Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cricketd Friendly staff and convenient location
I stayed at this location during a convention in the Georgia World Congress Center. It was not one of the conference hotels but I found that it was cheaper, offered free breakfast, and was just as conveniently located as the other hotels. All of the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xtinecarmen Fantastic location!
Being that this was my first trip to Atlanta, I had a really difficult time deciding what hotel to choose. I'm glad I chose this hotel!
Upon arrival, the front desk personnel (I really wish I could remember her name) immediately asked us where we parked our vehicle. On telling her it was across the street she suggested we move it as the city gives tickets pretty quick so we were thankful for that. She also gave us a nice king size room on the 9th floor which had great views looking towards Centennial Olympic Park. Really loved that room - comfortable bed, air conditioning worked perfectly and you could barely hear all the sounds of the city.
The hotel is in walking distance (up to 10 mins) to two MARTA stations and to Centennial Olympic Park and, if you like that sort of thing, the World of Coca Cola.
It also offers the typical complimentary breakfast you'd come to expect from HIE. There seems to be an employee there almost all the time checking to ensure there is enough coffee, food, etc. She was very nice and helpful if you need something.
My only negative - although we knew in advance that there was a fee for parking, I do find the fact that it's a nightly charge ($20 self or $25 valet) to be a bit much. That aside, it was a great stay and it's definitely at the top of our list when we come back for a Falcons game.

Every morning when we eat breakfast, the lady who serve was always with a big smile on her face. She made us felt so joyful in the morning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ANRF44 Above and Beyond the Call of Duty!!!! A+++++
Let me start from the beginning. We have food allergies so a week prior to our arrival I explained in detailed to the GM what allergies we had (milk, eggs, and peanuts) and she explained company policies and how she could fit and meet our allergy needs. Upon arrival the staff already had the allergy friendly drinks and food waiting on us. The reason for our trip was our 4 yo bday. The staff welcomed us with birthday songs and happy faces. On his actual birthday the staff presented us with a card and just made it so special. They gave great recommendations on places to see and attractions;Even gave good seat recommendations for the braves game. Coming into the hotel we were a bit nervous but once we were there and knew where we were in downtown it was so convenient to the popular attractions. Vallet was always quick to service. Rooms were always tidy when we got back from morning adventures.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Greenmom All was ok until....
The staff here were super nice and helpful. I was so pleased with their service. When I got to my room, the door wouldn't open so some of the cleaning crew got someone to start working on the lock. They had it all taken care of in about 15 minutes. My room was by the stairs/elevator so I thought it would be loud but it wasn't. The room I stayed in had a living area space and a bedroom and small shower. It was fine. When ready to go I went downstairs and grabbed a coffee before I jumped in the cab. While drinking my coffee, I felt something hit my lip. It was a big bug. It was either in the cup or lid or coffee or creamer and it was now on my freaking lip. I almost threw up. So that is why I gave it a low score. All other things were great but this one thing will keep me from going there again. Sorry.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KnoxvilleDave Very Small Room
My son and I decided to take a few days and see the sites in Atlanta so we chose a hotel that was located close to a few attractions so we could walk. We were very surprised when we saw the very small elevators...5 people max.....and that would be uncomfortable. When we got up to our room we were even more surprised by minimal room between the dresser, beds, wall, etc. Impossible for two people to walk side by side in the room. Also, the bathroom was very small, enough room to turn around in, but that’s about it. Also, as for location, it was close to a few attractions (aquarium, Coke, Centennial Park) but required a car to others (Museums, zoo, concert venues). Also, be concerned about which way you head out of the hotel. Go one way and it is touristy, go the others and it can be very scary at times. I would venture to guess we were either asked for money or gestured to come down a not so safe area at least 8-10 times. Best bet is stick to tourist areas at night........and stay away from the "underground at night."

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by unk223232 No what I expect from Holiday Inn Express
The "Queen" bed was not a true queen and it was very uncomfortable. The bathroom smelled like septic was flowing from the drains. It was horrible. We could not enjoy being in our room as this smell was unbearable. The hotel is really old and parking is absurd. We did the self park and the garage was a block and a half away. Valet is a must here. There are much better options in Atlanta for the same price. Staff was nice but it was not enough to over come the poor room.

