An excellent experience from start to finish. From the valet to the front desk, even the cleaning staff were outgoing, pleasant and helpful. The location is great. The room was comfortable and affordable. The recommended restaurant (Pink House) was excellent. I would encourage anyone visiting Savannah to stay at the Planter's.

We stayed at Planters Inn for 3 nights. Had a wonderful time. Excellent staff, especially Marie at breakfast and the two Patrick's. We also looked forward to and enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese get togethers. The concierge and staff were very helpful with restaurant reservations, tour and transportation pick-ups. We really appreciated all the help and cooperation we received. The rooms are nicely appointed and clean. The only draw back is looking out on a multi-level parking structure. Otherwise, Savannah is beautiful and fun.

Room Tip: Specifically request a room not facing the public garage.

I stayed at the Planters Inn on Reynolds Square for four nights in July. The hotel has a good location, a few blocks from the Savannah river front and a block from Broughton Street, the main shopping street in the historic district, and perfect for walking around the squares of the historic district. Reynolds Square (like most squares in Savannah) is very quiet and pleasant.

My room was average for a hotel room, but there was sufficient space and storage. The bed was very comfortable. Coffee and green tea was provided. Wifi worked fine for me, sufficient for Skype calls and video. The bathroom was on the small side but not uncomfortably so. Toiletries were very nice. The view from the room wasn't - looking at the multi-storey parking garage immediately across the street (and I expect this is the same view for the majority of rooms) - but it didn't bother me and I had expected it from reviews. I had a few issues with the TV - the remote provided controlled the cable feed but there was no remote for the TV itself, so couldn't change volume or switch the TV on and off without using the buttons on the set itself. There also appeared to be some issue with a mismatch between the sound and images, but I am not sure if that was a cable issue. I didn't use the TV enough for it to be a problem. The only other issue was that the safe in my room didn't appear to work. (Neither the TV or safe problems bothered me enough to make me raise them with the hotel.)

The hotel provides a continental style breakfast in the mornings. The quality was good, with a nice selection of pastries and bread, fruit, yoghurts, teas and coffees and so on. The room the breakfast is served was on the small side, but I never had a problem finding a room. The room service is provided by the Old Pink House across the street. I didn't order because the delivery/service charge from room service was the worst i have ever seen, but the food on offer looked to be good quality at a mid-to-high range sort of price.

Staff were universally helpful and friendly. The hotel offers complimentary wine in the lobby in the evenings but I never attended.

All in a pleasant stay in a hotel with a lot of character and in a great location. I would stay at the Planters Inn again.

As an extra tip, Henry's diner at the back of the hotel is a great place for cheap, wholesome lunches with great service.

Room Tip: If you don't want to overlook the parking garage go for one of the few room swith a view of the...

We could not have picked a better place from which to explore Savannah. The rooms, lobby and staff were excellent. I don't think we have ever had a staff as attuned to the guests needs and desires as this hotel. All smiles and quick with responses for any questions or recommendations. Hotel is very centrally located for walking to most of the parts of the historic district. If you wanted your car to go further afield, it was out front within 5 minutes. This is the hotel we will use for our future visits.

We stayed at the Planters Inn early last week. We loved it! The location was wonderful (walking distance to everything including the river walk), the hospitality was great, the room was quaint and very clean, the lobby was pretty and the service was great. The concierge was very helpful, and they set us up with a tour within minutes of checking in. You can't beat this hotel for convenience, quaintness, and great quality for the price. I highly recommend this boutique hotel.

Rooms are small & beds hard. Frig cost extra. Not a lot of outlets. However, we got more than our money's worth at 89.00!! Breakfast included but no meats or eggs! Still was an overall good experience but may not stay here again. Would like to try some other historic inns.

It's so great when you book a hotel from across country and hope you made the right decision. All the pictures and reviews don't tell the whole story until you actually get there. Planters Inn surpassed all expectations and found myself reassured every time I passed the other contenders on the various tours we took. Staff was great, beds were fantastic and coming in from the muggy Savannah weather to crisp AC was always a relief.
I'll be back...and so will anyone I talk to.
