Barclay Hotel Atlanta Downtown
Ranked #122 of 172 Hotels in Atlanta
Reviewed February 23, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for one night in mid-February. My reason for choosing this hotel was because of it's price and central location. When I checked in, I was initially given the key to a room that had not been cleaned yet. After going back to reception and letting them know, they apologized profusely and transferred me to a different room. Ms. Greta at the reception was very friendly and even remembered my name when she saw me later in the afternoon.

My room was of a standard size for budget hotels - not huge but not too small either. The room was clean, quiet, and had all of the basic amenities e.g. tv, hairdryer, alarm clock. The shampoo and conditioner were smaller than average and smelled a bit weird so I ended up using my own from home. My room was on the 8th floor and looked out over a parking lot; however I could also see some of the Atlanta skyline which was nice. The room furnishings and the bathroom both showed some signs of aging but as others have remarked this is not a new hotel. Breakfast in the morning was good and consisted of an assortment of cereals, joghurt, apples, eggs, sausage patties, gravy, muffins, danishes, juices, and bread.

The most negative point about this hotel was that starting dinner time, the hot air that came from my room's wall heating unit smelled strongly of fried food (chicken perhaps?). When I went to bed at 9:30 the smell was still coming into my room. In the morning the smell was gone or maybe I had gotten desensitized to it.

I paid $80 for the night and would probably go back if I had to stay in downtown Atlanta again and was on a budget.

You don't expect to stay in a downtown hotel in a large city and have the staff call you by name when they see you, but it happens here. Manager Greta Berry and her staff will do anything to make your stay enjoyable, and if there is a problem, it is rectified immediately. The hotel, while not a brand-new upscale boutique hotel, is clean, quiet, and offers excellence and value. It is convenient to anything downtown, and is the only place we will stay when we're in the city on business. The breakfast selection is well above average, and the beds rank up there with those at higher-priced chains. Thanks for a great visit....we'll be back!

If you are not after hoity-toity decoration and atmosphere, choose this hotel. The staff is welcoming and warm, super-friendly and helpful. You'll find plain down-home Southern graciousness. The breakfast was full of variety and we even got hot cookies out of the oven while waiting for our taxi. The room was small but quiet and had everything we needed for our business trip that included meetings at the convention center...only 6 blocks away. The short morning walk was invigorating. The aquarium is close too. We ate three times at the little Mediterranean eatery only 1 block up the alleyway from the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for three days and wished we could of stayed three more!! Greta Berry made our family feel welcome, comfortable, and important. She serviced our family to every want and need we could think of. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The contential breakfast was great. Overall, the stay was perfect. I think the best part of this stay was the staff. Greta was very receptive to our child and he loved his time here. Thanks Quality Hotel. The Malott Family

Stayed at this hotel with my group of about 30 for the passion conference. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance from the GWCC, CNN center, and the GA Dome. The price was good but the best part of the hotel was the sales manager Greta Berry and her excellent staff. I felt that the staff went above and beyond to meet any needs we had. Greta even made hot chocolate chip cookies for our group!
