At full price it's a 3 for a regular person. I have a REALLY cheap corporate rate and got some nice freebies since I'm platinum so I'll give it a 4 for my experience.
The room was very clean, the TV worked nicely, there were feather pillows, and there was a channel guide. So, I would stay here again. For a tourist it's attached to the Lenox Square Mall and right across the street from Marta which is awesome. I have Platinum Status so I got to go to the concierge lounge which is really nice here compared to some other properties. The paid internet at $16.95/day is faster than my internet at home. The gym was really nice but I had to switch treadmills since one is off a little. The daytime front desk person was crazy friendly. The night time didn't seem as friendly but really was super helpful in securing me a dental kit from who knows where since the shop was out of toothpaste. The six elevators are pretty speedy for any size property especially one this big.
The entrance and signage was a bit difficult for a self-parking person unfamiliar with the area. The lobby was nice but the layout was atypical. The double bed is small. They are not for sharing. If I had to share the double bed with my wife I wouldn't have slept. Your kids can share it. On the 22nd floor my Verizon work phone had trouble keeping calls after 2pm. A LOT of dropped calls. My Tmobile personal phone didn't at night but did during the day. The water pressure is low up here, too. There is light that shines in around the door. There is also poor sound-proofing for the door to the hall. The walls were great, though.
I guess some people really like Buckhead. Maybe walking from the self-park up that flight of stairs made me miss something. It's not worth $389 + tax, parking, and internet to me which was the rack rate. The Marriott across the street with the Shula's in it is pretty comparable and usually priced lower for both parking and room rates.
I would stay here again but not at rack rate.
