Additionally, the spacious suites feature a sitting area with a cozy sleeper sofa. Kick start each morning at the free, hot breakfast buffet which includes hot and cold items like eggs, oatmeal, cereal, yogurt or fruit. “On the Run” breakfast bags are available to-go Monday through Friday as well.

We were in town for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon. Although we live only an hour away, we prefer to spend the night and take a race shuttle from near the hotel to the start line.
Before leaving home, the hotel called yo say our request for a late could not be honored because of a special event the next day. I appreciated the notice although we were disappointed.
When we checked in, no luggage carts were available. Samantha was kind enough to check the floors and brought two carts to the lobby. She also mentioned that the hotel would have snacks and water available early in the morning since runners needed to leave the hotel well before breakfast began at 6 am. A generous supply of bananas, water, granola bars, etc were out before 5:30 am.
The hotel also provided a race booklet to answer any questions about race logistics.
For these hospitality touches, the Hampton Inn Savannah Airport continues to be our ‘go-to’ hotel.
I was greeted with a smile and recognized for my Silver status by the front desk staff. I was provided a complimentary room upgrade to a suite that was filled with everything I am accustomed at my home except the noise. The level of comfort was unmatched and the level of satisfaction for the breakfast bar was high. Parking is not a problem at this hotel and the neighborhood is safe. This property backs up to a small lake or large pond, you come and make the choice!
