“Historic District-Best Western”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

This hotel was a great location, walkable to terrific restaurants, the historic district, the river and boardwalk and all that glorious Savannah has to offer. The beds were comfortable; we ordered a king, but got two queens, however. It's a clean spot, with very helpful staff.

Room Tip: We stayed on the north side of the building which was very quiet and our vehicle was nearby.

The staff was very courteous, room was clean, hotel grounds were clean, this was a perfect hotel to stay in. The computer wasn't working in the hotel lobby, but Guest Services was more than willing to print something up for me. Breakfast was very good also.

It was quiet and comfortable. The room was a very nice size, with two comfortable queen beds. Unlike many hotels we've stayed in recently, there was a plethora of outlets for us to plug in phone chargers, a travel fan, and the laptop. The furnishings overall were great and made the entire room seem very cozy. The bathroom was spacious, and the hot water... oh wow, we could have cooked ourselves if we wanted to! (This is a big plus for us, so many hotels fall short out of fear of liability, but I WANT a hot shower after a long day. The Best Western nails it!) Towel and turn down service are great, with the staff visiting our room on both days while we were out. They made the room look brand new each time, not cutting corners anywhere. I feel this is a "lost art" in the hotel industry, but the staff at the Best Western have obviously mastered it.
Perhaps the best part of our stay was the front office staff. Judy was very friendly, professional, attentive and helpful. She was extremely pleasant from the time we checked in, and maintained that great demeanor all weekend long! She gave us great advice on how to get around town, and was always there to offer directions and the best way to get to many of the city's best attractions and points of interest. I wish I could remember the name of the concierge who worked Saturday morning, he was also extremely helpful. He told us where to go for breakfast (Goosefeathers), and it might be one of the best meals I've ever had. He was very careful to map out all of the places we wanted to see that day, and wouldn't let us leave until we were comfortable with the directions. To be honest, I have stayed in some five-star luxury resorts around the world that couldn't match the service we received over the course of our two days in Savannah.
One other thing to point out is that there is a $15 per night parking charge. Via some research, that is more than fair compared to other hotels in the area as parking is at a premium. It's fine though, just park your car and take advantage of the numerous free and cheap transportation options Savannah has to offer. Another good thing about: check out time was at 11 am on Sunday, but they let us keep our vehicle in their lot until 5pm allowing us a few extra hours to tour around the city before leaving.
In short, I highly recommend this location whether it's for business or pleasure, as it is close enough to most of the things to do in Savannah, and is literally a street away from the River Street markets.
We must point out that we did not eat the continental breakfast, and thus have no opinion of it, nor did we make use of the fitness center.

Room Tip: We stayed on the "back side" of the building, and the parking was plentiful and I feel lik...

We read multiple reviews about this location, most were good but the negative ones focused on the noise from outside. We stayed two nights, a Friday and Saturday, on the last weekend of the Savannah Music Festival. We didn't have a single problem with noise. In fact, it was very peaceful. The room was clean, well kept, nicely furnished, and overall very comfortable. The staff is excellent, and will help you find anything you might need during your stay. The concierge service will absolutely point you in the right direction to thoroughly enjoy your stay in Savannah. For the price, and its convenient location to all points of interest, this might be the best value in the entire city!

I appreciate your feedback regarding our rates but we are very comparable to every hotel in the Historic District and consistently offer the best value in downtown!

Positive first - the hotel is within walking distance of the River Walk and City Market.
Negative - the breakfast was the worst continental breakfast I have experienced in a hotel in a while - even a Best Western. Ate breakfast the last morning across the street at the Doubletree, which was worth it. The rooms were ok, but the refrigerator was inside the bathroom. I know it was under the sink, however, it's not pleasant to be siting on the toilet next to the refrigerator cooling your fruit.

Thank you for your review. I am very disappointed to hear your description of the breakfast offered here at the hotel. I will certainly speak to the complimentary services manager immediately, as this is unacceptable. I do apologize for the placement of the fridge in your room, but do to room space requirements that is where they must be located for now. Thank you again for your comments and if you are returning to the Savannah area, I would love for you to call me (912) 629-2101. I will be happy to offer you a discount on your next visit.
