In Atlanta for a meeting, the W was an option listed for the group. Having stayed at many Ws in other cities, it seemed like a good bet. Once one gets past the fact that downtown Atlanta might be one of the least friendly and interesting downtown metro areas known to man, and that there is ABSOLUTELY nothing of significant interest except for a few sites (World of Coca Cola, the Aquarium, Olympic Park, Phillips Arena, and the Convention Center are all within walking distance), its ok.

As long as the guest rolls with those punches, a sensory experience is highly likely and great W design is pervasive.
For a quieter experience, ask for a room away from the elevators and the bar and pool levels. Becau...
