Hotel Indigo Savannah Historic District

Savannah, Georgia

The hotel

Not satisfied with just being amid the history of Savannah, Hotel Indigo is part of it. Housed in the Guckenheimer, a red-brick corner building which first debuted in the 1850s, this boutique hotel’s had something of a renaissance. Its 19th century shell cloaks modernised interiors, where bespoke murals cover walls and plush rugs dress hardwood floors. It may feel like they’ve been given the key to a designer magazine’s stock room, but Hotel Indigo hasn’t lost its Southern charm. It’s the first thing that greets you at Five Oaks Taproom, closely followed by local Georgia beer and farm-fresh food. Nicknamed ‘Grand Lady of the Bay’ by locals, if you fancy dining out, you’re just a block from City Market and River Street.

The hotel is in a good location. The rooms are small but clean. But if you want to sleep on the weekend, forget it. Way too many drunk people that are loud obnoxious and disorderly. From 1130 pm until 4 in the morning it was constant stupidity. We called the front desk twice but it never truly died down. I wish we could get our money back

We spent the night on our way to Florida and couldn’t have asked for a better spot! It was easy to find, great parking garage and close to great dining. We were able to sleep in and then stretch our legs before heading the rest of the way to Orlando. The room was comfortable, clean and the pillows were some of the best I have had at hotels!

I would absolutely stay here again. Read less

Horrible staff. Stayed several nights, checked-in and found an earring on the floor- housekeeping is clearly not cleaning. Informed the front desk- no offer to move us, no apology.

Horrible staff. Stayed several nights, checked-in and found an earring on the floor- housekeeping is clearly not cleaning. Informed the front desk- no offer to move us, no apology. Strike 1 A few days later we tried to charge a bottle of water to our room, and it was revealed that while our room key was for one room, their system had assigned us to a different room. An hour later, this appeared to be straightened out. Strike 2 Returned home to find out I was charged twice. Their corporate office informed me that the individual properties handle billing and they were helpless to intervene. Preferring death, instead I was forced to call the property to try to straighten their billing out. The front desk clerk, Alexis, insisted on loudly explaining to me the way 'billing is supposed to work' a hold is placed on your card, blah, blah, blah. However, in my case I was billed twice, with identical charges appearing several days apart. If Alexis had not been screaming at me, she may have been able to grasp this simple point, but no such luck. Strike 3. This hotel is impossible to deal with. Hopefully, my credit card company will straighten things out. Read less

The front desk staff was quite rude, and were not exactly happy to help or make you feel welcome or provide more than directions to the room. The room itself was mostly nice, apart from a few minor things, like no microwave, a toilet paper roll with about 6 sheets left on it, a television which would work for about 20 seconds out of every minute… Read more
The front desk staff was quite rude, and were not exactly happy to help or make you feel welcome or provide more than directions to the room. The room itself was mostly nice, apart from a few minor things, like no microwave, a toilet paper roll with about 6 sheets left on it, a television which would work for about 20 seconds out of every minute due to “lack of signal,” and mold on the shower head and in the grout. The pillows were nice, though, as was the mattress. Very tall ceilings as well, made more dramatic by the very dim lighting in the room. The view I paid extra for was somewhat lacking, from what I could see through the one dirty window. Would I stay there again? Maybe, but not for full price and definitely not paying extra. Read less

We stayed here previously and were pleased to book online on same day arrival with a special rate as IHG member. Our King Suite was very well done. Plenty of space in sitting area, nice wet bar with fridge and well done bathroom. Efficient check in was great.

We stayed here previously and were pleased to book online on same day arrival with a special rate as IHG member. Our King Suite was very well done. Plenty of space in sitting area, nice wet bar with fridge and well done bathroom. Efficient check in was great. We purchased parking in the package which seemed like a discount from regular parking rate of $27 or $28 a day. Only complaint was our room was River Side. Hard to see River, but since it was East Bay St. the traffic noise was very noisy. Would definitely ask for a different location away from Bay St. Great location! Read less
