“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is in one of the best locations in the city for walking around. Our room was decently large and had a good view of the river.

There were a few downsides, but nothing that would prevent me from staying there again. First, the elevator was very slow (granted the hotel was pretty crowded). Also, we were highly disappointed in the valet service for our car. After a frustrating experience with the valet, we decided to park on the street instead. We had to drive around a little to find a parking spot, but it was not too bad.

We would first like to thank you for taking the time to write a review and offer an apology for the experience in valet. We are sorry that the elevators were not to your liking, but during this time with so much traffic it can be very busy so the elevators can take a little more time than usual. Our valet holds the same expectations as the rest of the hotel and we want to make sure we get to the bottom of the situation. Please feel free to contact me at hienm@princebush.com to discuss your experience with our valet service.

The reviews are quite accurate. This was my second stay a the hotel. The location is perfect. The hotel is clean, well decorated, and staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Some advice about room location: rooms in the back of the hotel face a parking ramp. Rooms that overlook Bay Street have great views, but have some road noise. Rooms with balconies have the most road noise. Bay Street is a very busy street. Avoid connecting rooms. I was awaken by my "neighbors" at 2:00 a.m. Lastly, some of the king rooms are quite small - those in the "x16" series. For my next stay, I would ask for a room overlooking the side street.

Room Tip: Avoid connecting rooms. Balcony rooms have a lot of road noise.

This is my first trip to savannah, although my husband has been many times before. We both agree this is the "BEST" Hotel here in Savannah! We checked in Thursday afternoon and from the very beginning we were impressed! We were welcomed by one of the nicest Managers we have ever met. Mr. McKinney went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable since we have a 5 month old baby. The room is just BEAUTIFUL ...we stayed on the 5th floor and had a balcony that over looked the river! The Beds were so comfortable ...my husband says he has not slept this good in years. The Hotel and its rooms were very clean and all the staff from the front desk to the maids were ALWAYS very friendly! Miss Hope is a wonderful person at the front desk who always checked on us ....even calling to see if we needed milk for the baby! The Breakfast was so big...we had eggs, pancakes, biscuits, bacon, sausage, ham, cereal, and FRESH Cinnamon Buns....we have never seen such a wide, fresh, hot variety of breakfast food at a hotel. Let me again let everyone know this hotel is very clean and the staff makes you feel like you are at home! The location is perfect so you can walk straight down to river street where the strip is......its just a few steps from the front of the Hotel......but let me stress this ...... even though people are out walking the strip and partying down by the river ...there is no noise to interrupt your sleep ...so this location is the best! There is a Roof top pool with a Hot tub and it is soooooo pretty up there! Everything about this hotel was wonderful and we will make plans to come back and stay here again! It is only 15 mins from Tybee island which is a very family like beach that is very clean and beautiful! I must say this is the best trip I have been on and Mr. Alfonce McKinney is one of the nicest and most outgoing Managers we have ever met. Any Hotel would be so lucky to have a manager like him, and he is one of the many reasons why we will only stay here from now on! The price is worth the stay ...we even stayed an extra night because we enjoyed ourselves so much. Please feel free to email me and I will share my experience with you. Thank you again Miss Hope & Mr. McKinney...we will for sure be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors for a BEAUTIFUL view of the river.....you can see the big boats g...

Great place to stay. Comfortable beds, spacious rooms, full breakfast, pool, and right in the middle of the historic district. Walking distance to anywhere you need to go. Wifi, lobby computers, parking. Very clean. Shower was as big as some rooms I have stayed in ! Lol Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for view of river

We were fortunate to get a room here on our first trip to Savannah. The location is near the water and all the lovely squares. The cleanliness was excellent. We have not been able to get a good price since our last stay, the cost is significantly higher now. Our stay at this Holiday Inn made our trip a lovely experience.

This is a great Holiday Inn Express. Conveniently located on Bay St. Easy Access across the street to River St. and the shops. Hotel is very clean. Great staff. Clean rooms. Good breakfast.
Tried to rent a few different condos that showed they were available for the dates that I needed, but after inquiring the owners for each of them they responded that the requested dates were not available. These owners need to keep the dates that these rentals are available up to date. Otherwise its a waste of my time. Of the 6 rentals that I inquired about that showed they were available for the dates I wanted to stay, after I sent them a message they replied later that day that the dates were not available. Next time I'm in Savannah, I'll stay in the Holiday Inn Express

Nice hotel, good breakfast, good location. I would not pay the $20 per day for Vallet parking as the public ramp is right next door and that is what the HI uses. We were checking in as part of a wedding party and the reservation got a little messed up but we got a room.
