    The valet parking is great and the lobby is impressive, but that's where the luxury stops. The rooms are TINY. The bathroom was so small that we kept bumping our hips on the stupid curved counter as we walked in and out. The A/C unit blocks more than half of the window, not that it mattered since our view was of a rundown school or office building of some kind. The TV was unusable because it was about a foot and a half too high for comfortable viewing and the remote had to be pointed STRAIGHT at it to work, which required lifting your arm into the air. The lighting in the rooms was the Worst! There is a 2-light swing arm sconce between the beds that is mounted so high up that you feel like its a spotlight. All the lamps in the room were awful, partly due to the fact that the hotel uses CFL's and partly because they are all pointed down like desk lamps! Also the parking is a ripoff at $15 and they lost my car. I will NEVER stay here again.

    We got into Savannah pretty late, around midnight arriving at the hotel. Parking was a pain, because the underground parking was full. We had to go across the street to the city parking deck. They were more than happy to charge this to our room... for $10 a night... the same cost as their parking... except the city parking deck only charges $8 a night. So we got hosed on the parking.
    When we made the reservation the only non smoking room was a handicap accessible room, which is OK, The shower is basically a curtain, with the shower. There is no stall, tub, or even a rubber grip to keep the water in. There are two drains on the floor, one by the toilet, and one in the shower area. After showering, the entire floor was wet and slippery. A bit dangerous, if you ask me.
    We were on the second floor, and we were street side, so it was a bit noisy at night. We're by no means early-to-bedders, but the motorcycles/noisy cars racing up the street at night kept me awake and flipping. The fan only moderately helped to mute this noise.

    The location was great, close to River street. The staff was very good as well, polite and friendly - the housekeepers were very respectful of the do-not-disturb sign.

    Overall it was a good experience and I would recommend this Hampton Inn.

    I rolled into Savannah early by about 5 hours prior to check in. The front desk clerk told me to check in around 2pm. No problem I toured the sultry city and found it lovely and I got to sweat off about 5 pounds from the humidity. I went back at 1:30 dead tired and she again said to check back at 2...still ok. She was very friendly. Two pm and they were checking in tons of people. So I went back at 2:30 and she informed me that my room was still not ready. I had not ordered anything special so I asked what was available. She said a much smaller room at a lower price. I SAID SOLD!! Give me the key lol. It was a very cute room...not that small at all and very clean. All in all a good stay and less expensive. Parking underground is free too! Continental breakfast complete with biscuits and gravy. Lord love the South!!

    Great location, very clean, very nice staff, Good and cold air in room in hot weather!  Pool on roof nice bonus for kids.  Would stay again.  Take a noise maker if you're on a low floor facing Bay St. as traffic gets a little noisy on Friday/Saturday nights.  We were on 2.  Walk down the street a couple of blocks and eat at B. Mathews Eatery...awesome.

    I was able to book a room that usually goes for $150 per night for the great price of $90 on Expedia!  The hotel was amazing and right across from River Street!  Everyone was so nice and very helpful on where to go eat (Hueys-for breakfast) and suggested a great Pub as well!  I will totally go back there on my ventures through Savannah, GA in the future.

    My wife and I arrived at this hotel late one afternoon after travelling all day.  The Hilton reservation system was down and there was no way for us to verify that we had enough points to stay there using my reward points.  We spoke with night manager, Ron Hughey, who told us not to worry.  He checked us in and made sure that we had everything we needed.  Throughout our two day stay the staff could not have been more helpful.  The hotel was perfectly clean and the room was very comfortable.  It is located on the water front historic district, so it is close to everything.

    I'm a fan of the Hilton chain hotels so when I found a Hampton right on East Bay it was an easy choice!  You're right across from the waterfront and all the fun restaurants, shops and bars on River Street.  This Hampton has a charming feel-- just like Savannah--but part of that means it's an older building.  The rooms aren't very updated and we could hear the traffic outside of our room way too easily.  There is no bar at night, but the front desk told us to walk right across the street to their sister property at the Holiday Inn Express to get our wine.  Walking across the street with my plastic cup of wine only reinforced how much fun Savannah is (no open containers) as I waved to the two officers hanging outside the hotel!  The only parking option is valet which was $15 a day, but it was nice to have them park the car and bring it up for us whenever we needed it (which was rare since the location is so great for walking).  But if you don't have a lot of luggage and want a cheaper parking option there is a garage right across the street.  The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.  While I would stay here again, I'd be inclined to pay a little more to stay at the Doubletree for an updated hotel.

