Historical Traveler Reviews Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center Atlanta
This hotel is on par with a standard Sheraton or Residence Inn, but the rate was more than I typically pay for the former. Check in was uneventful and rooms were quite clean and still fairly new. I was told that internet was free, but that was not the case. In fact, upon checking into my room, I discovered that in addition to paying the daily charge, it was necessary to purchase an ethernet cable from the front desk. This required a return visit to the front desk. Coupons were provided for "free" breakfast, which provided a nice assortment of fresh items including fruit, eggs, bacon, french toast and omlets. Restaurant service was friendly and attentive. Book store/coffee shop, restaurant and bank were conveniently located across the street. Rowdy student types staying on my floor tempted me to call security. Overall, the experience was ok, but for the price I would prefer a standard starwood or marriott where I can earn award points.
Great Room, Poor Service
The hotel is very nice and in a trendy area of town. Very clean room with super comfortable beds and nice drapes that block out ALL light. The fitness center and indoor pool are A+. I would give the hotel and Excellent rating except that the poor service at the front desk. The employees gave me the impression that they would rather be anywhere than working at the hotel and that they were annoyed at having to check me in, answer questions, etc. The security guard seemed exasperated that I had left my key in the room and was locked out.
Great hotel, nice rooms!
We stayed at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center during early December. I had a meeting there and decided to stay a couple of extra days to see the sights in Atlanta. The meeting was exceptionally smooth and the staff was very attentive. The food was very good and a lot of it. With breakfast, lunch, dinner and the huge breaks throughout the day, I was always stuffed. The guestrooms were very nice and well appointed. They are still very new and clean which was nice.
We went to the Georgia Aquarium which was a short cab ride at about a mile away. The location of the hotel was great as we went to a few restaurants in the area and made it so nice to be close.
Overall I found the hotel delightful and was a great value.
Great Conference Hotel
I was here for a Sunday - Friday conference. This mid-town location qualifies for the $32 fixed rate/no meter Taxi from the airport (same rate as the 'shuttle'). The staff all seemed somewhat inexperienced. The facility is just a few years old. The rooms have 2 nice desk areas (but no proper desk chair) and wired or wireless internet access is included in the room price. Small 1 cup coffee maker. November was very hot so the AC was needed, but it was noisy. Decor in the room was in the 2* range, but there was a down comforter (not used!). With the conference all meals in the dining room were included. There was plenty of food and a great assortment. Quality was sometimes an issue, Prime Rib was very good but steaks were very bad. You could get some made to order food at the grill. Fully stocked snack bars (drinks, cookies, candy, fruit, chips, ice cream) are available for the conference breaks. But the conference coffee was very bad, some kind of liquid concentrate that gets hot water added to it! But there is a Starbucks and bookstore across the street. Some casual eating places are on the same block, nicer places at 10 minute walk.
Great location, poor service
The hotel is located in the new technology square area off of Spring Street near Georgia Tech. As a redeveloped area, it's safe. The hotel is relatively new...the rooms were fine...the staff overall had a poor attitude, not customer friendly at all.
Bugs in bed
I went here for a technical short course my company sent me on. I was in the room all evening, watching TV, ironing clothes, etc. When I went to get in the bed at about 10:30, I pulled back the covers and discovered what looked like a tick! I promptly killed it, then went back and checked before I got back in bed. Found several more bugs, of various species. Needless to say, I got dress again in a hurry and threw all my stuff back into my suitcases. I caught a couple of bugs in the ice bucket and took it down to the lobby. To their credit, they didn't give me any kind of a hard time, didn't argue about not charging me or anything. They didn't apologize, however. Fortunately, I had a rental car and relatives in the area with whom I could spend the rest of the night. Lots of other hotels in the area within easy walking distance - try one of them instead! I will never stay here again and recommend another hotel to all of my coworkers who are sent to courses at GT.
A+++ Service, Food and Guest Room!
First experience with this hotel and I must say it was A+. Guest rooms were new, very well appointed and had all the amenities needed. The buffets for breakfast and lunch were huge and the food was incredible. The best deal I've ever had in Atlanta. We did use the pool and fitness center which is also rather large. What I loved about the hotel is the great location, the reasonable price, but above all, the service from the staff was unbelievable. They were all so polite and seemed genuinely concerned about our happiness. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Stayed here the night before graduation. Got a good rate by reserving early. The hotel was very convenient to the east side of campus. The room was lovely and all of the staff very nice. Our only complaint was that we could not arrange to checkout after graduation and thus had to checkout at 7:30am which wasn't very convenient.
Not up to Par
Stayed here recently for a week on business. Very average. It is new but the staff are undertrained--unable to give decent restaurant recommendations. The hotel food ia APPALLING and room service slow and unreliable. Touted as a tech hotel you have to buy ethernet cables if you forget yours and it is $5 per day for T1 access. It is targetted at the conference crowd (ie. busy bar and fast food) cannot recommend for other travellers. Only bright spot is the cheap eats in the area (student central) partucularly liked the Tin Drum next door--Asian cafe.
The best hotel in Atlanta!
The hotel is one of the best in Atlanta. The hotel is brand new and gorgeous. The service was very attentive and the amount of services available was tremendous. The wireless computer access, business center, and great dining room made my stay very convenient and relaxing. Would recommend to anybody traveling on business or leisure!

We got there for the lesson and learned how to do the basics. Then the band started to play and the floor turned into a bunch of swerving and swirling bodies. I have always loved salsa dancing and being there with wonderful people made it an awesome night.
