SAVANNAH, GA—Hilton Worldwide has opened the Embassy Suites Savannah Historic District, a 150-suite hotel constructed with the brand’s Design Option III model.

The design offers a variety of two-room suites and a contemporary atrium area, and decreases the amount of land needed as well as creates efficiencies for both construction and operational costs, according to the company.

The hotel also features all of the signature amenities standard at any Embassy Suites hotel, including free cooked-to-order breakfast each morning, a two-hour complimentary evening reception and two-room suites with a separate living area, private bedroom, two flat-screen high-definition televisions and wet bar fitted with a microwave, mini-fridge and a selection of gourmet coffee and teas from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

The hotel also has an outdoor pool and a 24-hour complimentary fitness center. For groups and meetings, the hotel offers over 5,600 sq. ft. of meeting space, complimentary Internet access in public areas and a 24-hour business center.

"We're delighted to expand our presence in Georgia and particularly in the heart of downtown Savannah,” said John Rogers, global head of Embassy Suites Hotels. “This is the second property in the area to feature the Embassy Suites brand’s Design Option III concept, which brings the unique Embassy Suites attributes to life in a way that is attractive to developers and contributes toward an enhanced guest experience." 

The hotel was constructed and developed by Bennett Hospitality, which owns and operates several hotels and restaurants in Charleston, South Carolina; Savannah, Georgia; Kalispell and Bozeman, Montana.

Christopher J. Crane serves as general manager. He most recently held the position of general manager Hilton Garden Inn in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
