I can’t write about Savannah without mentioning the best place to stay in Savannah – The Grant Hotel. It may not be haunted, like some of Savannah’s other hotel options, but not everyone wants to share their slumber with a spirit.
If you like comfort, modern furnishings, high ceilings and great locations then you’ll love The Grant. Here’s everything you need to know about my favourite hotel in Savannah.
The Grant Hotel – The Best Hotel in Savannah, Georgia
About the Grant
The Grant Hotel in Savannah is more of a high-tech Aparthotel. It’s situated in an old department store and has lots of old world charm while still being modern and chic.
Think high ceilings, exposed brick and clean, yet cosy design features. It’s basically the perfect base to make you feel like a local in the Hostess City (that’s Savannah in case you didn’t know)!
Checking in at The Grant
There are no queues for check in as you’re notified via the Hospitality app (or via email) of the code for the doors. The main door is right next to the Flying Monk Noodle Bar, which is almost dangerously tempting.
The keypad on the front door is easy to use. The one on the door to your apartment is a bit more high tech but still user-friendly.
It took us a minute to figure out where out room was because there were no signs, but we sort of guessed room 204 would be on the second floor.
The Hospitality app is so handy you can use it to control the lights, temperature and more within the apartment. It also recommends things to see and places to eat nearby etc.

The Grant Location
The Grant has a fantastic location, right in the centre of town on West Broughton Street. It’s only a short 5 minute walk to the Historic District of Savannah and a 15 minute walk to River Street.
There’s a noodle shop right next door and plenty of great places to eat/drink nearby. You can read more about the best places to eat in Savannah here, including Leopold’s famous ice cream parlour which is just down the street from the Grant Hotel.
Inside The Grant
We were in room 204 – a two bedroom apartment. It was absolutely glorious. There was a huge open plan kitchen and living room area with lots of light and large flat-screen TV.
There was a master bedroom and a second bedroom. Both had their own TVs, ceiling fans and ensuite bathrooms. The bathroom in the master bedroom also had washing and drying facilities which was super handy.
The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you could ever need, including a bottle opener on the side of the counter, a huge fridge with an ice machine (which you’ll need A LOT of in that Savannah heat!) and all the cutlery/crockery you could dream of.
Having a self-catering apartment is incredibly handy. For example, when we couldn’t finish our giant ice creams from Leopold’s we stored them in the freezer. Also, if you’re on a budget or have a restricted diet self-catering is THE DREAM!
Honestly, The Grant Hotel felt like a home away from home. I never wanted to leave. If I could just move to Savannah and live in the Grant I would be delighted with my life.
10/10 could not recommend it enough for anyone visiting Savannah. By far the best place to stay in Savannah Georgia.
