Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Atlanta - Midtown
Renaissance atlanta downtown
we just came back from a cheerleading compition we stayed at this hotel and we got great prices great deals great rooms and much more.
we'll that's all the talking i'm going to do i don't won't to spoil it for when you get there. That's all the time i have today i'm ashlyn johnson when you come back from the hotel you should write a review so other people can learn about this wonderful hotel.
I had the most comfortable time in this hotel; I almost didn't want to leave it!! The staff is extremely friendly, courteous, and cooperative. The hotel and rooms themselves are beautiful and very clean. I had a wonderful view of the city from my room. The hotel itself was very quiet, and I felt very safe staying there.
We stayed at the Renaissance Atlanta on New Year's Eve, for a wedding reception. Every staff member we encountered was outstanding. Self-park was easy and a pedestrian bridge connects the garage to the hotel. As I carried my bag back to the hotel, a valet parking attendant ran ahead of me to open two doors. Service in the bar and at the reception was great. The hotel was beautifully decorated. The reception was perfect. Rooms are big and have private balconies. Absolutely no negatives to mention about this fine hotel.
Perfect for me
The reviews I read were not all that positive about this hotel, but I found it to be just right. It was centrally located for me (GA TECH/MIDTOWN) and I thought it was a very nice hotel. A previous review noted that the pool area was not that nice and I do agree. Nothing more than a pool surrounded by a concrete slab on the 3rd floor above the entrance. Rooms on the 4th floor offer a larger walkout balcony with chairs and a small table. The inroom refridgerator had seen better days, but I had no need for it anyways. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking is $10 in lot across the street, however, if you fly into Atlanta the MARTA station is literally across the street and the fare is only $1.75 to/from the airport and it only takes about 20 minutes (much quicker than Atlanta traffic). All in all, I was very pleased.
In general, the staff at the hotel is perhaps the best thing this hotel has to offer. I never waited long for requests including additional bedding, room service, valet. One nice touch is that they call immediately after to see if your request was honored in a timely manner. Staff was very friendly.
The room was clean but in need of updating. The television was a later model and had a fuzzy picture. The in-room fridge had a chipped exterior. The a/c unit is very old and blows humid air. The bedspread had cigarette burns and it took housekeeping two tries to find one that didn't look ratty.
The hotel exterior and pool deck looked absolutely awful. It looks like a business class hotel built in the Soviet Union in the 80's. The pool deck, while large, is stark concrete and offers an unheated dirty pool. The pool deck was littered with old newspaper and popcorn from past parties.
The balconies are narrow (careful if you have fear of heights) and the sliding doors are not well insulated from the street noise. Chunks of cement were missing from the balcony overhead, and I don't even want to know why human hair was stuck in the indentation.
They advertised a free business center but the printers didn't work. A no one seemed able to fix the problem.
We were promised two room with double beds in each in our reservation but received Kings instead. No rollaways to help. No apology or compensation for this oversight. Although we heard from other guests that the same thing happened to them and they received a free breakfast buffet. If it happends to you negotiate hard because it is not policy to make amends when they make room assignment mistakes.
Unless you're going to a Georgia Tech game this is not a great location. Stayed Sept. 24-27, 2004
Excellent staff, nice lobby, ok rooms. Not close to much except Varsity (burger place) and Georgia Tech Mgmt school. MARTA across the street.
Lots of street noise from major highways right outside.
It's a value question - grab it if you can get a great deal, pass it by at the same rates everyone else charges.
A Really Pleasing Experience
I read some of the reviews posted here after I purchased five days at this hotel on Priceline at $99.00/night. I was very worried. Fear not!
It is delightful. I have a large comfortable and attractive room on the 15th floor. The elevator is fast (and safe--room key needed after 9PM to access upper floors).
Service is so pleasant and helpful I can't believe it--extras delivered to my room within minutes; a razor, an extra blanket, fast room service and when I asked for hair spray, they sent someone to the local Walgreen's to purchase it for me--no charge! My shoes were polished, complimentary.
My every question was answered. The business center was well equipped.
The water was always hot. Let's see what else could I ask for? By the way this is a Marriott property.
So come and enjoy--it's in a downtown business section, not very much close to the hotel, but a 5 minute cab ride from the Convention Center.
Great value at this price. I will return. Nice buffet lunch--room service food was not great but ok.
Music Midtown hotel!
Ok, I stayed there last year for music midtown, and I had a blast. the people did make us wait a while to check in which was a pain in the ass, but the food is good, the restaurant has a fun atmosphere, and the rooms are nice. I had so much fun last year and the year before that we're oming back again this year. Music Midtown 2004! w00t w00t!
Terribly organized staff!
Worst hotel experience of my life. Could not check in until 6:15 PM as a result of a 'party' the night before. Charged for an dditional room I didn't reserve. Received over $75 misc. charges that I'm still trying to get removed!!!
Maybe for a little less
Noisy, food only OK and rooms in basic need of a makeover. Had this room been $75 per night cheaper, it would have been acceptable -- but the high room rates for these accomodations lack any value. You are within walking distance to the Fox Theatre and many mid-town restaurants and MATRA is literally across the street. Tough to recommend.

... filled with living plants to form beautiful animals and plants. You can see in the pictures. We spent a few hours there exploring, found all the displays thanks to Sarah and Emma approaching it like a treasure hunt and looked at the orchid house. We had some lunch and then made friends with the Atlanta Metro system which got us back to the hotel. We had a quick dip in the pool to cool down and then got ready ...
... car return and it was time for dinner.
We walked 30mins to midtown to a fantastic southern style restaurant called Mary Mac's Tea Rooms which was established in 1945. Great southern food; fried chicken, shrimp and grits, cheese and vegetable soufflé, mac 'n' cheese (but not as you know it). A rather popular restaurant as we understand it.
We look forward to exploring Atlanta tomorrow.
Cheers, the Berrys
... was going well. We quickly bought some American sweets and cherry coke, ran to the smokers' lounge (it weirdly smelt just like an old English pub back in the smoking days...) and made it to boarding just in time (we had a short connection)... And back on the plane for another 6 and a half hours, more movies and more airplane ...
There wasn't much news today! We drove from Tennessee to Alabama to Tennessee to Georgia to Tennessee then back to Georgia!!! Stopped off at an Outback Steakhouse on the way and ate too much (that's becoming a habit!) and then chilled out in the hotel ready for Six Flags theme park ...
... who sublet these condos ... she hasn't been paying our rent. We gave her first and last months rent up front, we paid for the middle months rent on time, and somehow ... that money isn't making its way to the apartment building owners, and they can evict us.
When we first moved in, the place was beautifully dressed, and surface clean. Then we had a look under the furniture, checking on Wombat who had made straight for the safety under the bed, and it was ...
