We stayed 3 nights at this very hospitable hotel. The front check in staff were exceptional helpful and friendly. A special thanks to Chris for his helpful "bad weather " tip . Housekeeping was just ok - had to request twice for them to bring towels after cleaning and removing the used ones. We will again be using this hotel...

Excellent location. One minute walk to Decatur square and main street, teeming with every choice of restaurant/ diner/bar/cafe/ shops. And of course the MARTA station to whisk us downtown Atlanta. The hotel was modern, comfortable, spacious. My son had traveled from England and I from Scotland and we were welcomed like family. Nothing was too much trouble and advice and...

Parking garage, $10 a day. Nice atrium hotel, bar area, but closes at 10p, Modern furnishings, spacious and clean rooms. Close to many restaurants and shops. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful.

I arrived here for a wedding in Decatur, and found the staff warm and welcoming. I had checked in on my app the night before so I had my room ready to go upon my arrival at 1 pm, about 3 hours ahead of schedule. The hotel was spacious and roomy, clean and wonderful. Just a quick walk from Decatur...

Great location and outstanding service mark this hotel. Otherwise the price to quality offer is mediocre. You can do better in the downtown or midtown areas. On the negative side expect one paper thin towel per person in the room, cheap and limited amenities, no room safe, low speed internet, etc. In other words, an expensive Motel 6 with a...

Great location, but the front desk was not friendly at all when I arrived. The room was nice, but the walls were paper thin, to the point where I could hear the person next door talking in the phone. Overall not awful, but I would probably look to stay somewhere else next time.

In town to see one of the last Atlanta Braves games at Turner Field - Family decided to head to Atlanta to see Detroit Tigers match up with the Braves! Picked this location since it met our needs of being in close proximity to the MARTA and Decatur is a great city to visit. Lots of good restaurants to choose...

I stayed only one night here, but should I return to the Atlanta area I'll stay here again. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, and even walked me to the nearby Emory shuttle van stop. The suite I stayed in was spacious and comfortable, and the bedding and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The carpet was a bit worn...

I must say the staff at reception were wonderful and very helpful, the beds are super comfortable (with good pillows) but ....the carpet was filthy making me long for "throw away slippers".

The people that work here are extremely friendly and helpful, the room was clean and satisfactory, but a few hiccups had me irritated. You pay a per diem fee to park in a garage and sometimes the key card needed to exit doesn't work. Also, the Starbucks cafe's coffee can miss the mark. I probably wouldn't stay here again.
