You have to wait a while for the elevators to show up and sometimes they will go down or up despite the direction you choose. The doors will close while people are walking in. The room had a heavy mildew smell, microwave was dirty, shower curtain was ripped. At check-in I was asked if or how I wanted housekeeping (full service, half service, no service). Wasn't sure if they charge for this now but it was surprising. Breakfast was lacking in selections and mainly powder eggs, warmed up sausage, biscuits, bacon, bread items, yogurt, oatmeal. The dining area does not enough tables and chairs for everybody no matter the time you go down. It was packed at 7am and worse later. Getting the food is difficult because the warming trays have a lid you have to keep opened with one hand while trting to get the food with other while holding your thin plastic plate. My access card stopped working after two days and had to get the front desk to fix it. The pool and gym are very small and not much to look at except the view. Noise issues were hearing people and cars outside and in the hallway. It was overall better than lower star hotels but too many unacceptable issues for how expensive it is.

This property is situated in an ideal location in the heart of the Savannah Historic District, across from River Street, with balcony views of the sunrise and the Savannah River. The staff is friendly and helpful, and patient for those of us who are not regular valet users.

Everything was wonderful except pulling into the garage where you accessed the lobby for check-in & valet parking. This is such a popular hotel, cars were lined up onto the street & around the corner waiting. However, I was very impressed with the attendants who handled the situation professionally & as quickly as possible. Good job guys!

The overall hotel experience was excellent. The location is perfect for all the tourist destinations. The valet parking staff, front desk staff, and housekeeping staff were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The roof provided a view of the river walk and its activities. There is also a pool on the roof. The breakfast had a large variety of items to choose from. Overall, we were extremely happy with the property and the service. We plan to return soon.
