The 151-room Andaz Savannah, formerly the AVIA Savannah, is an attractive, modern hotel just a block from the river. Though standard rooms are small, all rooms have up-to-date amenities including large flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi. They also have stylish decor not often found in a chain, such as bold-patterned furniture in rich fabrics, and dark wood nightstands topped by funky lamps. The hotel also features a 24-hour fitness center, a tasty restaurant, and a small pool area with cabanas (too bad the view from the pool is of the building next door). One of the big draws here is the property's great location, as it is situated in Savannah's popular Historic District.
