We stayed one night on a short visit to Atlanta. Visiting friends in near-by Druid Hills made this a convenient location. The following day, the airport car hire drop-off centre was a half-hour drive. The room itself was a bit on the tight side - we had requested a room with two beds but none were available - instead our... More

The location is perfect for navigating Metro Atlanta. It is very close to downtown Decatur. The check-in staff was very friendly. Our room was nice and quiet and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The welcome "happy hour" was very nice, offering drinks and snacks. The free breakfast offered a good variety of food and it was constantly... More

We chose this location based on our plans to visit both Stone Mountain and Turner Field. The room was clean. Every time we walked in or out, the staff spoke and was friendly. Within walking distance to a Publix grocery store and Little Caesars. Ok small indoor pool and sauna. Biggest complaint would be the painfully slow elevator. We just... More

Dear bbutler12, Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that we met your expectations of great service during your stay. I'm sorry that you had difficulties with a slow elevator.

Overall a fine room, in decent shape. Farthest down the hallway, which was nice because there was no hallway noise but the traffic was audible. A pair of light earplugs helped with that. Biggest concern was the mold issue on the bathroom ceiling which hopefully has been taken care of after I let them know about it. Really no where... More

Was in town for a wedding. This hotel was close to the reception venue. It was clean and the staff was very polite. My room was 106 and at first I was reluctant to be there as it was close to the main lobby and the window was at the parking lot. But I was happy that it was not... More

My second visit at this hotel. I enjoyed everything about my first stay 4 months earlier. In advance I booked and paid for a king bed suite for 6 nights.

Dear DieterW, As we have discussed while you were on property, the reason you did not get the room type that you reserved is because you cancelled your date of arrival at 1130pm and I advised that you would be charged for the one night guarantee. Our hotel was sold out and once cancelled, you lost your room type. We... More

An okay location for Emory. Clean room and free parking. Off of north Decatur Td and is close to publix supermarket. Only covenient if you want to visit Emory and the city of Decatur. Atlanta will be about a 15 min drive.

I checked in at this hotel at 5:00am on a Monday on recommendation from the hospital staff at Emory, where my aunt was in the ICU.
