Very Nice Hotel
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.
The only con was that there was hardly any food left when we went down for breakfast at 9:30am on Saturday morning (breakfast is served until 10:00). There was no waffle mix, no eggs, no sausage, dried up grits and only one small milk carton left for cereal. When we asked for more, we were told that they were no longer putting out food (even though there was ½ hour left in for breakfast). After about 7 of us complained, they broke down and brought our more food. It was pretty rude.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel.
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.
Convenient and Pleasant!
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.
The room itself was OK, clean but not too many surprises. I think the plush carpet was the best part of the room. Far better value than paying for the convenience (if you are at a convention at the GWCC) of being downtown. So nice to not have to deal with the hyperagressive panhandlers. Enjoyed my stay, I'd definitely stay again.
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.

While listening to my most favorite song at the moment (Turtle, by Alana Davis), I've realized my trip has BEGUN!!!! It wasn't real until now. I'm sitting at my seat on my way to JFK airport, waiting for my dinner, and I don't really have much to say except that my excitement is finally here. No worrying, no doubting, just excitement. That's all for now. Sorry if you found this post boring, but sometimes you just gotta gloat. Love you ...
... Vice President of the Global Project Management team and Deona Thayne, the Vice President, are two great personalities that I have spoken to in the past. They are about to be my mentors as I finish this program and dive into my traineeship. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t nervous but at the same time, I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t breaking into another happy dance because guess what, I am meeting them ...
... I last sore Linda well over 30 years or more. We had a great evening, great food and it was a shame we could not of stayed longer but we had already made plans to in North Carolina.
We arrived in Atlanta and decided to try to make our way into town to register. This was not my idea. Jym was adamant that we do it because he feared Friday would be a nightmare. So we unloaded the luggage at Shane's and made our way to MARTA. A kind MARTA employee told us about this fabulous 4 day pass which allows you unlimited rides so we bought that. It was $19 which is cheaper than 4 days of 1 roundtrip …a roundtrip ...
... that we will be doing here for a few hours. Once the work day was over, we had the opportunity to go out to dinner with Chicka Elloy, who is the Global Programs Manager, Learning and Development, Jay Rhodes, Senior Director, Learning and Development, and Christian Dahl, Senior Vice President Talent Management and Global Human Resources. We talked in detail more about the program and enjoyed a delicious dinner.
