Historical Traveller Reviews of W Atlanta Midtown Hotel
Incredible Staff Make this a Special Wfrom nairobs
At the end of day, what differentiates Starwood (and this property in particular) is the level of customer service. Hearing that my wife was pregnant, the hotel not only placed a special body pillow in the room, but constantly asked about her and how they could make the stay more comfortable. I absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone and will stay here again in the future. They are having their grand opening later this week and will surely become one of the top places to stay in Atlanta.
A great weekend getaway...with a few hiccupsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
From the minute we pulled up in the driveway, I felt the buzz that you just don't get from a Marriott. Our check- was easy and Haja was quick to suggest a place for lunch. The "Wonderful" room on the 19th floor was stylish and the bed looked great and was super comfortable. Loved the selection of Bliss amenities. I got a 20% off coupon to use on Bliss products when I checked in and that definitely got used!
Overall, I thought housekeeping ("Stylists") was not up to par. I hate it when things are not done consistently from day to day. One day, the bed was made sloppily, the next day not all of the Bliss amenities were replenished and one another, the room wasn't made up until 5:00pm -- and the hotel was only 40% occupied. I was also awakened early on Monday morning by a woman who appeared to be from housekeeping (I don't think she spoke English) but she could tell that she woke me up and I was not very pleased. She apologized and left, so I don't even know what she wanted.
James Fay, one of the concierges, made some great suggestions and recommendations. We're more interested in eating and shopping than touring and James was able to point out interesting areas for us to check out.
The public spaces (lobby, patio and pool) are gorgeous. As others have mentioned, there is a serious lack of service in the pool area though - and some shaded area would be a nice touch.
Breakfast at Spice Market was so-so. Drinks in the Lobby Bar were creative with some interesting appetizers. We went to the Whiskey Bar, but I didn't care for the music ("Sweet Home Alabama??? ) so we didn't stay long, but if you like that kind of music, it was quite a scene.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would definitely go back. I've stayed at the Perimeter W, too, and I found Midtown to be preferable in terms of location.
Spectacular Hotel but Skip the Bliss Spafrom PeachGirl1
Great Time at the new Wfrom Nashman2
The staff couldn't have been more attentive from our walking in the door. Check-in was a breeze.
The renovations have been well done and the rooms are totally new.
The widescreen TV actually has a handful of HD channels.
My complaints are few; Getting into the hotel drive is a challenge in trying to turn accross the heavy 14th St traffic. A traffic light is just badly enough placed to makes easy entry impossible.
Also the room is shocked full of snacks and drinks, but everything, including bottles of water (@ $8.00), are way overpriced.
Cool Placefrom bstro202
I really liked it! It was very modern, funky, and cool so if you're looking for a Four-Seasons or Ritz-Carlton experience this is not for you...but I really enjoyed it because it was so different. Rooms were decorated with very high-quality materials, had a nice martini setup in the room when I got there, etc. And let me tell you about the service...talk about making sure that you're happy...at every step of the way these guys were all about service. Finishing touch was the valet bringing me an ice-cold bottle of spring water as I was given the keys to my car on a hot day.
Definately Recommend...it's an experience.
Very hip and cool even for the Wfrom EES_75
Drinks at the bar were good and all of the employees were really polite and helpful - and we had a lot of special requests due to some unexpected changes from airlines, etc. The hotel has a nice business center with all new Mac computers, although internet usage is not free.
Late night Mac & Cheese = highly recommended. The room service menu is on the tv.
Trying too hard to be coolfrom Travelnut1965
Typically not a fan of W BUT...from brand_trvlr
That being said, I recently stayed at the brand new W Midtown Altanta for one night this week, and was VERY impressed. In terms of the rooms and common areas, both were designed to be trendy but not overly so like some of the chain's hotels - very sleek but without the smelly candles everywhere. There is a Spice Market restaurant in the lobby so dependably decent food, and the bar turns into a breakfast spread in the morning. Also the rooms were again sleek but not annoyingly trendy - flat screen TV's with audio/visual ports in the desk so you can plug your laptop in, nice bathrooms, and lots of electrical outlets (it's the details like that that make a difference for a business traveler).
The best part was the service - again, the little things tend to make a difference when all hotels start to look/feel the same, and I was truly impressed with the staff. I forgot my cell phone in my car when I valet parked it, and they came looking for me to bring it to me. The hotel manager offered complimentary drinks at the bar in the evening with a personal note, and the concierge was very helpful (sometimes you feel like they're paid by the local restaurants to guide you to a mediocre place). And I got a coffee in the lobby in the morning which had a price of $2 (Illy coffee) and the woman at the counter said not to worry about paying.
All in all, the service is what really impressed me more than anything here, and would definitely stay again.
Not finished, or just not nicefrom intheatl
Rooms were ok, again nothing special. I hope that they are still finishing up the details because so far I expected a lot more.
Top Local Tips for Atlanta
If this Hotel was at its best appearance and service, the location is great The hotel is in bad repair. But whenever it is back to its full operational standard (As I know Sheraton Hotels usually are), this location is great for getting around Atlanta and visiting cultural sites and restaurants.
BBQ Check out the ribs at Fat Matt's - awesome!!
Coming from Airport taking Marta. If you want to save money, I would definately take the train from the Airport and get off at the stop closest to your hotel, and just catch a cab from there.
