We were only in town one night and we stayed here. Great location and walking distance to the downtown Decatur area where there are lots of restaurants, bars and shops. The parking is only $10/night which is very good for Atlanta. The hotel looks like it has been recently remodeled and the staff is very nice. i would stay here... More

Stayed on the fourth floor Saturday night and there was a wedding party staying at the hotel. We were woken up multiple times by party goers throughout the night and then people talking loudly and eating breakfast in the atrium in the am. Great location and nice to have a shuttle but be sure to ask for a room on... More

A little pricey but a great option for downtown area. Walking distance to all the many 100+ restaurants and shops. Parking is extra and under the hotel. Front desk was super helpful. Try to get an interior facing, high room or you'll face the street.

This is a solid hotel in a great location, right beside lots of shops and restaurants associated with the light rail stop. The hotel isn't super nice or trendy, but it is efficient and generally comfortable. Wifi (at least a slow version) was free, and there is an on-site shop and cafe. The staff were really friendly, and check in/out... More

This is probably the best place to stay in Decatur. It is not a luxury hotel, but it is quiet, well maintained, and the rooms are recently put together. The hotel is near the very cool part of Decatur, with easy walking to all of the fun restaurants and bars. It is also very close to Emory, and likely the... More

Very affordable - parking included. The hotel is rather large (conference center attached) and the rooms are very cozy. The place feels very Euro in all the right ways.

The hotel is located 1 block from the MARTA station, making it easy to get to. There are a dozen OUTSTANDING restaurants all within walking distance. The square in Decatur, also a block away, is a beautiful gathering place for people and events. The hotel itself is well-maintained, and the staff is always courteous and helpful - no exceptions yet!... More
