The Oldest Hotel on River Street is Now the Newest Hotel on River Street

Welcome Back To River Street Inn

From its original setting on E. Bay Street in the downtown area of Savannah, GA, the award-winning River Street Inn captures the city’s history, charm and character like few other hotels. Located in a beautifully restored, 200-year-old cotton warehouse in the downtown Historic District overlooking the beautiful Savannah River and Historic River Street, our hotel seamlessly blends warmth and intimacy with the modern comfort and the 4-Star services and amenities of a contemporary boutique hotel.


The ambiance of our accommodations is wonderfully reminiscent of our heritage, beginning with the industrial-style architecture that incorporates exposed brick walls, authentic fireplaces, original heart pine floors, and floor to ceiling windows in select rooms. Guests stepping into our hotel are greeted by a magnificent, five-story atrium highlighted by a grand staircase and period furnishings. Large windows and wrought iron French balconies offer breathtaking views of the ships passing on the Savannah River. 


Upstairs on our third, fourth, and fifth floors, 99 guest rooms feature a classic yet sophisticated décor, high-speed Wi-Fi and special touches like four-poster beds.
