TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Westin Peachtree Plaza Atlanta
The staff were super friendly and helpful! The Sun Dial Restaurant was a great experience, and a must do to get a view of the city. This hotel is in a perfect position if you are conferencing at the GWCC, it is in walking distance and near the Centennial Olympic Park.

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.
Better off at a Holiday Inn!
While this hotel has nice rooms and very comfortable beds, I will never stay at a Westin OR any other Starwood hotel again!
First, you pay a nice chunk of change for a room. Well, that's not so bad, BUT, then they charge you $20 a day for parking and $3.00 for a 12 oz. can of Coke (from the mini bar, they don't have vending machines).
$3.00 FOR A 12 OZ CAN!!! Oh, and they told us it would be cheaper to buy the Coke from room service so we ordered a six-pack. Cheaper? NO!
It was still $3 per can! We paid $18 for a six-pack!!
To top this, I left a shirt in the closet. We called to have them send it to us. Oh, they'll send it to us...UPS C.O.D.!! This is 1 shirt, maybe $2-$3 to ship and they can't send it free?!?! It's cheaper than their cans of Coke!
Then they were going to charge us $4.00 per person to go to the lookout on the top floor. We had to tell them that we were staying in the hotel so they wouldn't charge us. They didn't bother to ask us and if we didn't know better we would have been charged $12 to ride an elevator and view Atlanta.
Besides the expense, their elevators and staff are unable to efficiently handle large amounts of guests. We waited 35 minutes for an elevator, and we were only on the 40th floor (72 floors total). Most times the wait was at least 10 minutes.
Now don't get me wrong, I have stayed in other 3 and 4 star hotels, but none of them were as bad as this hotel. It was simply not worth the money. Their pizza was also horrible!
The ONLY positve things about this hotel was the bed and it is a half a block from a MARTA train station.

New Westin Customers...
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.

... We watched the Dolphins and their trainers do all sorts of tricks. Unfortunately we couldn't take any photos their performances. Caught up with the gang after they had dinner. I didn't want to eat before big road trip. We went on the Ferris Wheel. The views of the city at night were fantastic. Photos didn't do it justice. We are leaving at 6am tomorrow to head for Orlando......8 hr drive. May stop off somewhere if we get tired! Off to ...
Finally able to do some washing before heading out to Downtown Atlanta. A woman's work is never done. Want to see some shopping malls......not that I want to buy anything as no room in the case, but just to sticky beak. Also will go to the Coca Cola Museum I think! Went to the Peachtree Mall. The hotel shuttle bus took me there. It was a disappointment! All there was was food shops......I'm so over food ...
Today was going to be a big day! Not only did we have our presentation to the stakeholders, but we were also going to get a chance to meet all the celebrities of BCD Travel, including Lori Popiolkowski, the SVP of the Global Project Management Organization (GPMO) and Deona Thayne, the VP of Global Shared Services, my executive sponsors and my future bosses.

Therefore, I walked down the street with three Australian guys that were also trying to hail a cab. We finally managed to get one but he was charging a fortune. The next one had a metre so I knew I'd get a fair price. I finally made it back to the hostel around 22:00. What a long ...
There is an old saying "When the Gods want to punish you, they answer your prayers". I wanted to get to that Farm. I thought I needed to get to that Farm. Some sort of destiny involved – the “new” direction to my life. And yet, it didn't happen and will not happen.
