Hotwire/ Hilton Desoto

We've been to Savannah many times but this time, we're just passing thru for one night. I think we have stayed just about everywhere over the years so I thought I'd take a chance on a 4 star hotel in the Historic District. I was slightly disappointed to learn that it's the Hilton Desoto, mostly because of the location but also, I don't think it deserves four stars. I'm not super familiar with that immediate area so any restaurants or nightlife suggestions in close proximity would be helpful!

I think you'll be fine at Hilton DeSoto as some say it's in the center of the historic district. You can walk to River Street or Forsyth Park with relative ease versus staying at one end or the other.

We've stayed at The Hilton Savannah DeSoto several times, and some renovations were just starting when we last visited five years ago. The hotel has a 3-diamond rating on AAA. All rooms do not have balconies; that being said, the corner rooms do have balconies, as well as a few other rooms on the front and back.

We always stayed in a non-smoking corner room on the club floor (highest floor) and could view the Talmadge Bridge from our balcony. Not sure if the club floor is still available, but there were complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in the late afternoon, complimentary breakfast in the morning, and complimentary beverages throughout the day; parking was also complimentary.

It is a great area to have as home base when visiting the historic district. Right outside the back door is E.Shaver Booksellers, plus the Flannery O'Conner Home, Forsyth Park, Mercer House, the Design District, Mrs. Wilkes, Clary's, etc are all within comfortable walking distance.
