This hotel does have a nice location on the river. When we checked in we were upgraded to a "suite". The room was horrible. There was a small window which overlooked the roof and the room was a bit shabby. The king bed was located behind a partition which had a TV mounted on it. I didn't fly to Savannah to stay in a cell. We asked the front desk for another room and we were given a room with two double beds that had a nice balcony which overlooked the river. Then I got stuck in the elevator. I knew to use the phone in the box to call for help and maintenance came and opened the door. After that - I guess they were working on the elevators- I had to walk down eight flights (with four other guests) because no elevators came to the floor.
After that little episode the elevators did work. Next, the pool area was clean but much too small for that large of a hotel and no umbrellas to sit under if you want shade. There is NO valet parking; so for $18.00 a day for parking what exactly do you get? I'm already paying to stay there. The lobby is very bare bones and the indoor pool is located in the lobby/atrium area. You can walk to the River Street shops and restaurants; but any other part of the historical district you will need a car or a cab ride. This hotel seems more suited for business travelers than a vacation. We did have services in the spa and the spa was very nice and clean. But not enough to get me to come back. The staff was pleasant and they have a nice breakfast buffet. I loved visiting Savannah, but I will stay somewhere else next time.
