History

Established in 2013.

Another new hotel will soon rise downtown, this one from a parking lot on the edge of the historic district.

An Embassy Suites is planned for West Oglethorpe Avenue, just east of the Thunderbird Inn. The project is a development of Charleston, S.C.-based Bennett Hospitality, which built the neighboring Hampton Inn and Suites on the corner of Oglethorpe and MLK Jr. Boulevard in 2006.

Plans for the five-story, 39,856-square-foot hotel and an adjacent two-story parking garage were examined Wednesday by the Historic Board of Review. The board gave the first of two necessary approvals for the new structures.

"We're looking forward to seeing what looks like a nice building," said board chairman Brian Judson.

The hotel and parking garage will be modeled after 19th-century buildings in Savannah with an architectural nod toward the nearby Central of Georgia railroad complex. Designed by local firm Greenline Architecture, the hotel will feature 150 rooms.

    Be careful of what you leave in the room.  I had an iPad stolen out of the room.  When I reported it missing, the housekeeping staff admitted to finding it and said they would mail it to me.  I haven't seen a sign of the iPad nor anyone who will respond to requests of when it would be mailed - multiple calls to the Head Housekeeper, Wendy, and the manager have resulted in no call back.  They even asked me for my password so they could "verify it was mine", after I gave them several pieces of identifying info including the cover color and the room it was left in (how many iPads could they have found in that room).  Of course, they wanted the password so they could keep the use it.

    The nicest and most well kept hotel that I've ever stayed at. Everything about it was top notch. But, it was the hotel staff that made all the difference. Mindy was the one who took my reservation for the group of people who were going to come there for our reunion. She worked with me on everything from March until the end of September when we had the reunion. I was very pleased with the way that Mindy took care of me. There were several people who I want to mention who really made me and the other people who came to the reunion, feel very welcome and very well taken care of. Justin would be the one who I would say did the most to make sure that I was very well taken care of. Jason, Chris the bartender, Patrice, LaVonda, Ashley, Jeff, Karen, Blue, Maurice, Jasmine the cleaning lady, and John at night were very nice. There were others , but I didn't know their names. I was so impressed that I have told everyone I met and know how wonderful my stay was there.

    Fantastic new hotel. Seems they are really bending over backwards to be top notch. Facilities very pretty and brand new. Large suites. Walk in showers. Delicious huge breakfast. I usually never eat free breakfast in these hotels but this was exceptional. Made to order omelets that we're better than I've had in expensive restaurants. Fantastic place worth the money.

    Their bathtubs are so slippery that I slipped and fell and had bruises all over my right side.   When I went to the manager to tell them that they need to have rubber mats in their bathtubs, I was told that if I needed it I should have requested it.   Apparently, they're not big on safety.  She was sorry it happened but they do not offer mats unless requested.

    All I have to say is this hotel has far exceeded our expectations in every manner. As my husband and I pulled up to the hotel we were a bit worried since it is across the street from a greyhound station but this embassy suites is just jaw dropping. I love the fact that there is a nice parking garage right next to the hotel for us to park into and we could do valet but there seemed to be no point. The hotel front desk let us check in early and we were able to go out immediately and start enjoying Savannah. I was excited to find out that in addition to the free awesome breakfast that embassy suites has, this location also has free drinks and lite food from 530-730pm. This made our day since our dinner reservations are not until 930pm so we will not be starved by the time we go to eat. The rooms are gorgeous and very spacious. We will plan on staying here again I the near future and will be bringing family :)

    Good hotel to stay at. The staff were great. The room was nice. Our fridge didn't work, and we called but to no avail they didn't come fix it. They were having problems with the ac unit as well. Maybe just a bad day. They offer free appetizers and drinks for a couple hours each day in the evening. Their breakfast is killer as well. Besides maintenance, our stay was delightful.

