Welcome to The DeSoto

As much a part of Savannah as city squares and Spanish moss, The DeSoto blends the elegance, history, and charm of one of America’s oldest cities with a playful dose of Southern spirit. Step inside our downtown Savannah hotel for foie gras and fried green tomatoes, or meet us on the back porch for a “Sip & Stroll” walking tour.

    This is a perfect location within walking distance to shops, restaurants, pubs, and the river! We enjoyed the bar at the hotel and the "personal" touch of each employee. This hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and the environment is so unique. We can't wait to visit this hotel again!

    We enjoyed our stay - the staff was very helpful. The accommodations were heavenly. The hotel is in the heart of the historic district - lots of great walking and nearby restaurants. The hotel is very close to John the Baptist Church that was on our list of places to see.
