We picked this hotel for location and it was perfect for that. My husband was running the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon, and I was going as a spectator. My husband arrived first via Marta and checked in while I was still at work, so I can't report on this process. He did go up to the SkyLounge to check it out and said it was nice, but was crowded when he left. When I arrived (late) after work, I went to the lobby bar to try one of the yummy cocktails and bring back to my room. I got the "My Yellow Sunshine" drink with grapefruit infused tequila, St. Germain, pineapple, and lemon. It was delicious and came in a cool glass. The room was small for American standards, but typical size if you are used to traveling in Europe. The bathroom is spacious with nice amenities. The bed was super comfortable as well. We had a room on the back side of the hotel, so my husband said the trains woke him up a few times. Soundproofing not as good as other hotels. After my husband started the race I went back to the room to get ready for work and the shower did not have hot water (but the sink did.). An engineer came quickly to replace the shower valve (30 min process) but then it was fixed. This would have been no big deal, but I was pressed for time to get back to the finish line. The staff reacted quickly and managed the problem with professionalism. They also had free coffee, fruit, and granola bars for the racers and guests in the lobby in the morning. They said the coffee and fruit was a daily thing and the granola bars were special for the marathon. Nice touch. Checkout was easy. Had to pay for valet for my car, even though the attendant wasn't available when I arrived and I parked myself (self parking also costs $28.) All overnight parking in Atlanta is expensive, though.
Overall, a good experience. Would stay there again for the AAA rate for proximity and amenities. Gave it only 4 out of 5 for the train noise, and shower problem. Next time we will request a room along Marietta street and will hopefully upgrade this hotel to a 5.
