Read this after you read the others
After reading the other reviews before I went, I was apprehensive. I worked as a chef in 4 Five Star hotels in Dallas for 16 years and am VERY happy to say that the Marquis is a fine example of a 4 and a half star hotel. There was no hint of shabbiness ( mid September visit),, the doormen were attentive but not pushy when I said I only had 1 bag that I could handle myself. The desk personnel were very helpful and did not insist that I have a porter take by bag to the room. I was glad I was fore-warned about parking, tho not surpirzed in a mid city hotel. The Steak house was SUPERB ! Visit this one - it is gorgeous.
This is my favorite hotel. The atrium is one of the most incredible pieces of architechture ever! Any time I'm in Atlanta, I try to make it to the Marquis just to ride the glass elevators to the top. Even if you can't manage a stay at the Marquis, stop by for the ride. Choose an express elevator to the 47th floor, then watch as the atrium unfolds in front of you. Look out the exterior windows as you zoom past, and you'll see Atlanta from about every perspective imaginable. Yes, the Westin is taller... but it's the atrium and incredible internal design of the Marquis that make it the clear choice in Atlanta.
I recently stayed at the Mariott for a youth gathering I attended. I thought that the rooms were excellent and the service was optimum. If you have the means, I highly recommend staying.
Must have the Marvelous Marquis
For the past 12 years, we have vacationed south and every year we make it a point to stay at the Marriott Marquis in Atlanta.I love the beauty and structure of the hotel, the service and the accessibility of being able to go anywhere downtown easily. I have recommended the hotel to all of my family, friends and business acquaintances. Thank you, Tonya Shoffner
i recently stayed at the hotel and was very disappointed with how run down it is. My keys wouldn't work, the electrical outlet in my room didn't work unless you jiggled it just right, and they screwed up my room service order twice. I will never go back. there is a hyatt right across the street.
Whoa there . . .
I stayed at the hotel recently (Feb 2003) and it was just ok. The view in the atrium is really amazing but for business travel, it's overpriced. Parking alone is 20.00 a day for Vallet. The bellmen are TOO much. They are just trying to make a tip but we were told they were required as a matter of policy to take our bags up to our rooms. That was annoying. Overall - the hotel is nice. The food in the coffee shop is good (the bran muffin is great). Go to the sports bar (Champions) to drink - food and service is just ok there.
I stayed at this hotel back in 2000 and it is truly breath taking. The views of the city are great and my room was absolutley stunning. The staff were extremley helpful and friendly. The hotel is attatched to a small shopping mall, the only negative thing I would say and it's not actually about the hotel but the immeadiate area which I didn't feel that safe and secure once I left the grounds. I had not been living in America long when I stayed at this hotel and it blew my mind!
For the architectural appeal alone the Atlanta Marriot Marquis is well worth the visit. While it has a cousin in NYC, it fails to live up to its counterpart in the deep South but then again, all Yankee creations are dissappointing (just jesting, I have family in Long Island).
Now great architecture does not a great hotel make. Good thing that this isn't the only credit to the Marquis' name. The staff at the Marquis is superb. They show the hospitality that the South is famous for and the rooms are always kept immaculate. And I haven't even talked about the ability of the Marquis to organize a conference and have it go off without a hitch. For three years I have had the privilege of accompanying my mother to the annual South East Regional Education Board's Conference when it has been held in Atlanta and each time we stayed in the Marquis or even had an opportunity to just walk through it I took complete advantage of it, it is that amazing and it sweeps you off of your feet. I know the place like the back of my hand now.
Completely superb and unmatched in Atlanta.
I had the pleasure of staying at The Atlanta Mariott Marquis over New Year's. It is without question the greatest hotel in Atlanta. Walking distance to CNN Center, The Georgia Dome, Convention Center, Hard Rock, etc...
You must see to appreciate the hotel.
Best hotel ever visited
We visited this hotel not long ago, and it was the most
fantastic hotel ever, we had breakfast in Allie's Grill a couple of times and the manager there Hermen is incredibly helpful and very very hospitable.
We would love to come back to see him. He went to an extent that we have only seen Europe before, with providing us with whatever we needed whenever we need it.

... for all men, women & children. Freedom Hall is a collection of his historical works and achievements. Also the work which his wife Coretta, took over after his death. It was so very interesting and all that I hoped it would be. I have long had an interest in this man and his life. It was great. I then made a trip to the Aquarium. I spent the next 2 hours with the fishes. The Aquarium was full of school children having a ...

All the old signs, bottles etc that I used to see when I was young.....maybe I need to be in the museum too! The history of how Coke was invented etc made for a very interesting couple of hours. There was a tasting room with all the different flavours of drinks made by the company from all over the ...
These two days have been so busy!! Yesterday was a full day field trip. Full day literally like 9am to 9pm. We first went to the World of Coca Cola, an absolutely delightful, multi-sensory, incredibly engaging museum of Coca Cola, which was founded and is headquartered in Atlanta. They did such a great job with the history of Coca Cola, as well as sharing joys of people loving the products through 4D theater (3D plus wind/water/moving chairs effects) ...
We have been back in Georgia for the past 3 weeks...updating resumes, applying for jobs, and spending time with family and friends. We don't know where we will end up, but we are excited and trying to be patient.
We are grateful for such a fun summer. It was the roadtrip of a lifetime! Its hard to choose a favorite place or moment, because there were so many that were wonderful.
... all of the lines of rope weaving back and forth just for fun... The lady waiting to check my passport looked annoyed, or amused... I'm not sure which. I had 5 TSA people watch me unpack my bag and take off my shoes and beltand then all 5 watched as my bag went through the screen, and all five watched as I walked though the body scan thing... They were supppper bored... A friendly janitor named D gave me a map of the airport and told me the best ...
