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.

... talking very fast. Too fast for my limited Spanish to comprehend. So I had no idea I was effectively camping in Miami for the night. Until the American Jehovah's Witness and grumpy British man joined me in my base camp (beside the power outlet nearest the Starbucks). We soon realised we spoke a common language and shared a common inability to understand angry-mob-Spanish. Eventually I nominated myself to ask for more information about the situation (the mob now had their camera phones ...
... and Sara (Jesse and Sara were the youngest, most adorable newly weds I had ever met) left, we figured we would cut through the park to get back to the hotel quicker. It was not faster in any way. We got so lost. But in a good way. We had a lovely evening strolling through the park climbing up on trees, running around on a play ground...all under a beautiful starry sky. After we found our way out of the park, me Zev and Kenzie stopped to grab some grub before ...
... Siri directions was wrong again! I told Erik to turn her off before I threw it out the window...lol! Tomorrow we go see the Bears play the Falcons. I am excited because I have never seen a NFL game. Should be exciting :-) Monday we will continue our exploring of back roads in the south! Until ...
... use...unbelievable. To be fair, most of our comments re large vehicles have related to commercial ones.
Jen decided one last shopping expedition was necessary. We haven't done a lot and this was our last chance. We stopped on route at the 'up-scale' (never get tired of laughing at that) shopping mall Lenox Square and picked up a few last minute things before making our way to the hotel. A quick walk around the ...
I actually like layovers. The sheer size of the place and the volume of people that pass through this place amazes me every time I come here. It's like some sort of synchronized, ordered chaos that works like a machine. Since I'm not a regular traveler, I ...
