This hotel is in Buckhead which is an up market suberb of Atlanta.Having spent 3 days in Atlanta I was very pleased that we chose to stay in this part of the city rather than downtown or midtown. The hotel was very convenient for the Atlanta History Centre and the excellent Lennox Square shopping mall and it only took 10 or 15 minutes to get to down town or to Turner Field.
This was our first stop on our arrival from the UK.I had booked two standard rooms, one for us and the other for our 3 teenagers. I didn't mind if they were not next door to us as long as we were on the same floor. Nevertheless the very helpful and pleasant receptionist gave us 2 large interconnecting rooms which ended up feeling like a large suite that had masses of room for all of our luggae. The rooms were beautifully appointed and housekeeeping standards were high. Our room with a king bed was great but if I was being very very picky then I would say that the other room which had 2 queens did not have a lot of spare space.
We had room service for supper and this was very good. The public areas are light airy and relaxing. Although this is probably more of a business rather than leisure hotel the outdoor pool is quite large and there are plenty of loungers around it. We had an excellent breakfast in the dining room where the service was very good. The decor in the dining room is quite individualistic but this doesn't detract from the quality of the food and service. We spent 2 nights here and then moved to the Wyndham Wingate which was half the price but nowhere near as good.
