I just have to comment on two of the nicest employees who work in the Grill. Tiffany and Leroy were so attentive to our every need. Just such nice people. Truly Southern Charm. Can't wait for our return trip to this great Hotel.

This hotel is fabulous! Very clean room, linens, bathroom, towels, hallways and lobby. I've stayed here many times while visiting college kids, as well as most other hotels in Athens, and this one is by far the best. Consistent professional staff, always helpful and kind. Coffee fresh and hot in the morning available in the lobby. The location is ideal:... More

I recently stayed here while attending a conference at the Classic Center in Athens. The booking process was super easy and the front desk staff incredibly helpful and patient as I was making reservations for multiple folks. The hotel lobby was a tad confusing to locate because my Garmin brought me in from an odd direction. Once I wandered around... More

I stayed here while on business in Athens. The staff at check in were very helpful and friendly. One of the custodians even helped me find my room since the hotel's room numbers are a little tricky to figure out the first time there. The room itself was clean and spacious and the bed was quite comfortable. I would probably... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the times we spent with them in the Grill. Each drink was perfect and David is very attentive to his customers. What a delightful way to spend an evening! We even hosted an informal... More

I've stayed here numerous times. The people are simply outstanding, from the people who prepare the rooms and deal with requests (decaf tea) or just a preference. The people on the back side just are a marvel of thoughtfulness. I've eaten in the bar quite a few times; the bartender is a delight. He has always remembered my preferences and... More

Great location, walking distance to many restaurants and bars, and university. Plenty of parking, nice Lounge where we had a drink. After I left, I realized I had forgotten my expensive electric toothbrush in the room, and staff member Lesley was a huge help getting it back to me. Thank you!

This was the perfect location for our family trip to Athens. Lots of restaurants within walking distance to hotel. Mostly catering to the university crowd. Especially enjoyed David and Tiffany in the Redfearn Grill located in the hotel because they made us feel right at home and were just so easy to talk with. Our room, 1-252 was a good... More

Stayed here last October and was impressed. Entertained 16 family members in the bar and restaurant. Bartender Liz and server Tiffany were excellent. Very good food. Not typical "hotel food". Highly recommend the hotel accommodations also. Very comfortable bed and great pillows!
