Stayed 2 nights. Will be checking out in a few minutes. From our arrival on the whole stay was exceptional. Chanel at the front desk greeted us by name. Everything was clean and well maintained. Also, super close to Atlanta but feels like a small town.

Atlanta can be tricky, and if you are not careful you can end up in a bad part of town. I normally stay north of town, but I wanted to try somewhere that would allow me to walk around and have dinner tat evening. The area there around Emory has a small town university feel even though it is in...

Traveled for work and self-parked the vehicle. The parking garage is underground and pretty tiny so it would definitely be difficult to navigate in an SUV or truck. Staff was very friendly and welcoming.

JM - Thank you for taking the time to complete this review. I appreciate you sharing your experience. I want to apologize about the challenge with the layout and size of the parking garage. We continue to partner with the City of Decatur, who owns the parking garage, to develop some long term solutions. In the meantime, our staff works...

We booked a room for three nights, choosing this hotel for its proximity to relatives and the restaurants within walking distance. The location was perfect for us. The trendy courtyard was a bit cold and uninviting. When we got to our room there was an overpowering, eye-burning smell in our room that lasted until the next morning, and the windows...

The location is perfect for walking to many restaurants and checking out Decatur (eat at Parker on Ponce!) The front desk gave us a great walking map with all the attractions. It's a short drive to Emory. The inside rooms (5 floor hotel) look over the main lobby, bistro and computer areas. We had an outside room. When we waited...

Since we are Gold Elite members, our room was upgraded to a suite, and it was superb. Clean rooms, clean bathroom. The lobby is beautiful. We stayed here for three nights, and had no troubles at all. Parking is a little tight in terms of per square foot space, but I'm not sure if that's the hotel's fault...

I usually stay here when I visit my daughters who attend Emory. It is near the Marta station and walking distance to several restaurant options. I took advantage of the shuttle ride to Emory and had the great fortune of meeting Chris. He must be one the best hotel employees I have ever met. He drove my wife and me...

This hotel is well situated just opposite to our office in downtown Decatur within easy walking distance of a Starbucks and local shops/restaurants. Check-in was smooth and I was given a map of Decatur with a listing of said shops/restaurants.

Two of my better night's sleep. Very nice rooms, comfortable beds and easy to control temp in the room. I woke up feeling rested and relaxed. Great lobby and a very friendly staff. Was exactly what I needed for the weekend.
