Savannah Marriott Riverfront Completes $20 Million Transformation

August 24, 2018

Savannah, Georgia, Aug. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Savannah Marriott Riverfront unveils the completion of its recent $20 million renovation, featuring an all-new redesign of the hotel, including modern upgrades and conveniences to all its guestrooms. Its unbeatable location along the city’s historic downtown riverfront, combined with the recent transformation has travelers and locals alike flocking to this iconic Georgia hotel.

The hotel’s renovation includes its guestrooms, meeting and event space and public spaces. The Atrium Great Room Restaurant and Bar offers floor-to-ceiling windows and a modern lounge space. The hotel’s creative meeting spaces and lower lobby have also been upgraded.

“The ideas behind the redesign were very much based on the characteristics of Savannah and Southern charm, mixed with hospitality, to create a new sense of arrival and a keen sense of the Southern culture,” said Jody McIntyre, Director of Sales and Marketing for the hotel. “Marriott hotels are all about the hotel experiences consumers want, no matter what generation you’re from, so we’re thrilled to be introducing spaces that work for the locals as much as it does for those visiting the city, both millennials and non-millennials.”

The new, contemporary redesigned guestrooms boast a modern palette and customfurnishings designed for the way today’s travelers work and unwind. Every room features signature bedding, large bathrooms and USB plug points next to the nightstand outlets. Guests can recharge at Magnolia Spa or work out in the 24-hour fitness center. Guests can also take in riverfront views of ships sailing in and out of port while indulging at Blue, a Savannah Bistro.

To unveil the new look, the Savannah hotel hosted a Summer Reveal Party and Open House that included seasonal bites, summer cocktails, live jazz and special giveaways.
