About The DeSoto Savannah

Located in Savannah, Georgia, The DeSoto Savannah provides gorgeous indoor and outdoor venue spaces for wedding ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, and engagement parties. Their landscaped gardens, cobblestone streets, and oak trees covered with Spanish moss are a picturesque background for this upscale hotel. Whether couples want to celebrate their union on a private floor, in a grand ballroom, or around an outdoor square, this Savannah hotel can accommodate their needs.

Facilities and Capacity
At The DeSoto Savannah, couples can choose to host their event in one of the hotel’s several beautiful spaces. The Grand Oglethorpe Ballroom is suited for larger groups of up to 850 guests, featuring elegant chandeliers, mahogany woodwork, and high ceilings. In the Pulaski Room, floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the veranda, and the inside of the room can also be outfitted with draperies and sheers if couples desire a more private occasion. An intimate outside wedding can be accommodated in Madison Square, a lovely oak-laden space just steps away from the Madison Ballroom, a 4,000-square-foot space ideal for a reception dinner. For couples who want a more private area for their reception, the Harborview Room, located on the 15th floor of the hotel, provides panoramic views of the city and exclusive use of the whole floor. The main area has scenic views, a gorgeous wooden restored bar, and other brand new renovations.

Services Offered
With wedding planning services, The DeSoto Savannah can supply all the necessary details needed for a wedding, such as in-house catering, in-house bar service, linens, tables, chairs, and dinnerware. Couples should feel free to bring in their own outside cake, for which the hotel will provide complimentary cutting and serving.

Cuisine
The in-house catering team at The DeSoto Savannah works closely with local bakers, produce farmers, and fishermen to bring the best cuisine to their guests. Able to create custom menus and provide complimentary tasting for couples, the cooking style can be American, Asian, Caribbean, French, German, Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican, or southern. Menus can also be tailored to fit specific dietary needs, such as vegan, vegetarian, nut free, no pork, lactose or gluten free, or kosher. Couples can choose to have a cocktail reception complete with hors d’oeuvres, or go straight to the reception dinner with serving styles such as buffet, French service, family style, plated, or stations. The experienced bartenders at The DeSoto Savannah can assist couples in providing a cash bar, open bar, or limited bar for their guests through the hotel’s liquor license. The following can be provided at the bar:

  • House beer, wine or liquor
  • Specialty wine or beer
  • Premium liquor
  • Signature drink
  • Champagne toast

    We had both our rehearsal dinner (harborview room) and the reception (Oglethorpe ballroom) at the DeSoto. Our ceremony was at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist, and we had a large number of out-of-town guests. We received a ton of comments from guests about how much they enjoyed the convenience of having everything so close. Stacia and her team were great to work with!

    What a fantastic venue with fabulous views of Savannah. The service was excellent all the food arrived together and it was hot and tastey! Maria our bar person was awesome and looked after all our guests so well. All the staff at the De Soto were incredibly helpful. Many of our guests stayed at the hotel and they all thought the rooms were gorgeous. Finally Dee was the most excellent coordinator. She was always available to us and everything went so smoothly. Such a lovely lady and so professional. I would totally recommend the Hilton de Soto for a wedding!

    What we love about the Hilton Savannah Desoto is that you have so many options to choose from. They have 3 large ballrooms that have 3 distinct styles to them. They also have a small ballroom that you can use as a backup plan if you choose to have an outdoor ceremony in one of Savannah's beautiful squares. The staff there is awesome. You can't beat the location right in the heart of the historic district!
