Additional Hotel Choices in Savannah

There's simply not room to recommend all the good hotels, motels, inns, and B&Bs in Savannah. Here are a few more recommendations. And if you are just looking for a reliable chain hotel, consider the Hilton Garden Inn, Sheraton Four Points, Homewood Suites, Extended Stay, or Doubletree.

Hilton Savannah Desoto. Expect tasteful contemporary furnishings at this 15-story property with a rooftop pool, convenient restaurant and pub, and a downtown location in the heart of a thriving shopping and dining neighborhood. Rooms are simply furnished but have all the mainstays of modernity. For the best view of the city's historic skyline, ask for a room on the 13th floor. A large property, there is ample meeting space for large conventions. Pros: overlooking Madison Square; nice skyline views from the upper floors; complimentary Wi-Fi. Cons: on-street parking or pricey valet. 15 E. Liberty St., Historic District, Savannah, GA, 31401. 912/232–9000 or 800/426–8483.

Inn at Ellis Square. Tucked inside the Guckenheimer Building, the Inn at Ellis Square received a historic preservation award for its attention to detail in renovating the nationally registered landmark that once housed one of Savannah's central grocery stores. Constructed in 1851, this modest, moderately priced hotel has an excellent location a whistle-stop away from River Street. Its rooms, although rather plain and basic, are popular with families; all have similar price tags, so ask for a high-floor room with a view. Pros: complimentary deluxe continental breakfast; fitness center, and lounge; free Wi-Fi. Cons: parking in the parking garage under Ellis Square; the understated lobby and room furnishings leave much to be desired. 201 W. Bay St., Historic District, Savannah, GA, 31401. 912/236–4440. Breakfast.

Residence Inn. Some of the architecture at this reasonably priced lodging re-creates the 19th-century cottages that were used to house executives of the Central of Georgia Railroad. Suites boast simple, chic decor with appropriate pops of color, flat-screen TVs, and fully equipped kitchens. A few have decks overlooking the courtyard, complete with a swimming pool, fire pit, and gazebo. Within arm's reach is Tricentennial Park and Battlefield, home of the Savannah Children's Museum. Pros: outdoor pool; complimentary hot breakfast; Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Cons: location on the western edge of Historic District isn't the best; looks and feels like a chain hotel; parking for a fee. 500 W. Charlton St., Historic District, Savannah, GA, 31401. 912/233–9996. Breakfast.

SpringHill Suites. Holding its own beside any of the city's boutique hotels, the SpringHill Suites has a lobby that's a study in sleek, contemporary design, with shimmery aqua drapes lining its windows and ultramodern light fixtures. The rooms are minimalist in style but smartly appointed. A 24-hour market is well stocked with snacks and beverages. An outdoor pool and hot tub with cozy, chic lounge chairs will help you wind down at the end of the day. Pros: suites include refrigerators and microwaves; on-site gym; free Wi-Fi and hot buffet breakfast. Cons: some bathrooms are small and stark; parking is pricey. 150 Montgomery St., Historic District, Savannah, GA, 31401. 912/629–5300. Breakfast.
