Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel

... with one more long day on the road.
I just went back through some of our photos to see that quote from Lao Tzu, "A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." Now one month away from home with thousands of miles traveled, I longed for not being on the road. Although I never had a bad night's sleep or a back ache, I longed for my own bed. Although I've enjoyed the privileged of this adventure, I longed for home. One more day.
... strange. And the mall was massive. Before going in we ate at Johnny rockets. We had a really lovely burger and it was a traditional American fast food style bar. When we saw the movie I have never seen such a fancy screen in my life. The chairs were like red leather sofas and the seats really reclined. The movie, guardians of the galaxy was really funny. We would defo see it ...
... really interesting. We skipped meeting the bear. It kind of looked scary. We then went into the 4d cinema which gave us the secret of coke. It was cheesey and the chair hurt my back but it was ok. And walked around a pop art gallery were we got to make our own bottle of open art. It was fun! We then tasted it which was too awesome! We tried over 60 different drinks from across the globe! Awesome. We also got a free bottle of coke at the end of the day to take home. Wow. Good final ...
This morning we were able to sit down with Jem Bennett, Senior Director, Supplier Relations at BCD Travel and Jeff Blaszyk, Senior Finance Director with Supplier Relations. It was a very beneficial meeting of them telling us about what it means to be in supplier relations at BCD. I had so many questions about all of the processes that this department goes through. It was interesting to learn about this area, and all of the work it entails.
... Hotlanta. He making it up is a testimony to his commitment to meeting me at every city – love you Jay!! We shared dinner with fellow displaced travelers and the cooking allergic. Followed by a couple of drinks at one of Atlanta’s trendy bars topped off, unintentionally, at a lesbian club. The Lesbian experience was very different from those I had in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel
Wonderful airport hotel
We stayed here before and after our trip to Mexico after booking through Priceline.com.
The staff at this hotel went out of their way to help you. There were 5 of us in the room and they brought a roll-away bed quickly and with no questions.
The rooms are large, very clean, and the bathroom very well stocked with needed toiletries, coffee, etc.
You do have to pay $6.00/day to park, but we left our vehicle there while we were in Mexico. No problems whatsoever.
The shuttle drivers were always prompt and very courteous.
We didn't eat there so we cannot comment on food.
They do have indoor & outdoor pool w/ hot tub.
The hottub was VERY hot so we didn't use it either.
Great hotel. Great stay.
Would definitely do it again.
I booked on priceline, not knowing what to expect. The room was very big, with a balcony overlooking the runways and very very nice. Staff was nice and the Red Velvet Cake from room service was killer
Good, but not like it used to be
The little touches disappeared when Stouffer relinquished ownership of this property. No more flight kits for the kids.
But this is still a very nice hotel. Number one anywhere for watching planes.
I stayed at this hotel on 2 Sat. nights on my way going to Curacao and returning from Curacao. The hotel was very nice. The shuttle service from the airport ran every 15 minutes. The check-in was very quick - about 5 minutes. The lobby was beautiful and the rooms were very beautiful and included coffee maker, refrigerators and iron and iron board. The view was either of the city or the airport and I stayed once on the city side and once on the airport side and could not hear any noise from the airport. I ate at the bar one night and the food was good and also worked out at the gym which was nice for a hotel gym. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Good place for a convention
Went to a convention that was in the banquet level of this hotel. The hotel is mainly set up to cater to conventions: tons of conference rooms, and accommodating staff. There were approximately 6 other conventions going on at the same time as the one I went to. Every person at this hotel, with the exception of the person at the checkout desk, went above and beyond on friendliness and service. Hotel is older, but they have kept it up in most aspects. Nice late breakfast buffet on the weekends. Good amenities in the room (bath & body works toiletries, tea, coffee). I wasn't keen on the green art deco theme of the room, but I guess that is just a preference thing. Prices in the restaurant are outrageous, but the food is very good and service is outstanding. Shuttle to airport was convenient and saved us from having to get a rental car. The view on the airport side of the hotel looked nice, however they would only put us on the other side of the hotel, which looked out on a rather uninspiring parking lot.
Fresh decor and friendly staff
This is my second stay at the Renaissance Atlanta Hotel - Concourse and it was great both times. The rooms seem to have been newly painted since my last visit in May and all of the decor looks fresh and new. My room was also ready at noon to my delight! Both the lunch and breakfast buffet were good and fairly priced, and the dinner menu was excellent. The staff from the doorman to the shuttle driver was friendly and helpful. I will be delighted to stay here again.
Nice Hotel - Great Location
I stayed here in October 2002 for one nite. My room was huge with a king sized bed and a sitting area with sofa and chairs. The bathroom was well-stocked with Bath & Body works products. Lemongrass mmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Convenient airport shuttle times. Couldn't beat the location for the price.
I have done quite abit of pleasure traveling and I have found this hotel to be one of my favorites. No it's not the Ritz Carlton , but it is a beautiful hotel with very fair rates. I always look forward to my stay there.
I probably would chose a different hotel next time.
I had to stay here for a training in Dec 02. The room was run down. The carpet had several huge stains and the wood furniture was worn. I ordered room service for dinner and was charged twice for the meal. They did take the extra charge off my bill when I brought it to their attention. All in all I would try a different hotel on my next visit.
Solid airport hotel
The Renaissance Concourse is a fine airport-area hotel with a beautiful atrium lobby and lots of skylit public areas. The rooms are very large and bright, although on a recent visit (june 2002) the carpet was kind of worn and overall the room could have used some maintenance.
Bathrooms (typical of Renaissance properties) are huge with Bath and Body Works toiletries. Wood furniture was nice, but again could use some updating.
Half the hotel rooms hover directly over ATL's runways, so if you're an aviation fan, it doesn't get any better. Views of takeoffs and landings are spectacular. Soundproofing is quite adequate.
THe staff is friendly and helpful. THey'll shuttle you to restaurants in the pedestrian-unfriendly airport area (Although your dining choices are severely limited - the Atlanta airport area sucks). Room service and the hotel restaurant are better than average.
