“Savannah A Must DO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

The hotel was extremely helpful with directions and recommendations. The hotel is a short walk to the Riverfront Street where you can walk next to the river, shop, take riverboat to tours and ghost tours. You can drink alcohol while walking which was sweet :) Totally recommend a river boat tour.

We had stayed here 2 years ago on our first trip to Savannah and loved everything about this hotel. Perfect location close to the River Walk with lots of shops and restaurants. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, pillows medium/firm, a great breakfast selection, and very friendly staff. Do it yourself parking right next door or you can use the Valet for $3 more per day. The next time in Savannah we will be staying here again for sure.

Room Tip: i don't think they have a bad room in the hotel. Both times the rooms have been quite nice. I di...

My sister and I had stayed at this HIE a couple of years ago, so we were looking forward to returning when we could spend a couple of days showing her husband around Savannah. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and we had to arrive a day later than expected and could only stay one night. Somehow both our reservations got messed up -- in different ways -- but that was straightened out. The front desk staff was professional, if not overly friendly. I think they were dealing with a lot of changes due to the weather, as well as checking in what looked like members of a high school band. I was leery of having to stay in a hotel with a bunch of kids running around (I have had unfortunate experiences in the past), but I never heard them. Thank you, Front Desk staff, for placing us in another section of the hotel!

My king room was exactly what I expect from HIE. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room and bathroom were very clean. The wifi worked well. My room was on the second floor facing the main street, but I did not hear any street noise. The hotel is in a great location across the street from Factor's Walk, with many shops and restaurants, and I had a glimpse of the river between buildings. We had to leave early the next morning or we would have enjoyed being within walking distance of many of Savannah's squares and other historic sites.

The breakfast room is very large and kept clean. It is laid out well so it's fairly easy to move around when it gets crowded. You can expect the typical plentiful HIE breakfast.

We use valet parking, but there is a garage right next door. The Holiday Inn Express Savannah-Historic District is our go-to hotel when we visit Savannah.

Nice historic building of old Savannah, renovated into a modern Holiday Inn without losing it's character. Perfect location right by the main street and river. Walk to shops and restaurants galore. Comfortable rooms with great service by all, they all smile here, gotta love that.

TIP: Valet Parking is $15, but parking right next door, which is by the entrance is like $5.

experience was great overall. nicole at the front desk was very helpful. we got there and she seemed very happy to help us and called up to our room to make sure we had everything we needed. the only thing negative was that we had a voucher for free parking and we still got a bill for parking the next day, but the front desk promptly fixed it with no problem.

Again the Holiday Inn dosnt let me down. I was very impressed with the breakfast and the staff it really seems as if the Holiday Inn has took on some ultimate form of customer service because they are great, I have found my new chain of hotel for our family travels. Way to Go Team! These rooms are clean and the bed are comfortable it was just a perfect stay.

We are in the process of driving from the Philadelphia area to Fl., staying at hotels along the way. Whenever possible, we choose a Holiday Inn Express because we've never had a bad experience in any of them. But, I do want to single out this Savannah hotel. The location is ideal, the rooms are kept up to date and very clean & comfortable, great free hot breakfast & free wi fi. The entire staff are very friendly and accommodating . But, the hotel manager, Alfonce, is one of the nicest, friendliest and most helpful person we've come across in many hotels.
We'll stop there again on the way back to PA.
