Hyatt Hotels and Resorts today announced the opening of Thompson Savannah, the brand’s first property in Georgia.
Set along the banks of the Savannah River, Thompson Savannah, located at the junction of the city’s Historic District and its newest neighborhood, Eastern Wharf, is a joint venture development by Regent Partners, Mariner Group and Cadre. Through thoughtful design that combines historic architectural details and contemporary flair, the hotel honors Savannah’s vibrant history and celebrates the local community.
Matt Graham, General Manager of Thompson Savannah, said:
This neighborhood strikes the perfect balance for visitors looking to experience all the magic that Savannah has to offer from both a historical and a modern lens. Our riverside setting allows guests to take in Savannah’s burgeoning waterfront scene while also providing a timeless destination just steps away from the bustle of the city. We couldn’t be more thrilled to officially welcome guests to our property.
The hotel consists of 193 guest rooms and suites. The guestroom tower was intentionally designed by the architectural team at Smallwood to be perpendicular to the river, allowing all rooms to have sweeping, west-facing views of the cityscape or expansive, east-facing views of the Savannah River, the coastal islands and the Atlantic Ocean.
Dallas-based design team, Studio 11 Design captures the Southern landscape indoors through botanical accents, rich jewel tones, and custom stone tile patterns inspired by the city’s surrounding flora and green spaces. Indulgent comforts appoint each room, including spacious walk-in showers, residential-style vanities, in-room mini bars, oversized custom art pieces from emerging local artists curated by Studio 11 Design’s art, curation, and styling vertical, Lou Verne, as well as custom bath amenities from D.S. & Durga.

Executive chef Robert Newton leads the property’s restaurant collection, including the seasonally focused signature restaurant, Fleeting; the Mediterranean-influenced rooftop oasis, Bar Julian; and the hotel’s art-deco poolside lounge, the Sunroom. Chef Newton’s Southern roots run deep and his passion for simple-yet-refined, regional cooking is evident in his ingredient-driven menus. Additionally, Newton executes the hotel’s in-room dining and banquet programs.
From the hotel lobby, a grand staircase leads to a sprawling, second-floor pool deck, where guests can enjoy the splash pool, unwind in a daybed or cozy up in a private cabana. Thompson Savannah boasts 10,000 square feet of event space for all functions, including two meeting rooms, a boardroom, a divisible ballroom and a poolside living room with an exterior patio. Riverside event lawn with water front access is also present.
Meanwhile, Hyatt recently opened Hyatt Centric Downtown Nashville, Hyatt Regency Koh Samui, Hyatt Place London City East, Hyatt Place Ekaterinburg (the brand’s debut hotel in Russia), Alila Hinu Bay, Hyatt Regency Tokyo Bay, Hyatt House OSU Short North Columbus and Hyatt Centric Charlotte South Park. The American hospitality chain has also announced that its Luxury and Lifestyle brands are continuing to grow globally in order to ‘meet leisure travel demand’.
