Let’s Get Savannah Ready!
How to Pack
Savannah is a southern city blessed with warm comfortable temperatures most of the year and has an average temperature of 77F (25C). While we occasionally experience a cold snap or two, we suggest packing clothes on the lighter, breathable, and comfortable side. When heading out for evening entertainment, feel free to dress to the nines or keep it casual. Casual dress is welcomed at most of our fine dining restaurants. As they want to be remembered for their fantastic food not their dress code!
Most importantly, remember these two things: One, don’t forget your walking shoes and two, double check the forecast.
Get ready for some hot summer nights (possibly in more ways than one) with highs ranging from 85F to 90F (29C to 33C). Lighter, airier clothes are a must. Be sure to bring your bathing suit so you can enjoy our rooftop pools or Savannah’s Beach. During July and August, we get some afternoon showers that never last very long but might catch off guard while you’re exploring. Remember to stay safe while you enjoy the sun by using sunscreen and drinking water.

How to Explore
Downtown Savannah is truly a walker’s paradise. Strike out in any direction from our hotels and you’ll find yourself in one of our beautiful squares or walking along River Street. If you’d like a bit of direction in your exploring, our on-site concierges have maps and suggestions at the ready.
Just remember to bring your most comfortable walking shoes. We have mostly flat terrain, but we do have brick sidewalks and cobblestone streets that can be a bit tricky for those of you walking in high heels.
Looking for a free ride around downtown or on the Savannah River, then check out The Dot. The Dot Express Shuttle serves 24 stops around the Historic District for you to hop on when you need a break from walking. The Savannah Belles Ferry will shuttle you across the Savannah River from City Hall to the Trade Center, back across to the Waving Girl and, back again. You can find out more about The Dot’s schedules and guidelines at http://www.connectonthedot.com/
In case you need a break from all that walking, you can always call a Pedi-Cab. These eco-friendly riders are stationed throughout the downtown area ready to peddle you to your next destination. If you don’t see one nearby, you or our on-site concierges can always call one to pick you up! Check out Savannah Pedicab or Royal Bike Taxi for more info.
CAT Bike is the fastest and most convenient way to get around town. Whether you want to enjoy Savannah’s historic charm or run a quick errand between meetings, CAT Bike can get you there. Avoid traffic and always get the best parking spot with CAT Bike! As always there’s an app for that. Check out catbike.bcycle.com for pricing and more.
