I've stayed at the Atherton several times, and I've had enough I think. The hotel is quite expensive for what it offers, but its location is second-to-none, so there you have it.
We arrived around 2 PM, and inquired about early check in, which was denied. The lobby smelled awful. It was like a sewer was backed up or something, and none of the staff addressed it. It was quite off putting. When we came back at 3 we waited for nearly 10 minutes before we were helped, and there was one guy in front of us. The girl was very slow, and she repeatedly took long dawn out phone calls without putting them on hold. I rate the service as poor.
When I made our reservations, they told us the only rooms they had left were "no view" rooms that had no windows, which they discounted $10 to $109. As it turns out, those rooms are awful. They're tiny, I could barely even fit into the bathroom, and the shower reminded me of a shower out of a college dorm. The paint was coming off the ceiling, the rooms were obviously very old, and not updated. It was terrible. I expected something less than ideal, but I was still very disappointed.
There is free breakfast, and the normal rooms I've had in the past were much better, but I'm pretty put off with this stay, and I don't think I'll be back, even with the excellent location.
