We stayed at this hotel, based on reviews from TripAdvisor. Once again, TripAdvisor came through for us! This was our first visit to Savannah.
It's more expensive to stay in the historic district, but worth it to not have to drive from somewhere else and try to find parking--and then pay for it. We paid for hotel valet parking, instead of parking in the garage across the street, because we felt it would be safer. We never used our car, and were able to walk everywhere we needed to go.
The concierge at the hotel recommended we take the Old Town Trolley hop-on/hop-off tour. There are 2 other trolley companies, and she felt this was the best one because all of their trollies take the same route and the drivers (who are the tour guides) are very informative. She gave us a discount, and we were very pleased with the Old Town Trolley tour. The pleasant surprise with any trolley company is that the trolley stop is right outside the hotel, which was very convenient.
This hotel is across from the main eating/shopping area of historic Savannah. We just walked across the street, and took the steps (an elevator is available) down to the river walk area.
Along the river walk, we ate at Tubby's Seafood (outside patio is available), The Cotton Exchange, and Boar's Head restaurants. All were recommended by friends, and we were very pleased. We took the free water taxi between 3 hotels and the convention center.
The front-desk staff were all very friendly. Gerry, the manager, graciously helped us move to another room. (See our Room Tips comment.) The free breakfast is great, and has a wide variety of food.
