An oasis in downtown Atlanta
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.
Highlights
  • BLT Steak restaurant, specializes in enticing steak and other recipes
  • Whatever/Wherever service is ready meet requests (as long as they’re legal)
  • Outdoor heated pool and sundeck with spectacular view of downtown Atlanta
  • SWEAT fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio and weight equipment
  • Acura Experience – tour the city with a personal driver in a decked-out SUV
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.
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.

Atlanta W Downtown

Hotel staff was not knowledgeable or helpful with directions and/or activities in the Atlanta area. We were told that there was no concierge, since the previous one left. The person filling in gave us incorrect directions and caused much frustration when we were lost and wandering in the Atlanta heat. The only saving grace was the Acura driver, Frank, who went out of his way to drive us to and from dinner and give us recommendations for restaurants and locations to visit. The rooms were often without toiletries unless specifically requested.

Wisteria restaurant was excellent. The Shakespeare Tavern had a wonderful play and traditional British food. This was excellent dinner-theater.

Review of W Hotel Downtown Atlanta, GA

Arrived at the hotel on Saturday morning at around 1:00AM local time. Initially passed the hotel, thinking it was a night club. Several dozen college age kids in front of the main entry, dressed in party clothing. They were loud and many were under the influence of alcohol. The check in lobby, relatively small, was filled with the same crowd (I had to fight my way through). The front desk person who helped me check in was friendly. I was asked by one of the girls (quite flirtatious from being drunk, if any) in the elevator, if she could check out my room in the 15th floor. The room was clean and well kept. Poor sound proofing, perhaps. Could not sleep much because of the sporatic loud noise coming from the hallway (from the same party crowd). Saturday night was not as bad; but there was another party at night, and there were a lot of noise through out the night. I informed the front desk person of my experience on Saturday. He was apologetic and offered to move me to a dffierent floor. I did not want to bother.

Hotel has a great contemporary air about it, but the rooms were small and dark. Awful bathroom space!

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!
