I came to Georgia for the first time this September for my boyfriend's Army graduation at nearby Ft. Benning. This hotel was a haven from the nasty budget hotel I had booked online, with a Southwest Airlines coupon I might add, but I didn't know of it until I got to walking around downtown. It's in a great location and the rates weren't too high. It sits right on the Chatahochee riverwalk that winds a couple miles up and down the river, makes for a nice evening stroll. It's also close by to the main night life in town on Broadway that has a variety of bars and some hit and miss restaurants that get pretty packed with an all-age crowd on the weekends.
There's also a Houlihan's restaurant in the hotel that has great lunch and a fabulous drink menu, the breakfast buffet looked good too but I didn't try it. That's the hotel's only food besides a small coffee shop that, thank god, brewed Starbucks coffee. I will absolutley stay here when I return in November and December with my parents who are total hotel snobs.
