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.

prime location. Close to Savannah Smiles, River St, and City Market. Clean hotel with excellent service. Offered to fill our cooler with ice for a day trip to Tybee Island. Gave us a grab and go bag for breakfast

I needed a last minute room, late night on a holiday weekend. I was lucky enough to go find The BW still had a room available. The check in experience was seamless and the staff so very helpful, even late night and last minute. My room was clean, spacious and had a beautiful view of the Talmadge Bridge. I absolutely would return and recommend a… Read more

If you need a room and don’t want to pay much and don’t care about anything like the loud construction then this is an ok place. Full review... We stayed there 4 nights, myself and my teenage daughter. The room was not cleaned once. I’m good with not making the beds but no clean towels and they didn’t change the trash.

If you need a room and don’t want to pay much and don’t care about anything like the loud construction then this is an ok place. Full review... We stayed there 4 nights, myself and my teenage daughter. The room was not cleaned once. I’m good with not making the beds but no clean towels and they didn’t change the trash. It was very loud in the morning, which was made tolerable by the sound machine that was in the room and having the fan from the AC on. Oh and bonus...you get to pay $22 a night for parking in a lot that is not secure and you can’t even park near your room. Seems to be a half way decent neighborhood but I live near Detroit so don’t base that on my review. The last night the construction workers that were staying their decided to have a karaoke party in the parking lot, again this didn’t effect me because we were far enough away but I could only imagine the people close to that were to happy. As for the room. It was decent nothing fancy wasn’t gross but wasn’t the nicest. Based on the look of the outside I was pleasantly surprised by the inside of the room. Read less

The room was clean and in a good location to be able to walk just about everywhere. One lamp had a USB port which was great for us as we forgot a charging block. The one night we turned the tv on it cut in and out- it was satellite so likely a weather related issue. The blackout curtain was nice to have. Seemed like a safe enough place- we had no… Read more
The room was clean and in a good location to be able to walk just about everywhere. One lamp had a USB port which was great for us as we forgot a charging block. The one night we turned the tv on it cut in and out- it was satellite so likely a weather related issue. The blackout curtain was nice to have. Seemed like a safe enough place- we had no issues during our stay. Parking is a little tight and given that it's $22 a day I would have liked it to of at least been fenced in, but they did claim that it was patrolled. Due to Coronavirus the pool and fitness center were closed and there was no breakfast. They also did not clean the room during our stay (3 nights). We were fine hanging our towels and reusing, but if you were staying a longer time you may need to request additional towels. I suggest requesting an extra blanket at check in. All we had was a thin blanket between two flat sheets. Read less

DO NOT pay extra to get less! The COVID-19 notations online of what wasn't available did not include pool or breakfast. They actually still advertise them. However, once there you are told the pool is not open. Staff stated none were allowed to be open, yet other hotels in the area were open. Just be honest about the reason.

DO NOT pay extra to get less! The COVID-19 notations online of what wasn't available did not include pool or breakfast. They actually still advertise them. However, once there you are told the pool is not open. Staff stated none were allowed to be open, yet other hotels in the area were open. Just be honest about the reason. Breakfast consisted of a small muffin, Mandarin orange, and maybe a water in a brown sack. Those who were lucky enough to get a water did not get a cold one. On the bright side, the linens, bathroom and desk tops were clean in the room. The hotel is close to a lot of stores and restaurants besides the historic factor. Area questionable after dark. I can't remember when I have stayed at a BW before but this will bethe last. Not a fan! Read less
