“Holiday Inn Express exemplifies southern hospitality par excellence.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2010

When my wife and I arrived on Monday, September 27 after a challenging rain storm to Savannah, we were greeted by the professionals at the front desk with a rewarding smile and a pleasant and warm greeting of "Welcome." After unloading our personal belongings, the Valet staff took professional care of our automobile. Yes, the entire three days in the Historic District of Savannah was enhanced by the professionals at the Holliday Inn Express on Bay Street with comfort, convenience, and true southern hospitality par excellence. The "home away from home" indicated the preamble of "people do not care what you know but how much you care." Our reunions with relatives from Tucson, Arizona, and Orlando, Florida enriched our brief stay in Savannah to be memories for a lifetime. Thank you, Holiday Inn Express Staff, for your outstanding service above and beyond the call of duty. You made Savannah proud for your thoughtulness and positive attitude in making my wife and I feel at home in Savannah.

This Holiday Inn Express was not your typical HI Express. It's a multi-story building with valet parking for $15 a day. Or, if you self park in the garage right next door it's $10 a day. We left our car in the garage and never drove it until we left. The hotel is beautifully decorated. Our room was a little small (but by no means uncomfortable) and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable with wonderful linens and great pillows. There's a roof top pool (which we didn't use) that I'm sure would be nice to relax in after long day of sightseeing. In the evening there's a lounge right off the lobby. The bar tender is extremely friendly and the drinks were great. In the morning there was a very nice complimentary buffet breakfast which had the most wonderful cinnamon rolls!!
Also, our room had a mini fridge in it which was nice. Also, there was no charge for the internet in the rooms. If you don't want to bring your computer but need to use one. There's two right off the front lobby which you're welcome to use.
After a very busy day of taking in all the beautiful sights of Savannah, it was nice to come back to such a comfortable hotel and relax. Would we stay there again? You bet!!
The only negative....in the lounge area there are these ceiling lights, that are very bright
and cannot be turned off because they're on some type of a timer. They really detract from the ambiance of the room. It's like sitting having a drink with a spotlight over your head, but this is the only complaint I had the entire stay!! This property certainly exceeded our expectations.

I travel a lot and my family stayed here in the last week of SEPT 2010. The hotel is pefect in many ways...
1) This is right in the middle of the bay st and right across from all the attractions on river st.
2) Its right next door to a parking garage
3) Room has 2 queen beds (most hotels have 2 double beds)
4) room has a microwave and refrigerator
5) Breakfast is included in the room tariff and is excellent. Dining hall decor is great!
6) Lots of outlets in the room for plugging in laptop, iphone, iron, etc...
7) pool in the top floor
8) bar with in the hotel.
9) Restroom had both bar soap and a bath gel (most hotels have either or). The size of the soap bar is quite large (larger than may other Marriots and hiltons and Hyatts that I have stayed). One might think this is inconsequential but think about struggling to hold a small soap bar with wet hands.
10) compuer and printer (I printed my boarding pass before leaving at the hotel) next to guest services.
11) 5 min walk to the river side, bus tour stops, and to all other restaurants
12) free wireless internet

I could not ask for more.

We stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't fault the hotel in any way - it was great value for money. Location-wise it was perfect for exploring Savannah on foot. Staff were helpful and friendly, the buffet breakfast was pretty good, and features such as free internet and access to rooftop pool were very welcome!

Nice hotel as can be expected from a holiday inn, but for an "express" it is quite comfy. It is well suited for a savannah night out as it is within walking distance (littereally over the road) do the seafront. its probably not the quietest during the evenings for this reason, but its not overly noticable
Valet parking at $10 is worth it also

We stayed at this excellent historic area hotel in s tastefully decorated room with a view overlooking the warehouse district and the River. The location is in the center of this beautiful old town and ideal for walking and sightseeing.

When I called to make a reservation, I spoke with Jennifer. I told her we wanted a room with a view of the river (if possible) since we would be celebrating our 13 yr. wedding anniversary. She reserved a special room for us with not only a view of the river but with a complimentary bottle of chilled sparkling wine and a note from the hotel staff wishing us a happy anniversary!! That was a pleasant surprise! Our room was very clean, spacious and had everything we needed. This hotel is also centrally located to the riverwalk and all of the shops and restaurants. Having the pool on the roof is also a plus (especially for the view). We had a very pleasant stay. . We would recommend this hotel to everyone. Thank you Jennifer and Dave(Mgr) for making our stay a very memorable one.
