Savannah, Georgia, is an old town with a new spirit! Thunderbird Inn is thrilled to be a celebrant of what’s new about the old, and champion of retro Savannah!
In November 2011, a guest wrote, “Feel new in the old” in a TripAdvisor review, talking about Thunderbird Inn in downtown Savannah, Georgia. The inn boasts new interior paint (inspired by authentic historic Savannah colors and Thunderbird’s original paint), and a/c and heat units with popular remote controls, plus hot popcorn on arrival. Those updates are not all that is inspiring guests.
To-go cup required to drink beer on Savannah historic district streets
In the Savannah, Georgia, the “to-go” cup is legendary. The open container laws prohibit the existence of open containers of alcohol in public (on the streets) [Savannah City Code Section 6-1215]. In the Savannah Historic District downtown, city law allows possession and consumption on the street of one alcoholic beverage in an open plastic container of not more than 16 ounces — the “to-go” cup!
Some businesses choose to keep pace. Others want to set a smashing pace. The Thunderbird Inn’s marketing team, lead by General Manager Mark Thomas and Marketing Executive Sandy Traub, decided to quicken the inn’s marketing pace in 2008, and have not stopped! In August 2011 the national newsletter pacesetters, MYEMMA points to the inn’s social media genius using Facebook.
