“Great location for Savannah”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

This is a great location for a few days in Savannah. You can walk to most things. There is a nice view of the river. The hotel is decorated in a most interesting way. The room was interesting and roomy.

Though I am a Life Platinum, this was my first stay in an Autograph Hotel, Marriott's alternate strategy into the boutique hotel business after the limited success of the Edition brand. This property is owned by Kessler and it is their name on the hotel, amenities, etc.

We had to press a little bit to get our room upgrade but Ann Samuel, the Front Desk Supervisor, came through with exactly what we wanted... a top floor king looking at the river. There is no concierge lounge so if you're Gold or Platinum you are given a choice of Marriott Reward points in lieu of breakfast or an arrival voucher.

There is a great bar on the roof that also serves food...terrific for a drink or even a sunset dinner but get there early to get a good seat.

The location is also very central, only a block from City Hall and easy walking distance to many good restaurants and sites.

Room Tip: Go for the high floor river-view rooms. Entry level is at level 4 and the top floor is level 8.

This hotel is most definitely well worth it. It is somewhat quirky for a hotel in it's decor and I mean this in only the very best way. As a designer, I was impressed with the unique bohemian touches. Perfect location, right in the River front, which is rather touristy, but you can walk a few blocks to get away from all that. The service at The Bohemian was most impressive. The employees were exceptionally polite and courteous. The room contained all the amenities and conveniences necessary. Food in the restaurant very good with lots of healthy options. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Room Tip: Waterfront view

We'd read previous TA reviews so decided to try this one out as a stylish downtown hotel for grown ups and we were really impressed

it's all valet parking being right in the historic district overlooking River St and the Savannah river and is an old converted warehouse looking building so has parking offsite. However, valet was good, quick and on our way out in a rainstorm even packed our cases into the trunk - good service. Front desk was super quick and always helpful with shopping or dining queries.

The rooftop bar is awesome and felt like we were back in Venice sipping cocktails as ships sailed by

Best of all is the stylish decor - unusual dark furniture, BOSE stereo with CD, a great bed and dark bejewelled corridors. Best of all the bathroom was huge and the walk in shower adorned with a velvet curtain (I really tried to keep it dry and hope it lasts!)

We got a great free continental breakfast as Marriott Gold members served in their waterfront riverside restaurant - really lovely. Being greedy we'd hoped for an upgrade to a river view room but didn't get it but that's not their fault! Savannah is a great quirky town, really walkable, very European feeling with a great arts community thanks to SCAD

I cannot recognise the complaints of offhand service on TA here, we had quite the opposite experience. And neither were the rooms noisy - we'd just come from a poorly sound insulated property so our nerves were raw to this but i didn't notice a peep.

We got this for a good value $269 p/n - worth every penny and more if you want a stylish grown up hotel different from a run of the mill bland place - their sister property on Forsyth looked stunning too

Room Tip: river view is excellent

We stayed three nights and couldn't have had a nicer experience. It all started with the friendly staff that greeted us at the front entry upon our arrival. Check in was a breeze and the bellman that brought our luggage to our room was cheerful and very helpful and informative since this was our first trip to Savannah. We had a fabulous corner room with floor to ceiling windows, plenty of seating room, and a roomy modern two sink bathroom. We enjoyed in room dining every morning that was brought to us promptly and was delicious. Every staff member that we came in contact with was peasant and helpful. In the late afternoon we enjoyed drinks and appetizers at the top floor restaurant and bar called Rocks. There were beautiful views of the Savannah river from the outside dining area. We are already planning to return next year.

Room Tip: Corner rooms were the best and offered the most space

During a recent visit to Savannah, our group had dinner/lunch at the Bohemian/River Street area. The valet service was awesome and very accommodating to our special needs! They assisted our group by accommodating our need for handicap parking. The concierge assisted with the delivery and pick up of an electric chair for one of the ladies in our group. The customer service provided by the valet team was exceptional! We were very pleased and wanted to share this experience with others planning to visit the Bohemian Hotel! Thank you again!

There are more negatives than positives, so let's be nice, first.

They politely welcomed us at the door, and they got us into the room early. The reception and porters were, in particular, very nice, professional and efficient.

The location of the hotel is great - on the river in the middle of everything.

There is a rooftop bar and restaurant and then another rest/bar on ground level on River street. Cool design.

Negatives

In Savannah, paying 600 dollars for a hotel room is a joke.

The room (at least ours) smelled like gerbil or hamster food. Strange.

The room walls were thin, you could hear neighbors and people on the street, especially around the weekend.

I could smell people on our floor smoking pot (maybe that should go back in the positives).

Room service was hit or miss - we only ordered one meal - crab cake and the house fries. Crab cake was great, the fries were blech and nto what we ordered (and we asked twice if they were, ,in fact truffle fries).

The valets were a little strange, they had perma smiles on and their eyes looked a little vacant. Kind of spooked us out.

In short, I would not stay here again, but it is still better than the Westin.

Room Tip: If you choose the river side, make sure you ask for a very high room (noise). If noise is an issue...

Dear Crabjunkie,

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay. I am glad to hear that you felt our staff was friendly and professional, and that you were able to enjoy our popular restaurant and rooftop bar. We will definitely share these praises with our staff. I am, however, sorry for the problems that you experienced, and that you did not enjoy your overall visit. We will review the smells that you mentioned with our housekeeping team, as hamster food is certainly not a scent we come across often, and have shared your room service comments with the culinary team. I am sorry that these incidents disrupted your stay.
We would like to gain your trust again by welcoming you back on your next visit to Savannah. Please let me know if I could be of any assistance in making a future reservation.

Regards,

Kurt Englund
General Manager
