The rate for this hotel was great! The rooms were small but fine. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The fitness room was great, the best I have seen in a hotel. Walking distance to all attractions downtown. Not very much shopping or restaurants close by.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Atlanta
Great Stay at the Hilton!!
Parking at the Hilton was fast and easy. Checking in was a breeze. The entire hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I requested that our room be as near to the top floor as possible and have a beautiful view of the city. To my surprize, it was! Wow! A hotel that actually honored my request... I was impressed. Our room was neat, clean, and quite spacious! On our way to dinner, we noticed a glass elevator on both sides of the hotel. The elevator was exquisite in the fact that you can see miles of the city including some of the sky line which is amazing and beautiful at the same time! My partner in crime absolutely loved the view from this magnificant elevator so much, that we took several rides in it from top to bottom! The view of the sunset from this elevator is exceptional!
We ate dinner at the restaurant on the main floor. The food was great, a little pricey; but good. Our waitress was from South Africa or Indonesia... I can't remember, but when we asked her where her accent originated from, she was most greatful to share with us some of her background history. The service was great and I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner.
Next, we left the hotel and headed to the Georgia Dome where we had tickets to see the Professional Bull Riders Rodeo. The walk from the Hilton was only about 8 blocks or so. The Hilton is in the middle of everything... very convenient. Of what we saw, Atlanta is a very clean and friendly city. We had no problems, only fun!
The only thing that needs improving upon is the checking out process. It probably took 20 minutes or so just to check out. Aparently, the person who was checking us out was in training. Other than that, I would definately recommend the Hilton to anyone who is staying in the Atlanta area. The prices are very reasonable and the service was excellent! I give the Hilton a 9.8 on a scale from 1 to 10; 10 being the highest. Great Stay at the Hilton!! Will definatly come back again!
Why make reservations?
We had a room booked for Sat. Sept 11 that we had reserved over 1 month in advance. When we got to check-in we were told that they were sold out and we were being moved to the Sheraton (at their expense). We asked for a reason but was given none. My guess is they were too busy gouging the people from Florida avoiding the hurricane. Too make a long story short - I can't vouch for the hotel other than they can take reservations but not hold them. My suggestion is go to the Marriot across the street.
Comfortable and competitively-priced
I stayed here for a week while on business. My room was quite comfortable and pleasing (although the doors were somewhat thin so the hall noise was quite apparent). Convenient location. Great value.
Worst hotel I have stayed in
Stayed there for a trade show. Went down a day early, stayed in an Extended stay place for $35, much nicer than the Hilton. I had a reservation for Weds-Fri, and when my boss tried to confirm my reservation for me on Tuesday, they did not have my reservation for Weds. We reconfirmed for Weds. When I went back Weds, they did not have it again! They said they had no rooms available. I asked how they could give my room away, I had just confirmed in person the day before. They said they had one room but would have to clean it, and it would be at after dinner before I could check in. They did offer to keep all my stuff for me though, gee thanks. Anyway, there was no compensation for my time and trouble. Worse, I finally get to my room to check email, and $9.95 per day to get online! My extended stay for $35 and free high speed was far better than $149 night and pay for internet. Hotel was old, staff was unfriendly and not at all helpful. They lost my reservation twice, and frankly they could have cared less. Needless to say, I will never stay here again, Extended Stay here I come.
Great Hotel with Exceptionally Helpfull Staff
This is a full-service hotel staffed with friendly people who'll go out of their way to accomodate their guests. The rooms are classy with a full minibar. The casual Le Cafe restaurant at the lobby level serves distinctly flavored, delectable food in a nice, relaxing ambience. The fitness center has a fair amount of top brand equipment and an extensive locker room (showers, sauna, steam room, etc.). On the weekends, it's a real bargain (I paid $79/night).
Not bad for a chain
Stayed here one night after getting in from the UK and before travelling to Charleston. The staff were extremely nice and helpful.
The valet parking service was excellent. The bar was closed for refurbishment and the eating places were disappointing. However the breakfast was good. We got a very good price on the room but I would say that the hotel looked quite shabby and in need of updating.
Everything was very clean, though. Mind you, the pictures of the pool and the tennis courts are very flattering on their website. Not very appealling.
