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.

... desert later in the evening. All in all we could not have asked for friendlier and more accommodating people. During our Northern American travels we have experienced such friendliness and more than any of our previous trips.
Another fun day and ready for the golf at East Lake tomorrow.
PS: Matt was in the gym and bumped into Steve Williams (Adam Scott's caddie) this afternoon.
A familiar scene for us. Girls up early eagerly awaiting the alarm, bags mostly packed, Matt and Jen preparing mentally for a four hour drive (more so regarding sanity than traffic)...'we're on the road again'. This was formally our last US leg drive. Breakfast, car packed, four chocolate cookies from Reception received and we were ready to leave Charlotte.
We have a fair amount of experience driving in the US now and ...
Getting off from the plane after 10 hours, we're hit by the friendliness of the Atlanta airport staff. Apart from the stupidly long queues to get through customs...and the awkward point where my fingerprints wouldn't quite match the ones they already had on the screen. It took me about 10 tries to get the green light! Apart from ...
... other, especially if one of the parties involved is a current client.
We wrapped up at the meeting shortly before 11, heading immediately to see John Snyder, the CEO of BCD Travel, to give him a briefing concerning the developments in the GBTA planning. Although Thad works most closely with his direct reports and his immediate superior, John is still interested being aware of what’s going on, especially for a conference as important as the GBTA. ...
