Older property, updated, was beautiful when built.
Update getting a bit stale, but I normally stay in 4-5 star properties so my review could be a bit harsh.
The rooms have not shrunk in size. They are still great.
Do not, repeat, do not, try to sleep in the front room sofa bed if you are over 15! Hard and lumpy best describes it.
But the breakfast...fun and good. The guys in charge put on quite a show. Make yourself have one of the omelets. Pick your ingredients. They will do the rest. Best included breakfast I have had (except for the Plaza in NY and that is not a fair comparison).
Valet service for the car was excellent. Just call ahead from the room.
Housekeeping was very late. If you leave your room for a couple of hours call the front desk and demand that your room be made up by a certain time if this is important to you. If you do not make the request, 3 or 4pm will be the time they show up.
We had a premium corner room (1425). I did have an objection to the smell of the room, bride did not. But then again, she puts up with me.
When we checked in a manager told us that they had overbooked the room that we had reserved and since we were only two they had changed our reservation. I am a quite experienced traveler ( comes with age) and one look changed it back. Not a big deal, but i like to save that look for special occasions.
We are a senior couple, still working, with many experiences. We go to Atlanta several times a year to see my children (and shop at Phipps and Lenox). My overall review is that if you are going to Atlanta to shop and do not wish to pay the Ritz/Mansion tariff that this is a great choice and you will enjoy the breakfast.
Ps; if you object to the room smell, go next door to Orvis and purchase their "smellers".
