I first stayed at this hotel in 2005, when it was a Radisson. I knew it was an older hotel ONLY because I am trained in that area. It had just been completely remodeled. The lobby is nice and modern. The next time I went there, it was back in the Hilton family as a Doubletree. After the first time I stayed here, I decided I needed to look no further for a place to stay in Atlanta, and I do go there often. This is my home in north Atlanta.
The hotel personnel are very accommodating and friendly. The breakfast is good, and the rooms are wonderful and updated. Only a little giveaway to the age is the ventilation system in the bathrooms. I have not visited the pool area.
My last visit was for a class, and, having left something I needed at home, I had to order a new item to be overnighted. The staff made sure I received my package in time for my class.
This hotel is near the Galleria business center. It is next to I-75, just north of 285, so it is convenient, but with all the landscaping, trees, and hills, it feels like it is in the country and secluded. At the recommendation of the manager, I found Houston's, a wonderful restaurant, on Windy Hill, across the Interstate from the hotel. The filet mignon was so good, another class attendee joined me the next night for the very same meal and thought it was as good as I did. It is located near the business center, so it is quite busy for happy hour and after-work dinners. Also, the Barrett Parkway exit in Marietta is not very far north (approximately eight to ten miles). There are numerous restaurants and shopping there. The Cumberland Mall is not very far, and is undergoing a complete renovation.
The new Atlantic Station [--] is several miles from the hotel, near Midtown. It is also a short drive to downtown and CNN, Centennial Park, the Coca Cola Museum, and the Georgia Aquarium [--]. Turner Field is just off the interstate, too. A lot to see and do, and fairly convenient by being next to I-75!
From the location, one would expect it to be very noisy, especially with respect its location to the former Air Force base. There is a military plane every now and then, but they are very interesting to watch flying over. I have never heard one while inside the hotel, and I've stayed probably a total of two weeks there in the past two years.
The rooms are extremely nice and well decorated, and I've never slept in a more comfortable bed in a hotel. I typically don't go to spend all my time in the room, but here I don't want to leave the room. The Neutrogena toiletries are nice. There is wired internet access in the rooms, but I found I could access the wireless internet from my room. If one didn't bring a computer, there is always the business center downstairs.
I have recommended this hotel many times and will continue to stay here as many trips as I possibly can.
