256 East Perry Street, Savannah, Georgia, United States
"My fiancé and I stayed at Perry Lane. We were let down. The hotel itself is surprisingly basic — the reviews here and elsewhere (aided by clever social media and photography) left us with high expectations, but if you’re anticipating anything more than a city Marriott, dial them back. Apart from being really small (not even a desk area, no view), the room we were assigned (a purported “upgrade” through Skylark) was standard issue in every way. While this property grasps desperately at instagrammable trendiness, our overall impression was that it cuts corners wherever and whenever possible. The small touches Perry Lane pitches as “perks,” like the free glass of sparkling wine, are more than made up for by the considerable daily “resort” fee you’ll pay (I don't understand resort fees). Do the math yourself, but spoiler alert: even if you’re down to drink an obscene amount of bad wine, you’re not coming close to breaking even here. Another small example of the general cheapness: bathroom toiletries are full size and topped off between stays. Sanitation concerns aside, the way they do it is gross – in our shower, for example, the plastic bottles were visibly crinkled where the room’s previous occupants had squeezed them (I guess trying to get their money’s worth?), and, just so you don’t get any ideas, there are prominently displayed signs warning that you’ll be charged if you take them home. Note to prospective guests: “luxury” hotels do not do these things. A note on COVID precautions. And this is tough to write, because we are living in a unique time, and people have different comfort thresholds. We probably fall somewhere in the middle on the caution spectrum – on the one hand, we have traveled regularly during the pandemic and have stayed at hotels all over, but we also mask up, sanitize, distance, etc., and take these things seriously. If that describes you too, or if you are on the more skittish side, DO NOT STAY HERE. Full stop. Management will tell you, as they told us, that they comport with the letter of the law and local guidelines. I won’t say this is a lie. But (let me be charitable) it is a stretch. And they are certainly not going above and beyond what the law requires, which was frankly surprising for Marriott, a pretty risk-averse company. On the weekend we stayed, and as a second wave of COVID infections crested nationwide, the hotel hosted a large, mostly indoor wedding (indoor dance floor, indoor seating and cocktail areas, some outdoor patios) in their rooftop event space. I guess they intuited that this might rub some of their paying guests the wrong way, as there was a fair amount of secrecy around it – in fact, we later learned that vendors had been asked to sign NDAs preventing them from discussing or publicizing the event. (Not sure whether this was the hotel’s doing or the happy couple’s – I asked a manager, and he said he didn’t know.) There was no notice of the event given to other guests,"
"We carefully planned a weekend getaway. Mindful of COVID we were very particular about where we would stay. The Perry Lane Hotel - Savannah exceeded our expectations. Cleanliness and COVID precautions were consistent and excellent. Room was amazing - new decor, spacious and comfortable. Best bed - such a great sleep. Venue offers relaxation at the Rooftop pool and several excellent dining options. Emporium - best grits and pimento cheese omelet, Peregrin - tacos were delicious and what a view from the rooftop, Wayward - Libations prepared by Nick were great. Bakery on premise offers even more opportunity to indulge. We ordered our Thanksgiving pies. Staff was exceedingly courteous and attentive. Every meal and beverage delicious. Hats off to the management team Dhruv Khanna and staff Jewel, William, Nick and so many others. We were at a Ritz Carlton the week before and this was so much better. We will return. Ohhhh - Savannah was a great town to visit too!"
"The Perry Lane Hotel is true luxury in Savannah. First visit to Savannah and first stay at Perry Lane. Beautiful property and excellent service. Rooftop Peregrin bar had wonderful views and good cocktails. The Wayward bar was wonderful. Shout out to Nik and Jason - they know their cocktails. Also fun with mini arcade inside. Room very comfortable and well appointed - big bathroom. As Platinum member took breakfast option - well worth it. Tastey food at The Emporium. Will recommend this property and will visit again!"
