My husband and I stayed at the River Street Inn for one night the end of July. We had a beautiful, comfortable room with a balcony overlooking the river. We had stayed here several years ago and loved it then also. Their free wine and appetizers are also a wonderful touch. You can't beat the location, because River Street and... More

The hotel was outstanding. We got a king room with a balcony. The room was spacious and well furnished. The air conditioner cooled the room off nicely which was great as we were there in August. The balcony was large enough for both of us and gave a great view of the park below and the waterfront. The hotel was... More

Thank you for your review. Even though we have the strongest internet strength possible, our brick, ballast and cobble stone construction built 200 years ago makes certain areas of the hotel impossible to get through. Internet providers tell us there is nothing that can currently be done, we've tried! That being said, it's one of the many "quirks" that make... More

This hotel was fabulous. Historic, had ambiance, great views of the river, right in the middle of all the restaurants. Savannah has 22 squares of parks with gorgeous oak trees, with each square every 2 blocks. One was 2 blocks from the hotel. Very nice to have a cup of coffee in the shade. We got a balcony room, but... More

Thank you for your kind review. When our hotel was built 200 years ago, it was a working cotton warehouse. The French balconies were not meant for leisure, but for watching the work being done on the waterfront below. Since we are on the National Historic Register, we cannot change them. Now, 200 years later, they simply add to the... More

Been staying here for a few days each summer now for a number of years and it is a nice historic inn but the best part is the location. We have looked at other hotels, some cheaper, some more expensive but there seems to be a more relaxed group of people staying at the River Street Inn than some of... More

I stayed here for two nights on a 7-week road trip. This hotel is in a beautifully restored cotton exchange building. Many rooms, like mine, have balconies overlooking River Street and the Savannah River. The staff was excellent. There is a small parking area in front where you can park to load and unload your bags, but overnight parking is... More

We had a great time exploring Savannah from this central location. It was within walking distance of everything. We faced the street instead of the river and the noise wasn't an issue. The bars were all within a 10 minute walk. The restaurants were wonderful, and the price was spot on! Overall an excellent trip.

Make sure to ask for a river view room. The place is very old and comfortable. I bathrooms could use an upgrade. Other then that it's in walking distance for everything you need.

Beautiful historical hotel on the River. Period furniture in the room. Restaurant was on the 2nd floor overlooking the bustling River street Walk. They also had a reception of wine and appetizers from 5- 6:30. It was on on the 2nd floor with a billiards table or sit outside on their deck with rockers for people watching. The rooms were...

My daughter and I spent a weekend in Savannah as a last hurrah to the summer. I chose the River Street Inn because of it's location and because my daughter thought it might be haunted due to it's age. We wanted historic Savannah; well we got it. The directions to the Inn were not very clear and my GPS took... More
