Did not like the W
I just returned from a one night stay at the W. I'm surprised at all the positive reviews. I stayed in a standard room which was decent size but very stark with white walls and little in the way of decorations. The furniture was very worn and reminded me of low end IKEA furnishings with scratches and water stains. Besides the bed, the only other place to sit was on a lounge chair in the far corner of the room. The bathroom had a nice shower but was very small with only one sink and little room to move around. There was no shower door which created a nice look but it was very easy to flood the small bathroom. The tv was old and probably 25 inch in size. On the plus side the bed was very comfortable and the linens and pillows were nice. There was a combined dvd/vcr player and a cd player in the room.
The cooling was very irratic and every time the ac came on it would blow right on you which was annoying. The lobby was very active with a busy night life and it was walking distance to a large mall but I didn't get to see it. Overall the hotel felt like a Holiday INN which had be redone with dark lighting and contemporary furniture. I must say overall I was expecting much more.
New level of incompetence
We began our getaway at the W by being given the keys to a suite after booking on the internet what we believed to be reasonable rate. Upon entering the suite, we immediately noticed clothing, a cell phone, an unmade bed and the to our shock that the room was still occupied. We were then given new keys to a room that was not a suite and did not match the ameneties we booked and had received confirmation of. Later that night we retired to our room and were disturbed by a houskeeper that was concerned a hair dryer provided in the bathroom by the hotel was missing its cloth bag covering. The dresser door in the wardrobe was so warped that it didnt open no matter how strong the pursuasion. Our chance to sleep in Saturday morning was ruined by the front desk calling early in the morning to say our credit card needed to be run through again. At check out we were told there was no need to run our card again. My wife asked to see the bill and we found that we had been billed $393.00 for the night which was over twice our internet booking rate. The Desk manager said they never have a rate that high and spent some time correcting it. I am still worried that it could prove to be a problem. I believe I could find more competence booking a night at a local fraternity house. THe bar is about 12 feet long, and the retaurant is cheap tables and chairs set up in the lobby that appeared to be an afterthought. The rave reviews we read that influenced us to try this hotel must be from those who just do not get out much. Do not waste your money on this amatuer management nightmare.
I have seen better
The W Atlanta is and always will have some of the best beds in all of Atlanta, but so do all the W's through out the world. This W served its purpose of a big room that I needed on my trip yet i still dont think that this was one of the best W's I have stayed at. I stayed at this W some years ago and I always had remebered it being better. It was still a great stay but there was just something missing, mabey it was just the room. I do not know but if u find a great rate like I did stay there but you dont have to go out of your way to get a room. There are other amazing hotels in Atlanta.
When I die I hope heaven has rooms like the W!!!!!
My husband sent me here on a retreat from the kids.When I entered my suite I almost cried everything was perfect!!!!!! they had stocked the kitchen with all my favorites,left a selection of cd's amd dvds plus complimentary drink cards.The bar is awesome with the best bartenders ( Way to go Drew and Chris!!!!!!)I can not wait to stay here again!!! This time the whole family is coming for Urban Nutcracker I made reservations before I left!!!!! PerfectionnWWWWWW!!!!
Poorly Maintained Property
My wife and I wanted a quiet weekend away from the kids. We selected a "package" deal and prepaid via website. Upon check-in we did not receive our complemtary items. We found the room to be well decorated but with light bulbs burned out. The following morning I went to the front desk and was switched into the room that came with the package (200 sq ft larger - which should have been done at check-in without my complaining about lighting), received the complemtary items, and breakfast coupons (additional items that should have been made available at check-in.) The second suite was much larger and had only one burned out bulb. We spent $50 on breakfast for a waffle ($10), eggs ($9), milk, juice, and toast. Far too expensive for the paltry and bland food items. Upon check-out we were over charged for internet (double billed) and restaurant charges, while these were corrected no explanation or apology were offered. From this experience I would not recommend the W to anyone!
W Atlanta is spectacular!
We stayed in the spectacular room, also called the superior suite, and it was amazing! It had two private balconies, full kitchen, seperate living room and the Best Bed ever! Very clean with lots of towels in the bathroom and Aveda bath products. The late night food menu is not so good but we had breakfast in the room and it was outstanding. The staff was extremely friendly. I would most definitely stay here again!
Always a good experience
I stay at this hotel every 6-8 weeks and have always had an excellent stay. Even when I have encountered problems (which is bound to happen no matter how nice the hotel), the staff has been very willing to either rectify the problem or to make amends in order to make my stay wonderful. As with all the W's, the beds are incredibly comfortable and they have the rainfall showers. The decor is very Zen and relaxing and they have a good gym as well. The only negative is their breakfast room service - it is overpriced and not very good other than the coffee. For $20, breakfast should be excellent. Overall a great place to stay in Atlanta - they are a standard by which I judge other hotels.
Yeah baby yeah!!!
While my husband and I don't do our travels around Atlanta much we took a quick liking to the W. on our weekend to the Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Go #8!!! I must say, that is one fine piece of Motel! By the way, they get more channels than our trailer's 8' dish. "W" must stand for "Who's Who."
Keep an eye on your belongings
I stayed at this hotel in Jan 2004 and on the 2nd night I noticed that my beautiful antique neckalace which I laid on the bedroom desk disappeared while I was out for a 4 hour period. Housekeeping had been in there but according to security only the minibar person had been there. THis didn't make any sense. I was told that I would get a call from security regarding the missing item the next day, but didn't.
I found out later that a friend of mine stayed on the same floor in Aug 2003 and left a few of her items in the closet when she left. She called back that day and noone could find them.
I have a very bitter taste in my mouth regarding this hotel and will never stay here again.
One word: WOW!!!!
I have stayed here 4 times in the last few years. From the great staff, clean rooms, and heavenly beds to the hundreds of candles in the lobby at night, the lively music playing in the background, and the awesome food at Savu, this hotel is what created my desire to stay at other W Hotels all around the country!

From church we went to Kevin's house to visit with Tara (Kevin's wife), Tegan (5) and Kole (2). I was surprised to notice "Georgia" on Kevin's license plate and he explained that although he says he lives in Chattanooga, home is actually Ringgold, GA. It's amazing how easy it is to go from Tennessee to Georgia to Alabama in that area. We had a great ...
... strange. And the mall was massive. Before going in we ate at Johnny rockets. We had a really lovely burger and it was a traditional American fast food style bar. When we saw the movie I have never seen such a fancy screen in my life. The chairs were like red leather sofas and the seats really reclined. The movie, guardians of the galaxy was really funny. We would defo see it ...
... really interesting. We skipped meeting the bear. It kind of looked scary. We then went into the 4d cinema which gave us the secret of coke. It was cheesey and the chair hurt my back but it was ok. And walked around a pop art gallery were we got to make our own bottle of open art. It was fun! We then tasted it which was too awesome! We tried over 60 different drinks from across the globe! Awesome. We also got a free bottle of coke at the end of the day to take home. Wow. Good final ...
... Is Here, is a very unique shop, because it sells items made by local artists, and it has its own resident Santa Claus, who is every bit what you might expect. He showed me around the shop, and he was very informative and friendly. Of course, I simply could not leave without purchasing something handmade and unique, but it was a difficult choice as there were a few ...
... an early start again today. After staying at our Cancun Hotel we have turned into snobs, this one wasn't anywhere posh enough for us. Oh I did forgot to mention in our room at the Westin was a Jacuzzi bath, this is how fancy it was. So, today has been a long day already, we were up at 0400 to catch our flight to Atlanta, where we stop for one night before heading to Alabama, Memphis ...
