We booked to see the Chick-fil-la Bowl and asked for a room that overlooked Atlanta's New Years Eve celebration at the "Underground". Our room (23rd fl) looked down the street to where Atlanta hold it's New Years Celebration. We got back to our room @ 11:57 PM turned on the TV to see the Peach (could not see it from our vantage point) count down to 2014 and when it stopped a fireworks display started. We had our Champagne to toast and watched the display for 8 minutes.
Our room was not as nice as as most of the other Ritz-Carlton's we've been at - but it was comfortable and clean and as usual the staff is exceptional. The only negative was that parking is over $30 per day. The price was actually less than many of the other hotels near bye and we walked (20 min) to the Georgia Dome.More
