Three design features of the room were bad, bad, bad in terms of getting a reasonable nights sleep:
- noisy aircon fan that came close to waking you each time it clicked on
- a door closer on the front door that moved so fast you could only catch it to close the door quietly if you had Olympian reaction times. Otherwise the door slammed shut with a big bang and so did the doors of the other guests.
- one of those opaque windows between the bathroom and bedroom. If your travelling companion has to answer the call of nature in the night, the bedroom is flooded with light. Not a good story.
The reception is in a cavernous lobby with no comfy chairs and not one element of comfort or softness.
I requested a later than usual checkout (by one hour) and was told by the operator that if I was late checking out i would be charged an additional half day's room rate. Fair enough, but she could have been pleasant about it. There wasn't even a hint of Southern hospitality in the way my request was handled.
On the plus side, the location provides excellent access to the MARTA train system and is on a direct line to the airport. It's also within easy walking distance to the CNN centre, Coca-Cola Museum and Olympic park.
On a future visit to Atlanta I'd be looking for a hotel with a lot more soul and a lot more comfort.
