Be Part of Springtime’s Music Festivals In Savannah!

Savannah Music Festival lodging Savannah downtown at Thunderbird Inn

Downtown Savannah lodging for Spring music festivals

Savannah really heats up in the spring, and as the hippest hotel in town, The Thunderbird Inn is right in the center of it.

Lots of March’s activity in Savannah centers on music. There’s the Savannah Stopover Music Festival with more than 70 up and coming (or already there) bands from March 7 to 10, but that’s just for starters. The Thunderbird Inn downtown has special rates $89/weekday. Rate code to request is S_Over.

The big boy on the music block is the Savannah Music Festival, which arrives March 22, 2012, and runs through April 7. It offers three weeks of world-class music in 23 different genres. Put on your dancing shoes at a zydeco dance party, savor the best in bluegrass, check out masters of jazz – all at venues within easy striking distance of the Thunderbird Inn. Request special lodging rates for festival goers — $89/weekday, $129 weekend dates. The rate code to request is SMF.

At The Thunderbird, we live and breathe the Sixties. Since music was so central to that decade, it stands to reason we attract a lot of music fans. And, with our vintage rates, you’ll still have money left over to buy tickets and T-shirts!

Of course music isn’t the only thing happening in Savannah’s springtime. The Ships of the Sea Museum, just around the corner on the boulevard (41 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., to be precise) will be unveiling its beautiful new garden this month, the perfect complement to an intriguing museum collection housed in a gracious historic mansion. The museum advises probably in April 2012, but no specific date is set yet.

Be part of spring in Savannah! Make your reservations today at The Thunderbird Inn, the hippest hotel in Savannah ™. To stay in tune follow us on Twitter @TbirdInn and Facebook.

We want to introduce you to amazing places that may otherwise be missed on a trip to Savannah … right off I-16 or arriving to Savannah via U.S. Highway 17 across the Savannah River and Talmadge Bridge –
