“Good launching pad to Savannah”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Even though it's on the perimeter of the historic district, everything you would want to see in Savannah is within a walk. The visitor center/museum and tour bus terminal is right across the road and the staff are friendly and helpful with an in-house tour booking service. Valet parking only with a $15/day surcharge. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with vanilla chain-hotel decor. One minor niggle with the plumbing was fixed promptly and efficiently. There are a wide choice of nice places to eat within a short walk. Breakfast is an extra cost option and from what we saw, isn't worth it. Take a walk, work up an appetite and enjoy a real breakfast at Clarys on Abercorn Street. .

This hotel was really nice especially being a Courtyard. It was clean and conveniently located close to the historic district. The only thing I would advise if that you cannot walk stairs request to stay in the hotel and not the cottages. There was no elevator and my sister had problems walking up stairs. I ended up have to carry all our bags up and down! The staff was nice and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again.

The location of the hotel is good. It was easy to find and access from SAV airport. It is a 10 minute walk from the Courtyard to Wright Square and about a 15 minute walk to City Market /Ellis Square. There are also 2 DOT Shuttle stops within a half block of the hotel.
The Hotel lobby renovation has been completed and it is very nice. Coffee and ice water were available throughout the day for guests. Another reviewer had stated that there was only one elevator. There are 2 more that perhaps they did not see as they are on the ends of the hallways. The room itself was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The bathroom floor was probably the only thing that looked like it still needed to be updated (a few cracked tiles ) The bathroom did have a shower head placed high enough for taller people and good water pressure. There was no in -room refridgerator.
While there were no vending machines, there is an area near the front desk where snacks etc. could be purchased.
The patio and pool area are nicely landscaped. In Savannah, making a get away from a slow/nonexistent spring, it was a great place to read and relax. The pool is probably 20 feet x 10 feet with a maximum depth of 4 feet. The kids seemed to enjoy it but the adults who took a dip did not seem to linger in the water that most agreed was cold. The pool area has about 8 chaise lounge chairs and two round tables with 4 chairs each. While that's not a lot, guests seem to keep rotating through the area. I never saw anyone not find a place to sit who was looking for one.
The breakfast buffet was standard fare : yougurt, waffles, eggs, bacon etc. I do have to applaud the breakfast seating area. It was nice with plenty of tables and chairs. No stress trying to find a place to eat.
What really sets this hotel apart,though, is the staff. They were all very friendly and accomodating. The Vallet team was outstanding. We appreciated that we were allowed to park our car in the ramp even though we arrived a few hours before we were able to check in.
Nearby, there is a CVS Pharmacy on the Corner of Wright Square . We also would recommend meals at The Distillery (accross the street), Goose Feathers Cafe and Bakery (near Ellis Squre) and a tour with Savannah Belle Walking Tours. Oh, and if you have a sweet tooth, check out Savannah Candy Kitchen at City Market for wonderful pralines and salt water taffy made on site.
We would absolutely stay here again !

Thank you for your review! Yes, the lobby renovation has been completed! It is beautiful and very unique. Thank you for your kind words about our staff and the patio area is one of my favorite places at our hotel. Right now everything is in bloom and the aroma of beautiful blooming flowers emanates from the courtyard.

Thank you for staying with us and I hope to see you again soon.

Stayed over the St. Patrick's day weekend, pretty close to everything. Amazing, friendly people make this place one you want to come back to. Rooms were comfortable, coffee in the lobby every morning and someone with a smile wanting to help was very nice. Sit by the lobby bar or by the fireplace after walking miles around town.... definitely enjoyed it

Stayed five nights at the hotel. While not a fancy place it was very clean, free wi-fi and a good location for walking downtown or hopping on a trolley tour of the city. What stands out is the staff here. Everyone we encountered was extremely courteous and friendly. Very, very nice folks at this hotel.

Our group of 43 stayed here two nights. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The requested "special needs" were met. The staff was very friendly, courteous and attentive. The breakfast was wonderful. There was nothing else one could want on a breakfast menu. We will definitely stay here again.

Overall, this was a good visit. The hotel staff were solid: friendly, helpful, and engaging. The location is on the edges of the historic district, but still within walking distance of the river and *very* close to two of the Dot stops (free historic district bus). The room was, basic, but clean. The bed seemed older, but was comfortable. The couch in the room was a bit hard. The biggest downside is that the hotel only has one elevator and it's used for both guests and as the service elevator. This isn't a problem, but it does mean that at some points during the day it can be slow (and it's already a slow elevator). Even so, this is a quibble, and I have no major complaints about my stay.

BONUS: the hotel is across the street from The Distillery, an amazing brewpub!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from MLK.
