Cons

Bottom Line

The small Planters Inn is certainly an authentic way to experience the Historic District -- the inn's 60 rooms are decidedly Savannah, with details such as four-poster beds and dark wood accents. Some rooms even have cozy fireplaces and balconies. But some of the "charm" means just plain out of date -- some rooms still have tube TVs. The bathrooms, on the other hand, are marble and modern. The Planters Inn's prime central location makes it a great choice for first-time visitors to the city.

Location

In the heart of the Historic District, next door to a great restaurant

Map of Planters Inn

Savannah's Historic District packs plenty of restaurants and bars, most within a short walking distance from the Planters Inn. One of note, The Pink House, is right next door. The inn is also within walking distance of several museums and just a few blocks away from the Savannah River.

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 Market City areas. The Hyatt sits along the River border.
