Omni Hotel at CNN Center

I arrived at 12.09am and my body was still on Wellington time. As we landed, the crew announced that the ground temperature was 77 deg F. Was that cold or warm?
I have not gotten round to the imperial system used in the US. They measure distance in miles, temperature in Ferenheit and they drive on the right. I got to the taxi stand and …
Our last morning in NYC...really wish we could stay longer. Headed over to Penn Station and picked up some bagels and a chocolate Bobka. I just had to try a chocolate bobka after all the Seinfeld talk. (Ended up trying it once we made it home...not something I would want to eat on a regular basis - actually let Darin take it to work!) Anyway, …
So far so good. All flights are on time. We were able to see Liz's friend Hailey as she was changing planes in ATL as well as some other Crew parents on their way to CA for the National Championships. Row Hard CCR!!! Our next stop is JFK, New York, for a 3 hour layover before the flight to Dublin. The layovers are actually really okay as it allows ...
Overall, it has been a great week at the BCD Headquarters. The highlight of my day on Thursday was presenting our project to some of the BCD leadership. On Tuesday, we were given a project to create a tool that can be used to improve the travel management industry. This project was a group effort between Lindsay, Ana and myself. After thinking back at the past two weeks of our program, and everything we learned from the various travel professionals, we decided that a ...
We have arrived in Boston and walked a 1/2 mile to our next terminal. We are all sitting and waiting now for the last portion of the flight to London. On our last flight for awhile. First time on Virgin Airlines! Already hearing the British accent on the flight ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Omni Hotel at CNN Center Atlanta
stayed at the Omni CNN center in July, 2004. My room was on a high floor at the North Tower (there are two - North and South). The view was great as it overlooked Centennial park and most of the downtown skyline. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is big enough for wheelchair access. If you're not driving, the hotel is just a few minutes by foot from the nearest MARTA rail system (that said, I don't know how well you can access the city via a rail-system considering Atlanta's mainly a "driving" kind of town). The Philips sports arena, as well as CNN's headquarters are literally connected to the hotel. Heavy Turner Broadcasting systems presence to the Omni CNN Center (just as the name indicates), but funnily enough, the hotel tv system doesn't show all the Turner networks... namely my fave - Turner Classic Movies. This, along with the parking attendants not being able to locate my rental car (as I rush to catch a flight) makes me want to think twice before booking the hotel again on future visits to Atlanta. Evidently sometimes the parking attendants don't know whether the cars are parked in the North tower garage or the South. Oh, btw, there is no self-parking in the hotel, and valet is 20 bucks/day (excluding tips). Being located in downtown Atlanta, I guess it's a safer way to handle parking, however. Apparently there is a food court in the hotel a lot of people like, but my tight schedule didn't allow me the pleasure of sampling their service... I just hope it's not as bad as the room-service breakfast I ordered.
We were only here 2 nights, but the first morning our wake up call did not come in and we were late for a meeting. When we called the operator she swore she made the call, but we received calls for the wrong rooms throughout our stay, so she must not know how to use the phone system and our wake up call went to someone else's room that morning. The room service was less than we were expecting. But the worse was the last night when a family with what sounded to be 10 teenagers checked into the room next door around 2 AM!!! The teens screamed, laughed, and slammed doors, until security had to come to tell them to quiet down. They did, but the walls were paper thin and we were awake all night due to their goofying off in the next room. Not recommended.
Great View of Centennial Park and the ATL skyline
Hotel was first class inside, from rooms to decor. We really enjoyed our sunset view of Centennial Park. I got a rate of $85 from Hotwire and I was really impressed by the room I received. Would recommend it to anyone.
This was the finest hotel I have ever stayed in. I have never been served by such a great staff in all my years of staying in different hotels. Every person that you would encounter in the halls, elevators, frontdesk, telephone was polite, courteous and just downright friendly. The rooms were very nice, roomy and comfortable and the workout room and pool was excellent. Thank you for such a nice stay and a warm welcome to your hotel and to the city of Atlanta.
I stayed at the Omni from March 3rd to 6th, attending a conference.
Large spacious room, great views. The location is great too for all the downtown attractions.
My stay at the Omni was my worst hotel experience ever. Yes, the hotel is impressive. However, the bad far outweighed the good. Our room overlooked the atrium, an area where an event was held both nights of our stay. The noise was unbelievable. Loud music until at least midnight, followed by the sounds of what I believed to be the clean-up crew and some type of mechanical equipment. We ordered room service one night, and the tray left out by t he door was still there in the morning. The parking attendants were not particularly accommodating.
Our first time to Atlanta this past Christmas. We had a blast! The Omni Hotel is exquisite. There is so much to do in the hotel alone, that it makes the trip seem so worth while. The CNN Center is great for adults and kids alike. I would defintiely go back if I had a chance. Very friendly staff, great rooms, great service...PERFECT location.
I Love the Omni
I stayed at the Omni in Atlanta as a get away for an evening and if I could do it every night I would. The hotel is beautiful, the staf was kind and the room was wonderful. thanks for the hom away from home experience.
I stayed at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center recently and it was just a facinating experience. The hotel is located directly inside CNN's World Headquarters which is exciting! The lobby of the CNN Center is filled with all the major fast food restaurants and stores so you never have to leave the hotel to eat or shop! Directly across the street from CNN Center is Centennial Olympic Park, that is where the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games were held. The park is beautiful and you can see it right outside the hotel windows. Not to mention you have a great view of Atlanta's spectacular skyline. The service at the hotel was great and I would definatley reccomend it to anyone wanting to visit Atlanta. The Omni Hotel at CNN Center is expanding and has almost completed a skyscraper hotel connected to the CNN Center. I want to stay in that next time I visit! If you ask me, this was one of the coolest experiences!
