This Historic Hotels of America Inn is, as the name suggests, right on the Savannah River and it is essential to have a room overlooking the river as the views are wonderful. Savannah is one of the busiest ports in the US and to watch the huge tankers drift by dwarfing the sternwheelers moored along the quayside is hypnotising. As many of the buildings along the river, the River Inn was originally a cotton warehouse built in 1817 from recycled ballast stone and the origins are still to be seen in the hotel.
Within the hotel, there are two restaurants, several shops and a fitness centre.
The 86 rooms are all very different. Some have hardwood floor, s and four poster beds, others have balconies, brick walls and carpets. Bedding varies as well with a combination of kings, queens and two queen beds.

Everything went to plan. The car was excellent, we had no problems with the ferry bookings or the hotel reservations and the information we received was all accurate. We appreciated the very convenient seats that were reserved for us on the flights. Overall, an excellent holiday experience, you did an excellent job in putting it all together for us and in responding to my many queries
