Review Summary


Pros

  • Great historic district location overlooking the river
  • Rooms are sleek, with dark wood accents, iPod docks, and flat-screen TVs
  • A restaurant with river views, a coffee shop, and a lounge
  • A large fitness center with a stretching studio, and an indoor pool
  • Terrace for scenic sunsets over the river
  • Numerous meeting rooms and ballrooms for events

Cons

  • Standard room bathrooms are cramped
  • Interior rooms only have windows that look into the lobby
  • Fee for Wi-Fi, and valet parking only

Bottom Line

The 351-room Hyatt Regency's highlight is its location in the Historic District: within walking distance of numerous museums and restaurants and overlooking the Savannah River. Rooms are sleek, with dark wood accents, iPod docks, and flat-screen TVs; many rooms have river or city views, but some look into the lobby with no outside view, making them feel more low-brow and dreary. The bathrooms in standard rooms are small, but rooms in general are a good size, and the on-site restaurant, coffee shop, and fitness center are convenient.

Location

On the Savannah River in the Historic District

Map of Hyatt Regency Savannah

Savannah's Historic District packs plenty of restaurants and bars, most within a short walking distance from the Hyatt Regency. The hotel is also within walking distance of several museums.

Savannah's charming Historic District is filled with numerous parks and well-kept, architecturally stunning historical 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 Market City areas. The Hyatt sits along the River border.
