Would strongly advise anyone thinking of staying at this hotel to rethink due to the serious damp problem evident in many rooms. We had booked a river view king size room but on arriving in our allocated room (on the third floor) it was evident there was a massive damp problem, apart from the smell, the wet thick air, there were brown specked markings on the soft furnishings and rust on the lamp stand, all down to damp spores. The employee on the front desk (really sweet helpful chap called Maxwell) showed us alternatives but again as they were on the same floor and overlooking the river they all had the same consistent problem. How Hilton can sell these rooms with this problem present is questionable. We chose in the end a room on the fifth floor overlooking the city which was musty but not damp. However the bar above (Top deck) which does not belong to the hotel (and actually is very good) moves furniture around at the end of the night so be prepared for scraping of furniture from any time after 12.30am at weekends and a little earlier on weekdays. Breakfast was poor - no effort made by the hotel unless you like carbohydrates, very disappointing even in Covid times. No fridge in the room so the ice bucket kept our milk and yoghurts chilled but to not have a fridge in the room was a great inconvenience. We opted to have the cleaning service done however we were alarmed to see not a single member of the cleaning staff wearing gloves or masks so cancelled this service and did it ourselves for rest of our stay (4 night stay). It is apparent the cleaners work hard but no masks whatsoever on all the cleaners we saw all of the four days is extremely worrying and we as guests wore masks and the same should have been the rule in this substandard hotel. As a recent reviewer has commented Hilton should be ashamed to put their name to this hotel. Savannah is a beautiful city and we will definitely come back but will not be staying at this health hazard hotel.

If you are like us you love to travel to cities and stay in a historic property. This one is a lovely little gem right in the river district of Savannah. From our first contact with Sage by phone to confirm our reservation until our departure we were given the best of service, and had a great night’s sleep in a comfortable bed. I almost hesitated booking this hotel based on a few reviews I’m sorry to say. We rely on Hilton the most for our frequent travels but have been especially careful to book properties with high TripAdvisor scores for cleanliness on our few necessary trips since Covid started (as I am at high risk). I wipe down the frequently touched areas on arrival, and this room was clean. So here it is: a hotel in a 200 year old warehouse on the river is not a cookie cutter property out by the interstate. I am sensitive to odors due to asthma and I had no problem here. There was a faint pleasant smell of old wood from the repurposed heart pine floors that are in every room. My husband said it reminded him of a library with wooden shelves when we were kids. (As someone said, my inexpensive rubber soled sandals did stick a tiny bit on the finish of the lovely wood floor; my husband’s shoes did not. We have wood floors at home and you have to be careful the products you use on them). I didn’t wake up with sinus issues as I usually do when traveling. We enjoyed a nice seafood dinner in the restaurant attached to, but not a part of, the hotel. Everyone was so helpful and gracious in both, even though you can tell they are a bit short handed, which we figured is due to Covid. If you like boutique hotels as we do, you should enjoy this one, too!

We've been to Savannah many times so we knew right where to stay so we booked this hotel for its location and its 4 star rating. The location did not disappoint but pretty much everything else did. Not sure how it gets a 4 star rating but we certainly didn't experience that. As a Hilton diamond I look forward to a bit of special treatment, nothing here, no upgrade and not even a bottle of water. No bellman service, breakfast was more like motel 6 and even the restaurant/bar service was poor. You can certainly blame Covid for service lacking's these days but there is a point where it moves to being an excuse. This hotel sits right between the Bohemian and the JW Marriott, both also 4 stars, but no comparison. For example we went to the rooftop bar at the Bohemian, packed and lively, rooftop bar at JW, line to get in so couldn't even get there, rooftop restaurant at the Cotton Sail, dead and poor service even at that. Guess we missed the notice but live and learn.

Just recently stayed here in October and I definitely would not stay here again. Hilton should be embarrassed to put their name on this hotel. I called prior to my stay and asked for an early check in if possible, I was given a run around with no one offering to make a note on my account (Hilton has always offered to put on a note on my account and do their best to accommodate). They asked me to call back the day of check-in (which I did) and again got a run around. When I checked in, I was noted greeted as a Gold member, nor was it even acknowledged that I'm a Hilton rewards member. They made no effort to see if a room would be available or try and get one ready for me early and no one contacted me when my room was ready (also not the norm for hilton). I was told to just "show up" at 3pm for regular check in. My room had coffee stains in the sink that were fresh which means no one took any effort to check that the room was ready for check in. Thankfully they did upgrade me to a river view room, however the room was dark, dingy, and old looking. The only highlight of this place was it's location and the concierge who helped me find good places to eat. When I checked out the next day, the person did not ask how my stay was or thank me for being a Hilton member. I'm honestly pissed to have wasted a free night reward on this, but probably would be more pissed if I actually paid. Plenty of other better options to stay at next time I'm in town.

We went down for a short visit, and stayed at the Cotton Sails Hotel. We were greeted at the curb by a very nice man who also took our bags to our room. He was very courteous and helpful. The room was very nice and clean. We had a Juliette balcony facing the river. It was convenient, and had a nice bar on the roof to relax and watch the boats go by. The only criticism I have is small: it would be nice to have a mini-fridge in the room. Otherwise it was quite nice. We also felt it was a bit pricey, but competitive with similar properties like the River Street Inn.
