We just returned from a long weekend get-away in Atlanta, GA at the Marriott Atlanta Northwest. The hotel is as other reviewers have described "off by itself"– but the location is great, quiet - yet conveniently close enough to area attractions and restaurants.
This Marriott has been recently renovated and has a Modern/Asian/Contemporary décor – really nice. The rooms are a bit on the small side – but are well appointed and we did not feel crowded even when a few friends stopped by for a quick visit before heading off to dinner.
The indoor pool was enjoyed by my niece and nephew and there is a whirlpool/hot tub as well. The fitness center has been upgraded with new machines and has something for everyone looking to keep up their gym routine while being away from home.
The Marriott beds are wonderful and my husband and I found it difficult to pull ourselves out of our goose down cocoon every morning – they were heavenly. We really enjoyed the large HD TV and bought several in-room movies due to the inclement weather (Snow in the South!) that rolled in Friday. We also reserved a mini-fridge and extra pillows on-line through Marriott Rewards and they were waiting for us in our room when we arrived (no extra charge).
The black quartz countertops, aromatherapy Bath and Body Works lotions/soaps/shampoo, and gentle rain-style showerhead made up for the lack of space in the bathroom. They have a catalog in the room if you want to order larger quantities of the soap/lotion/shampoo - I loved the clean citrus scent.
I would not bother eating in the restaurants in the hotel (great service – but bland and overpriced food). There are several great restaurants in the area within 5 minutes drive, but call ahead for reservations as they are newly opened and there can be a long wait - especially on the weekends.
There is no fee for parking at the hotel which really made the room rate attractive. Hotels in the Buckhead area charge $15 - $30 per night for parking.
Overall – we were pleasantly surprised at the level of luxury this location offers for the room price. We will definitely be returning the next time we need a little R&R.
