Be prepared for moderate walking as you experience program venues and restaurants throughout Savannah's Landmark Historic District.  Please click on the link at the bottom of this page for specific program details and dates and to register for upcoming programs on the main Road Scholar/Elderhostel website.

Standing fifteen stories tall and centrally located in the heart of the Historic District, The DeSoto is a full-service hotel that is beautifully decorated and very conveniently located just a few blocks off I-16. Serving as our Historic Savannah program's "home base of operations", The DeSoto is an unmatched setting filled with 21st century comforts and the light and warmth of southern hospitality. Rooms are furnished with either a king-size or two double-size beds. Some amenities include an outdoor pool, exercise room, full-service restaurant, bar, and lounge, and an ATM (automated teller machine), just to name a few.