    The Embassy Suites in Savannah was amazing. We stayed here one night as part of a 3 day road trip. It was perfect location to walk to dinner and shopping. The parking was in a garage, and easy to access. The room was HUGE! So comfortable and beyond clean. The staff at the Embassy Suites deserves 5 stars too! Everyone was incredibly polite, helpful, and extremely assertive. It's a bit pricey, but worth it! The breakfast was fresh and had lots of variety. The evening reception was great, very spacious environment, so you could enjoy the company of those you sat with, verse other hotels where its very crowded.

    We stayed here for a 3 day getaway in savannah and we were delighted with this hotel! The ambiance is lush. The style is beach chic. Everything from the plush towels to the granite counters in the bathroom really make you feel like you're staying in luxury. You are within walking distance to everything! But the trolley tours start right next to the hotel if you'd rather ride.

    The complimentary reception was fun! An array of house drinks was offered and the house red was tasty.

    We had dinner in the restaurant. Fried green tomatoes were very well seasoned and crispy. The tomato bisque, however,  was bitter. The Baja fish tacos were very good. Spicy with fresh cilantro. My husbands mahi mahi was cooked perfectly.

    The cook to order breakfast is spot on and the staff are very friendly.

    We couldn't recommend this hotel more!

    I booked a king suite with a sofa bed for the kids. After arriving in Savannah we drove around for a while looking for parking without success. Check in wasn't until 4 pm, but we decided to try anyway. Well we lucked out! They didn't have a room ready, but let us park in the hotel lot (for a daily fee), and took our bags, so we didn't have to worry about leaving them in the rental. They told us the room would be ready in an hour or two, and recommended a good nearby restaurant for lunch, The Distillery. Just as we were finishing lunch we got a call from the hotel that the room was ready. Perfect! When we got there we found that we had been upgraded to the two bedroom suite, with a king bed for me and my wife, and two queen beds for the kids. The room was HUGE, with a living room/kitchenette area, and TWO bathrooms. The beds were comfy with feather pillows. Everything was immaculately clean. The breakfast in the morning was made to order and yummy. We also went to the evening happy hour for free drinks. OK it wasn't top shelf liquor, but they had Dos Equis on tap so I was happy. It was one of our BEST hotel experiences. No one wanted to check out, so they gave us a late checkout. Bonus!

    This place was wonderful! It is beautiful and clean! Loved the location and the southern hospitality. They go above and beyond to help you get anywhere you need to go. The food and snacks for the manager's reception were exceptional and better than  any embassy suites that I have been to nationwide. You can't beat a free breakfast with southern delicacies. Thank you

    This Hotel is not quite one year old, and reading through some of the reviews may have gone through a few "growing" pains.
    My stay was about as good as it gets.    I was happiest with the staff, every ONE  helpful cheerful, and attentive.
    It is a brand new hotel so everything is top shelf, beautifully done rooms, with high end furnishings a  sparkling bath with granite and great linens.
    Breakfast could only be called bountiful. The  evening reception was welcome with some healthy options (after over indulging  in  all that scrumptious southern cooking).
    I love Embassy Suites for all the conveniences they offer  and I found this Hotel to be one of the nicest ever.

    I gave this place only two stars for a variety of reasons.  First, the location is deceiving.   It's on the fringe of downtown.  It borders the projects which might not be comfortable for everyone.   Second, they seemed more interested in keeping riff-raff out than keeping customers in.  We have 3 kids and we needed a roll away bed for one of our kids.  They apparently don't have those.  REALLY!!!  Every other hotel we've been to has had rollaway beds.  Its my opinion they're afraid of people packing mass amounts of people in their rooms.  Third, they only had one valet who also did room deliveries,  so you never could get your car when you needed it.
    The positives include a really nice gym and an overall clean facility.

    I'm glad we stayed here.

    It was quiet; being a few blocks away from Bay Street was well worth being able to sleep past 6AM, which is when the big trucks start rumbling to and from the docks. We were still close enough to everything that we walked exclusively, though our legs did get a little sore from the exercise.

