great location

Staff was very helpful when scheduling activities. Great location in the historic district could walk everywhere easily. The pool was broken but you could go across the street to a neighbor hotel and use theirs, a little inconvenient but at least better than no pool. the room was nice and great views of the river.

Comfy and convenient

Very nice location, made it easy to come back to regroup and rest after all that walking. Breakfast was good, though the juice machine was broken the second day and there was nothing to drink if you didn't like coffee or milk. The one fault I had was the weird smell that overtook my room as well as the entire floor I was staying on during my last morning; so strong it woke me up, but Savannah smelled funny at times so it could have been from outside maybe.

Bring your walking shoes!!!! Historic Savannah is best seen by wandering on foot, but it's a lot of wandering!

Excellent Location

Excellent location! Very friendly and helpful staff. The facility was well kept except for the beautiful roof top pool. On three different mornings it was not open when it was supposed to be and had not been cleaned when they finally did open. We would stay there again if we could get the same deal on price.

A beautiful city

After a long day of travel and college visits the holiday Inn was not only comfortable but spotlessly clean.I can't wait to visit when I have more time to explore Savannah

Great stay....not so great breakfast

Loved the room and MOST of the staff were wonderful but the breakfast crew were rude and did not care you had to wait 30 minutes for eggs. Also the 'bartender' for the happy hour was not very well trained or stocked on a friday night which is suprising considering a liquor store was two blocks away.

Wonderful stay

Since this was just a weekend trip, I must say the location was great.. right across the street was the Savannah River and resturants were in walking distance. Located less than a block was a nice clean park, for morning walk. Only problem was the valet attendents were not to nice, as if they did not want to be there. but whatever.

The tour bus stop was right outside our door, which was nice, as stated before everything was in walking distance, and Tybee Island was 15 minutes away...nice.

Great Stay!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in the Historic District of Savannah and we had a great stay! We even discussed going back to Savannah for a vacation next year and staying at the same hotel. The staff was friendly, even in the elevator they would ask how our stay was and if there was anything else we needed. Our room was nice and quite, and the free breakfast was a great addition. The pool is on the roof and has a great view of the river. Since Savannah is a big walking town, the hotel is in a great location near all the best attractions and the trolley pick up is right across the street. If you are debating on which hotel to stay at you can stop looking and choose Holiday Inn Express (on Bay Street).
