ACCOMMODATIONS IN SAVANNAH

Welcome! If this is your first time here, my name is Erin, and I live in Savannah. I enjoy helping visitors plan their trips, and since choosing where to stay is usually one of the most difficult trip-planning decisions, I’ve listed my favorite accommodations in Savannah below based on location.

This handy map divides the city into five distinct hotel “zones,” from River Street down to Forsyth Park. In my Savannah First-Timer’s Guide ebook, I describe each zone in detail. You’ll learn which areas are more residential or romantic vs. which zones have the highest concentration of restaurants and bars.
