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.

I was in town for a Convention. Prices were $240 for a $80 room. I get it, raise prices due to a events, but at least try to keep up the property. The room was in bad need of a thorough cleaning. Smelled of urine. Woke up to a drunk man passed out in front of my door. It took 45 minutes and two calls to get security to come. Breakfast was not… Read more

Smelled of urine. Woke up to a drunk man passed out in front of my door. It took 45 minutes and two calls to get security to come. Breakfast was not good, out of everything, including coffee creamer, only bread, and toasters barely worked. I will steer clear of here in the future. Read less

Location and price was GREAT! Needs some updates like new mattresses. Rooms are small but adequate. Nice location we were able to walk to everything. Local restaurants were amazing and all the parks were truly beautiful!

Lots of restaurants nearby and we always felt safe. The staff at the hotel was superb, very friendly and helped us book tours, including the hop on hop off bus. The breakfast was great: eggs, Belgian waffles, fruits etc. The coffee machine stayed on 24/7 which was awesome. Room was adequate and clean. The water pressure in the shower could be stronger. The rooms face toward the street so a couple nights we definitely heard loud people outside. They provide ear plugs at the front desk. Plan on spending $22 a night to park if you have a car. There’s a new hotel right behind this one and they have a great rooftop bar. We loved that we could enjoy that a few steps from where we were staying. Overall I’d recommend this hotel. Read less

This is a nice motel-style hotel with comfortable beds (we had a 2-full bed room) on the 3rd floor. All rooms open to the outside hallway, with keycard entry. Room is spacious with below-counter refrigerator, window A/C unit (adjustable temp level), high-speed wi fi (very dependable at 200 mbps), flat-screen TV (Direct TV selections), 2 4-outlet… Read more

Room is spacious with below-counter refrigerator, window A/C unit (adjustable temp level), high-speed wi fi (very dependable at 200 mbps), flat-screen TV (Direct TV selections), 2 4-outlet AC plugs on desk and night table. Breakfast was very good with hot food, Belgian waffles, fresh fruits, dairy products, and baked items. The only con is the relatively high weekend room rate of $224 (vs half that rate on weekdays).

I feel more effort can be done to get guests taken care of sooner when they arrive early (this happened to us due to our train that got us to Savannah too early) 6:30 am! We were told we could not get a room until 4:30. We realized we would have a wait, however, we feel, more could have been done. Finally, we were taken care of by 1:00 p.m. by… Read more
