Not a nice place to stay
I have not stayed in as many hotels has some but I know what I can expect for my money and this hotel does not measure up.
My wife and I were to stay for a week so we requested a King size bed but even after making the reservation over 2mths in advance the best they could do when we arrived were two doubles. Okay perhaps it was for the best as my wife was lucky enough not to have been attacked by the bed bugs that plagued my bed. Nothing worse than a bunch of red itchy spots all over your legs when you wake up.
The room was so small we had to step outside to change our minds. Seriously it was small. It was located in a corner right beside a doorway that seemed to attract smokers and cell phone talkers. So when the wall mounted AC unit was turned on to drown out their blabbering it would draw in all of the smoke.
The parking garage is also very small and costs $10 a day. Do not try and park in their if you are timid and drive anything larger thatn a scooter. The "brunch" as they put it seems to mostly consist of bacon and is cold.
Hotel staff are disinterested and the Internet computer was out for most of our abbreviated stay. Did I mention I was supposed to stay for the week, well I bailed after the 2nd night to a cheaper much nicer alternative up the street.
If I can say one nice thing about the hotel it is that the drinks are free for happy hour. This is a good thing because after I get drunk the bed bugs get drunk and they quiet down.
Not really impressed. Don't stay here go somewhere else
Good Value, but . . .
Stayed 2 nights for a wedding weekend (hotel was selected by the bride and groom, because the hotel was willing to reserve a large block of rooms and the price was reasonable for a diverse group of OOT guests). The staff was very friendly and helpful, but they can only do so much with this particular property. The suites have a decent layout but were a bit dingy (euphemistically referred to in other reviews as "charming"), and the bathrooms were tiny. Our second floor, streetside suite was fine, but lots of street noise from traffic, valet parking, etc. The common areas were small and somewhat awkward, although we made the best of the "Club" for complementary breakfast and cocktails. The underground parking "garage" was an adventure, even for our mid-size SUV. I think I set a new personal record with a "16 point turn" trying to get into a space one night. Overall, sort of a typical "Best Western" stay . . good, not great. Given the reasonable pricing and the good service, though, it would be hard to complain.
Ok, sure this hotel has some character, but when I went with my school choir we had a TINY 15 by 25 room at the most...with two double beds in it. The bathroom hardly had enough room to walk in let alone wash your face or take a shower. The breakfast was okay but the room maid did a very poor job. It must've been a male, because the toilet was used and the seat was up. I was in a room with all girls...I don't think we'd put up the seat and I was the last one out of the room. The bed's were hard and close together, there was absolutely no room to walk, and the walls were so thin I could hear everything outside. I honestly did not enjoy my stay.
A place to return to
If you want to stay in a charming old hotel with some real character, this is the place! The breakfast is good, the free drinks in the evening, and the free internet service are great ideas but what really makes the difference is the friendly people! From Anthony and John at the front desk to Darrin in the bar -- these folks want you to call this place home. I stay there on all my visits to Atlanta and will never change. If you are looking for a new look and stuffy service - stay away from this place!
worst experience in our life. Fecade is impressive. Building is very old. wall separation is paper thin. if you wanna sleep and somebody is watching TV or chatting you will not be able to sleep. Please dont go there if you want to take an exam next day! Beds are not comfortable at all. Piece of --- and hell hole in the middle of the city.
I took my fiance' there, this past Saturday, for his birthday. I was pleased from the time we entered. the ladies at the front desk were very friendly. you would think they'd known you forever. They even suggested some great places to eat and to even take us there. the hotel was in a very convenient location. We were not even a half mi. away from the comedy show i took him to see. so we got to walk while everyone else had to pay for parking. speaking of parking, there is a $10 fee, to park. And the garage is tight. and it has lots of columns you have to squeeze between. so, drive a smaller car if you can. (unless you know how to whip that SUV like i can) But once you, go inside you forget about it. this is a beautiful, clean, friendly, and affordable place. The breakfast was good. (So what, if you had to pour your own waffle. It only takes three mins.) when i go back, to atl, this is where i'm staying. One last thing. I NEVER, EVER take baths at a hotel. Only showers. Even then, im standing on a towel so not to get germs or because the tub looks dirty. but here, at the granada, I actually sat my tush in the tub. Now that says alot about this place, to me. I felt so at home. It was quiet. and very private. i hate it when you go to hotels and the maid knocks on the door. And if you dont feel like anwering it they walk in on you. here, i never saw a maid. and they even had the chain latch on the inside in addition to the lock. i liked that.
anyway i've rambled long enough. just want you to know this is a good choice.
