SAVANNAH, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/28/14 -- Music can be as divisive as politics in some circles. Just as there are red and blue states, there are groups who listen exclusively to pop, others who look down on anything that isn't R&B and still others who only tune in to the alluring twang of Americana. To all such singular preferences, the city of Savannah answers with just three words: Savannah Music Festival (SMF). For 25 years the festival has united performers from these genres and more for 16 days of good -- and diverse -- music. And visitors from around the country are invited to get in on the toe-tapping good time by staying at the conveniently located Savannah Marriott Riverfront.
While there are many things to do in Savannah, GA, there is only one cross-genre music festival that has earned a national reputation for excellence, and that is SMF. Artists like country star Vince Gill, Scottish folk group Lau, the tenor Michael Schade and the impossible-to-categorize Becca Stevens Band are just a few of the acts to join in the crooning happening between March 20 and April 5, 2014. Performances are scheduled at 10 different venues around the city, but concert-goers will be close to the action, wherever it's happening, when they stay at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront located in the historic downtown area.
Whether travelers are looking for vacation packages in Savannah, GA or just a place to crash during the festival, they will find everything they need and more at this lofty property. An airy atrium greets visitors, setting the tone for the recently renovated guest rooms where luxury bedding and sweeping views of the city and River Street await.
In addition to the hotel's fitness center, two pools and Magnolia Spa, guests can explore the creative menu of Blue, A Savannah Bistro. This contemporary eatery is the hotel's response to other restaurants along River Street in Savannah, GA, and diners are eating it up. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it's an ideal destination before or after a concert.
Whether guests are looking to catch as many SMF performances as they can, check out the local cultural scene (which includes shops, museums and Savannah, GA restaurants) or do a little of everything, this hotel's exquisite amenities and enviable location make it a top choice among local hotels. And that's something that everyone, regardless of political or musical preferences, can agree on.
About the Savannah Marriott Riverfront
With an unbeatable location along the city's riverfront, the Savannah Marriott Riverfront is poised to offer a memorable stay for both business and leisure travelers. The museums, shops and restaurants of the downtown area are just steps away from the expansive property, while the hotel's 36,000 square feet of flexible event space is designed to accommodate any business function. A full-service spa, fitness center and indoor and outdoor pools translate to on-site recreation, while three dining options offer dishes that range from light snacks and cocktails to creative contemporary fare. No matter what brings travelers to the hotel, however, the welcoming guest rooms and suites ensure they won't be in a hurry to leave. Junior and executive suites, along with a Concierge Level, provide an extra level of comfort, although every guest room features sumptuous bedding. At this gracious property, memories are simply waiting to be made.
