Historic District, Savannah, Georgia

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • In the Historic District, overlooking the Savannah River
  • All rooms have flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi
  • Some rooms have four-poster beds, balconies, and decorative fireplaces
  • Free wine and cheese receptions and homemade chocolates
  • Small fitness center has modern exercise equipment
  • Great seafood selection at Bernie's Restaurant & Bar and Tubby's

Cons

  • Beds have lower quality comforters rather than duvets
  • No on-site parking
  • Some complaints of noise

Bottom Line

Overlooking the Savannah River, this former cotton storehouse has been reborn as an 86-room hotel that takes up an entire block in the northern part of the Historic District. It’s a mid-range property, but it has some nice touches, like a small but well-equipped fitness center and free wine and cheese hours. Built in 1817, its stone and brick walls, hardwood floors, and inner atrium give the River Street Inn more character than most hotels of this category. It’s an old building, so rooms are somewhat small for the price, but they feature classic décor, large windows, and flat-screen TVs.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the northern edge of the Historic District, one block from the Savannah River

Located one block from the Savannah River, the hotel is just a few minutes' walk from dozens of restaurants and shops. There are three parks within a two-block radius and many major tourist attractions can be reached on foot.

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.

The Historic District is bordered by the Savannah River and Forsyth Park, and includes the Riverfront and City Market areas. Riverfront is a (somewhat) recently revitalized area, with restaurants, galleries, shops, and bars. City Market is a more diverse and casual version of Riverfront, with lots of live music and vendors selling locally made wares.

  • 20-minute drive to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport
  • 2-minute walk to various restaurants and bars in the Historic District
  • 6-minute walk to City Market, a casual eating scene
  • 9-minute walk to Telfair Museum of Art
  • 13-minute walk to the Savannah College of Art and Design
  • 17-minute walk to Roundhouse Railroad Museum
  • 17-minute walk to Forsyth Park, one of Savannah's most popular public spaces
  • 5-minute drive to The Savannah Golf Club
  • 7-minute drive to King-Tisdell Cottage, the Museum of Black History
