The front desk and housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable, the furnishings functional and attractive, and the color scheme a calming mix of browns, wheat and light gray. The desk area was very good, with fast wireless connections. There was a useful makeup area next to the closet. The one sink was in the bathroom, which offered limited space, limiting bathing/shower/toilet options to one person at a time.
There was a nice large Panasonic HD TV which was wasted by a non-HD (SD) coax cable connection with a limited selection of channels. This made it difficult to read small type, such as scrolling news headlines and sports scores. Most of the channels we watch at home were not offered.
The shower offered hot water that was just barely warm enough. You won't scald yourself!
To a great extent, the hotel seems to have been freshened in recent years. Most room and lobby furnishings were very clean, attractive, and fresh looking. A few things, like the elevators, cable TV system, door locks, and exterior showed signs of age and wear.
Parking is at a premium, and I certainly believe the folks who wrote about the lot being full in their reviews.
There's a well equipped exercise room.
No free breakfast, but an on-site restaurant that serves breakfast, dinner, and room service.
The location is extremely convenient, and gets the hotel over the hump from three stars up to four for me. Head west on N Druid Hills and you're in Buckhead in 5 minutes. Go south on Buford Hwy and you're in Midtown in 8 minutes. Being right alongside I-85, you have easy access to the northern suburbs. The CDC and Emory are nearby. Coming in our own vehicle from Alabama, I-85 took us right to the hotel's front door at the N Druid Hills exit.
