Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


In the oldest city in Georgia, two centuries of history have been reinvented into the Cotton Sail Hotel. Formerly a cotton warehouse, this five-story hotel features exposed redbrick walls and a 200-year-old heart pine wood floor made from the building's original roof. The renovation earned the building a 2015 Historic Preservation Award from the Historic Savannah Foundation.

The preservation maintained the building's bones, so no two guest rooms are exactly alike. Some have 14-foot ceilings, while some have brick archways leading to Juliet balconies over River Street. Each room, however, is inviting, with warm earth tones offset by the rich hues of the aged floors. The rooftop bar is quite popular -- make sure you go there before all the seats are gone so you can enjoy the tapas-style food.

The heart of old Savannah beats just outside the doors of the hotel, where guests can find upscale restaurants and nightclubs. Ideal for couples, Savannah was called the "most romantic city in the South" by the Huffington Post. Exploration by foot is recommended as antique shops, museums and historic homes are a short distance from the hotel.

Excellent location right on the river.

Our room faced the river - great view. Enjoyed watching the large cargo ships go by. However, one trade off is the river / river street activity noise during the day. Nights were fine.

The Cotton Sail offers a nicely appointed room with a fantastic view of the river and the river walk. The location is perfect if you want to walk to restaurants, historic sites and shops.

Location, and the Travelzoo price. I would not have liked this hotel if paying full price.

We live in Savannah and wanted to stay locally for a special night out. I got a special rate on Travelocity's website. A bottle of wine was included. Upon checking in, the girl at the front desk walked with us to our room. She carried the wine and two glasses. We opened the balcony doors and watched boats go up and down the river. Everything about this place is great. Starbucks coffee in the room, big bathrooms, very large tv, nice view, wood floors, and a sofa that looks out at the river. I highly recommend staying here. Two concerns to keep in mind. Parking is an issue. We were lucky enough to find a meter. Also, the room has a drop off right after you enter. The room was dark and I didn't hear the girl say watch your step. I have a hearing problem. I missed the step and fell into the desk. It was my fault because there is a light and a sign that says Watch Your Step. It would have been helpful if the curtains had been left open. These are only minor issues. This place is great. I hi
