In Town and Quiet!

Everyone here was so friendly. The atmosphere was wonderful. The room was quiet although just below us was the Savannah downtown traffic. The beds were heavenly, clean and new! The concierge was so friendly and constantly smilin'! He was a tribute to grand southern hospitality! Close and convenient to River Street shopping and restaurants. The park was located just behind the hotel. Wonderful breakfast every morning with a good variety of food. Parking was a slight issue on Friday as the deck filled up quickly. The weather in Savannah in the wintertime is perfect for being outside whether you are walking or just sitting by the river. We will definitely be back and will be certain to stay in this Holiday Inn.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

Ladies - don't wear heels in Savannah. The streets are cobblestone, and drinking on the street is allowed. Wear flats to avoid injury!

Perfect location

Beautiful room, clean, spacious. The staff was very pleasant, brought chocolates to the room in evening and checked to see if we needed anything. Location was perfect for walking/touring Savannah. Excellent breakfast included.

Savannah

This hotel is located one block back from River Street, and is within walking distance of practically everything you want to do there. The room was beautiful, and I paid less for it than the older, rundown room I stayed in at Myrtle Beach a few days before.

Wonderful Hotel!

Top notch bedding and amenities! Great location just across the street from River Walk. The roof top pool and hot tub were a huge hit! What a view for relaxing. Highly recommend this hotel.
