Venue Additions & Renovations

The Cotton Sail Hotel Savannah has opened in the city's Historic District, inside a refurbished late-1800s cotton warehouse. On the banks of the Savannah River, the property has 56 guest rooms, a rooftop bar and a rooftop meeting space, the North Star Room.

The Perry Lane Hotel, part of Marriott International's Luxury Collection, debuted this spring. The 179-room property offers two bars, the Wayward and the rooftop Peregrin; an eatery, the Emporium Kitchen & Wine Markets, which serves Southern-influenced cuisine; and 8,900 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space.
Set to open in June 2019 is the 419-room JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District. The property will be spread across five buildings and will feature restaurants and meeting and event space. It's part of the up-and-coming Plant Riverside District, a 4.5-acre development that will include a waterfront park, a stage and a monument honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

Bootleggers, rum runners and speakeasies are celebrated at the recently opened American Prohibition Museum, dedicated to America's dry spell that ran from 1920 to 1933. The museum, whose motto is "good behavior rarely makes history," celebrates adult beverages in its Speakeasy lounge, where guests can indulge in classic cocktails and jazz.
