Stayed at The Ellis 4/22-4/24 for a national real estate developers' convention in part due to its #2 ranking on Trip Advisor. WELL DESERVED! As a real estate developer, I'm sensitve to location and, these days, value, and The Ellis is remarkable: caddy corner from the Ritz-Carlton and a block along Peachtree Street from the Westin cylindrical tower, both hotels at least twice as expensive as The Ellis and FOR WHAT?! I'm also an architect and the Westin is still the 70's Portman fortress that it's always been, the Ritz is "sumptuously traditional" but The Ellis is clean, contemporary, airy and most welcoming. The architectural "friendliness" is matched by the smiling and capable staff, one of whom graciously printed more boarding pass and relieved the stress of my departure. The Ellis' restaurant is similarly open (and has an outdoor terrace cantilevered over Peachtree Street, much like the Ritz) and was a great venue for an impromtu lunch with a fellow convention-attendee, almost immediately after check-in. My room was comfy (excellent mattress, bedding, etc.) and had turn-down service @ no extra charge from cheerful, though unobtrusive housekeeping staff. Bathroom was new with excellent finishes.
My only complaints: the fabulous Sirius radio soul music station greeting one in the lobby was unavailable in my room and my TV remote was possibly dysfunctional - I actually had to get up and manually change the sports channels.
