“The Ellis, Posh Atlanta Gem”
Reviewed 21 January 2009

My husband and I traveled to Atlanta to visit family over the Thanksgiving holidays and stayed at the Ellis for three nights. We loved it and would return without hesitation! It is very unassuming from the outside- a historical building in the financial part of town. But inside, it is very elegant, hip and chic. The hotel staff were extremely friendly, the southern hospitality they kept reminding us of, and couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was beautiful and I loved the fact that there were windows that actually opened in our bathroom and room. Our room was flanked by walls of windows on two sides! The view was terrific! The bathroom was beautiful and had an incredible shower with a rain head. I never wanted to leave. We didn't have a chance to eat in the restaurant, but the bar is cozy and they have these martinis that will quench your thirst and do you in! There's a few attractions within walking distance, but we did rent a car to allow us to hit places like Atlantic Station, Buckhead and the Virginia Highlands.

I love The Ellis. We went last night just to get away. We stayed the night before at the W Midtown. The Ellis was far better and superior. The staff was extremely professional and helpful with every detail. They spent time to locate a Vegan/ Vegetarian restaurant for us. The bellmen that escorted us to the room gave us the history of hotel and recommendations on restaurants as well as filled our ice bucket.

Every comfort was thought of and provided. I would return again and again and recommend this to everyone.

A bride reserved a block at the Ellis Hotel for her NYE event. It was wonderful. From check in to check out, the staff could not have been more attentive. The location is convenient (across the street from a subway station). The valet, Antwon, was really funny and interesting. We'll definitely stay there again.

We stayed overnight at the Ellis a few days after Christmas for an anniversary getaway. It was fabulous. The staff was very proessional and helpful. The room was spotless. The bed had six pillows of all different types and you could request more of whichever you prefered. The bed itself was firm with a thick soft mattress pad and luxe cotton sheets. We had the corner room on the top floor and it had a great view with windows on two sides of the room and beautiful room darkening shades...we slept until nearly ten! The bathrom was perfectly lovely. There were lots of bath towels and a hairdryer - no need to request. An iron and ironing board in the room was also very considerate. We had no problem with the wireless connection in the room - woked great.
There are lots of restaurants on Peachtree within walking distance bt we were tired and decided to just eat spper at the in house restaurant, the estreet grille. The restaurant was suprisingly great. We knew it would be high and it was :) but no higher than anywhere else on Peachtree. My husband and I both ate for a little over 30 bucks. And Tony sent us a free drink since we were there for our anniversary. The food was really excellent - selection was limited but the service was impecable. We actually had the place to ourselves and our server was there the second we needed anything without interrupting us or hovering. We ordered room service the next morning and it was also quite good and very nicely served.
Overall we were very impressed. I especially appreciated that they went above and beyond fulilling my requests. It was a great night and we can't wait to go back.

  • Liked — very sophisticated and soothing
  • Disliked — the receptionist at checkout was tad bit curt - the checkin experience with the front desk was excellent though

We stayed at The Ellis for 3 days in October & thoroughly enjoyed our stay here ,from the minute we arrived to when we left all the staff were extremely welcoming ,friendly & could'nt be more helpful with advice & even loaning us umbrellas for a trip out.
The rooms are very well appointed with all the usual facilities & very clean.
We cannot recommend this hotel more highly.

I stayed at The Ellis last week when I was in town on business. Getting there from the airport was very easy as the hotel sits directly atop the Peachtree Street MARTA station. A $4.00 roundtrip ticket will get you from the airport and back.

The front desk staff and doormen were very welcoming on check-in and the lobby was very nice and contemporary in style. Since I was alone in town on business, I decided to stay on the women's only floor. The room itself was very nice with a large bed, plenty of pillows, a wall of windows with both sheer and heavy curtains to block out the light, a flat-screen TV, and work desk with chair. Overall, the room was very comfortable and very clean.
The bathroom was on the small side but had modern fixtures and was impeccably clean as well. The shower had very nice tile with one of those big shower heads. Also in the bathroom were an included hair dryer, flat iron, curling iron, and robe. Maybe this was a "women's only floor" kind of thing, but it was certainly a nice touch.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay very much. The hotel was very nice, modern, clean, and the staff were very helpful with all requests. I would definitely stay here again.

TIP: just down the street about 1-2 blocks is the Landmark Diner open 24 hours. Great NYC type of place with good food and desserts at great prices.

In a world of chain hotels, I always try to stay at the independent places. I'm not all that interested in Reward points or Honor points, or whatever. More I like to see something that's not generic.

The Ellis is definitely a nice place if a bit small. Modern design and decor, super nice staff, central location would be all the plusses.

If you fly into Atlanta, are looking to stay downtown, and trying to get away without a car rental (tough to do in Atlanta), the Ellis is a good choice. A MARTA stop is literally across the street. And the hotel is positioned within walking distance to various restaurants downtown.

There was no wireless internet, but a fairly capable hardwired connection in my junior suite.

The beds were comfortable. Everything was very clean. The thermostat in the room was a bit of pain to figure out but eventually got it working.

All in all, it's a safe, if not unspectacular, place to stay in downtown Atlanta.
