... and hanging out for a little while. Kevin's home backs up to a huge piece of property where they get all kinds of wild animals wondering about. Kevin says the only dangerous ones might be the coyotes.
The Stricklin's hospitality was for us to stay and eat or stay over night, but the call beckoning home was strong. We hit the road late in the afternoon to get south of Atlanta so we wouldn't have to face Monday traffic. The plan was to get home ...
... strange. And the mall was massive. Before going in we ate at Johnny rockets. We had a really lovely burger and it was a traditional American fast food style bar. When we saw the movie I have never seen such a fancy screen in my life. The chairs were like red leather sofas and the seats really reclined. The movie, guardians of the galaxy was really funny. We would defo see it ...
World of coke was another awesome day out. Just such a different thing to do and it was just a great cool atmosphere to be their. A real family feeling. We walked right into the lobby which had massive coke bottles designed all over the world. We then went into the loft, we were surrounded by coke artefacts from though out time which was special. The guy who gave us the talk was really funny too. Then we went into the coca cola theatre were they put a 5 min feel good film on. It ...

It's been five days since I've been able to upload any blog updates. So yes - you guessed it, here I sit in another McDonald's updating this crazy blog thing. It's been a little tough for me being disconnected from the inter-web, but all is ok now. I've added some of the pictures that I took while we visited Clinton as I didn't have the chance to post these on my last update. Since my last posting the girls have concentrated on their usual "antiquing". ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Atlanta Marriott Suites Midtown
After reading the reviews I had to write in. The hotel was EXCELLENT! It was clean, large rooms, the staff was nice and the breakfast bar was great. My personalized omellet was fabulous.
I would recommend and I plan to return again soon.
It had its good points and bad points...
We checked in on a Saturday. Checkin was prompt and polite. We had booked the High Museum of Art package. When we got to our room we realized they had not given us our High tickets. On the way to dinner we stopped by the front desk and inquired about the tickets. We were told they would be sent up ASAP. We came back rather late and the tickets were not in our rooms. We were going to ask in the morning but totally forgot about it. Point being, if a room is part of a package, we should not have to ask for the package components. Also, I called down and asked for 2 bathrobes, since normally they are part of the deluxe rooms at a Marriott. The concierge called back about 2 minutes later and said they didn't have any bathrobes "right now." I wasn't sure what that meant - did they not have any period? Or were they just dirty? Point being I did not get a bathrobe. On a good service note, they did send up milk and cookies as a "thank-you" for being a Marriott elite member, so that was cute.
Good room notes: the room was very large. It had a separate den with TV, a large bathroom with a separate tub and shower, a big bedroom with a large window, French doors, cushy linens and a TV, and a small but nice for a breath-of-fresh-air balcony. It was very quiet.
Hmm room notes: the room had some flaws one would not expect from a Marriott. For example the shower was TINY with a very short shower door - I was taller than the door and I'm only 5'6". The shower had been retiled but they had a very old shower knob that really showed its age. I'm thinking early 80s? The doorknobs all had paint overspray which I found odd. Nothing major; I was just surprised to see this at a Marriott, having stayed at a bazillion Marriotts and being rather familiar with their quality standards.
Breakfast was OK; I'm glad it was included in the package because the $15.95/pp charge is a stretch for what they offer. The buffet was much smaller then most Marriotts and the bacon, sausage and pancakes were cold.
So overall, the room itself was large and pretty nice, but the whole hotel experience was nothing to write home about.
Atlanta Midtown Marriott
We stayed at this all-suites hotel in late September while in town for our daughters wedding. Check-in was hectic, as several different events were taking place, but the staff was professional and very accomodating. The rooms were very comfortable, the bathrooms very spacious and there was enough space not to feel crowded over a long weekend. All hotel staffs should be this nice!
Marriott midtown suites
my sister, nephew and i stayed at the marriott midtown suites at the end of july to see a ballgame, a play, and to do some sightseeing. we paid the full price of this hotel because we needed a suite. the best quality of this hotel is the staff who were always so gracious and helpful to us, especially the young concierge. had it not been for him, we would still be riding around atlanta. The problems we experienced kept me from labeling this an "excellent" stay. first, the linens for the pullout bed were not available even though the hotel clerk assured us they would be shortly. we called later in the afternoon, told that they would be delivered. ultimately, my sister had to go downstairs to get them. The coffee pot was broken..not enough towels for three people...no extra toilet paper in the room. these "minor" incoveniences should not have occurred for a hotel of this caliber and they detract from what would have been an excellent stay.
Stayed here on business and it had just what I needed. The suites were HUGE and really pretty. I was so surprised. It's right next door to Starbucks but that's about it in walking distance. The neighborhood is unsafe at night so be careful but during the day it's a bustling business community. What a great hotel! Oh and the pool!!! Heavely - indoor AND outdoor pool on the 3rd Fl.
Great value and plenty of room
The Marriott Suites Midtown was a great value. The rooms are suites and are very big; a couch, mini-fridge, seperate bedroom, etc. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly; some of the nicest I have encountered. Having a balcony with a view of Atlanta was good also. Pleny of restaurant choices in walking distance, and the MARTA station is just 2 blocks away. Great place to stay in Midtown!
Very spacious rooms
Me and my boyfriend recently stayed at the marriott suites in midtown. Wonderful spacious clean rooms. Great convenient location close to everything! I live in Atlanta and I chose this hotel because I had a gift certificate for the marriott but boy was I in for a suprise! Great staff and very friendly. Great bargain leisure rates. Me and my honey bunch also went to the Fox Theatre a very short drive away to see a Tyler Perry play to complete are weekend getaway. Highly recommend this hotel for the name,convenience and price. The food was also very,very good might I add!
Very Enjoyable Stay
Excellent location 1 block from the MARTA (Arts Centre), very comfortable suites, and staff is amazing I've never been greeted and welcomed in a hotel in my life. If you are looking to eat near by try South City Kitchen around the corner. A little expensive but well worth it.
Me and my boyfriend stayed at this facility for 2 nights. I am a marriott associate an was very inpressed with the service at this location. The rooms were very clean and offered all the ammenities that you could possible need. Location was great , expecially for some one like my self that rarely ever travels to the big city.
Surprisingly good hotel at a bargain price
Got this one through Priceline. Great location. Very, very nice rooms.
Excellent exercise facilities and indoor/outdoor pool. Friendly staff.
What a bargain!
