We were pleased to find this hotel through Trip Advisor when making arrangements for the SEC Championship game in Atlanta. The hotels near the dome were outrageously priced and we didn't necessarily want to be right in the noisy thick of things. This hotel is five Marta stops away from the World Congress Center and the Marta station is literally across the street. Plus, the High Museum is within walking distance so if you have some free time, it's easy to duck in and see an exhibit. (There's not much else right next door so you'll need car, Marta or taxi for restaurants and nightlife.)
The hotel itself has been beautifully renovated with a modern art deco sort of theme. The small bar just off the lobby is condusive to making friends and the service was great. There is also a beautiful courtyard with outside seating and heat lamps for cool evenings.
The rooms are large - ours had a bar counter with underneath fridge, mini-bar and microwave. The welcome info said the whole hotel was wireless but I had trouble finding a network and did not have time to try the wired version, so I can't speak to the internet service.
There were a few negatives - our bathroom was very small (but well thought out as far as providing hooks, shelves and as much space as possible). We had to run only hot water in the shower and then it was still not quite as hot as I would like, but it never got cool, so maybe that is a safety setting. The beds and linens are not the Westin -- but we didn't pay close to Westin prices, either. There was a coffeemaker and Starbucks coffee available in the room at minibar prices. They also have a breakfast buffet downstairs for a flat fee.
All in all, we had a great stay and felt like we enjoyed a real bargain compared to what others were paying. I would recommend this hotel highly.
