First the bad part-like a previous reviewer I stayed at the hotel during a period that covered New Years 2011. New Years Eve all sorts of undesireable people were at the hotel to party-some downstairs at the bar and some seemed to be holding private parties in their rooms. I'm not some stuffy old party-pooper but the noise and activity was ridiculous. I agree that it sounded like some kind of mini-riot or something. My family and I stayed in our room because of all the loud activity by lots of guys who looked like gangbangers.
Then we were awoken after 2 a.m. because someone decided to pull the fire alarm for fun. As you can imagine, we were terrified as we looked for the exits to evacuate. When we saw that nothing seemed to be happening, the staff informed us it was a false alarm. We were so shaken up that we had a hard time getting back to sleep. In the morning the hallway was littered in broken champagne glasses, food and general debris. We did complain about being woken up by the false alarm and were given a 30% discount for that night.
Now for the good part! Everything at this place was great! The suites were roomy with a full kitchen with stainless appliances including a dishwasher. The spacious bathroom has a stackable washer/dryer in the closet which was super-convenient. Everything was clean and the staff were really friendly although I agree that when calling the front desk the phone would ring off the hook and one would have to try several times to get someone.
Atlantic Station itself is fantastic! Everything is within walking distance and there is TONS of security. You don't see any rough characters hanging around or vagrants looking for handouts. There's a Publix right next to the hotel and a Target about two minutes walk away. We shopped at both those places and were able to prepare food in our suite which kept food costs down. Atlantic Station has lots of nice stores and a great Multiplex and Ten Pin Bowling Alley was great. I loved this area and definitely will be back.
Twelve was great-I'd highly recommend it although I WILL NOT ever again stay over New Years. I'd just advise the management to get on top of this for future celebrations and either be more vigilant in who they allow to check in and/or have more security on that night.
