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.

So overall our trip was great. We had 5 rooms, they accomodated our request for adjoining rooms and being on a higher floor. Marie at the front desk was so helpful and friendly.

So overall our trip was great. We had 5 rooms, they accomodated our request for adjoining rooms and being on a higher floor. Marie at the front desk was so helpful and friendly. Pros: The location was perfect, right down the steps was River Street. The staff was helpful and friendly (especially Marie). The breakfast was perfect for the girls to grab a quick bite before we headed out in the morning. Cons: Our room wasn't ready at 4pm, more like 6pm and then it wasn't very clean. Used toiletries left in the shower, floor not cleaned from food, and trash not emptied in one of the trash cans. Parking was a pain if you returned after 6pm. The pool was tiny and it smelled awful at the pool area. We booked this hotel because it was in our Girl Scout budget, great location, offered free breakfast and had a pool the girls could play in. Three of those expectations were met. Read less

From the moment we entered this BW I regretted not paying for a more upscale hotel. The receptionist was more interested in her phone call than serving her patrons. No information was given...how to log into the WiFi....that there was a lift....where the amenities were located.....breakfast time etc. Then when we complained the coffee machine was… Read more
From the moment we entered this BW I regretted not paying for a more upscale hotel. The receptionist was more interested in her phone call than serving her patrons. No information was given...how to log into the WiFi....that there was a lift....where the amenities were located.....breakfast time etc. Then when we complained the coffee machine was not working we were told it would be taken care of. A day later it still did not work. When we ask for a new one or a kettle we were told with some serious attitude that there were no replacements or a kettle. Also if you do not eat pork do not get the breakfast option as your choice will be very limited. On the upside the rooms were clean and the location great. Thanks to Dion and ShaQuierra for trying to help on our last day. My advice if you can afford a little more stay elsewhere. Read less

Me and a couple friends visited Savannah for the weekend and decided to stay here as the reviews said great location which was a prime factor for us. They weren’t wrong! We were a few steps away from the city markets which is a great place to go for food, drink, shopping and the night life is fantastic! The room was clean, rather small however it did the job as an overnight stay. There was the necessities like toiletries and a fridge; might I add in the bathroom which is an interesting place to put it. The AC was fantastic and worked really well in heating or cooling the room very quickly. Staff at the front desk were very friendly and welcoming. They were helpful with lots of information and were very professional. Overall a brilliant stay! Read less

Location was perfect for our 5 night stay. However, they only left us 1 towel when they cleaned and even though we tend to use towels multiple days, the weather in the 90s required multiple showers each day and we needed replacement towels.

When we checked in the receptionist asked for a credit card for incidentals and parking. I was not asked if I wanted to park in their lot which was $22 per day. The next day we spotted several parking areas that was way less than $22 per day. The following day we were sitting in the lobby and a different receptionist told a lady about a lot that… Read more
When we checked in the receptionist asked for a credit card for incidentals and parking. I was not asked if I wanted to park in their lot which was $22 per day. The next day we spotted several parking areas that was way less than $22 per day. The following day we were sitting in the lobby and a different receptionist told a lady about a lot that was across the street that again was not $22 per day. During check-in I asked the receptionist about a room facing the back of the hotel. She said there was not one available and then assigned us our room which was directly behind a tree. For breakfast at this hotel they had waffle irons, biscuits, eggs, bacon, etc... I asked for butter for my waffle and was told, "we don't have butter. "The ONLY good thing about this hotel is that it was in the historic district and within walking distance to almost anything you need. I really didn't need the "I don't care attitudes." Since the staff didn't care, I will definitely care enough to spend my money elsewhere. Read less
