My friend convinced me to get a hotel that was unique to Savannah, and not one of those chain hotels. The River Street Inn was a great choice. It's a historic hotel, so the rooms are still a large size, with high ceilings, and very roomy. They're decorated so well, and I really appreciated the accent colors, too. Location was PERFECT!! Front door on the main drive of the city. Back door on the main tourist street of the city. And the best part was every evening they had FREE wine and cheese/snacks that you could take out to the balcony and sit on these cute rocking chairs and people watch. Worst part was the front desk staff, they're pretty inefficient, but once you're checked in, it's less of an issue. Don't sweat the parking, it's literally across the street, but there's a convenient loading zone where you can drop off your bags in the lobby, then just park. Do sweat the taxes, the city has all kinds of room and bed taxes, but you're going to get that everywhere, so just book it! :)

River Street Inn was fantastic! Rooms were clean, view of river was awesome. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. You may have read other reviews about Stan. Everything everyone else says about him is true. He is just great. Convenient to everything. Hueys New Orleans restaurant is just downstairs. Great breakfasts and the best Bloody Marys in town. Parking is the only thing a bit tricky. I didn't know where we were going, but following their online directions was ok, but check Google for better idea of how to get into the small parking/loading area. Parking garage is only a block away, open 24 hours, very safe. But, to get there from the parking/loading area in front of the Inn you have to turn left against traffic (tough at rush hour, but Savannah drivers seem pretty cool, and will stop to let you out. Turn right on Abercorn and right into the Bryan St. parking garage. If you dont have a lot of luggage, just go straight to the parking garage, then walk to the Inn. Reseve well in advance of your stay-it fills up quickly. We just loved it.

We spent 6/9 and 6/10/2009 and loved it. The River Street Inn provides you with everything you'd expect from a gracious southern inn. We stayed in a king, river view room, floor to ceiling windows that opened to a small wrought iron balcony overlooking the river, fireplace, and four poster bed. The room was very comfortable, had a large bathroom and was within easy walking distance to many shops, restaurants and attractions. We loved this destination and hotel and will return there again. Also, each evening there was a free wine and cheese reception that was lovely. Another nice feature, each evening they lay a card by your bed with the weather forcast for the next day, and provide you with a umbrella to use while you're there if it's needed. Every staff member was helpful, friendly and courteous.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Another couple went with us and the front desk quickly and kindly arranged adjoining rooms. X, who took our bags to the room, was most helpful and courteous offering advice when we inquired. The best part was the weekday wine reception with hot and cold food to accompany it from 5-7 p.m. We ate, drank, played cards (provided) and shot pool (FUN!) The view of the river is beautiful with huge cargo ships coming and going. The beds were cozy, the rooms clean, loved the snuggly robes, topped off with turndown service & chocolates, and great flavored (and regular) coffee in the room...plus coffee to go in the lobby. The location is perfect...all the shops are downstairs...and great restaurants within a few doors. The hotel is charming...brick walls...nice decor. Just a few blocks to Market Street. We plan to visit this hotel again in warmer weather (it was 30 degrees one night we were there!) The folks in Savannah are sooo friendly! A great place! I highly recommend it!

My experience at this hotel was one of the worst I've ever had. While my boyfriend and I were out sight seeing, the hotel maid service came to our room to tidy up. Upon our return my boyfriend noticed his suitcase has been gone through and his money was missing which was in an envelope placed in a book that was inside a closed bag. We talked to the manager on duty, X, who was very helpful and apologetic and we filed a police report. We were then directed to the gm who was completely rude and very uncaring. He told my boyfriend it was HIS fault the money had been stolen and that he was not going to refund a single cent of his money. On top of this, the power had gone out in the entire city and we were without power in our room for 24 hours! While I understand this was not the hotel's fault, they did nothing to accommodate their guests during this unfortunate episode. Nothing was explained to us about the power outage or when the power would be back. We had to sleep in a room with no air conditioning in the middle of August and the next morning we took ice cold showers. I felt like I was camping! Also, the website expressed there was a free continental breakfast and turn down service which we never received. This was not a relaxing vacation and only caused more hassle for us upon our return home. Do not stay here unless you don't mind the staff violating your personal space and belongs and then blaming you when they steal your personal items.
