Stayed 3 nights at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta as part of the Association of Government Accountants' Internal Control and Fraud National Conference. (We received a discount rate of $115 per night versus the usual rate of $249 a night.) The room was a decent size and had some new furniture (dresser, bed headboards, desk, etc.) as well as a more modern/contemporary decorating style. The bed was reasonably comfortable and there was not a great deal of noise despite my room being located on the 2nd floor just above the main lobby.
The hotel is a bit older and shows some signs of wear and tear but is generally kept in good shape. However, there are some cosmetic problems (old bathroom with simply a new shower curtain for example) as well as some housekeeping issues. On my first night, I noticed a used towel underneath the sink (it was not visible when in the bathroom but visible when looking in the mirror next to the bed). I did not say anything about it and assuredly did not touch it as I wished to see if housekeeping would notice the towel. Obviously, they do not sweep or mop under the sink as the towel was still there at check-out.
The hotel staff were quite helpful and attentive, otherwise. The common areas of the hotel were quite nice and the ballrooms and seminar rooms were good (as well as the catered meals throughout the convention which I assume the Hyatt prepared).
Of course, being a downtown hotel, you *do* get nickeled and dimed with parking of $22 per day, almost forceable bellhop service, and no continental breakfast or snacks as in budget hotels. In addition, you must pay $10 per day for internet access.
The hotel had a fabulous fitness center with my only criticism being the lack of stationery bikes.
The hotel is located in the heart of downtown attached to an underground mini-mall. There are lots of quality restaurants in walking distance.
So, in summary, the hotel is nice enough to stay at if you can get a reduced rate, need to stay downtown, or are attending a conference. However, I would look elsewhere if other options were available.
