The display of gemstones, most especially amethyst, considering purple is my favorite color, proves an immediate draw. Little did I know that before long, I’d be won over by the JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District in more ways than I could count and ones that elevated this property high on the list of spots that call for a must-do-again experience. It’s a place where it’s possible to find everything you could want to take in within reach.
Located on the Savannah Riverfront in the heart of historic Savannah, the Plant Riverside District offers shopping, dining and night-life entertainment.
At JW Marriott, you can have your pick at the type of experience you’d prefer by choosing from a stay that features three different concepts: Power Plant, Three Muses or Atlantic. At Power Plant, you’ll find the aforementioned gemstones on display along with a life-size, chrome-dipped dinosaur in the lobby. This part of the property, originally a power plant, has been repurposed as a contemporary riverside retreat. It includes art galleries, a rooftop lounge and on-site options for food and drink, including the unique and captivating Baobab Lounge, which makes for another escape on property. In a setting that celebrates African cultures, with artwork from different regions of Africa, Baobab serves up small plates, wine and cocktails.
The hotel’s Three Muses concept caters to those who appreciate a whimsical and glamourous touch, while the Atlantic features a maritime setting.
All within walking distance of this home away from home, there are experiences such as Graffito, which serves Neapolitan-style pizza (this writer enjoyed salad while daughter and hubby stayed with the main offering of pizza), Electric Moon Skytop Lounge and District Gelato. Plant Riverside District also includes jewelry shops, boutiques, dessert spots and more.
It all makes for plenty to do, whether plans for a visit here include getting out into the city or for just time at this Georgia gem — perhaps one of Savannah’s best-kept secrets.
