We arrived late on Saturday evening, the staff was very helpful, the only reason that I can't give it 5 stars is because the parking lot was full and we had to park a block away. It was rather inconvenient. I suggest parking be reserved for guests first.
The hotel was supposedly under renovation for the time I booked it, although I didn't see any evidence of it in my tower. Because of the renovation, I was able to get a King Corner Suite for less than a standard room at nearby hotels. It was well worth it. It was clean and well maintained. It also ...
Easy access. Very pleasant employees including Dominique, the bartender who remembered me even though I hadn’t been back in 3 months. Room needs work. Mattress is very old and has acquired uneven levels. A/C worked but just to get it livable, had to set it at 65. I’m usually shivering at 67. Breakfast ...
We came for braves game. Nice not to have to find parking and get in the traffic before and after the game. We were back in our room 20 minutes after game. We ate at the pool before the game. Delicious hamburger.
Elevators were not working so we had to climb stairs that were outside and my fiance was not wearing the appropriate shoes for climbing stairs. It was inconvenient. Wish they had a microwave/fridge. That would have been nice for leftover food from our dining.
The staff is always helpful. When i checked out, the receptionist explained my bill to me and said that I had charged a beverage to the room. I told her that i only went to the bar on Friday night and i paid with my card. She immediately took it of the bill. They do an excellent job. I will be ...
Everything was excellent except that after the first night, the cleaning staff removed ALL the soap (some of which I'd left to use again) from my room and did not leave me any new soap so I had no way to wash my hands or take a shower until the front desk staff brought me new soap around midnight. I was already in my PJ's when I realized there was no soap in my room so had to wait about 2 hours for someone to bring soap to my room. Very frustrating to say the least! At least there was shampoo so I used that to wash my hands after using the bathroom.
This was are first vacation and we love it.. Everyone was nice and helpful..
Slightly outdated but friendly staff and quiet experience. Despite being an airport hotel, I was not disturbed by any noise.
I felt real safe it was quite I will stay there again the view in the room I stay in was real nice
Georgia's first city and arguably the ‘capital of the South,’ Atlanta is a city where you can spy a beluga whale or giant panda cub, delight in everything from fusion fine dining to a burrito from Sweet Auburn Curb Market, and learn about where the much-loved soda comes from at World of Coca-Cola. With its blend of Southern Yankee charm and dynamic style, Atlanta appeals to business travelers staying Downtown, but those who want to tour both Civil War and civil rights history can still have their fill with the Atlanta Cyclorama museum and Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site.
Zoo Atlanta is home to well over 1,500 animals, set in the sprawling Victorian design of Grant Park, hence the animal attraction's original name of Grant Park Zoo. The biggest draw is often the resident pandas, though a varied line-up of everything from elephants to chameleons also brings in the family crowds. With the zoo sitting alongside Civil War museum Atlanta Cyclorama, guests can spend a whole day pleasing everyone in the family in Grant Park.
Marvel at the wide array of marine life, activities and educational programs offered by the Georgia Aquarium on the north side of Centennial Olympic Park, and try to squeeze in a dolphin show if there’s time. Feel like getting out on the water yourself? Visit Lake Lanier around an hour north of the city, for a solo fishing trip or some family time around the bonfire.
Head to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History to learn all kinds of fascinating things about dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. If you're more into contemporary art and photography, be sure to visit Ferst Center for the Arts. There's even a museum designed specifically for children: Children's Museum of Atlanta, with an emphasis on learning through colorful and creative workshops and play-zones. And don't miss the tempting tasting rooms at the World of Coca-Cola.
Six Flags is where those with a healthy craving for thrill rides should go, though there are plenty of underage options for younger visitors. The Acrophobia is a freefall tower that you'll never forget; it's merciless but unbelievably fun. Aside from rides, Six Flags offers tons of restaurants, souvenir shops and games. If you need a break from the heat, head for White Water, a theme park filled with epic water rides guaranteed to soak you through and cool you down.
You'll find a number of well-known sports teams in town, including the Braves, Falcons and Hawks. Make time for an exciting ballgame at the Phillips Arena. The basketball skills of the Hawks are also on display here, as well as international music and television stars that include the likes of Oprah Winfrey.
Located approximately eight miles south of downtown, the HartsfieldJackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is the world's busiest airport. However, it is very accessible and within a mile you'll find numerous Atlanta hotels, including Marriott Gateway Atlanta Airport, the Days Inn Airport Best Road and the SpringHill Suites Atlanta Airport Gateway. If you're staying Downtown or in Buckhead, use MARTA rapid rail transport direct from the airport.
You can also travel to Atlanta and get around by train, with the national rail station at Peachtree Center and the Amtrak station at Peachtree Street N.W, allowing you to jump on and off the network of buses and local trains throughout the city.
If you have the choice, plan your trip to Atlanta in late May. This time of year is summery without being too hot, and many concerts and other fun-filled activities get underway. The subtropical climate means that things can get humid here later in the year, with temperatures well into the 90s. Avoid thunderstorms and windier weather by coming in the relatively calm and dry autumn.
