Getting There.



IHG Army Hotels on Fort Stewart.
The IHG Army Hotels Main Lodge offers large, comfortable rooms for both short and extended stays. Get the day off to a great start with a complimentary breakfast.

Family Fun Outside Your Door. 
Located just outside of Fort Stewart, the Corkan Recreation Facility offers affordable family fun. Fill your days with various activities, like laser tag, cosmic bowling, roller skating, and adventure golf. Take time out to cool off at the outdoor swimming pool and splash park.


Enjoy the Sites and Spirits of Savannah.
Located 40 miles from Fort Stewart, the city of Savannah welcomes visitors with a unique blend of Southern hospitality and charm. You’ll quickly discover why it has earned the reputation of one of the most “Instagrammable” cities in the U.S.


Stroll through the Historic District to admire the mansions and perfectly manicured gardens, and then soak up some local culture at one of the city’s many concerts, arts festivals, and theater performances. You can find out what events are coming up on their website.


If you enjoy shopping to your heart’s content, check out the quaint stores along River Street, trendy boutiques at City Market, and antique shops in the Starland neighborhood.


No trip to Savannah would be complete without filling up on the best Southern cooking and fine dining around, all served up with a tall, cold glass of sweet tea. Pass around huge platters of fried chicken and sides when you eat family-style at Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room. It’s a local treasure and one of the city’s oldest establishments.


If you want to cover the city’s main points of interest quickly, a guided tour is the way to go. You can learn about Savannah’s military history and visit Civil War forts and monuments, discover locations used as backdrops in films and novels, and sample local bites and brews with a moveable feast. Take a 90-minute walking tour of the city without paying a dime at Free Savannah Tours. There’s also a hop-on/hop-off trolley that lets you explore the city at your own pace.


Did you know Savannah is one of the most haunted cities in the South? When the sun goes down, take a ghost tour, cemetery walk, or spirited pub crawl – if you dare! Find out more about Savannah’s ghost tours here.  


Sink Your Toes in the Sand at Tybee Island.
If it’s beach time you’re after, head over to Tybee Island, where you can play in the sand, swim in the ocean, and gather shells and sea glass along the shore. You’ll find plenty of places to rent jet skis, surfboards, paddleboards, kayaks, and canoes. Climb the steps of one of the few remaining lighthouses on the Atlantic coast, or, leave the navigation to someone else and take a boat tour, where you’ll encounter local wildlife, including dolphins!


IHG Army Hotels are located in so many great vacation spots, and Savannah is an absolute standout for summertime fun.
