Adjacent is the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center is what keeps the hotel at high-occupancy levels almost year-round, because many meeting attendees stay here; vacationers predominate on the weekends. The Savannah Harbor Golf Course is open to the public and is the best bet for golfers staying in the Historic District.

Room options range from the standard Traditional room all the way up the line to a Champion’s Suite must call to request this palatial suite. Each room blends modern minimalist design with traditional Southern accents.

But arguably the best pool in Savannah, it overlooks the Savannah Harbor. There is plenty of splashy play area for the kids, while we decompress with a well-crafted cocktail and light bites from the poolside bar and grill.
