Very nice but a bit pricey. $340.00 for 1 night included $25.00 parking. The view of the Savannah River was excellent. The room was very clean and beautiful. The rooftop bar was fantastic with a great view and awesome staff. Everything seemed to be within walking distance. Dwayne at the front desk was amazing.

Room Tip: Try to get one overlooking the river.

The hotel is beautiful, located right on the river in the heart of the Savannah historic district. There is no reason to ever get into your car during your stay, as everything you could ever want is within walking distance of just a block or 2. Beautiful riverview rooms, where you can watch the ships come into port with showers big enough to throw a party in. Very comfortable beds with ultra soft linens, and the staff all remembered my name. Best place to stay in town.

This a contemporary "boutique" style hotel, yet the rooms are spacious enough. I was very impressed with the large walk-in shower. The interior decor manages to blend a contemporary style with a feel of old-Savannah charm. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Lastly, the rooftop deck has good service, better-than-expected food, and beautiful vistas. It's a perfect place to unwind, enjoy a cocktail, and watch the sunset. Thanks for a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Go for the river view!!

Great stay! Property is located on the river front and everything is in walking distance. My first time in Savannah and will be returning. Upon arrival, the staff was great and greeted us all right away. Shannon at the front desk was super sweet and upgraded us to a balcony room. After check-in, she dropped by our room with a hand written birthday card for me with all the staff on duty signatures. What a tremendous asset to the Cotton Sail. The roof top bar had beautiful views and our server was awesome. The concierge was extremely helpful. I will definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room facing the river! Keep a eye out for the passing cargo ships!

A friend and I spent two nights in this beautiful river front hotel. We paid extra for a balcony on the river. You need to know it is a stand only balcony with barely room for two people. The view was amazing. Our room, 421, was quiet. The staff, for the most, were lovely and helpful. Patty, the concierge, is a local and the best. The rooftop bar was incredible in the evenings. A few drawbacks were no access to River Street which meant a walk and scary stairs or scarier public elevator to reach this area. Also no pool area, which may or may not be important to others. The most disturbing was that in the time we were there our room was never cleaned. We were gone all day and all evening, only hanging the "do not disturb" sign from 3-5pm while showering and dressing to go back out again. We told the front desk and had to ask twice for clean towels, shampoo and coffee (which they forgot). I asked that the manager be told, however on check out I was told by Nicole Morman, the front desk manager, she hadn't heard. She apologized and made an adjustment to our bill. I believe they are still learning how to run it correctly and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
True Luxury and Southern Hospitality in the Heart of Old Savannah. You've arrived at the Cotton Sail Hotel, a full-service boutique hotel positioned in the heart of old Savannah's National Landmark, the Historic District. Housed within a refurbished late-1800's cotton warehouse, the Cotton Sail Hotel was named as tribute to its nostalgic past. Through recent renovations, that storied past has been admiringly preserved and consciously revitalized, with our main lobby and each of our 56 well-appointed guestrooms being anchored with 200 year old heart of pine hardwood floors originating from the roof of the old cotton factory that is the Cotton Sail Hotel today. The Cotton Sail Hotel effortlessly blends traditional Savannah charm with upscale modern amenities. You'll decide whether it is our complimentary turn-down service & welcome amenities, our state of the art fitness center, the beautiful Brazilian hardwood deck that frames the front of our hotel or capturing the breath-taking views of the Savannah River while positioned on your guestroom balcony, that make the Cotton Sail Hotel Savannah's Premier Destination for Luxury Accommodations. Furthermore, you are welcomed to purchase a snack in our lobby sundry shop, utilize our business center, take your guestroom elevators down to dine at the River House Restaurant, stay in comfort and order room service or indulge in a drink and appetizer at Top Deck, one of Savannah's only roof top bars overlooking Historic Savannah and the Savannah River. Each level of the Cotton Sail brings its own indulgence: you can dine at the bottom, rest in the middle and let loose at the top. So envelope yourself in luxurious comfort and treat yourself to our countless amenities all designed with you in mind. ... more   less
