Riverfront hotel in Savannah’s historic district

Originally a storehouse for cotton during the 1800s--when Savannah's waterfront boasted a bustling cotton exchange--River Street Inn sits on a bluff overlooking the Savannah River. The inn comprises five floors wrapped around a central atrium. Throughout the property, antique furniture and period décor create an old-world ambiance with modern conveniences. The inn's central location at the north end of Savannah's historic district puts guests within easy walking distance to the bars and restaurants of River and Broughton Streets.

Highlights
  • Great location overlooking River Street and the Savannah River
  • Trolley tours of Savannah's historic district stop outside the hotel
  • Walking distance to many downtown bars, restaurants and attractions
Rooms

Southern ambiance permeates the inn's décor with antique and antebellum-style furnishings. Each room has its own personality, from hardwood floors and four-poster beds to plush carpeting and wrought-iron headboards. All 86 rooms overlook the Savannah River or downtown Savannah. Watch large ocean freighters ply the busy port river from French-style balconies found in some rooms.

Features

Built in 1817 out of ballast stones left by visiting ships, the first two floors of the inn make up a section of Factor's Walk--a network of narrow streets, alleys and bridges that supported one of the South's busiest cotton ports. Numerous restaurants, bars, shops and tour options surround the hotel. Visit Huey's Southern Café for low country favorites like shrimp, oysters and fried green tomatoes. Guests can buy tickets for trolley tours of the city or river cruises from the front desk. A complimentary evening guest reception with wine and hors d'oeuvres is held Monday to Saturday. A fitness center with professional-grade cardio equipment is located onsite.

Great stay.

Perfectly located hotel with a room overlooking the Savannah River with its huge container ships passing by. Great hotel in an historic building and with a great restaurant, Huey's, on the bottom floor. Wonderful service. Set on the Savannah riverfront, just another treat for the trip.

nice location, beautiful, but musty smell

room and hotel and building is beautiful, and location could not be better. however, the room was stuff and smelled like mildew when the AC was on..and since the window did not open, we were stuck.... still with cheap price i might do again if i could ensure the mildew was gone.

Easy location

My sister and I stayed at the River Street Inn for 4 nights. The hotel was perfect for our stay. Clean, comfortable and great location. Only comment would be that our room was on the Bay Street side at street level. It was rather dark. River side would be nicer, and yes I presume visitors pay a premium for them.

River Street Inn

Wonderful Hotel with the Perfect Location in Savannah. One Caveat, it is difficult to find in the dark. The Signs and the Hotel are very poorly identified after dark. However, it is definitely worth the effort.

Great Location

You cannot stay in any place better located to enjoy Savannah. All the history and great restaurants are within walking distance, and you are on the waterfront to watch all those big container ships go by, you can almost touch them you re that close. The staff just does not know how to wipe down or vacuum

Vic's is in the same boardwalk, the best service and food, and the Pink house is right across the street. The Trolley companies pick you up right out front for the tours

Very Slow WIFI Unhelpful Staff

After checking in our upgraded fee room, we discovered the wifi connection speed to be very slow. We asked to change to a room with a better signal. They moved us to a smaller room that had an even slower speed Wifi. The bed was lumpy and the staff was unfriendly and unhelpful. The carpet was dirty in the room. I would not recommend this hotel