Well kept property located near convention center area. The staff are friendly and the beds comfortable. Only downside are the size of the rooms! The room was clean, but a little cramped. No drawers to place clothes in if you're looking to unpack for your stay. Very convenient for visiting downtown attractions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Volleyball Weekend
Our stay was somewhat of a quick in & out. We were in town for the Big South Volleyball tournament, so there wasn't much time spent at the hotel, except to sleep. The proximity was awesome, so everyday was a short walk to the convention center. The most important thing was the breakfast, it wasn't an all-star, but it did what we needed. A sound breakfast before a long day of volleyball. Overall this was a pleasant stay and the cost did not hurt too much.
I would definitely consider again for next year!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by terid Great staff
What a pleasant experience our stay was, in large part due to the staff! The hotel staff, from the front desk to the breakfast staff to the valet guys...They are kind, they are engaging, they are polite, they are helpful even when you don't ask, and their kindness is sincere. They have obviously created a culture of exceptional customer service and every employee takes that aspect of their job very seriously. The rooms are small, but that is the only drawback. They are clean and up to date and the beds are awesome. Having a refrigerator and a microwave in the room was a great bonus. Great stay!

The hotel is quite small but the welcome is large. The staff are friendly and helpful, making sure you have all you need and giving the service their personal touch. Room was small, but clean and comfortable, only issue I had was the aircon being noisy. Location is good, a few minutes walk from the main restaurants and close enough to the conference center to walk in 20 mins. Would happily stay here again although in summer the need for the aircon may interfere with sleep!

An amazing place - within walking distance of everything in Downtown Atlanta! The staff is exceptional - helpful, friendly and you can tell they are there for you! They exuded Southern Hospitality to it's finest and this includes the breakfast staff as well. The manager, Vira, has put together a great group of people that really want to make your stay a pleasant one from the time you step onto the property! ENJOY!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EHSOhio Overall an Excellent Stay
The afternoon staff on Wednesday (3/26) could have been a little nicer. Short answers, and couldn't explain why he needed an extra $200 for incidentals. For a hotel with breakfast included, that is a lot of incidentals. The room was very nice and clean. The bathroom was very small but useable. The housekeeping staff was excellent. Overall it's a little dated, but it's close to everything and well maintained. The Landmark Diner (60 Luckie St) is close and had excellent food and service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pam823 Very Friendly & Caring Staff; Comfortable & Relaxing Atmosphere
This was my family's first stay at this HIE, but it will definitely not be our last!!! The staff was so congenial and caring from the first step in the door until we left! Desk staff was so efficient, knowledgeable and concerned, especially with my 76 yr old parents! That, for me, was so comforting! The Valet staff was so courteous and quick! The Housekeeping staff was very friendly and always available! I can't say enough about the staff! They were all so wonderful! The hotel had a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere, but mainly it felt 'safe'! The location is central for so many locations which makes it perfect!!! Thank you to everyone that made our trip wonderful!!!

Great location, close to convention center, and major attractions like Coke World. A short 2 block walk from the MARTA, $5 round trip from the airport.
Internet worked good. Breakfast was good but could have used cream gravy for the biscuits. Pancakes were great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reading Teacher Staff was extremely polite.
While I cannot give the highest rating for the size of the room, the friendliness and help of the staff more than made up for that.
Waiting for my son to pick me up, I had the chance to observe how the staff worked with other guest ensuring their needs were met. The valet(s) were prompt with retrieving my car the several times I used it as well as opening my doors, ensuring everything was inside my vehicle, and that I had cleared the space before they moved my car.
I would recommend this hotel to others visiting in the Atlanta area.

The tax and parking cost added more than I care to pay. I will find another place to stay if we return. The Monster Energy show was awful compared to last year. Due to the poor show and the Ga Dome staff poorly handling the fight in our section we will not likely return next year.
