Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Large pool with a kiddy area, cabanas, and great views of Savannah
  • Upscale (and expensive) spa with extensive menu
  • Large rooms come with wonderful Heavenly beds and high-end amenities (including free Wi-Fi)
  • Free ferry service to Savannah’s Historic District
  • Lots of on-site activities: bocce, croquet, loaner bicycles, s’mores by the fire and more
  • PGA golf course and marina on-site
  • Two solid restaurants and a lounge with evening wine tastings

Cons

  • Secluded location on an island
  • Parking for a fee
  • Room decor is a tad generic
  • Fitness center, spa, and golf course are quite a trek from the main building (though there’s shuttle service)
  • Pets allowed, but at a pricey fee
  • Resort fee to cover "free" Wi-Fi and access to other amenities

Bottom Line

The 403-room Westin Savannah is an upper-middle-range resort located on an island across the river from Savannah’s Historic District. The main draws here are the PGA golf course and the high-end spa, but there are other features that make this a great pick: a large pool, two solid restaurants, spacious rooms with high-end amenities (and most with great views of the city), and dozens of activities available daily for the whole family. It's true that the location is secluded, but there’s a free ferry that takes guests to the lively riverfront area (a quick ride straight across the river from the resort).

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On an island across from the Historic District, right by Savannah’s Convention Center

The Westin Savannah is located on Hutchinson Island, a large strip of land situated across the river from the Historic District and connected via the Talmadge Memorial Bridge. There’s little in the immediate neighborhood -- actually, only the Convention Center is within walking distance -- but a short cab or ferry ride will get you to the heart of town.

The Historic District is the main reason to visit Savannah -- it has old Southern charm with numerous parks and tons of well-kept, architecturally stunning historical buildings. The nightlife isn't as lively here as in other big cities in the South, but most of Savannah's bars (like infamous Pinkie Master's) are in this neighborhood.

The Historic District is bordered by the Savannah River and Forsyth Park, and includes the lively (and touristy) Riverfront and the casual City Market area, full of restaurants and bars.

  • 25-minute drive to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport
  • 10-minute drive or ferry ride to various restaurants and bars in the Historic District
  • 10-minute drive or a 10-minute ferry ride plus a 10-minute walk to City Market, a casual eating scene
  • 10-minute drive or a 10-minute ferry ride plus a 15-minute walk to Telfair Museum of Art
  • 10-minute drive or 10-minute ferry ride plus a 15-minute walk to the Savannah College of Art and Design
  • 10-minute drive or a 10-minute ferry ride plus a 20-minute walk to Roundhouse Railroad Museum
  • 15-minute drive to Forsythe Park, one of Savannah's most popular public spaces
  • 15-minute drive to the Savannah Golf Club
  • 15-minute drive to King-Tisdell Cottage, the Museum of Black History
