“Moved entire block to a different hotel without notice”
Reviewed August 19, 2009

The ellis move our entire group block to a completely different hotel on the other side of town without so much as a peep, had one of our party not noticed the charge from another hotel on their card we wouldn't have known until we got there. The hotel interior is nice, but they clearly don't care about accommodating their guests, and that's really what the hotel is supposed to be doing isn't it?

We live in Fulton County and I just wanted to get away to the city and enjoy a romantic night with my husband. The Ellis Hotel is located across the street from the 191 Club and within walking distance to great night life. From the time you pull up to the hotel you are met with five star service! The check-in was fast and we were greeted by name, given the key to our room and personally told what the amenities were, where and what time. Our room was a corner room with a view and taste of life in the "ATL". One can tell that the staff here really enjoy what they do because they are doing what they like. A very friendly atmosphere but yet private. The hotel was clean and sparkling from window to door. Check out was fast and they made us feel they really wanted us to come back. This is a quaint hotel for special people. Go and enjoy like we did!

From the time we arrived at the door, the staff welcomed us with smiles, help, and advice. Calvin, the bellman, carried my bags to the room, and later helped my friend and I locate restaurants and offices. The desk gave us great advice about food, and the restaurant staff in the hotel provided great service and wonderful food. This type of service makes time away from home easy to handle. I will stay at The Ellis again.

What made the Ellis so warm and inviting were the staff. From the moment I arrived and throughout the week that I stayed they were attentive, friendly, courteous, and helpful. I had a lovely stay due to this on my first visit to Atlanta! Queen room was small, but adequate and always clean and comfortable.

My mother and I decided to take my grandmother (85 yrs old) to see a play at the Fox Theatre and to stay overnight. We chose The Ellis based on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. The decorating was beautiful and every employee we encountered was very professional yet personal. We enjoyed every minute we were there. We had wine in the bar and the taxi stand is right outside. Our room could not have been more comfortable. When I go back I will not stay anywhere else.

After Delta bumped us from our flight to Rome for 24 hours, we found good reviews of this hotel and decided to give it a try. Making the reservation over the phone was simple and they accommodated our family of five with a junior suite for just $129 for the night. Marta delivered us to the front door and we were welcomed by a great front desk attendant. He was able to provide great information about where to purchase necessities (Delta still had our luggage - which would later not see for the duration of our 12 days in Italy) and where to eat. The room was comfortable with two queen beds and a pullout sofa. It was clean, and the decor was hip. We had a wonderful breakfast in the hotel dining room the next morning. In the middle of a rotten travel experience, this hotel was a wonderful respite. We will certainly stay there again and recommend it highly.

My stay at the Ellis was significantly less costly than nearby chain hotels (Marriott, Hyatt) and was far more personable and pleasant. The property is beautiful and new due to the recent renovation, with a great boutique feel. The staff are friendly and warm - everyone you meet says hello and asks about your stay. The restaurant offers a good, although somewhat pricey, menu. I would absolutely recommend the Ellis as the place to stay in downtown Atlanta.
