Savannah River Street Savannah's Excitement
River Street is a glittering, multi-faceted gem along the broad Savannah River. The century old buildings, once cotton warehouses, have been converted to antique shops, distinctive boutiques, spectacular galleries, quaint brew pubs, fabulous restaurants, unique nightspots, elegant inns and hotels. Bustling with welcoming hospitality, it’s also the place to see Savannah from the river that made her by taking a cruise or watching ships from around the globe sail into one of the busiest ports in America.
Now Open – Brand New Hotel situated at River Street East in Savannah’s famed Historic District, Homewood Suites Savannah Historic District/Riverfront offers stunning views of the Savannah River to enjoy from your guest room balcony or our resort-style, rooftop pool offering beverage service.

Housed within a refurbished late-1800’s cotton warehouse, the boutique Cotton Sail Hotel was named as tribute to its nostalgic past. That storied past has been admiringly preserved and consciously revitalized, with the main lobby and each of the 56 well-appointed guestrooms being anchored with 200 year old heart of pine hardwood floors originating from the roof of the old cotton factory that is the Cotton Sail Hotel today.
