This hotel was built over 50 years ago, so it bought a big chunk of land to build on, which is now rare and prime real estate in downtown Atlanta. As a result, this is a spacious hotel. The lobby is open and very large, main hallways are roomy and bright, and the pool area has plenty of space for chairs. The thing that I like the most about this hotel has got to be the huge fitness center. The machines are newer and each has an individual tv screen (anything to keep my interest during cardio!) As a matter of fact, the common areas all appear to be fairly renovated and attractive. Be prepared to pay for parking and wifi. The restaurant and bar seemed very attractive, and the hotel is also right in the middle of a long list of things to do right in downtown.Recommended for:

Up until recently this hotel was a Marriott, and it’s pretty easy to tell – it remains a very nice, very well maintained facility. The rooms plenty nice enough – well maintained and spacious, and the hotel is much smaller than some of the other massive hotels in the area. The staff told me that the lobby is expected to undergo a full-on renovation during the coming weeks.
It’s pretty ideally located. The hotel overlooks Walton Spring Park, a small square that a welcome green sight in the rest of the crowded city. But just behind the hotel, maybe a block away, is probably the highlight of an Atlanta trip: Centennial Olympic Park. Of course alongside the park you get some of Atlanta’s best and most famous attractions, like the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coke museum. You also get a view of the new skyview ferris wheel.
For a taste of Atlanta, you’re not too far from the original The Varsity drive-in. But right down the street is a Ted’s Montana Grill.
One detail that I thought was neat is that the hotel uses old style wooden elevators, and manage to do so without feeling unsafe – no small feat in my mind.Recommended for:

The vibe of the lobby is relaxed, with multiple places where people can sit, talk, or people watch. Space downtown comes at a premium. It was nice that the outdoor pool appeared to be roomy. Surrounded by many attractions, with a direct view of the newest, SkyView. There is no doubt that this hotel is a tourist magnet. During lunchtime the onsite restaurant, Press was serving cookies, sandwiches and salads all in a grab and go format. The case was neatly organized, and they put the desserts eye level to tempt my palate. It appears to be a place where not just guests staying at the hotel dine.
There are two ways to get to the fitness center on the second floor. Take the elevator, or walk up the stairs at the end of the hall. There you will find medicine balls, cardio machines and free weights.Recommended for:

The Hilton Doubletree is a great location for tourists—you’re within walking distance to the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, Philips Arena, and Centennial Olympic Park—but still in a very safe area of the city. The rooms are very clean and well-maintained with big, plush beds. Unfortunately, they do not offer a grab-and-go style breakfast, but the hotel restaurant offers a really nice buffet with made-to-order omlettes. While I was there the staff was very courteous with any guest questions or concerns. Also--this is one of the few mid-range hotels downtown with a pool. If you’ve never visited Atlanta in the summertime, believe me, you’ll want a hotel with a pool. I think this location is absolutely ideal for vacationers and families.Recommended for:

There is no free internet in the rooms. You have to go downstairs and sit in the lobby to use it. All in all, that kinda blows as if I want to check my email at 3 am in the morning, I have to go downstairs for it or pay $10 a day. If there were internet in the rooms, this place would get 5 stars.
