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.

Such an amazing venue! Beautiful suites, amazing ballrooms. It's in a great location in downtown Savannah, close to so many great places. The staff is friendly and wonderful to work with!
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!
Hilton Savannah Desoto is such a great venue, lovely atmosphere and service!