    This is a decent hotel in a beautiful location (a block from River Street in the heart of historic Savannah).  It's definitely not the place to go if you don't like noise, though, as the traffic on Bay Street can sometimes be pretty loud at night.  If you keep the fan on in your room all night, it will drown out some of the noise.  Also, they do have underground parking at the hotel but it's often full so you may have to park across the street.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful though, and the room was clean.  Overall it was a pleasant stay and I would stay here again.

    Just returned from a 3 night weekday stay at this property.  Location within the historic district is great which allowed us to walk everywhere.  River walk was conveniently located across the street and there were lots of good restaurants nearby.  Our room was what you would expect at a Hampton Inn (clean, decent size, small fridge and microwave).  Only problem I had was when we returned at night after a day trip to Hilton Head, the door wasn't complete closed after the housekeeper cleaned our room.  Thankfully nothing was taken from our room but it this was still unacceptable since we had our laptops in our luggage bags.  That being said I would stay at this property again.

    I am a Diamond member and noticed that I was charged only $10/night for parking.  I also got upgraded to a better view (of river) on a high floor.

    The Hampton was clean, friendly, and remodeled. I will stay here again, however I will not use the valet parking services again. It's $15 extra a day and they lost my car. lol. . . really. So I parked the car on my own for $7 a day across the street in the parking garage. If that one is full, then there is another one a block away.

    But really, the hotel is very nice and I'll stay there again.

    We stayed at this hotel during a recent trip to Savannah.

    When we arrived, the driveway near the entrance was in a state of chaos.  There was nowhere to park while checking in, so we risked illegal street parking while we got our bags inside.  Then we declined the $20/day valet parking for the City garage parking, which is directly across the street and is much cheaper.

    Our room, and the whole hotel, for that matter, was cloaked in a thick perfume, like a powerful "air freshener" had just been sprayed all over the place.

    The Room was small and unremarkable.  One small, unopenable window.  Minifridge, mini-microwave, flat screen TV, etc.  It was perfectly serviceable, but not a great room.

    On the positive side, there was always fresh, hot coffee available for free in the lobby, the complimentary breakfast buffet was actually pretty good.

    Final positive note: they have a really nice roof deck with a swimming pool.  Great views up there.

    Bottom line: if you can get a really low price on a room, it's worth staying at this centrally located hotel, even if the facilities leave a lot to be desired.

    If you want to be rudely awaken by obnoxious loud maids at 9 AM every morning of your vacation stay here.

    The towels were hard as a rock, I'd recommend bringing your own to avoid scratches.

    Back to the maids...not only were they loud but they clearly have never taken housekeeping lessons. I am pretty sure all they did was poorly remake our bed and restock the stiff scratchy towels in the bathroom.  They cleaned NOTHING.

    The valet was $20 a day....you can park across the street for $5 a day and your car will not come back with scratches on it.

    The continental breakfast was absolutely disgusting. They say nothing in life is free...save yourself a stomach ache and eat out.

    Positives..the room itself was decent, the bed was comfy, and the front desk staff was very nice.

    For the pricey $300/night room with no view I expected better and will seek out better in my next visit to Savannah. We will NOT stay here again!

    Great location right by the River/Walk. Service was nice all around. Free breakfast in the morning and they provide coffee and tea. Clean rooms and no issues. Pool on the rooftop had a great view. Can use valet parking for $20 or the parking garage across the street. Really enjoyed my experience here.

    If I could give 10 stars I would! GREAT location for a tourist, everywhere I went in the hotel extremely hospitable and friendly staff, nice atmosphere, good continental breakfast (included), helpful and courteous front desk staff, room staff, concierge and valet. The bed is terrific.  My only complaint, the shower head is too high--it needs to be lower for us short folks--but this property still gets a 10 in my book and a 5 in yelp's book!

