It's not the money as much as the inconvience of not being able to walk back and forth. Being able to dash back to your room after lunch for a short fix-up time, is worth a lot.

The hotels/motels in the midtown area are nice, but they aren't the same as the ones that overlook the River, or are close to the various restaurants, shops, etc. ( and don't even think about the difference in parking.)

That's why I asked what is the difference in price. If it's $200 then stay in midtown but $20 then stay downtown.

Some friends just stayed at the Residence Inn on W Charleston, and it was a super location, for $159.
easy walk to everything in the Historic district.

I'm from Augusta and somehow in my 29 years on Earth had never made it to Savannah... until last December for my anniversary with my wife. We stayed at the Grand Bohemian on the Savannah River and it was great. Trust me, you want to stay on/near the river and be free to walk around town, come back to the hotel and head back out again... just like somebody else mentioned above. I was very impressed with the Downtown area and had a great time staying on the river. I've been to London, Paris and through the countrysides of the U.K. and France... looking at River Street from the river looks just like the old stone buildings of Europe. Awesome historical/cultural vibe on the river for sure.

Make a day trip to Tybee Island and Ft. Pulaski... good stuff.

There are also less expensive options like the Days Inn and the Hamton inn which are right on Bay st. I've been told the Marshall House has comparatively reasonable rates. The Bohemian is a good place to go for a drink, even if you don't stay there.
