We stayed in the Hotel Atwater for our 10th Anniversary. It was a very cozy room, but a little shy on amenities. The bathroom was in disrepair and I had to fix the toilet several times (It wouldn't flush) The shower also tended to seep water into the sink area. No biggie, but don't expect superb conditions. The water pressure was good, as was the temperature. The A/C in the room was a great thing too. Although it was a little noisy and left the room smelling a little musty.
The location is really good. Easy walking distance to food and entertainment, but far enough away from the main strip that you actually catch some Zs if you want to.
I can't say enough good things about the staff. The staff, both day and night shifts, were extremely helpful and very attentive. They were able to help us out on a number of things, ranging from tour arrangements to recommendations. The hotel is affiliated with Discover tours and are able to print your tickets for you if you get one of package deals.
One a final note:
One of really great things this hotel did for us was hold our luggage for us on our last day. The ferry leaves in the late afternoon, so we had time to burn. The hotel held our luggage for us while we did some last day exploring. This was great.