    We stayed here for two nights following a wedding in Charleston, SC.
    Pros: great location, nice sized room, good number of cable channels, good water pressure in shower, valet parking or city garage nearby, the great Hampton Inn breakfasts, helpful front desk staff, lobby computers, free wifi, really helpful valet parking staff.

    Nothing went wrong for us during the stay, and we got along fine with the staff, so I'm giving the hotel 5 stars for our stay.

    Great location! Room was nice, clean, and comfy. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We passed on the breakfast and the valet parking. There's a public garage almost right across the street that was less than half the price. We'll stay there again next visit.

    Like the three rules of real estate (Location, location, location), this is the main reason to stay here when you are visiting the historic city.  Within walking distance to the waterfront area and a number of good restaurants, this is a good place to stay.  The staff is friendly, the rooms are nice and although you pay a premium to park; at least it is valet.

    Would gladly stay here again.

    Great place to stay if you want to stay near River Street. The hotel is one of the better Hampton Inns that we have stayed at. The lobby was clean and appealing, The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The views from the roof located on the roof were very nice. The breakfasts were good, but not great. My only real complaint about this property is that if you opt not to use the valet parking, your choices are very limited, therefore it is almost a necessity that you use the $20 a day valet parking. I am not sure of the negative reviews posted, as we found this place very nice for our 4 day stay over the Thanksgiving holidays.

    Well for starters, Savannah is a lovely little town and definitely entertaining for a solid 4 day extended weekend.  And, if you are going to be in Savannah, you might as well be right in the heart of it.  Hampton Inn in the Historic District is perfectly situated.  You really can walk to anything you might want to see and you will have a variety of restaurants, bars and historic sites right around the corner.  In the mornings, they offer a hearty and varied hot and cold breakfast buffet.  But best of all, the staff were super friendly and helpful, even taking the time to research a number of restaurant options for our vegetarian friend.  I had a blast in Savannah, and the hotel was the icing on the cake.  Stay here if you can!

    You can't beat the location, and while it's not super fancy, the rooms are clean and comfortable.

    The mandatory $15/day valet parking charge bothers me, whether here or at any other hotel that charges the same fee.  Luckily there's a parking garage nearby that's cheaper.

    One interesting thing to note is that the Doubletree (also on Bay Street, just a couple of minutes walk away) is often less expensive and offers slightly nicer rooms and has a bar downstairs, as well as offering a nicer breakfast (a buffet as well as cooked to order items).  Of course, the Hampton Inn's continental breakfast is free, while the Doubletree breakfast is $15 per person unless it's comped as your HHonors benefit. So let's put it this way: if you're HHonors Gold tier or higher, the Doubletree breakfast is free, and better.  If you're not, the Hampton Inn breakfast is better because the Doubletree breakfast is NOT worth the money.

    Stayed here for 3 nights over Memorial weekend.
    It was a very good experience right from the check-in.

    I was there for a wedding and had quite a lot of luggage plus golf clubs.
    The $15 valet is worth it and the bell capt brought our bags up to the room PDQ.

    The only complaint I had was the noise of housekeeping in the morning.
    They also ran out of robust coffee two different mornings  during breakfast.

    The room was nice, everything worked.
    The check-out was smooth and valet got my car up quickly and the bell capt collected my bags pronoto as well.

    The real attraction here is the location. You are right on East Bay with easy access to the waterfront. Many nice restaurants and shops within easy walking distance.

    Drew and I were down in Savannah last weekend.  

    The Hampton Inn on E. Bay  street is conveniently located in the historic district as the name suggest which is so convenient.  I've stayed other areas of Savannah and nothing beats convenience.

    The only snag with this hotel was, Drew had requested a riverfront view.  The front desk person advised that that bit of information was omitted from the reservation.  She further advised that Drew should have called that morning to assure a riverfront view.  WHAT????????

    We ended up with a room on the 6th floor with smaller windows.

