Hospitality company Hyatt has opened Thompson Savannah, its first Thompson hotel brand property in Georgia, the US.

The new property is a joint venture developed by Regent Partners, Mariner Group, and Cadre.

Located at the intersection of the city’s Historic District and Eastern Wharf, Thompson Savannah features 193 guestrooms including 21 suites.

Architectural firm Smallwood designed the guestroom tower so that guests have east-facing views of the river, the coastal islands and the Atlantic Ocean.

Designed by Dallas-based interior design firm Studio 11 Design, the hotel interior is inspired by Southern landscape.

Other guest amenities include 10,000ft2 dedicated event space comprising two meeting rooms, a boardroom, a separable ballroom and a poolside living room featuring exterior patio.

Its lobby leads to a pool on the second floor.

Thompson Savannah boasts of a collection of restaurants including Fleeting, a seasonally focused restaurant; rooftop oasis Bar Julian; and a poolside lounge, the Sunroom.

Thompson Savannah general manager Matt Graham said: “This neighbourhood 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.”

Thompson Hotels is one of the 20 premier brands offered by the Chicago-headquartered company.

Last week, Hyatt announced the opening of the second branded property Hyatt Place Ekaterinburg hotel in Russia.
