There's also a fitness center on-site and outdoor pool, perfect for those wanting to get in some extra R & R while away.

    Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront, Autograph Collection
    Savannah, GA
    #3 in Best Hotels in Historic Downtown, Savannah
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1277 reviewsTripAdvisor (1277)
    Free WiFi

    Guests praise the Bohemian Hotel for its ideal location just steps from the Savannah River and near many of the city's top things to do. Accommodations here are dressed in red and brown decor and come outfitted with pillow-top mattresses, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers. Although the rooms are comfortable, the rooftop lounge is the real highlight for most visitors  you can enjoy excellent views of the riverfront while sipping delicious cocktails. You will also have access to two restaurants: Rocks on the River specializes in American fare and Rocks on the Roof serves up tasty tapas plates. One perk of the hotel is that it is part of the Autograph Collection properties and part of the Marriott family. As such, Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program members can use points toward a stay here.

    Andaz Savannah
    Savannah, GA
    #4 in Best Hotels in Historic Downtown, Savannah
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3538 reviewsTripAdvisor (3538)
    Free WiFi

    At Andaz Savannah, you'll get Southern hospitality but not Southern decor. The modern rooms are smartly designed with dark wood furnishings and bright pops of green, as well as convenient amenities such as complimentary Wi-Fi access, 42-inch flat-screens TV and blackout drapes. Aside from the absence of bath tubs in standard rooms, recent guests agree that these Savannah digs are cozy and luxurious. While you're here, you'll also have access to the Andaz's outdoor pool and terrace, as well as the in-house restaurant – 22 Square Restaurant earns thumbs-up from travelers for its farm-to-table Southern fare. Another bonus: It's right across the street from the City Market, so you'll also be within walking distance of many of the city's popular things to do. What’s more, the service is exceptional, with some going to far as to say it made their stay. And because Andaz is part of the Hyatt portfolio, members of the Hyatt rewards program can accrue or redeem points here.

    The Marshall House
    Savannah, GA
    #5 in Best Hotels in Historic Downtown, Savannah
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3515 reviewsTripAdvisor (3515)
    Free WiFi

    The historic Marshall House sits a few blocks south of the Savannah River in charming downtown Savannah within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, bars and museums. The modernized four-story property first opened in 1852 and is renowned as one of the country’s most haunted hotels, a reputation that it embraces in its history talks (3x per week during the wine and cheese reception; the other 2 nights there’s live music) and hallway historical displays. Standard rooms - such as the petit queen, superior queen and classic king – all have red and white bedding with wooden headboards as well as complimentary Wi-Fi, bottled water, bathrobes, in-room safes, minifridges, and an electronic charging station; some have original hardwood flooring. Some have bathrooms with walk-in showers while others have clawfoot tubs. Upgrade to a second-story suite for access to the long, shared wrought-iron balcony filled with rocking chairs overlooking E Broughton Street. On-site parking is by valet only and guests who book directly through the property receive a discount. There’s a daily breakfast served in the atrium for an additional fee. One recent guest summed up the property’s appeal succinctly: “This place is old. This place is great. History and mystery all under one roof.”

    A block south of River Street and kitty-corner to the greenspace in Emmet Park in downtown Savannah, the three-story brick historic East Bay Inn, built in 1852, offers 28 modern guest rooms.  Some are pet friendly.

Unlike some other historic inns in Savannah, East Bay Inn has elevator access to all floors. There’s no included breakfast, but daily breakfast, weekday lunch and dinner (Wed.-Sat.) are served in the underground Skyler’s Restaurant. Skyler’s is also the site of the hotel’s lauded wine and cheese reception for guests each evening. There’s nightly turn-down service and morning newspaper delivery. Parking incurs an additional fee, but passes for city parking as well as the limited on-site parking are issued at check-in.
