Hyatt Regency Savannah
One of the largest hotels along Savannah’s river, this seven-story property has a cavernous atrium lobby, granite floors, and glass elevators. But the best part of the Hyatt Regency is its ridiculously good views of the Savannah River and its water traffic, with boats that pass silently out to sea toward the Talmadge Bridge. The rooms have Hyatt’s signature beds and some have balconies, but one big attraction is the indoor heated pool. And the location is unbeatable: you can step out of the hotel and right onto River Street, with its restaurants, bars, boutiques, and gift shops.
