In 2007 this 400-room AAA Four Diamond-rated hotel ($199-229 d) underwent a $25 million makeover that included adding pillow-top beds with 250-thread-count linens, updated marble and tile bathrooms, high-tech amenities like plasma TVs, alarm clocks with MP3 players, and in-room video games. The hotel is across the street from the City Convention Center, which means the guests are more shirts-and-ties than fanny packs- and-flip-flops, but it’s still a solid option for leisure travelers.

Like other hotels in Uptown, the Marriott has also undergone a renovation, which was completed in 2009. The $10 million facelift brought the hotel up-to-date but didn’t put it over the top compared to the competition. Each of the 434 rooms ($199-229 d) and four suites has the to-be-expected in-room amenities; some of the rooms have decent views of Uptown. The hotel also has an indoor pool and a fitness center. Savannah Red, the hotel restaurant and wine bar, is a good option for upscale dining, and the hotel’s location can’t be beat, on one of the main streets in Uptown and walking distance from all of the major sights.
