I booked this stay just a few hours before I arrived through Hotwire. I knew I was taking a chance on what I would get since I didn't get to pick hotel, room or location. We were in historic Savannah but was hoping for closer to the waterfront. The hotel is beautiful upon enter and through out. We received a room on the 8th floor so the view was wonderful. My husband enjoyed the balcony but would have been nice to have had a chair of some sort. Myself being afraid of heights didn't go past the door so I was fine without one. I was disappointed that it had two double beds but that is my fault for using Hotwire and not being able to specify what I wanted. The beds though we're very soft and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the valets go above by recommending where to eat upon arrival and removed the old soda bottle from my console upon departure. The parking cost though should be included in the room price in my opinion but at $20 is a lot cheaper than the cost in New Orleans. The walk to the waterfront is manageable if your are in decent health but would be quite difficult otherwise. Discovered the Sorrel- Weeds home on the next corner so that was a plus. Either direction you traveled had wonderful historic parks and historic buildings. Although I did get told that I was staying in the most hated hotel because it had replaced the original historic Desoto hotel instead of remodeling it after purchased. All in all a nice stay just don't use Hotwire to book and don't tell the locals where you are staying.
