“A good hotel with a wonderful location”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

The Planters Inn has been through a lot of refurbishments over the years – my wife compared it very favourably to a stay she had 30 years ago! But the building (and the location in the historic downtown preservation area) limit what can be done. The building footprint is very cramped and that is reflected on the inside. The foyer/reception area is comfortably furnished, but when guests turn up for complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoon, available chairs are at a premium. There is no convenient place in the foyer for the luggage trolley and the breakfast room on the mezzanine floor is cramped.

The rooms are well furnished and carefully maintained, but more cramped than a more modern hotel (with no space to put away suitcases). Our room looked out onto a parking garage, but this location is the middle of a bustling city – and it was a quiet place in spite of that.

The extremely busy breakfast room offered a fairly typical hotel buffet with a limited selection. I assume that there is inadequate kitchen space for anything more adventurous. If you are picky about your breakfast, I recommend going round the corner to Henry’s.

To compensate for the tight squeeze – the staff are very friendly and helpful. Valet parking is efficient and speedy. There is a real ambiance and character about the place. We certainly enjoyed our stay in Savannah at the Planters Inn over Christmas.

Met and exceeded our expectations. While we did not see any ghosts (ok, not expecting that one) we had a lovely room in one of the most beautiful and classically Savannah hotels imaginable. The happy hour every evening allowed us to mingle with other fun and interesting guests, and the hostess Karen was awesome ! She was charming, informative, and conversational, helping us learn so much more about where to go and what to do. The hotel was perfectly centrally located on Reynolds Square and within walking distance of everything we wanted to do, including the Olde Pink House restaurant next door. And the hotel was so gorgeously decorated for Christmas - we will head back again soon because this hotel made our trip romantic and special.

Room Tip: Overlooking the square is best

We arrived very late and were greeted with open arms. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was yummy, even if the room it was served in was cramped.
The location is excellent for exploring Savannah and I very much appreciated the cheese and wine reception from 5:30pm.
Overall I was impressed. The bathroom was a little dated and the plug on the bath didn't fully close.
I would stay here again.

Lobby small but lovely and decorated very nicely for Christmas. Staff was consistently very helpful and pleasant. Room very nice and quiet and tastefully decorated. Quiet. Great location. There are no views from rooms - rooms face a parking garage. In the publicity photo it's only the portion with white 'awning' area that's the actual building. May be a few rooms facing the square, but most do not! Breakfast buffet was a real disappointment. We'd stay again, but not eat there.

Room Tip: Ask if there are any rooms facing Reynolds Square. Not sure they exist, but otherwise you're lo...

Alternate review title: 'Rooms That Are Lit Up All Night By a Noisy Parking Garage.' Only book a room here if you're willing to make a phone reservation ensuring that you don't end up facing the brightly lit, noisy parking garage where the curse words of drunk people echo loudly at 2:00 am, and 3:00 am, and 4:00 am. I don't know why they don't have curtains that block the bright light shining all night from the garage, but they don't. If you're the manager and you're reading this, selling your worst rooms on Priceline instead of addressing the issues with those rooms is how you turn potential life-long customers into people that give you bad reviews on Tripadvisor (i.e., not a good long-term strategy).

Room Tip: Only book if you're willing to call on the phone to get a room away from the parking garage

I have been trying to purchase a gift certificate for my in-laws and I cannot get them to send it I have used the website called twice and left emails for the manager and cannot get the certificates I have been trying since the day after Thanksgiving. I had to give them an IOU for half this half of their gift. I wish I had read the review discussing the administrative issues before I chose Planters Inn. The lack of service from the front office has been of proportionate measures.

We are frequent visitors to Savannah, as our son lives there and have stayed at many of the places in the Historic District. This was our first time at the Planters Inn. This is a hotel in an older building that has been kept up nicely. My understanding is the last addition was done about 150 years ago.

The location at Reynolds Square is perfect for tourists who want to walk the historic district. It is only a block from all the shopping on Broughton or Bay Street (and down the stairs to River Street). It is also a very short walk to City Market.

The lobby is beautifully restored. They have a nice wine and cheese gathering in the lobby in the early evening which is complementary Monday thru Saturday. During our stay the lobby was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. This, along with wireless internet, are included with your stay.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Valet parking with the hotel is about $14 per night, however, one of the staff members let us know you can get a daily parking pass for about $8 a night and park at the city lot which is about two doors down just past the Pink House. This gives you covered parking and also allows you to park at most metered parking sites around the city at no charge. Breakfast is included. It is a buffet and similar to what you might see at a Holiday Inn express. Nothing special, but the price is right.

The room, is nice sized. Our room was well kept up. Outside of the bathroom, which is beautiful, the room was not real fancy. The TV is placed in an awkward position from the bed, but who comes to Savannah to watch the tube?

Our room, like many of the rooms, goes along a street which is noisy in the morning. We frequently arose to the noise of city workers or work trucks doing their work in the morning. This is a trade off for being in the middle of the historic district that people who like to sleep in may want to consider.

We got a great deal on Expedia for this hotel, incredible really for the historic district, so if you plan to go you many want to check their website to see what price they have. This type of deal was probably only available due to December being the off season, but it was nice to stay in such a great location with all the extras as a very low price.

Room Tip: This is a nice hotel for adults, but would not recomend for kids.
