Near the Savannah River in the Historic District
Savannah's Historic District packs plenty of restaurants and bars, most within walking distance from the Doubletree. The Doubletree is also just a short walk from City Market, a cluster or restaurants and shops, and the Telfair Museum of Art.
Savannah's charming Historic District is filled with numerous parks and well-kept, architecturally stunning historical buildings. The nightlife isn't as lively here as in other big Southern cities, but many of Savannah's bars (like infamous Pinkie Master's) are in the Historic District -- mostly thanks to the young crowd from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
The Historic District is bordered by the Savannah River and Forsyth Park, and includes the Riverfront and Market City areas.
The highlight of this 150-room Doubletree is its location in the Historic District, within walking distance of numerous restaurants, shops, and museums. The warm lobby, with wood-paneled walls, a fireplace, and leather couches, lends the hotel a genuine Southern feel. The rooms attempt the same vibe (with plaid curtains and poster beds) but have a more generic vibe, and the bathrooms are cramped. Overall, it's a good value for those visiting Savannah, with free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, a small fitness center, and a heated outdoor pool (nice for families). And the free cookies don't hurt!
