W Atlanta Buckhead, Atlanta GA - June 15

Rating - 8.3

Fun - yeah, Great - no.  I only stayed here because it was so much cheaper than the Hyatt...but I was glad I did.

I am not a huge fan of the "hip" hotel, and think it is silly when only one person is working a "check in" desk - although it doesn't look like that.  The decor was over the top for me, but i was in room 707.

It was 2 rooms over from the elevator, but it was QUIET.

Liked:  how quiet it was, work area with plugs in desk, tv, staff is very friendly and goes out of way to help.

Hated: bathroom in the room (no separation), shower (not real warm, no door, and right next to toilet), food/water they try to sell when you walk in room, bed (horrible night sleep), valet parking (only option at $30/day), the gym - it is not really a gym - just two open rooms with a few barbells, couple of ellipticals, and a punching bag - disappointing.

Had a good breakfast in the restaurant, and a drink in roof top bar before bed.

No reason to stay here again (except for Sprint rate).

Room Charge   129.00 (sprint rate)
Tax   10.32
Occupancy   9.03
Wheels   30.00 (valet - only option)

Total - $178.35
