“Short Stay in Savannah”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

My husband and I were traveling to Florida by car. The day before we left, we decided to stop in Savannah for a night, get a quick intro to the sights to see if we wanted to return another time, and then continue with our trip.

Because neither of us had been there before, we wanted to stay someplace along the River, near some attractions. Our GPS steered us to Bay Street, where we happened upon the Holiday Inn Express.

While we paid extra for the convenience of staying at this location (I think our bill was around $219 including tax), it was certainly well worth it. The hotel staff was pleasant and helpful, the room was gorgeous and clean, the bed was comfy, and they had quite a good breakfast buffet. Of course, the location was perfect, too, and they have a convenient parking garage.

After spending an amazing evening on the waterfront, we decided to stop into the bar for a nightcap. The bar is not owned by Holiday Inn, but is attached and is available via the lounge area. We mentioned to the bartender that we were thinking of taking a tour of the city before we had to leave, and the bartender helped us choose the trolley (with a nice little incentive).

Long story short... everybody should see Savannah, and the Holiday Inn Express Savannah-Historic District is a terrific place to stay.

We normally stay at another, pricier property in Savannah but were unable to get in. We are glad we couldnt get in. The HI express is a rather new, very nice property which is located in the heart of the bay street restaurant entertainment area, It has a delightful pool on the roof, a helpful staff and nice guest rooms. On our next visit, we will go back. A good value and a couple steps up from the average HI express.

Room Tip: The high floors facing the river would be nice.

I would say that Holiday Inns are usually not known to have the best of reputations, however, this one was well worth staying! Service was great, GREAT location near historic district and River Street, very modern, clean, quiet and all for a reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again if I ever come back to Savannah.

Location - check. Price - check. Hospitality - check. Absolutely some of the friendliest and most helpful staff I've ever encountered. Location was perfect. Walking distance to river, historic sites, market...everything! Oh, and the rooftop pool is pretty nice as well! Wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: We chose the "room with a view" option so that we would be on a higher floor and have a vi...

This is a very nice hotel in a great location if you want to walk around historic downtown Savannah, Ga. The rooms were nice and amenities were all very good for a $250 a night Holiday Inn Express room. The breakfast that went from approx 6am to 10am hit the spot. The rooftop pool was great and offered great views of the Savannah River (pool was not heated but the hot tub was and seemed very clean). As for parking, the hotel does offer valet service but it is pricey unless you plan on useing your car instead of walking around while in town. We used the covered parking garage immediatly next door to the hotel for a total of 8 dollars for around 20hrs of parking. Also a tip for Delta Skymiles members looking to have the Holiday Inn Express stay be added to your account, don't bother. Out of the four folks at the reception desk I spoke with and tried to have add the stay to my account said that it doesn't work and I should just join their rewards club. Bottom line is that it is a nice hotel in a great location.

My husband and I arrived before check in and they took our name and cell number as we could not check in early. When we did check in I was not too happy to hear that we did not have a king size bed. The clerk asked another man behind the counter as I am a Priority Club member and he said "Are you staying more than one night?" . I replied no but I had just left an HI Express and we were going to stay at another this week which he replied - we do not have any rooms with a king size bed. We stayed in a small room (queen size) and it was okay. Smaller than usual for a room but maybe that is what is expected in Savannah. I am happy to say that we love Savannah and the location, but may stay elsewhere next time.
