Savannah's finest accommodations tend to be clustered in the Historic District. Dozens of inns and bed-and-breakfasts have sprung up as private mansions have been converted into accommodations with an emphasis on elegance and romance. There are many to choose from that capture the essence of the city and its history and charm.
Though less-expensive motels can be found along Abercorn Street on the Southside, we think it's worth paying extra to stay in the Historic District. It's what makes Savannah special, and it's where the majority of the sights, restaurants and nightspots are located.
Getting a hotel room has become increasingly difficult in Savannah (with prices rising in turn) as the city has become more popular among tourists and business travelers. If you plan to stay in a historic inn or one of the major hotels downtown, plan to make your reservations several months in advance. Rooms are particularly scarce around St. Patrick's Day: Savannah has the second-largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in the U.S., and hundreds of thousands of revelers pack the city, filling hotels across the county. Book a room at least six months in advance if you plan to be among them. Because of the mild climate, hotels and inns stay booked most of the year.
