This hotel is right on the edge of the University of Georgia campus. We stayed in the original part of the hotel, but it had been updated and the rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. The bathroom was updated. The two double beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the four pillows per bed. The public spaces were very nice; the lounge and restaurant were updated, upscale and lovely. The room service breakfast we ordered was surprisingly reasonably priced and served hot and on time. The room service menu had many many offerings, but being in the heart of a college town, there's no reason to eat in when there are so many great local bars and restaurants within walking distance. The hallways get awfully noisy when there's a bunch of folks checking out pre-dawn, so I think the sound-proofing leaves something to be desired in the original building. The only reason we didn't give this hotel a five-star review is because of the gouging on price during football weekends, when the room prices nearly triple. I'm a capitalist and understand market prices, but geeez!
