Several hotels have popped up in Savannah over the past couple of years, but the one that has enjoyed the most buzz is the Andaz Savannah (formerly known as AVIA Savannah). Located on Ellis Square in the Historic District, the Andaz offers guests amenities such as lush beds with Italian-cotton coverlets, modern bathrooms with walk-in showers, in-room refreshment bars with Dean & DeLuca snacks and 42" flat panel TVs.
In addition to its 151 guestrooms and suites, the Andaz features a 24-hour fitness center, swimming pool and cozy terrace with a fire pit. The hotel’s well-regarded eatery, 22 Square Restaurant, serves Low Country breakfasts and Southern-inspired small plate dinners, while the 22 Square Bar has a great selection of limited production wines, craft beer, and classic and contemporary cocktails.
One of the Andaz' best perks, however, is its location. The hotel occupies a prime spot on Ellis Square–a recently restored park with green space, benches and an interactive splash fountain for kids. Just steps away from Savannah’s famed City Market and a short walk to River Street, the Andaz gives guests easy access to restaurants, shops, bars and historic attractions.
The Andaz is part of the Hyatt family of hotels, so guests who are members of the Hyatt Gold Passport loyalty program can enjoy the same benefits at the Andaz as they do at other Hyatt hotels.
