Currently taxes and fees in Savannah are 13%, with a local occupancy fee of $1.00, and a Georgia Hotel-Motel fee of $5.00 per room per night.

If you check out prior to your reserved departure date, the Hotel will add an early departure fee of one night’s room and tax.  To avoid this, advise the DeSoto at or before check-in of any change in planned length of stay.  Cancellation of your reservation less than 72 hours prior to arriving, for failing to show on your day of arrival, will result in a charge equal to the first night’s stay charged to your card for each room reserved.  Failing to call or show before 2:00 a.m. after the first night of a reservation will result in cancellation of the remainder of your reservation.
