The city, which is known for its architecture and historical buildings, is alive with art, theater, shopping, dining and entertainment options. Visitors can explore the Savannah Historic District, stroll through Forsyth Park, or spend the day in the City Market.


Guests at the chic studio homes will enjoy one- and two-bedroom suites with high ceilings, designer kitchens and bathrooms, wireless internet, concierge services and valet parking. While staying in Ellis Square, they can enjoy the pleasantly-warm southern nights from the rooftop lounge, which offers beautiful views of Savannah and features a fire pit and barbeque grill.
