While the hotel's website conjures images of a swanky boutique hotel like a Kimpton, calm down. You're not paying for one, so don't expect one.
Now the Artmore is a fine hotel, and a reasonable value. It's located in Midtown along a reasonably busy street, across the intersection from the Arts MARTA station, a block away from a fancy (quite fancy) Thai restaurant, and basic pizza place, and about 10 blocks (and about 25 minute walk) north of Georgia Tech.
The hotel itself is a refurbished (maybe) guesthouse/hotel from the 1920's. There isn't a restaurant, just a bar that serves a limited menu of food. The halls are covered in dark modern carpet, but you can just feel the old uneven flooring underneath. I got a huge suite on the 3rd floor. Walk into a spacious room with closet, kitchenette with high cafe table and chairs, flat screen TV, and sitting area with sofabed. Then there are stairs up to the bedroom area, with slanted roof/ceiling I presume from being a converted attic area. The bedroom area is also spacious, with walk-in closet and small desk in the low ceiling area.
PROS: affordable room, VERY spacious, somewhat boutiquey
CONS: big kitchenette, but no plates or utensils other than 2 coffee mugs (maybe you need to request them); sofabed has seen better days, with poor sitting support; loft bedroom really just looks like a repurposed attic bedroom of an old house, and not really a boutique hotel bedroom. For example, the walk-in closet had that old wire shelving and rod with those headless hangers and non-removable rings clipped to a couple of sections (making 3/4 of the closet unusable), windows in the ceiling (inexpensive honeycomb shades) didn't open easily), and the bathroom was a tiny converted home bathroom with cramped slanted ceiling, single piece (plastic?) sink/vanity counter, peeling wallpaper, and shower with that cheap-looking gold finish glass door frame, and shower with peeling/chipped paint tile floor.
