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. Please visit the The DeSoto website for more details, directions and photos. In addition, www.mapquest.com is an excellent resource for driving directions.
There is no free transportation available from the airport. Cab fare from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport is approximately $35.00 each way for one person with a $5.00 charge for each extra rider. Please note: due to increasing fuel prices, cab fares may fluctuate and cannot be guaranteed; call ahead for current rates.