    The rest of the stay was good.  Free breakfast was surprisingly good.

    I would return and recommend.

    I really liked this hotel.  The hotel was decorated nicely for Christmas and the lobby is warm and inviting.  The staff is friendly and attentive.  Our king room with a city view was comfortable and had a lot us storage space.  It had a small refrigerator and microwave.  The location couldn't be much better.  Breakfast was good and there was a nice variety of proteins and carbs.  

    My only complaint is that the hotel only offers valet parking for $20.00 and the parking ticket notes that valets should be tipped.  We spent an average of $15.00 a day in valet tips.  I would rather self park for $20.00 a day.

    The positives:
    1. Very friendly valet staff !! They were even kind enough to offer to take our bags for storage while we waited for the room so we could leave the car.
    2. Close to river street and walking locals in the city.
    3. Nice welcoming entry with fireplace and seating area.

    The Negatives:
    1. Lack of general cleaning. The elevator doors looked as it they had not been cleaned in weeks. ( thank goodness the room was ok)
    2. All the doors on our floor were in need of paint. This isn't a motel 6 or econo lodge.
    3. Maid service cleaned - but they did not replace the empty tissue box that I left out to indicate it was out.
    4. While checking in - and it must have been the end of their shift- they forgot to give us the coupons for the tram and boat that were clearly part of the package room deal that we booked.
    5. This wasn't New York and yet they felt the need to way overcharge for a room - so not worth the $$.
    6. For two days they were missing half and half creamer- they really should have purchased some form a store and not used the excuse that the order hadn't come in.

    except for this place I usually find the chain a great place to stay - and I will skip this place if I visit Savannah again.

    It has been a long time since I have been in a hotel and thought I was at a friend's house.  The manager Michelle was super friendly and always eager to help.  The hotel itself is located just across the street from River Street and minutes from many of the attractions downtown.  You are literally within walking distance from everything to see and do which is good since parking can be a bear around town.  Probably my only gripe would be the only parking is valet for $20 a day, unless you wish to park in a the city lot.  Which happen to be full and it was considerably cold so a protest would have been futile.  The complementary breakfast was decent, the warm foods you probably shouldn't expect a great deal, but they have cereal and waffles from 6-10am.  They also provide fruit and coffee 24/7.  The rooms were nice and the staff were all super friendly.  I even hung out at the desk for a bit talking to them.  

    Overall, I had a wonderful stay in a beautiful city.

    If it's all about location, it's difficult to beat this Hampton Inn which is located right smack in the midst of the Historical District of Old Savannah and within easy walking distance to most of Savannah's historical sites and the best of Savannah's restaurants, such as my favorite, Olde Pink.

    Parking is by valet but one of the better, more helpful valet services to be found.

    Fantastic stay the staff are top notch! I love Ms. Pat in the breakfast area she is as sweet as can be. The staff make the hotel they are all very nice and courteous. Most of the front desk staff called us by name as we walked in.

    The rooms are comfortable, great tv selections but no in room movies to speak of but who needs that with Netflix on your I pad and whatnot.

    Pool is on the roof which is interesting tip only one elevator goes to the pool, if you can only get to the 7th floor there is a stairwell towards the back that takes you to the pool.

    The only bummer is $20 a day to park to me just add it to the cost of the room don't nickel and dime me.

    Yes, it's a Hampton Inn, but the location is pretty amazing. Unless you need to park, in which case it's fairly horrific. Luckily, they have valet parking, which helps, but unfortunately they can only hold about two cars at a time, which stinks. Feel like a yo-yo yet?

    The good news is that you're close to the waterfront shops, so you can easily walk to about anywhere - even throughout the historic district. You aren't close enough to be annoyed by loud bars, however (they are at the other end). If you'd like to check them out, you are just a couple blocks away, so it works well for those, too.

    Staff is also very friendly, for the most part, and if you happen to be in town for a First Friday event, the rooftop pool is perhaps the best place to watch the fireworks. I just wish that they would turn off (or at least turn down) that annoying light, because the rooftop next door seems to enjoy watching whatever you are doing more than the fireworks, and with the bright light, they have no problem doing so.