    The room was comfortable. The bed was fantastic and the second room useful as my husband likes to wake earlier, whereas I'd prefer to sleep in a little.

    It was clean. No odors, nothing old or dated. The little details, including the upscale furniture and granite counter-tops, made me feel like I was truly on vacation.  Even the shampoo and conditioner were great, and I bring my own because I'm picky.

    The breakfast was nice, but slightly limiting as a vegetarian. My only source of protein was eggs, and while cooked-to-order eggs and omelettes is really nice, I got sick of eggs after a few days. Other than eggs, it was fried potatoes, biscuits, and a plethora of other starches. I'd have been over-the-moon if they had anything veggie-specific. Even just a frozen veggie-sausage pattie that they threw on the griddle for me instead of an egg.

    The evening reception was nice, even though we only hit it up once. All-you-can-drink well drinks, plus pretzels, vegetables, tortilla chips and dips. Not a bad way to spend a few hours. My husband and I sat on the couches and read, and the manager (Justin, I believe), was unbelievably attentive. He swung past asking if we wanted more drinks, and after that he automatically brought us new drinks as we finished ours.

    The pool was clean, but small. No swimming laps, or even really swimming at all. It was a nice place to sit outside and read, though. A hot-tub would have been dynamite, especially after our sore legs from hours of walking, but you can't get everything you want.

    After walking around and seeing countless other hotels and inns, I'm very happy with the Embassy Suites and would stay here again in a heartbeat if ever I find myself back in Savannah.

    This is a beaituful hotel. Good location. Quiet and comfortable. Very good complimentary breakfast.

    We requested no perfume or air freshener in our room and it was pretty whiffy. They swore up and down it hadn't been sprayed so perhaps this was leftover from the day before, but it bothered my allergies a lot, I coughed and wheezed all night. Windows didn't open, no way to air it out.

    We got in late after a long day driving so ordered room service. Not very good, really pricey for what it was and there was a service charge on top of that.

    Ventilation blew right onto the bed. Couldn't get out of the draft. Noisy too.

    The next day when we got up I had 15 flea bites on my feet and ankles. I had taken off my socks and shoes because my feet were puffy from sitting in the car for many hours and spent about an hour on the couch, that's when it happened. I complained and they said they'd call their bug man. No offer of any kind of compensation.

    Not going back here!

    Super nice rooms and common areas.  Close to everything.  Parking is very close, so self-park is not a problem.  The room is beautiful.  Had a few problems with tv and shower rod on checkin, but fixed immediately.  Sometimes slow to answer the phone at the desk, but no matter.  Concierge is very informative.  Totally recommend this place.

    Breakfast as advertised all week long for us.  No issues.

    Firstly, the breakfast sucked. They were out of ham for omelets, sugar, ketchup, and orange juice. The breakfast is free, but there is a reason. They said they were waiting on the truck to arrive. The chef personally told us he didn't know how to make oatmeal (thick as a brick). My omelet was so greasy that after one bite, I couldn't eat it. I swear it must have been made with margarine or something because I have never had that taste.

    Rooms were very clean. There is an extensive room service menu. There is a downstairs bar and restaurant (get a free drink from 4-5pm for happy hour).

    Location was right on the border of ghetto and Savannah. It is a hard hotel to find for sure (had to use a GPS every time). Be wary of walking around outside at night.

    Bed is not a foam mattress, so not awesome. It is very clean just not the best bed.

    Because of the location, we would not come back.

