Staff was great and very accommodating. We had no fridge, cups, ice bucket or soap in our room but was given soap when asked- the other stuff was not part of the room I was told . I thought that was weird since there was an ice machine down the hallway. I still have the hotel a good rating because of the staff

Absolutely disappointing stay. We pulled back our covers to find blood stains on the sheets. We called the front desk who sent someone up to change them...who didn’t bring the sheets. We ended up waiting until about 1am to finally get in bed. Additionally, my car door now has paint chips missing from the door after using valet parking. Do yourself a favor and avoid staying here.

I love the location of the hotel, couldn't be more perfect. The hotel was also beautiful but the housekeeping, bar & dining staff were very poor. Bar staff rude, housekeeping never refilled in room coffee and when having breakfast, had to get or own coffee and creamer refills even after asking for this. There loss, plenty of places close by to get great service which was lacking at the hotel. Also, balcony with no chairs? What is the point? Waste of money to upgrade to skyline view.

Hi Christopher. Thank you for the thorough feedback. I appreciate your love of the location as we are the most central hotel in Savannah. I do apologize for the missteps in service though as that is definitely not our normal way.

Staff is not friendly and not helpful at all. They don’t know the city or parking or any information. I was told I could have a late check out and then rudely denied without explanation. The hotel was being primarily utilized for a wedding where everyone was drunk and running all over the hotel. I had a drink slipped on me in th elevator going to my room and they people were so drunk and rude. The hotel is not nice, rooms aren’t clean, staff is rude and not helpful. I would Never stay here again or recommend staying here.

Kk, Thank you for the honest feedback. I do apologize as nine of this is typical of a stay here. Yes, Savannah is a wedding destination and The DeSoto is very popular for great weddings. However, the wedding parties here are typically very respectful of the space and our other guests. I am sorry for your experience.
