This place is a absolute gem for the price. My family traveled to Atlanta to spend the Christmas holiday recently, and we initially chose this hotel because of the reasonable price and the fact that they don't charge for parking (unusual for Atlanta hotels, we soon learned). This place was an absolute haven for us for our vacation. We rented one of the studio rooms, and had more than enough space for the four of us, comfortably (king bed for the adults, comfortable sleeper for the kids). The fireplace was a really nice touch as well, and it was so relaxing to be able to sit and watch the fire burn as we relaxed in our 'holiday haven', as we came to call it. The room was exceptionally clean. There were plenty of supplies available if needed (ie. dish detergent, coffee, sugar, pots, pans, etc.), and whatever was lacking was quickly remedied with a call to housekeeping.
I think that the part that made this visit most memorable for us was the staff. They were so warm and welcoming, and frequently went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We have visited many nice hotels that have gorgeous grounds and look so beautiful from the outside, but were very much lacking with the warmth and professionalism of their staff. This place absolutely does not have that problem. Staff is so crucial to a business, and can literally make or break the guest's experience with that hotel. This staff was just fantastic, and we so appreciated everything that they did for us, and especially how they made us feel during our stay with them. I would think that, simply because of proximity to the downtown area, other hotels might get chosen first before this one, but I'm so glad that we went with our first instinct and went with this location. The staff here is just exceptional at what they do, and that means so much for a busy family looking for a relaxing, rejuvinating holiday getaway.
We weren't able to use the pool or whirlpool this go-round, because they were both located outside and it was cold during our stay, but I would imagine that it would be a nice addition to your vacation when the weather allows. Internet access was available in the hotel lobby, and there was also free internet access in your room for the duration of your stay as well... my teens especially appreciated this part. The breakfast buffet was nice (sausage, eggs, french toast, bagels, yogurt, cereal, etc.). We saved sooo much money staying here, being able to cook our own meals and have such a lovely breakfast prepared for us each morning as well. Downtown is just a hop, skip and a jump away, literally. You can take Piedmont to Peachtree, and end up at the Lenox Place Mall in one direction and downtown Atlanta in the other, both within a few minutes. Taking Peachtree into downtown also allows you to see alot on the way, and learn where other attractions are located in the process.
Our family always goes Marriott when we travel, and up until now, we'd almost exclusively stayed at Fairfield Inn. This experience has definitely given us a new respect for Residence Inn, and we will absolutely use this chain again AND return to this location for another Atlanta family getaway. Excellent stay!
