Our first visit to Savannah was enhanced by our stay at this great, guest oriented hotel. Location could not have been better, and the combination of history and modern appointments was terrific. We really enjoyed the complimentary Happy Hour with the wonderful views of ships entering and leaving the harbor. We needed a lift to our Thanksgiving dinner, and Steve,... More

Fun, fun, fun hotel! The room was bright and relatively spacious with floor to ceiling windows and a great balcony overlooking the river. A perfect perch for the Christmas boat parade and people watching on River Street. Beds were comfortable and the ancient fireplace added a nice touch. I put a crackling fire video from YouTube on my laptop and... More

Amazing! Hands down. My favorite place I have ever stayed overnight. The lobby to the rooms was incredible. Reminded me of an old 60s/90s Christmas movie scene. The staircases were something I have never seen before and was thrilled to have gotten to stay here. The rooms were old and filled with history. Brick walls, but still very modern. The... More

This hotel is right on River Street. It was a little hard to find off of River Street but easy enough once you figure out Bay Street entrance! I was worried it would be loud as River Street seems a little like Bourbon Street but I was pleasantly surprised how quiet it was. The room we had was so cute...... More

Loved this hotel. So much history in it and it shows. Brick walls, archways, hardwood floors etc. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was Not included, but a wine & cheese hour was. The location is great with numerous restaurants nearby. This was such a wonderful place to stay. I highly recommend it to all.
