Connected by a maze of walkways to Peachtree Center, the downtown Atlanta Hilton could not be more convenient if you are going to the Merchandise Mart. Whether it's a January ice storm or a July thunderstorm, you can make it to the mart and back to your hotel room without having to brave the elements.
I don't know when the hotel was built. I know that we finagled sought-after reservations to Nicholai's Roof in the late 70s and Nicholai's Roof seems to still be going strong. The point is: The hotel does have that tired 1970s architecture, and the interiors seem a bit like retro period pieces.
BUT the staff at this hotel is the friendliest of any hotel I've ever stayed in! They were the most attractive and genuinely happy group I think I've ever encountered. After a long day at market, their cheerful service is just the antidote you need.
My room was on the 21st floor of the I-75 side and I could still hear the trucks and cars above the hum of the a/c. Try to get a room on the Courtland Avenue side (if that's possible...I'm terrible with directions).
Nonetheless, I will definitely stay there again and would have already made a reservation for the January market but they don't take them this far in advance.
