I love Kimpton Hotels.  They are far and away my favorite brand. Free wine happy hours, $10 minibar credit for members (sign-up is free), free WIFI, boutique hotel style and friendliness, with the amenities of a bigger hotel. The Brice is the newest Kimpton hotel and recently opened in the Savannah historic district.  If my conference wasn’t held at the Hyatt Regency I would have stayed here.

The Brice is on Bay St. steps away from River St. Savannah:

*Tip: Members (sign up is free) get $10 mini-bar credit, free WIFI, and the ability to book last minute deals on Kimpton hotels.

The Hyatt Regency Savannah was where Fitbloggin ‘14 was held.  The waterfront hotel had great views, spacious rooms, and was so close to everything tourists come to see and do.

If I was interested in sightseeing and being part of the action (going out, clubbing, etc.) I would stay here again.

Planters Inn is close to the river but not on the river.  Instead it sits in the same square and next door to my favorite Olde Pink House Restaurant.

Planters Inn has more historic charm and free wine happy hour with h’ordeuvres. I am a sucker for free wine.  If I was interested in a romantic weekend, this would be a good option. When I stayed here before, we used Hotwire- apparently it is common to get Planters Inn if you chose a highly rated 4 star hotel.

Savannah has many gorgeous B&Bs in converted historic homes. Some of them are even haunted. Some of the options are Forsyth Park Inn, The Gastonian, Kehoe House, and Eliza Thompson House. Some are more expensive than others but staying in a B&B would provide the real historic feel and to be close to the history (and ghosts!) that Savannah has to offer.

Real Savannah Ghost! (maybe):

    Planters Inn was also great for being in walking distance of so much! I’m glad Riley and I could help you find a romantic hotel and relieved her screaming didn’t ruin it for you. 🙂
