The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the travel industry like a nuclear bomb, with hotels taking the brunt of the impact. In Savannah, the pandemic came just as the city was in the midst of a hospitality revolution. And it takes more than one defeat to end a revolution. 


With rooms starting in the low $100s, Tru by Hilton offers travelers a “fun-sized” hotel experience on a fun-maximizing budget. The location in Midtown means you can rest your head in peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown while still being just a short uber ride away from the sights and sounds.


The décor is decidedly modern, with bright bursts of color and an economy of space. Lean design — think open shelving and mobile desks — leads to a great value. Admirably, they’ve chosen soap dispensers in the (actually quite spacious) bathrooms to reduce waste while still providing top quality products in an eco-friendly way.


Breakfast is included, and you won’t find the sad spread typical of most budget hotel continentals. Start your day at Tru by Hilton with a selection of donuts and bagels, yogurt with a topping bar, waffle dippers, or get nostalgic with a selection of kid’s cereal. Froot Loops may not be the healthiest breakfast option, but they’ll definitely make you smile.


Guests are perfectly positioned to discover Savannah’s Southern hospitality and storied River Street with the warmth of its guestrooms and dining spaces steps away. Hardwood floors and expansive windows give the guestrooms a traditional, yet contemporary respite filled with light and warmth.
