Great Stay!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in the Historic District of Savannah and we had a great stay! We even discussed going back to Savannah for a vacation next year and staying at the same hotel. The staff was friendly, even in the elevator they would ask how our stay was and if there was anything else we needed. Our room was nice and quite, and the free breakfast was a great addition. The pool is on the roof and has a great view of the river. Since Savannah is a big walking town, the hotel is in a great location near all the best attractions and the trolley pick up is right across the street. If you are debating on which hotel to stay at you can stop looking and choose Holiday Inn Express (on Bay Street).

Great but....

The hotel and staff were fine but the parking was completely unacceptable. Our car with its contents were parked 3 blocks away from the hotel. It appeared that the valet parking used the same location only they were able to run there faster than I could.

Use a hotel further from the center and use a taxi. It would be safer and cheaper,

Nice Hotel on the river

This is a great hotel on the river. Walking distance from shops and great restaurants. Parking is either street, public pay or valet at $20 a day. Very nice breakfast and a great room.

overnight stay

Valet parking was exceptional. Roof top pool and hit tub. In the middle of the historic district. Across from river street. Everything within walking distance. Great stay. Kids loved it.

Much needed getaway

The property is in a great location. The manager took his time to share with us places to go and things to do while we were there. We also watch the Hotel Manager help in different areas of the property where they may have been understaffed. Overall, a great experience!

Great stay

Never stayed before at a Holiday Inn Express, so didn't know what to expect. All in all I was pleasantly surprised. This hotel has really got it together from the courteous service to the room amenities, a good free breakfast and a great location, just across the street from the vibrant riverfront area. Plus Savannah is just a beautiful, historic city well worth repeated visits.
