We booked our room at the Residence Inn Savannah Midtown all the way back in August 2011 in anticipation of our first visit to Savannah on St. Patrick's Day. We asked the hotel staff at that time if there would be transportation available down to the River Walk and the parade festivities as we were aware parking would be a nightmare. We were told a shuttle would be available to guests. Imagine our surprise when we arrived 3/16/12 and were told the shuttle would be $20 per person!! The shuttle bus was provided by Old Savannah Tours. The shuttle drivers were very patient and accomodating but the schedule for pickups and dropoffs was very frustrating. A shuttle would appear to drop folks off, but despite being told the shuttles would pick up every 30 to 45 minutes at designated hotels, riders were not permitted on the shuttles and we often waited much longer for a pickup than what was advertised. The Residence Inn was clean and well managed. Staff was friendly and professional. There is a lovely open courtyard with a fire pit, chairs and tables in a center area. Unfortunately, our room was on the first floor looking out into the courtyard. As you can imagine with the St. Patrick's Day crowd, the courtyard was party central all night 3/16/12 and 3/17/12. We got very little sleep with the loud talking, laughing and carrying on. I think the management should warn those with first floor rooms near the courtyard about the all night partying. If it is a problem for guests, possibly a room on the far side of the hotel could be offered. Another option is to close the courtyard at 2:30a.m. and folks could move the party inside to the beautiful TV area off of the lobby. If those ideas are not possible, maybe free earplugs should be placed in those rooms closest to the courtyard. We loved Savannah and really enjoyed the parade. We would definitely stay at the Residence Inn Midtown again.