    This review sums up 3 or more stays at this hotel.  First, the hotel just opened in early 2014 I believe, so the common areas are a modern design with open large entrances, a spacious bar and nice leather seating areas.  Second, the pool area, while I did not use it, I did make a close examination and it is well executed in courtyard mode on the ground floor.  Also stationed around the corner from the pool is a cozy open raised fire-pit which takes the chill off those cozy days and nights when perhaps you want to be outside and read a book or just relax and absorb the warmth on your feet.  Third, the rooms are a well designed suite configuration with a small bar area, built in college-style fridge, sink and storage.   The small fridge seems to be one of the newer frost-free models which means no caked ice from the prior occupant but the downside is these did not seem to chill as well as I'm accustom to.  I like my beverages COLD and I'd say these were chilled.  The rooms I've hit also have a large desk and comfortable couch separated from the bedroom areas with doors that block the noise and light if the kids perhaps want to stay up while you crash.  Your configuration may vary.  The bathroom is also separated from the bedroom and seating areas by SOLID doors, so no issues there.  The bathrooms have twin sinks, and a walk-in roomie glass-walled shower.  The tidiness level is spotless.

    As for the included accommodations, the wi-fi worked well, no issues were noted on any trip with pickup or speeds.  The included HOT breakfast has been awesome almost every time.  Full service omelets if you like or self-serve eggs, bacon, ham, oatmeal, flaky biscuits, fresh melon or seasonal fruits, bagels, cereals, gravy, milk, OJ, beverages and fresh hot brewed coffee. Easily, THIS is one of the BEST hot breakfast meals I've ever had included with the room fee.  My guess, if you buy this locally, a breakfast of this caliber will easily set you back $15 per person so that helps when traveling with families!  The only breakfast issue I've ever had, which was in September, and is summed up as a matter of bacon preference - wiggly or crispy?   One morning ALL the bacon was "uber limpy" and there was not a crispy piece to be found anywhere.  But to the staff's credit, they realized that no one was actually taking the bacon and replaced the entire tray promptly with another pan with much better selections!  The wait staff has always been prompt to clear the used plates and deliver the special order omelets.  My suggestion would be to place the staff tip jar in a more visible location rather than way over in the bar area because there it is missed more often than it should based on the great services.

    There is also a multi-level parking deck adjacent to the hotel so you do not have to fight the street parking.  The charge is $15 / day which is not out of line compared to comparable and larger metro areas.  

    Overall, this is my favorite hotel to stay at in Savannah if you want a bit quieter location and do want to be caught up in the more touristy riverfront crowds.   However, it is a quick cab ride or not an impossible walk (plot it beforehand) to reach the riverfront area or the main downdown.  This is also an ideal hotel to stay in when delivering studens to SCAD as it is close to campus with several of the major lower-classmen dorms only a couple of blocks away.  

    The room pricing is high-moderate depending on how much you value and use the included amenities, especially that awesome breakfast!  Overall 4.5 with the benefit of the doubt for the excellent staffing. Cheers.

    We picked this hotel due to its location relative to the Savannah historic district and due to the fact that it was an Embassy Suites. When I used to travel on business - I frequently stayed at Embassy Suites and always found them to be exceptionally nice hotels.  This hotel is relatively new, very clean, very quiet and very well maintained.  The complimentary breakfast at an Embassy Suites is not only hot but includes eggs and omelets cooked to order, bacon, sausage, pastries, oatmeal and cereal and selection of juices.  And there's an evening reception (5:30 - 7:30) that includes complimentary beer and wine with a selection of light appetizers.

    The hotel is about  1/2 mile from the historic River Street district and you can easily walk from River St to the hotel in 15-20 minutes.  The City of Savannah also runs a free shuttle (there is a boarding stop in the transit center across from the hotel and another at the visitor's center which is only a block away). The only downside to the shuttle is that it only runs until 9:00 - so if you want to have dinner down by the River District - you may need to walk back.

    This hotel deserves 4.5 stars. The only things missing are safes in the room, along with being one block away from MLK Blvd. In spite of those two items, this is unlike any Embassy Suites I've ever seen--it's a first-class hotel barely in a less-than-desirable neighborhood. Having said that, we didn't feel the least bit uncomfortable walking to/from our hotel, even after dark.

    The suites are large, newly appointed, and clean. There are two large-screen (48"?) HDTV's in each suite. The bedding is very comfortable.

