This hotel is located a fair distance from the River Street area, but if you can get around okay you will be fine.
No extras here. No free Continental Breakfast, parking, newspaper or wireless internet. Everything had a fee. Most hotels in Savannah did offer these things for free. When we checked in I asked if there was a room available with a view of the river. They said that would be an extra $10 per night. So they HAD a room, but it wasn't available unless you paid more. We said no thank you.
Hotel wanted to charge $18 per night for parking. Don't do it. Go to the Visitor's center and buy a parking pass for $8, good for 2 days! You can park in any public garage, lot or parking meter (the hour or more ones). We did this and parked our car on the street overnight near River Street. Also, the city has 2 different free shuttles (called the Dot). They are buses that make a certain route around the historic district. You can get on and off at any of the stops. Maps of the routes are available at the VIsitor's Center. I tried to inquire with the hotel about the free shuttle and they 'knew nothing about it'. I found this surprising since there was a stop for the shuttle right in front of the hotel.
This was a very noisy hotel. We were on the 4th floor. The walls were thin so you heard your neighbors and people in the hall. There was a loud argument going on right next door at about 2am. We also heard the traffic going by on the street below and people down in the parking lot.
On the plus side, the room was clean. We stayed 2 nights and they came in the second day to freshen up and restock toiletries. The best thing about this room was the bed. We had a king size bed and there were 6 pillows on it. The sheets were very plush and the mattress extremely comfortable. It made it hard to get up early and start your day.
