HOTEL REVIEW: The Alida Hotel, Savannah
This weekend we decided to take a road trip for the weekend to Savannah, Georgia. After searching Instagram and hotels.com for the perfect boutique hotel (that would make for some nice photos!) I decided on The Alida Hotel. I’m not going to lie, it was the bathrooms and bay windows that got me!
Check-in was at 4pm so we arrived a little after that by car. We decided to Valet which was $42++ a night. Not cheap at all, but for us, with a toddler in tow, it was more convenient. There was also street parking and a parking garage close by so if you’re visiting and then not needing the car for the weekend this is also an option.
When we arrived at the front desk the extra sanitisation and safety measures were explained to us.
- Every staff member was wearing a mask
- Masks were required throughout the hotel
- You had to take your own luggage to your room
- The Lobby Bar & Restaurant was closed, however, the Rooftop bar was open and served light snacks as well as Breakfast
- The rooms would not be cleaned during our 2-night stay however we could ask for clean towels/toiletries if needed
- You were given wipes upon checkin to sanitise your room again
- Remote control was in a plastic bag
- One family per elevator and there were tissues provided to clean the buttons
- Pool & Gym were open with social distancing required at all times
Oh, and did I mention that you also were given some delicious cookies and an empty bottle to fill up at the water stations on each floor. This is such a great idea, I don’t know why more hotels don’t have this option!
We headed to the Rooftop bar call The Lost Square, no happy hour but there was a selection of delicious cocktails and the small bites menu sounded delicious, and of course the views!
The hotel décor was very comforting and a little art deco filled with nice natural light. We had a King Suite with a Pool view which was definitely big enough for the three of us (2 adults and a portacot). It was cleverly designed with a bench seat under the bay windows and a clever use of space with storage, a fridge, and a small table that slides out.
There’s a cute gift shop in the lobby filled with interesting boutique items and the Riverfront location is a short walk to the Historic District and the hustle and bustle of the restaurants, bars, and shops along the river.
Oh and The Alida Hotel appeared to also be dog friendly! We didn’t use this service but we heard a couple of cute pooches during the stay and saw the doggie treats given out upon arrival to the furry friends.
Despite not being able to make full use of all of the amenities and having a fully functioning hotel, we would definitely visit The Alida Hotel again. It would be perfect for a romantic weekend away, staycation or trip with friends. Highly recommend staying here for your next trip to Savannah y’all!
