We have been staying at this property for several years. They recently remodeled the bathrooms, we were disappointed. Part of the lure to this hotel is the history, the feel of 1800's, but bathrooms are too modern, it does not fit. We were also used to having robes in the room, they're gone. We didn't know you have to request (it was just a nice… Read more

We didn't know you have to request (it was just a nice touch). Also they eliminated tubs, which was disappointing for my 85 yr old mom. I think you are supposed to get discounts to one of eateries on River St, we were never notified. Read less

As per the website they have done some really nice updating. Paint, crown moulding, light fixtures, flooring, window treatments etc. are all very nice. The rooms and bathroom are large and well appointed. The front desk staff we very friendly and attentive. Location is perfect for walking downtown, the market as well as the river front. There are tons of dinning options no matter what time of day it is. Suggestions would be to make sure the rooms are ready for check in. Our room had no coffee cups, water or hand lotion. The AC wasn’t working either. We didn’t realize that until well into the night so I didn’t call the front desk. I’m sure all of these things were missed due to the ongoing renovation. It happens. Luckily there was an awesome ceiling fan. Also, if you’re going to stay here be sure ask if the crews are working near your room. They were hammering and drilling on both sides of our room early in the morning. That brings me to my next point! The fitness area has a Peloton bike! Yay for that. That was actually the deciding factor on which hotel we chose as there are so many in the area. We travel thru Savannah every 3-4 weeks so we will def be back. Hopefully the renovations will be done by then. They leave the most delicious chocolate/Carmel candies on your pillow! So, eat the candy and ride the Peloton! See you next month River Street Inn.
