... that was to take us from to the airport (to avoid parking charges for the next 18 days.) Apparently the driver was unfamiliar with where we live, put a slightly wrong address in his GPS and was 20 minutes away when we needed to be heading to the airport. We drove ourselves, only to discover that Delta (bless her ...
... travel agency in Ohio, which became part of Worldtravel Partners (BCD's predecessor) in the 1990s. She has been with the company for nearly two decades. Her length of service with BCD is similar to that of many other employees. In fact, amongst the women at the table, all (save Catherine) have been working with BCD for more than 18 years. Not only is BCD good at retaining its clients (the rate is greater than 80%), it's also able to keep great ...
... 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.

Also for those that have not ever traveled internationally, it seems like they are constantly feeding you on that plane. I ate more on the airplane than I do in a normal day.
However, around 4:30pm Tokyo time, we landed!
... PA was made, by my husband…..due to the weather, there are no gates available & we would have to wait. We waited for a gate for over 2 hours! I was surprised that Jeff came back to visit me, but then again, there was nothing that could be done & we were all restless!
Going through customs was a breeze, so glad that I had signed up for Global Entry, there was no one in line! Once again I was waiting, Jeff had to get the car ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSheraton Atlanta Hotel
The room was big but bathroom supplies were not well equipped (the staff will give you if you ask) and the supplies looked cheap; not like other Sheraton Hotels I stayed before. The plus was everyone in the hotel was extremely friendly.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Atlanta Hotel
I have to admit, that after reading the previous reviews, I was a little nervous to stay here. However, I loved it! My boyfriend and I spent the weekend down there for Valentine's Day and we had a wonderful time. The hotel staff was just as nice as can be and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. I recommend the club level room with access to the club lounge. There are always snacks in the lounge, which came in handy when we couldn't get dinner reservations until 9:45 one night. As far as the area being unappealing, I thought ALL of downtown Atlanta was unappealing. It's a conveniet location, as we were able to walk to a lot, but there is no nice area in downtown.
Very nice and clean room. Nice hotel facility with free internet access for hotel guests in the lobby area. Friendly staff. Good 24-hour deli + nice restaurant. Good prices. Conveniently located bunch of other hotels (good for convention stay) and nice restaurants just up the street with a mall across the hotel!
As much as I travel to Atlanta, I must say, I love this property... even compared to the Westin Peachtree up the street.
While it may be more out of the way than other hotels, the EXTREMELY friendly staff and beautiful decor more than make up for it. The rooms are always clean and nicely appointed. The several restaurants on site always serve top notch cuisine, and the 24 hour deli is a definite plus. Prices are very reasonable as well.
I recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a great value in downtown Atlanta without the pretension of other hotels.
Good hotel, poor location
The hotel itself is fine, and the beds were the best we ever slept in. But it is in an unappealing area and we were accosted by several panhandlers when we walked to and from a nearby steakhouse just up the hill.
Nice hotel - bad location
My wife and I stayed here on the Hilton's dime since they overbooked our room. I would like to say that all the staff we interacted with were extremely helpful and friendly. As far as the hotel is concerned, the rooms were adequate but the location was horrible. Our room overlooked a bunch of dumpsters followed by the expressway. Final word - a nice place to stay for free but not somewhere you would want to take your wife on her anniversary regardless of price.
Great place to stay
my girlfriend and I stayed at the Sheraton Atlanta for the holiday and I must say I was very impressed. The rooms were nice enough and the staff was friendly and pleasant. Also, the hotel is conveniently located near several nice restaurants and local attractions. All in all it made for a very nice romantic getaway.
Check in and getting to my room was a long, strange experience. Part of the problem might have been that I arrived at the hotel well after midnight, and I was tired. There is no clear way to get from the parking garage to the hotel, short of walking out on the road -- the elevator in the garage just goes to other floors of the garage, where there is a lot of construction and rubble about.
Let me start with the hotel staff - they were all very nice and professional. I think they were great. As for the hotel location, it's very convenient to all the other hotels in case you're there for a conference or want to head somewhere on the MARTA rail, which is about 3-4 blocks away (uphill).The rooms are decent, acceptable cleanliness.
6/18/03: We just returned from the Sheraton Atlanta. We were only there for 3 days, but I enjoyed it for the following reasons: The pool is very attractive and relaxing; our room was a suite and quite homey, the staff were accomodating, and the maid service was excellent. Also, the Sheraton is located within easy walking distance to CNN studio ( worthwhile visit for only $8.00), Congress Center, restaurants. (Wear good walking shoes, Atlanta is hilly). We actually ate at Fandangles one night in the Sheraton and had a very enjoyable dinner; wonderful and friendly bartenders; patient; and pleasant. RE: downtown Atlanta: heavy police presence suggested you might not want to walk alone at night. Walking during the day was very safe at least on International Blvd. Didn't walk anywhere else. If you go, you should try one of the bus tours to see more of the city. I took the Grayline all day tour and it was well worth the money. Had an excellent driver (Herbert), and saw quite a bit. All in all, had a good experience at the Sheraton Atlanta hotel.
We were not gven proper directions as to how to get to our room then had to to take a small smelly service elevator to the room, Jillian the desk clerk, was very nice stated if your not happy we're not happy, We were kept awake all night by other noisy guests, and finally at 3:30Am called for security who never came we never slept and left as early as possible to stay with a friend so we could get some rest as we had a 7 hour travel time. We did spend 2 more nights in Atlanta. But we also advised the party we were with that we would never stay at the Sheraton again the desk clerk in the morning offered us breakfast, but we did not feel that was appropriate compensation, and did not acccept, since our friends said we could come to their hotel and get some rest.
