Perfect for what we needed

The room was spacious and relatively clean upon arrival. I wish there had been an in room fridge as well as a more thorough cleaning job (to be fair it was really busy during our stay). The beds were comfortable and the location was perfect (inbetween river street and city market). We didnt spend a ton of time in the room, so it suited out needs quite well!

Not a Restful Stay

The main selling point of this hotel is it's ideal location. That being said, do not stay here if you are looking for a restful night's sleep. There are bands that play loudly in Ellis Square till at least 2 o'clock in the morning, which can be heard from both sides of the hotel. My wife and I changed rooms after our first night, in order to get away from the noise, however we could still hear the loud music on the other side of the hotel. Perhaps Savannah needs better noise ordinances or maybe the Inn at Ellis Square could replace their outdated windows with a more sound-proof option. Whatever the solution may be, I would not recommend staying her unless you plan on going to bed till after 3 A.M.

Very nice hotel in a beautiful city

This hotel is located in a great area very close to the main sides within the historical district. You can walk to many good restaurants, to the riverfront and multiple historical sites.

Everything perfect

I stayed only two night but everything was perfect. I arrived really early and they allowed me to check-in. The room was really comfortable and clean. The hotel is near a very pleasant area. It is close to River Stree and Lady and Sons' restaurant. Wonderful.

Girls Get-away

This hotel was perfectly located. We could walk to everything. The parking garage was located close to the hotel and easy to access. The first hitch happened when the room key would not work and I had to go back to the desk. The faucet on the shower was installed backwards and the hot faucet was cold and cold was hot. This was a known fact to the office staff. How would a patron know this? Cold showers are not fun. We had a broken chair that was finally replaced. None of this Kept up from havin fun.
