Our stay here was for two nights...1 of them free b/c my son in law had a free night with his points. Our party consisted of me, my daughter and son in law and their two small children ages 2 1/2 & 7 months.
We were there for the America's Got Talent auditions. We couldn't decide on this hotel or the Hampton Inn and had a reservation at both prior too. Actually we had a reservation at Days Inn also but after reading the reviews on here about it, canceled it quickly.
This was the first time I had stayed at a Hyatt Place but my daughter and son in law had actually stayed at this hotel before. We were so glad we chose to stay at Hyatt Place because it wasn't just a hotel room. With small children you really need more space. And although these rooms weren't huge or anything, it still worked out great.
I slept on the sofa which wasn't too bad and it was petitioned off from the beds. It was not a pull out sofa but an L shaped sofa and had like an ottoman too so gave more room. In addition to the vanity area near the bathroom, there was also a big mirror and counter space in another area which worked out well while we got ready so we weren't so crowded. No sink there but still was a nice area. It's were the coffee pot and refrigerator were. Also it's important to me to not have the sink/vanity area in the same room as the toilet/shower, therefore making it easier to get ready while someone else showers. Had that. I might add that we had a pack n play for the baby that they had for no charge which worked out great! We actually had one packed and ready to bring but we had SO much stuff, so we called and they said they had one, so it freed up some space in our van which helped tremendously!
Even though it was nothing fancy, I loved the shower. Curved shower rod, good pressure and enough hot water for all of us, and there was a ledge with a window to put your shampoo's, etc and it didn't get all wet. Loved that! And...I LOVED the towels!! Again nothing fancy or luxurious, but VERY soft. Lighting was good too! May sound crazy, but these are all things that are important to me when staying at a hotel. And things that I look for in reviews as well.
The complimentary breakfast was good (if you like continental style), but hey it was free so that is a plus and a decision maker when choosing a hotel. They had fruit, yogurt, cereal, bread, oatmeal packets, english muffin (with a toaster), pastries, juices, milk, GOOD coffee and it was hot and that's important to me too. Not sure what else they offered, but a pretty good selection. I think they served til 10am and took it right up at that time. They also offer deli type food in another area but it is not free.
The only thing that I would say is a con here is the parking fee of $22 per night. It is underground and there is security camera. But in DT area's I know this is common and all the DT hotels had a charge. Some more, some less. You didn't have to pay it if you didn't want to, but then you had to find parking somewhere else, streets, etc and not being familiar with the area we chose to pay.
We were able to walk to America's Mart which is where our event was held. When choosing a hotel we took that into consideration (how far it was). It was approx 3 blocks or so, but didn't realize it was hilly. Was pushing a double stroller up the hills and it gave us a good workout! We also walked to Hard Rock that evening to eat and it was a little closer. Not that it matters but the weather that weekend, in Feb mind you, was AWESOME! GOD provided us with bountiful sunshine, light winds and temps in the 70's. It was great! A few days prior I had been watching the weather and it was calling for some rain, so we were thrilled!
On Sunday after we checked out, we drove over to the Aquarium. This place is awesome and a must to see while in Atlanta. And it was just a few blocks from the hotel.
This hotel does offer a shuttle to anywhere within I think a 3 mile radius. But we wasn't sure about using it because the kids wouldn't have their car seats. Although ee did wind up using it once after our auditions because it was late and had gotten a lot cooler after the sun went down and we didn't have jackets for the kids. We just prayed we didn't have an accident...and we didn't! We called the number they gave us for their shuttle driver (actually it was a passenger van) and he said it would take about 15 to 20 mins. We were SO tired from being there all day (10 hrs with two small kids), but then he called me back in about 10 mins and said he was there so it worked out well. Thank GOD for that shuttle.
Anyways...I'm sure I have left off some things, but over all I would recommend this hotel if your in the DT area of Atlanta. It was clean, safe, comfortable, large flat screen TV, the staff was friendly, good location, All good. I'm sure you will enjoy.
