So far so good. All flights are on time. We were able to see Liz's friend Hailey as she was changing planes in ATL as well as some other Crew parents on their way to CA for the National Championships. Row Hard CCR!!! Our next stop is JFK, New York, for a 3 hour layover before the flight to Dublin. The layovers are actually really okay as it allows ...
Overall, it has been a great week at the BCD Headquarters. The highlight of my day on Thursday was presenting our project to some of the BCD leadership. On Tuesday, we were given a project to create a tool that can be used to improve the travel management industry. This project was a group effort between Lindsay, Ana and myself. After thinking back at the past two weeks of our program, and everything we learned from the various travel professionals, we decided that a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Atlanta North at Perimeter
A Good Business Hotel
I've stayed at this hotel twice now on business. Although you'd have to be distinctly lacking in imagination to stay here for a personal trip, as a business hotel I've found it very satisfactory.
Very quiet room
Pleasant contemporary decor in rooms and public areas
Lovely staff who couldn't be more helpful and friendly
Very comfy bed.
Only one staff member at reception, which creates queues to check in and out
Quite small rooms, but not ridiculously so
Bathrooms could do with an refurb (but are still satisfactory).
I'd recommend it to my colleagues. Just be aware that it's in a business district, not in downtown Atlanta.
Not a four star hotel
We recently stayed at the Westin and had a dissapointing experience. While the bed was comfortable and the room clean, our room was quite small, the staff were less than helpful, and the room service was abysmal. We were also disturbed to find it impossible to walk from the elevator to the front door without encountering the smoke filled lounge area. We have stayed in other Westin hotels in the past and were expecting a much nicer stay. We will not return.
I agree with a previous writer that this hotel would like to think of itself as a first class facility. However, that is not what we experienced on our recent stay.
The Westin gives the illusion of being a first class hotel, but it was truly a second rate experience. We changed rooms twice -- first, we did not receive the king room we ordered. Then, we were placed in a handicap accessible room. The rooms were very small. There were no drawers, no dressers, few bathroom amenities. We could not move about the room without bumping into each other. The beds were equipped with lovely down bedding, but this did not make up for our cramped accommodations. The hotel does not have a vending machine; but there is a mini bar where you can purchase a coke for $4+ or a snickers bar for $6.50. We sent one pair of pants to the laundry - $9.75. We stopped for directions for dinner, and the concierge swayed us from our intended destination to a closer steak house. It turned out to be a very expensive a la carte restaurant. -- dinner for two $150+ (without drinks or dessert). My business meetings were conducted in the hotel and meals were catered. The food at the meetings was good. Unless the Westin can provide me with a more comfortable sleeping area, I will not stay at this hotel again.
Nice Enough Hotel, No Service
So I go to check in this hotel and there is no one behind the check-in counter. I call out, "Hello!" and stand there for 5 or 10 minutes like an idiot. Finally the bellman goes and points me out to the staff member, feet literally kicked up in the lounge of the hotel bar. She gets up in a hurry and marches over to the check-in counter. I had called ahead to secure a $30 suite upgrade. There was no upgrade of any sort at check-in, this despite the fact the hotel was close to empty. The room was small but tastefully decorated and the bed was comfortable. I had a poor view and didn't even get a preferred floor as a starwood preferred gold guest. Again, the facility is a four-star, well maintained and elegant one, but the staff gets a D.
Don't expect the Westin St. Francis at this location!
This hotel is tucked away in a corporate industrial park area. Bell staff was helpful with bags and parking is close and convenient. The rooms were small but well furnished with coffee maker, hair dryer, and comfortable beds. The remote location is no problem if you have a car because the Perimeter Mall is nearby and ample restaurants within a few miles. We enjoyed the Cheesecake Factory attached to the Mall. A Publix supermarket and Einstein Bagel shop is in a strip center a few miles from the hotel. The hotel restaurant had a limited menu. The waiter said, "we just buy our deserts somewhere, nothing is made here". Traffic is always congested near this location. If you do go out for dinner try and eat early because the restaurants build up waits of hours after 5:30 pm.
I stayed here for approximately 20 weeks over 2001 and 2002. During that time, I was accomodated as a Starwood Platinum member (upgrades to suites usually).
This hotel has nearly all the amenities one expects in a $100+ business hotel, plus a friendly, gracious staff. The reflecting pools surrounding the hotel provide a tranquil park-like setting. But the location in the middle of a corporate office park is problematic. It's fine for a venue for a self-contained business conference but probably is too far out on Atlanta's northern edge to be a practical base for tourists. Our conference attendees felt isolated from the center of town, about 10-15 miles away. Driving to downtown is a horrendous challenge with traffic jams; taxi trips are pricey and commuter rail is a bit cumbersome -- although the hotel offers free shuttles to the train station a mile away, there can be lengthy waits between trains at night. On the plus side, it's fairly close to Buckhead, a happening place for the junior executive set.
No extra charge for rooms next to elevator and coca cola
No extra charge for rooms next to elevator and coca cola machine on the highest floors.
They charge $4.50 for a quarter gallon water bottle.
One gallon of 92 octaine gasoline is $2.00
This is the best business model in America since
Coca Cola and CNN.
Sell your oil stocks buy Westin stocks.
If you do not mind loud elevator bells and Coca Cola machine refregerator sounds, the room is very comfortable and clean.
The view from window is spectacular.
The hotel is little isolated from the nearest shopping center and resturants which are not
within a walking distance.
