Holiday Inn Express Savannah-Historic District

Reviewed April 28, 2014

We have been to Savannah quite a few times and have to say that this hotel, for us, was the best location yet. A very easy walk to just about everywhere in the historic district. Easy parking. As we are IHG Platinum members, we could park for $15.00 with valet, which is worth the value. Give them the car and be done with it.

Check in was very busy. Things went fine though as room was ready. We were greeted as Platinum members and given a snack as our amenity for being Platinum. This was a bit of a surprise to us since many hotels give something a bit more than just a rice krispie bar, but many of the hotels have a bar or restaurant so offer something free there. As this was an Express, they did not have that option. We had booked a king corner suite and that was what we were given. Once again, not complaining as it was a great room, but most of the time we are given an upgrade as Platinum.

OK done with my minor issues, everything else here is great! Love location. We could view both the river and the street side by the Hampton across the street. If you can get a corner king, on one of the higher floors.....get it! Liked having a wet bar with refrig in the room as we did have a couple drinks relaxing in our room.

Breakfast room is good. Nice options and service. Not that crowded. Lots of people coming and going but nothing that can't be handled as we had no problems getting food or a seat.

Elevator was always busy and had to wait for it going and coming but since we were on vacation, this was not much of a problem.

Concierge was very friendly and helpful to those who stopped by. We did not as we are familiar with the area, but were always greeted warmly.

Very nice pool for a Holiday Inn Express. We went there on the sunny, warm day we had and enjoyed it. Could look over the edge and watch the freighters leaving. Had plenty of seating. A very nice covered area for a group to sit and talk. Would have liked to have more towels. We went to work out in the morning and there were no towels at that time. When we came back for the pool area, there were a few towels but noticed later in the day, none were there again. As this was early in the season, would have to assume this gets better as it gets busier at the pool/work out area.

Overall, I would return to this property. Great room, great views and great location.

Have to put in a plug for a terrific restaurant just a short walk from the hotel, 17 Hundred 90 is not only a restaurant but also a historic inn that is supposedly haunted by friendly ghosts also.
We had dinner here one night and it was terrific! Loads of excellent food for very reasonable prices in a "rat pack" type atmosphere. Piano player in the corner playing old tunes. We were waiting for Frank Sinatra to come out! It was fun as something different from the normal options.
And, the drinks were extremely reasonably priced too which is something you don't find in a tourist city. So go there if you like something like I described as you will not be disappointed!

Pulled up to valet the three off them are just standing there with their faces hanging out. Check in easy room nice but be sure to ask for high floor I had nice view of parking garage. The air conditioner not so good either but I could have asked I guess. Overall it is a nice place.

Property is nicely situated in the Savannah historic district within easy walking distance to most everything you would want to do there. The room was good but during our visit one of the elevators was out of service causing long backups for the one remaining elevator. Strangely the desk was often unattended, we had poor service at the small bar near the lobby and the valet service was very slow. For the price, service should have been much better.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this hotel. From the moment that we arrived the staff was very helpful and even arranged for us to check in a little early. The location of the hotel is ideal and you are able to walk to all the sights in Savannah. The hotel is located across the street from the riverfront and the trolley also stops outside. The room was very clean and breakfast in the morning was good also. The concierge was helpful and I would recommend taking a trolley tour to orientate you to the beautiful city. The rooftop pool was nice and gave you a nice view of the city, but the weather was too cold for us to really enjoy it. We would definitely return to this hotel on our next trip to Savannah!

Nice hotel and great room. The hotel directly in the city center within walking distance to everything worth seeing. There is also a troley passing directly without the hotel that runs a circular line in the center. It runs about every 30 minutes and until 6pm. Parking is adjacent to hotelet, at an additional cost. The breakfast was good to be of continental type. Very friendly and service oriented staff.

We arrived late on our way to Florida and were greeted by two very friendly young ladies at the front desk! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable! The view looking out to the river was beautiful! We were on the 3rd floor right behind the streetlight which was rather bright, but that's ok!! :) The concierge was so helpful and got us reservations on the horse ride tour which was a quick way to hit all the tops spots around town. Although I would recommend the tour companies having a separate ride for people with children. I loved the décor of the hotel and would most certainly stay there again! It was in walking distance of all kinds of shops, restaurants and sightseeing!

Room Tip: Try to get a room that is higher up than the street lights! LOL

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Holiday Inn Express in the historic district of Savannah. Everything was in walking distance - great location! Our room was clean and updated. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome and the pool and hot tub on the rooftop were added bonus. Thought the price was a little high but I think it was because we stayed over Easter. Free breakfast was great - pancakes, scrambled cheese eggs, bacon, biscuits, gravy, muffins, etc. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Would stay higher up. We were on the 2nd floor and had a view of the river but would have liked to...
