This wasn't our first visit to Savannah but it was our first time at the River St Inn. The room was nice and clean, the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in. We had a balcony river view room. The view was wonderful,however the "balcony" was barely large enough for two people to stand... More

We appreciate your review and will address the housekeeping issues you experienced. Our historic 200 year old building was originally built as a working cotton warehouse. The French balconies were never intended at the time, for leisure as they were used to oversee the loading & unloading of the ships on the river below. As we are on the National... More

Absolute Southern charm in this stunning hotel. The staff was very accommodating to the guests, even offering turn down service at night, nice surprise! It is located In Historic downtown and no need for a car when walking is the key to restaurants, quaint shops, and historic sites. River street is buzzing with people, a place to put on your...

My husband and I stayed at River Street Inn for his birthday weekend. Our room faced River Street and had a small balcony. The balcony is literally big enough to stand on, but that's about it. The view was great, but balcony was small. Our room was decorated nicely, but had a dampness in the air. Our towels never dried... More

Absolutely perfect, room was light and airy with great old furniture and a fantastic view of the river. The free wine and cheese was surprisingly good quality and the billiard room was excellent. Did not want to leave!

Savannah is a great place for a night or two, and so is this hotel. It is conveniently located to River Street and the north historic district, assuming there is pleasant weather. In the world of "repurposing," the building is a 19th century cotton storage building/complex. There is an adjustment if you are not accustomed to older facilities, but there... More

My wife and I had a weekend getaway at The River Street Inn. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. The hotel Is wrapped around a 5 story central atrium in a 200-year-old converted cotton warehouse. It is Savannah’s only member of Historic Hotels of America. Very nice! I highly recommend!

Great location right on the river walk, which has food and entertainment all along it. Hotel offered a drink and snack reception in the early evening. Very nice employees. No problems with noise. Only complaints is the queen bed felt like a full and the room was small and smelled a little damp. Other than that it was very clean... More

This was our second and final stay at River Street Inn. Yes, it is old, but that is no excuse for the lack of cleanliness. The staff was more concerned with flirting with other staffers than taking care of visitors. They were not helpful in recommending much of anything. We had a king room with a balcony overlooking River Street.... More
