Located in the heart of the Historic District, The DeSoto reigns as “Savannah’s hotel.” She is a beloved landmark that has played a gracious hostess to presidents, celebrities and visitors since 1890. Treasured period details, including original crystal chandeliers and terracotta tiles, mix seamlessly with contemporary art, creating a thoughtful juxtaposition between history and modern-day style. When you stay at The DeSoto, you're within walking distance of so many famous attractions including Forsyth Park, River Street and City Market. You'll love the view over beautiful Madison Square from our rooftop pool and patio. Dine in one of two on-site chef-driven restaurants (Proof & Provision or 1540 Room). With over 20,000 sq. feet, our meeting and event space features panoramic views of the city, perfect for any gathering, business event or wedding reception.

I had never been to Savannah, Georgia before. I picked the DeSoto because it was centrally located in the historic district. Check in was super easy. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. My room on the 11th floor was clean and spacious. The view was excellent.

Great hotel located downtown Savannah. We were visiting family and it was central to everything. Right off the interstate and you can just simply walk down to River Street. My family definitely will return!

Certain rooms have fridges, not all. We are only a few short blocks from the river, BUT the parade ends right at our doorsteps. We only offer valet parking, since you plan St. Pat's weekend, street parking will be VERY RARE.

This hotel is not a normal place. No place for children to eat except bar area on a Sunday night. Certainly not family friendly. So much more is wrong then right.