    My husband wanted to stay at the Hampton Inn because when he had come to Savannah before, he thought it had a great location in relation to the places we wanted to check out.  I've always been a fan of Hampton's and this one was great.  I opted for a "Historic" room which ended up on the higher floors and had a great view of Bay St. and the river too. It did have a great location!  It was super close to all the popular restaurants we wanted to visit and was right next to the river.  Even Forsyth Park and some of the other locations further into town were still within easy walking distance.

    Our room was clean and up to date.  The staff was very nice, everytime we passed someone whether they were in the middle of working or not, they greeted us.  We only went to the pool one day but it was a pretty good size for a roof pool with lots of lounge chairs.  My only complaints were that it was a little on the expensive side in my opinion for a Hampton and my husband wished there had been an exercise room. Overall I definitely recommend this place.

    I'm a Hampton regular. I rate most of their properties 4 stars. That's your standard, clean, comfortable, cozy pleasant property. Occasionally, there is one that goes beyond that, and I give 5 stars. One that falls below average would get 3.

    This property is all about being centrally located in the historic district. There is a trolley stop just outside (great way to get around) and probably the best restaurant in the city, one block away (Olde Pink House). You can read my review for both.

    The hotel staff is welcoming and friendly. We arrived on a really cold afternoon, and really appreciated the fireplace in the lobby. And of course, the cookies are the best welcome of all : )

    Really adorable hotel in a great location. Walking distance to lots of places in the historic district. As usual, hampton has their free morning breakfast. They do offer great military rates! They do have a parking fee which is annoying. I believe the rooms have been recently renovated.

    Had my car towed during a meeting in Savannah which is common given the city's need for revenue and the more police force then residents in the city. Taxis could not get me to the tow yard in time. Hampton inn had a shuttle for the airport but refused to take me 1mile to get my car. Had to go the next morning by taxi and miss an important business meeting. This is an example of trying hard not to go the extra mile for a long time traveler and dedicated hilton property stayer. I will remember this one Hampton inn and savannah. This would never happen in the better city I reside in - charleston sc.

    very good location - really. a lot of places boast this, but they really aren't. this is just on the other side of the river street shops, right on Bay street, at the top of the historic district, top of the park system, and next door to "Olde Pink House" and "b. Matthews eatery." What does that mean? I can walk a nice little circle from my hotel to all the hot spots - yes I am OCD. The hotel is however, at the complete opposite of Forsyth park, but you have something like 20 other parks to visit along that walk to Forsyth park. Only you are much closer to the "other" things to do in the district: museums, river street, city market, food, and right on the trolley stop. For young people, the walking distance is easy, maybe 15 to 20 min walk from hotel to Forsyth park. For 50+ people, it's harder depending on your knees and back. The bike cabs cost about $10-15 one way, trolley costs around $20-30/day, carriages aren't taxis, and the taxi's aren't around the historic district too much. Bike rental in the area is pathetic - I think there is one decent company, but it's 1/3 of the way to Forsyth and they charge something like $30 for a day rental. Really, if you're not walking, what are you going to do in Savannah? A house museum can only take up so much of your day!

    Food - they offer a daily breakfast included in your hotel room cost. Pretty good layout and options. I had to bring some of my own food b/c I can't do milk/cheese/yogurt. But that's where their microwaves come in handy (in room and at breakfast area). Each day has different egg and meat options. The weekend has the "good stuff" like bacon AND sausage, choice bread like donuts, and better fruit like strawberries and blueberries. There is always waffle, yogurt, oatmeal, bagels, muffins, hard boiled egg, 2 egg options (scramble plain, scramble with cheese, cheese omelet, western omelet) and 1 meat option (sausage patty, sausage link, bacon).
    Another reviewer mentioned something about cookies in the afternoon, I was there 5 nights and never saw cookies. However, I did see constant coffee, tea, and 2 fruits laid out in the lobby.
    No grocery store IN the area. A few convenience stores for some basics. (We had a rental car one day and used it to go to a Kroger about 4 miles away.)

    service - very friendly and helpful. From the front desk to the cleaning crew to the valet to the breakfast ladies to some worker coming in to work for the day, noticed me running in the exercise room and brought me water from the front desk!

