not be disappointed! Quite frankly, I was hesitant about staying in a Holiday Inn Express, I was hoping for something more "historic" and "quaint" like The Marshall House, but they didn't have availablity. I am glad we ended up here. The service was wonderful from the valet parking attendants, (Very nice people) to the people working behind the counter. We tried to check in about an hour early and were told a room was available, but if we wanted to wait & come back in about 2 hours they would have a room ready with a much better view. We decided to wait & it was worth it! The rooms were very nice & clean, (new) and the bathroom is larger than most. The rooftop pool & hot tub area is a nice touch. (pretty view too) One evening, we went downstairs to the bar & had a few drinks before dinner, the bartender was very friendly and gave us lots of tips of the area. Also the concierge was eager to help us in any way & gave us an excellent choice to go for breakfast one day. (even though they serve a continental breakfast at the hotel, it's your basic hotel free breakfast) You will love J. Christophers! It's actually an old fire department turned into a restaurant. YUM! Lastly, you will like the location of this hotel. It's right in the middle of the district and an easy hop across the street to River Street. You will be happily surprised by staying at this Holiday Inn Express! TIP: Ask for a room with a view.

Nice new hotel - great service - good value! There was not one day that someone at the front desk didn't say good morning to us as we left and returned to the hotel. Also, front desk was also so calming during a recent tornado warning ( thankfully it didn't hit) that occurred while we were there - kudos for keeping your cool among the harried crowd! Housekeeping was superb - hotel is new and very clean. Beds were very comfy and cushy. This is certainly not your average Holiday Inn. Perks were that our stay came with a complimentary continental breakfast which was nice - and our room had a small fridge and microwave. Apparently the company that owns this property also owns the other hotel we stayed at for the first part of our trip, the Holiday Inn in Charleston SC, Historic District. Whatevery they are doing, they are doing it right! Both properties were awesome and deserve their high praises.

Great location, very stylish hotel and above average for a Holiday Inn Express. We had a great time here. Had a view of the parking garage. Wished our view could have been better though

This is a great example of how a hotel should be run. All the staff were very friendly. Our room was comfortable and clean.

The staff members were helpful in helping us to find places to go. They called the trolley company to pick us up right outside the hotel. The breakfast was wonderful. It included hot foods and nice baked goods. We also loved the roof-top swimming pool.

The location is also nice. It is right across Bay Street from the riverside area. It is a short walk to enjoy the shops, restaurants, and other attractions on River Street. Also, the river cruise boats pick up nearby.

We had asked for a river view room, and our request was granted. It was fun to watch all the ships going up and down the river. There was a little street noise on Bay Street from all the trucks going by, but the noise was not excessive. We were still able to sleep well.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, then we journeyed to Washington, DC to stay at the Grand Hyatt there. The Grand Hyatt did not measure up - we kept wishing we were back in Savannah at the Holiday Inn Express!

This fairly new property is in a great location in Savannah's famous historic district. It is within walking distance of most everything downtown and River Street. My room was roomy, very comfortable, had a large closet and bath with a walk-in shower. The staff really went out of their way to make you feel welcome.
