Stayed three nights with my wife and her cousin's son (who is visiting from Brazil). Got a good rate on a executive suite, which would give us all some privacy. Unfortunately, upon arrival we were told the hotel was overbooked and the room we requested would not be available the first night. Got a standard double instead.
They offered to refund the difference ($30), and I pushed to get free parking for the stay (otherwise $10/day). So, it was basically like getting bumped from a flight: remuneration for the inconvenience. Not a total loss, but not the experience for which I paid originally.
Having seen both types of rooms, be advised that the standard rooms are in the "old" section of the building. They are run down and small. Furniture is crammed in helter-skelter, making it hard to move. The suites are in the "new" section of the building and are well-appointed. (There are also two separate elevator systems, one for each section, making for a weird experience until you figure out what is going on...)
The website gives you the impression this is a posh and refined hotel, full of southern charm, but it has definitely seen its better days. The location is its biggest asset.
If you get a good price and are willing to put up with the general mismanagement of the hotel, you'll be fine. However, it gives every appearance of being an establishment in decline, so there is a time stamp on that assessment. Too many other options in Savannah. We'll be staying somewhere else next time we visit.
