It was quiet and comfortable. The room was a very nice size, with two comfortable queen beds. Unlike many hotels we've stayed in recently, there was a plethora of outlets for us to plug in phone chargers, a travel fan, and the laptop. The furnishings overall were great and made the entire room seem very cozy. The bathroom was spacious, and the hot water... oh wow, we could have cooked ourselves if we wanted to! (This is a big plus for us, so many hotels fall short out of fear of liability, but I WANT a hot shower after a long day. The Best Western nails it!) Towel and turn down service are great, with the staff visiting our room on both days while we were out. They made the room look brand new each time, not cutting corners anywhere. I feel this is a "lost art" in the hotel industry, but the staff at the Best Western have obviously mastered it.
Perhaps the best part of our stay was the front office staff. Judy was very friendly, professional, attentive and helpful. She was extremely pleasant from the time we checked in, and maintained that great demeanor all weekend long! She gave us great advice on how to get around town, and was always there to offer directions and the best way to get to many of the city's best attractions and points of interest. I wish I could remember the name of the concierge who worked Saturday morning, he was also extremely helpful. He told us where to go for breakfast (Goosefeathers), and it might be one of the best meals I've ever had. He was very careful to map out all of the places we wanted to see that day, and wouldn't let us leave until we were comfortable with the directions. To be honest, I have stayed in some five-star luxury resorts around the world that couldn't match the service we received over the course of our two days in Savannah.
One other thing to point out is that there is a $15 per night parking charge. Via some research, that is more than fair compared to other hotels in the area as parking is at a premium. It's fine though, just park your car and take advantage of the numerous free and cheap transportation options Savannah has to offer. Another good thing about: check out time was at 11 am on Sunday, but they let us keep our vehicle in their lot until 5pm allowing us a few extra hours to tour around the city before leaving.
In short, I highly recommend this location whether it's for business or pleasure, as it is close enough to most of the things to do in Savannah, and is literally a street away from the River Street markets.
We must point out that we did not eat the continental breakfast, and thus have no opinion of it, nor did we make use of the fitness center.
