“Too big and old for an OMNI”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I was excited to stay here for a business trip. The location seems good on paper but is surrounded by an unhip downtown area. You need to travel a few miles to encountered authentic Atlanta (Midtown and Virginia Highlands) The neighborhood is sketchy at nighttime.
as a funtime drinker, its hard to find great places for cocktails late at night, esp on Sundays.

The hotel itself feels enormous, because it is. The rooms are fairly spacious, especially the bathrooms. However, the decor and fixtures are dated. The TVs are small and standard def. My tv seemed to be running on UHF - all the channels were grainy. The staff is nice and accomodating, but unless you are here for a Falcons game of a conference, I would recommend looking elsewhere.

I was here for a work annual meeting. The rooms were comfortable and the staff friendly. However, none of us (900+ people) could take a hot shower. The shower water was luke warm. Also I found the hotel layout confusing. Overall the stay was average.

I am currently staying at this property for an Annual Sales meeting with about 1000 guests from my company. The location is downtown next to CNN, Phillips Arena. Check in was smooth and quick. When I got to the room noticed the decor of the room was very dated. Room was clean as well as the hallways. TV's are old Tube style, lamps were a bit worn and rusted. Two of the lamps in my room needed new light bulbs as they did not work. Maintenance people were quick to replace the light bulbs. The hotel has a nice gym with about 6 Treadmills, and 4-5 Elyptical Trainers. Also had free weights as well as Cybex stations. On my second day at the hotel, woke up to know hot water. I confirmed with my co-workers and apparently no one had hot water. I typically stay at Starwood, Marriott, or Hyatt properties when traveling, but did not have choice on hotel this trip since this was a large annual meeting with only this property. There are better choices in the area, I would avoid this property.

The hotel and rooms were up to Omni standard but what i found disappointing was the staff. I found them very cold and distant except for a few exceptions. Over the 3 days we were there we could walk to anywhere downtown we needed to, so for us the location was perfect.

This hotel offered us a MARTA train station very close by, the Georgia Dome and Phillips Arena within a short walk, Centennial Olympic Park just across the street, and the CNN food court without even going outside. Tours of the World of Coke and Georgia Aquarium were just a block or two away. The hotel itself is fantastic. We had nothing but rave reviews for this hotel experience.

Room Tip: We were on the 26th floor and noticed no noise or anything else that would prevent us from having a...

I stayed here due to the proximity to the convention center and the fact that I let someone else make the arrangements. My preference would have been to stay two to three blocks away at a Starwood / Hyatt property (and get usable points).

I ended up with an interior room which was something unique as I could see the CNN jumbotron across the atrium and watch a lot of the activity on the first floor. Without the proximity to the convention center or the combined space with CNN, this hotel would not have much going for it. As it is, the location / CNN thing help overcome the many shortcomings.

Staff is pleasant and friendly. The room decor and TVs (as noted by others) are very dated. Seems like upgrading the TVs for a property sharing space with CNN would be a priority.

Overall, good location and a unique setup. Wandering around the first floor area one morning for breakfast at Starbucks was interesting as there were more than a couple of celebrity sightings...

Room Tip: Avoid the interior rooms

Gorgeous hotel, perfect location and excellent service. No better hotel in Atlanta for location, amenities and price. We were in town for Atlanta Hawks game, we never had to step outside as the Omni is connected to CNN Center and Phillips. Taco Mac is the perfect place to tailgate. If you are coming in town for a game at The Georgia Dome this is the closest hotel. Wonderful mini vacation! We will return!
