Savannah Marriott Hotel
Courtyard by Marriott Savannah GA
Review of a Savannah Marriott hotel, the Courtyard by Marriott Savannah GA. Other Marriott Savannah hotels include the Marriott Savannah Riverfront, Marriott Execustay & the Residence Inn by Marriott Savannah.
Our most recent botanical journey was to drive about 6 hours north of our Florida home up to Savannah, Georgia. I had decided to build a rose gardening hub into the site and I needed pictures.
I nosed around online and found out that the SACGC rose garden was in full flush.
I rousted Tiny out of his peaceful slumber and told him to pack.
Not being one to plan ahead, I chose this hotel in Savannah the same way I choose any hotel. By location and looks.
We had stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn downtown on our last visit. Since I need to review several hotels in Savannah, I decided to try a different area.
The Courtyard by Marriott Savannah is located at 6703 Abercorn Street in midtown Savannah. This is a less congested area than downtown and self-parking is free in the hotel's lot.
It looked o.k. from the outside. Clean, neat, nicely landscaped and in a safe neighborhood. Check, check, check.
I went in. The lobby was nicely laid out. Check. This place was ticking all my boxes.
Now, if they will only give me a reasonable room rate.
At $119 per night for a king, I felt the Savannah Marriott rate was good. But then I asked if they give a AAA discount.
They do. Showing my AAA card brought the room rate down to $84!
I was liking this Savannah Georgia hotel better all the time.
The clerk put us in room 218 on the second floor and told us where to park so as to be closest to the elevator.
I could hardly believe it when we entered the room.
Not only was it impeccably clean (you expect that) but it is laid out much like a certain 5 star resort we stayed at on a trip to Maui.
The bed, in particular, is remarkably similar to the bed at the Maui Hyatt on Kaanapali beach. But the similarity doesn't end there. The carpet, the floor plan, even the granite vanity area which is separate from the bath is reminiscent of those at the Hyatt Regency.
For $84! (The Hyatt ran us close to $450 all told.)
I spent the rest of my stay there enjoying the feeling that you get whenever you find a great bargain.
The furniture at the Savannah Marriott is comfy and the room is conveniently arranged. The bathroom is bigger than most hotel baths.
One thing I feel I should mention is that the coffee machine is stationed on the vanity outside the bath. A lot of hotels put it inside the bathroom.
I wish they wouldn't.
There is no hand lotion or shower cap included in the toiletries so bring these with you.
One of my favorite features of this room are the sliding glass doors leading to the balcony. It is dressed in heavy drapes and sheers. These make it easy to control the amount of natural light that enters the space.
Open them and the room is flooded with brightness. Close them and you've got all the privacy you could wish for.
This room overlooks the pool area and gazebo.
Tiny and I found that the Savannah Marriott exceeded our expectations.
