Pros: Price in conjunction to location (River hotels are high in price, this one is affordable), Cleanliness, Friendly Staff, Great views, Amenities Galore! Within walking distance to River Street and Forsyth Park (couple minutes either way)
Cons: Paid Valet Parking only, Walking required (but Savannah is a walking city - Let me elaborate: You cannot just walk out of the front door and be in the hustle and bustle of Bull Street or River Street, you do have to take some scenic walks)
Review: We have stayed in this hotel twice. The first time we stayed, we stayed in a normal guest room. It was within our price point, and we did not want to spend the hundreds of dollars needed to stay at the one's on the river. We wanted convenience, but did not want to pay absurd prices. The MLK Boulevard is extremely busy at all times of the day, so that might be an issue; however, once in your room, you hear absolutely nothing from the ground floor. The hotel had an extremely spacious bathroom! We had the king sized bed room and it came with a nice addition of a sofa. I like hotel rooms that offer this, as I don't always want to "sit" on the bed. The windows do open a smidgen, so it offers good winter air if you want, but you will hear the traffic
The second time, we stayed in one of their suites. The suite is extremely large. We had a sofa, 2 chairs, wet bar, separate living area from the master bedroom which had standard kind bed with chaise lounge. This offered more freedom plus a balcony. It was higher in price, but we definitely got what we paid for. I don't think we could have received the same level of luxury staying at a hotel on the river. We like to sit outside and chat on the balcony at night, so this offered us a great outdoor get away with the conveniences of home.
There is a bar downstairs that operates at certain hours. There is also a great italian restaurant down the street. Within walking distance, there is endless possibilities. There is a great pool area. Everything is gated, and with valet, the lobby provides excellent security, we have never been accosted or seen any homeless. Parkers (Convenient/Gas store) is right around the corner for Beer or necessities.
The pool area is out in the back within a privacy fence/gate. There is also a courtyard that I have seen many a people sitting and enjoying the courtyard (I have never seen that happen at hotels). The Lounge area near the lobby is great too. They provide comfortable seats and a television. Again, I have seen more than one traveler enjoying this area. There is a basic gym, no frills. There is also an indoor jacuzzi, which is great, but echo's quite a bit!
There is a concierge available, but we have never used that service.
I would highly recommend this hotel
