Spent 3 nights at the W during Feb '14.
It's an interesting place with the entrance more akin to a dark night club with security staff letting you in.
You can tell that a lot of thought has been put into making this place feel different, though it's not my preferred taste of hotel decor.
My 12th floor room was well appointed, great bed & shower but in the daylight you could start to see traces of the decor looking old - scratches in a door here, chips out of the table there.
If you can I'd ask for a Nth facing room to watch the freeway juncture that separates the North and South sides of the city. The W is within minutes walking distance of the Atlanta Aquarium and World of Coke and the soon to be completed dome.
The restaurant downstairs was ridiculously good. I was part of a group of 10 and every single meal that came out was highly rated by the person eating it. And you'll pay for it being so! If you're after a simpler fair, there a more casual dining experience across the road from the hotel
Used the gym each day - it is a GENUINE gym - free weights, running machines, cycles and more along with a speed ball and bag, weight machines and a yoga/stretching area.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about this hotel were the staff - on the ball, quick to handle requests or offer advice as needed. Our group came in from all over the place - South Africa, Australia and across the US and bookings handled with ease
Another great thing was that it was just a couple of hundred meters walk from the train station back to the airport - don't bother with a cab as the MARTA was quick, clean and perfectly placed
