This was my 3rd time at the Ellis and for a downtown Atlanta hotel for the rates they offer, it was very good. There are areas that need fine tuning for sure (in 4 days housekeeping forgot to remove my breakfast tray once and never left caffeinated coffee for the little coffee maker, room service forgot my morning coffee once and another time forgot the mug). It was all sorted out quickly and painlessly though. I prefer the rooms at the front (ending in 07), I had one back in December where the AC/heating was on all the time and the shower only had HOT water, no cold but they moved me out to another (better) room as soon as I mentioned it to them.
Whilst they're not perfect I really appreciate that they're not part of a chain, their rates are excellent, I love the location and I feel they do try. The bistro has great food (would love some additional gluten free options) and excellent service. I tried getting around the $20+ per day valet charge by parking the car myself in the same parking structure down the street and it was the SAME PRICE!! There's just not a lot of parking options downtown and I noticed other, larger, chain hotels also charge similar rates. The hotel is perfectly situated to get to the plethora of wonderful restaurants and bars due east in Inman Park area (just 8 mins away) or the freeway for going north or south. I see no reason to go anywhere else and will continue to stay there whenever I'm in Atlanta (frequently).
