“One of the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Down here in Savannah Georgia on Military orders. This Hotel has a very friendly staff, very clean rooms, a pool and hot tub on the roof, and a bar downstairs. It is within walking distance of anything you could ever want to do in Savannah. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place at an affordable rate!

Room Tip: Face the River! Wonderful view!

The physical facility isn't anything to write home about, average Holiday Inn Express. But this was our second visit to Savannah and since our first stay at this Holiday Inn Express went so well, we decided to stay there again. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, greeting you like they are family the minute you walk in the door. Even the valet parking attendant goes out of his way to be friendly regardless of whether you are using valet parking or not. Rooms are clean. Ours overlooked Bay Street and was comfortable. Breakfast was average, but the cinammon rolls somehow tasted better here than at other locations. Will stay here again on our next trip. It is just so darned convenient to everything in the Historic District and the folks are so nice! Price was good, too. And a hint -- the city parking garage right next door is a great value.

I am a frequent business traveler who always stays at Priority Club hotels typically Holiday Inn Express. The outside of the building and lobby areas have the typical Holiday Inn Express feel and are very modern. The rooms at this location are another story. The rooms appear to be much older than the outside if thats possible. The furniture, faucets etc are very aged. On the positive side, the patio and river views are nice however be aware that rooms on the side that face the river are quiet noisy from the road noise below. I loss several hours of sleep due to this however upon requesting to change rooms in the morning the problem was resolved. Great staff, not so great rooms.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river have a great view but are very noisy due to road noise below.

Dear Valued Guest,

We apologize for the time you spent in the first room. We thank you for feedback because without it, we would not be able to improve the quality of our hotel. We are glad to see that our staff was able to make a possible disappointing stay into a great stay.

This was our first visit to Savannah and we were excited to stay at this hotel after reading good T.A. reviews. The location is excellent being that it's right in the heart of Savannah. It is conveniently located to restaurants and area attractions. Be sure to ask for a room with a view as this will definitely enhance your experience and historical appreciation for this city. Breakfast was great with fresh cinnamon buns and coffee with many other selections and the room is spacious with nice flat screen tvs.

Room Tip: Get a room with view of the river

We loved this hotel. We came to Savannah as a Christmas gift surprise trip for my 85 year old mother. We needed connected rooms and really wanted a river view for 3 nights. My experience with this hotel started with Hope. She worked with me to ensure the best value and incredible rooms. The river view from the top floor was fantastic! I'm really thankful for her help. The rooms were spacious, very comfortable & clean. The entire staff was incredible - always willing to help in any way - from the valets, to the front desk, housekeeping & the breakfast staff. Meeting Alfonce, the Front Office Manager, made it obvious that the professionalism & kindness start at the top. The complementary breakfast was very good. The location was perfect. I can't say enough about our level of satisfaction & will be recommending this hotel often and look forward to our next stay.

Hotel is awesome and I want to be there right now as I type this review! We had a room on the front and could look out over Bay St. and see the river too, very nice. Pool and hot tub on the roof. And you can see the river from here also. Breakfast was very good, had large area for tables and large windows to see people walking and cars going up Bay St. It also has a large lobby area for sitting and just comfortable area to enjoy. We stayed here two nights and it was just wonderful.

Perhaps the best location in historic Savannah. Parking garage next door for $12 or valet on the property for $20. Rooftop pool, good place to sit and look out over the bay. Can walk across the street and be on the riverfront or a couple blocks the other way takes you to city market and a couple more to Lady and Son or Pink House is just one block behind. Get higher rooms (5th or better) and corner facing the river for the best views. Room was large and shower was great and very clean and must have been recently updated. Breakfast was typical HIExpress fare. Lounge door opens onto Bay Street and is open when weather is nice. Smokers can take their drink on the sidewalk. Would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Get higher rooms (5th or better) and corner facing the river for the best views.
