The Comfort Suites is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Savannah. It's a bit cheaper as it's not in the heart of the area, and you do have to walk through a small area that is a bit on the fringes. Fine during the day (and really at night, too) but I did not want our teen girls to do it alone at night.
Parking is great, and it's either free or pretty cheap compared to most of the other hotels in the area.
The staff seemed helpful and friendly. We liked that they had luggage carts available.
The rooms were about what you would expect for this price. We liked the sitting area; the sofa could have been pulled out to a bed if we'd needed. We did not like the fact that the toilet was either stained or damaged so it looked stained; that was kind of unpleasant, and the A/C, while it was cold, was somewhat blocked by the bed closest to it, so the air did not spread out as well as it should have in the room. The WiFi is free and great.
We were near the elevator; that's a bad place to be as the elevator is the slowest I've ever experienced in any hotel, which meant people stood in the hall and talked - loudly - at all hours waiting for it.
The fitness center is small; a treadmill, an elliptical and a bike. I'd have loved to see a few weights or a multipurpose machine - but it was clean and the equipment and TV worked well. The pool and hot tub are not very private - they are indoors and right at the front off the lobby - and looked a little small, but were pretty popular.
We used the washer and dryer; they were reasonable and worked well; usually these dryers are almost worthless, but this one was great. The front desk did not have laundry soap, however, which was kind of a pain. Maybe sell it in the snack machine in the same room?
I thought breakfast was good; pretty typical stuff.
We liked that the tour we selected picked up at the hotel; that was really convenient.
We loved Savannah and Tybee Island and we'll be back. I might pick one of the more historic hotels closer in or a B&B, just for a new experience, but this was a good choice on a busy holiday weekend, and was available at the last minute when our previous plans did not work out.