    Appliances - each room has a mini fridge and a microwave. ours worked. Mini fridge fit in: waffles, fake cheese, one box of leftovers, 2 water bottles, 2 cokes, and 2 'ziplock' small round containers. Kept everything cool enough to not go bad, but not enough to make ice. A/c worked but loud. Mini fridge was also loud.

    Cleanliness - room and serving areas were clean. Nothing felt gross. No problems with shower, sink, nor toilet

    Pillows - The pillows are the softest things ever! Three piled high = maybe 2 inches under my little head (I wear children's sunglasses)! It was so bad, I actually had to go to Bed, Bath and Beyond to buy a pillow to relieve my neck and back pains. (I'm 30ish years old, but a "tricky" back, undiagnosed.)

    Bed - The bed is standard - I think it may have played a part in my back issues, but once I bought the extra firm pillow, it wasn't as bad (still hurt though) - I could knock it out with Aleve.

    Noises - We wanted a river view, so we got a little 34 x 24 sized window, which allowed in more sounds than views. While the river is cool, Bay street is more of a river for semi's driving to the highway. Due to the shipping docks nearby, there is CONSTANT semi truck activity along E. Bay Street. The people noise isn't really there, but there is no way to get away from the truck noise.
    Also, our mini fridge made some loud "rain" leaky noise when it kicked on, which was all throughout the night. B/c it would turn off then on, it could never become "white noise" - I used ear plugs until I figured out the fan from the air conditioner was SO LOUD it could drown out the mini fridge AND semi trucks and be left on all night to become the "white noise" I needed. (Once asleep, I am not usually a light sleeper, but I do require complete quiet to fall asleep.) Basically, light sleepers beware. I thought about changing to the city view, but once at the elevator, you know it's pointless there too - all that early morning activity of the city trucks can be heard. If you can handle white noise, just turn on the a/c or heating unit and put the fan to "low" for it to drown out the other stuff - it worked for me.

    Parking - they have a garage and charge $20 a day. There is another garage across the street - it always says "full" but we saw other cars still getting tickets to get in?

    I think most ppl would give this a 4 stars, but my back wants to give only 2 stars (+ 1 star b/c of my bought pillow.)

    Great location.  Be careful though as there is this one and then a Hampton Inn (& SUITES) Historic District also.  That one is further out, but how do you have 2 hotels with the same name???
    Anyhow, clean & great walking distance to things.

    Perfect location (say goodbye to your car until you are ready to drive back home - it's very central). The staff was very friendly (front desk even had a welcome gift for being newlyweds). The room was clean spacious and seems like the hotel was recently renovated. Breakfast was good, and I would recommend getting a room with "historic view" - we had a nice view to the river.

    Would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Savannah.

    My husband and I stayed at the Hampton from 4/7/15 - 4/10/15. I was unfamiliar with the Hampton. I was very impressed with their hot breakfast. I really appreciate any hotel that is willing to provide me eggs (or some source of protein) for breakfast. My husband had to explain to me that their hot breakfast is standard for most all Hamptons.  I think. Going forward when picking a hotel at the mid level price range Hampton may be my first choice for their hot breakfast.

    The other nice features of the hotel include a roof top deck with outstanding views and a pool. Each floor has vending machines. The hotel also provides you with coffee, fruit and cookies (although I always somehow seemed to miss the cookies when they were put out at and/or around 4:30, only saw the crumbs) each day.

    The location is also ideal if you planning on spending most of your time in Savannah, GA walking.

    I didn't love the fact that they charge you $20 a day to park your car (seems high). However at least we knew our car was safe.

    My only complaint is the rooms are clean to what I would consider a fair standard (e.g. our head board had streak marks on it). I also think the maid went through one of the snacks that I had left out.

    I would stay here again even with these complaints. I have a feeling if I had made more of stink about the maid, the Hampton would have taken care of it.
