I recently stayed at this property for 3 days for a business conference. I stayed here because the conference is also at the hotel. The physical building itself is only average. It is an older building (probably built in the late 1960s-early 1970s) and the age does show some. My room was small but comfortable. I did not have any of the noise issues previous reviewers have mentioned. Bathroom was also small but, since I was alone, that was not an issue; it was adequate for me. Some folks may not appreciate the low flow heads on the shower and the faucets, but Atlanta (and the rest of the Southeast) has been in a severe drought for the past 3 years, so I appreciated their presence. I found the exercise room to be nice. Previous reviewers have complained about having to wait for equipment, but I did not have that problem. I did notice that there were coin-operated washers & dryers available for guest use right off the exercise room. Plenty of clean towels were available both in the exercise room and the pool area. Meeting facilities were adequate. Room temperature was kept remarkably comfortable considering the size of our group (over 500).
Location is good for someone who drives. Easy on & off the Midtown Connector (I-75/85). Parking is expensive ($18 self/$24 valet) but in line with what most hotels in the downtown area of a large American city charge. It is a 2 block walk from Peachtree St (uphill) and approx a 6-7 block walk to Centennial Olympic Park. Two Marta stations are within 2-3 blocks. Multiple restaurants are within walking distance but most are chain or hotel brands. There is no free Internet access; there are charges for both broadband & WiFi. There are a few computers around which you can use to print up a boarding pass (that is free) but you are charged for any other Internet access.
What bumps this hotel into the above average range to me was the staff. This hotel had what was probably the friendliest staff I have ever seen. I did not run into a single staff member during my entire stay who did not smile & ask how I was doing or if I needed anything. During check-in, I asked if a refirgerator could be brought to my room; I received one within an hour and was not billed extra for it. I had one instance where I needed my car in a hurry (had to pick up a friend who was ill), and the valet had it out to me within 2 minutes.
While I probably will not use this hotel for leisure visits to Atlanta (i usually prefer to stay in Buckhead or Midtown), it is not a bad choice for someone who wants to stay in the downtown area.
