River Street Inn in an excellent location of historic Savannah overlooking the river and walking distance to every square and gourmet restaurants. Our room was very comfortable although our view of the main street meant there was traffic noise so would recommend a room overlooking the river.

How many times will you get to stay in a building that was once used as a cotton warehouse? I loved the historic feel. We weren't missing any comforts either. The room had a wonderful view of the river. The furnishings helped recall the history of the city. The room was spacious, and we enjoyed the siting area and desk...

I appreciate your wonderful comments and do agree that we can be a bit elusive in the dark. For all future guests: Take the first left after Drayton and look to your right. You will see lettering for River Street Place on the building and a small awning with River Street Inn on the front. Park in the 20 minute...

Perfect location. We had a water view room: worth asking for to enjoy ship traffic. The room did need a spruce up with cleaning and decorating. The staff was extremely accommodating. Worth eating at Vic's on the Bay a very short walk. Public parking a very short walk. Safe location. Yes, I would return.

This is my 6th time staying at the River Street Inn...every time I stay there, I love it even more. This was a last minute, one night trip and I got a great deal; I was even upgraded to a river view room! Normally I prefer modern hotels, however, I love the charm, character, and history of the River Street...

I stayed here while in Savannah for a night for business. It was a great location, right in the middle of River Street. You could take an elevator right to River Street, or walk out the door to Bay Street. The rooms were large and had nice appointments. When I needed an iron, the staff brought one up within five...

Upon check in, was given an upgrade to top floor and river view. Old hotel, built in late 1700's as a cotton exchange. The room was very good and spacious. It had a balcony opening toward the river.

We were in Savannah the weekend of 1/28/15, and stayed at the River Street Inn, using a Travelzoo voucher. Thanks to TripAdvisor, I felt good about booking this hotel, and knew what to ask for. Everyone from the frontdesk to the bellpeople were very accommodating and helpful. I followed the advice I read, and requested a room without carpet. It...

Do yourself a favor ... Stay here. Even if you drive out of your way, you should go the extra mile to stay here. We stopped here taking the long way to Florida. The inside of this hotel is simply amazing. We already recommended this place to others, and they have booked stays here. It is an older hotel that...
