  • " The DeSoto is a great hotel in a great location. Recently remodeled rooms with a great view of the Savannah skyline. Steps from amazing eateries and entertainment. The DeSoto has an A+ hotel bar, Sherrie is a top shelf bartender and makes this bar awesome. A perfect place to start, end or just stay in for the night. "
