Situated in the heart of Savannah’s historic 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. An area in the hotel is dedicated to the history of The DeSoto, affording guests a glimpse of the hotel’s past. The original 1890 crystal chandeliers, once described as “sparkling clusters,” still shine brilliantly in the hotel’s lobby.
