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.

... anyone without some nervousness. Mostly though, I'm excited. I know it's going to be an amazing 4 1/2 months that I'm sure will teach me a lot about myself and will give me experiences of a lifetime.
I'll try to keep this up fairly regularly with posts about what I'm experiencing, what I'm seeing and what I'm feeling. I'm so grateful to have this opportunity and can't wait to see what's in store with me over the next 4 months! ...
The day started with a minor flight delay but a short two hour flight into Atlanta for Jared. Natalie was waiting with open arms for a long overdue hug! Our first stop was to the Park Tavern at Piedmont Park. Where we sat under the covered patio by the fire while watching ice skaters try to show off their best moves. We indulged in seasonal spiced beer (brewed right on site), mimosas, and spiced whiskey shots. And ...
... a place where things like prices and speed limits don't seem to apply until they do. The accommodation was no different. We arrived at what seemed a nice motel that is part of a chain called "Red Roof Inn" and the lady made us wait at the counter while she worked on the computer. That was a fail and a first strike. Secondly she seemed really disinterested at being there, which is no way to greet guests and potential customers. She finally served me and I said I was interested in ...
Flying out of Atlanta to Newark, New Jersey on Delta Airlines. I will be joining the New Jersey Holocaust Commission and fly out of New Jersey on the United Airlines for Berlin, Germany.
We crossed I-20 on Hank Aaron Drive and walked past the Olympic Flame tower and Olympic rings that span the street. These are from the 1996 Summer Olympics.
We walked to the former Altanta-Fulton County Stadium. The stadium was built in 1965 and imploded in 1997. A plaque marks the spot where the ball landed when Hank Aaron hit his historic 715th home run on April 8, 1974. We then crossed the parking lot toward the new baseball ...
