Came to this hotel for a wedding and were received very well by the staff. We rented 4 rooms and were accommodated with 2-sets of adjoining rooms. It was fun to look across the lobby, out of our room's window, to see the others in our party! The grandchildren liked this the most. All venues we went to were very...

I should preface by stating I am a Hilton Diamond Elite member and spend approx 100 nights a year in Hilton hotels. I never look elsewhere, except this trip when I scheduled meetings in south Atlanta and didn't have options with my usual hotel chain. This hotel is fantastic. The service is friendly, accommodations clean and newly renovated. And the...

Excellent location. One minute walk to Decatur square and main street, teeming with every choice of restaurant/ diner/bar/cafe/ shops. And of course the MARTA station to whisk us downtown Atlanta.

Great location and outstanding service mark this hotel. Otherwise the price to quality offer is mediocre. You can do better in the downtown or midtown areas. On the negative side expect one paper thin towel per person in the room, cheap and limited amenities, no room safe, low speed internet, etc. In other words, an expensive Motel 6 with a...

Great location, but the front desk was not friendly at all when I arrived. The room was nice, but the walls were paper thin, to the point where I could hear the person next door talking in the phone. Overall not awful, but I would probably look to stay somewhere else next time.
