Hotel vacancies remain for St. Patrick's Day festivities

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Traditionally, if St. Patrick's Day falls on a Saturday it means green for area hotels. But not all the hotels in the city are sold out.

That means those wishing to still head to the Hostess City may just be able to score a hotel room.

City Market is one of the hot spots for the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Several hotels taking to social media sites to get the message that they still have rooms open. The Savannah Area Chamber and Visitors Bureau is also making sure that message gets out on social networks. Visit Savannah say it is their responsibility to make sure the word gets out.

"I certainly think it's Visit Savannah's role, make it easy for people to come to the community, and kind of communicate all the options," said William Hubbard, CEO of the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce.

Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce also said it's not unheard of for hotels not to be sold out by the Wednesday before St. Patrick's Day. 

"I don't think it's a concern. I think people make their travel decisions a little later than used to years ago.  We certainly have more hotels than we used to have. The weather, as I mentioned, is a little uncertain until three to four days out and now you know what's going to happen; we'll see them fill in; it'll be a huge crowd like usual," he said.
