“Centrally Located to the City and Has The BEST Complimentary Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

My partner and I just returned from a long weekend at the Hilton Desoto. We drove from Tampa to the hotel on Thursday night, after work. Upon checking in to our room, we found a lovely room equipped with a king sized bed on the 8th floor. Due to the mild temps, we chose to have the windows open and allow the Spring breeze sooth us to sleep. The bathroom is good size with a newly remodeled shower. The room is equipped with a refrigerator, desk, coffee pot and large sized flat screen TV. I can proudly boast, however, that we didn't watch a single minute of television. The hotel is in walking distance to everything. It's a must when visiting Savannah. LITTLE SECRET: go up to the 15th floor for spectacular views of the city.

Room Tip: Get the King Sized Deluxe (Corner) Room.

This hotel has a very convenient location, close to many restaurants, pubs, shops, and the river front. The rooms are, uh, historic, but clean and comfortable. The rooms could use some basic maintenance. The lobby area is quite nice and the staff were helpful. The location more then makes up for any imperfections in the hotel itself.

Wonderful hotel. The service was superb from the bellhops, hotel check-in, maid service and restaurant service. We had a corner room on the 11th floor with great views and a balcony. The location puts you right in the middle of Historic Savannah so it was easy to walk to any place we wanted to go. Even though it was a busy weekend, even the elevators were quick. The only downside I experienced was noise from the city as people partied outside until early morning.

The hotel DeSoto is a great property located in the historic district. Short walk to River Street or Forsythe Park. The Trolley Stop is also located just steps away. The Conceirge was very helpful in helping us make choices to on how to best spend our short time there. It was also great to purchase the tickets right there on the property. The rooms may be a little older, but were very clean and had a great night's sleep. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Valet parking was very convenient and we were able to have our car waiting for us when ready to check-out. Would definitely stay there again!

We had a small gathering of customers and key vendors (about 50) and the hotel was great - good service, friendly staff, great location within easy walking distance of downtown Savannah and the river front.

Room Tip: Don't get near the elevators - they are noisy.

Wonderful location on the edge of the Historic District, 10 blocks or so from river. Everything in easy walking distance which is good because they only have valet parking which is a pain. They were busy when we arrived and we had to wait 10-15 minutes on the sidewalk with our luggage to get the car taken care of. The downstairs has been nicely updated and has a Starbucks counter in the expansive lobby. Good meeting rooms and restaurant. Elevators (3) are fast. It's when you get upstairs that the age of the building becomes apparent. Rooms are OK in size with real wood furniture which is a nice plus. However, the bathrooms are small as you would expect in an older building and there's only so much you can do with that. Very good water pressure in the shower. The other downside was the acoustics. We were next to the elevators and could hear them and conversations in the hallway very clearly, as well as people on the street 11 floors below. Staff was friendly and helpful although one night there weren't any pillowcases on my pillows which wasn't a big deal, just odd. In summary, I like the place (except for the valet parking) and would not hesitate to stay again but if you are expecting one of the brand new generic Hiltons, it ain't one. Still I was very comfortable here.

Room Tip: The higher on the River side the better. Ask for a balcony as only a few of the rooms have them. S...

Jim M - We certainly appreciate the feedback, we continue to work and upgrade the property throughout the year and some of the areas you mentioned will be tackled this year. We apologize for the pillow cases, strange is right but consistency is what we are seeking so we will work to get to that end! Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

The Desoto might not be sparkly and hip, but it's a great place to stay. There's a garage below the hotel so you can just take the elevator up to your room. The rooms are simple but clean and comfortable. Great beds & pillows. Nice big tv. Get a high room if you want a view of the bridge (pretty at night) or I like a low room sometimes in the back looking down on the purple lit pool. The breakfast is super, better biscuits & sausage gravy then my favorite place a few blocks away (I was surprised.) There's a bar, you can walk across the street to a gourmet market if you don't feel like eating out. (Across from the 7/11.) There's 3 pubs and a dive bar a block away, lots of cool places right around there. The staff is super friendly, good looking and sincere. Stayed at the Mansion on Forsyth on the way to FL, the Desoto on the way home for much less money and we loved it.
