Within its own fiefdom, this high-rise property with more resort amenities than any other property in the area—including tennis courts, a full-service spa, and a golf course—presides over Hutchinson Island, five minutes by water taxi from River Street and just a short drive over the Talmadge Bridge. The adjacent Savannah International Trade & Convention Center is what keeps the hotel at high-occupancy levels almost year-round, because many meeting attendees stay
here; vacationers predominate on the weekends. The Savannah Harbor Golf Course is open to the public and is the best bet for golfers staying in the Historic District. Ferries depart every 15 or 20 minutes, with the last one heading for the island at midnight. If you miss the last ferry, water taxis are about $7. In-room fitness equipment is an extra charge.
