“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Everything you'd expect from a W. Very modern. Love the look and feel of this one. In a good location of Atlanta, easily accessible to everything. Not as quite a party feel as the Midtown location however.

The hotel was super trendy, very modern but the party crowd on the weekends were annoying. Food was good...but the drivers for the complimentary Acids service Frank and Tarrel were the best. Nice, funny, super helpful and polite. In loved the service and the personalization! All the staff was on point....but don't try and ship anything its not happening.

Booked the wow suite. Huge room. Well appointed. Nice touches throughout. Great view. Valet parking. Had a great time. This is not a family hotel. The restaurant on site was great and their bar was ok.

Really a great location when you are in ATL for Market. The W is walking distance to the Market and they have a Hotel car as well to shuttle you if need. The Staff is amazing and truly went above and beyond to make this a comfortable place to stay. The bar is a great place to hang after a work day with friends or Clients. In the Morning coffee is great and wonderful Lolita is there with smile on her face and always a "Good Morning and how are you!?"

Room Tip: ask for upgrade to corner rooms....they are so worth it and the cost.

Stayed here with my wife and 16 year old son for the weekend to catch the Braves game. From check in to check out, we had a wonderful time. The staff always greets you, the front desk was awesome, especially, Yvette. She took the time to help us out and went above and beyond, helping us plan our day, print tickets and gave us great advise. The pool has an incredible view of the city and the workout room was also state of the art.
The room had the most comfortable bed I have slept in and a nice view of downtown Atlanta with ceiling to floor windows. Love this place and would highly recommend. It is really not suited for kids, but our 16 year old loved it.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor if you can, so you have the great view.

Wife and I stayed here for our 4th of July vacation. Even though we booked a non-refundable rate early on SPG, the GM honored the new lower promotional rate we accidentally encountered via email. I was blown away by his generosity and the so called "Southern Hospitality." It made a positive impact on our trip right from the start.

The Hotel is located at the heart of downtown Atlanta. We bought a 4-day unlimited Marta Breeze card from the airport and the hotel was a quick 20-minute train ride from ATL to Civic Center and a quick 5-minute walk. The gentleman at the front desk was extremely helpful and the check-in process was painless. He informed us on the Green Choice program with 500 extra Starpoints per-night which we partake.

Our room was wonderful with a comfortable bed and a fully equipped bathroom. Although there was no tub, but the shower suffice our needs. The design of the room was modern without jeopardizing comfort. We especially enjoyed the small touches such as complimentary earplugs and extra toilet papers being in a nicely designed bag labeled "The Backup Plan." The Bliss branded amenities were a plus and the lemon sage scent left a refreshing feeling after wash.

From the hotel the 3 anchor triangle attractions (CNN, Coca-Cola, and Georgia Aquarium) are all within walking distance or when we were lazy, we hopped onto the convenient Marta and all the attractions were just a few stops away. We bought the Atlanta Pass at the CNN Center, which saved so much time from the holiday crowd. We didn't have to wait in-line in any of the attractions which gave us ample time for our romantic dinner at the fantastic BLT steak house in the hotel.

From the hotel via Marta we also had lunch at the Top Chef Richard Blais' restaurant called The Spence, visited the High Museum, dined at Mary Mac's Tea house, visited Fox theater, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, dined at Southern City Kitchen in Midtown, visited Georgia Tech's campus, The Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center and Piedmont Park...etc.

Being an SPG member, we couldn't ask for a hotel with better location, better amenities and better service. We will definitely be back to this hotel whenever we are in town.

Thank you for this great review - sounds like you had a wonderful W experience. I certainly appreciate your comments regarding the design of the hotel and our fabulous talent. I’m glad you enjoyed the bliss amenities and found your guestroom to be spacious and the bed comfortable. We couldn’t agree more with you about our central downtown location. We love it! We also love hearing that a guest had such an enjoyable experience that they will return again whenever their travels bring them back to Atlanta. Come back and see us anytime!

My wife and I recently stayed her to celebrate our anniversary. We had a nice, modern room with a beautiful view of the Atlanta skyline and an amazing shower. The bed had one of the most comfortable pillows I've ever put my head on. They even surprised us with two complimentary glasses of champagne! We also very much enjoyed their room service and wished we had more time to enjoy the impressive gym and pool/wet bar at the top of the hotel.

You have to pay for what you get, but it was an awesome experience and a memorable anniversary. Valet parking is a bit chaotic and organized, but once you're in the hotel, it really is whatever/whenever!
