Situated in the heart of Savannah’s historic garden district, The DeSoto has a storied history, dating back to 1890. Having hosted celebrities, dignitaries, authors, and presidents, the original DeSoto was built in 1890 on the site of Oglethorpe’s Barracks and was the town’s unremitted purveyor of hospitality. The hotel’s current structure, completed in 1968, stands as one of the Historic District’s leading full-service hotels, providing the perfect setting for leisure, business, and conference guests. Guests can get a glimpse of the history of The DeSoto, in a dedicated area in the hotel’s lobby. Terra cotta artwork can be found throughout the hotel – originating from the first hotel – harkening guests to the 19th century. The original 1890 crystal chandeliers, once described as “sparkling clusters,” still shine brilliantly in the hotel’s lobby.
