Hilton Atlanta

Atlanta, Georgia

The hotel

There’s nothing like shooting hoops against a skyscraper-swept backdrop. It’s also the view enjoyed while play 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 Deep South at its Southern Elements restaurant. Or find yourself in the islands at Trader Vic’s, with more than a ‘nod’ to Polynesia in its menu, tiki torch lit décor, and Mai Tai bar (said to be the cocktail’s birthplace). Or just kick back with Krispy Kreme® doughnuts and Starbucks® at Marketplace. But 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’.

I stay in Hilton hotels almost exclusively for work, and this has got to be one of the poorest experiences I have had. From check-in on through, this hotel under performed. The desk was moving slow, while 3 bellhops stood in the corner laughing and joking around. There were only two front desk employees, with the exception of the 3rd who seemed to think their time was better spent back in the office while the line out front continued to build. When I got in line the person in front of me joked that it could be a while, and it was. Aside from the lack of staff, it became apparent why. The first front desk staff person that I talked to seemed ill informed. They literally told me they didn't know much about the Hilton Honors program. All of the staff wasn't bad - after waiting for a room for 3 hours, I went back up to the desk and talked to a person the follow text described as Nicholas, who was very gracious, helpful, and solved all issues right away. Too bad I hadn't spoken with someone knowledgeable the first time. The room was ok, not impressive. What was very disappointing was that the bathroom smelled like a cigarette when I checked in, a smell which lingered throughout my trip and got worse from steam from a shower. I don't smoke at all, so this was especially annoying. I was on the executive floor, so I had the opportunity to go to the 27th floor for "horderves", if you can call them that. The bartenders were nice, but I would personally be embarrassed to serve the food they had out. I won't describe each item, because they changed daily, but it was terrible. One item, mushrooms stuffed with sausage, sounds good but literally had the consistency of rubber. This is what you are serving to people who paid extra? I've stayed on many Hilton executive floors, and this was by far the worst. Hilton in Houston was 100% better. The rooms are also very noisy. This was not exclusive to my room on the 26th floor, just about everyone I talked to said the same thing. If your interested in hearing the interstate all night then this is the hotel for you. If you want to get good sleep stay somewhere else. If this conference comes back to Atlanta I will stay at the Marriott. Read less

The room is nice, the property is nice. Not as impressive as the Marriott next door if you’re looking around. Here on a conference and the room was so cold people were putting on parkas and gloves. Did not correct issue throughout day. The staff at the Marketplace was consistently slow, disinterested and rude.

Room was ok. Mostly clean, comfortable. Little things like the light bulb in the entrance hallway was out my entire stay. Everything I put in my refrigerator froze. The safe didn't work (low battery display). The staff was consistently pleasant. An average stay.

I go to DragonCon yearly and I stay at the Hilton Atlanta every time. This year was really great. The staff went out of their way to make my say a pleasent one. Brad at the front desk was espesially helpful. He helped he with finding things and he was dressed in a costume to make me feel comfortable at the hotel. This is why I only stay there!
