The W Atlanta – Downtown hotel bills itself as an urban oasis in the heart of downtown Atlanta. The hotel is stylishly designed with a mix of light and colors that seems to take just a little of the heat out of Hot-Lanta. With vibrant restaurants serving anything from snacks to American and French cuisine to the outdoor pool with the spectacular view of downtown, this hotel has anything guests need to get stimulated and productive, and easily help them chill out. The convenient downtown location puts the entire city right outside the doorstep.
Rooms
The W Atlanta – Downtown hotel offers a wider range of rooms than many other W hotels. It offers eight different styles of rooms and suites ready to soothe guests with plush carpeting and Makassar wood. All of the rooms feature the signature W bed, with down comforters and goose-down duvets. Once guests are re-invigorated, the rooms provide all of the high-tech amenities needed to get wired. Each room has a plasma TV, iPod docking station, data port and DVD/CD player. All rooms have wired and Wi-Fi Internet access. The bathrooms include the refreshing rainforest shower. Accessible rooms are available along with knock lights and TDD phones. For those traveling with a pet, order a signature W pet bed. Cribs are available upon request.
Property features
Even with the W’s ability to dazzle senses, it’s the service that really makes the difference with this hotel. There’s nothing out there quite like the W’s Whatever/Wherever service. When a guest makes a request, the W Atlanta – Downtown hotel staff is ready to make it happen. Another unique feature is the Acura Experience. Guests tour the city in a decked-out SUV, with a professional driver, all for free. The business-friendly atmosphere also is exceptional. The Wired business center offers PC and Mac workstations, laptops, wired and wireless Internet access, printers, scanners and telecommunications equipment.

business trip

wonderful staff. very helpful and sweet. very accommodating. I needed an i pod player for our trade show and they lent us one from the hotel. They welcomed us with candled, cup cakes and wine. Our car was brought down to us in seconds and the concierges were very helpful and had great recommendations. The lounge and bar was great and the spa services and staff was wonderful.

Five day stay, 1st time in Atlanta

Nice, clean hotel, helpful and friendly staff, good location. Somewhat disappointed that my package did not include WiFi, and, that room did not have a coffee maker, but, there was a coffee and pastry bar available on mezzanine floor. Did not have newspaper at door but okay as did have papers available in reception area. Also would have been nice to have a store for sundry items. Really not close to any significant restaurants. I would say good experience, but, if I return and now knowing the area I will certainly look at other venues.

Let's be honest.

Ok, let's be honest, you're paying for location. While the hotel staff was wonderful, the rooms are largely uncomfortable in their modern themes. The chaise lounge would make a good dog bed, but it's nothing that a real human could actually enjoy. Translucent bathroom walls are just weird. Some things should remain private. Be sure to shut the blinds if showering at night, or the whole city might get a good show. They could have also done a better job of soundproofing the whole place as well. You will enjoy the sounds of the city all night. On the other hand, we were two blocks from our event, and the hotel bar was open late. I'm not sure who hung all of the chaff from the ceiling, but I feel for the poor guy who has to clean all of that cluttered mess. It's just visually abusive. I know the W brand goes for swanky decor, but this one is just strangely over done. Overall, not worth the $300 nightly price... but it's big city living. If you want to be close to downtown, you'll pay for it, just don't expect anything special beyond the service. Kudos to the staff!
