Night out in Savannah

The hotel was in the perfect location, right between River St. and Ellis Square. We were able to walk to everything in the historic district. The hotel was very nice, but the rooms were somewhat small. It was still a good value and the location can't get any better.

In front of the hotel is River St. and behind the hotel is Ellis Square. We visited both and enjoyed the bars and live music.

Great Girls Getaway

Location is fantastic! Room was clean, comfortable AND ready before stated check in time, which is always awesome!! Staff was friendly & helpful. 4 guests were in one room, only had towels for 3, but housekeeping was very responsive to our needs. Hotel Concierge was extremely informative of the local happenings. Bartender was very accommodating & friendly. Continental Breakfast was packed on Sunday, staff didn't seem prepared w/ hot food, but there was plenty of other food. Overall great experience.

Stay right in the center of everything

The Inn at Ellis Square is located right on Bay Street. We parked our car and walked everywhere. The beds were very comfortable. And it was so quiet! At other hotels, I usually hear toilets flushing, showers running, doors slamming, etc. Not so at this property. Complimentary breakfast was pretty decent, too.

Henry's Restaurant on Drayton is a small diner-like restaurant, serving breakfast all day and lunch. It caters mostly to locals. Food was good, not very expensive, and was delivered quickly with a smile.

Ladies getaway

Hotel is in a great location. Just cross the road to River St., one block from City Market, short walk from many great restaurants. Room and hotel was very clean, great breakfast, and a very helpful concierge that makes all your reservations. When I return to Savannah, I would consider staying here again.

great location

The hotel's in a great location that's within easy walking distance of many of the sights. The only thing I missed was having a mini-fridge in the room.

Concert Trip

The location of the hotel is perfect. All you could want or need is within walking distance. I've always had a pleasant experience at this hotel. The only thing I have to complain about this trip is housekeeping walking into the room an hour before check out without knocking! Other than that it's a GREAT hotel!!
