“Good enough for the superstars of literature”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

To start with, we spied a pair of fiction writer superstars at breakfast. This is a marker of how upscale this hotel is. I will not reveal their names, but you've no doubt seen them at the entrance to any bookstore.
Curbside to bedside the place fairly oozed opulence surroundings at affordable (for us anyway) rates. Given that it sits in a highly developed residential, commercial, educational, and research area of Atlanta, it quieter than I imagined, landscaped better than expected, and felt more remote than it is.
Our first room was disappointing. (That does not bode well does it?) The mission influence desk had broken pieces hanging on for dear life. I put the set point temperature on 74°F and we went for a walk in the hot Georgia sun in the Lullwater Estate's garden, a real rare jewel of an estate. Ask the staff for directions, and there is no parking at the estate so you will have to walk.
Upon our return an hour later, the temperature had not dropped. I called the front desk and asked for another room which the first reply was to offer to send up a maintenance person. (I was a maintenance person at Emory Hospital just down the street.) I declined and we were promptly assigned another room. The a/c worked just fine there but its a poor installation partially behind the curtains allowing the discharge air blow near the thermostat causing the sensor to assume the room has reached set temperature before it actually does. Moving the curtain away from the discharge achieved the desired results and makes for a memorable stay.
Parking is $10 for the night and is very limited. If you fly into Atlanta and take public transportation or taxi to the motel there is car rental on site.
Breakfast buffet, well its a buffet, well stocked but a buffet. The custom made vegie omelet was very tasty. I loved the well cooked and tasty pork sausage too much. Priced for the pair of us was $25 USD.
There are several restaurants and bars within walking distance of the Center at Emory Point, a residential, office, commercial, bar and restaurant place. Emory Point and Emory Conference Center are on the same side of Clifton Road. Right now, September 2014, it will involve having to cross a busy commercial four lane road at the crosswalk, then re-cross again a block away. There is commercial building going on that blocks the Emory sidewalks to Emory Point. I'd guess the sidewalk will definably be accessible within a year if not sooner. Maybe there will be a walking trail between the two later. We took our vehicle. Parking was free that night but may not be free other times.
Question: Would we return? Yes very much so before considering any others.

The people running this hotel make sure you are treated like royalty during your entire stay with them. My sister and I were immediately greeted by Mr. Leotis Watson, a perfect gentleman with excellent customer service. Mr. Leotis went beyond and above the call of duty to make sure we were settled in and had everything we needed. He greeted us every day by our names and offered his assistance always. We were next greeted by Mr. Gabriel in the Coffee Shop Dining Room. He too, another perfect gentleman with excellent customer service and a great since of humor who gave us a warm welcome which made us want to keep going back for more. Also the food was wonderful. There were two more outstanding gentleman with great customer service in the Club Bar, Mr. Albert and Mr. J. Brown who were so accommodating during the two great meals we had there. Rooms were spotless and comfortable. Everyone at the front desk were courteous and concerned about our welfare. Mr. Hurschell, another perfect gentleman packed our luggage from our room right into our car professionally and courteously and took care of our room keys as we left. This hotel and it's employees are the closest hotel to being perfect. It is highly recommended by my sister, Sheila King and I. I hope we are able to stay here in September when she returns to Emory Hospital. Thank you all for your wonderful hospitality. May God bless each and everyone of you.

Most Sincerely,
Deborah Tiller

This is not your typical hotel. It's really a conference center. If there's a big meeting going on it doesn't bother us. We like it here. They have finally put a coffee maker in the rooms, and we've learned to bring something with us for breakfast. The coffee shop breakfast is a buffet, and more than we want. The rooms are well appointed and quiet. The staff is great. Parking is underneath in a garage, and they now charge $10.00 a night parking fee. It's a good block or two walk from the parking to your room, but it's a nice walk.

Staying at the hotel was great, the room was very comfortable and the facilities are nice and clean. The best part of the hotel are the staff, they are all very kind, friendly, ready to help and with a smile in their faces. Customer service is definitely what makes the hotel a great place to stay. The restaurant has very good food and there are other nice restaurants within a walking distance.

Mr. Leotis Watson (Concierge) was the first person and the last person I encountered when I arrived and departed the Emory Hotel. He is a great ambassador for the hotel. He made me feel welcome when I arrived and he made me feel appreciated when I departed.

The Front Desk staff were friendly and efficient. Always with a smile and a warm greeting.

Dustin (bartender) in The Club Lounge was friendly, efficient, and attentative.

I highly recommend this hotel.

I booked this hotel 2 hours from Atlanta because we needed a one night stay during our travels. Was worried about booking blind, but the price was great, so we hoped it was a good place. It was great! The location is awesome; the staff were very friendly. Room was very nice and clean; beds were good too. Only downside was having to park in a garage and get charged and extra $10 to park for the night. This should be rolled into the price of the hotel or validate for patrons of the hotel. Would definitely stay here again if we have the chance!
