The hotel is a bit confusing when you arrive by taxi you are in an underground garage and have to navigate escalators to the main lobby, wouldn't have been a big deal but I was travelling alone with way too much luggage as usual!
The front desk staff was amazing! They were extremely helpful, upbeat and fun. After my excellent service at check-in I would pop by and ask if I had any questions about anything else in the hotel or the area and they were great - definitely a 5 star experience there.
My room was on the 54th floor facing Peachtree - great view just by being up so far and it was nice to fling open the drapes and just have that open air feeling. There's a weird little quirk to the building that gave the illusion that my room was looking right into another but it was blacked out and private. Overall, the room was good. The bathroom was definitely smaller than what I normally see when I travel but I was prepared for it after reading others reviews.
The elevator situation was challenging and confusing, I could tell that people were getting irritated about it and it was inconvenient at times but I tried to just have fun with it. Each elevator has designated floors that it stops on and you have to insert your key to choose a floor. Some stop at just lower floors, some at just upper floors, some at meeting floors and some at all floors. Since I was attending a business meeting at the hotel I had to use them a lot so it got to be a bit of a pain to have to insert your room key every time but I found that if I just kept a sense of humor about it everybody else was having the same issues so it was good "elevator conversation".
The location for this hotel is perfect - well within walking distance to several choices for dinner, drinks and shopping. I love being able to walk off those long days in meetings and I found a lot of good choices and felt safe as long as I was back to the hotel before dark. It is a typical downtown atmosphere and I had been told by friends that I should be cautious about walking downtown very late but I never felt unsafe.
Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here.
