“Nice Hotel a Little Outside the Main Tourist Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Just returned from a 3 night stay here. The staff was very nice and helpful. The hotel itself was very clean and we loved the courtyard area with the pool, firepit, etc. Our room had a bit of an odor but hey, it's Savannah in the summer so that can happen in the heat and humidity. The hotel is located on the fringe of the historic district in an area that appears to be starting to regenerate and there are a few other chain hotels located in the same area. It's fine if you make a beeline down Liberty street into the historic district but I wouldn't recommend straying too far in any other direction, especially after dark. Otherwise this is a good example of a nice Residence Inn and the money you will save by staying on the outskirts of the historic district is worth the extra few blocks walk to see the main sights. We had a car so we would drive in to the historic district when we knew we would be returning after dark and had no issues finding cheap, secure parking in the main tourist areas. Overall, I would recommend this hotel as a lower priced alternative to the hotels in the historic district/river front areas.

We were very pleased with our stay here in Savannah, Georgia. I researched a long time to find just the right place to stay and this was perfect! It is located right next to the Visitor center so as soon as we checked in I walked there and picked up information on the town.

The room was very nice and included a nice sized kitchen, breakfast area, couch and living area that was open to the king size bed. The bath room had the tub and toilet separate from the sink area which is always nice when multiple people are getting ready at the same time.

The location was excellent. The beautiful streets and squares were right by the hotel so we walked to them and enjoyed the surrounding area.

I will stay here again when we return!

I stayed her for 2 nights as a first time visitor to Savannah

Pros: great staff; free breakfast, free happy hour, big rooms with full kitchens, small sized hotel, so easy to navigate, free street parking, if you're lucky enough to find a space, which can happen otherwise valet is $12 a day. Hotel will also take care of your extended stay needs such as dry cleaning, food shopping, etc.

When the desk chair in my room wouldn't raise/lower, within a few minutes of calling the front desk, I had a new chair that worked. Every staff member was awesome - from valet, to front desk, to bartender, to facilities.

CON: only one, the hotel is technically in downtown and very close to key attractions, it's just that it is on the 'wrong side' of a large boulevard that you need to cross to get to everything else. Savannah is a pedestrian friendly city and each traffic light has crosswalks and pedestrian signs, but I did have to be a little more hyper vigilant when I crossed the busy intersection to get to everything. As such, this hotel is maybe better suited for someone staying for an extended period, for a short stay like mine, you might want to check out the Courtyard Marriott which is right across the street but on the 'right side' so you don't have to cross that busy intersection.

I would recommend this hotel if you like suites and/or if you have kids, there were a fair amount of children (all well behaved) who seemed to enjoy the pool and the breakfast buffet. Also this hotel seemed to be dog friendly.

Room Tip: Room choice: if you want to use the pool, I think the cottages are more convenient. I had a 4th floo...

Nice hotel on the outskirts of the historic district. Very quiet - rooms are standard for a Residence Inn. Nice courtyard pool area, quality breakfast included with room rates. Staff were very friendly and accommodating.

I recently stayed here for a national gymnastics competition with a group. This hotel is within walking distance of many things in the historical district but it iis on the outskirts of it.That is not a problem though since the free shuttle that runs downtown stops at the hotel.
I have stayed at several Residence Inns and I found the rooms at this one to be slightly larger than the others I have stayed at. My daughter and I had the studio but it was still quite large and comfortable. There are many ammenities at this hotel. The breakfast is plentiful and has many options, including a make your own waffle station which the kids loved. The pool is not large but was fine and there are pool towels provided. If they run out, just ask for more. The staff is wonderful and very helpful with a good sense of humor which comes in handy when dealing with groups of kids. They allowed us to put signs on our doors wishing the girls good luck at the competition. There is a Dollar Store within walking distance which had everything we needed to make Smores on the firepit at the hotel.
Parking is free on the street and I never had any trouble finding any and did not feel my car was in jeopardy of being broken into. There is a free managers happy hour with small snacks during the week which was enjoyable. The weeknight bartender, Crystal, is truly an asset to this hotel. She greeted many of the repeat clientele by name. I noticed this hotel is a nice mix of business people and families on vacation. I would definately recommend this hotel and stay here again.

This is such a great hotel. SO clean and in a wonderful location. Rooms are new or almost brand new, spacious, clean & with a beautiful lobby and wonderful pool. It is in a great location to walk to the other Savannah attractions...restaurants are closeby. Definitely give this one a try! Loved it!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the pool!!

There is nothing negative that could be posted about this place. Staff is incredible from valet, to bartender, to housekeeping and front desk. Rooms are huge and clean. The location isn't terrific but close enough to walk to everything in the daytime. We will return for sure!
