Girls Weekend in Savannah

This hotel has a great location, but it is not updated with modern amenities. Our bathroom was dirty when we arrived, and had to ask to have it cleaned. The room seemed damp. Perfect location for a weekend of partying with your friends, if you don't mind the outdates.

Quick Get Away

We just wanted a room that was both priced reasonably and walking distance to downtown attractions. This was the best combination of the two. The hotel is in a historic area so the room / bathroom was on the small side, but what it lacked in size it made up for in character. It had hardwoods rather than carpet in the rooms, which I liked. Very close to area attractions.

Enjoying Savannah

The staff could have been more helpful. They weren't rude, they just weren't very good. The thing the hotel really has going for it, is the location. That would be enough for me to stay there again.

Night out in Savannah

The hotel was in the perfect location, right between River St. and Ellis Square. We were able to walk to everything in the historic district. The hotel was very nice, but the rooms were somewhat small. It was still a good value and the location can't get any better.

In front of the hotel is River St. and behind the hotel is Ellis Square. We visited both and enjoyed the bars and live music.
