The essence of Southern hospitality, The Alida joins modern life with timeless charm on Savannah’s revitalized riverfront. Get to know the rich history of River Street while discovering a neighborhood that is industrious, flourishing and always evolving. Anchoring it all is The Alida, an inviting hideaway that offers travelers unparalleled access to Savannah’s local artists, makers and thinkers.
Alida Harper Folkes was a celebrated entrepreneur in Savannah, who also worked tirelessly to preserve its heritage. We celebrate the Alidas of our time: self made artisans who cultivate our city’s contemporary spirit while honoring its storied past.
Nostalgic and forward-looking, industrial and gracious, curious and always custom—The Alida welcomes you to experience the inspiring warmth and unpredictability that makes Savannah the true Hostess of the South.
A thoughtful mix of residential furnishings and timeless décor, our rooms and suites invite you home to the burgeoning River Street neighborhood. Oversized windows in every room afford exceptional views of the historic city—an unforgettable union of antebellum and industrial architecture. Like Savannah itself, The Alida celebrates custom creations, original designs and local craftwork—so no two rooms at our hotel are quite the same. Return time and time again to the comfort of The Alida’s unreserved hospitality.
At The Alida, savor classic Southern fare guided by an appreciation for regional ingredients. Let us host you at Rhett, a classic American kitchen and gathering spot serving American staples that feel familiar, like a home-cooked meal. The lively Pool Bar, meanwhile is the city’s newest hangout for light bites, refreshing cocktails and good times. Or head upstairs to The Lost Square, a rooftop bar inspired by Savannah’s long-lost communal wards. And there’s never a bad time of day to take a seat at The Trade Room bar. Warm and always social, all of our dining spaces embody The Alida’s generosity of spirit.
With a stylish backdrop, and a team seasoned in our distinct brand of Southern hospitality, The Alida is the perfect setting for your professional or personal event.
