“stay in Buckhead, not downtown”
Reviewed October 9, 2010

paper-thin walls -- had to upgrade, which was no better. most expensive rooms had no refridgerator -- just an ice bucket. hotel did not even have champagne glasses -- they brought us scotch tumblers to go with our bottle of champagne

Conference rate, got room on 24th floor. Room fine for 2, comfortable beds, wifi worked well - free with conference. Hotel is built around atrium so noise echoes. Also hear all the street noises even on the 24th floor. 8 elevators worked well until hotel got busy on Saturday night and then it was ridiculous. For check out on Sunday it seemed as if only 2 were working. Good sized outdoor pool but with no security - anyone could be in the area. My co-attendees were concerned about overall security , felt that a lot of people who didn;t belong were hanging around on all the floors & that many people having trouble multiple times with malfunctioning key cards and elevators weren't key carded.
Coffee shop expensive, tried to eat in 1st floor restaurant on lunch time & gave up after waiting for 20 minutes with no service. Fair number of restaurants within safe walking distance otherwise not the area for browsing stores. Peachtree Mall reached across a walkway [habitrail tube], through Marriott, through another building and another habitrail - fast food , dead space and failing junky stores. This is where the closest MARTA stop is - quite a hike if you've got heavy luggage. Airport shuttle costs $29 round trip. You do not get a reserved return time, claim they come every 30 mins., waited 1 hour - the van had filled up & had to wait for another - and 5 people were left waiting for 3rd van. At least $30 one way to airport for a taxi. Doorman said they have lots of problems with the shuttle and recommended people sharing taxis. Would not stay here again by choice because of the location.

I recently stayed at this hotel for 4 nights as part of national convention. The hotel is huge and has nice conference space. The Bellmen were very efficient and taxis were always available to got to restaurants. The hotel restaurant has a very limited menu and the service was so-so. The little mini-mart had ridculous prices ( $3.00 for a very small bottle of water) I would not stay here as a tourist as there is nothing close to walk to. The room was a standard room at a big conference hotel. good fitness center

Hilton is always an understandable experience. They served grits for breakfast at the conference, giving a southern feel, plus they had everything else you could want. Coffee was hot and terrific. We walked to the event at Coca Cola in a group. I ended up on the executive floor and had breakfast up there. You can bring one person up with you so I should have brought a client up with me...next time. It was unpretentious, clean and simple. Dinner at Trader Vics...well, definitely try the lobster dish. It was amazing and yes I know Atlanta is landlocked. The WonTon Soup and the scallops were great too. Can never go wrong with the rum there...pages of drinks. Thanks again, Hilton.

I stayed here because my conference was booked here. I thought about staying at the Marriott across the street, but thought it would be more convenient to stay here. If only I'd known there's a walkway on the 2nd floor directly into the Marriott, I probably would've booked there instead. Anyway....

The best part of my stay was the room. I walked in and was pleased to see a spotless room. Checked the bed for signs of critters, saw none (and had no problems thereafter, by the way). They had a convenient night-light system built into the night table, that seemed to have a motion sensor on it, so when you step out of bed at night, it would light up. Pretty neat. Iron and coffee maker (Cuisinart) were quite new and worked well. The coffee provided was super. Hair dryer was standard. Shower had a nice curved shower rod and shower curtain was spotless, as were the towels.

On the negative side: My room had an unappealing view of the highway and it was pretty loud the whole time, despite the fact my windows didn't open and I was all the way up on the 20th floor. That didn't bother me, but if you're used to quiet surroundings, that might make it hard to sleep. The water temperature seemed to vary a lot, even during a single shower, so I was constantly adjusting the temperature. The sheets and pillows were terribly uncomfortable. I'm perhaps a bit pickier about sheets and pillows than most, but I found the sheets really scratchy and the pillows just not supportive at all. (Again, the scratchiness seems to have nothing to do with critters, just really rough material.) The lights in the room are ridiculously bright. Great if you're paranoid about bugs and want to inspect your room like you're a crime scene investigator. Not so great if you want to do some relaxing reading before bed.

The face-to-face service here is what lets this place down the most. There was nothing truly bad, but the staff seem kind of grim and depressed. I was speculating, maybe overworked, maybe underpaid, maybe having labor issues with management, they're just not people-people - who knows? You rarely get a smile and there's a feeling that they're pushing themselves just to do the bare minimum.

I was at a conference and heard a lot of people saying they had long waits for the phone to be answered, or to get room service.

The accomodations were fine and the staff was most pleasant, but the $26 per night parking fee is a little outrageous, even for downtown Atlanta. My first night I dined at the Southern Elegance restaurant on the lobby floor since it was the only eating establishment open in the hotel. I paid nearly $30 for the most overcooked and tasteless piece of fish I have ever experienced. local eating establishments near the hotel are almost non-existent and the "street life" surrounding the hotel at night makes wandering out on foot a hazardous proposition. I would recommend staying away from Downtown Atlanta for lodging, but if you must stay in the bowels of the city, shop around before staying here.
