I stayed at the Hilton Atlanta Airport after a really miserable airplane trip. When I arrived, hours late, I was jetlagged, tired, my back was out, my sciatica was acting up, and things had gone wrong all day. I had scheduled an extra day, because I knew that travel from SF to ATL with my back was likely to be challenging, but I was a MESS when I checked in.
Staff greeted me with friendly care, from the car valet to the desk clerk. They seemed to know from a look that I was in a bad state, and were kind. I was checked into my room in no time.
The room was blissfully comfortable and clean. I put the "do not disturb" sign on the door, and was not disturbed (I know this should not be a surprise, but I have been in too many hotels where housekeeping staff had to "just check" to see if I wanted something.) They left me alone, which is what I wanted, and I bathed and slept off the misery. Woke up at an odd hour, no problem, 24 hour room service. Slept some more, still no hassle from anyone.
To me, this is exactly what a hotel should be: a comfortable resting place at the end of a journey. I had good experiences on my "recovery day" in the restaurants and the gift shop.
In fact, I have only one gripe: in my room on the "Executive Floor" the wifi was very weak. I had to use the Ethernet connection with my laptop, and I could not use the wifi with my smartphone at all. Seriously, that needs fixing.
But otherwise, this was perfect. If you need a friendly oasis, this Hilton is just right.
