Historic Riverfront Savannah Hotel Announces Remodeling Efforts

Guest Rooms Get a New Look at Savannah Marriott Riverfront

SAVANNAH, GA--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2011) - When you're surrounded by history, it's hard to make a change, but the Savannah Marriott Riverfront has found a way to refresh its look without erasing its past. This past summer, the Marriott, among hotels on River Street Savannah, began a $3.5 million renovation, and while the project won't be complete until the end of 2011, guests are already weighing in. "Our guests are thrilled with the updates," Jody McIntyre, Director of Sales and Marketing, says. "We hear positive comments every day."

As part of the renovation, all guest rooms are being remodeled and taking on a new color palette of cool, mint green and rich, chocolate brown. What won't change are the room's breathtaking river views, comfortable beds, high-speed Internet access and convenient touches, including a coffeemaker and iron. Those looking for more space can stretch out in a junior or executive suite, or enjoy even more of our notable service with a concierge-level room, which includes lounge access. We also offer hospitality suites, perfect for a Savannah government meeting space or retreat.

Set along the Historic riverfront, our hotel offers convenience to top attractions, including shopping and antiques, scenic squares, art galleries and museums set in historic homes. Closer to home, you'll find a fitness center, two pools (one indoor), a whirlpool and our Magnolia Spa in Savannah, GA. Relieve stress with the Magnolia Signature massage, using a blend of vanilla, blood orange, sandalwood and golden amber oils in combination with heated herbal packs and acupressure to relieve muscle tension. If you've spent too much time in the sun, the L'athene Microderm facial treats sun damage and aging, removing dead skin cells with professional-grade crystals. The Golden Body Ritual is fit for royalty, and starts with an exfoliation, followed by a buttery, warm moisturizing cocoon coupled with a scalp and foot massage. Lastly, skin is massaged with gold-flecked body oil and then dusted with luminous golden powder.

The beautiful Marriott Riverfront offers the perfect setting for weddings or military banquet space in Savannah, with 36,000 sq ft of event space; our largest ballroom can seat up to 1,600. Our 24 meeting rooms are equipped with high-speed Internet, and our catering team can create the perfect menu for your group.
