“Good location for campus visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stayed here while taking our high school son on a campus visit to GTech. Good location right by campus. You could walk to campus if you wanted but it would take 5-10 minutes, you have to walk over the expressway, we did drive to the campus. Parking was not a problem. The hotel had a special rate for visiting students which was nice; ;the rooms were basic hotel rooms; clean and comfortable. No refrig. or microwave in rooms, the hotel has a bar and restaurant in the lobby. There is a Starbucks right across the street, we went there for b'fast. Overall we were happy with our stay.

Thank you recent feedback. We hope your son chose to attend Georgia Tech! The next time you are visiting, please try the Tech Trolley. It is complimentary for our hotel guests and takes you onto campus.

Booked a room for visiting Georgia Tech with my son. Very conveniently located to visit campus. You can walk on fifth st. right into campus, or take the Georgia Tech trolley. The trolley also takes you to the Marta station.

We were there for a 10am orientation session and tour of Georgia Tech. Requested a late checkout to be able to come back to the room and freshen up, but the agents at the desk could not accommodate a 1 hour delay in checkout. Would have received 4 starts if they had.

The AAA rate, as other visitors pointed out does not give you breakfast. We filled up at the Waffle House next door.

Plenty of decent restaurants in the midtown area that we did not have to venture into downtown for meals.

We planned an event with the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center and they were extremely accommodating. The staff was incredible and always went out of their way to help. The rooms looked great and the many guests staying there were very pleased. The location is perfect, with Tech Square, Georgia Tech, and Midtown right at the front door. The food was incredible. Overall an excellent experience and would recommend staying here to everyone.

Great campus and conference hotel, centrally located, but with conference and campus, noise will spill into the late night especially in the weekend. Near many restaurants. Staff was friendly (checked in around 1am)

Room Tip: Ask to stay away from the conference attendees particularly if they are young cheer group attending...

The front desk staff was very courteous and helpful. The staff was always willing to help and ensure all accommodations were met beyond expectations. I was also very impressed on how knowledgeable the staff was with the surrounding area especially on food selection. I would recommend having the breakfast buffet in the morning because it had so much selection for a great price of only $12.95.

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor are closest to the pool/spa and fitness center

My room seems to have just been renovated. Very clean and updated. Staff service and friendliness was exceptional. I was attending a workshop in the Conference Center and that was super convenient - just a walk down a long hallway. The break areas were very well stocked and staffed. Its just a super facility to hold a conference or workshop in.

My hairdryer broke while I was using it and they were very apologetic.

1. We arrived at 3:10 on Friday....Room was not available as check in is apparently at 4. No problem but the trainee was very terse--"You're room is not ready for check in." There was no instruction as to what to do with the car, where we could sit and wait, or what I could do with the two very tired little travelers with me. When I spoke with an older woman on the cleaning staff in the restroom and vented my frustrations, she was VERY sweet and showed me the pool room and computers the girls could use. Unfortunately, the camera crew working there refused to let the girls do either--each time they became engaged in an activity, they were told to MOVE by the crew.

2. We arrived to the room and there was a large amount of BLOOD on the sheets. (I have pics!) THere was also some kind of funk on the other bed that resembled ear wax. The floors in the hallway never seemed to be vacuumed. The head of housekeeping was very apologetic and cleaned the room again and replaced the sheets and brought the girls some snacks.

3. Day two we had to check into another room (shared one night and had our own the second). The older man checking us in was wonderful--very gracious and helpful. There seems to be some huge differences in the younger staff and the older staff. The older staff is gracious and welcoming. The younger staff is surly--no smiles, no graciousness, no hospitality, no service.

4. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. The service by the staff in the buffet was non-existent. On morning two, we actually sat for 20 minutes and no one came to give coffee or even say hi. When we got up to FIND them, they seemed annoyed. The staff in here seemed uninterested in their jobs, never smiled or acted polite or gracious. Some bordered on rude.

5. The room was HOT and didn't ever seem to cool off. There are no 'fridges in the room-you must request one, which I find very strange.

My overall review is that the younger staff seems to need training in the service industry. Don't scowl at the guests when they ask you for orange juice of water. WHen you leave one bottle of shampoo for two females and they ask you for extras, SIGHING with obvious frustration is NOT acceptable. But then again, the older staff seems to have their act together and did their best to make up for these things. The head of housekeeping and the older gentleman who helped us on day two--you did a great job. Suggestions -- train the young staff more, talk to housekeeping staff and have them do their jobs and treat guests politely if they need things. Get some fridges for the rooms. Paying a,most 200 bucks for a hotel warrants a fridge.

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We were very disappointed reading your comments and apologize for any discomfort you experienced. The particular weekend that you stayed with us was a very busy weekend and it appears our staff did not live up to our standards. We will review your comments with our managers and take a look at our training.

As to the photography, we held a photo shoot that weekend to showcase our recently completed $1.5 million room renovation. We apologize if the photographers inconvenienced you. Since we only update our photos for our website every few years, this should not be an inconvenience to you in the future.
