I stayed at the Ellis on the weekend of the 12th. It was rainy, windy, and cold which made staying in bed an incentive - thus my title :). The staff was pleasant and the interior was modern. I travel a lot so the hotel was nothing to write home about. It's the typical boutique hotel with a backstory of having ghosts. We spoke to management (who were friendly by the way) about the ghost stories. They said they were aware of the stories but no one experienced anything personally.
I enjoyed laying around in the bed so much. The only con was the phone to our room wasn't working. We didn't notice until it was time to order room service. We went down to the hotel's restaurant for breakfast - which was really great. The night before they had a free wine tasting. Their wines were awful - cheap. Nonetheless, the waiters were very attentive - Keith provided great service when we went to breakfast.. Excellent service!
Overall the hotel was clean, trust me I'm picky. As soon as I get into a hotel room I'm checking the sheets, bathroom, floors, etc. I got nothing - which was a plus. The hotel doesn't seem seem ideal for children, more of a couple's or single traveler's hotel. The mini bar was on a tray that contained - organic goodies, water, and chocolate body paint.
One bit of advice don't get a room by the elevator but that's just common sense. My boyfriend booked the room by the elevator and we could hear people talking and getting off and on while we were awake. The hotel is located conveniently by the train in the downtown Atlanta. We were one block away from Rays in the City - excellent food and service as well.
