My review of The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta

I got a room that had NOT been cleaned. There was water in Ice bucket (where the ice had melted) the cups were dirty. And the bathroom was not clean, there were human hairs in the shower and on the sink. I was Very dissatisfied with the hotel and I will Not be back. The location was ok, it was downtown.

Not a Five-Star Performance!

Hotel staff were pleasant. But hotel fell way short: check-in clerk was aware of the return discount we were entitled to, and did not receive the follow-up call the clerk promised, which made me have to go through unnecessary hassle; no robes in suite; no liner in ice bucket; bottled water in room had been opened; coffee maker was dirty with used coffee pouch still in it. I don’t have space here to give you any more examples. I think you get the picture.

just a place to hang your hat

It reminded me of a re-branded hotel taking over for another chain's miscues and leveraging its name to establish credibility without offering much of anything memorable.

Not up to Ritz Carlton standards

I was disappointed with this particular facility, the rooms and furnishings were very old. The price was Ritz Carlton like, although the facility and dining options were not.

From Chicago we visited Atlanta to Run a Marathon and Stayed at the Downtown Ritz Carlton. We were informed by the Ritz to take the Public Train (MARTA) from the Airport to the Hotel. This was a very unpleasant experiecne. The train goes thorugh some of Atlanta's most dangerous and impoverished neighborhoods. The Foul Mouth swearing and drunk and disorderly passangers on the train were very disturbing and placed us in fear. We had explained to the Ritz that we would have been happy to rent a limousine or pay for motor transportation. It is shocking the Ritz would suggest the Marta train and have our first experience be a visit to the Atlanta Ghetto and fear for saftey. This is an extremely bad move on the Ritz behalf.

Over rated

Compared to other hotels in the area, this hotel is not any special. The price is higher and the rooms and building are older. The lobby is small and nothing is going on on weekdays.

Final Four

Because of Final Four, the rooms were double what they normally are. The rooms are not great - small, old and the bathrooms have only one sink with almost no water pressure. Very good staff and very helpful.
