I Just returned from 5 days in Buckhead and the W Hotel.
The Good: The location was ideal for my purposes. Lots of shopping and dining nearby and access to the Marta right across the street. The W provided excellent transportation services through the concierge desk. I used the drivers each day (since I did not rent a car). Nice perk!
The lobby and entrance is smart and stylish. I enjoyed the Serenity Pool and liked the fitness center, complete with headsets etc. The staff was great. The bed was delightful.
The Bad: The bathroom in the room! Though I should just call it a toilet room. Or rather a toilet in the middle of the room witth a sliding door. The worst design I have ever seen. The only way this works is if you are traveling alone. (I was not)
I also did not love my breakfast at the Market restaurant on the first floor. Not much of a selection and they got it wrong 2 days in a row. In summary,
I enjoyed my experience but would probably select a more traditional hotel in the future. My 18 year old son loved the swanky setting. Maybe I am getting old.....
