Thompson Savannah — Thompson Hotels’ first property in Georgia, and one of the first hip boutiques in the city — is now open for guests.
Set along the banks of the Savannah River, Thompson Savannah, located at the junction of the Historic District and its newest neighborhood, Eastern Wharf, offers thoughtful design that combines historic architectural details and contemporary flair. The hotel also honors Savannah’s vibrant history and celebrates the local community, according to parent company Hyatt.
Once guests enter the hotel lobby, they’re greeted by a grand staircase that leads to a sprawling, second-floor pool deck outfitted with daybeds and private cabanas.
Guests can expect 193 guestrooms, including 21 suites, at the hip, boutique hotel. The guestroom tower was designed by the architectural team at Smallwood to be perpendicular to the river, allowing all rooms to have sweeping, west-facing views of the cityscape or expansive, and sun-drenched east-facing views of the Savannah River, the coastal islands and the Atlantic Ocean.
Studio 11 Design captures the Southern landscape indoors through botanical accents, rich jewel tones, and custom stone tile patterns inspired by the city’s surrounding flora and green spaces.
Each room has modern comforts, including spacious walk-in showers, residential-style vanities, in-room mini bars, oversized custom art pieces from emerging local artists curated by Studio 11 Design’s art, curation, and styling vertical, Lou Verne, as well as custom bath amenities from D.S. & Durga, a popular NYC-based fragrance company.
Food and beverage is helmed by Southern, executive chef Robert Newton, including Fleeting, the signature restaurant as well as the Mediterranean influenced rooftop Bar Julian and Sunroom, the poolside lounge. Newton will also spearhead the hotel’s in-room dining menu.
Thompson Savannah has 10,000 square feet of event space as well as a riverside vent lawn and waterfront access.
The pet-friendly hotel offers free wifi, a fitness center and easy walking distance to popular attractions.
