We got the Family Fun Pack, which included water park tickets. The water park was very good; fun and clean and the beach was a nice touch. There are lots of water play areas and the kids (ages 3 and 5) loved it. The lake was a little gross, but we didn't expect much else given how low the water level is right now.

We went directly to the water park first to let the kids tire themselves out, then to the hotel to check in and take a nap. The hotel staff were great, and the room was nicely furnished and clean. The best part was the pool and poolside service. The wife and I relaxed in the sun with beers while the kids played in the pool with other kids. And the food from the poolside bar was so good for dinner we came back for lunch the next day after checking out. Vegetarian options are typically scarce on bar menus (and this was no exception), but the wife couldn't get enough of the grilled veggie wrap (get some chipotle cheese sauce on the side please).

Overall a great weekend with the kids. A little pricey, but when all the construction is complete I think it will be well worth the price as a great short trip destination for Atlantans.

The hotel is gorgeous. The custom soaps and branch drawer pulls are a nice touch. I also liked having my own patio. But what our visit memorable is the staff, for good and not so good reasons. The doormen and front desk staff were excellent. We arrived at 10 am and they checked us in right away! Breakfast at the Windows Restaurant was amazing. The food was yummy and the staff was on point. My husband loved the shuttle that carried us back and forth to the waterpark. My children liked the neat pillows on the beds. Lunch at the poolside grille was not so impressive. Even after 3 visits to the kitchen, it took over 30 minutes to get a server to take our order for drinks. The pizza was gross, the fruit had been frozen, and ... you get the drift. The concierge left a lot to be desired. She had a fantastic map of the hotel that included the highways, but she refused to give me one, or a copy. She kept trying to give me a map of the property. Would I go again? Not for a while. They need time to work out some kinks.
