The hotel on entrance is a very large, open experience that has been kept very modern in its decor and service despite the older concrete structure of the building.
A bit of ongoing maintenance at the upper level leaves me wondering what the ceiling in the main lobby would look like (22 stories up) but that isn't something that affects my stay!
Stayed at the hotel for a week-long conference which was held in the lower levels of the hotel and in multiple wings... a little confusing to get around at first, but lots of meeting and conference rooms, all very well configured for our needs, and they do seem very flexible... so a nice place for a relatively large conference.
Getting there was easy enough, but I didn't arrive until about 3pm... I understand traffic in Atlanta is nightmarish in the AM, so be warned. The cab ride was $45 from the airport including a decent tip. (set rates to downtown area so the actual fare is under $40)
Rooms are very nice, AC unit is quite-to-moderate ceiling system, the bathroom was a little small, but well acquainted.
Most every room, it seems, has an outdoor balcony. My own door's locking mechanism was not great, but the latch did lock (just the "deadbolt" type lock was not functional)... Not that I was too worried about my 9th floor balcony... Spiderman is pretty honest :)
They do have a nice (but nearly hidden!) set of touchscreen computers in the lobby with connected laser printers to print boarding passes. They worked great, albeit a little slow. My only issue here is that they tucked them away to the point of only 1 (me!) in my party of 15 knew they were there.
Internet access is available, but not free. They have 2 levels of service which you pay for. The price is between $10 and $15 per day (with discounts for time of up to 4 days). You have to pay for the "premium" package to connect more than 1 device, so given a Laptop, smart-phone and an iPad, I needed the Premium package. In essence, add $15 per day to the price to be realistic.
Prices in the in-hotel shops are very high, but that is not surprising to me. The entire downtown area in Atlanta seems to be an expensive place.
Downtown location is pretty good... and the hotel is connected to the MARTA (public transit) and a small shopping center. A few restaurants nearby... I only visited 3 and ate at the catered conference for the rest.
I had one issue: my door was left ajar by the cleaning staff. The deadbolt was a little loose and would sometimes open slightly when only using the door handle, and it would seem that this happened to the cleaning staff and they left the room without the door closing all the way. A call to the manager and a visit by security (and nothing missing in my room) seemed to be an appropriate reaction to the incident, so I am not holding this against them.
So - nice, big hotel. Seems like a good location, on MARTA for those wanting public transit, and enough amenities to be comfortable. Room cost comparisons need to consider internet.
