“Great Hotel”
Reviewed January 15, 2011

Very nice hotel. The front desk staff is very friendly, helpful. It is in a great location, located within walking distance of UGA, many restaurants and bars. Free Wi-Fi is a plus, but they do charge for parking. Room was nice, quiet, clean. Plenty of extra room with a desk for working was a nice feature. Would certainly stay again and recommend to all travelers.

This is a regular destination and Gilda, Angela and Pam run the front desk, hotel and dining room with personality. Everyone is friendly, courteous and helpful. The breakfast fare is the best anywhere. I wouldn't go anywhere else in Athens.

The hotel was nice and clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect. It was directly across from the convention center and right downtown, convenient to everything. There was fresh coffee and hot tea in the lobby at all times. Great service at the downstairs bar. Overall excellent stay. I wish all hotels were like this one!

A few years ago I stayed in this hotel and had no complaints. However, I stayed there last night and found that the afternoon/evening staff was very green (nice & pleasant, but not knowledgeable or too resourceful). This is a well maintained hotel but as someone who stays in A LOT of Hilton brand hotels, I was surprised by the lack of knowledge much of the staff had, anywhere from where a restaurant was located within blocks of the hotel, and no offer to find the exact address, to sending a maintenance guy to the Business Center to try to fix both computer printers that weren't working.

Angela Smith, who manages this location, reached out to me to hear about my experience (I had filled out a form) and was sincerely concerned about my comments/concerns. This level of attention will certainly result in a more highly trained staff, and the workers themselves will benefit from how to be resourceful, or craft their wording.

Our experience was phenomenal. The resturant had a wonderful selection food, especially the breakfast. The pool and spa area was very clean and relaxing. We enjoyed our experience at your hotel and meeting all the friendly staff members. The service at the front desk was great! Our room was top notch, we had a great nights sleep. We'll definitely be staying here again next time we are in the area. Thanks to everyone, especially Ted and Bobbie.

My husband and I checked in the hotel rather late on Saturday night. The Front Desk clerk was lovely and very pleasant. When we checked in the room, we were impressed by the cleanliness and the freshness of the room! A wine bottle and a cheese board were set on the counter, sent by my husband’s brother. The Hotel Staff did a great job setting the wine and the cheese! We called the frond desk that very evening to thank them for their efforts.
The morning staff was delightful as well, courteous and bubbly! The breakfast looked great and the lobby was very inviting!
We would definitely recommend this hotel!

The location is totally awesome. RIGHT near shops, restaurants of all description and bars. All walkable. Right near UGA also. Staff is awesome. Rooms are spotlessly clean. We will stay here whenever we're in Athens.
