The hotel is very nice and has plenty of restaurants to eat in. The sports bar was good to hang out in and the rooms have flat screen televisions in them!
... and thus, did not have to contend with any commute traffic. The ride was surprisingly easy and we made good time getting to our campsite just south of Atlanta by dinner time. I wanted to watch the Niner game and the Emmys, so we picked a first class resort again. Kap did not do well for the Niners, but Andrew Luck, former Stanford player, was fantastic for the Colts, so all in all, it was a pretty good game. ...
We left our hotel in Atlanta and headed to the zoo. We have seen enough zoos but the kids were excited to visit this one because there was a baby rhino, gorilla, orangutan and pandas. It was drizzling when we got there and then started pouring. We were patient and got to see the baby gorilla and orangutan. We made it to Memphis as the sun was setting.
... that Martin Luther King Jr. would have taken his entire life, first as the son of the preacher, and then as the pastor at Ebenezer Baptist. After we left we all felt a bit drained but uplifted from the experience.
I should also mention that we visited the eternal flame and the grave site of Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King. This site is also along Auburn Avenue. This site is not to be missed if you are anywhere near Atlanta.
... doesn't help that public transport is so poor. Pretty productive at work today, got a lot signed off, and clients are enjoying the accent. Everyone also always seem to mention their own British heritage, and ask whether I like the Royal Family. Went to a mall after work - picked up some stuff for ...

Renaissance atlanta downtown
we just came back from a cheerleading compition we stayed at this hotel and we got great prices great deals great rooms and much more.
we'll that's all the talking i'm going to do i don't won't to spoil it for when you get there. That's all the time i have today i'm ashlyn johnson when you come back from the hotel you should write a review so other people can learn about this wonderful hotel.
I had the most comfortable time in this hotel; I almost didn't want to leave it!! The staff is extremely friendly, courteous, and cooperative. The hotel and rooms themselves are beautiful and very clean. I had a wonderful view of the city from my room. The hotel itself was very quiet, and I felt very safe staying there.
We stayed at the Renaissance Atlanta on New Year's Eve, for a wedding reception. Every staff member we encountered was outstanding. Self-park was easy and a pedestrian bridge connects the garage to the hotel. As I carried my bag back to the hotel, a valet parking attendant ran ahead of me to open two doors. Service in the bar and at the reception was great. The hotel was beautifully decorated. The reception was perfect. Rooms are big and have private balconies. Absolutely no negatives to mention about this fine hotel.
The reviews I read were not all that positive about this hotel, but I found it to be just right. It was centrally located for me (GA TECH/MIDTOWN) and I thought it was a very nice hotel. A previous review noted that the pool area was not that nice and I do agree. Nothing more than a pool surrounded by a concrete slab on the 3rd floor above the entrance. Rooms on the 4th floor offer a larger walkout balcony with chairs and a small table. The inroom refridgerator had seen better days, but I had no need for it anyways. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking is $10 in lot across the street, however, if you fly into Atlanta the MARTA station is literally across the street and the fare is only $1.75 to/from the airport and it only takes about 20 minutes (much quicker than Atlanta traffic). All in all, I was very pleased.
In general, the staff at the hotel is perhaps the best thing this hotel has to offer. I never waited long for requests including additional bedding, room service, valet. One nice touch is that they call immediately after to see if your request was honored in a timely manner. Staff was very friendly.
Excellent staff, nice lobby, ok rooms. Not close to much except Varsity (burger place) and Georgia Tech Mgmt school. MARTA across the street.
Lots of street noise from major highways right outside.
It's a value question - grab it if you can get a great deal, pass it by at the same rates everyone else charges.
I read some of the reviews posted here after I purchased five days at this hotel on Priceline at $99.00/night. I was very worried. Fear not!
Music Midtown hotel!
Ok, I stayed there last year for music midtown, and I had a blast. the people did make us wait a while to check in which was a pain in the ass, but the food is good, the restaurant has a fun atmosphere, and the rooms are nice. I had so much fun last year and the year before that we're oming back again this year. Music Midtown 2004! w00t w00t!
Terribly organized staff!
Worst hotel experience of my life. Could not check in until 6:15 PM as a result of a 'party' the night before. Charged for an dditional room I didn't reserve. Received over $75 misc. charges that I'm still trying to get removed!!!
Maybe for a little less
Noisy, food only OK and rooms in basic need of a makeover. Had this room been $75 per night cheaper, it would have been acceptable -- but the high room rates for these accomodations lack any value. You are within walking distance to the Fox Theatre and many mid-town restaurants and MATRA is literally across the street. Tough to recommend.
