On the outskirts of the Historic District
The hotel is on the outskirts of the Historic District in an area that can seem a bit sketchy at night, and the busy streets are not conducive to sight-seeing. However, numerous Historic District highlights are within walking distance.
Savannah's charming Historic District is filled with numerous parks and well-kept, architecturally-stunning historic 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.
Located on the outskirts of the Historic District, the Hampton Inn has slightly more charm than a typical mid-range chain -- rooms are decorated in old Southern style with muted floral fabrics and dark wood accents, and the pool area is usually quiet and features palm trees. But like some chains, the 154-room hotel (though close to Historic District sights) is right on a busy street, meaning some guests have trouble sleeping.
