“Excellent Budget hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

A well situated hotel for public transportation. . The room was spacious and had plenty storage and a safe deposit box. A comfortable bed with clean bedding gave a good nights sleep.
Breakfast was included and this was all self service. The only slight downside was everything was disposable - plates, cutlery and cups. However, the quality of the food was quite acceptable in this price range of hotel. No restaurant in this establishment but plenty of decent eating places around about. Free internet for guests
Staff were welcoming and friendly. Would use again.

Some of the staff remembered my name, all of them had warmth and interest in pleasing the guest.The hotel is historic. The dining area has 15+ ft. ceilings. Breakfast is the standard that Hampton bases their reputation on. The suite rooms are comfortable and very clean. Ours had 10-12'ceilings. Location is across less than a block from the Westin and across the street from the Marriott. Its about a 15 minute walk to the convention center. It is a few blocks from the aquarium and the Coca Cola Museum.

pros- the hotel is very convenient for those who want to see the atlanta sites. it is generally clean and the staff is very friendly. the coffee/tea available 24/7 was a great touch.

cons- rooms are quite small. my room had a mild funny (though not unbearable) smell taht probably would have been gone if the room could be aired out. alas, the windows of the room don't open. if you are arriving at night and are looking for some standby needs, make sure you get them before you arrive in downtown. there is little available at night (ie no convenience stores, small supermarkets). fitness room only had minimal equipment. tehre is no pool. maybe my expectations were too high based on all teh reviews and it is a great value for its location, just don't expect a great hotel. acceptable, good, but definitely nothing special.

Dear ajayaj,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your recent stay here at the Hampton Inn & Suites Atlanta Downtown.

I’m glad you found our location to be convenient and our rooms clean and well appointed for your needs. I’m sorry that we fell short of your expectations and only viewed your stay as “ok”. As you pointed out, we are in a downtown urban setting and like a few of our competitors we don’t have a pool onsite. As for availability of convenience stores, there are two stores located within 2 blocks of the hotel. One of them being a national chain- CVS drug store.

While I understand that you have many choices for lodging in the downtown area; I hope that you will still consider staying with us when you travel to Atlanta again.

Hospitably Yours,
Andrew May – General Manager

I enjoyed my three nights at the Hampton Inn in downtown Atlanta in late September. The location was perfect. I was traveling alone and walked around Centennial Park and took the MARTA to Midtown. I dined at the nearby Hard Rock Cafe, and Legal Seafood which was across from the aquarium. I did not venture out alone after dark. My room was just the right size for a solo traveler, and I did not hear any noise from neighbors or the street. I utilized the business office, but not the exercise room. The breakfast was fine as I only eat oatmeal for breakfast, and the oatmeal was very good.

The only negative was that a front desk staff member gave me the incorrect directions to the botanical gardens, which I was trying to get to by MARTA. The MARTA is very convenient. Had I known how convenient it was, I would have taken it from and to the airport instead of spending $29 round trip for the airport shuttle.

Located in downtown Atlanta, the Hampton Inn is an older building that is well kept and very clean. The standard king rooms are very small and felt a bit claustrophic to me. We ended up with a standard room with two double beds and it was a bit roomier. The first king room we saw was on the second floor facing the main road and it was very noisy with all the traffic from the street. The double room we got was on the 5th floor on the side of the building and much quieter. The beds were comfortable but the pillows seemed small. That may be because I am used to King pillows. The elevators were fast and wait time was not long. The breakfast was the standard Hampton Inn breakfast. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. You can easily walk to CNN, the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca Cola and lots of restaurants as well as Centennial Park. It was a bit far to the Geogia Dome to walk but doable. There is a fee of $18/day for parking paid through the hotel. I don't know of any free parking in downtown. There is a MARTA station about two or three blocks away.

Stayed here while attending a convention in Atlanta. Rode Marta from Airport and hotel was a short ten minute walk from Peachtree Center Station. Price for Marta was far less expensive than a cab ride or shuttle. Hotel is in an older "historical" building that has been modernized as a Hampton Inn. Parking is next door but a private lot. Cost? $18 a day. Very convenient to hotel. Side door automatically opens to hotel. We chose main road entrance which needed someone to let us in. Staff was efficient and we were treated very well. Elevators were fast. Some rooms are smaller than others. If possible, get a corner room. Our room had an outer room with a couch (very hard) and a comfortable chair. Nice HD TV in this room as well as bedroom. Beds were comfortable. Views from our corner room were the parking lot and local buildings. Nothing special to see. Shower did not have a lot of water pressure and it took a little while for water to get warm. Towels were soft. Breakfast was the usual fare for a Hampton. Staff was efficient, friendly and helpful. Checkout a breeze. Access to nearby areas was nice. Our convention was at a Sheraton Hotel about 4-5 blocks away. We walked both ways several times a day. Keep in mind, Atlanta has some streets that are similar to San Francisco meaning uphill walks can be challenging. There are a lot of Atlanta Tourist Representatives around so ask them for help if needed. Our Hampton was close to Centennial Park, the Aquarium, CNN and more and we felt safe walking at night, as a group, to these places. Many good restaurants are within ten minutes.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room, they are bigger than others.

We enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed and registered quickly. Fresh cookies and beverages were available in the lobby. $18 is steep for self parking, but the lot was well-lit and secure. We did have a problem twice with automatic exit gate. However, we would stay again. Close to many attractions .
