Just spent three days here - the hotel is perfectly located on the river, beside a trolley stop and close to restaurants, bars and historic buildings. Staff were helpful and pleasant. The central atrium is beautiful but the rooms could do with refreshment - furniture and fittings are a bit tired.

If you are looking for a really nice yet old and quaint hotel in the historic part of Savannah right on the river where all the action is then this is the place.

Our 2nd visit to the River Street Inn. We love this place. The rooms are beautiful, the service is top notch, everyone is friendly & helpful. No doubt if we come to Savannah again, we'll stay here again.

This is probably my favorite hotel in the country. I've stayed there many times over the last 20 years and each time I return it's like coming home again.

We booked a 5 night stay and found staff to be very helpful and polite. it's close to many nice restaurants and historic sites in walking distance. the only downside is that parking is off site which means you drag your luggage from a parking garage a block away. it's $15 a day there to park. we might have chosen...

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear you were displeased with the our parking arrangements. As with most historic districts, parking is quite limited; fortunately our historic preservation foundation protects the destruction of our city's beautiful buildings from being replaced by more parking garages. We do, however pay the City of Savannah close to $10,000 per month to... More

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to stay at the River Street Inn. The front desk could not do enough for you. The bell hops were so kind and gracious. The location was perfect with secure parking across the street. The large windows and small terrace overlooking the traffic on the river was fabulous.

Assessing only the hotel and its facilities, I would consider the hotel to be very good. It is the friendly staff and its location right on River street that make it excellent. I stay in a lot of hotels and generally know the difference between happy staff and those who are pretending to be happy. The folks here are genuinely... More

Stayed one night in Savannah on our way North from Florida. River Street Inn was chosen for it's location and history. We arrived early in the afternoon, booked in quickly and then took a trolley tour of the city. Afterwards walked the three- or four- block area near the Inn and had supper near the City Market; all very relaxed... More
