No answer at desk phone when needed, poor maintenance, broken fixtures, no fridge or microwave in room, no continental breakfast or happy hour. No warning about parking situation and potential fees!

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While I wish you had a better experience, it is feedback like this that we learn from and use to improve. We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it's apparent in this case that we fell short. If you give us a chance to earn back your trust, I can assure you that we will do our best to give you the great hotel experience that so many of our guests have grown so fond of.

The beds were so comfortable! The staff was super friendly and efficient. The dining options in the hotel were limited, but there are many wonderful restaurants in walking distance. Our room had a balcony, and you could hear the street noise through the closed door, we were on the third floor. Possibly higher floors would have less noise, or without a balcony. Our overall stay was fantastic! I would definitely recommend this hotel! It is right in the heart of old Savannah. ❤️

Upon booking, Was told hotel would send a shuttle/cab to airport and unfortunately when we arrived in Savannah they informed me that airport pickup was not available. Pretty hotel, room clean upon arrival. Amenities- outdoor pool only (no hot tub or inside pool). Poolside bar not open entire stay. No place to grab breakfast, lunch or a daytime drink on site. Hotel store not open entire stay. Dinner available at hotel restaurant, starting at 4pm, very limited menu. Outside patio was Very nice with great live music each night. Called front desk two days for fresh towels, needed to call twice each time. Housekeeping would not take dirty towels or trash. Disappointed, would not stay here again!

The location was great to walk around Savannah. Balcony was a nice size with a great view. Had to ask to have my room flooring cleaned. Looked like no one had cleaned it.

The staff was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make our anniversary trip special. The only downside to the hotel is the noise from the street, which the hotel has no control over.
