My bags are packed and I’m ready to go!
OK, my bags aren’t quite packed yet, but they will be soon as my girlfriends and I prepare to head to Savannah, Georgia for St. Patrick’s Day. Celebrating the High Holy Day in Savannah has been on my Life List for a few years now, ever since I discovered that the charming Southern town pulled out all the stops for a legendary party.
Interested in a last-minute trip?
Hotels start filling up for St. Patrick’s Day about a week in advance. But the holiday falling mid-week this year has left a few hotels with rooms available. That means there’s still time to be impulsive and head to Savannah for a notoriously good time!
3 Last-Minute Hotel Specials in Savannah for St. Patrick’s Day
- Comfort Inn & Suites Midtown – literally had one room left for Wednesday and Thursday night when I called Tuesday morning. You’ll pay a little over $100 a night.
- Holiday Inn Express Savannah Historic District - queen beds available for about $230 and king beds available for about $300. Wednesday night rates are a little lower than Thursday night rates.
- The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa – they are currently running a special that offers your second night at the cost of the year you were born. (For example, if you were born in 1960, you only pay $60 for your second night.) Rates for Wednesday and Thursday night are running between $279 and $319 right now.
All three of these locations are in the Historic District, which is where most of the St Patrick’s Day festivities take place. The Westin is across the harbor but provides a complimentary ferry shuttle.
Remember, it’s never too late for a great trip!
