Lodging for the 2014 Savannah Music Festival
The Savannah Music Festival fills our town like nothing else. We are inundated with out-of-town guests who vie for lodging well in advance of the shows. Case in point: we’re already sold out for the weekends through the schedule of the 2014 Savannah Music Festival, just as many of the weekend festival shows are also already sold out – but there are plenty of spots open for mid-week lodging AND shows! So go ahead and book a room for those mid-week gems!
Savannah Villas’ location means that the majority of the festival venues are within walking distance of our Savannah Vacation Rentals. Take a midweek vacation and treat yourself to great music and the beauty of historic, downtown Savannah. We’ll be looking for you!
