The Holiday Inn Express was a perfect location for visiting all Savannah has to offer. The staff; especially, the concierge Sheila Mathis and breakfast personnel, were so knowledgeable and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and well maintained. This hotel is my choice for my next Savannah visit.

Hotel's Favorite
Great for real GREAT location. Just steps from all the best spots and restaurants. Easy parking, only $20 and they keep the hotel very clean. When we first got there we were greeted by a security guard, a super nice gentleman that explained everything and helped with the whole parking situation. Unfortunately, I didn’t get his name, but he was working at the door on 11/25 around 11 am, very nice and helpful. They keep the rooms very clean, no complaints with that, there were several sanitizing stations throughout the hotel and masks are mandatory, making us feel very safe. Breakfast was really tasty, fresh and everything prepackaged. I highly recommend this hotel and will visit again without a doubt.

I visited this location with friends for a birthday celebration event. The staff was excellent !! The front desk was very kind, informed and accommodating. We were greeted with smiles and a wealth of attention and focus. The Concierge Team was outstanding; especially the services of Sheila Mathis. She provided us with great entertainment, setup our reservations for dining and kept us informed of local events to attend. Sheila Mathis, @SheilaMathis , really made us feel like family !! The facility was very clean, well maintained with roomy bedrooms and friendly staff. We spent hours on the rooftop pool and lounge area, which was comfortable and very inviting. I will definitely be back to visit in the future.

Excellent location! Walking distance to everything. Very clean rooms and great complimentary breakfast! Also spacious sitting area and tables to eat. Friendly staff. Tip: Park in the garage next door for $6 instead of paying $40 for valet. They use the same parking garage.

This hotel is located in a great place that provides an easy launching point to go down to the river or exploring the historic district's squares. There is a public parking garage almost adjacent to the hotel. The one time that it was full, we were able to find parking about 2 blocks away, but the cost was more. The lobby was clean and well appointed. One night we ordered pizza for our group and needed plates and silverware. The person working the desk got some supplies from the breakfast area for us. Breakfast was a rotating selection of scrambled eggs and biscuits and gravy, or omelets. The pancakes and cinnamon rolls got positive reviews from our group. We had a room on the 7th floor on the river side of the hotel. The view was amazing, so much so that we kept our curtains open to enjoy it during our whole stay. We requested full service, but received limited light service. That wouldn't have been a problem, except we ran out of towels. They did accommodate us with fresh towels, and that is our only complaint. We would stay in this exact hotel again when we visit Savannah in the future.

Very convenient location in the historic district A few minutes walk to E River Street Helpful and pleasant staff. We had two dislikes, the ‘hot’ breakfast was barely warm. They only offer Valet parking at $39 per night. I’m sure it’s comparable to other hotels. I personally would rather spend that money on something else. We parked next door at the Bryan Street parking garage, and after 3 nights, the total was $38, less than one night’s valet parking

Stayed in mid-July. The location and price of this hotel could only be rivaled by the one or two hotels across the street. This hotel is in the center of the historic district, so close to all those wonderful places you should not miss in Savannah, like the river walk, Leopold's Ice Cream, and Lady & Sons restaurant! The hotel and room was clean, surprisingly quiet, and had some neat amenities. The free breakfast was the best breakfast we have had at a hotel since COVID began. Most hotels are provided wrapped breakfast sandwiches or some other half-hearted attempt. This was a warm breakfast with lots of options like were typical pre-COVID. The pool and gym on the roof level were super-cool. The gym was tiny (guessing 20' x 12') but it got the job done. The roof-top veranda near the pool was neat and provided an amazing view of the Savannah River and bridge. People went up there just to sip some wine and enjoy the view. It was a thoughtful touch that they provided infused ice water in the lobby for guests for the hot Savannah days. We had a great view of Bay St from our room and while we were on a low floor, we heard no street noise. The black out curtains allowed for sleeping in too. The only bummer was they do not have rollaways. The rooms have a max of 2 beds for 4 people. Nice toiletries too. Customer Service was very nice and helpful. Check-In was easy and they kept our bags until our room was ready (we arrived way early). Valet parking is provided but unnecessary. Parking is easy in the parking deck literally right next door, but note it has a max of 7' height if you have a car top carrier. We saved a couple bucks parking in the street in the plaza nearby since Sundays are free parking. Highly recommend and since we love Savannah, we will definitely stay there again.

This was our first trip to Savannah! We wanted a place that was within walking distance to everything. This is the place! We enjoyed the breakfast each morning. July 4th we watched the fireworks from the rooftop pool! Everything in the hotel was clean. And the most important, the hotel staff were so sweet to us. This being our first trip, I had several questions and they were very helpful! I will definitely stay here again!

Thee room was very clean and well appointed. Breakfast, which is included, was adequate and a big step up from the former continental breakfast offering. But the real high point of our stay was the staff, beginning with the valets (Sack), the concierge, Ester and all the staff that we interacted with. Sack told us that she loves to come to work because she loves her job----and it shows!
