Majoring in Hipness at Thunderbird Inn, Savannah GA

Summer’s great, but we’ll admit it – we like Savannah best when our friends from the various colleges are here! And if you are a new or returning college student and don’t know the Thunderbird Inn, well, there’s a cool surprise in your near future.

You see, you’re gonna want to show off your cool new hometown (that would be Savannah) and your cool new college (which could be SCAD, Savannah State, Armstrong Atlantic, Savannah Tech or any of the other academic institutions we have trouble keeping up with.) Invite your friends to visit so you can show off your great taste in geography and academia. It’s what weekends were invented for!

Authentically Modern & Hip in Savannah Since 1964 — Thunderbird Inn!

The DOCOMOMO US National Tour Day events in Savannah are October 78-8, 2011. The Thunderbird Inn in Savannah (circa 1964) is thrilled to be numbered among the modern buildings. We are noticing lately that our fun, experiential marketing’s cool, hip vibe — jump started from our highway motel’s “Hippest hotel in Savannah” (TM) slogan — is getting mussed about (inappropriately, we add) by others. We wonder, “Why trample on the little guy to inch into our hard-earned, groovy Savannah hotel lodging niche?”

So, today to commemorate the cool, modern DOCOMOMO tour and events and our “Hippest Hoste in Savannah” slogan, our so-cool, quirky billboard reads:

Authentically
Hip and cool
Since 1964
Do not go for
impostors

“Stay Hip!” says Mark Thomas, General Manager at the Thunderbird Inn in Savannah, GA
