Savannah’s River Street Inn Oozes Southern Charm

With its cobblestone streets and historic homes shaded by Spanish Moss, Savannah. Pulsating Southern charm and culture are cornerstones of what makes this beautiful city, from the architecture to the cuisine. March to July are some of the best months to visit Savannah, as streets are bustling with the excitement of festival season and balmy temperatures coax the blooms out of hibernation.

Located inside a restored 200-year-old cotton warehouse, the River Street Inn offers unbeatable views of both the Savannah River and Historic District. Interiors sport old-fashioned charm with subtle hints of Savannah’s chronicled past. 

The main focal point of the hotel is its spacious winder staircase, connecting the building’s five floors. Wooden floors and wrought-iron railings complement one another against the floor-to-ceiling wall paintings depicting Savannah’s impressive scenery. Each level has a landing space with historical portraits, quaint nooks, and window seats for optimal River-viewing. The top floor boasts city views.

The 99 guest rooms are designed to evoke the charm of the building’s 200-year-old past: harmoniously blending modernism with a historical twist. The striking interiors don exposed brick walls, cotton-barrel imagery, window walls with striking views, and subtle pops of color against whites and grays. Bathrooms pack nourishing Beekman products. 

Home to four locally-owned restaurants onsite, the River Street Inn makes it effortless for guests to experience some of Savannah’s quintessential flavors. A favorite would have to be Huey’s Southern Cafe, which serves delectable beignets with river-street views. For a sweet snack to-go, Cafe M French Cafe is the place to go. Those seeking a laid-back atmosphere and comfort foods should venture to Tubby’s Seafood or Bernie’s Oyster House. Tubby’s offers panoramic views of the River, while Bernies has seafood for all: raw, fried, and steamed! Guests of River Street enjoy a 10% discount to all restaurants above.
