The hotel staff was great, the location was great but I do have two beefs.

One is that we could barely get the wireless internet. We never have any trouble in any other hotel so it is not our computer. We were able to go down and use the hotel computers when we needed to.

The other beef is that there is no water pressure and no hot water. We turned the hot water on and waited 5-10 mins only to have luke warm water.

Parking, The hotel charges $15 for valet parking. There is a public garage not more than 10 feet away. You can unload and load up in front of the hotel and then park next store. We learned that if you go to the Parking lot office (Around the corner of parking garage) you can get a 48 hour parking pass for $12. The pass is good for in and out priveliges and is valid for 4 other parking garages and for parking meters. Such a deal.

The Old Pink house is only a few feet away - you must eat here at least once.

Customer focused staff made our visit quite nice. The hotel is clean, organized, and well situated to the historic district and the river front. Many great restaurants are close by and within walking distance.

This hotel is right across the street from the Riverwalk. Perfect location. I was pleasantly suprised by this HI Express. It is new, and the rooms are modern. If you can do without a Riverview, the price is great! We plan to stay here again upon our return to Savannah. This was our first time to Savannah, and 2 days was not enough! If you do not stay on the side to view the river, there is a rooftop pool and lounging area. This overlooks the river, and is a must see!

We stayed here Saturday and Sunday night over Memorial Day weekend. Great breakfast, cranberry, orange and apple juce, different types of teas, coffee, flavored creamers, biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, toasts, muffins, bananas , apples, etc...
Great view of Savannah River from rooftop pool, hot tub was broken, Was advised it was leaking to a lower floor.

Hotel is perfect location for exploring the river area. But be careful walking there. It has very steep steps ging down there and is slippery when raining. We watched ships go by and saw many boats moored downtown. The steep steps are going to the river, not at the hotel, fyi.

Hotel bed was comfortable, plenty of pillows, no room safe. Guys at the front desk were fun, they always welcomed us back to the hotel when we arrived back.

Hotel charges for parking. Go next door and pay $5.00 for all day, in and out, don't pay at the hotel.

Husband and I spent 3 nights here in late May and could not have been any happier with our experience. Hotel is beautiful, very clean, fantastic location and the staff were beyond helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Savannah, who wants to be immersed in the Historic District!

We loved this hotel. The location was excellent for walking everywhere in Savannah. We walked to great restaurants on the waterfront, in the Historic area and all the way to Forsythe Park passing through all the squares. We got a corner room with a view of the Factors Walk and the River. It was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The front desk staff were delightful and very helpful at recommending restaurants, especially Wasabi Sushi!! Make sure you take in the view from the rooftop pool area!
Our last night we walked to the Bohemian which has a rooftop bar and had dinner and drinks while watching the sunset - it was an amazing last night in Savannah.
