“Expected more”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Since my high school class chose this as the headquarters hotel for our 50th reunion, I had expected a little more. The staff was certainly pleasant and the room was alright, but the hallways were a little tatty and smelled musty. Most travelers won't have the opportunity to use their catering, but I must say the food for our class reception was just okay.

Though I prefer boutique hotels, I enjoyed my stay here. My room was very comfortable and spacious, and I had a corner room with a small balcony.

The bathroom was also spacious and the toiletries were quality.

I was here for a meeting and especially appreciated that the conference rooms have windows overlooking a beautiful ravine.

I casually mentioned to my dad that I was staying at the Emory Conference Center Hotel and surprisingly, he knew of the place and he had stayed there in the past. He mentioned that it was like a dorm and hotel hybrid and he was right. That is, until we saw roaches cross the floor of the game room and then again the next morning in the conference room. I think that tipped the place over to the dorm side.

At the hotel for a conference, the meeting rooms were spacious and the dining hall was comfortable. There was a plethora of food available at each meal in a buffet fashion and the waiters were delightfully refilling drinks and bussing the tables. The food was better than average and for the amount of people for whom they were cooking, I was impressed by the variety.

The rooms on the other hand were old and dated. They urgently need some remodeling. The decor reminded me of the 1980's with wicker chairs and shiny comforters.

The Emory Conference Center Hotel is located far from the airport and away from the center of town. It's a little pricey for what they're charging, they should invest in a little renovation and pest control.

Dear Maisha R,
Thank you for staying with us during your recent trip to Atlanta. We are truly grateful to have had you as our guest and are disheartened to hear about some of your experiences. I wanted to let you know that I have shared your comments with our pest control company, as well as with the managers over these areas in hopes that we can eliminate any future occurrences. I also wanted to let you know that we are in the planning stages of renovating our north wing guest rooms, which will include all new furniture, carpet, safes, additional outlets, etc. We have already installed the new mattresses and box springs and the new refrigerators will be here at the end of this week. We hope that once we have completed these, that you will give us another shot. Thank you again and we hope to make it up to you soon!

This is a really nice hotel. We had many rooms and there were lots of places for our party to gather. Albert in The Club (local lounge) was so nice, he felt like part of the family. We put several tables together to play cards and the staff was so nice not to make us feel we were doing anything wrong or feel uncomfortable taking up room there). Ashley at the Check in & Out was really sweet & helpful. At the work out center they were out of disinfecting wipes for the machines and Ashley found us some till housekeeping could go fix the situation. The pool water did look a bit murky in the indoor pool and the bowling lanes were only open when a private party was in there so we didn't get to use either. However the ground were great, well situated, walking distance to shopping/great food options as well as Fairmont park. Bus stops were nearby if we needed to go further (didn't try but thought it was convenient). My son & his wife took the MARTA Train in from the airport to a station not too far from hotel (we picked them up took about 11 min) and they could have taken the bus the rest of the way. Overall a great time.

Room Tip: We had room 3360 was quite a bit smaller than the rest of our party in 4494, 1161, 3396..but still n...

I had a wonderful 3-day stay at this hotel. Staff was vey charming and polite. Have to thank the guy who coodinates the shuttle who helped deliver my luggage to the CDC building while I was in a meeting. Lots of neat restaurants near-by within walking distances. You can take leisure walks in their wooded backyard.

Dear Ragini2014,
Thank you for the kind five star review of the Emory Conference Center Hotel in regards to your recent trip to Atlanta! We are glad to see that you were able to enjoy the convenience of the Emory Point shopping district, as well as being so close to the CDC main entrance. We are also glad that you were able to enjoy Hahn Woods! It is definitely a luxury to have so many wooded acres as our back yard, considering we are only a few miles from Downtown Atlanta. Thank you again and we hope to have you back again soon!

I have stayed at this hotel for a total of 24 nights over the past 3 years, and it is always a pleasant experience. The staff is warm and welcoming. The front desk staff always greet you with a smile, the guy who coordinates the shuttle is always friendly and accommodates your needs, and the guy who drives the shuttle (not sure of his name) is always so sweet. My hotel room is always spotless when I check in. I have always needed a fridge due to extended stays, and if available they bring it to my room if I request it. The grounds are beautiful, the bar is a cute place to mingle with colleagues. They have free coffee on the bottom floor in the mornings. You can use the Emory gym. Emory Pointe, which has shops and restaurants within walking distance. The CDC is within walking distance. This place is just the best! No complaints here. Always an excellent experience.
