Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jim1001 Unpleasant breakfast experience
Normally we prefer HIE for the excellent buffet breakfast. However, this time we were very disappointed with the lack of fruit, milk & hot water for tea. The coffee was lukewarm with no microwave to rewarm it. Asking about it proved to no avail.

1. The doorstop in the bathroom in front of the tub was awkward.
2. The shower head was too low for my husband.
3. The television picture did not fill the entire screen.
4. There wasn't an ice machine on every floor which was an inconvenience.
1. Fridge and microwave.
2. Pretty good breakfast.
3. Comfortable bed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tsavo Overall poor stay & service
I have stayed in many holiday inn but this was a sour experience . I could never get a razor blade or tooth paste & when I got a tooth paste they had to look for it all over the place including the tooth brush ! They were rationing it !! I felt I was in a war zone being rationed no explanations were ever give why the shortage or rationing !! The tooth brush ONLY last one time Use ! Why pinch pennies! !i missed towels & shampoo in my room as well ! The breakfast bar was fair with the pancake machine not working 3 out of my 4 nights !! I will be going to Atlanta on monthly basis for the next 10 months for a week stay & this holiday is Definitely NOT going to be on MY List ! Disappointed client MC

For business I stay at this HIE probably 30-35 times per year.
The staff from GM Mike, right on down to the front desk people, always make me feel welcome and at 'home'.
Being out of town can be a solitary and lonely experience, but that is not the case at HIE.
Great breakfast and very convenient to downtown ATL., Emory and the V.A. Hospital.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris22xyz Excellent place
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay of one night and would highly recommend it to anyone. All the staff were so kind. I had the shuttle transport me to the hospital in the morning for surgery and he was actually the one in charge of maintenance. he was very kind and concerned about my welfare. The decor is beautiful with a gorgeous Christmas tree in the lobby. I highly recommend this hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel over 50 nights this year and every stay is just as pleasant as the first stay.
The staff greets you by a name basis and is very friendly. I recommend this hotel to anyone that is in the Atlanta area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LBzy2013 not too happy
One good thing is it's close to interstate. Where do I start.... my pilliows were lumpy, so I slept and woke up with a crook in my neck. I called the front desk for a blanket and lets just say i'm still waiting on my blanket! I would not reccommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stolport The Staff made the stay great
We stayed at HIE near Emory because our daughter was having brain surgery and naturally we were distraught. We were welcomed by Muriel and another lady who helped us get settled into our rooms. The others staying with us had gone to the wrong HIE so Muriel helped sort that out. In the morning James was fully aware of our situation and the shuttle driven by the manager, Mike, was waiting to take us to the hospital.
Unfortunately, the next day we had some billing issues - not the fault of HIE - and a young lady named Cameron, stayed working with me and the travel agency for 2 HOURS! This despite the fact she was the only one checking people in and out that morning. Great people, Great stay, good memories of the staff and stay.

This is my opinion of an experience of my stay at this hotel location.
I made a mistake and forgot my dirty clothes bag on the bed. When I got home I called the hotel and was told that nothing had been logged into the report.
I called the next day and was told no report and the connected my to the lost and found and I left a message with my phone but a week later no reply.
I called the 3rd time and was completely ignored by the front desk.
I had to file a case with IHG club to get the Gen. Managers to call me. Hmmm next day they found it. Funny about that.
I felt that the Gen. Manager made excuses and did not realize that his system had failed to work and I truly felt that he was not sincere in his words to me.
When house keeping finds something in the room they know who was in the room and how to contact them. As a Gold Member I really know they know how to contact me but failed.
They have violated my trust in this hotel location and will never return.
Other comment - the breakfast eggs tasted under warmed and was soft and runny - the orange juice was watery. the area was clean but unattended to. I stayed the night before I got here at a (another hotel) and the morning food spread was fantastic and it was same price for the stay.
Footnote - The General Manager did forward my found clothes in a timely manner at my expense which I have no objections over.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Harris123 Housekeeping needs more training
The trash cans need sanitizing on each floor. When you first walk in the door, it smells like rotten meat. Worse of all the toilet had something brown on it AND a strange looking hair. You can guess what I am talking about. Not a clean facility at all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jackie27123 Poor service - would not recommend
Shuttle service was not available at any of the times I needed it (7am, 3pm), although I was told on the phone when I booked my reservation that this would not be a problem to book. The staff was rude to me on the phone when I called with questions after booking and before arrival. I was not allowed to check in within an hour of their allowed check in time (3pm).
Would not stay at this hotel again or recommend to anyone else.

I stayed at the hotel from September 30 through October 4, 2013. Bright and beautiful color selection. Overall, the experience and stay was good but could use some improvement. I recommend a better selection for breakfast and nightly socials. The staff was good but could have been a little friendlier. I would recommend this hotel, great stay for the price I paid.

The room was so nice!!! It was updated, clean and comfortable. The only complaint we had was that the air conditioner wasn't working properly. When we told the customer service lady about it at check-out, she took $20 off our bill which made the value even better! The breakfast was unbelievable!! So many delicious choices!

The staff was execellenct and made evey effort to acommodate my needs and wishes. The property does need some attendtion., but the place was nice enough. The air condition in my room was a bit noisy. If you are a light sleeper (I'm not) this might be an issue for you. The staff was very willing to make note issues to be addressed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TCB3 Muriel and Staff set the standard
Arrived on a Friday and I had to have a FEDEX sent to the address which was delivered before I arrived. I called and Andrea had my package ready. Room was clean and neat. I do recommend the property eventually invest in a central air system. The system in there works but central air is better.
Really enjoyed your staff, all of them. However, Muriel stood out as it is hard to find a worker that balances professionalism and can relate to all kinds of people, she does just that.
The hotel is close to many attractions, waffle house near by, and I was able to relax and feel safe. I loved the gym and I am in love with your staff.
Recommend promotions and raises. I travel a lot and the staff is just well pu together. Thank you.

When we entered the room, you could tell there was problems. The shower curtain and rod was laying across the chair in the room. When I put the rod back in the shower there was footprints in the tub left by the maintenance man. The worst part was the tub was still leaking so I assume that he didn't fix the leak. As a platinum member I expected better, I had asked for a roll-away bed but was told they had run out. I am a smoker and when I asked the girl cleaning the room down the hall if she had an ashtray she told me I had to call the front desk. 10 minutes later she knocked on the door with the ashtray. The next day my wife asked the same girl for a roll of toilet-paper and was told to check at the front desk. Customer service needs some work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BarcelonaDragons above and beyond accomodating
This continues to be our all-time favorite hotel. They saved us our handicap access room as always, but we had a friend staying with us this trip. James (front desk) gave us a different room with two beds to accommodate our friend, but 24-access to our handicap access room so my husband could use the roll-in shower (he has two artificial hearts). As is usually the case, the entire staff was there to help us with anything we needed. And the night watchman continues to pray for my husband throughout his battle with cancer. Amazing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MovingtoAtlanta Good Location & Great Pillows!
The only thing I would mention is there seem to be some maintenance issues that are slipping by (leaky a/c units, our door didn't latch correctly but they fixed it asap). Otherwise, the staff was friendly and responsive, the room was clean & comfortable, the business center was a life-saver and it was a great value for the location. I'd definitely stay there again.

We really enjoyed being close to Atlanta but not paying the high prices of downtown! This property was clean, safe and comfy!
Breakfast was a great start each morning. Hot tub was perfect after a long day at convention.
Staff was friendly. Housekeeping did a great job too!
