As my first hotel collaboration, the River Street Inn is near and dear to my heart. Savannah had always been on my radar of places to visit, so I decided to book a long-weekend getaway and explore the peach state (read more about spending a weekend in Savannah here!) This beautiful state is full of friendly faces, home cooked meals, and Southern charm. Additionally, if you enjoy a little comfort when you travel, this hotel offers the comforts of home with a magical, Southern twist.
Checking into the River Street Inn
Imagine every movie or TV show you’ve watched that’s filmed in a Southern state. Low hanging oak trees, cobblestone streets, and old, colonial houses strewn with American flags and flower baskets. Now imagine a small bridge surrounded by greenery. You cross that bridge, walk the cobblestones, and enter the lobby of the River Street Inn.
Upon arrival, you’ll immediately notice the Southern hospitality and friendly faces ready to greet you. The lobby area is filled with art, space, and a snack area to meet your evening cravings. The hotel is located in a 200-year-old, restored, cotton warehouse. It’s the ideal spot for first-time travelers to Savannah, as it’s conveniently located along the gorgeous Savannah River and River Street area.
I stayed in one of their city view rooms with two queen beds. Each room is beautifully decorated in a modern way, with large windows and comfy furnishings. (Across all rooms you’ll find hints of the hotel’s history as a cotton warehouse- so keep an eye out!
Inside your room you’ll find a wide range of goodies, from free water to coffee machines. The bathrooms are elegant and chic, with a selection of high-end Beekman products to use at your disposal (including shampoos, conditioners, and soaps).
Amenities at the Hotel
There is no shortage of Southern hospitality at this hotel. With a 24 hour reception area, the staff are always available to offer suggestions, help, or just a friendly chat! Upon arrival, help yourself to a complimentary coffee in the lobby, or an infused water to beat the heat.
If you’re in the mood to mingle and meet fellow travelers, there’s a guest’s reception Monday through Saturday from 5:00-6:30pm (if you’re traveling solo, this is a great option to learn about the area, recommendations, and make friends).
If you want a little down-time, why not use the on-site fitness center? Here you’ll find cardio equipment, weights, and a peloton. The center is available to all hotel guests- hours on the website.
Dining at the River Street Inn
Perfectly located within steps of the Historic District and on the famous River Street, you’ll find dining options for every palette in the area. For convenience, the River Street Inn has four must-try restaurant/cafes on property if you’re not in the mood to venture far. Huey’s Cafe (try the beignets here for breakfast) and Bernie’s Oyster House are on the first floor, Tubby’s Seafood is on the second, and Cafe M is on the fourth. If you want a little luxury, Vic’s on the River is located next door and has unbeatable views of the river and even better food!