Great hotel with character!!
We just stayed Thursday and Friday nights at the Granada Suites and loved it. It wasn't the fanciest hotel we've stayed in, but it had lots of character and was in a good location. It is definately an old hotel, but our room with a jacuzzi tub was large and clean and had a good bed, a nice bar w/ bar stools, microwave, fridge, and bar sink. The evening coctail hour had great drinks and snacks and the bartender was so friendly. The whole staff was great - friendly, personable, and helpful with suggestions and directions to anywhere we wanted to go. This was our first trip to Atlanta and the MARTA (across the street) was very easy to use. We did drive to a mall and to Chastain ampitheatre in Buckhead, and had NO problem, though, with our good directions from the girls at the desk. We would definately recommend this hotel for the price and the amenities that go along with it and would stay here again.
Decent for the money
This is hotel is older, built in 1923 in the historic part of Midtown, Atlanta. This hotel actually used to be apartments, so you get more in room amenities than most hotels. I called this facility to ask some questions before booking our reservation and the lady that booked our room gave us a 2 bedroom suite (one room had a queen bed, the other room had two double beds) since there was 4 of us. Therefore, you may want to call to make your reservation to get the exact type of room you need since they vary. We paid $89/night... it cost $10 a night to park. Our suite had a full kitchen with a living area downstairs and the bedrooms upstairs. The only drawback is that the furnishings were a little outdated, but it was clean. The breakfast was great and the free shuttle was a must since you can't park anywhere easily in Atlanta. Overall, we had a good experience.
Had a wonderful stay!
We had a wonderful stay at the Granada. Our room was large and comfortable. The staff was pleasant and accomodating, especially the bartender at the evening cocktail hour. The hot breakfast in the morning was great. It is located directly acrosss the street from the MARTA which is easy to use. And the shuttle driver will take you almost anywhere you want to go! We'd recommend this hotel to anyone.
Good until they cheat you with the bill!
They make it pleasant but they're after your money. They
thwarted my attempt to save money by sharing a room with a starving student from Sweden, who I hadn't seen, by telling me he hadn't arrived when he in fact had. They didn't pass along my notes to him should he arrive and day after day denied he was there. We found each other on the sixth day, but you guessed it, they thought they were so generous to reduce our bill by one night and charged both this poor student and me for separate rooms.
Be safe and stay away.

So anticlimactic! So weird. Once again I pack..! Had dinner with my parents. They took away half of my luggage since I'm flying to Philly tomorrow!! Was so nice to see them :D Helped pack the office and gave my parting speech to the students... Currently waiting for the slideshow to play and I head to the airport at ...
... to be at the places. They definitely were, but it's like a switch these days with smart phones. Unless something is entertaining them in their faces or they are forced to interact, they whip out their phones. They are super nimble and fast with the apps too. My students were excited to show me how to use Snapchat and even made a Snapchat story about my class. They are so silly and funny! If I feel like this, being 10 years older than them, how the heck ...
... hostel with my beautiful navy and black rucksack! Life was good again! HOWEVER... I opened it and everything smelt of herbal essence shampoo... All my toiletries had smashed and my clothes were soaked.. So still no clothes to wear... Anyway - it's been the longest week ever! Delays, transfers, travelling around American states, losing luggage, eating **** food, meeting amazing people but omg I'm happy right now :) Peace and love kids ...
Woke up yet again at 8:30am to have plenty of time to get to the airport for our 12:40pm flight to JFK. The flight was full, so we would be using our vacation passes, which happened to be my last one until November 8th, Jeff's anniversary date with Delta.
Got checked in for the flight, went through security, claimed our Duty Free tax return & stopped to have our last Irish breakfast. ...
... grabbed a couple of umbrellas and headed out. The rain was really coming down so the umbrella did little except keep our head dry. Luckily it was only across the street. We got our tickets and went it. It was a good movie. Once the movie was finished, we headed back and made plans for the following day. I was heading to Nashville, Arron and Lee, Indianapolis for work. So we were both going to drive to Nashville and spend Thursday night in town. Sounded like a good idea to me. We went to ...
