Fodor's Expert Review Hampton Inn & Suites

603 W. Oglethorpe Ave., Savannah, Georgia, 31401, United States See on Map

The rooms and suites at this well-known chain hotel are a remarkably good value for Savannah's Historic District. The studios and one-bedroom suites have their own kitchenettes, making them ideal for families. The beds are topped with soft linens. There's even a bank of public computers in the lobby near the concierge—unusual for a hotel at this price point. There are an adjacent parking lot and a small swimming pool but, alas, no restaurant or bar.

YOU SHOULD KNOW If you will be using the pull-out couch in one of the suites make sure to request linen at check-in.

The clean and comfy rooms all come equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, 25 inch TV and free WIFI. Beds and linens are both of respectable quality, especially for the price range. Suites include an additional sofa bed and more spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Smoking rooms are available upon request.

Although minimalist, bathrooms are clean and bright. Strong water pressure and soft towels do not disappoint.

Hardwood floors, a banistered staircase, and dark-wood furniture create a pleasant ambiance upon arrival. A fireplace and comfortable leather couches sit in an adjacent area. A mini convenience store gives visitors a chance to snag a last minute snack.

On Friday and Saturday mornings, historical reenactors drop by, supplying interesting tidbits about Savannah’s past.

The outdoor pool, although not large enough for swimming laps, is perfect for a quick dip after a long day exploring the city, especially in the summer months.

The Distillery (5-minute walk) offers southern inspired sandwiches and salads, and creative takes on classic pub fare.
Rue De Jean (1-minute walk) is a casual french bistro serving what many consider to be the best mussels in town.


Nightlife explorers will find Congress Street (5-minute walk) walking east from MLK Boulevard, passing 15 bars in three blocks, often showcasing live music and Karaoke. The Jinx (3-minute walk) is one of Savannah's few true rock venues; if you're looking for cheap drinks and cutting-edge sound, hit up a show. If a beer garden is more your style, you'll find a lively one at the Congress Street Social Club (5-minute walk).


For a quality hotel so close to many of the must-see spots in the western part of the Historic District, it is tough to beat the rates.
