At a stone’s throw from the waterfront and right in the heart of the Historic District, I already knew that this Holiday Inn would be prime location for my recent trip to Savannah. I had stayed at this hotel about a year ago when I was down from New York for business. The experience was only average, but when it came time to book my latest trip down with friends and family I wanted to give it another try. I had heard it had changed management and undergone renovations…and, again, you can’t beat the location.
I was tremendously surprised as soon as I walked in the front door. With the changes made to the lobby and entire ground floor, I felt as though I was in a brand new hotel! I remembered the dining area and front entrance as being a little outdated, but now everything down to the smallest detail has been beautifully updated. It now perfectly blends the feel of being in Downtown Historic Savannah with the amenities and ambiance of a cosmopolitan hotel.
Along with the extraordinary physical transformation came a top-down management overhaul. On my initial stay last year I remember the staff being somewhat apathetic, but now that could not be further from the truth. Form the moment the valet greeted me I knew this staff cared about my stay. The front desk could not have been friendlier, and more helpful. As this was now a trip for pleasure, I wanted to make sure I was pointed in the right direction for dining and sights. The concierge did not disappoint. She led us to some of the top restaurants and best activities. Most of which were a just short walk from the Holiday Inn’s front door.
I will definitely stay at this hotel on my next trip back down to Savannah!
