Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very friendly staff, the valet staff was exceptional. The hotel itself was nice and well kept. There was no parking, we had to park across the street in a public garage but I guess that is normal in most cities. Getting to the room was a little confusing the way the floors are set up.

Very nice river front hotel with accommodating staff and beautiful historic features. Location is perfect with easy access to restaurants, bars, riverside shops and the edge of the historic district. Just so you know, there is no on site parking and you'll be directed to a public parking garage across the street after unloading your baggage. Enjoyed our stay and...

We just returned home from our trip to Savannah for our anniversary. We stayed at the River Street Inn for the weekend, and this was our second visit there. We were a little disappointed that our room was much smaller than the one we had last year, but it was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. We...

Thank you for your review. Since our building was constructed as a cotton warehouse 200 years ago, the hotel's interior construction had to adapt to the original layout of the building. All of our rooms are not cookie cutter/identical as in most chain hotels, that'a one of the endearing, unique features we're proud to share with our guests. We're glad...

Thank you for your review. We're pleased you enjoyed our hotel & location. With our 200 year old construction of ballast and cobble stones, it's difficult for the wifi to penetrate in certain areas of the hotel. We are most aware of it and continuously working with our internet provider to improve the strength of it. Wifi and parking garages...

River Street Inn located in the heart of the downtown district along the Savannah River waterfront with easy walking distance to the river walk with various shops, restaurants and bar, pubs and just as easy to walk to the variety of downtown district squares and historical homes. The Inn itself shows a style of class, bringing you back in time....

This hotel was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and clean and overlooked River street where you could watch the ships go by. Very convenient location. We really enjoyed the happy hour. Free appetizers and drinks and you could sit outside on the porch or by the windows. Great experience.

We had a very spacious room with a king bed. The location was awesome and an easy walk along the river to all the shops, restaurants, and bars. The service was amazing. They allowed us to check in early and we had booked and extra day and the refunded us that day. We will come back for sure.

For starters, there are a few temporary parking slots in front of the hotel, if you can find them. From Bay Street, my GPS advised me to “turn left on trail.” After going around the block 3 times, I found the trail or cobblestone lane that led to the temporary parking. You can unload, check in, and get your parking...

We appreciate your review. We of course, have no control over what anyone's GPS directs them to do and apologize if you had difficulty locating us. City ordinances are very strict regarding signage and ours is what is permitted under the law. Being that we are located in a historic district that predates the automobile and is famous for the...

My husband and myself are here for our third night, we have one more night left. This Inn is beautiful and centrally located to busy River Street.

Thank you for your review. Since our building was constructed 200 years ago as a working cotton warehouse, the Juliet style balconies were used for observing the work on the docks below, loading and unloading ballast stones from ships to replace with bales of cotton and other goods; they weren't built for leisure. We are on the National Historic Registry...
