Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Inn at the Peachtrees Atlanta
Great place to stay!
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights while visiting Atlanta. I decided on this hotel after reading the reviews and seeing the hotel's proximity to the attractions we were going to see -- the aquarium, the zoo, Underground Atlanta, and the Hard Rock Cafe. The hotel was close enough to the aquarium and the Hard Rock that we were able to walk with no difficulty. We would have walked to Underground too, but it was raining heavily. There was a parking garage available for under $5.
We did have a few problems at this hotel. First was finding it. We had driven for 12 hours and it was pouring rain at about 8:00 at night. We drive around at least an hour and half before stumbling upon it tucked away. We asked for directions from people on the street (there weren't many to choose from, it was a monsoon!) and they were no help. Every other street in Atlanta is named Peachtree something. When we did finally find it, we were able to check-in quickly. Once you've found the hotel in the daytime, it's easy to remember where it was. I recommend getting Mapquest directions to get there, because AAA was a disappointment.
There were 2 people at the desk who were very friendly and helpful. They directed us to the parking garage under the building. If you have a large vehicle, parking may be a problem for you. I have a compact car, so I was able to find a spot. There are only about 30 spots available and the staff said parking is always a problem. Most of the streets in the area are one-way with one parking lane though.
The room was comfortable and clean. The hotel styling is very interesting. It is peach in color with a center courtyard that is very pretty.
We were easily able to find places to eat (Peachtree Center is just down the street and has about 40 different restaurants) and plenty to do. The hotel felt safe, there weren't people walking around at night.
From about 5-7pm, there are free drinks in the lounge. This was a very nice time. There were chips and homemade dip. The woman who served the drinks every night was very personable. There was a large plasma TV in the lounge and also a computer.
The continental breakfast in the morning was VERY good. They had standards like pastries and muffins, and also had scrambled eggs, biscuits, sausage, grits (not my thing, but others said they were good), bagels and even waffles! They had the waffle batter pre-poured and you had to just pour it into the machine and cook them. We made sure to wake up early every morning to grab some breakfast and bring it back to the room to eat later (after going back to sleep!)
All in all, I was very satisfied with this hotel. The price was less expensive than most places and it was definitely worth it.
A great budget place to stay in Atlanta
We just loved this place. We stayed here twice in the space of three weeks, once at the start and then at the end of our tour of the Deep South and by then it felt like coming home. The staff were beautiful! The girls on reception were wonderful, welcoming, and couldn't do enough for us. The rooms we stayed in were fine and the breakfasts were great - good choices. It's not luxurious but it's a good budget place to stay and we will definitely return. In fact, we look forward to it!
Stayed here for the recent ASM conference
We stayed here for the recent ASM conference; it was satisfactory. The staff is nice and accomodating to hotel guests. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful. The complimentary wireless internet access in each room was a BIG PLUS! Each room has its own coffee maker, which is awesome for those travellers who like to prepare their own coffee in their rooms (nice touch!). The hotel is located near the subway station, which was great for us. Also, it is near restuarants, shops, etc. However, the rooms are small and the air conditioning units are very LOUD! This hindered our ability to sleep well at night. I recommend that the hotel overhaul its airconditioning units and add central air instead of individual attached A/C units.
Perfect Hotel For Jets Fans
The Hotel is literally 9 blocks from the Georgia Dome, so weary Jets Fans can easily navigate back from the JET victory over the Falcons. This also allows more time to hit the various drinking establishments between Best Western and the stadium. Ok the rooms may be small, which is not a problem as long as your weights does not exceed 500 pounds. For the people that are put off by the parking garage, advice is to walk or take a taxi (thereby eliminating the need to even visit the garage).
No complaints with the Peachtrees
I am I guess amongst the travelling fraternity rapidly becoming an anachronism in that for my money a hotel is merely a pitstop where I may comfortably rest my head. Resorts and inhouse entertainment leave me cold. When I am on the road it is either on business, as in this trip, or I am exploring new vistas outside the confines of a hotel's walls. Hence budget establishments are my cup of tea, and the Peachtrees pricing and title of "Inn" should forwarn those expecting the Ritz Carlton ambience to stay away
Having read the Tripadvisor reviews i approached The Peachtrees with some trepidation. I was very pleasantly surprised to be met by friendly and efficient front desk staff, a clean and adequately spacious room and to note that although full there were no disruptive or miserable fellow guests in sight. in fact a fair chunk of the residents were, like myself opting for this venue rather that the more elaborate and expensive conference venues.
