My husband and I needed a weekend getaway and chose DeSoto. So glad we did. We had and excellent room on the 13th floor with an amazing view. The staff was wonderful. The from was clean and comfortable and mostly quiet. The only issue we had was someone across the hall from us letting their room door slam at 7am both mornings of our stay. Not the hotels fault but made sleeping in a bit difficult. I would stay here again if I’m ever in Savannah.

Rooms very noisy and small with low ceilings. Shower did not work properly and several lights were not working properly. You could loudly hear people in hall, getting off the elevator and in other rooms. I would not recommend this hotel.
