WHY BRIDES LOVE THE DESOTO
Spanish moss and Southern history. Cobblestone streets and city squares. As one of America’s oldest cities, Savannah sparkles with old-world romance.
Our custom wedding day menus are all about modern Southern flavors. Georgia-grown ingredients play a starring role in our menus.
For more than a century, The DeSoto has reigned as “Savannah’s hotel” – the gracious epicenter of the city’s social life, where hospitality anchors every interaction.
The DeSoto was hands down the best venue in town. They were very accommodating through COVID, professional, friendly, and took the stress of the wedding off my hands by being all-inclusive with the services provided. We chose the Haborview Ballroom on the 15th floor, and the views were breathtaking! The drinks were amazing…and the food was drool-worthy. All of my guests said this was the best wedding they’ve ever attended and I couldn’t agree more!

“Ceremony and Reception”
We had our ceremony and reception at The DeSoto. We had a beautiful ceremony in the Pulaski Room, bringing the outdoors in with the curtains open. The cocktail hour was on the front patio. It was beautiful. Our reception was in the Madison Ballroom with a gorgeous set up for our families to gather and dance the night away.

We had everything at The DeSoto. Our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception! They were amazing through the entire process, treated us and all our guests amazing and went above and beyond for us. So glad we chose The DeSoto as our wedding venue. The staff was fabulous and Ann Mashburn was THE BEST to work with. The food is AMAZING and our wedding was perfect thanks to them!!

We had both our rehearsal dinner and the 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.
