The SUM of All Parts Meetings Experience

In today’s new world of social distancing and corporate sanitization guidelines, the ordinary meeting is a thing of the past. Here at The DeSoto Savannah, we believe meetings and events will play a critical role in the return of both the hospitality industry and our economy at large. To help lay the groundwork for our future – and to assist meeting planners in mitigating the increased risk inherent to our current situation – we have joined together with our sister properties in the Sotherly Hotels portfolio to deliver clear value and ROI in a new program we’re calling
The SUM of All Parts - Sotherly Understands Meetings.

Eliminating Risk

Attendance at your meeting is a moving target, perhaps more so now than ever before. As such, we understand that companies and planners alike will need our help in managing the risk associated with attrition and cancellations. Our solution to this is our “No Attrition, No Cancellation*” clause for all new contracts:


  • Schedule a new meeting in 2020 for arrival by June 30, 2021 and no attrition or cancellation fees will apply until 90 days in advance of arrival
  • This special provision applies to contracted room and food & beverage revenue

The Georgian Terrace

Built of brick and marble, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, the Georgian Terrace Hotel was designed in the Beaux Arts style as a Southern interpretation of the Parisian hotel. Striking architectural details, crystal chandeliers, and a whisper-soft color palette create an atmosphere of timeless elegance in our Grand Ballroom, host to many notable gatherings in Atlanta’s storied history. Outdoor venues include our rooftop Pool Deck and the Terrace at Livingstons, the hotel’s Southern-inspired locally sourced restaurant. Or for a fun evening, Edgar’s P&P, better known as the "Community Drinkery" offers those with a soft spot for barrel-aged cocktails and boldly imagined bar bites a venue unlike any other in Midtown Atlanta.
