“Perfect Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

We had a beautiful view at the front of the hotel overlooking E Bay St. Easy walking distance to everything. Very clean and comfortable. Decorated to fit in nicely with historic Savannah. Staff was very nice. Have recommended this hotel to 2 couples later on our vacation.

Our two day stay at the Holiday Inn Express was wonderful.. We were surprised by a charge-free upgrade to a King room with river view because of my husband's birthday. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet and had the most magnificent view. The staff could not possibly have been more helpful. The breakfast room was spacious and clean.. the food was good, plentiful and there were many choices. We used valet parking which was a fine value even tho because of the hotel's location we never had to move our car until we were leaving.
Though it was too cool for swimming, we did enjoy the roof top pool area.
It's just a very, very nice place to stay.

Location is so important when picking a hotel and this one is perfect if you are visiting Savannah. It is a 5 minute walk to most touristy areas in the city including river st and the marketplace. The neighborhood is safe and well decorated with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Another plus is the parking garage associated with the hotel is right next door so it is a quick walk if you need anything from your car. The pool on the rooftop is a descent size with an adjoining hottub. There are lots of chairs and the view of the city and river are amazing.

The reason I downgraded it is some quality issues with the room itself. The showerhead was lousy and the microwave no longer worked. Also the elevators took forever for some odd reason. Also I didnt find the staff to be as friendly as Ive seen in other hotels.

All in all a good place to stay

This holiday inn is exceptional! Jim at the front desk went out of his way to help me use the computers. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, views were great. The pool on the roof is worth visiting, just to see Savannah. Located directly across the street from the river street area, it was easy to walk everywhere in the historic section of Savannah. Valet parking is $15 a day. I chose to park my own car, in the same lot for $10, but my dad used the valet service. After dinner Dad discovered he left something in his car and asked the valet about. In three minutes, the valet was back with item! I would definately come back!

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors have a better view, but if you can't get one, just go up th the roof...

I just got back from my great birthday weekend in Savannah with my mom and sisters. We had never been before and didn't know where the best hotel location would be for all of our sight seeing but picking this hotel was perfect! It is within walking distance to the river, great restaurants, such as the Old Pink House, and has a public parking garage right behind it for when you're not able to get street parking. The staff was VERY helpful and polite when helping us with directions and our hotel needs. We got a room with two queen beds that were very comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated. The only drawback to the room was when all four of us were getting ready it did not have enough mirrors to use and the sink wasn't outside the bathroom. :-) Although we were too busy to use it, the rooftop pool and gym were very nice, especially to watch the fireworks show. The free breakfast had a great selection and they always kept the food stocked, even in the last 10 minutes of breakfast being over. I would and already have recommended this hotel to my firends and already making plans with the rest of my family to go back to Savannah and stay at this hotel.
