My partner and I visited this hotel recently, mainly to watch the planes. Yes, that may sound a bit strange, but for plane-spotters and lovers of aviation, this hotel is probably THE BEST hotel in the United States! Be sure to book the "aviator package" and you'll get a room with a balcony offering an unparalleled view of runways 8L and 8R at the world's busiest airport, as well as a cute little kit that includes a couple of toy airplanes, some information about the airplanes you'll see, some "binoculars" that quite frankly weren't very good, a voucher for an appetizer and soft drink at the hotel bar, and a delicious buffet breakfast. We spent hours watching the takeoffs and landings from our balcony, and would have never grown tired of it.
Not surprisingly, many of the staff seemed interested in the planes, too, which only added to our impression of them as the friendliest hotel staff we have ever encountered. They were free and spot-on with their recommendations for the Atlanta area, and had a wonderful sense of humor as well as a sense of professionalism. We felt like honored guests and friends while we were there.
The room itself was very comfortable. But be forewarned: if you're sensitive to noise, you won't like the runway-view rooms. For plane enthusiasts, though, the constant takeoffs and landings until midnight or so are like white noise. I only had trouble sleeping when things quieted down!
We can't say enough good things about this hotel and the Atlanta area in general. The people were friendly, the city clean and inviting, and the hotel at the airport, simply paradise.
