The new Thompson Savannah is now open and marks the first Hyatt Hotels hotel in Georgia. With Smallwood’s architecture and Studio 11 Design interiors, the hotel captures the spirit and allure of southern life with its rattan and wood tones, botanical accents, and rich jewel colors. With the property on the banks of the beautiful Savannah River, Thompson Savannah offers visitors a modern experience of southern hospitality.
The hotel offers 193 guest rooms including 21 suites. Due to the deliberate orientation of the guest tower, all rooms have a view of the west-facing cityscape or the east-facing Savannah River. Rooms have spacious walk-in showers, living-style vanities, in-room minibars, bespoke art curated by Lou Verne (Studio 11 Design’s arts, curation, and styling industry), and bespoke toiletries from DS & Durga.
Velvety upholstery, dark wood and leather accents create the calm, refined aesthetic known from Thompson Hotels, while the artwork and prints highlight local creativity.
For dining and dining, the hotel’s chef, Robert Newton, relies on his southern roots to prepare the menus for the signature restaurant, Fleeting; Bar Julian, the Mediterranean-influenced rooftop bar; Conservatory, the Art Deco lounge by the pool and the dining and banquet programs in the room.
