Rooms & 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 red brick 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, 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 so some nights can get loud. Opt for a room on the bottom floor to minimize noise from the bar.

The heart of old Savannah beats 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 Huffington Post. Exploration by foot is recommended as antique shops, museums and historic homes are a short distance from the hotel.

Enjoyed Most: We loved the room and it is a wonderful location.
Other Comments: There is a nice rooftop bar we enjoyed with views of the riverfront. We watched the ships along the Savannah River and a beautiful sunset.

Enjoyed Most: Location
Other Comments: There was no mention that the hotel only offers valet parking at $25 per day, or you have the choice of parking on the street and feeding the meters, or garage parking over two blocks away. Also, they have no where to load and unload car in bad weather, so if it is raining, everything gets soaked. However, it is in a good location.

Enjoyed Most: Everything.
Other Comments: Entire staff was very attentive and helpful. Conversion from an old building was extremely well done. Super location. However, only one chair (desk type) in room. A second chair, such as an easy chair, would have been nice.

Enjoyed Most: View of the river.
Other Comments: Had to ask for Travelzoo's specials, wine, and was grudgingly given an hour late check out because spouse still in meetings. Upstairs guests made stay the worse possible. Actually glad to leave. Hardwood floors with children are not good choice! Maybe a lower level would be best for children.

Enjoyed Most: We had a riverfront room that was very nice. The room was clean and attractive. The paper products and soaps were cheap. I would expect more.
Other Comments: I did not like the fact that the elevators are shared with the Riverfront public going up to the top deck bar. We waited a long time to get to our room only one floor away. It also felt a bit unsafe. The top deck bar was fun and the view was good, however, it was a very young crowd.

Enjoyed Most: The location, the staff and the upstairs bar with a great view.
Other Comments: The pillows and bed were not comfortable. They need to upgrade. The bathroom was very well designed.
Barbara Feb 28, 2016 Clarkesville, GA, United States
Enjoyed Most: Awesome hardwood floors and swanky bathroom
Other Comments: The fact that our room was located directly under the lobby made for an unpleasant early wake up call.
Patrick Feb 28, 2016 Athens, GA, United States
Enjoyed Most: Beds, courteous desk staff
joseph Feb 28, 2016 GAINESVILLE, GA, United States
