W Atlanta Buckhead

Atlanta, Georgia

The hotel

W Atlanta does things differently. Dressed in the latest designer gear, from bold statement furniture to funky light fittings, it lives up to W Hotels’ hip and slick image. But it’s not all style and no substance; it’s also seconds from Atlanta’s famous Peachtree Street – in fact, you’ll see it as you swim in the infinity edge rooftop pool or dine on the patio of cool and contemporary Cook Hall. Rubbing shoulders with Atlanta’s best retail spots, from Lenox Square Mall to Phipps Plaza Mall, you may find lugging shopping bags is all the exercise you need but, if not, W Atlanta’s fitness centre is open 24/7. And, when you want somewhere to show off your new purchases, you can always dress to impress and head up to the ‘mod-meets-70s glamour’ of its Whiskey Blue Atlanta bar and terrace.

We had an incredible experience! From checking to checkout your staff was awesome! The manager of the Livingroom and Ariel our bartender made our kickoff to my birthday festivities incredible!

the renovation looks good. nice rooms but it’s true, other people were also surprised about the generic bedding. I remember when W’s were quiet famous for the great beds, NOT THIS ONE. other than that, very friendly staff. walking distance to mall.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Extremely nice hotel! Only negatives were the bed and the parking fee.

The attention to detail at this hotel was spot on! I loved the decor of every part of it. Our room was very pretty! I loved that there were plenty of outlets all over the room! The built in reading lights onto the headboard were nice. The bathroom was plenty big and I loved the large shower! The hair dryer that was provided was excellent and I… Read more
The attention to detail at this hotel was spot on! I loved the decor of every part of it. Our room was very pretty! I loved that there were plenty of outlets all over the room! The built in reading lights onto the headboard were nice. The bathroom was plenty big and I loved the large shower! The hair dryer that was provided was excellent and I loved the samples of facial products. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel was very clean. My only complaint was that the bed was too firm for me. But that’s my own preference. I did not sleep well. The high parking fee was WAY too steep in my opinion. Read less

This property is nicely renovated and conveniently located, with friendly staff and great food. However I had two MAJOR problems during my stay that will prevent me from ever staying there again. Problem #1: The walls are super thin. Some type of music playing kept me up all night the first night there. MORE concerning Problem #2: I had several problems during my stay at the W Atlanta this week. (FYI, the confirmation code is 80470061 but my account is not yet displaying my stay). On the first night, I could hear music playing all night long through the very thin walls and this was very disruptive to my sleep. Much more concerning was my experience this morning - at 7 am while I was still sleeping, I was woken up by knocks on what I thought was a neighboring room's door (given that I know the walls are super thin). A minute later, I heard my door opening and I jumped out of bed and said "Excuse me" and the person apologized and closed my door. I called the front desk to see if there was a reason they sent someone to my room and I was told that this was a "routine procedure" that the maintenance engineer performs to go do preventative maintenance on rooms (at 7am?!!!). I was extremely upset that they sent someone to my room so early in the morning when I was not due to check out until 11 am, and while the person at the front desk apologized, his only explanation was that this is a routine procedure and since the maintenance engineer knocked, he thought the room was vacant. This is an inappropriate policy that needs to be changed to ensure that a guest has checked out before they send employees knocking on doors of occupied rooms early in the morning. I have shared my feedback with Marriott corporate, and hopefully they can change this practice and allow guests to comfortably and safely stay at this hotel! (And I will ALWAYS remember to double bolt my door from now on!) Read less

I had stayed here several years ago and did not have a positive experience. Recently in town for one night and decided to try again. The valet and front check in were great, super friendly. Love the modern decor. The rooms are comfortable though on the smaller side and bathroom could be better (needs sliding door). I am only giving it 3 stars… Read more
I had stayed here several years ago and did not have a positive experience. Recently in town for one night and decided to try again. The valet and front check in were great, super friendly. Love the modern decor. The rooms are comfortable though on the smaller side and bathroom could be better (needs sliding door). I am only giving it 3 stars (would do 2.5 if an option) for cleanliness. My shower was gross. Lots of mold between tiles and under the grab bar. Just didn’t get clean feeling (see photo). I’ll stick to the Grand Hyatt or Intercontinental. Read less
