The comments about expensive drinks, club music, and gay people make me laugh. It's the W Hotel in Midtown Atlanta! The vibe is fun and cool, the staff (gay or straight, who cares?) is friendly, and beds are really nice. Yes, hotel and food and drinks are expensive - please show me an urban 4 star hotel where that is not the case! Anyway, off the soap box.
I really like Starwood Hotels - we often stay at the Westin Buckhead (which might be more appropriate for reviewers who found this hotel too loud or didn't like the decor) but decided to try the W Midtown on this stay (we were there for the annual Peachtree Road Race). For race runners, by the way, the W was much better than the Westin. There was fruit, granola bars, water and coffee available for runners at like 6am. We very much appreciated that!
We had a standard room (only a few rooms down from the elevator, but there was no noise) on the 7th floor. The decor was a fun black, grey and purple. The bed was awesome - I slept so well - one of the best beds ever. Like every W, nice bathroom products (BLISS). I didn't love the shower in our room however- we had issues getting the water to be hot (vs. warm) and got water all over the bathroom because of the open concept. Someone had knocked the bathroom pocket door off the track and we called to get it fixed - they promptly sent someone to take care of it. We did take advantage of the car service - once to downtown ATL and once to dinner in a nearby neighborhood (Virginia-Highland). Great service, very friendly and no problem booking a ride.
We spent some time at the pool - very nice, but not enough chairs to go 'round. Wish there were more space. Sadly, we didn't have time to visit the spa, but I would like to try it out, perhaps on our next visit. (we will return)
