W Atlanta - Buckhead
Ranked #60 of 173 Hotels in Atlanta
Reviewed 8 October 2009

Great hip place for those younger business travelers. great lobby with good music playing, cool staff, great pool area. Very casual and laid back staff so dont ask them to jump. The rooms were very fresh and crisp, cool tv's, phones, and fast internet. Great mini bar too. I always will stay at the W in ATL.

We swear the W Midtown is a secret sex dungeon. Our first visit to W Buckhead, after getting past the realization that we were not in an Abercrombie and Fitch store, was that this former Holiday Inn got a Queer Eye for a Tired old Hotel makeover. The rooms are all the same, Wonderful or Spectacular, although I imagine the suites are different. We decided the rooms look like a gay submarine. The peep glass to the bathroom is weird, not as bad as the wooden blinds in the W Lakeshore in Chicago, but strange...your friends will take pictures of you, if they are like my friends.

The Whiskey Bar upstairs keeps the porte cochere full of glamouratti wannabees. It is actually a pain to get in and out of the hotel on a Saturday night. As always, the beds are comfortable, the rooms are a touch small, the pool is very small, but the valet is on the spot.

This hotel has an advantage, be it the opening in bad economic times or what, but you can get rooms here for nothing compared to the other hotels in Buckhead. Just be ready for the 24 hour dance party, don't get near an elevator, too close to the top floors, or near my room. The Westin in next door, and you can walk to Lenox or Phipps. Midtown and Buckhead are at your fingertips. Try it once, if you like it, go back...if not, stay at the Westin next time.

I've stayed here 3 times, it isn't my first choice, but when they have a great deal...I'll be here.

We stayed here for a one night getaway from the kids. The staff is very friendly and the location is great for restaurants and shopping. The rooftop bar is nice for sitting outside and enjoying the evening (drinks are pricey though). Parking is $30. The rooms were disappointing in their blandness. There was nothing that said "wow" like I expect at the W. That said, beds are very comfortable and bathrooms are clean, albeit very tiny!! For us this was a free night we earned as SPG members, but if I had paid for it I would have been a little disappointed for the price.

Rooms are small, bathrooms are tiny, no tub.
The hotel has a "coolness" about it ... but to the extreme.
Everything is overpriced.
Staff were friendly & helpful.
Moved to the Intercontinental after 2 nights, a great place to stay in Buckhead!

Hotel has a club attached and booms the bass until 3am on weekends (fridays too). I am sure that is fine if you attend the club and are out to party. If you aren't, you'll be awake. Lobby is also converted with a lounge with loud music, ugh.
Rooms are just okay, nothing great. Quirky style, nice location next to the mall. Poor access to self parking (have to walk to the Westin).

The W met "W" expectations in every way. Friendly greetings the entire length of the stay, front desk very pleasant, there is a great rooftop bar/lounge that is extremely happenning, concierge recommended a wonderful restaurant for our purposes, close to the MARTA, close to shopping. Room was clean and luxurious, there was lack of storage space, but that is the W's concept (minimalist) - wonderful bath products, very clean gym with extra amenities such as cold wet towels, sanitary wipes, headphones - would absolutely return to this hotel if ever in atlanta again

Genuinely friendly staff surprised me! Mostly one person I dealt with the most Karen. What a breath of fresh air this young lady was. Very quiet, clean, comfortable, well appointed, great continental breakfast, fast service, very hospitable staff. Will stay there again.
