I did EXTENSIVE research on which hotel to stay at while vacationing in Savannah and this hotel was a fabulous choice! The location was ideal for visiting the downtown/historic area. We were close to EVERYTHING we wanted to see, from the picturesque squares (we saw most of them!) and homes to the Riverfront area to the shopping. I was glad we did not choose a hotel on the waterfront as it was noisy and crowded, and just a few blocks away we found a peaceful home base in the SpringHill Suites. Walking into the hotel, we found a pleasant environment that smelled lovely. Check-in was quick and friendly. The concierge, Austin, was very helpful in referring a great coffee place (Gallery Coffee, a few blocks away). The room was extremely clean and decorated in a contemporary style with a split bath (which was invaluable for our mixed group) and was very group friendly. We were lucky to have a fourth floor room in its own little hallway (Room 430) which was quiet and the laundry room was right across our door, which was very convenient. The beds were very comfortable (we all slept like babies, even the baby!) We had a microwave and mini fridge which proved to be handy. There was a nice pool area on the second floor; however, the hot tub was iffy in that it did not work one day and was not hot the other days. The kids enjoyed the pool very much. The hotel offers a free breakfast with a variety of foods which we enjoyed every day. I advise you go early to avoid the crowd, however. We did not use the hotel's parking facility and here is why: Savannah permits the purchase of a parking permit that allows you to park in most public garages or metered spaces for any amount of time for a fraction of the cost of hotel parking. We purchased a 3 day permit for $6.50 per day and parked next door in the City's Robinson Parking Garage. It would have cost $20 +tax each day if we used the hotel parking, and we were told that they use the same garage. We got this permit from the Visitor's Center on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., just two blocks from the hotel. As far as the price for the room, I was extremely pleased. I make it a habit to keep checking prices up until travel time, and we got a great rate. Our experience at this hotel was excellent and when we return to Savannah (and we will!) we will stay at the Springhill Suites on Montgomery Street.
