... 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 ...
... were some hotels right behind the ball park, so we decided to try our luck, and after giving the receptionist at the Country Inn and Suites our best puppy dog eyes, she let us store our bags there for a few hours. Result!
Despite only having had a few hours sleep on the bus, we had a really good time at the game. It was the first one we have been to that wasn't cold or raining, and the Atlanta Braves won! Looks like our losing streak is over. Or maybe we just picked a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Residence Inn Atlanta Midtown / Historic
This hotel was great! I was impressed the minute I walked into the door. The lobby was clean, there was free Starbucks coffee and it was an easy check in. I was equally impressed with our room as it was also clean and very well decorated. We even had a balcony. There were three of us in the room and found it very accommodating and comfortable.
An Oasis in a steel jungle
Wife and I stayed here for 2 night in early July. This is a great hotel, with excellent staff, great breakfast, large suites, all the amenities of home, free HiSpd net and Starbucks coffee. It's an older hotel with great upkeep. Very small and quaint. We had a 4th floor room facing SW and there were trees outside the window. Didn't even feel like I was in the city. Room had a large balcony also.
Love this place!!!
Stayed 3 nights with husband and 14 year old. Stayed here a couple of years ago, and still love it. The staff were very friendly, Kenya was so helpful. Room was 1 bedroom suite and was very spacious. Again having 2 tvs with a teenager is a great thing. Had a balcony with a great view. Although first night we did hear a neighbors for a while. Parking is tight, but availabe. When possible we left car and took Midtown Marta, even to a Braves game. Breakfast was great for the Res, and we were able to eat and go back to the room. This hotel does not dissapoint me and will definately go back.
Great hotel, bad parking!
Gorgeous, new-looking rooms, very spacious and clean. Easy walk to some superb restaurants. Horrible parking lot - almost impossible to park a large car in the small spots, and very easy to get "trapped" by other cars. There is a nightclub next door and it seems that many people park in the unattended hotel lot.
Standouts include: A great location: just around the block from the Midtown Marta, a safe walk to the station. If you don't want to carry packages around, you can run up to the room and drop things off and get back on the MARTA without much extra effort. Midway between downtown attractions like the Aquarium and Centennial Park) and Lenox/Buckhead. Staff: helpful in every way. From a super early check-in (can you believe 7:30 a.m?) to accomodating my request for a late check out.
Absolutely Fantastic...a home run !!!!
Finest stay at a hotel that I have ever enjoyed. Wonderful property, attentive staff, fantastic breakfast, ideal location. This hotel showed me a charming side of Atlanta that I had not seen in over thirty years of visits to the city. Highly recommended, I cannot wait to return, absolutely first rate in every respect.
Really great rooms, good service
For a 4day business trip we booked this hotel.
Very friendly staff (but no help with the baggage), really very big suites with 2 tv. Clean and nice decorated, well working a/c.
Breakfast (for a European) ok but nothing special, but they have Starbucks coffee, so this is fine! Free water for drinking in the lobby. They have no pool but you can use the pool at Marriotts Suites just a few minutes to walk.
For runners: 7 minutes run to the Piedmont Park where you can run without any traffic. Nice!
Actually there are road works in front of the hotel but we didn't hear anything from them.
Whenever back in Atlanta, I'll come back to this hotel again!
Restaurant recommendation: South city kitchen
This hotel makes their guests feel very special !!!!
Small hotel with large rooms in a great location with a staff that makes each guest feel very special, like a VIP !!!
Included was a free breakfast and supper during the work week.
First time staying here but it won't be the last. Highly reccommended !!!
Ok, so its not the newest hotel in the area and there is an adult store next to the hotel - But it is close to the midtown bars (across the street from Blu/Wet Bar, short walk to backstreet & piedmont park), marta, and the sights. There is very limited parking at the hotel, so we snagged a spot and walked or took the marta everywhere.
The rooms are very large. We had a king bed bedroom, balcony, large living room/kitchen area, etc. Everything seemed to work (although the tub dripped and the hotel was having some hot water problems at the time). The staff was really nice. For the price, we would stay again.
HUGE rooms, good location.
Great hotel. The rooms are HUGE - we had a one bedroom. Full kitchen, big bathroom, room was not immaculate, but clean. Also had a huge balcony facing the Midtown skyscrapers. Excellent location close to all the action. The club Blu is about 2 blocks away, the area is hopping with activity. Also close to Backstreet, Vision, and all the bars on 10th Street near Piedmont Park. I would definitely stay here again.
Close to the Midtown MARTA stop too. We weren't supposed to check in until 3pm, but they had a room so we get in by noon - which was nice.
Staff was friendly, no complaints. Excellent value for the price.
