The Westin Peachtree Plaza
Travel Blogs from Atlanta
I can't even begin to guess how many times I've been to Atlanta. One of most memorable was the Mother's Day weekend in 1977 when Mom, Dad, Craig, Hal, Mike, Rick, Scott and me stayed at the Peachtree Plaza for the weekend and ate at Pitty Pat's Porch (I still have Scott's little black iron skillet his meal came in) and had brunch or something in …
It was time for us to make some time and head for St. Cloud, Florida, to see brother Tom, who is now home from the hospital and waiting for us. We looked at all the route possibilities from Asheville and saw that we could take Interstates 75, 85, or 95, but we needed to be on 75 at the end. We opted for a route that was a combination of 75 and 85 and headed south. We were happy that we drove around Atlanta on ...
We left our hotel in Atlanta and headed to the zoo. We have seen enough zoos but the kids were excited to visit this one because there was a baby rhino, gorilla, orangutan and pandas. It was drizzling when we got there and then started pouring. We were patient and got to see the baby gorilla and orangutan. We made it to Memphis as the sun was setting.
It is getting tougher to blog regularly. We did not have wifi at the Hilton because you had to pay for it and we were too cheap. We drove 6 hours on Thursday from Hilton Head but made good time and arrived in Atlanta at around 3 pm.
We drove straight the the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site. We spent about three hours here. I think the kids are starting to connect the dots in terms of the connection between the Civil War ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Peachtree Plaza Atlanta
Overbook and bumped - The Mysterious Mr. Smith
I arrived to find out that my reservation had been cancelled by a mysterious Mr. Smith at my travel agency, Rosenbluth travel. I then called Rosenbluth and found out my reservation was not cancelled and that they have no one there by th ename Mr. Smith. When I complained that there management all I received was a rude response. Obviously they overbooked and were concocting the mysterious Mr. Smith. Stay away from all Westin Hotels. They obviously have slaezy corporate practices.
Limited parking but nice hotel
Westin peachtree plaza is a nice hotel. I love the bed. the view is wonderful. All of the employee were available to make my stay pleasant.
I do not like having to pay for local calls. I have been to hotels that was not have as nice and there was not a charge for warter. There were no drink machines. Most hotel give a small breakfast free. This hotel cost a lot and give nothing to show that they are happy to have your business.
While this hotel has nice rooms and very comfortable beds, I will never stay at a Westin OR any other Starwood hotel again!
I made reservations for the Westin online about three weeks before my stay. After making the reservations, I proceeded to look around the net for reviews and more information about this hotel. I was a little cautious after reading about poor customer service as that is what can make or brek a hotel in my mind. We arrived at approximately 2:30 (check in is at 3), so it was fairly busy. Even with the large amount of guest, every hotel employee we encountered was efficient and friendly. I was happy to see that if there ever was a problem with customer service at this property, it has been resolved. As far as the accomodations offered, I was more than pleased with the heavenly bedding and the stunning view. The one thing that I would recommend is for the spa (which offers massages) also offer an in-room massage.
Nice Hotel . . .
Stayed here on business a few times. Really nice, clean hotel connected to an amazing fittness facitlity (I was told it is one of the top 5 rated in nation ($10 bucks extra per day)). My only complaint is that there is nothing within walking distance of the hotel . . . . other than that, cant' go wrong!
Best Hotel Ever!
My husband and I went to stay in the Westin for our very first vacation together and I must say that was the most excellent hotel we have even stayed in and we will continue to use this hotel when we vacation in Atlanta.
Customer service nightmare
I shared a room with someone that had a different departure time than me. After he checked out, they locked me out of my room until I paid the bill. I still had 3 hours until check out time and all of my personal items and clothing was still in my room.
Excellent Get away
I have never been to a more fantastic place. My husband and I stayed at the Westin Peachtree Plaza for business. The rooms were booked for us and we were just to arrive. I can't say enough about the hotel, the staff and the people in Atlanta. They sure know how to treat people. I am seriously considering planning a trip, just for pleasure of course, with our friends, to visit your great city. I am aware of other Westin Hotels since scanning the net. When planning a vacation, from now on I will be making reservations at a WESTIN HOTEL. I am still on a high from the great time we spent at the hotel and the city.
THANKS FOR THE HOSPITALITY
The Best Hotel in Atlanta
The Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta Ga is a truly wounderful hotel. From the view to the staff, every aspect of my stay there was enjoyable. First, the staff is knowledgable and polite. Next the rooms are a bit small, but the heavenly bed and shower, as well as the view are exquisite. Lastly, the restaurants are delicious and very well maintained.
Whuzzup with Westin?
Portland OR, Palo Alto CA, now Atlanta GA: three consecutive Westin stays in facilities that are sharply undermanaged, with inept staff and a sharply lower quality of
service. There are still some nice ones, but is Starwood pushing them
down the food chain? -- It wasn't so much the bad air conditioning or
the messup with the room key or the futzing around as it was that the desk staff and service staff on the phone just seemed clueless and unhelpful. THis in the middle
of the huge ALA conference that they bid for years in advance.
Ranking it a 3, but Westin should always be at least 4 and often 5.
