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 room. 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 made a reservation for a one night stay during our travels. We arrived after a 12 hour drive.only to find every door locked. We spoke to a painter who explained the hotel was closed. When we told him we had a reservation he said he would see what he could do. He found the front desk clerk getting into her car. She returned and finally checked us in. I spoke with the concierge in the morning who couldn't believe it. She arranged for me to speak to the head front desk person who seemed indifferent. She wouldn't do anything for us. Upon arrival at our final destination I called Expedia who contacted the hotel on our behalf. They got back to me in a timely manner and told us the hotel wasn't willing to do anything for us. I then contacted Best Western's Head office. The hotel said they tried to contact me but there was no record of a call on my phone. I emailed the hotel but got no response. I contacted Head Office again who advised the hotel was not willing to do anything for me. We stayed at 3 best Westerns during our trip. The other two had great staff who bent over backwards for you. That is what I am used to in a Best Western. I will no longer book a Best Western or book any rooms for my clients ( I am a travel agent) I travel extensively and book many hotels but no more Best Western for me or my clients!!! This took a total of 41 days to get no where!!! Read less

at first, we were concerned about the noise since its right next to a military base and the planes come and go all day. However, they seem to stop at night which was fine.

at first, we were concerned about the noise since its right next to a military base and the planes come and go all day. However, they seem to stop at night which was fine. However, the one night we were there, they did not clean our room. when I went to the front desk to reprogram out keys (no explanation why or how they got erased) the clerk pulled out a loose leaf book and pointed to where the maid indicated that our do not disturb sign was out. Certainly it was, but when we left, we took it off the door. Apparently, no one ever checked back. To make matters worse, she had an attitude. Read less

It might be a nice hotel but there are inconsistent practices. Book at your peril - they won’t refund your money Due to changes in my travel plans I had to book and cancel this hotel twice over approximately the same period. As confirmed on the BW website, there were two confirmation numbers and two cancellation numbers. I cancelled in accordance with the BW terms and conditions but have been charged a $107 no show. In protracted correspondence with BW customer care not one member of staff has looked accurately at the record showing two cancellations. In one email, BW says the hotel held the room ”in good faith”. Well, in good faith, I cancelled but still they hold on to my money. They say there was only one cancellation. I have provided BW with screenshots from its own website showing two cancellation confirmations but still they refuse the evidence in front of their eyes in black and white. DO NOT RESEVE A ROOM AT THIS HOTEL IF THERE IS A RISK OF CANCELLATION. THEY WILL NOT REFUND YOU EVEN IF YOU CANCEL IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Sent from my iPad Read less

We spent 2 nights here. Our room was recently renovated & the beds were comfortable. The hotel is perfectly located to explore the Riverfront, City Market & the historic squares by foot. The breakfast was delicious...,and offered something for everyone. Many thanks to Miss Mary, the concierge, who helped us reorganize our travel plans which were stymied by Mother Nature. It rained, hard, for most of the 48+ Hours we were here. Instead of exploring the city on foot, she lined us up with a great tour group & recommended several great restaurants.... ensuring our brief visit was a success. Read less