I stayed at this hotel in June of 2003 and I can't say enough good things. The rooms were lovely, the service wonderful, plenty of good food and a wide choice of eating establishments available 24-7. The only complaint I had was that when I went to the front desk in an attempt to get the code to activate the in-room safe (which I had made a point of calling the 800 number beforehand to make sure they had), the person at the front desk wouldn't give it to me and insisted I check my computer in the hotel safe, which, as it was a new laptop, I was leary of doing, so instead I wound up lugging it around the hotel with me everywhere I went (perhaps this is standard for liability issues, and I am just naive; however, I was at a loss, on my own, to determine why there would even be the option of safes in the rooms, if no one was ever supposed to use them). That aside, this hotel predisposed me to think kindly of Hiltons all over the world (even Paris) and I would try the Hilton first in any city I travel to in the future.
Comfortable Stay; Recommended
I was very comfortable during my stay at this hotel. My one night stay was problem-free, and the staff were courteous. The 24 hour Cafe-Express in the lobby was great for a Pepperoni Pizza and Anti-Pasto salad at 2:30 in the morning....the sandwiches looked huge and delicious, too.
I stayed at the Atlanta Hilton for one night driving from the northern part of the US to the southern part. I arrived at about 9pm to the delight of the valet men who handled my bag and directed me where to park. The parking facilities could not be easier if you want to park yourself and even easier if you wish to use the valet parking. It's all in the same building and well lit and secure. I checked in and as a HiltonHonors member, I was given a room on the HHonors floor which was fabulous! The view was that of none other!! Breathtaking!! The room was beautiful, sparkling clean and the bed was sooooo comfortable. I no sooner laid down, and I was asleep. I didn't want to get out of bed the next morning I felt so relaxed. But once out of bed, I felt well rested! The restauarant was lovely and the staff very attentive. The food was great. I only wish I had more time to stay. I plan to come back to the area one day, and I will most assuredly be staying at the Atlanta Hilton!!
A Great Hilton Hotel
The Hilton Atlanta is great! I was able to book room on their website for only $62 per night.
We arrived at the airport and took the public transportation to the hotel. We walked in and were amazed.
The Hilton Atlanta is a full service hotel. We checked in and had no problems. We were given a room on the Executive Floor. There are several elevators, so you never have to wait.
We took it up, and walked in. The room was fantastic! Two large, comfortable beds, a large desk, chair, TV, etc. were in the room. The view was the best. We were on one of the top floors.
As we looked around, there was a mini bar, a shoe shinner, hilton bath robes, and much more.
The bathroom was very nice. They had the Hilton products: Shampoo, soap, mouthwash, lotion, etc. They had a speaker in the bathroom so you could hear your TV.
Around 9PM, the maid came by and offered a turn down service. She also gave us mints.
We didn't get a chance to eat at their restaurants. The hotel is attached to a walkway that will take you right to a small shopping center.
We had to check out, but our flight didn't leave until later that day.
They offered to hold our bags, so we did. We came back later that day and picked them up.
The Hilton Atlanta is very nice. I would stay here again.

While listening to my most favorite song at the moment (Turtle, by Alana Davis), I've realized my trip has BEGUN!!!! It wasn't real until now. I'm sitting at my seat on my way to JFK airport, waiting for my dinner, and I don't really have much to say except that my excitement is finally here. No worrying, no doubting, just excitement. That's all for now. Sorry if you found this post boring, but sometimes you just gotta gloat. Love you ...
... ocean ecology and sustainability, but they were pretty buried under all the showmanship. I think it'd be nice for kids to experience ecotourism. Like how my mom and I saw dolphins in the wild in Honduras. We were (hopefully) contributing to the local businesses and sustainability rather than supporting the captivity and possible cruel treatments of marine animals. I remember people at the ashram did quite a bit of research before choosing an elephant ...
... I last sore Linda well over 30 years or more. We had a great evening, great food and it was a shame we could not of stayed longer but we had already made plans to in North Carolina.
... together to head out and visit some friends and family up the east coast. The rest of this story might be best told, not chronologically, but in the polar reactions my puny human brain experienced during the next month in my homeland.
I headed to D.C. and NJ/NY and South Carolina to see family and friends and to take care of a few things. It was really great to see everyone in person. ...
... the plane I went.
First observation - delay was very easy with a "nothing I can do but chill" attitude (note to self).Second observation - on the plane it hit me that the language is going to be Spanish (omg everything is in Spanish!). It's coming back.....
Flight was about 9 hours and I watched the first season of House of Cards (loved it). Didn't want to sleep as we would arrive in the early evening.
Chilean immigration ...
