Charming tourist hotel close to most tourist sites

Posted Apr 21, 2017
The River Street Inn is a gorgeous building and beautifully furnished. It is right along the waterfront and within 10-30 minutes' walking distance of all major tourist attractions in Savannah. I found the location very convenient. But it is a hotel for tourists rather than business. There is no desk and chair in the room, and the room is very, very dim with only three small lamps for lighting. So it is not ideal if you need to work. Because it is an old hotel, the rooms are not soundproof. The floorboards creak loudly when people are walking up and down the corridor or in the next room, some of the doors don't fit properly so they bang when people close them, and you can hear people's hairdryers and other sounds like coughing. If you like charming historic buildings with antique furnishings, this is a beautiful place to stay. If you need to work or you're going to be bothered by the inconveniences of an old building, then this will not be right for you.

Relaxing by the river

Posted Apr 21, 2017
Had a wonderful stay at this beautifully renovated hotel on the riverbanks. Wife and I enjoyed a free glass of wine and a nice chat with Jennifer, one of many friendly staff people. Only downside to the stay was no WIFI. They are in the midst of changing back to Comcast. No Internet was disappointing.

Wonderful hotel right in the historic district

Posted Apr 16, 2017
The staff was pleasant especially Steven his personality and hospitality alone makes this hotel shine. Steven remembers guests, assists with getting you settled in your room and packs you up for your travels home! And the water that he makes with fruit and provides to guests is amazing! You can tell he takes great pride in his work. Hope he is there when we return

The location is the most convenient spot.

Posted Apr 16, 2017
Pros: history, beauty, location, helpful staff, wine and cheese at 5pm
Cons: parking is a problem; addtional $11/day; 2blocks; 5 level garage. breakfast would be nice
Location: trolleys and tour buses stop at the hotel
you can start out your day on River Street for breakfast, then go out to any place in Savannah, returning to River Street for the evening: all of the shops, restaurants, bars, street entertainers,with a beautiful view at dusk, and then take a few steps right in the back door of the hotel.

Historic hotel on the waterfront

Posted Apr 14, 2017
The ambiance of the River Street Hotel is perfect for anyone who appreciates the history and architecture of Savannah. The location is very convenient to dine, shop, and explore the city. The brick walls in the bedroom are beautiful and provide quiet. We were very pleased with our hotel choice.

Very nice hotel in converted cotton warehouse. Large room traditionally decorated...iron four-poster bed, wingback chairs, modern bathroom, large window with view of the river. Located on the river walk area amid restaurants, bars, and shops with transportation outside the door. Quiet for sleeping. Parking in structure across the street.
