Best Western Savannah Historic District

Savannah, Georgia

The hotel

In the stunningly preserved historic district of Savannah, you’re just a stroll from Franklin Square, Ellis Square, and Telfair Square, and from waterfront hangouts like River Street Viewpoint, River Street Market Place, and Rousakis Riverfront Plaza. But, when you’re not off seeing the sights, you can be bathing in the outdoor pool, with its red-brick wall surround giving it that true ‘urban oasis’ feel; or sinking into the leather sofas around the fire in the lobby. Dedicated to giving you a good night’s sleep, you’ll even find a white noise machine and ear plugs in your guestroom, along with free WiFi. And, when you wake up, you can head straight to the breakfast room for a complimentary feast featuring local favourites like scrambled eggs, sausages, biscuits, and gravy, alongside global additions like hot Belgian waffles with scrummy toppings.

We just spent three nights at the BW Savannah in the Historic District. I couldn't believe that they had a (wonderful) concierge to help you with all kinds of reservations. The staff are immensely helpful and so kind. Breakfast was great - lots of options for both healthy and hearty eaters. The coffee was very tasty. You sure can't beat the price. You're near the river and near the historic squares. If you take the Trolley, it stops very close to the hotel. Lulu's, a splendid place to get the best chocolate treats, whether cakes or chocolate martinis, is just nearby - definitely a plus! We will sure stay here again. Read less

The price was great, considering the wonderful complimentary breakfast and the hotel's location.The staff was friendly and helpful. The concierge helped schedule a tour, that picked us up at the hotel door, and also pointed out what we could accomplish in one day. The hotel charges for parking but let us keep our car there through the afternoon.The hotel is adjacent to the City Market and walking distance to the River Street waterfront. Lots of great restaurants nearby. We rode the the Hop On, Hop Off tour bus the entire route and than went around again stopping at several landmarks and also at Paula's Dean's "Lady and Sons" Restaurant. Great southern lunch buffet.

Some UGA Students were at our hotel. They got in Friday and Saturday overnight at around 2:30. They were screaming to each other across the hotel, and down to the street to friends that would pass by. They were playing extremely loud, vulgar music, and slammed into my door. I called down to the front desk and was told that the security guard would… Read more
Some UGA Students were at our hotel. They got in Friday and Saturday overnight at around 2:30. They were screaming to each other across the hotel, and down to the street to friends that would pass by. They were playing extremely loud, vulgar music, and slammed into my door. I called down to the front desk and was told that the security guard would get them back in their rooms, but the noise continued until around 4:45. Saturday night when it happened again and I called the front desk and nothing was happening, my husband then called down and soon thereafter the noise died down, but was still audible until around 4:45. I understand kids being kids. but the hotel should have taken care of this before we had to make two calls! And after the issue on Friday night, they should have been more prepared for the issue on Saturday night! Read less

Property location is great for exploring Savannah. Staff is very helpful. The property is showing age, but is under a major renovation. Parking is additional $21 but that is to be expected in this area. Public parking is reasonable, if you can find it.

The breakfast selection was awesome - much better than the typical "free breakfast" that's included with many hotels in this chain. The in-room coffee was very good (if you're a coffee drinker like me, that's important!) The staff… Read more
Location was great for access to River Street shops and restaurants. The rooms were very clean and bed was comfy.

The in-room coffee was very good (if you're a coffee drinker like me, that's important!) The staff was very friendly and helpful. Some reviews stated street noise was an issue - I actually thought hotel was fairly quiet. Will definitely stay here again. Read less
