When we arrived, Ricky Ricardo, valet at the Inn the size of a linebacker greeted us with genuine southern hospitality. Being southern I know it when I see it. The front desk was equally warm and welcoming. This is a good start. The room was nice and clean and the Inn really has a charm of it's own and is very old, 200+ years, and located… Read more
When we arrived, Ricky Ricardo, valet at the Inn the size of a linebacker greeted us with genuine southern hospitality. Being southern I know it when I see it. The front desk was equally warm and welcoming. This is a good start. The room was nice and clean and the Inn really has a charm of it's own and is very old, 200+ years, and located perfectly for old Savannah. Many guests were enjoying the complimentary cocktails and munchies at 5pm. The elevator in the back side of the Inn opens to River Street and it's just a matter of going left or right. There is a restaurant just to the left of the elevator and a bar/grill above it with a great view of River Street and the Savannah River. This Inn is a real pleasure to visit and stay at. Read less

The staff was totally untrained and unprofessional to start with. The room was old and dated when we checked in and then our TV didn’t work so we had to switch rooms. Then nobody told us they were renovating that floor. Awful experience.

I have always noticed the River Street Inn on previous visits to Savannah and new it had great views of the river and the town but never made the opportunity to stay there until this past weekend. It is now my favorite spot to stay and not just because of the view. From a wonderful greeting by Shamarcus the valet attendant, great check in with Andrew and Steve the bellman then a blast in the Tavern with Ms. Val there was great service throughout my stay. They are obviously well trained in their job and the art of hospitality. The evening reception in the Tavern was a surprise and we enjoyed it both nights. Breakfast downstairs at Huey's was delicious as was a casual dinner at Bernie's. The room was attractive with a 4 poster bed and small balcony to watch the river and boats flow by. Took the free river boat across to the Westin for wonderful round of golf on their signature course. We are looking forward to our next visit. Read less

Wonderful stay in a beautiful hotel It is situated in a 200 year old historical structure right on River Street with tons of restaurants, bars and shopping right at your doorstep. They even have 3-4 restaurants in the same building. The complimentary manager's reception Mon. thru Sat. is very cool and the hostess is wonderful. It is right on River… Read more
Wonderful stay in a beautiful hotel It is situated in a 200 year old historical structure right on River Street with tons of restaurants, bars and shopping right at your doorstep. They even have 3-4 restaurants in the same building. The complimentary manager's reception Mon. thru Sat. is very cool and the hostess is wonderful. It is right on River Street so there is some party noise to contend with if you have a river view room. The view makes up for it though. Read less

We enjoyed our stay and would return. It’s a historic building and you need to go in knowing this, so set your expectations (most of Savannah is like this with regards to the historic district). The staff is friendly and helpful, always take their recommendations for eateries!! They won’t disappoint 😉
