Downtown Savannah Hotel Joins in the Annual Festival of Lights in Savannah, Georgia

Lights, Animals, Action! The SpringHill Suites Savannah Downtown/Historic District Gets in on the Fun at the Festival of Lights

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwired - Dec 6, 2013) - The holiday spirit can incorporate many aspects, from helping others, to admiring seasonal lights, to celebrating with family and friends. Or, for places like the SpringHill Suites Savannah Downtown/Historic District, embracing the season can involve all of this and more. In conjunction with the city's Festival of Lights, these vibrant, new Savannah accommodations are offering a special promotion to travelers and, to staff members, the opportunity to spread the holiday cheer and volunteer.

Between November 29, 2013 and January 4, 2014, the Savannah Harbor Foundation Festival of Lights entertains visitors with more than 80 light displays, exotic animals, magic shows and an Entertainment Pavilion that showcases musical and dance performances.

Helping to make these attractions even more accessible to travelers is the SpringHill Suites Savannah Downtown, which is offering one of the most exuberant hotel deals in Savannah. Its Festival of Lights package enhances the excitement of the event by including a narrated holiday tour of Savannah's most exquisitely decorated neighborhood, entrance to the Festival of Lights, two trolley tickets for the Festival and complimentary valet parking. A hot Southern breakfast buffet is also included each morning to ensure that guests have the energy to keep them going, whether it's to visit the Festival's Holiday Village or simply admire the spectacular lights.

While there are fun and games aplenty at this annual event, attendees will also discover a heart and soul. The Festival raised $23,000 for numerous causes last year, and promises to continue the tradition this year with the World Ocean School and the Empty Stocking Fund joining the group of beneficiaries. Unique among hotels near Savannah, Georgia's Riverfront, the SpringHill Suites is also sending three managers to volunteer during the event.

"We had such a wonderful time volunteering at last year's event that we knew we would all want to participate again this year," explained Sales Coordinator Monica Haselden.

Whether guests arrive to enjoy the show, support the causes or simply experience the charm of the city, they will find the SpringHill Suites stands out among other Civic Center hotels in Savannah. Its close proximity to shopping, dining and entertainment, combined with its contemporary style and value-added amenities make it a top choice among travelers. And a memorable vacation just may be the best holiday present of all.

The Festival of Lights package is available through December 21, 2013, and guests may use the promotional code YX1 when making reservations to secure the promotion. Reservations may be made online or by calling 1-800-228-9290.
