The hotel is walking distance to the aquarium, the CNN building, the Coca Cola museum, and MARTA, and there are tens of restaurants within a two block radius. The hotel is classically built (1818 I think) and renovated with flat panel TV's in the rooms. There is a nice playground for kids across from the Aquarium.
We stayed in a 2-br suite and the room itself had everything we needed in the kitchen. We were two adults and three children, but the tableware settings in the room was for three people. There was a flat panel TV in each bedroom and one in the living room as well, which was a nice feature
The hotel has a very small gym, and at the time we went (Feb 2012) there was a sign in the gym stating that there was a complimentary membership at Gold's Gym a few blocks away.
One item to note is that when looking at the amenities for the hotel, a pool is not listed. However, once we arrived at the hotel, the front desk told us that we could go to a nearby Marriott to use their pool. Nice, but frustrating because we left our bathing suits at home.
They offer a complimentary Happy Hour along with a light dinner. The night we went they served spaghetti and garlic bread, and salad. This was a perfect alternative to going out, though there are many restaurants close by, The hotel does not have a full service restaurant.
The hotel staff was extremely friendly and we were always met with a smile.
In summary, this was centrally located, and a decent bargain for the price.
