“Another Kimpton gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I'm writing this review from the hotel. Another stellar Kimpton property!
We stayed here during a stop on our way south. Have been in Savannah often and love the city. I waited to book the hotel because the rates seemed high. However, with the AAA discount, the rate was more approachable than many including budget chains.
But the main event is the hotel. This is a refurbished boutique property. I booked a premier king and was delighted when we were upgraded to a suite! This gave us a fabulous living room, stellar bath and a lovely, contemporary bathroom. The furnishings are al very retro comfortable with lots of good lighting and seating. The bath is amazing! Lovely tub, walk in shower and fabulous lighting, mirrors, etc. The bedroom features a canopy style bed with a very cotemporary nod. The bedding and robes are first rate and we slept extremely well. The rooms were quiet except for the street noise (our room faced East Bay). if that is an issue, ask for a room on one of the other sides where things are quiet.

The best part of the entire stay though, is the staff. From the valet, door staff, registration, housekeeping, everyone -- always smiling, polite and so very, very helpful.

We at dinner at the restaurant, and I will be reviewing this separately. The dinner was very good.

Two negatives that I would like to point out are the lack of accessible outlets in the living room area -- could not plug in my laptop there, although there is a fine spot on the desk in the bedroom; and the lack of a fan in the bathroom. There are fabulous mirrors in the bathroom, but they all fogged up and the floors get slick, so lots of the wonderful towels were needed.

I have become very fond of Kimpton properties after staying at several last summer in California. I do wish there were more of them. This is a stellar choice!

First let me say that I am a loyal Kimpton member. This hotel lived up to the name. We reserved a Premier King. The room was not very large but of adequate size.The bed was too large for the size of the room. The tub was the size of a small pool, almost too large to relax in. The bar and restaurant were nice. The hotel was beautifully decorated but the layout was confusing and inconvenient. In order to get to our room, we had to go through several doors and down an outside hallway.
This said, I have to say that this hotel does not belong in Savannah. It is too modern. We could have been in any large city, so much so that we changed hotels for out last night so that we could fully experience Savannah's charm.

We stayed here based on the fact it was a Kimpton hotel, even though it was brand new. It needs time to mature. The punch list, missing surrounds on sprinkler heads, etc. has not been completed. The service was spotty at best. The assistant GM did what she could, but they still are sort of the gang that can't shoot straight yet. I think they will get it squared away, but it is not there yet.
Also, if you are looking for a place that is traditional, this is not it. The room decor is distinctly modern and spare, which is not my style.

We were really excited that priceline was able to secure this hotel for us. We called ahead & asked logistical questions (how much is held on our cc, bed selection, etc). We were travelling for our anniversary as we've done almost every year. We were checking in and the employee says that they have to hold 75 PER night on the card. Which equates to 225 for our 3 night stay. These are things that should not only be outlined on priceline (especially after booking the hotel, these details matter). Additionally, I wasn't advised as to this hold when I called and asked, I was only advised that the 25 /nt for parking would be charged to the card. We did somethING diff this year. We brought only one card pre loaded w the amount of money we'd planned to spend (in an effort to stay on budget and not over spend on our outings and stay). I budgeted for the 75 parking fees but NOT the additional. So this amount was taken off of our spending money. We were not happy. The person checking us in could care a less about our dilemma. To top it all off, the person checking us in announced "so you booked your room with priceline so loud tht everyone around us heard (rude). One lady even asked how much Id paid for the room.
The room: the room was just ok. Sure, nicely decorated. But more like "lipstick on a pig". The bathroom was so tiny you couldn't open the door while siting on the potty. The tub was filthy. Literally, the rub was dirty and looked old. They advertise that if you've left something g at home to ask and they'll have it brought to you. Right before midnight, we called down for towels, wash cloths and soap. They were delivered on 3 different trips to our room over the next 30 mins.
By this point, we were aggravated. Frustrated. And decided the next time we visit the area we will stick with either the Hyatt or Bohemian where we were treated like guests & there were no surprises. Also, you get an actual key upon check in for the mini bar. The room also has a snack bar on the desk where they sell their snickers for a whopping 5 bucks. Also, not a tourist hotel as most guests are dressy. Just wasn't a relaxing experience. We spent a lot of time making sure we weren't getting charged for some thing we shouldn't be only to get home and realize that we were charged for water and snacks that we refused to even touch. Next time we'll stick to our tried and true hotels on river street. This hotel is nothung like the others in the area and that's certainly not a good thing.

This place is doing great. They have some bugs to work out but the hotel is nice. Our room was in great shape and the people were very friendly. Wish we would have known the pool was not open yet but the staffs friendliness more than made up for it.

First, I have to say that the hotel is beautiful, clean and modern. There is a great modern library atmosphere right when when you walk into the hotel.

We stayed in a room that had two queen beds and it was great. The room wasn't cramped, the beds were very comfortable, and vanity outside the bathroom had a makeup mirror. Also the rooms have an umbrella for you to use during your stay. I have to say that I loved the gray, white and green tones of the room. We had a room that overlooked the courtyard which was nice, but unfortunately we were on the 1st floor and felt like people could see in if we were to leave the curtains open. The only real negatives we had was that the armoire/closet still smelled like paint and the pool was under construction.

The staff is great from the valet to front desk. All were very friendly and willing to help you however they could.

The hotel is located on the far east side of downtown area, but it is still within walking distance of most places you want to go to (if it's not too hot out!!!).
