The property was originally a medical building, so the design team used its history to create a cool, hip, modern, apothecary theme, complete with front desk staff in white lab coats. The spacious apartment-like rooms are awesome with a cool modern boutique hotel vibe. It can be pricey as the rates fluctuate depending on local events and conferences. The fun apothecary motif is carried through to the cocktail lounge. On display is a myriad of test tubes with brightly colored liquid and various lab equipment. It completely draws you into their "cocktail lab" for an enjoyable concoction! The hotel is located in the trendy hip Five Points district so there are plenty of places within walking distance to eat and enjoy craft beer and cocktails. Valet parking is pricey but I recommend it, as it solves the problem of downtown parking. Best Tip: Don't forget to get your IHG points since this hotel is part of the InterContinental Group.

This is a nice hotel for a decent price. The location is spot on for any business downtown. The staff is friendly and goes over the top to make your stay a nice one. Special recognition to Casey the valet and Marcus the bartender.

The room was clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The breakfast was outstanding, by its variety, quality. The people were very friendly and helpful. The room charge was very reasonable and the location was great. If I could make a couple of suggestions would be these. The bathtub side wall was high making it difficult to get out of it especially for an older person. There was no support bar. Having one of those installed would help and make the bathtub safer. Second suggestion is to have a dedicated printer in the computer area so the people could print the boarding passes easier than having to send the information to their personal email then forward it to the reception desk email (which by the way did not work) to have them print the barding passes. I appreciate it that on the hotel website there were instructions how to get to the hotel from the airport by using public transportation. Read less

We loved the staff, especially Casey the Valet, Stephen the manager and the weekend bartender was awesome. The hotel itself was clean and seemed new. On one side of the hotel is the lovely and historic Methodist church and Chez Fon Fon and Highlands restaurants, all of which are Great. However in front of and on the other side of the hotel are… Read more
We loved the staff, especially Casey the Valet, Stephen the manager and the weekend bartender was awesome. The hotel itself was clean and seemed new. On one side of the hotel is the lovely and historic Methodist church and Chez Fon Fon and Highlands restaurants, all of which are Great. However in front of and on the other side of the hotel are construction zones, a tattoo parlor and other unseemly businesses. We had been told to request a high floor because of the "club scene" surrounding the hotel. 6th floor was not high enough because we were awakened all during the night by the revelry next door and the Parking Lot lights that the curtains couldn't shut out. If you are a sound sleeper this won't bother you. If not, stay somewhere else. Read less

Stayed here for business and was very pleased with all aspects of the hotel. Customer Service was exceptional from check in with Steve to valet service with Casey and Garrett!! The room had an incredible view and restaurants in walking distance.