A pleasantly varied breakfast , some awesome coffee, and a regular happy hour were welcome; laundry and fitness facilities, internet access (dial up and wireless) surprising fringe benefits.
As the filth, mould and orphaned socks had been removeed before my arival, I have no hesitancy in endorsing this Best Western and would certainly stay again
Don't stay here unless you are desperate!
Our experience at this hotel left much to be desired. The room was small and cramped. Several light bulbs didn't work, and one electrical outlet was falling out of the wall. There was hair on the bathroom floor, and no hot water in the morning. The walls were thin and noise kept us up most of the night, despite calls to the front desk. The worst part was that we had to kill 2 roaches in our room during our stay!
Stayed one night for NBA/NFL games. The room was small but everything else was excellent. The room had fridge, microwave and excellent cable channels. Bed was very comfortable. Within a short walking distance to MARTA station. Within walking distance to most downtown attractions. Front desk had excellent service. Held my luggage for me while at game. Free breakfast buffet was vey good. Overall, had an excellent stay and would stay again.
Worst hotel experience ever!
I stayed here two years ago, but my Knoxville neighbor confirms that things haven't changed at the "Best" Western.
Our two double bedroom n/s was very tiny, cramped and dimly lit. We had to put the desk chair on top of the tv credenza to have room to walk around. The bath was barely usable, it had no tub, only a shower stall.
However, the best part was at midnight when they unloaded two buses of high school students, all on our floor. The yelling, banging, shouting and phone calls to our room went on for 90 minutes despite repeated calls to the front desk. The walls and doors provide no barrier to any noise. Especially the two "adult" counslers standing outside our door shouting directions.
Of course, nothing could be done to help us. No free night, vouchers etc despite calls to expedia and management. The parting gift was $16 for parking they "forgot" to tell me about.
My husband and I spent a night at the Best Western Inn at the Peachtrees. Wonderful central location on less busy W. Peachtree St. Only ten steps and we were in all of the action. Get there early because parking garage fills quickly. You have to pay $8 for parking. With the free breakfast buffet it is a nice trade. I should add, a very good southern breakfast. For the price we paid, $70 inc. tax, I definitely recommend!
Don't Stay Here!!
My wife and I had the unpleasant experience of staying in this hotel last night. We arrived late to find that the parking lot was full but were advised that the lot across the street was for "overflow" and the rate was the same ($8). This morning we learned that the rate only got us through until 6 a.m., after which we were charged an additional $15! Even in the dark we could tell that the website view of the place was not an accurate one. We had reserved a non-smoking king and confirmed that when we received the keys... "Oh, yeah, it is..." When we got to the room, it was a smoking room with two double beds. We rang the front desk and were instructed to return to the desk for a new room assignment--again, no king bed but no smoking. The room was dingy, the air conditioner loud, the staff unfriendly. Would say more, but the space is limited. Our only consolation was that we met other disatisfied guests in the lobby--misery loves company, I guess. Wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone!

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 ...
... parents who are like 25-35 years older relate to them!? Hanging around teenagers makes me think quite a bit about how I want to raise kids and the potential issues. After the food court, we took a "street car". It's a completely new thing. It's a blue tram that makes a loop around downtown. It's free until 2016! The ticket system and blue color reminded me of the tram in Stockholm :) the one I rode to Skansen to meet Christoffer! I think that was the ...
So made it to Guatemala - which is absolutely incredible! Arrived in country on Wednesday night at 8:30pm to be informed my luggage was lost... It's okay I didn't cry... Honest... We arrived at the hostel after waiting 4 more hours for the other flights to get in! We got told we would be staying in for 2 days to start our training! Safe to say I went straight to sleep because breakfast was at 7:30... This lack of sleep is ...