    Free breakfast is included in the price of the room, and it includes just about anything you could want. Free self-parking is about 25' from the hotel, with limited access by room card. In short, you get a lot for your money at this hotel.

    Clean, close to City Market (about a 5-10 minute walk). Pricey but we had points to cover the entire price. The managers reception was awesome, the breakfast was amazing, they let us do a late check out since it was our anniversary.  I have no regrets staying here....and would stay again for a special occasion!

    A terrific, albeit pricey 4 night stay in a comfortable suite that's walking distance to everything in the historic district.  I was a little surprised to have to pay extra for parking considering I had already paid a very hefty price for the room.  The pillows leave a lot to be desired - too soft and just flatten to a pancake, otherwise, the bed is fairly comfortable, even for someone who is used to an adjustable sleep number bed.

    The manager's reception is a refreshing welcome to the hotel each late afternoon/early evening, drinks on the house and light snacks to munch on while chatting with the staff, management, family or simply watching some football at the bar.  The staff is friendly but may sometimes be a little overzealous when it comes time to clear half empty glasses from a table.  More than once I looked up to watch the game to later look down and find my beverage had been cleared from the table without my knowing it.

    The "made to order" breakfast is simply a buffet with an option to ask the cooks to make specific omelettes or eggs done a specific way.  Get there either very early or sometime after 9:30 AM because from 8ish to 9:30ish it's almost impossible to find a place to sit down and eat.

    Overall, a nice stay.

    This Embassy is one of the newest and by far a superior choice when staying in Savannah. Here is a breakdown of the overall quality of this stunning property.

    Service: Staff is superb! Becki in the bar is one of the most friendly and attentive bartenders I have ever experienced. The front desk staff is super efficient and all pitch in to help out.

    Housekeeping/Cleanliness- fresh, clean, spotless. Staff is friendly and attentive the upmost detail.

    Internet: Great speed

    Breakfast: made to order/chef prepared omelette, sliced fruits, fresh Danish.

    Thank you for the amazing time!

    Overall, this was a good place for us, tucked away from the hustle of the city, which is great with a toddler.  The walls were probably nice and thick, too, as there were other kids staying on our floor and we only saw (and heard) them in the hallways and not from our room.  That said, you really gotta work hard to earn those stars, people...
    3 stars for: good for kids and family, quiet area, friendly and helpful front desk staff.
    Not 5 stars because: not a "short walk" from the main Savannah Historic District.  You really are on the outskirts.  I'm sure in a few years this neighborhood will provide more for the traveler, as there was a lot of construction going on nearby.
    Really NOT 5 stars because: the restaurant "opened" for the evening at 5pm.  Meaning, you could order from the menu at that time.  Expect, however, to wait up to 45 minutes for the cook to actually cook your food.  It was difficult to find wait staff in their restaurant.  One day we inquired about the lunch hours for the restaurant and were told "the gas ovens are being worked on right now so there's no lunch today."  Um... okay.  No sign, no letting guests know, nothing?  We didn't mind heading out for our meals and greatly appreciated daily breakfast, but they shouldn't have the only restaurant in the hotel closed (nevermind cooking later than published dinner hours) without notice.  This was the biggest thing for us.

    I am Embassy Suites loyal and whenever I get the chance to visit one of their hotels, I jump at it.  I knew that this location would be nice, based on how new it was.  I can honestly say that this was the nicest Embassy Suites that I have ever been to.

    The sprawling lobby is very welcoming.  The valet and check in staff were extremely friendly and they allowed me to check in hours before the normal check in time.  Our room was pretty standard for an ES room.

    The happy hour was fabulous (5:30 - 7:30).  Free beer, wine, liquor, and snacks.  Normally the snacks consist of gold fish or chips and salsa.  This location had nachos with chili cheese and even some cole slaw to feast on.  There was a roaring fire in the lobby, which was nice to relax near.

    The breakfast was great, as well, with all of the normal breakfast offerings.  This hotel was a bit more expensive than some of the other local chain hotels, but it was worth every penny!
