“Room Fantastic and nice facilities but the staff !”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Room was great, clean and everything you'd expect – Hotel facilities in bar , restaurant , shop all great ... Valet team outside very friendly but that’s where it stops - I have never stayed in a hotel where no one smiles or is friendly . Not one person from reception, to the bar, to the housekeeping smiled – it felt like intruding in someones house ! I have no idea if something had happened in the hotel as it was quite a surprise for a JW Marriott team to be so sullen. It got to the point I dreaded speaking to reception and did it over the phone as over my 5 day stay it was starting to grate. Had I not paid upfront through BA.com - I would have checked out. A perfect example that summed up the staff attitude was with something as dull as dry cleaning - I put some items in Day one - for next day return - Day 3 still not arrived - i chanced reception ( sadly in person ! ) to be told to see if concierge had it . Asked concierge , no response - she walked off returned with some hangers , Asked my name - went to hand it to me and said they hadn’t had chance to deliver it – although a day late .... I kindly asked them to send it to the room as I was off out. Hugely disappointing. Bad enough for one night - but 5 was draining.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room as they are bigger .

Normally JW Marriott properties are very well-appointed, service is great, rooms are spacious and clean, and all the elements of the property are well-designed. However, I found this hotel to be very poorly run, poorly maintained, and awkwardly designed. My department held a weeklong meeting there in mid-January, 2013. The staff was absolutely top-notch in terms of friendliness and accommodation. Shortly after checking in, I used the lobby bathroom and it wasn't clean. At all. The room was nice, clean, and large. The bed was comfortable. Above the bed, though is a smoke alarm with a bright green LED. Bright and annoying. Multiple people taped things over the light from the second night on.

On several of the days i finished with meetings around 430-500 pm only to find that housekeeping had not been to my room. One day, they didn't come at all. The restroom by the conference areas is just a mess. Fixtures pulling out of the wall, screws missing, stalls unclean.

I will say that the food was good (though i never tried the actual restaurant) and they had a lot of healthy options. There are several shuttles that will drive you within a certain radius for free. Getting one is a little bit of a CF as there didn't appear to be much of a system.

This isn't a bad hotel. It is, however, a terrible JW Marriott.

Room Tip: This may seem ridiculous, but specify that there is not a smoke alarm DIRECTLY over your bed. In so...

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!!
