Arrived at the end of September after a long flight from UK. Used the MARTA system to get from the airport which was easy and cheap to use. Came out the incorrect exit but had we come out the correct one The Ellis would have been right in front of us! Booking in very easy but when we arrived at our room we were disappointed because it overlooked a brick wall and even with all the lights on it was gloomy (room 505). Before we could ring Reception they were asking us what we thought of the room. Explained we were not impressed and they immediately (within 2 minutes) moved us to floor 14. Brilliant room because it was light. The room and en-suite were very clean. Only fault we could find with the room was that there was no safe although iron, ironing boards and free tea and coffee making facilities. It is the staff which truly make this hotel. It did not matter who you spoke to they were enthusiastic and wanted to help. We had breakfast in the hotel twice and it was a reasonable price and selection both the continental and cooked breakfast. If you want hot toast you only have to ask for it. The granola and fresh fruit were especially delicious as were the warm blueberry muffins.
Do not expect to be surrounded by places to shop as this is Downtown. Easy to use MARTA to get to Midtown and all the outlets/shops.
