Stayed in town for a wedding that was about 20 minutes out of town. Several options were in Athens, but this one had better reviews and at a better location, at a reasonable price. I requested upper level, away from elevator. I was given a corner king unit (# 491) and it was perfect! Had a view of the pool, and downtown. The pillows were extremely comfy and the bed slept very well. It was a large room with large bathroom, having everything we needed and was well kept and clean. Didn't have time to actually use the pool, but we did dine in the restaurant the morning we left as we paid a little extra for breakfast. The breakfast was wonderful -- plenty of choices and comfortable seating. My only complaint was the check-in process as there were renovations going on (I didn't think to check on that) so we had to wind through construction pathways; the check-in desk personnel was kind, but there should have been at least one more person on staff as there were quite a few parties trying to check in since it was close to check-in time. We waited longer than I would expect. In all though, I'd stay again because we were overall pleased with everything else.
