My wife and I stayed here in July during a four-day house hunting trip focusing on neighborhoods in Decatur and on Atlanta's east side. The hotel is super convenient to the best that Decatur has to offer, and most of it is within walking distance at the courthouse square. Parking is "free," and the MARTA station is just a couple...

We stayed here one night when visiting Emory University for an undergraduate admissions tour and information session. We would highly recommend this comfortable hotel to any others who are looking for a place near Emory University, which is only about a 8 or 9 minute drive away. The hotel felt a little more "upscale" than most Courtyards, thanks in part... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights. It was very quiet and clean. Comfortable bed helped me to get a good night's sleep. Check in/out was quick and easy. Since I was in the area for work I didn't get a chance to see much of the area but Ted's Montana grill was good for dinner.

This was our second stay here. It's a very nice hotel but very pricy for what you get - which is basically a great location two blocks from the Decatur square. The facilities are wonderful (including the workout room) and parking was not a problem. Would we come back? Perhaps.

Location in Decatur was excellent - 2 blocks from a square with restaurants and shops. Hotel has spacious lobby with large business center in area away from lobby activity. A cafe in the lobby has an extensive menu. Service was outstanding. Roger Allen was friendly and very helpful with information and directions. We will stay there again when we are... More

Stayed here during mid June and was pleasantly surprised. Would definitely stay here again! The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. Also the location was not too far out of the city. Only stayed one night but the amenities we're great. Didn't expect this hotel to be as good as it was

Nothing's perfect but this place comes close! I stayed for four nights while attending a conference and am hard pressed to think of a place where I was more comfortable, treated better, or was staying somewhere as close to so much great food and fun shopping. I would come back in a heartbeat! PS. The staff here, every single one,... More

We travelled to Decatur for a wedding and stayed two nights at this hotel. It is located 0.3 miles from a MARTA station (mass transit) so we were able to get there from the Atlanta airport without a taxi or rental car. Hotel is conveniently located to shops, pubs and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were... More

Perfect place to be near the square in Decatur. Staff is first rate and rooms top quality. I had a problem with central reservations and Mike, the General Manager, picked up on that and initiated an email with the fix. We will be back!
