“Not as nice as Marriott believes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Overall, it was a good experience. But for the price, I would expect an outstanding experience. I'd say it would be a good value if booked at a discount.

Love that it's literally across the street from a MARTA station, making it very convenient for downtown activities.

We stayed here three nights while visiting Atlanta & attending the NFC Championship. We love the JWs & have stayed at ones in Hawaii, Indianapolis, Chicago, Orlando & Grand Rapids, but this one just doesn't have the awe factor as the previous ones I mentioned. I do have to say that the staff is very friendly & professional.

We had a corner room that was nice, but for $30 more a night, not worth it. The bed was very comfortable & bathroom nice, but walk in shower was small compared to the other JWs.

Overall, this was my least favorite JW of the others that we stayed in, but nice otherwise.

I would recommend if staying in the Atlanta area.

Everyone was very kind and helpful. The hotel was clean, modern, convenient to MARTA, shopping and restaurants. Quiet sleeping although I could hear street noise in a.m. Someone even loaned me an adaptor to charge my cell phone. All in all worked well for me.

A two-night stay at this prime hotel in Atlanta proves the old adage, "luxury breeds luxury". Impeccable service, dynamic decor, facile reservation-making. No courtesy missing. Excellent dining and shopping facilities within walking distance. One slight inconvenience: no in-room conveniences such as coffee machine or refrigerator. No complimentary breakfast.

This hotel really does have it all: gym, indoor lap pool, and jacuzzi. Across the street from Marta and in the adjoining building of the Lennox mall. Food at the hotel is expensive, as expected, but there are plenty of options at the food court in Lennox mall or across the street at Houston's or Truffle Grill, the latter being the most preferable for me-delicious!! I stayed on the 20th floor with a beautiful view if downtown Atlanta-breathtaking!! Would definitely return-worth every penny!!

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days while in Atlanta for a conference in early December. The location, in the uptown area of Buckhead, is well placed (across the street from Metro Lennox) and ideal if you have time for a little shopping (right next door to the Lennox Mall, which can be accessed right from the hotel lobby. It might be a little way away of you have business or meetings downtown but the metro and cabs are easily available. The staff were helpful, arranging rides (they have a complimentary car service that can take you to meetings within 2 miles of the hotel; ask the concierge and tip the driver!) and were very efficient correcting a mistake with my reservation. The gym and and pool/jacuzzi area is excellent. Didn't try the food but all in all I would recommend this hotel if you're in town for business and want somewhere of good quality without hassle. Would stay again.

Comfy bedding, great hot water under high pressure, and cleanliness are my measures of a good hotel. This one has all. Even on the 23rd floor there was endless hot water with no problem with pressure. In all cases, the consistent quality you expect from Marriott is present. We requested a corner room and enjoyed a significantly larger and quieter room at no cost. Also, we requested a fridge which was provided. Parking in the garage is nearly a necessity and is $20 a day. The egress and ingress to the hotel and the garage is tricky so pay close attention to your GPS directions. There are many great restaurants, shops, and attractions near the hotel including Fernbank, MLK Jr. National Heritage area, and several museums.

Room Tip: Breakfast at the Nox Grill in the hotel was $22 each. Ouch! A short walk to the adjacent Lenox Squar...
