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.

This hotel gave us a dirty room, which we requested to change. We wanted to cancel our other nights, but they wouldn't let us since we reserved through Orbiz. Another girl said she would cancel for us, but once they moved our room we decided to stick it out. She undid the cancellation. When we checked out, we learned they were charging us over… Read more
This hotel gave us a dirty room, which we requested to change. We wanted to cancel our other nights, but they wouldn't let us since we reserved through Orbiz. Another girl said she would cancel for us, but once they moved our room we decided to stick it out. She undid the cancellation. When we checked out, we learned they were charging us over $200 more than we reserved it for. After a battle, they did credit my card back the difference. The hotel smelled like mildew and was creepy. The only thing good was the breakfast and location. Had we known what it was like, we would gladly have paid more money to room elsewhere! Read less

... the location is great and the staff very friendly & helpful, except for the night clerk who is HORRIBLE - she was so busy playing on the computer in the back room she hardly could be bothered with a customer. The first thing she said to me was "don't come behind the desk" which I did to get her attention b/c she was so busy playing in the computer. She finally waddled out from her hideaway and again scolded me for being behind the desk. This gal doesn't know the first thing about customer service, and is a big negative factor in my experience here. The other thing that left me feeling not so great was when I arrived in my room I discovered the previous occupant's clothes still hanging in the closet - clearly the maid hadn't even looked in the closet let alone cleaned it. Yuk! All in all I think I'm being generous to give a 3-star rating. Aside from the location and the friendly daytime staff this place is a 2-star hotel at best. I wouldn't stay here again. Read less

The management and receptionests were the best. The house keeping were something to be desired!! The rooms were dirty and the beds were not cleaned! Our air conditioner didn't work and the refrigerator would not stay shut. The rooms really need an update. The location was very good. The breakfasts were execellent.
