Friends own the Chromatic Dragon, a gamer-pub there, and apparently rents out rooms. But I haven't had a chance to visit them and find out how to rent a room with them or the cost. But if you are interested in something other than a hotel, and more along the lines of a themed b&b experience, then you might want to contact them...

 somehow missed your post, but thanks for your kind offer.

I ended up staying at the Residence Inn Historic District, which was is conveniently located to SCAD. The property seemed to be very new, so the condition was quite good. I stayed in a "cottage", which is more of a quadplex than a cottage. Overall, the room was was fine. Very large and comfortable, but the TV channels were terrible. (Yes, first world problems)

The front desk service was lukewarm, but that's not unexpected for Savannah. I'd asked about the advertised mixing hour, or whatever it is called, and was simply told that it is Monday-Wednesday. I experienced some door issues, and despite the fact I had trudged back and forth in the pouring rain, the same desk clerk expressed the emotions of a klingon. 

Breakfast is included, but it's the same mediocre fare offered by most places. I'd recommend Foxy Loxy for great coffee and delicious house made pastries (including some fantastic kolaches). http://foxyloxycafe.com/ In fact, because it was my daughter's hangout, we stopped there for dinner the night before. It has Texas roots, and in the evenings they offer some outstanding tacos. The shrimp tacos were simply perfect. 

There is no bar, but there are snacks available for purchase in a small area next to the front desk. Valet parking is recommended, even at the outrageous price of $12 per day. (sarcasm).  I didn't have time to explore the area, but there is a cuban restaurant a very short distance away that looked interesting. http://ranchoalegrecuban.com/
