"Wonderful Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We were very pleased with our stay at the DeSoto. The hotel staff was courteous, friendly and professional and our room impeccably clean and comfortable, with incredible views of Savannah. Our breakfast at the hotel restaurant was delicious, too. Our only complaint was that the fitted sheet on the bed was worn, piled and scratchy. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and replaced it right away upon our request, but the replacement sheet was also piled and scratchy so we slept on the flat sheet which worked out fine. Otherwise we had a wonderful stay at the DeSoto.

"Great hotel, fresh look in a great location."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Enjoyed our stay. The hotel had been remodeled since we were there last. Everything looked great. Only downside was that the cable in the room only had a few channels that worked enough to watch.
