    The Melia is a gorgeous hotel in midtwon. It's a few blocks down the street from GA Tech and not far from Atlanta's famous the Varsity restaurant. This hotel has just about everything you could want with a fitness center, pool, conference rooms and several different in-house dining options including a pool bar -- how cool! One thing I will say is that parking in this area is a huge hassle, so I wouldn't recommend bring a car here, which should be fine as you're right next to everything.

    The Melia is a nice hotel in right where midtown meets downtown, in a good location near a lot of great Atlanta attractions.

    Here’s the thing about the Melia, it’s clearly older than some of the other nice hotels in downtown and midtown. But the thing is, I think it gives the hotel some character. It’s got a really classic feel that hotels like the Renaissance and Twelve Centennial don’t have. The lobby is massive, and the rooms are plenty big as well; they’re not brand new or as nice as some other hotels in Atlanta, but they’ve got a lot of classic character, and I can appreciate that.

    The best thing about the Melia is how close it is to some of Atlanta’s best stuff, most notably the original The Varsity restaurant, which is literally less than a block away and mostly viewable from the hotel. If you can stomach a little drive-in grease, you’ve got to try it at least once. You’re also less than a block away from a MARTA station, and the line runs all the way to the airport, which is convenient and not exactly typical in Atlanta.

    If ordinary hotel customer service just doesn't impress you any longer, then this is the place to come and be blown away! Melia' Atlanta has the most extraordinary customer service I have seen in any of the Atlanta hotels. What I love the most about the staff here is their genuine, heartfelt desire to please you. Everyone supports each other and it shows in the overall attitude of the employees.

    I sat in the lobby for a few minutes watching the staff efficiently check-in about 20 different guests in a matter of five minutes. It was quick, yet highly attentive and friendly. It was a great first impression that carried through my experience.

    There is a huge and fabulous rooftop deck that houses an eight foot deep pool. It is a great place to relax or even host events.

    Onsite, there is the Grille at 590 and Rathskella, a German pub. With an event they call the “Taste of Melia” their dedication to culture is evident throughout the property.

    As of April 2012, the hotel is very dated but that is about to change. The Melia’ is gearing up for a $27 million renovation that is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2013. I am convinced that when completed this will be a tour de force in the Atlanta hotel industry. In the meantime, this is still a convenient, clean, and customer-oriented hotel that will not disappoint.
