Hilton Atlanta

Atlanta, Georgia

The hotel

There’s nothing like shooting hoops against a skyscraper-swept backdrop. It’s also the view enjoyed while playing tennis or take a morning rooftop jog at Hilton Atlanta. A stroll from CNN Center, World of Coca-Cola, and Georgia Aquarium, it’s not all about fitness here. You could head to the Southern Elements restaurant, offering traditional Southern Cuisine, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Or find yourself in the Trader Vic’s, featuring hand-carved tikis, palm-thatched ceilings, and south pacific décor offering an international menu and tropical cocktails, including the Peachtree Punch, a signature cocktail of Trader Vic’s Atlanta. Or just kick back with Krispy Kreme® doughnuts and Starbucks® at Marketplace. The star here is Nickolai’s Roof, a penthouse restaurant whose menu’s drizzled with fine dining buzzwords like ‘veloute’, ‘confit’ and ‘truffle demi glace’.

A lot of people have said this hotel is dated, and unfortunately is not the best place in town. Surprisingly, the staff here during my stay were very friendly. The view of Atlanta from my room, on the 26th floor was surprisingly very good. The pillows here, unfortunately like those at the Homewood Suites, were once again very terrible. Room was okay though, I was on the Executive Floor (PLEASE REOPEN YOUR EXECUTIVE LOUNGE SOON!!!). However, while most of the staff was friendly, housekeeping I've had the worst experience with, because on my first night there I requested they clean my room, and they didn't do it. The second night they did, after telling her I requested it for that day. This is one area they need to work on, when a guest requests housekeeping service THEY NEED TO COMMIT to this and not slack off. In comparison during this pandemic, I've been at Disney and phoned in a request to have their housekeeping service performed at least once on my second day, and they committed to it. However, the main advantage here is the Skybridge between here, the Marriot, and the PeachTree Center (no having to walk unfamiliar territory, plus it's close to the MARTA too!) Next time, I'll probably be at the Marriot, WestIn, or Hyatt, which I hear are a little bit better than this rundown place! Oh and p.s. I hear Nikolai's Roof is reopening soon!!!!! Read less

Very poor service , digital key won’t work, staff can’t be found, they very rude, takes hours for maintenance to arrive, door locks do not work. Spend your money somewhere else it’s nit worth it.. no room service, no one answers the phone. Oh my god

I have never stayed in a hotel this bad, worst one in downtown Atlanta. No soaps, no hand sanitizer in common areas, unfriendly staff that made you feel like an inconvenience. Way too expensive for lumpy beds and old pillows

Jan-15-2022 Confirmation #3224388335 Hilton Honors Diamond My first Hilton stay since Covid interrupted travel. The best part of this stay was AARON COLEMAN. Thank you Aaron, even though we only met at checkout you made up for the shortcomings of all the other hotel staff and the hotel itself. Room: 1 King Deluxe Studio Room. The room reeked of marijuana. There was no soap in the bathroom and some of the lights did not work. The room itself shows a dated decor. Front Desk: No greeting No greeting as a diamond member. I had to ask for my water amenity. The staff were disengaged and seemed unwelcoming. Front desk manager is apparently a voice-mail service. I had a 1:30 p.m. late checkout, but chose to leave before 11 a.m. as the stay was depressing. I will not be returning to this hotel, there are TOO many options in this area. The only reason I stayed here is that the Westin Peachtree Plaza was sold out when I tried to book my room. Disappointed in every way with this hotel, except for the gentleman Aaron Coleman. To let you, the reader, understand how poorly this stay went, I took time to file a Hilton Guest Assistance Case #113589298. Read less
