Top Hotels in Savannah

Savannah is home to quaint historic inns, large luxury hotels, and everything in between. This year’s top-voted properties were praised by T+L readers for their great locations (within walking distance of many of the city’s famous sights), beautiful design, upscale amenities (rooftop bars were a favorite), and fantastic service. In fact, rooftop bar Peregrin, at Perry Lane Hotel (No. 2), was a favorite among our readers, who also said the property overall was “stylish, service-oriented, and charming across the board.” Mansion on Forsyth Park, ranked third, was commended for its “perfect location” right on the popular park, and our No. 1 hotel combined the best of both worlds as readers loved the on-site bars and its location by the river.

Here are the best hotels in Savannah, according to Travel + Leisure readers — starting with this year’s top property, the Alida.

The Alida, a 173-room property in the Plant Riverside District, was voted the top hotel in Savannah by T+L readers this year. While the charming Southern city has plenty to offer visitors, this hotel is a destination in itself, with a whiskey bar; a saltwater pool with fire pits, cabanas, and a pool bar serving up frosé and munchies; and a signature brunch served every day at Rhett. T+L readers noted the hotel’s “incredible location,” which is just steps from the Savannah River and a short distance from some of the city’s best restaurants, breweries, and distilleries. And more than one reader complimented the Lost Square, the hotel’s rooftop bar, which serves up casual bites and delightful cocktails with panoramic views of the quaint downtown and the river.
