Category: Hospitality & Tourism

Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

August 2, 2018 - Marriott’s premier riverfront hotel, Savannah Marriott Riverfront, recently announced the completion of their full renovation, including guestrooms, Atrium, meeting and event space, and more. Adjacent to highly-acclaimed River Street, Savannah Marriott Riverfront is conveniently located in downtown Savannah, overlooking the historic riverfront. Owned and operated by Columbia Sussex Corporation, the hotel boasts more than 387 revamped guest rooms and common spaces that make guests feel like a genuine part of the neighborhood, the stunning Atrium Great Room Restaurant and Bar with floor-to-ceiling windows and modern lounge space, creative meeting spaces, a sensible lower lobby, and more.


“The ideas behind the redesign were very much based on the characteristics of Savannah and Southern charm, mixed with hospitality and lure, 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.”

Keeping in mind that this leading event destination is famous for its blend of history, artistry and Southern charm, events held at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront will be in the center of it all. 20 versatile rooms totaling 40,000 square feet are perfectly suited for meetings and events, whether it’s for a group of 10 or 1,600 participants. All meeting spaces are refreshed with new carpet, an infusion of art, modern neutral-colored furniture, and lighting. Upon arrival, guests step through the doors of the reimagined Savannah Marriott Riverfront Hotel and are greeted by a warm welcome and this uniquely Savannah essence, where there is something charmingly Southern and stylishly worldly to discover.

Thoughtfully designed for guests to stretch out and unwind, the new exquisitely-redesigned guestrooms evoke a modern palette and flexible furnishings designed for the way you like to work and stay. More than just a place to lay your head, every room features plush bedding, large bathrooms with premium bath products, and USB plug points next to the nightstand outlets.

Elsewhere at the hotel, guests can pamper themselves with a treatment at Magnolia Spa, or workout in the fully-equipped, 24-hour fitness center. The seasonal outdoor pool offers the perfect place to cool off in the warm Savannah sun. Guests can also enjoy riverfront views of ships sailing in and out of port from all over the world at Blue, A Savannah Bistro – a vibrant restaurant that offers a delectable, hearty breakfast buffet with eggs and omelettes cooked to order, or continental healthy start options such as fruit, yogurts, oatmeal, and more – or drop by the sleek Atrium Great Room Bar, where you can unwind with a cocktail and dinner after a busy day. 
“It’s incredibly exciting and energizing to see our Marriott with its new design! Our guests and clients are wowed when they enter the hotel and see all the changes,” said Michael Bailey, General Manager of the hotel. “We are beyond proud to showcase the new renovations and take our guests’ experience to the next level.”

To experience the new look, the hotel hosted a Summer Reveal Party and Open House this past Tuesday that included seasonal bites, summer cocktails, special giveaways, and more.
