We’d booked a deluxe king room overlooking the water and expected a large bright room with tall windows, as shown on the website. This is not what we got! Our room had only one narrow window, so was dark, and smaller than advertised. We arrived after a long drive, hoping to take a nap before going out. Impossible! Cleaners were extremely noisy - shouting and banging carts in the corridor outside; one even burst into the room without knocking! Would not stay here again.

Beautiful hotel in a beautiful area. Although our room was kind of small, it worked for us as it was intended to be an intimate trip. The bathroom was HUGE compared to the rest of the room. The bed was comfortable, and housekeeping always came & left by the time we returned to our room. Parking was scarce. You pretty much have to pay for valet ($30/night) or walk a mile. There is a parking deck that's pretty close, but it was full the 4days we stayed. We didn't get to visit either of the two restaurants attached to the hotel, but we did go to one of the bars near by for a super late dinner. It was ok.

Overall the stay was amazing, the hotel staff were great and we'd definitely stay again.

Great location and view

This was our third trip in 3 years. We really enjoy the full river view rooms. There is always entertainment by just looking out the window, Gigantic cargo ships gliding on the river, often a saxophone street musician, plus all of the tourists in the park and shops below. The hotel is located in a great area, easy walking distance to many restaurants, including Vic’s on the River. Leopold’s Ice cream shop, City Market, the historic squares and neat shops are in close proximity. The showers work well and the staff is always very nice. The hotel is a great value, especially if you compare it to the Charleston, SC hotels.

We arrived very early at 8am to check in. They were able to store our bags and set us up on a tour to kill time and explore the city. There was an upgrade available they gave us free of charge to a corner room facing the water, and it was ready an hour early! It was beautiful and we were really grateful as this was our first time is Savannah. The location is perfect, we were able to stop in & out to drop off bags, etc. as the day progressed. We were only there for 1 night but we enjoyed our stay and would recommend!

A Visit to historical Downtown Savannah, GA

Stayed at this property in a historic location in Savannah. While close to restaurants and other local attractions it also was not a safe or pleasant location. Walking at night we felt unsafe and were accosted by the local denizen. I questioned a police officer thinking I was overreacting. He assured me I was not overreacting and safety was a valid concern.
Moreover, the room was dark and generally inadequate. Opening the drapes to let in some light was met with homeless residents of the street in front of the building. Not a pleasant experience.
