Review Summary


Pros

  • Great location in the Historic District
  • Superb views from higher level rooms
  • Rooms have free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs
  • Crabtree & Evelyn bath products
  • American fine dining at "DeSoto Grille"
  • Large rooftop pool, with great views of the city

Cons

  • Noise from street
  • Some complaints of slow elevators
  • Pricey parking

Bottom Line

The 246-room Hilton Savannah DeSoto places visitors within walking distance from many popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The newly-renovated DeSoto Grille delivers a luxurious Southern vibe, with tall ceilings and large chandeliers; however, the rest of the hotel lacks the sought-after Historic District charm. Instead, the Hilton Savannah DeSoto offers guests comfortable but chain-like rooms with so-so "Savannah" touches, such as framed photos of the city on the walls. The rooms on higher levels have excellent views of the city.

Location

In the Historic District, with plenty of beautiful outdoor spaces, historic buildings, and lively bars

Map of Hilton Savannah DeSoto

Savannah's Historic District is home to plenty of restaurants and bars, most within a short walking distance from the hotel. The famous Forsyth Park is just a 10-minute walk south, and other outdoor spaces can be found just minutes from the front door.

The surrounding area has that old Southern charm, with numerous stunning historic buildings. The nightlife isn't as lively as other big cities in the South but most 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.

  • 20-minute drive to Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport
  • 2- to 5-minute walk to various restaurants and bars in the Historic District
