JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District

Waterfront Wonder

What it is

A 374-room gem in a 1912 power plant, with an on-site spa and gym and a dozen (yes, a dozen) restaurants on the premises.

What it isn't

Far from the fun. In fact, you’ll mingle with plenty of locals at the rooftop Electric Moon Skytop Lounge, an open-air terrace with lawn games and live music into the wee hours.

What we think

Savannah is reported to have more ghosts, if you believe in such things, than any other city in America. So we love that this hotel combines a hint of the old with plenty of new, glamorous touches...you may sleep better. Book an atrium-view King room in the Historic Building for an exposed brick wall; 350-square-foot floor plan; and marble-lined bathroom. Or 800-square-foot Hospitality Suite, which has its own separate living space (also in the Historic Building, with exposed brick...and a prime river view). Of course, nobody comes to Savannah to hole up in their room, and the hotel has plenty of reasons to join the revelry. Our favorites? Stone & Webster Chophouse, where you can tuck into a 45-day-aged filet mignon and broiled oysters with lobster roe and paddlefish caviar; and the Myrtle & Rose rooftop garden, where the jazz brunch includes pimento deviled eggs and passion fruit cream puffs.

You're here because

You embrace fully high and low, and the hotel has a restaurant to scratch every itch. Here, that means the Savannah Tequila Company (just as fun as it sounds, with seemingly bottomless agave options) and an on-site Starbucks for your morning jolt.

The Moment

After a late late night, you only have one item on your must-do list. A plumping collagen mask and hydrafacial sure to take five years off your face.
