The Foley Inn is a wonderful place to stay. The location is great....in the heart of the historic district, right off of Chippewa Square. It is less than a 10 minute walk to pretty much anywhere downtown. The staff is great, especially Jason, who is warm and very knowledgeable about Savannah....(great recommendations: a BBQ place right around the corner (Angel's) and not-to-miss ice cream at Leopold's). He also directed us to the lower priced trolley tour, and it was more than sufficient for our needs.
The Inn itself is lovely, and while it is somewhat pricey, the price seems to be in line with the other Inns around town. Savannah is not cheap for either hotels or restaurants. The public areas (lobby/breakfast area) were small but quite comfortable; we enjoyed hanging around downstairs before our day started or sitting there for a few minutes when we returned from our activities at the end of the day (with a glass of complimentary port wine, of course!).
We stayed in room 204 (Stafford)...great view of the Square from the balcony. The bed was comfortable, it had wireless internet and cable TV, and the bathroom was roomy and well appointed. The public spaces in the Inn were well maintained, but could probably use a little touch of updating (newer carpet,newer upholstery), but that is an extremely minor issue.
Breakfast (included) was good. Choice of two hot breakfasts or cereal, and excellent coffee. Not gourmet, but very good for a location without a full-service restaurant. You do need to select your time of breakfast the night before, as well as inside vs outside, but this planning helped us get out of bed on time so that we could start our day.
Parking is not really an issue....there is parking around the Inn on the street, and you pay $12 for a 48 hour permit to park anywhere in Savannah. We got a space right in front of the Inn, so we were a little lucky. There is a loading/unloading zone where you can unload your luggage. We wouldn't have minded parking farther away if we had to; we understood that we were staying at a place downtown w/ no parking lot. If we wanted a parking lot, we would have stayed at the Hyatt or Marriott.
Would stay here again next time we are in Savannah!
