We chose to spend one night in Savannah on our way from Florida to Virginia. It was a great decision to once again patronize a Holiday Inn Express. The location is perfect for visiting the waterfront, the shopping district, and the beautiful historical houses.
As expected, the room was spotlessly clean and very well-appointed, with the exception that there was no luggage rack for a suitcase. There was, however, a small table that worked just as well. I am certain that if I had mentioned this lack, it would have been corrected immediately.
The staff were fantastic, and gave us several suggestions for sightseeing and dining. The front desk staff suggested a hop-on, hop-off style tour, since our time in the city was limited. They sold us tickets and directed us to the stop, which is just adjacent to the hotel. The valet Justin was extremely friendly and helpful in our quest for live blues music, and Becky in the bar is wonderful. She created a Cheers-like atmosphere in a rather sterile-looking space, and brought together fellow travelers and a few natives for a fun evening. The hotel has a roof top terrace with a hot tub and pool and a wonderful view - you can bring your drinks from the bar upstairs and enjoy the beautiful evening air. On first Fridays, you can view the riverfront fireworks from there.
Definitely a great place from which to venture forth in Savannah.
