I, with a business partner were there july 14-19/11. Thanks to trip advisor I decided to take the suggestion of using the marta system from the airport to the hotel.(1/2 hr.) What a super easy system to use, with such helpful Atlanta locals assisting without us even asking.Everyone should be like these super mannerly people, the world would be so awesome!
The exit from the Marta Station in Buckhead is 1 short block to the left upon entering the sidewalk to the hotel. Many other hotels as well are in the area. Restaurants, 3 malls are easy walking distance.
They have a shuttle which will take you to restaurants nearby, for just the tip of the driver, which were very friendly and mannerly.
The setup of the breakfast area, is very poor. This could be rectified with some common sense. To get to anything you end up backing out of the area into someone. so you have to be very careful manouvering around getting your items. alot of time is wasted backtracking, as well, as the layout is helter skelter. The food was okey.
The free drinks from 5.30 to 7.30pm is a nice touch. snacks is just junk food, sparse variety.
Pool areas- there are 2, one out and one in. very clean, good size, lots of comfy loungers on the outside one. we did not use the inside as it was super hot outside, with great sun. (loved an hour or so of relaxation after working all day)
The Rooms- HUGE, refrigerator, microwave, beds were super comfy, great linens. bathrooms perfect, towels thick, hairdryer, etc.
We will probably stay again, I will use my travel bible, tripadvisor to source out the other hotels in the area to see if the breakfast stacks up better.
All t he staff was super friendly, helpful, and mannerly, like all of Atlanta(or the people we met)
