Renowned Atlanta architect John Portman designed the hotel, the Western Hemisphere’s largest. All 1,073 rooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass windows, desks, High Speed Internet Access, the Heavenly® Bed and marble Heavenly® Bath.
The Westin Peachtree was a lovely hotel; we would definitely stay there again. My only complaint was that we went to the bar for some late night snacks/drinks and it took an incredibly long time for us to be served. The food took an hour and we only ordered a quesadilla! Granted they were busy, but I think they should've been able to handle the crowd since they are a well-established facility. There was no manager there to address the issue. That being said, we also ate breakfast there the next morning and the service was very prompt. Overall the hotel was really nice, clean and comfortable.
TL,DR; List: - Clean and modern - Awesome view - Two blocks from Centennial Park and all the attractions there (Aquarium, Coke museum, etc) - The staff was pretty awesome and very friendly We were there for only two nights for a concert that was in the park, so the location was the entire reason I chose the hotel. The room was a tad small, but well maintained and modernly furnished. I wish they had glass doors in the shower instead of a tub and a curtain, as I have 3 kids that don't know how to keep the curtain in the tub and thus the water not all over the bathroom floor. There were a LOT of places to eat around the hotel, but most were either SUPER pricey or not opened on the weekend as the most likely catered to the business crowd. There is an underground mall that we found had a pizza joint and a chinese place opened. Waffle House is also a couple blocks away, and on your way to the park. We also walked over to The Varsity for lunch so the kids could experience it. It was about a 20min walk each way. Other immediate eateries I saw: Hooters (across the street, open till midnight), Hard Rock Cafe (also across the street), some brazillian steakhouse that looked AMAZING, a fish place named Ray's that looked pretty pricey, several bar-and-grill type places, and some cozy little place a block down that had a cute name that had southern food. Parking was crazy. My GPS took me to the smaller entrance, so I wasn't aware there was self-parking right at the hotel. It was $22 per day to self-park, but I ended up where the guard pointed me towards a block away for $20 a day. I would have rather paid the extra $2 a day and had the car in a more convenient location. Since we were just there a couple days, and had no intention of going anywhere in the car, the only benefit would have been packing our stuff into the car and taking off without having to walk through the city with all our luggage. The pool was a bit interesting. I loved the fact that it was inside, so even though it was raining all weekend, the kids and I were able to take a dip. It's a strange little pool, not concrete but rather some sort of plastic insert. The biggest let down was that we did not see a hot tub. Nothing better to relax after standing for a 4hr concert in the park than to relax in the hot tub. Also, to get to the pool (and the workout room), you have to go to the 9th floor, then over to another elevator off to the side, then up to the 11th floor. Seemed very strange, but I guess they may have added the pool later. Lastly, we found out the last day that you can go up to the tippy-top floor, where they have some observation decks setup. We got all excited, since the hotel is like 70+ floors, and we were told you can see several states away. However, we found out that it isn't opened until like 3pm, and being out last day and having a 8hr drive back home ahead of us, we were not able to actually go up there. Oh well, maybe next time.
TL,DR; List: - No free wifi in the room - Parking is a mess, and valete is pricey - There are a few restaurants in the immediate couple of blocks, but most of the cheaper options were not open on Sat or Sun (not the hotel's fault, I know) - Most of the channels on the TV were not in HD or were VERY fuzzy - Pool is strange to get to, and no hot tub
I liked that MARTA was across the street and there were several restaurants on the same block. I also liked that checkout wasn't required until 3pm. The valet service was always very prompt. I appreciated the security of needing your key card to enter the building at night and to get the elevator to go to guest room floors.
Every morning we woke up there, we were congested. After we left the hotel each day, we felt great (and neither of us were sick before or after our stay). I question the air quality from the air conditioning. The bathroom was very small and the grout in the shower was stained to a degree that I was grateful to have remembered my shower shoes. The exit to the valet was very convenient, but exits to walk onto the street were less obvious.
The view only
The bed was a rock it was freezing throughout the entire hotel, the bathroom is way too small, I've seen nicer comfort inns
Great views - love the floor to ceiling windows. Easy walk to the aquarium. Lots of recycling. Very green. Plenty of good restaurants around.
Self park was a little challenging. Elevators would have made loading/unloading a little easier.
Nothing about it stood out. It was the same as staying at a days inn.
Hotel has a nice view and rooms were comfortable and clean.
After spending $135 for one night, parking was full and we had to park in a a garage 6 blocks away and pay $32 dollars. Valet parking did nothing to help and then the hotel wanted $12 to use wifi. I thought for the price that would be included.
The parking was very difficult to find and was $20 for 24 hours in a parking garage that was across the street.
Everything you need was within the confines of the Westin and it was central to other sites in the city.
Bar was a little pricey as was parking!
The view of the city.
That my car got broken into in the parking garage. Window was smashed.
The location is key, and the operations are excellent. Couldnt help but admire the view of downtown from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Beds were very firm and the outlets weren't in convenient places
was a wonderful weekend in a Beautiful city. The stay was everything expected in a luxury Hotel.
Did not have a Hot tub to soak the bones after day exploring city.
Great location. Beautiful building. Great views.
Expensive parking. Expensive room service. Long check-in line.
Great hotel in the center of downtown. Very clean, comfortable bed, and nice room. Great view of the city from our 50th floor room.
The garage was full, as was valet, which meant we had to drive and find a garage which ended up being $32 for overnight parking. Not sure if parking would've been free otherwise, but that was a big disappointment.
I didn't like that check in was at 4 and room wasn't ready when I arrived at 5. They also said that they didn't have any queen beds only king at that time because the rooms weren't clean yet. I booked room a month and a half in advance from stay and had 3 people staying in room, so why would I want a king bed.
