The Knot

I just wanted to say thank you for everything! Your team is the best! Everything was perfect! Everyone has raved about the food and service. By far the best hotel in Savannah!

- Molly, Bride

We had both our rehearsal dinner and reception at The DeSoto. Our ceremony was at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, and we had a large number of out-of-town guests. We received a ton of comments from guests about how much they enjoyed the convenience of having everything so close.

- Shannon, Bride

I had my reception at The DeSoto, and it was wonderful! The cocktail hour was downstairs in the Pulaski Room, which has floor to ceiling windows and an outdoor patio. My guests could choose to sit inside and mingle or outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and take in the sights! Our reception was upstairs in the 15th floor Harborview Room, which has a panoramic view of Downtown Savannah. It was simply amazing, and my guests couldn't stop talking about the view!
