The Perry Lane Hotel is located in Downtown Savannah and part of Marriott’s Luxury Collection. The 157 room property is a Marriott Category 6 property with free night awards starting at 50,000 points per night. The property is one of the newest in Savannah as it recently opened last summer.

Rates for a weekend in early September were just under $300, so I decided to book through American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts which included the following benefits, in addition to early regular Marriott Bonvoy points:

  • Noon check-in, when available
  • Room upgrade upon arrival, when available (usually suite upgrades)
  • Daily breakfast for two people
  • Guaranteed 4pm late check-out
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • $100 property credit

Located on Perry Ln. the property is composed of two separate buildings one on each side of the street. To the left you’ll find the main building with guest registration, the Emporium Kitchen restaurant, and the Peregrin rooftop bar and pool.

Guest reception at The Perry Lane is more formal, where there is a desk that you sit down at upon registering. A butler is on premise who offers an arrival glass of sparkling wine.

Another amenity the hotel offers is bikes for guests to use.

Bottom Line

The hotel does charge at $32 nightly amenity fee, which includes sparkling wine at check-in, coffee service in the lobby, two Frozé cocktails at Peregrin per stay, cookies in the guest room, bike rentals, and a car service within 2 miles of the hotel.

The car service was a great amenity the hotel offers and the hotel does have two cars available, however most days it seemed that only one was running, so you’d have to wait 15-20 minutes for a ride.

Overall, the hotel was a great option for Savannah. Having just opened last year, the guest rooms are some of the nicest you’ll find in Savannah and the public spaces and pool are great.

However, one area which could be improved is the service. Overall it appeared that the hotel was understaffed. For instance arriving around 11pm, there was just one front desk agent working. The hotel doesn’t have any phone operators so all calls are routed to the front desk meaning phones would go unanswered when calling for any requests.

Additionally, the rooftop bar is one of Savannah’s hot spots on the weekends, however the elevators needed to take up there are the same as the guest elevators, so well guest room floors are key card accessed, expect for a rowdy crowd Friday and Saturday night.
