A study in modernity amid the history of River and Bay streets, the seven-story Hyatt Regency Savannah has marble floors, glass elevators, and a towering atrium. It's also closer to the waterfront than any hotel in town, and many rooms have balconies that overlook the Savannah River. The views don't come cheap, but they're priceless, especially at night. The decor, including large leather club chairs, work desks with ergonomic chair, and flat-screen TVs, is crisp and contemporary.
The indoor heated pool has great views, as does the lounge. Windows Restaurant serves breakfast and lunch—choose the buffet or go à la carte. The clientele is a mix of leisure and business travelers, particularly on weekends.
