After a long day of exploring the town and surviving Savannah’s summer heat, there are a quite a few hotels and inns you can retreat to and call it a day.
Many of them are right on the Savannah river so you can wake up rejuvenated and refreshed and to a relaxing riverfront view.
Whether you choose to hide out from the humidity in a swanky modern hotel or a historical inn, there’s a unique experience waiting in any of the Savannah waterfront hotels you lay to rest in.
Over 700 Hyatt hotels across the globe but none quite like the one on Savannah’s River Street.
Here you can take in the view of the river during the sun’s rising or setting, indulge in southern-style cuisine at the Windows Restaurant, enjoy a little yoga in the privacy of your own room, take an elevator right down to river street (so you don’t have to trek the steep stairs) and a water taxi on a private boat dock that will take you across the river and back again.
And the list of features doesn’t end there. After you wake up, you can grab a morning coffee at Perks Coffee Shop in the hotel before you head out on your pre-arranged guided tour. And if vous ne parlez pas anglais, ce n’est pas un problème! There’s a multilingual staff available to help you and a currency exchange system so you can splurge on all that the gifts the city has to offer.
Just a few blocks down is Homewood Suites and the closest you’ll get to being right at home with fully equipped kitchens (stovetops, dishwashers, full-size refrigerators), HDTV and complimentary internet access giving it the comfort of being in your own home. But if you want to sit back and enjoy being away from home you can head up to their rooftop for complimentary wine and beer at their full-service bar, peruse their food menu for an unforgettable feast or lay in the cabanas or by the fire pit for a little R&R.
And you can rest easy and with a clear conscience at this hotel knowing that is the first and only in Savannah with solar panels in place and a green roof on it’s 3rd and 8th floors.
