“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We were able to walk to so many places. Enjoyed our visit. Room was very nice. Quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We visited Paula Deens restaurant, went on carriage and trolley tours all within walking distance. Would stay again.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. We had a great corner room with a view of the water, we were on the 6th floor and could see the big ships and boats go by. From this great location we were 1 block from the riverfront and right in the heart of great restaurants. Our room was super clean, spacious, and very quiet. Because of its location we were able to come back to our room more easily to rest between visits. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was hot and well stocked. We will return again, we visit Savannah every year and somehow missed out on this gem of a Hotel. We loved our stay here.

Room Tip: Try to get a corner room, they are quieter and more private.

Enjoyed a great time at this hotel! Great welcome at the front desk with lots of smiles! Nice, clean hotel. Great location, right in the historic district! Didn't get to see the roof, but heard it was nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view. My brother's view was much better than ours!

My husband and I decided to take a weekend trip to Savannah, Georgia to get away from home after the holidays. This was our first time and we stop to a couple of places before arriving late in the evening. We searched tripadvisor for a nice hotel located in the downtown area. Our first choice was not as close as we thought it would be to the downtown area so after searching again we came across the Holiday Inn Express Savannah Downtown District. I tell you when you are away from home you try to find a place that is nice and comfortable. This hotel was just that and more. From the beginning to the end their employees and customer service is excellent. From the time we pulled to the front entrance and stepped out of the car until the day we left. The hotel was beautiful and provided comfort to us both. The location for the best restaurants clubs, and scenery was just wow!!!!! Thank you. The rooms were exceptional and breakfast was fantastic. Managers and employees give yourself a hand you all are great. Managers please keep up this hotel it is not often travelers leave home and can locate a wonderful clean hotel as yours with such a great staff. This hotel is a 5 star you guys are great. My first experience at this hotel has made my husband and I decide to return in March and make reservations here again. Please don't change your great hospitality. Again we thank all of you for your kindness and welcoming us into your hotel with warmth on our first visit.

Hotel was in a great location, 1 block from the water front in the historic district. Short walk (4-6 blocks) to lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. This was very important to us because we didn't want to have to drive to see the city and we intended to try several of the bars, so driving was again not an option! Priced fairly for the location and amenities. Staff was so nice and helpful. Room was very clean and the bed was like sleeping at home. Public parking deck next door was roughly $5-15 a day depending on week day vs weekend, they also offered valet for $20. Breakfast in the hotel was a variety. Hot biscuits, bacon eggs and gravy, along with fruit, cereal, muffins etc. all very good.

Room Tip: We were asked at check in if we wanted a room on the river side of the building which is on the road...

The hotel is in a central location in the historic district. Overall, the hotel is decent especially for the price! The free breakfast is decent with many different hot and cold options. The one thing that was frustrating was that on the second day we came back to our room only to find that the room was cleaned but that there they did not refill the toiletries or the coffee. I was told at checkout that we should have called to ask for it which I didn't find acceptable. Other than that, a great location at a great value.

Paid $5 extra per night for river view room - well worth it. You can see the container ships from your window, beautiful view. Room clean, breakfast buffet better than expected. Valet parking $20 day - Park at the city garage next door for $12 per 48 hours and park yourself. This also gets you other parking around town.
