Travel Blogs from Atlanta
The Delta Club Room on concourse F looks about like all the other Club Rooms around the country. But it is surprisingly empty. Guess few people are heading out on international flights on a Friday night. We figure that the trip will go very smoothly from now on. Our snafus were all front-loaded, starting with the ...
... management has changed over the last 20 years, let alone the last decade. Catherine, for example, noted how "millennial" companies (i.e. clients with younger, mobile and tech-savvy staff) generally have a "millennial" attitude when it comes to their dealings with BCD. These companies generally ask for an increased autonomy when it comes to travel arranging. Other clients, by contrast, are quite adamant that they require direct access to agents ...
... all, a very hectic month ahead. But as I discussed in my previous post, this time will certainly help me understand what BCD travel is all about. My bullet points only tell you where I'll be going. They don't show the depth and breadth of my exposure to the company. In order to find out about that (and more) you'll just need to keep reading this blog! For now, I'll just wish you good night from Atlanta, where this extraordinary experience begins.
... the metro on our way to Hotel Phaedra.
Hotel Phaedra is located within walking distance of the Acropolis!! I will literally be crying the whole trip due to the overwhelming amount of beautiful and old architecture I'll be seeing. The Parthenon will probably render me incapable of normal breathing for at least 2 hours, minimum.
As for now, I'm counting down the minutes until I land.
Ciao and αντίο,
... cool bars and had a good burger in "Leon's". Went back to Ashlie's and watched the UGA v LSU game with her flat mates bf. UGA won in extra time which was pretty good! Went out in Buckhead with K Hop for her birthday, went to a bar/club called Ivy. Pretty busy bar, had a good laugh with her ...

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.
