“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012 via mobile

Very cool, hip hotel. Love the lobby. The bar was great, and love having BLT right there.
Rooms are very W. Cool, but dark. We stayed in a corner suite, what a view of downtown. We took the kids and had them in a double next to our room. Front desk sent up movies, games, cookies and milk. My kids thought they were the most special people in the world.
The health club and spa were both very nice.
The only downside...it's in a very central spit but isn't actually close to anything without driving.
We loved it. We will definitely be back.

Stayed December 2011

I recently stayed at this hotel for three night in junior suite - great corner room with more than 1200 sf. The hotel, BLT restaurant, and staff are all excellent. The only thing to be aware of is the location - while very close to the World of Coke, the Atlanta Aquarium, and Centennial Park, it is not close to restaurants or any shopping - so be prepared to walk or better to ride or cab it to where you might be headed. I was there for events at Philips Arena so it was good location.

This W lives up to the W name. I enjoyed it more than the W Perimeter. Sleek and stylish. Rooms were clean, front desk folks very professional. I was here for business so could not indulge as much in the social aspects. Saturday night was happening - maybe too happening as the provided ear plugs in the room were needed.

Note that the shower separated the room and bathroom and was glass - I mention this for anyone considering staying here and stuck with a roommate (fortunately not my circumstance but could be an issue for others).

The location is convenient to Marta and there are a few good spots for lunch (Mellow Mushroom Pizza across the street) nearby but the surrounding neighborhood is very dead and it's a few blocks from ATL sites if visiting for fun.

Thanks for your review! I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at W Atlanta Downtown. It’s also good to know that our talent made you feel welcome. We want W Atlanta Downtown to be your home away from home. Thanks for your comments on the shower in some of our king-bedded rooms. We realize that this set up isn’t for everyone so we have plenty of rooms with two queen beds to accommodate our guests that are sharing. These rooms have a door that separates the bathroom from the bedroom and the glass wall in the shower is opaque. For even more privacy, many guests opt for the Cool Corner room or a Studio Suite both of which have a private bath/shower. Hopefully, on your next visit you will be able to enjoy some of our fabulous amenities including BLT Steak, Drinkshop and Bliss Spa. Thank you for choosing W and we look forward to welcoming you back!

This is in a great spot for walking to cola and CNN but there are limited bars and restaurants nearby. Our room was spacious clean and stylish. Breakfast in the bar was sufficient and the courtesy car drop off useful. Parking is expensive and there are many other alternatives close by. I would ask for a room away from the ice machine as they are noisy.

The W is extremely stylish, with great service. The lobby and rooms are very comfortable. There is free wifi in the lobby. It's a fun place to stay.
My only word of caution is that I would say that the W Downtown is perfect if you have business downtown. If you are visiting Atlanta for fun, then there are probably more interesting neighborhoods. The hotel was great, and it was a great location for me (because I had business in the area). But the immediate area seemed to be lacking.
Another piece of advice: the showers are very cool, but offer limited privacy, so if you are sharing a room and are shy, you might want to think twice or ask the hotel if they have rooms with different layouts.

This hotel is very handy to the Civic station when coming into the city from the airport. Note: the train is very easy to use. Just look for the Mantra signs after picking up your luggage, buy a ticket at the vendor machine and you can get to the platform by escalator. Hotel is all dark and funky in reception and looks cool but so is the receptionist - processed my booking and gave me the ticket without a smile. Rooms ok but no free Internet which was bad given the cost of the room. Worst of all there was no hot water - late at night or early next day. I had to skip my shower and wash my hair in cold water to get to work. When I raised this at the desk the girl couldn't care less. I was on floor 12. Maybe the lower floors ok. Try the Weston in Peachtree.
