With the heatwave in full force, hotels across the state are scrambling to find temporary accommodations for the thousands of guests expected to arrive this weekend.
Savannah Hotels, which has its main campus in Savannah, says it’s offering rooms to visitors who don’t have hotel reservations for the weekend, and those who do have a hotel reservation can stay at any of its two Savannah Hotel Resorts for $75 a night.
The hotels are not open for business until Monday.
The hotel is also encouraging visitors to come by to check out the surrounding attractions.
The Savannah Resorts is also offering its own room and breakfast packages for $150, which include a buffet breakfast, a room for two, and a full meal.
Hotels are taking a wait-and-see approach as temperatures in Savannah hover around the triple digits.
Many visitors are coming to the city in search of a vacation, but some have also been worried about the possible heat wave, particularly after the state declared a state of emergency earlier this month.
The governor has ordered all government offices closed, and all businesses, schools, and public places must be closed to the public by the end of Sunday.
The National Weather Service issued a warning that some areas of Savannah could see temperatures of more than 100 degrees.
