... 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 ...

Most importantly, Chicka is the manager of BCD's Global Leadership Development programme and so is responsible for every aspect of my internship, as well as BCD's ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Atlanta Buckhead
Tal como esperábamos
Escogimos este hotel como base para hacer una parada en Atlanta donde queríamos realizar algunas compras. Es perfecto para este propósito, las habitaciones son de buen tamaño y están limpias. El hotel facilita un servicio de transporte a las tiendas que es excelente. Llegamos a las seis de la mañana y pudimos hacer el ingreso sin ningún retraso y también nos informaron del desayuno complementario que había. ¡Es un buen hotel para ir de compras en un viaje corto!
We chose this hotel as a base for a stopover in altanta where we wanted to do some shopping. It is perfect for this purpose, the rooms are a good size and clean. The hotel provides a shuttle service to the shops which is excellent. We arrived at 6am and were able to check in with no delay and were also advised of the complimentary breakfast. It is a good hotel for a short shopping trip!
Great hotel, so-so location
We stayed at the Springhill Suites for 2 nights in June 2006. It was a wonderful room, clean and large. The morning breakfast buffet was great, and the pool was warm and clean. There were a few problems, but nothing major.
First off, only valet parking is available. My husband hates that, but you can not self park. The location was great for getting into Atlanta quickly, but not so great for walking around Buckhead. The hotel is off a VERY busy street and in a commercial area. The only place to eat in walking distance is Mexican across the street. (It was pretty good, though).
The front desk was not helpful at all with suggestions, but a kind stranger told us about a free shuttle that stopped right outside the hotel and went all around Buckhead. This is how we ate dinner. What a shame the valet or the front desk couldn't mention this to us. When I asked about places to eat, the desk clerk shrugged and that was that. They can check you in and out, but don't expect anything else.
All in all, a modern, clean place to stay, but it does not cater to vacationers. All the business people having breakfast seemed happy as larks. I think we were the only family there that week day.
Some suites are sweet
There are some suites that are sweet and the Buckhead, Atlanta SpringHill Suites Hotel fits that bill. We stayed in a King Suite that was exactly what I was hoping for. It had a kitchenette with sink, microwave, and refridgerator; a sitting area, desk with internet access free, a large king bed that was very comfortable with excellent lighting, and a large bathroom.
The view is not very good, but Buckhead is under construction currently as a few different towers are going up in the area. However, this wasn't really a big deal as we weren't in the hotel much during the day. Also, the windows actually open, which is a very pleasant surprise and helps to prevent that awful close-air feeling that some hotel rooms get.
There is a nice pool and jacuzzi with an attached exercise room. This was clean and very welcome.
The service staff (e.g. parking attendants, front desk staff, and cleaning staff) were all very friendly and helpful regarding restaurants and directions to places in the area.
While not exactly a resort hotel (obviously) it is a fabulous place to stay for a few nights to experience the area. There are a ton of excellent restaurants within blocks of the hotel and all are very easy to get to.
My husband and I live about 45 minutes from Atlanta. We stayed at this hotel for our anniversary retreat. This hotel was very nice. The staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. I would stay again!
We just got back from staying at the Golden Ente in Salzburg. We checked in with Ulrike who was great. She was so helpful and obviously loves her job. Anything we wanted or needed she was there to help with. Breakfast very good. Location perfect--near everything and on the pedestrian street. My sister, niece and I rented the apartment which was quite large and even 1 1/2 bathrooms. We Loved it! Very clean. Will always stay at Golden Ente from now on.
Great for a family of 5
Just got back from 4 night stay here with our three kids. We loved it. They loved the swimming pool - free breakfast daily - we slept comfortably (2 double beds and a large pull out couch.) You have refrigerator, micowave. Walking distance to grocery store. And staff is really friendly. we would definitely go back there for a family stay.
Great experience -- will return
Spent two nights at the SpringHill Suites Buckhead March 24-26, 2006. Almost everything about the stay was excellent and I will be returning.
Checked in immediately with no problems. Had a large room exactly as reserved with two queen beds and a sofa bed. Free wireless internet was a big plus. Beds were very comfy (new Marriott Revive bedding) and the room was pre-stocked with linens for the sofa bed. In room mini-bar with fridge, sink and microwave was also a nice thing to have. Overall the room was perfect -- very clean, comfortable and new.
Also can't say enough about the location: two minutes to Lenox and Phipps malls for shopping, tons of great restaurants, easy access to MARTA, etc. You will not be disappointed by the hotel's location. There is also a nice mini-mart in the lobby selling drinks and some food which we used a lot. Wasn't even that overpriced.
Staff were very friendly. Called and checked on the room a few minutes after we arrived. Said hello everytime we walked in and out of the hotel. Took off a movie charge from our bill for a bad movie.
Only drawback to this hotel was the parking situation. This is Atlanta -- everyone drives -- so the 15dollar valet charge was a little much when there are huge parking decks everywhere. Furthermore, they would make you leave your keys and move your car even if you were just going in the hotel to grab something from your room. The valets were actually kind of rude about it (no big tips from me!). Other than that minor parking issue, this hotel is absolutely perfect.
Forget the Ritz down the street - stay here for a third of the price and a room that's twice as big.
I travel a lot for business and I think I will start staying at Springhill Suites more often. This hotel was really nice. I booked a suite with a jacuzzi (which was smack in the middle of the room) for just $199 a night. Breakfast is always free. The rooms are new, clean and modern. Parking is $15. Very nice hotel!
Brand new hotel - Great in almost every way!
I used to be a hotel snob, and preferred to only stay at hotels that were full service 24 hours a day, such as the Four Seasons, Renaissance, Westin, Hyatt and Wyndham. As I get older (I am currently 33), I prefer hotels exactly like this hotel! It was very easy to come and go, it was reasonably priced, the staff was very attentive, the room was perfect and the location was awesome! The only things that were not perfect was the fact that the parking is $15.00 per night (a little steep for a hotel like this) and the fact that there are three elevators, but you have to wait a long time for one to come.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, whether it is a family, a couple (gay or straight) or a single person on business or pleasure.
